It's iocaine powder, I'd bet my life on it

*comments now closed - giveaway winner to be announced soon - thanks for playing!*


Many thanks to Tiffany for inspiring this silly idea of mine…


princess-bride (Google)

Goshdurnit you guys… I am just blown away by how many of y’all recognized the ROUS (Rodents Of Unusual Size) from The Princess Bride on my last post.

Or maybe y’all have just figured out that most of my goofy references are from that favorite… so every time I say “Fifty OnceUponAMiracle points”, y’all are like Pavlov’s dogs and instinctively yell “The Princess Bride!”

Okay, I did not just insult y’all by calling you Pavlov’s dogs.  Sorry.  I mean, you don’t drool every time a bell rings… right?

Anyhoo… seeing as the last giveaway was so much fun, let’s do another!

Might I dangle some of my native caffeinated goodness before your nostrils to tempt you to join in the fun?
Okay, that just sounded totally weird, but I really just meant to say that a $15 Starbucks card would be yumminess, right?

Cuz right now is a great time to get a frappucino!
frappucino


And yes, we are true Pacific Northwest folks… our kiddo could say “FRAPPUCHEEEEENO Pleeeeease”, before he figured out how to feed himself.  Parent fail.

Sooo… let’s make this fun!

Drop me a comment if you are a follower – that will be one entry.

And then every line you can quote from The Princess Bride is another entry! 

Please make sure you check the comments above yours to make sure that line isn’t already taken (just to keep it fair and keep spammers from copying).

Let’s wrap this up Saturday night by my bedtime (which most assuredly is not 8pm :)

(And an extra entry to the first person who tells me who the quote from this post title is from!)

So… go forth and quote… and get caffeinated!

Tiffany said...

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

HeatherOz said...

Hello?
Prince Humperdink said that!

HeatherOz said...

and after that he said
"and there are the princess' footprints. She was alive an hour ago. If she is otherwise, when I find her, I shall be VERY PUT OUT!"

HeatherOz said...

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

Tiffany said...

INCONCEIVABLE

HeatherOz said...

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

Tiffany said...

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

HeatherOz said...

oops, tiffany and I are competing for quotes! I didn't see hers before I posted mine!

I am not left handed either!

Tiffany said...

Tyrone, you know how much I love watching you work, but I've got my country's 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder and Guilder to frame for it; I'm swamped.

Tiffany said...

Ok, this is seriously one of my most favorite movies EVER!!! And one of the best quotes is:

But it's so simple. All I have to do is divine from what I know of you: are you the sort of man who would put the poison into his own goblet or his enemy's? Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me

Tiffany said...

And Miracle Max is the best too!

The King's stinking son fired me, and thank you so much 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? We're closed.

Tiffany said...

Ok, I really need to go to bed now. I could do this all night. Seriously, thanks for letting me get out all those quotes. I feel better now. Maybe I lost some weight? I should go check. And go to bed. Before I think of more quotes. Because then I could stay up all night. Ok, I am done now.

P.S. - I LOVE THIS CONTEST!!!

Melissa said...

Oh now, never seen the movie! But I love you dearly!! Does that count????!!!!

Melissa said...

and I am a follower!! Mwahhhh!

HeatherOz said...

Is Tiffany done? LOL
one more for me:
"Farm Boy........fetch me that pitcher."

Dyann said...

Oh, my sweet Westley! What have I done?

Dyann said...

Ow! Ooh! Ow! Ugh! Ooh!

Dyann said...

"Excuse me. Excuse me. Fezzig?"
"Everybody MOOOOOOVVVE!"

Dyann said...

Fezzig, tear his arms off.

Dyann said...

Mawwaige. Mawwaige is what bwings us togevah today.

Dyann said...

That bwessed awwangement. A dweam wivin a dweam.

Dyann said...

Wuv, twooOOoo wuuuuv.

Dyann said...

Oh, you mean this gate key.

Dyann said...

Won't that be nice. She kissed me!

Dyann said...

"To the death!"
"NO! To the PAIN!!"

Dyann said...

Hello, Lady!

Dyann said...

"Are there rocks ahead?"
"If there are, we'll all be dead!"

Dyann said...

It's probably just a local fisherman out for a midnight cruise in eel-infested waters.
(Okay, that's not a direct qoute.)

Dyann said...

Yeah, yeah. You're very smart. Now shut up.

Dyann said...

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!

Dyann said...

True love is the greatest thing on earth. Except maybe for a nice MLT, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe. So perky. No. What he really said was 'to blave,' which means to bluff.

Dyann said...

Rachel, I'm not really vying for the gift card, but this is fun and I could seriously go on all night.

Dyann said...

"Man and wife! Say 'man and wife.'"
"Man and wife."

He & Me + 3 said...

Good lord, all the good lines are taken. But i follow your blog. I hope that counts :)

passionofthemom said...

A Loyal Follower I Am. =)

passionofthemom said...

A book?

That's right. When I was your age, television was called books. And this is a special book. It was the book my father used to read to me when I was sick, and I used to read it to your father. And today I'm gonna read it to you.

Has it got any sports in it?

Are you kidding? Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles...

Doesn't sound too bad. I'll try to stay awake.

Oh, well, thank you very much, very nice of you. Your vote of confidence is overwhelming.

passionofthemom said...

He's right on top of us. I wonder if he is using the same wind we are using...

passionofthemom said...

Good night, Westley. Good work. Sleep well. I'll most likely kill you in the morning.

passionofthemom said...

WRONG! Your ears you keep and I'll tell you why. So that every shriek of every child at seeing your hideousness will be yours to cherish. Every babe that weeps at your approach, every woman who cries out, "Dear God! What is that thing!" will echo in your perfect ears. That is what to the pain means. It means I leave you in anguish, wallowing in freakish misery forever.

passionofthemom said...

Since the invention of the kiss, there have been five kisses rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind. The end.

passionofthemom said...

It's possible, pig, I might be bluffing. It's conceivable, you miserable, vomitous mass, that I'm only lying here because I lack the strength to stand. But, then again, perhaps I have the strength after all.

(rises to point sword at Humperdinck)

DROP...YOUR...SWORD!

passionofthemom said...

Your true love lives, and you marry another. True love saved her in the Fire Swamp, and she treated it like garbage. And that's what she is, the Queen of Refuse. So go bow down to her if you want, bow to her. Bow to the Queen of Slime, the Queen of Filth, the Queen of Putrescence. Boo!! Boo!! Rubbish! Filth! Slime! Muck! Boo!! Boo!!! Boo!!!

passionofthemom said...

Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

passionofthemom said...

Beautiful isn't it? It took me half a lifetime to invent it. I'm sure you've discovered my deep and abiding interest in pain. Presently I'm writing the definitive work on the subject, so I want you to be totally honest with me on how the machine makes you feel. This being our first try, I'll use the lowest setting.

(activates the machine, Westley writhes in tremendous pain)

As you know, the concept of the suction pump is centuries old. Really that's all this is, except that instead of sucking water, I'm sucking life. I've just sucked one year of your life away. I might one day go as high as five, but I really don't know what that would do to you. So, let's just start with what we have. What did this do to you? Tell me. And remember, this is for posterity, so be honest. How do you feel?

(Westley screams in anguish)

Interesting.

passionofthemom said...

He didn't fall? INCONCEIVABLE!!!

You keep using that word. But I do not think it means what you think it means.

WONDERFUL contest, dear Rachel!!!! This has just been so much fun for me...now I think I must go and watch TPB. LOL I had to search long and hard in my brain for quotes that hadn't already been used, so it was a real mental jog for me! Kudos!!! =D

(And the deleted one was a repeat of the INCONCEIVABLE! quote. FYI.) ;)

Leiah said...

OK, I'm cracking up at all these comments. I guess that means I really should finally see this movie.

And sweet, sweet dear Rachel - what do you think uber-competitive Julie is going to do when she gets out of surgery and sees you've racked up 8,400 comments and she can't type? Me either but I'm definitely sticking around to find out. That and because I loves you! hee hee hee

The Simple Life said...

Okay - I've seen this movie, but not enough times to quote it!

LOL Love these comments, I feel like I don't have to watch the movie again!

shmode said...

I'm with the above commenter, I read the book and watched the movie, but not enough to know the quotes by heart (well, besides the 'my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die', I know that one). I do follow though!

Alicia W. said...

I'm still around and trying to catch up on your blog today.. I have never seen the movie and could have totally googled a quote but figured honesty is the best policy, lol. :)

Jenilee said...

I am a new follower! and the marriage quote is my fav but it's already on here... I'll have to think a minute...

Jenilee said...

Westley "Death can not stop true love! all it can do is delay it for awhile."

Jenilee said...

what about the booing lady? Booo Booo Booo! :)

LMC502 said...

I'm a GFC follower :)

LMC502 said...

Favorite quote:
Westley: I told you I would always come for you. Why didn't you wait for me?
Buttercup: Well... you were dead.

K- floortime lite mama said...

Crystal @ Semi-Crunchy Mama said...

I'm a follower! And I'd love to add more comments with quotes, but I can't, because I'm just laughing to hard reading through the quotes that everyone else has already submitted.
This is the best contest ever!

Beth Zimmerman said...

My favorite movie of all time meets my favorite blog of all time and the laughter begins!

Foursons said...

You know I follow!

Foursons said...

Don't think this one has been used and it makes me laugh because my boys cover their eyes and say "Ewwwww!" when a kissing scene comes on a movie.

The Grandson: [interrupting]Hold it, hold it. What is this? Are you trying to trick me? Where's the sports?
[suspiciously]
The Grandson: Is this a kissing book?
Grandpa: Wait, just wait.
The Grandson: Well, when does it get good?
Grandpa: Keep your shirt on, and let me read.
