"What kind of idiot would put poison in both cups?"

I just woke up from a very strange dream. I was watching the "Duel of Wits" scene from "The Princess Bride," but in this version, Jennifer Aniston (as her "Rachel" character from "Friends") was kibitzing over Westley's shoulder during Vizzini's dazzling display of deductive reasoning.

I think I watch too much TV...
