Some of the Most Misquoted Movie Lines: Star Wars, Jaws, more
- 1.) “Luke, I am your father“
- 2.) “We’re gonna need a bigger boat“
- 3.) “Hello Clarice“
- 4.) “I want to suck your blood“
- 5.) “Mirror Mirror“
- 6.) “Greed is good“
- 7.) “If you build it, they will come“
One of the biggest plot twists ever, & easily one of the most often quoted movies. In the Empire Strikes Back during the rather drawn out dialog between Luke Skywalker & Darth Vader, it is revealed that Vader is actually Lukes’ Father. But we all remember it just slightly different than it was.
In Steven Spielberg’s classic “Jaws“, when Roy Scheider sees the great white shark for the first time he proclaims this, all-to-often, misquoted line.
We were all mesmerized by Anthony Hopkins classic thriller Silence of the Lambs, & perhaps too mesmerized because we have all been quoting a line that was never delivered.
Thorough all cinema history, in all of the Dracula films, this iconic line is never quoted by Dracula himself! Crazy right?!
As the stereotypical evil queen approches the mirror in the Disney Classic, Snow White, she never addresses with this common misquoted & incredibly sinister opening.
During his iconic speech is Wall Street, Michael Douglas offered an often forgotten pause & filler between Greed is good.
Since 1989, we have been reassuring ourselves, that if you build it, they will come. Truth is, in Field of Dreams Kevin Kosner was promised that “he” will come, rather than “they”.
