A lot of them add a character's name as reference to the movie although not said that way in the movie. Some shorten more than one sentence into a phrase. Minor differences usually, but it makes the quotes more memorable and relatable in popular use.

I think some of these are very close to the original quotes, but over time people quoting the movie have changed the words slightly to make them fit better in a greater variety of situations, so eventually we remember not the exact words, but rather the essence of the quotes streamlined to make them even "more quotable."

I think the misquote there is that some people actually think the men on the Apollo 13 mission said that.

Although Tom Hanks said, "Houston, we have a problem.", Jim Lovell said, "Houston, we've had a problem."

Which would be fine, if this were a "Historical Moments Misquotes" quiz. :) As a movie quote, it's correct.

It's a different sort of misquotation: it's the movie misquoting a historical figure rather than people misquoting the movie. I think it's reasonable to describe both as 'movie misquotes'.

It's in the movie just like that, but it's a misquote of the actual radio transmission between the real Apollo 13 and Houston.

The Dragnet quote would depend on if you're talking about the Jack Webb/Harry Morgan TV show, or the Dan Aykroyd/Tom Hanks movie. Yes it is true that Webb/Morgan repeatedly used the phrase, "All we want are the facts, ma'am." Aykroyd (mostly) repeatedly used the misquote, "just the facts, ma'am."

I believe the quote from the movie Apollo 13 is "Houston, we have a problem", but the actual statement during the Apollo 13 mission was, "Okay, Houston, we've had a problem here."

Technically (and boy oh boy do I mean technically...) Tom Hanks "Uhhh, Houston we have a problem" -- so if you are very very fickle; It is technically misquoted, because barely anyone says, "uhhh"

Agree with a lot of these comments. "Play it again Sam" is your classic misquote, given that "again" was never used, whereas the Wall St one does not contain any incorrect information- if you were referencing the quote in an essay for example you could write "Greed...is good". And just to add a few more of the "real" quotes: "That's not a knife... THAT's a knife", "YOU'RE going to need a bigger boat right?". Finally, "Hello Clarice" is pretty lame as a quote or a misquote. "Have the lambs stopped screaming Clarice?" would be better.

I disagree with your assessment of "Hello Clarice." Out of all of them, THAT was the one that actually surprised me the most. For example, if I met someone named Clarice, the first thing that would come to my head would be to introduce myself by saying "Hello Clarice" because that is always what I thought Lecter said. That being said, Clarice may never talk to me again, and a restraining order may be issued, but that's another topic for another day.

So I know my comment is years after yours, but I think the words in the ellipsis change the meaning. "for lack of a better word" shows Gekko understands the emotional charge behind the word greed and goes on to say that people forget the value that is created by people acting in their self-interest.

Don't agree with "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?". That is not a quote 'from the movie' but predates it. It's a verse translation of the Brothers Grimm's "Speigel, Spiegel an der Wand, wer ist die schönste in dem Land?" Perhaps Disney deliberately misquoted the Grimms, but people using this phrase are quoting the books, not the film.

^ Sounds better in German (rolls off the tongue better) than the correct phrase translated into English: "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest (prettiest) in the land?"

Just a couple true quotes I remember: Casablanca- Play it for me Sam, Play "As Time Goes By" Field of Dreams- If you build it, HE will come The Wizard of Oz- Toto, We're not in Kansas anymore (not 100% sure its right but still) Jaws- YOURE gonna need a bigger boat Wall Street- Greed, for lack of a better word, is good Dirty Harry- You feelin' Lucky punk? (also not 1005 sure) But it was a GREAT quiz, I barely even realized so many!

1. No one misquotes The Wizard of Oz. 2. Snow White is not a misquote, it's from the original fairy tale. 3. No one misquotes the Graduate. I've never seen the film and I know the correct quote.

Are these intended to be statements of fact or threats? You better not misquote the Graduate, or Zalias is gonna get you.
