Ryokkeno : Alternatively, Neither was poisoned, he took a big snort of one of the most lethal poison powders known to man at the beginning.

Geremy Dunn : NEVER go up against a CICILIAN when DEATH is on the line!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH--'falls over'

Wynonna Carver : I love how he dies mid laugh

Greg P. Yates Jr. : As soon as the battle of wits begins, pay close attention to Buttercups hair in between camera cuts. I've now ruined this scene for you forever, you're welcome!

Isaiah Stoy : This is undoubtedly one of the greatest scenes in cinema history.

Jerry Gu : "Mrs. Underwood, I presume."

David Timmer : You're trying to trick me into giving away something. It won't work.

Jam Lym : The moral of this scene is that true intelligence is not crazy complicated stuff. The answer is usually pretty simple.

Tom Jackal : Truly you have a dizzying intellect

cxsmicz sins : science slumber parties

Jam Lym : Wallace Shawn's signature role.

Samuel Glyn : I just adore the sound synching in this film

Irene Chu : When you are poisoned... you vomit and get nauseous and dizzy... your blood pressure decreases and then you die. You don't just fall over.

Nathaniel Mooney : 0:27 You’re wrong, Vizzini. Westley’s trying to rescue his true love.

Kristin Timoteo : best movie ever

MantisCrawl : 4:40 Omae wa mou shindeiru

Devyn Thomas : Mr. Huph, is that you?

Brandon Galvan : "Inhale this, but do not touch." "I smell nothing." "What you do not smell is called iocane powder. It is odorless, tasteless, dissolves instantly in liquid, and is among the more deadly poisons known to man. In fact, just inhaling a small amount of the powder is enough to kill a grown man within seconds." That would've been enough to end it. I mean, seriously. Who enters into a battle of wits *_to the death_* and then inhales an unknown substance handed to them by someone they just met that day?

Jon : I love this scene the most out of the whole movie especially the look on vizzini's face when he switches goblets lol! Never gets old.

CEC Bloomington : Inconceivable!

Apollo Fell : This is the first time I have understood the joke about the Sicilian and I'm goddamn 25.
