Quote From 'The Princess Bride' Reportedly Made Other Passengers Nervous
It's one of the most famous lines from the 1980 cult classic film "The Princess Bride," but when a passenger wearing a T-Shirt with the quote showed up on a Qantas flight last Sunday, it reportedly made several other passengers nervous.
Wyland Mullins was wearing a T-Shirt that has a large image of a name tag like those worn at many social functions saying "Hello, My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." The line was said by Mandy Patinkin, and is one of the best-known from the movie.
But the shirt apparently caused some discomfort on the part of other passengers boarding the airplane. Stuff.co.nz reports that Mullins, a New Zealander living in Sydney, Australia, was among the first to board the plane. Prior to takeoff, he was approached by a flight attendant and asked if he could take the shirt off, because his humor was apparently not appreciated by some of the other passengers. He was told that some were "intimidated" by the shirt.
Mullins reportedly said he didn't have another shirt handy, and a flight attendant said another would try to be located, but none was apparently available. Mullins said the crew didn't make eye contact with him for the entire flight to Auckland, NZ.
When contacted, Qantas said they did not have a record of the incident, so it must have been handled by the crew. In a statement, the airline said "Qantas does have dress standards for passengers travelling on our aircraft ... particularly for slogans which other passengers may find offensive or threatening."
