Film Mis-Quotes...
it's actually quite fascinating how many famous movie quotes most people get wrong.

here are a few interesting ones i've found:

~~The legendary blood-sucking Count Dracula (Hungarian-born actor Bela Lugosi) never said "I want to suck your blood" in the Universal horror classic, Dracula (1931). However, the line was used in a humorous context by Dr. Tom Mason (Ned Bellamy) practicing his Bela Lugosi (Martin Landau) impersonation in director Tim Burton's Ed Wood (1994).

~~Often misquoted is Dr. Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive) - yes, Frankenstein was the name of the mad scientist - and his shout of "It's alive" with the stirring of life within his non-human Monster (Boris Karloff), in Frankenstein (1931). Frankenstein is often quoted as saying instead: "He's alive! Alive!" Mel Brooks' irreverent spoof Young Frankenstein (1974) featured grandson Frederick Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) resuming his late grandfather's experiments, and his loud exclamation of: "Alive. It's alive! IT'S ALIVE!"

~~"Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?" - was not spoken by Mae West in She Done Him Wrong (1933). Also, "Why don't you come up sometime 'n see me?," is often misquoted as "Why, don't you come up and see me sometime?"

~~"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?" - is actually an incorrect quote. In Disney's animated film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), the wicked Queen asks: "Magic Mirror on the Wall, who is the Fairest one of all?"

~~"Play it again, Sam" - was a line never spoken by Ingrid Bergman or Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca (1942) to Sam (Dooley Wilson), the nightclub pianist and reluctant performer of the sentimental song 'As Time Goes By'

~~Obi Wan Kenobi (Sir Alec Guinness) NEVER said verbatim, "May the force be with you," but he did say at least two other variants: "The Force will be with you...always" and "Remember, the Force will be with you...always" in Star Wars (1977).

~~Contrary to popular belief, Captain Kirk (William Shatner) never uttered the line: “Beam me up, Scotty”. The actual command, "Kirk to Enterprise. Beam us up, Scotty" was voiced by Captain Kirk (voice of William Shatner) in Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek animated TV series from 1973-75. The closest Kirk ever got to saying the exact line was "Scotty, beam me up!" in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986).
