Ted Cruz loves to quote lines from his favorite movie “The Princess Bride” during campaign events, but the actor who played his oft-quoted Inigo Montoya, Mandy Patinkin, says that Cruz is using his character’s speech all wrong.

From Huffington Post:

“Senator Cruz,” Patinkin said, “if you’re going to say those lines, you’ve got to say the other line, too.” That “other line” occurs after Montoya has fulfilled his self-imposed destiny to exact revenge on the six-fingered man who killed his father. “I have been in the revenge business so long,” Montyoa said, “now that it’s over, I don’t know what to do with the rest of my life.”

Patinkin urged Cruz and other divisive candidates to open their arms and hearts to refugees.
