Happy 30th anniversary to The Princess Bride!

Out-of-context quote from this episode: “I think the movie’s tone changes a lot if he ties a man to a chair and slowly disfigures him.”

Tripp watched this movie three times in a 24 hour period, Andre the Giant fun facts abound, Fred Savage is eating Doritos as a sick kid, beautiful mom mullets, Peter Falk should have read bedtime stories professionally, Cary Elwes looks like he’s from the 40s, Tripp pitches a starring role for Wallace Shawn, Andre the Giant offers up peanuts, Andre the Giant punches a practical eel (new band name!), Wallace Shawn in a papoose, Some weird stuff about the Buttercup/Wesley relationship, a magnificent stunt fall, Robin Wright needs to get involved in the gosh dang rodent fight, a weird milking machine steals some of Wesley’s life, Billy Crystal vamps, a quick plan for castle siege is devised and Andrew advocates for dismemberment!
