"My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

"I do not mean to pry, but you don't by chance happen have 6 fingers on your right hand?"

"You seem a decent fellow; I hate to kill you."
"You seem a decent fellow; I hate to die."

"Why do you wear a mask? Were you burned by acid or something?"

"This is true love - You think this happens every day?"

"Life is pain, highness. Anyone who says otherwise is selling something."

"Wesley and I are joined by the bonds of love, and you cannot track that, not with a thousand blood hounds, and you cannot break it, not with a thousand swords."

"There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. 'Twould be a pity to damage yours."

"As you wish."

"That day, she was amazed to discover that when he was saying 'As you wish', what he meant was, 'I love you.' And even more amazing was the day she realized she truly loved him back. "

"Death cannot stop true love. It can only delay it for a while."

My personal favorite lines of dialogue...

Inigo Montoya: That Vizzini, he can *fuss*. 
Fezzik: Fuss, fuss... I think he like to scream at *us*. 
Inigo Montoya: Probably he means no *harm*. 
Fezzik: He's really very short on *charm*. 
Inigo Montoya: You have a great gift for rhyme. 
Fezzik: Yes, yes, some of the time. 
Vizzini: Enough of that. 
Inigo Montoya: Fezzik, are there rocks ahead? 
Fezzik: If there are, we all be dead. 
Vizzini: No more rhymes now, I mean it. 
Fezzik: Anybody want a peanut?
