"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya..."



I was discussing The Princess Bride with someone. 

I am not afraid to say that it is one of my personal favourite movies, so many great moments, so many great characters, so many wonderful lines. One classic scene is that of Inigo Montoya seeking revenge on the wicked, six fingered Count Rugen for the brutal slaying of Inigo’s father when Inigo was a child. Since that time, Inigo has trained as a swordsman and searched for the 6 fingered man, to one day kill him.

I previously posted it for Fathers Day in honour of the line that Inigo proposes to say to the man when he finally finds him:  "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

See the classic scene by clicking on the following link:


My point, however, in positing the above item a second time is to introduce you to a different and contrasting version of the same scene. I will not say anything apart from encouraging you to click on the link:


I also like the comment by someone at the above site:
“Hello. my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
“No, Inigo... I AM YOUR FATHER!"
