The Princess Bride (1987)
The Grandson: A book?
Grandpa: That's right. When I was your age, television was called books. And this is a special book. It was the book my father used to read to me when I was sick, and I used to read it to your father. And today I'm gonna read it to you.
The Grandson: Has it got any sports in it?
Grandpa: Are you kidding? Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles...
The Grandson: Doesn't sound too bad. I'll try to stay awake.

The Grandson: Is this a kissing book?
Grandpa: Wait, just wait.

The Grandson: No, I'm okay. I'm okay. Sit down. I'm all right.
