I introduced my daughter to The Princess Bride last night, unbeknownst to my wife (who was out working late). She’s seen only the first 2/3 of the movie, just once.
Then today, at dinner, she runs up to my wife and says,
“Mommy, it’s INCONCEIVABLE!!”
Shocked, my wife says, “What’s that?”
Mackenzie then, noticing mommy must have a misunderstood word, says,
“Mommy – ‘inconceivable’. It’s like ‘Cinders and ashes!!'”
(obviously terminology used by Thomas the Tank Engine is the universally-understandable language)
She then asked mommy, “Mommy – what did the man in black DO?” Mommy thinks, “Climbed a rope?” “YES mommy, he climbed a rope. And then he was fighting the BIG RAT! Aaannd he got some blood.”
Mommy then asks, “Oh. And what did Vizzini do?” Mackenzie replies, “Oh, he drank some BAD JUICE, and then he went over.”
Now, I’d usually put these quotes on my Thus Spake Mackenzie page, but this one was a bit too good. 🙂
1 thought on “Inconceivable!”
Next she’ll be rhyming rings around Fezzik!
