Princess Bride and Pirates of the Carribean

I'm sure someone else has noticed how similar the plots of these two movies are.

Young girl falls in love with young boy. They are separated. Years pass. Young girl is to wed a powerful man whom she doesn't really love. She is kidnapped. The boy that she loved in her youth returns and saves her. All is well in the end. :-P

The classic fairy tale. Probably why both are so popular.

**This random thought brought to you due to the fact that someone in the office said "parlay"

- Both Inigio and Will Turner are fatherless + great swordsmen.
- Both female leads are blonde. ;)

Those are sucky comparisons, but it's all I got at the moment. :P

Boat chases:

The man in black following Vezzini & Co. to the Cliffs of Insanity.

The Black Pearl chasing the Interceptor when Will and Elizabeth take the medallion.

"Murdered by pirates is good."

"I think it would be exciting to meet a pirate."
OR
"'Cheater!'
'Pirate.'"

I could continue...

I'm at work, of course not.

U want just pirates, or any quotes I can pair up from the movies?

Alright, let's see what I can do.
(And the question was only pirate quotes, or any quotes from those 2 movies. Really, w/ those 2, what other movies do u need? : P )

"'I think they're gaining on us.'
'Inconceivable!'"

"'That's impossible! This is the fastest ship in these waters!'
'You can tell them that after they've caught us.'"


"'Surrender!'
'Alright, I accept."

"'Par-sley. Par-snip. Par...'
'Parley?'
'That's it! Parley!'
'Damn to the depths whatever fool thought of parley.'
'That would be the French.'"


"And she realized that all the time he had been saying 'As you wish' what he had really been saying was 'I love you'."

"'I should have told u every day from the first time I laid eyes on you: I love you.'"



And then there are the great swordfighting scenes:
Throwing and catching of swords, jumps and flips, and all the amusing dialog that I'm not gonna quote 'cause it would lose something w/o the action.


There are lots more good quotes from both movies, but those are the only ways I can think of pairing them right now.

NOTE: All quotes came from my memory, so they may not be 100% exact. But I did it w/o cheating!
