Movie Misquotes

The most famous movie quotes we hear them frequently aren’t the real quotes at all. Years of repetition have turned them into easily recognizable, but inaccurate, misquotes. This is my favorite Movie Misquotes.

“Play it again, Sam!”

Supposedly said by Ingrid Bergman, but you can scour the script of the film and never find it. Instead, you will find Ingrid saying “Play it Sam, for old times’ sake, play ‘As Time Goes By’.”

“I’m out of order? You’re out of order! This whole court is out of order!”

Al Pacino actually says “You’re out of order! You’re out of order! The whole trial is out of order! They’re out of order!”

“If you build it, they will come.”

The actual quote if “If you build it, he will come.” Even though a horde of dead baseball players show up to play on the field, only one player really matters to the main character: his father, with whom he plays a tearful round of catch with in the movie’s finale

“Do you feel lucky, punk?”

Clint Eastwood never said it. The real line comes at the end of Dirty Harry, when Cagney’s answer to whether or not he shot five or six bullets, which he ends with the query, “You’ve got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, PUNK?”

“Luke, I am your father.”

This is probably the most quoted line from one of the most famous trilogies of all time. The actual line following Luke’s accusation of Vader about killing his father is “No. I am your father.”
