This October 15th marks the 30th anniversary of Princess Bride, the iconic 1987 film that made us all geek out and want to find a love like Westley and Buttercup’s. And to honor the rom-com’s anniversary and limited re-release in movie theaters, we’ve rounded up our 10 favorite quotes from the film. Yes, we’ve got the oft-quoted “You killed my father. Prepare to die,” but we’ve also tossed in some lesser-known lines, too.

After reading these, you might just be inspired to head to the movie theater this Sunday and watch Princess Bride one more time.

1That’s deep

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

2Cutting right to the point

Inigo Montoya: Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.

3Heart eyes

Westley: Hear this now: I will always come for you.
Buttercup: But how can you be sure?
Westley: This is true love. You think this happens every day?

4Simple question

Inigo Montoya: I do not mean to pry, but you don’t by any chance happen to have six fingers on your right hand?

5As you wish

Grandpa [narrating]: Nothing gave Buttercup as much pleasure as ordering Westley around.
Buttercup: Farm boy, polish my horse’s saddle. I want to see my face shining in it by morning.
Westley: As you wish.

6When decent fellows meet

Inigo Montoya: You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you.
Man in Black: You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.

7Get used to it

Inigo Montoya: Who are you?
Man in Black: No one of consequence.
Inigo Montoya: I must know…
Man in Black: Get used to disappointment.


Vizzini: He didn’t fall? INCONCEIVABLE.
Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

9Watch out for the R.O.U.S.

Buttercup: Westley, what about the ROUSes?
Westley: Rodents of Unusual Size? I think they don’t exist.

10We love a love story

Grandpa [narrating]: Since the invention of the kiss, there have been five kisses that rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind.
