The Princess Bride t-shirts

My next big idea: A line of t-shirts based on the movie The Princess Bride. That movie has a veritable plethora of shirt ideas. 🙂

These are either exact quotes or phrases based on the movie…


I mock your pain.

As you wish.

Looking for the six-fingered man.

Life is pain.

Rodent of unusual size.

I am not left-handed.

Dread Pirate Roberts.

You killed my father. Prepare to die.

You think true love happens every day?

You seem like a decent fellow. I hate to kill you.

Mostly-dead all day.

I know something you don’t know.

Get used to disappointment.

Give me a nice paper cut and pour lemon juice on it.

No one withstands The Machine.

Death only delays true love.

You warthog-faced buffoon.

Please consider me as an alternative to suicide.

  1. I’ll have one of each, please. Except, you have to give the whole line, “My name is Inigo Montoya. You kill(ed) my father. Prepare to die!”

    One of the best movies ever!


    1. This was exactly what I came to the comments to say. You can’t just skip to the prepare to die part. Sheesh! And you have to say it alltogetherlikethis so it seems like it is coming out really fast and with an accent. 🙂


      1. Oh, the alltogetherlikethat is essential to that quote.

        The first thing in my head this morning was, “Anybody want a peanut?” I think that would make a great t-shirt.

        And, “You always use that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

        The kiss quote at the end is good, but maybe not for a tee-shirt.

        I’m not sure it’s healthy that I’m obsessing over this.


  2. One of my favorite movies! And there are an endless amount of awesome quotes.


  3. Im reminded distinctly of the Monty Python shirt involving the suspicious rabbit. On the front of the shirt it shows a serene rabbit munching on some grass. Below that it reads “Its just a normal rabbit….. isnt it?”. This continues onto the back, the rabbits hair around its mouth is pushed up to show a pair of bloody fangs (blood pooling beneath them) and like three dead knights surrounding it. I think the remainder read “Runaway! Runaway!” with some quote preceding it. Its been a rather long time. Unfortunately, much like the ‘Cthulhu Fish’ bumper sticker, I was unable to find a place where I could buy one.


  4. Great quotes from a great movie! I saw A Princess Bride Board Game the other day. I think it was on Think Geek or Urban Outfitters.


  5. One of our families all-time favorite movies! I’ll buy one!


  6. You can find many of these quotes on some shirts at Some of them are pretty awesome like the Montoya Sword Company and the Have Fun Storming the Castle shirt


Bringeth forth thy pith and vinegar
