"Famous" movie lines that never happened.

Okay...many know that 'Play it again Sam' is credited from Casablanca, but it is never actually said in the movie.

"Luke, I am your father!" has been quoted for over two decades but the actual line is "No, I am your father."

What other lines are commonly misquoted?

Well, it's not from a movie...but no one ever said "Beam Me Up Scotty" during the first three seasons of "Star Trek: The Original Series".

Major League's "Yellowstone" joke, although it is in ML2.

Casablanca

Rick: "Play it again, Sam"

What he really says:

Rick: "You know what I want to hear"
Sam: "No, I don't"
Rick: "You played it for her, you can play it for me"
Sam: "Well, I don't think I can remember... "
Rick: "If she can stand it, I can! Play it!"

Also Ilsa comes closest to saying the famous line:

Ilsa: "Play it once, Sam. For old times' sake"
Sam: "I don't know what you mean, Miss Elsa"
Ilsa: "Play it, Sam. Play 'As Time Goes By.' "

James Cagney's character from WHITE HEAT is often quoted as saying, "Top of the world, Ma!"

Whereas I think the actual line is: "Made it, Ma! Top of the world!"

Also, I don't think Cagney ever said "You dirty rat" in a movie, although he was often quoted as having done so.

The "badges" line from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre is often misquoted.

Should be: "Badges? We ain't got no badges! We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any steenkin' badges!".

Funny, I've never even heard of that movie, but I use "Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges." all the time. I thought it was from Blazing Saddles....

It's a misquote of one of West's lines from She Done Him Wrong, spoken to Cary Grant as Capt. Cummings (wink, wink).

http://www.saidwhat.co.uk/misquotes.php

Actual line: "Why don't you come up some time and see me? "

The linked site has a few other misquotes.

I'm pretty sure Cary Grant never said, "Judy! Judy! Judy!" in any movie. Some impressionist used to do an impression of Grant and chose that phrase because it emphasized his accent and unique delivery.

But the original line was from Treasure of the Sierra Madre. The line was copied and changed slightly in Blazing Saddles. The line was also parodied in UHF, as someone mentioned already.

On The Andy Grifith Show, Goober I believe does Grant to "Anj" in front of Gomer.

Gomer: "do it Goober...do Cary Grant..."
Goober: "judyjudyjudy!" no accent, no pause in between.

Understood. I just wanted to make sure that for all these years I haven't been quoting a movie I've never seen.

Ahh...but if you quote the misquote, which was an homage to the original quote, are you correctly quoting the misquote...or misquoting the original quote?

Here's a reverse, I always thought the line that people use to imitate Katherine Hepburn, "The Calla Lillies are in bloom again", never existed in a film, but I was wrong, it is from Stage Door

The correct line from the original King Kong is "T'was her shaved twat that killed the beast."

bralph..that was the response I was looking for!

Another from my daily movie calendar: Charles Boyer never actually says "Come with me to the Casbah" to Hedy Lemarr in the film Algiers.

I had no idea the AFI was going to do a Famous Quotes show. Looks like they are using the correct quotes as opposed to the "popular" version. (Play it Sam..play as Time Goes Goes By") I wonder if that will affect their rank.

The last line by Rhett in Gone With the Wind is often misquoted. I think it is "Frankly, my Dear, I don't give a damn!" but it has been a long time since I watched it so I may not have that right. It is sometimes quoted as "Frankly, Scarlet, I don't give a damn!" and various iterations like that.

My understanding is that the use of "damn" in a movie was fairly scandalous for the time. Seems pretty quaint today.
