• Show Notes

Dear Reader,

The Princess Bride is one of the most quoted and quotable movies of all time. Hands down the best line, of course, is when Mandy Patinkin, on the verge of revenge, intones ever-louder, again and again, “My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”

But another fan favorite is more relevant to the topic of today’s Note. It is Patinkin’s memorable response to the Wallace Shawn character’s repeated exclamation, “Inconceivable!” 

Says a frustrated Inigo Montoya, finally, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
