Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Seven. The king bats can't be too big if Inigo had seven on his sword, huh?
Wild dog. The Machine took seven times as many years off of the dog.
Go back to the beginning. Fool! Fool! Back to the beginning is the rule!
80 pounds. I don't think they exist.
Hammersmith. Hammersmith was 'this little lump of land attached to the rear of King Lotharon's holdings'.
A giant oak. I guess the giant oaks that auditioned for the part in the movie didn't have the right qualities, so the director went in another direction, casting a boulder instead.
Greenland. Greenland was the loneliest place on earth, with one person for every twenty square miles of real estate.
Mongolia. Their last words to him were, 'We've done everything we can for you, Fezzik, good luck'.
Potion ladler. Valerie never was a witch, but every Miracle Man needed one, so she let him call her a witch in public, and learned enough of the witch trade to pass herself off as one under pressure.
Buttercup's Baby: S. Morgenstern's Glorious Examination of Courage Matched Against the Death of the Heart. 'Buttercup's Baby' is most likely never going to be finished. Goldman says he's happy with the first chapter, but has no plans to continue it. Also, part of the first chapter is borrowed from another novel of his, 'Control'.
Yeste. Yeste, the famous swordmaker, lived in Madrid.
Horse. Buttercup was never long on imagination.
A French scullery maid named Annette. Annette worked in Paris for the Duke and Duchess de Guiche, and had a weakness for chocolate.
She was baldheaded. When Humperdinck found out, he said, 'Madam, feel free to flee!'
Rabies. Don't try telling a Turk that the fruit bat from Indonesia is the biggest in the world.
Arabian Garstini. Though shorter than the African Rock Python and lighter than the Orinoco Anaconda, the Arabian Garstini was quicker and more ravenous than either of them.
Sandy Sterling. I wonder if Ilene liked the starlet story.
Bastia. Bastia was the only person designated as a Wizard until Inigo came around.
Take his brain away. Westley would think of Buttercup. Her autumn hair, her perfect skin...
He gained a pound his first afternoon out of the womb. Babies usually lose three or four ounces, and it takes them a week or so to gain it back.
|(This is from the movie, not the book, but I had to put it in anyway!) After Buttercup tells Humperdinck he is "nothing but a coward with a heart full of fear," what does he reply?||William Goldman's "The Princess Bride"
"I would not say such things if I were you!". I had to put this one in there because it's one of my favorite lines to impersonate.
"Oh, my Westley, so do I!". This is the last line of the book before Morgenstern's "original" ending.
"Dammit, woman! You are the property of the Dread Pirate Roberts!". So, Westley wasn't always sensitive. Could he have been an effective Dread Pirate Roberts otherwise? I don't think so.
Because Vizzini told him to go there if something went wrong. Vizzini told Inigo and Fezzik that if a job went wrong, they were supposed to go back to the beginning, and the Thieves' Forrest was where they got the job, so it was the beginning for them. Vizzini was supposed to meet him there, but of course, he was dead.
Cover it. By doing this Inigo lasted through the duel.
Count Rugen's wife. Buttercup got jealous of Rugen's wife when she saw her go with Westley for a tour of the farm. This is also when she noticed how studly Westley really was.
