These Are the Movie Quotes Everyone Gets Wrong

You might be surprised by how many popular movie quotes you're remembering just a bit wrong.

'The Wizard of Oz'
Though most people say 'Looks like we're not in Kansas anymore,' or 'Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore,' those quotes aren't quite right.

Dorothy actually says 'Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.'

'The Silence of the Lambs'
If you've always thought Hannibal Lecter greets Clarice by saying 'Hello, Clarice,' we've got news for you. It's actually 'Good evening, Clarice.' How polite!

'Field of Dreams'
That whispering voice? It's not quietly murmuring 'If you build it, they will come.' The correct quote is 'If you build it, he will come.'

'Wall Street'
Though Gordon Gekko definitely thinks greed is good, his quote is actually 'Greed, for lack of a better word, is good.'

'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'
The Queen says 'Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?' Most people think it's 'Mirror, mirror on the wall' ... and most people are incorrect.

'The Empire Strikes Back'
This might blow your mind, but when Vader reveals his true identity to Luke, he does not say 'Luke, I am your father.' He actually says 'No, I am your father.'

How many of these quotes have you been saying wrong? Don't worry, we won't judge.

Dirty Harry never says 'Do you feel lucky Puck?'.
I believe w/o looking it up, he says, 'There is just one question you have to ask yourself, 'Do I feel lucky?'. Well do you, Punk?'.

I got, "The Wizard of Oz," and, "The Empire Strikes Back" correct. I didn't get "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," correct. I read the answers concerning , "Field of Dreams," before answering and am not sure what my answer would've been. I'm not familiar with the other two.

P.S. You can't quote someone incorrectly. If you don't say what they said, word for word, you're not quoting them incorrectly, you're just not quoting them. You're only quoting them if you do say what they said word for word.

I always thought Dorothy said "I HAVE a feeling........", not "I've a feeling........".

For "Field of Dreams" it was at first, "If you build it, he will come" as the article states, but once Kevin Costner started building it, it became "If you build it, they will come". They are both in the movie.

as previously mentioned: never does the voice say "they" see script at http://www.imsdb.com/scripts/Field-of-Dreams.html
Its referring to his father, "build it and he will come" it also says go the distance and ease his pain...
Luv that movie as well

Actually, "Mirror, Mirror" comes from the story which Disney adapted into an animated movie, taking liberty with the original words.

Exactly. I can't believe they even included that one.

They included it because people misquote the line from the film, not the story. DUH.
