As you wish!
It's been 25 years since The Princess Bride's magical tale first stole audiences' hearts.
To celebrate the anniversary – and the film's Blu-ray release on Wednesday – the cast reunited for a screening at Alice Tully Hall in New York on Tuesday.
Robin Wright and Cary Elwes, whose on-screen love made the film a cult classic, joined Mandy Patinkin (Inigo Montoya), Chris Sarandon (Prince Humperdinck), Wallace Shawn (Vizzini), Carol Kane (Valerie), Bill Crystal (Miracle Max) and director Rob Reiner.

A true trailblazer, Nora Ephron leaves behind a legacy of always knowing the right (and wittiest) thing to say. She was "an expert in all the departments of living well," according to Meryl Streep – one of many paying tribute to the late author-journalist-screenwriter-director, who died Tuesday at 71.
"You could call on her for anything: doctors, restaurants, recipes, speeches, or just a few jokes, and we all did it, constantly," Streep – who was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her role as Julia Child in Ephron's Julie & Julia (2009) – wrote in an email to The New York Times. "Nora just looked at every situation and cocked her head and thought, ‘Hmmmm, how can I make this more fun?'"
Streep wasn't the only celebrity to remember Ephron fondly.

Nora Ephron, one of the most powerful figures in Hollywood as the creative force behind such blockbusters as You've Got Mail, Sleepless in Seattle and When Harry Met Sally, died on Tuesday at age 71.
The three-time Oscar nominee "passed away June 26, 2012 at 7:40 pm at New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center surrounded by her family. The cause of death was acute myeloid leukemia," her family tells PEOPLE in a statement.
"We thank you all for your thoughts."

Considering that last year's Oscars were so thumpingly bad – co-host James Franco behaved as if he'd been taken out of the freezer, left on the counter and unevenly thawed – last night's broadcast was a welcome relief.
The strength of the show ultimately rests on the heat of the biggest contests – I doubt Americans were on the edge of their seats wondering whether the cosmically inscrutable Tree of Life could score an upset over the French silent The Artist – but the production looked great and flowed well.
Billy Crystal was hosting for his ninth time, brought on after Eddie Murphy dropped out in November, and it felt no different from his seventh, eighth or (if one were to project) fifty-seventh time.

Is the ninth time still a charm?
More than 20 years since he first played host in 1990, Billy Crystal once again flexed his funny bone – and his vocal cords – for Sunday night's 84th annual Academy Awards.
In case you missed the host's latest turn on the Oscar stage, PEOPLE is breaking down some of his best moments and one-liners.
Taking a jab at Hollywood elite early in the show, Crystal deadpanned, "Tonight, enjoy yourself, because nothing can take the sting out of the world's economic problems like watching millionaires present each other with gold statues."

Jennifer Lopez dazzled on the red carpet before the Academy Awards in a sparkling Zuhair Murad gown.
But when the American Idol judge took the stage with Cameron Diaz to present the Oscars for Best Costume Design and Makeup, her look – and that dangerously plunging neckline – wasn't so best-dressed-list worthy.
