I’m so bored with my blog titles. I thought I would do something different this week – each title is a quote from a movie!
Today’s title happens to be from one of my all-time favorites, The Princess Bride. I have a funny little story about that. I’d long be a movie-watcher and movie-quoter. Man doesn’t get it. He thinks it’s strange and he doesn’t remember movie lines like I do. Heck I could have an entire conversation with someone quoting different movies. It’s one of my favorite things to do.
I’d been telling him he needed to see The Princess Bride. It took me several years to finally convince him. So one Saturday night we sat down and watched it. I bit my tongue mostly so I wouldn’t quote the movie right along with it. Once it was over he agreed that it was a pretty good movie. NOW he gets a lot of the stuff I say. Here’s one of my favorite parts of the movie:
Miracle Max: He probably owes you money huh? I’ll ask him.
Inigo Montoya: He’s dead. He can’t talk.
Miracle Max: Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There’s a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there’s usually only one thing you can do.
Inigo Montoya: What’s that?
Miracle Max: Go through his clothes and look for loose change.
Love that movie! What’s your favorite quote?
