7 Classic Movie Lines You Never Got Right

We’re giving away Killers tickets on the show today playing a movie quote game. It makes me think of all the times we think we have it nailed, maybe even start to speak the line back to the TV as we’re watching a movie, only to realize we never knew the exact line. Here are my favorite classic movie misquotes.

Casablanca (1942)

Humphrey Bogart in Casablance

What People Say: “Play it again, Sam.”

What The Film Really Said: “You played it for her, you can play it for me. If she can stand it, I can. Play it!”

 Field Of Dreams (1989)

What People Say: “If you build it, they will come.”

What The Film Really Said: “If you build it he will come.”

(Which makes perfect sense when you think of the payoff of the whole movie, when Kevin Costner’s character has a catch with his long dead father)

 Jaws (1978)

What People Say: “We’re gonna need a bigger boat!”

What The Film Really Said: “You’re gonna need a bigger boat!”

All About Eve (1950)

What People Say: “Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.”

What The Film Really Said: “Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.”

…And Justice For All (1979)

Al Pacino in ...and Justice For All

What People Say: “I’m out of order? You’re out of order! This whole courtroom’s out of order!”

What The Film Really Said: ” You’re out of order! You’re out of order! The whole trial is out of order! They’re out of order!”

Star Trek: The Voyage Home (1987)

What People Say: “Beam me up, Scotty!”

What The Film Really Said: “Scotty, beam us up.” The misquoted version was never actually said in the show.

Wall Street (1987)

What People Say: “Greed is good!”

What The Film Really Said: “The point is, ladies and gentlemen, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind. And greed, you mark my words, will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA.”
