Vizzini: Inconceivable! Give her to me. Catch up with us quickly!
Fezzik: What do I do?
Vizzini: Finish him, finish him - your way.
Fezzik: Oh, good. My way. Thank you Vizzini. Which way's my way?
Vizzini: Pick up one of those rocks, get behind the boulder. In a few minutes, the man in black will come running around the bend. The minute his head is in view, HIT IT WITH THE ROCK!
Fezzik: My way is not very sportsmanlike.

Inigo Montoya: You seem a decent fellow... I hate to kill you.
Westley: You seem a decent fellow... I hate to die.

Vizzini: I can't compete with you physically, and you're no match for my brains.

Grandson: Grandpa? Maybe you could come over and read it to me again tomorrow?

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 in against a Sicilian, when death is on the line." [Laughs and dies.].

Westley: A few more steps and we'll be safe in the fire swamp.
Buttercup: We'll never survive!
Westley: Nonsense. You're only saying that because no one ever has.

Buttercup: I know who you are. Your cruelty reveals everything. You're the Dread Pirate Roberts. Admit it.
Westley: With pride. What can I do for you?
Buttercup: You can die slowly. Cut into a thousand pieces.
Westley: Tsk, tsk, tsk. Hardly complimentary, your highness. Why loose your venom on me?
Buttercup: You killed my love.
Westley: It's possible. I've killed a lot of people.

Miracle Max: Get back, witch.
Valerie: I'm not a witch, I'm your wife. But after what you just said, I'm not even sure I want to be that anymore.
Miracle Max: You never had it so good.

Inigo Montoya: Are you the Miracle Max who worked for the King all those years?
Miracle Max: The king's stinking son fired me. Thank you for bringing up such a painful subject. While you're at it, why don't you give me a nice paper cut and pour lemon juice on it?

Westley: You mean, you'll put down your rock and I'll put down my sword, and we'll try and kill each other like civilized people?

Westley: Give us the gate key.
Yellin: I have no gate key.

Yellin: Oh, you mean this gate key.

Fezzik: It's not my fault being the biggest and the strongest. I don't even exercise.

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

Westley: I do not envy the headache that you will have when you awake, but till then, sleep well and dream of large women.

Continuity mistake: After Montoya has hauled Wesley to the top of the cliff, he drops the rope on the ground, where it lands forming a couple of coils. You can see this as Wesley sits down and Montoya leans up against the wall. However, when they start their duel, the rope is hanging straight off the cliff, without any coils in it.

Question: Has anyone verified that Christopher Guest has six fingers on his right hand in every scene? There are a few shots (other than the one showing off all the fingers) where his right hand is visible, but the black gloves make a finger count difficult.

Answer: Not meaning to shoot down your idea, but since he is wearing gloves, even if the gloves only had five fingers, it would still not be a mistake as he could easily tuck his two smallest fingers into one of the glove's fingers. I would guess that this is why he wears gloves throughout the film, as the director would surely not have gone to the trouble of making 6-fingered gloves, and the actor does not really have 6 fingers.
