This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   As Inigo waits on top of the cliff the story of his father and the six finger man is told. Inigo never discusses it with the man in black. Inigo recounts his story to the man in black after asking him about his fingers.
   When the man in black duels Vizzini it is night time and they are under the full moon. It is daytime.
   As the man in black approaches Vizzini and Buttercup, Vizzini pushes the knife into her neck and breaks the skin causing some blood to flow. He doesn't break the skin with the knife.
   When Buttercup tells the man in black that she loved more deeply than he ever could he slaps her in the face for lying. He pulls back his hand but doesn't hit her.
   Westley and Buttercup encounter "Snow Sand" in the Fire Swamp. Westley is prepared for it and has a coil of vine wrapped around his arm. When Buttercup falls in, he ties it around a rock and jumps in after her. After he gets her out she is unconcious for a short while before waking up. They call it "Lightning Sand". When Buttercup falls in, Westley grabs a nearby vine and cuts it with his sword. A ROUS watches and then leaves before they escape the sand. Buttercup is awake after they come out.
