And they missed "Play it again, Sam"

I was going to add, "frankly my dear, I don't give a damn", but that was actually a misquote from the book to the screen.

Play it once, Sam.
Play it, Sam. Play 'As Time Goes By.'

You know how to give a blow job, don't you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow.

No Princess Bride? How can you have a movie misquote article without any Princess Bride?

Or do people always get the lines right?

'If you build it, they will come'

I don't know anybody who says that.  I've only ever heard 'he' because it's talking about Shoeless Joe.

Slaves2Darkness: EvilEgg: Play it again, Sam.

I was going to say that.

The line is "Play it Sam." "You played it for her you can play it for me."



Rick Does not say "Play it Sam:"


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!

It's not really misquoted as it is grammatically awkward if quoted verbatim afterward as a 3rd person. In the movies those are typically exchanges among two or more individuals however when someone quotes the lines afterward it's usually done in 1st person narrative so it would be funny to say 'No, I am your father' or 'Do I feel lucky punk, yeah do you?'

People within earshot would think you're conversing with yourself because you are!

The Zipper pulled up?
No, he spiraled in....and he crashed.
And he crashed?
No! Andy made it back home, but he just wasn't the same.
But he wasn't the same?

Clash City Farker: It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs.


I haven't read the books and so don't know what the Kessel Run actually is (don't think they explained it in the movies?), but "parsecs" always bothered me.  I guessed it might be an asteroid field and he made the run the straightest of anyone...

Technically it is misquoted. But people harping on it is stupid. Same with, for example, "I love the smell of napalm in the morning. Smells like victory." The long speil is cut for brevity, but "Smelled like victory" doesn't make sense in the shortened quote as the tense is off.

All this time, I thought it was referencing his father.

togaman2k: The more interesting article is the one right below it...

"Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis sentenced to 270 days in jail" - I feel it may be more intellectually stimulating than to read the same "mistaken quote" article over again.



Yeah, that was entertaining, and not just for schadenfreude reasons:
After he was convicted, Francis lashed out at the jury in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, shouting, "I want that jury to know that each and every one of you are mentally f---ing retarded and you should be euthanized because, as Darwin said, you have naturally selected yourself."

He later apologized for his tirade. "I deeply regret the remarks attributed to me in the interview with The Hollywood Reporter," he said.

That is the standard excuse, that he had to go through difficult space and used the shortest (and most dangerous) route. But I will put money on someone screwed up and assumed "parsec" was a unit of time.

Empire, yes, Dirty Harry, no.  Because you could just add one line to make it make sense without much trouble: "You gotta ask yourself, 'do I feel lucky?'  Well, do ya, punk?

Real answer: Either Lucas didn't have a damn clue what a parsec was, or he was quite cleverly making Han seem like a lying scoundrel by making up a bold claim using the wrong word.

Stupid retcon answer from later books: The Kessel run goes around a cluster of black holes called the Maw, and Han cut it the closest (and shortest) of anyone.

fruitloop: Luke, I am your father.

Why is this a misquote?  It's not a quote from The Empire Strikes Back, it's a quote from Tommy Boy.


Or Strange Brew...

Luke...I am your father. Come to the dark side, you hoser.
