Man Asked to Remove T-Shirt Because of Quote From Popular 'Princess Bride' Movie

"The whole experience was a bit over the top..."

If you were asked to complete this quote  -- "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father." -- how would it end? And can you name the movie it comes from?

Chances are, if you're of a certain age, you would know the finishing line is "Prepare to die." and it's from the 1987 film "The Princess Bride."

Here is a clip of Inigo Montoya's famous line:

That line is one of the movie's most well-known, but passengers on a recent Qantas flight were "quite intimidated" by the quote printed on an Australian man's T-shirt. So much so, he was asked by a flight attendant to remove it.

According to the New Zealand publication Stuff,  Wynand Mullins, in hindsight, admits the T-shirt might not have been the best choice for air travel, but he thinks the airline's response was a bit overboard.

"The flight attendant said to me: ‘Are you able to remove it because some of the passengers are quite intimidated by it,'" Mullins recalled to Stuff. "I thought it was all a bit silly. The person next to me was laughing, because they knew the movie."

Mullins said the flight attendant went to look for another T-shirt for him, but one wasn't found.

"I wouldn't be surprised if they had someone watching me the whole time," Mullins continued."The whole experience was a bit over the top, but also a bit comical."

Stuff went on to report a Qantas spokesperson saying the airline does have dress code standards restricting clothing slogans that are "offensive or threatening."
