--> '''Humperdinck:''' You truly love each other, and so you might have been truly happy. Not one couple in a century has that chance, no matter what the storybooks say... And so I think no man in a century will suffer as greatly as you will.

* MoralEventHorizon:
** Vizzini crosses it by mentioning the little detail where the Sicilian Crowd kills Buttercup, and later cements it by holding her at knifepoint when the Man in Black, having beaten both Inigo and Fezzik in succession, gets too close before their battle of wits, just so that his death by iocane--while he's still laughing in perceived triumph, no less!--can be considered all the more satisfying. Indeed, after everything it's not much of a surprise that he's the only one in the Sicilian Crowd to cark it in his showdown with the Man in Black.
** [[EvilPrince Prince Humperdinck]] crosses when he cranks the LifeDrain machine [[UpToEleven up to 50]] to [[MurderTheHypotenuse torture his romantic rival Westley to death]]. Even [[TheDragon Count Rugen]], who invented the machine in the first place, [[EvenEvilHasStandards thought that was a bit much]].

* {{Narm}}: Fezzik's MookHorrorShow while wearing the holocaust cloak is intended to be played seriously while contrasted against the comical scene with the Impressive Clergyman... but ''both'' sides of the scene come across as somewhat comical thanks to the fact that André the Giant actually ''has'' [[ElmuhFuddSyndwome the exact same speech impediment]] that the clergyman does, and has to call himself "the Dwead Piwate Woberts".

** Humperdinck responds to the first part of Buttercup's ReasonYouSuckSpeech with the very cold, quiet, and well-delivered, "I would not say such things if I were you." After she follows up with an even more nasty and contemptuous speech, he repeats his words in a hammy, growling rage, and...proceeds to grab her arm, take her down a hall, and ''lock her in her room'' before going to kill Westley. It works for a villain as wimpy as he is, but for those who expected him to do something far worse to her (forgetting he had to wait till no one would blame him for her death, and intended to do it after they were married), it rather falls flat.

** Fezzik's discussion of "fighting half a dozen people" seems prescient when you consider the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Rumble_(1989) 1989 Royal Rumble]] two years later, in which Andre The Giant takes out the first few fighters.

** The old lady. ''Boooo!'' And if you can believe it, that was the ''tamest'' of Buttercup's nightmares in the book! [[note]]Some of the other ones include an imagined future baby daughter failing to breastfeed from her because her betrayal of Wesley was so vile it turned her very milk rancid, causing the baby to ''collapse into ash in her arms''.[[/note]]

* RetroactiveRecognition: Fans of {{Series/Columbo}} and Series/TheWonderYears should get a kick out of seeing Savage & Falk play off one another. Who knew the Detective had a Grandson?

** The [[SeaMonster Shrieking Eels]] from the film. They were [[ThreateningShark sharks]] only mentioned in passing [[AdaptationSpeciesChange in the book]], but in the film we get to see and [[HellIsThatNoise hear them]]. To make matters worse, we [[NothingIsScarier hear them more than we see them]]. And according to Vizzini, their shrieks "always grow louder when they're about to feed on human flesh".
