10 Famous Movie Quotes You Might Be Getting Wrong

Memory is a fickle, faulty thing. The things we swear happened might've actually gone down completely differently, sometimes. It should be no surprise, then, that sometimes we might remember famous lines from movies a tad differently from what they actually are.

Check out this list of 10 movie quotes that people tend to misquote by Alltime10s, from classics like Tarzan to The Lord of The Rings. Some, admittedly, are pretty close to the source material. Others, like the Star Wars one, are quoted wrong often enough that hearing the actual line is a tad shocking.

10 Famous Movie Misquotes[Alltime10s]


    Gonna be that guy and wager the idea that people aren't necessarily misquoting the aforementioned movies, however they're quoting later works which used a simplified reference to said movies. Maybe I'm wrong though....

    Funnily enough, they themselves have got a misquote in there. When saying goodbye to Gillian towards the end of the film, Captain Kirk (actually Admiral Kirk at this point but now I'm just being pedantic) says "Scotty, beam me up." not "Scotty, beam us up."

    Yeah but the misquotes actually sound better lol.

    To be fair, the point is that some of these are misquoted in an effort to make the reference recognisable. If I turned around and said, "No, I am your father." it's not nearly as recognisable as changing it to Luke.

    It's also used as a way of shortening fairly long quotes to their essence. Who really wants to say "...greed, for the lack of a better word, is good." when he obviously means three simple words?

    Why would Gandalf say "Fly"? Out of the entire fellowship, the only one remotely capable of flying would be himself.

      Which he proves immediately after he says it, by falling in to a deep tunnel and landing on a mountain.

      One of the meanings of the word "fly" is "escape hastily".

      I hope you aren't being serious. He's telling them to run with haste.

    Is it just me or was that a hugely boring video? I mean if you're going to tell us the correct quotes with text just write a list.

    Anchorman - Ron Burgundy:
    Misquote - "I'm not even mad. I'm impressed"
    Quote - "You pooped in the refrigerator? And you ate the whole wheel of cheese? How'd you do that? Heck, I'm not even mad; that's amazing."
