The Most Commonly Misquoted Film Quotes

Film quotes are a huge part of everyday conversations, but there a lot of famous movie quotes that aren't actual quotes at all. "Play it again Sam," "Do you feel lucky, punk?," "I want to suck your blood"... All of these are really great lines, and most people could easily identify the films in which they supposedly originated. The truth is, none of these lines are in any movies; they are misstatements or outright incorrect variations on the actual quotes. Here is a list of the most popular misquoted quotes, along with the REAL quotes that appear in some of the most famous and iconic films of all time.

What are the most commonly misquoted movie quotes? This list should provide that answer.

  1. 1
    There are so many famous lines from Casablanca, but there is one quote that has become part of pop culture "Play it again Sam". You hear it in movies, in passing conversations, in songs, all over...only one problem they never said it in the movie. They do say something similar, when Ingrid Bergman's character Ilsa comes to Rick's bar she recognizes the piano player Sam. She calls him over and says "Play it once Sam, for old times sake." Then she says "Play it Sam, play As Time Goes By." The line is often credited to Bogart but he never says anything close to it, the only line regarding the song would be when he yells, "You played it for her, you can play it for me…If she can stand it, I can. Play it!" But never once does anyone utter the famous "Play it again Sam" line.

  2. 2
    "Luke, I am your father" commonly believed to have been said by Darth Vader, this quote did not actually occur at all. The actual quote was "No, I am your father" and it was not even delivered on camera – it was dubbed in later; what was originally said on camera was "Obi-Wan killed your father".

  3. 3
    "Beam Me Up Scotty!" Nope, never happened Kirk didn't say it the closest he ever came was "Scotty, beam me up".

  4. 4
    "Mirror, mirror on the wall...who is the fairest of them all?" Classic Snow White quote; it's just not the quote that's said in the story. That's getting ready to change, as there's an influx of Snow White remakes coming out in 2012, all of which plan to capitalize on the original's most iconic (if absent) line. One is even called "Mirror Mirror!" Judging from trailers, the evil queen in both films will say "mirror, mirror on the wall," even though originally the line was "Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?"

  5. 5
    "I don't think we're in Kansas anymore, Toto." or "Toto, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore" or even the very stripped down version of "We're not in Kansas anymore" all of them are wrong. The actual line said by Dorthy is "Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore."
