I really do think that love is the best thing in the world, except for cough drops. But I also have to say, for the umpty-umpth time, that life isn’t fair. It’s just fairer than death, that’s all. - William Goldman, The Princess Bride

It’s from The Princess Bride:

“True love is the greatest thing in the world…
Except for cough drops,…
Everyone knows that.”

I was pretty sure I remembered it from the Princess Bride, but I wasn’t sure and checked at google. The first link I posted confirmed my impression, but I found several more just to double check myself.



i knew someone would know, big thanks to mattk and cblackhand!

Sidebar, please.

Why does Deimos get laid tonight by supplying the source of this quotation??

And, much more to the point, do those of us who either own the videotape, or have seen this film theatrically, stand to get so much as a warm rubby out of the deal??? :smiley:


hmmm. No posts from Deimos in the last four hours. I wonder if it worked? :stuck_out_tongue:

hmmph. all that trouble people went to for Deimos. you’d think he’d let us know what happened. :wink:
