So if Blogiversary Bash is all about celebrating our favorite things in film/television, how could I not post something about The Princess Bride? This movie literally has something for everyone–action, adventure, young Cary Elwes, hilarity, good performances, young Cary Elwes, good dialogue, pirates, young Cary Elwes, a giant, a love story…Did I mention young Cary Elwes? I am thoroughly convinced this is the perfect movie. Or at least I was convinced until a coworker informed me that she actually hates it…What’s up with that?! I hope you guys don’t hate Princess Bride because you’re about to get quote smacked with it. Rather than a review, I wanted to share a few of the many iconic quotes in this much-loved film.
#1: Any time Westley says this:
#2: The rhyming game:
#3: Vizzini’s abuse of this word:
#4: When this gentlemanly sass happens:
#5: Fezzik disapproving of “his way:”
Vizzini: Finish him. Finish him, your way.
Fezzik: Oh good, my way. Thank you Vizzini…what’s my way?
Vizzini: Pick up one of those rocks, get behind a boulder, in a few minutes the man in black will come running around the bend, the minute his head is in view, hit it with the rock.
#6: Westley’s good wishes for Fezzik:
#7: All of this exchange, of course:
#8: And when Westley meets the Albino:
#9: This sound bit of advice to the prince:
Prince Humperdinck: Tyrone, you know how much I love watching you work, but I’ve got my country’s 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder and Guilder to frame for it; I’m swamped.
#10: When this nightmare lady blasts Buttercup:
#11: When Miracle Max says this (totally ad-libbed by Billy Crystal):
Miracle Max: Sonny, true love is the greatest thing in the world–except for…
#12: This cheerful send-off:
#13: Best. Clergyman. Ever:
#14: Westley’s epic “To the Pain” speech:
#15: This final quote, which is beyond adorable:
The Grandson: Grandpa, maybe you could come over and read it again to me tomorrow.
#16: And, of course, the undisputed king of Princess Bride quotes:
Watch that scene in all it’s glory here:
There are so many other things from this movie that deserve a mention, but I’ll restrict myself to these. Do you guys love The Princess Bride, too? What are your favorite quotes/moments? Tell me all about it! Anyway, so that’s the first movie I wanted to celebrate. Next up: you guys! Something very, very special coming your way tomorrow…Stay tuned. 🙂

Thanks, Cindy! So glad to be finding so many other Princess Bride fans! Cheers! 🙂
I’ve never seen this (sorry!) but I know the tall guy with curly hair as Andre The Giant! Us wrestling fans go a little mental when we see one of our own doing anything else other than wrestling, haha. I’ll need to check the film out!
ADAM. Go watch this film RIGHT NOW!!!!!
There’s almost too many quotes in The Princess Bride!
It’s not a bad problem to have. 🙂
This is one of the most enjoyable films to draw quotes from. Great job 😀

GREAT POST Cara Gale!!!! I LOVE IT!!!! (This is one of my favorite movies)
THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY. 😀 There aren’t even boobs or blood or guts!!!
Blimey, Eric! 😀
I love EVERYTHING about this movie. And Westley is utterly swoonworthy. “Mawwaige….”
Young Cary Elwes was the dreamiest. And I’m pretty sure that wedding scene is the best. 🙂
The Princess Bride is too much awesomeness. In fact, I’m almost disappointed with myself for featuring this movie already on my Throwback Thursday segment, cuz I so want to review this film again and again!!! Great stuff Cara. 😀
Do a throwback to your Throwback Thursday review! Hahaha! Thanks, Tom! 🙂
Brilliant. Haha. I like the idea. It is possible I might act on that, too. 🙂
Do it!! 😀
This movie is literally perfect. I can’t wait to show it to my daughter dozens of times.
I really, really hope future generations love it as much as the rest of us. But I feel like it’ll age well.
Yeah it’s timeless except for Fred Savage’s room. But I can explain how daddy’s room looked just like that!
Another solid post lady! I must watch this again sometime soon, I have not seen it since I was a kid!
Not since you were a kid?! Omg. You are so deprived. Watch this ASAP.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA oh that is just one way to put it! Yep, not since then. Alright, we will have to bump this up a few slots then.
DO IT!!! 😀
To quote the Lego movie… Everything is awesome! Yes that’s how I feel about this post. Awesomeness!!! Love this movie reminds me of my childhood.
Yaaayyy another Princess Bride fan!! It’s one of the best ones around, that’s for sure. 😀
