If you love '80s movies or classic comedy films, you're sure to enjoy this list of "The Princess Bride" quotes. Filled with such notable talents as Cary Elwes, Billy Crystal, Mandy Patinkin and Andre the Giant, "The Princess Bride" is the retelling of a fairy tale story from a grandfather to his sick grandson. Filled with great one-liners and funny moments, you're sure to find yourself using some of these great "The Princess Bride" quotes in your life. Try some of these for starters but watch the film for more good examples.

  1. A kissing book? One of the most popular "The Princess Bride" quotes is spoken by a young Fred Savage when he asks his grandpa simply, "Is this a kissing book?" Perish the thought! Who would want a kissing book?
  2. True love. Another well-known "The Princess Bride" quote is the words so commonly uttered by farm boy Wesley whenever the beautiful Buttercup had a task for him. He would always respond with a simple, "As you wish."
  3. Hello. Fans of famous actor Mandy Patinkin are sure to recognize this well-known "The Princess Bride" quote spoken by a young Spaniard with a score to settle "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." This is perhaps one of the most often repeated of all "The Princess Bride" quotes.
  4. Delays. If you want a great line about true love, try this "The Princess Bride" quote spoken by Wesley to his beloved Buttercup, "Death can never stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while." Hopeful not a rush hour traffic-style delay.
  5. Lies. One of the best of "The Princess Bride" quotes is Wesley's simple, yet dynamic, "We are men of action. Lies do not become us." While it almost seems too serious for this film, it's perfect.
  6. Buying brandy. Some of the best "The Princess Bride" quotes come from the small Sicilian Vizzini. Insulting Inigo, he spouts off, "Never forget this: When I found you, you were so slobbering drunk, you couldn't even buy Brandy!"
  7. Poetry. If you're looking for some of the funniest "The Princess Bride" quotes and you like Fezzik and Inigo, try remembering some of their rhyming games. "Fezzik, are there rocks ahead?" / "If there are, we all be dead." Of course, Vizzini does not approve and threatens, "No more rhymes now, I mean it." Fezzik rhymes back, "Anybody want a peanut?"
  8. Pain. One of the true quotes from "The Princess Bride" is where the Man in Black tells Buttercup, "Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something." Sometimes bridges, other times Avon.
  9. R.O.U.S. Another great "The Princess Bride" quote comes straight out of the Fire Swamp. Do you remember the R.O.U.S.s? "Rodents of Unusual Size? I don't think they exist." Of course, Wesley says this just as one of the creatures attacks him.
  10. Mawage. No list of "The Princess Bride" quotes would be complete without the Clergyman. Who's he? Don't you remember his quote: "Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday. Mawage, that bwessed awangement, that dweam wifin a dweam."
