Grandpa: When I was your age, television was called books.

Fezzik: I just want you to feel you’re doing well. I hate for people to die embarrassed.

Buttercup: You mock my pain!
Man in Black: Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.

The Man in Black: You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.

Buttercup: I am your servant and I refuse.
Prince Humperdinck: I am you Prince and you cannot refuse.
Buttercup: I am your loyal servant and I just did.
Prince Humperdinck: Refusal means death.

Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Vizzini: You fell victim to one of the classic blunders—the most famous of which is, “Never get involved in a land war in Asia”—but only slightly less well-known is this: “Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line”! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha…[thunk].
