The Princess Bride--the perfect Ironic movie for Catholics and the rest of the human race. Happy anniversary! A sample quotation from the script is our Friday QOTD:
Your princess is quite a winning creature. A trifle simple, perhaps. Her appeal is undeniable.
I know, the people are quite taken with her. It's odd, but when I hired
Vizzini to have her murdered on our engagement day, I thought that was
clever. But it's going to be so much more moving when I strangle her on
our wedding night. Once Guilder is blamed, the nation will truly be
outraged - they'll demand we go to war.
[snickers, then examines a huge tree] Now where is that secret knot? It's impossible to find...
[he finds it and the tree opens to reveal a hidden passage]
Ah. Are you coming down into the pit? Wesley's got his strength back. I'm starting him on the machine tonight.
[sincerely] 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;
Get some rest. If you haven't got your health, then you haven't got anything.
OK, if that just sounds dark, you have to see the movie.
