'Princess Bride' star: Every woman wants to hear 'As you wish'

“The Princess Bride” is having a moment. The 1987 movie just appeared in an Entertainment Weekly reunion feature, was parodied by Ben Stiller on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend and “Good Morning America” brought the film’s cast together last week.

The morning show reunited most of the film’s actors during "80s Week" (minus Fred Savage, Mandy Patinkin and deceased stars André the Giant and Peter Falk), and the cast shared that fans are still quoting the movie to them 24 years later.

Wallace Shawn, who played Vizzini, said that people recite lines and ask him to say “inconceivable” on a daily basis. “Each person thinks that it’s an idea of his own,” the actor commented.

Cary Elwes, who played the film’s hero Westley, joked that his most famous line will follow him to his grave: “I think when I die, they’ll say on my gravestone ‘as you wish.’” He added, "Every woman wants to hear that."

Billy Crystal shared that people often remember his ad-libbed “MLT” line. In the film, his character Miracle Max says he loves “a nice MLT — mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean.”

“It happened just the other day,” the comedian said of a fan encounter. “I was eating, and he leaned over, he whispered in my ear, and he said ‘leeeaan.’”

What’s your favorite “Princess Bride” line?

    My favorite line from this movie would have to be; "Get used to disappointment."

    I love reading these! This movie may be the most quotable ever. I love it. Here are a couple of favorites:

    "Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up."
    "Have you da wing?"

    Westley: I mean, if we only had a wheelbarrow, that would be something.
    Inigo: Where we did we put that wheelbarrow the albino had?
    Fezzik: Over the albino, I think.
    Westley: Well, why didn't you list that among our assets in the first place?

    Whenever I'm facing an intractable problem, "If only I had a wheelbarrow!" is my standard coping method. 😀

    A number of entries already listed some of the best lines, but I also love how the grandson groans over the "Kissing" book & how Max's wife runs around the cottage yelling "Humperdinck" multiple times.

    Grandson: Aw, no. No, please.
    Grandfather: What is it? What's the matter?
    Grandson: They're kissing again. Do we have to hear the kissing part?

    Valerie: He's afraid. Ever since Prince Humperdinck fired him, his confidence is shattered.
    Miracle Max: Why'd you say that name? You promised me that you would never say that name!
    Valerie: What... Humperdinck?
    Miracle Max: Aaaigh!
    Valerie: Humperdinck! Humperdinck! Humperdinck! Humperdinck! Humperdinck! Humperdinck! Humperdinck! Humperdinck!

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."

    2. "Get some rest. If you haven't got your health, you haven't got anything." (re: "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.")

    When I say good night to my girlfreind, I alwasy follow with "Sleep well, most likely kill you in the morning"

    When Wesley wakes up in the "Pit of Despair" looks up see's the worker and asks the worker where he is.
    The worker starts speaking in a very deep scary, sinister voice, then clears his throat and speaks in a normal voice: hilarious.

    B: Well, you were dead.
    W: Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for awhile.
    B: I'll never doubt again.

    Every time my son and his friends leave the house, I wave and shout "Have fun storming the castle". My son is 23.
    This film is a big family favorite. My husba d will often say - "My name is Inegra Montoyo, you killed my father, Prepare to die".
    We find our selves om a weekly basis quoting this film. So to all Beware of rodents of unusual size! Kg.

    Perhaps one of my favorite films of all time. I believe all my favorite lines have been said, including the warning about getting in a land war with Asia and "TO THE PAIN!" I'm also very partial to the "As you wish" that's stuttered out as Westley rolls down the hill.

    The article says Ben Stiller parodied the movie in the SNL this past weekend. I just watched the show on nbc.com and didn't see anything. I've googled and youtubed and still can't find this mysterious bit. Anyone know about it? I didn't actually watch the monologue, but a review I read said it was a take off of Willy Wonka, so I didn't think it was in there...

      Found this description of the SNL sketch. It states the video is not on NBC.com, speculating the reason as multiple copyrighted show tunes being used in the sketch.

    I read the book because it's written by one of the favorite authors years before the movie came out and was more than pleased with the what they did for the movie - in fact, it was better than the book (which is usually impossible). Everyone in it was perfect for the role and the story. When it's being shown on TV, I watch it, even though I've seen it at least 25+ times.
