Song Trivia The quote: "My name is Inigo Montoya; you killed my father; prepare to die!" was stated in a recent poll to be one of the most recognized quotes from a movie. In 1997 I attended a Mandy Patinkin concert. He finished his (spectacular) main performance and of course the audience stood and demanded an encore. The stage was dark for several minutes. Then a single spotlight came on, Mandy walked out to the microphone and repeated that famous line. The audience went crazy and it was another several minutes before he could begin his actual encore song. -Thanks to Elizabeth
