Thing a Day 22

Fezzik and Inigo take Westley to Miracle Max.

TAD22a

Inigo: Are you the Miracle Max who worked for the king all those years?

Max: The king’s stinking son fired me. And thank you so much for bringing up such a painful subject. While you’re at it, why don’t you give me a nice paper cut and pour lemon juice on it? We’re closed! Beat it or I’ll call the brute squad!

Fezzik: I’m on the brute squad.

Max: You are the brute squad.

Inigo: We need a miracle. It’s very important.

Max: Look, I’m retired. And besides, why would you want someone the king’s stinking son fired? I might kill whoever you wanted me to miracle.

Inigo: He’s already dead.

Max: He is, huh? I’ll take a look. Bring him in.

TAD22b

Max: I’ve seen worse.

He tells Fezzik and Inigo that their friend is only mostly dead, not all dead. He and his wife Valerie make a miracle pill.

TAD22c

Valerie: The chocolate coating makes it go down easier, but you have to wait fifteen minutes for full potency, and he shouldn’t go in swimming for at least an hour.

TAD22d

Valerie: Bye bye, boys!

Max: Have fun storming the castle!

Valerie: Think it’ll work?

Max: It would take a miracle.
