In this clip, Mandy talks about...

Hardly believing he was in 'The Princess Bride'
MP: I tell ya - a day doesn't go by where somebody does't talk to me about The Princess Bride. In some form - ask me to say something, whatever. And every time they ask me, including this moment - I can't believe it's me you're talking about! I can't believe that I'm the guy in the movie! And I'm in every single copy of every DVD that's out there! (laughs)

His father's influence on 'The Princess Bride'
GS: In that movie - because you lost your father young - in that movie you were avenging your father's death - there was some of that. When you were making it, was that in you at all?
MP: You bet your ... heart! (laughs)
GS: May I also bet my ass?
MP: I didn't know what time this show was on! I don't know what the rules are! (laughs)

His favourite line
MP: I hear the guy, who's played by me, say this line. And it, to me, it becomes the line of the film, and of my life ... and the line that I love the most in that movie is; "I have been in the revenge business so long, now that it is over, I don't know what to do with the rest of my life."
