Man in Black: All right. Where is the poison? The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide between the cake...or the pie, and find out who is right... and who is dead.
Vizzini: But it's so simple. All I have to do is divine from what I know of you: are you the sort of man who would put the poison into a pie, or a cake? Now, a clever man would put the poison into a pie, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the cake in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the pie in front of me.
Man in Black: You've made your decision then?
Vizzini: Not remotely. Because iocane comes from Australia, as everyone knows, and Australia is entirely peopled with criminals, and criminals are used to having people not trust them, as you are not trusted by me, so I can clearly not choose the cake in front of you.
Man in Black: Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.
Vizzini: Wait til I get going! Now, where was I?
Man in Black: Australia.
Vizzini: Yes, Australia. And you must have suspected I would have known the powder's origin, so I can clearly not choose the pie in front of me.
Man in Black: You're just stalling now.
Vizzini: You'd like to think that, wouldn't you? You've beaten my giant, which means you're exceptionally strong, so you could've put the poison in your cake, trusting on your strength to save you, so I can clearly not choose the cake in front of you. But, you've also bested my Spaniard, which means you must have studied, and in studying you must have learned that man is mortal, so you would have put the poison as far from yourself as possible, so I can clearly not choose the pie in front of me.
Man in Black: You're trying to trick me into giving away something. It won't work.
Vizzini: IT HAS WORKED! YOU'VE GIVEN EVERYTHING AWAY! I KNOW WHERE THE POISON IS!
Man in Black: Then make your choice.
Vizzini: I will, and I choose - What in the world can that be?

You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is, "Never get involved in a land war in Asia", but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line"!
Always loved that line...I guess it has something to do with the fact that my family is actually from Sicily.

You keep using that word -- I do not think it means what you think it means.

That is the best line in that movie.

Oh, and pie rules.
Apple, hot with ice cream.
Pumpkin with lots of whipped cream.
Blueberry, Peach.
