When you watch a movie, you’re probably so enthralled by the actions of the characters that you might not pay close attention to all of the words that are said. However, there are some famous movie quotes that viewers think that they know word for word but that are actually quite different.
“The Silence of the Lambs”
When Hannibal Lecter meets Clarice, everyone thinks that he tells her hello. Instead, he tells her good evening. This isn’t a big deal for some, but it tends to set the scene for how the relationship between the two develops over time.
“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”
This is a movie that has captivated the hearts of viewers young and old for many years. The words that viewers think they hear are “Mirror, Mirror , on the wall.” However, the quote from the movie is “Magic mirror on the wall” when the Queen wants to know if she’s still the fairest in the land.
In this movie about a large shark that has a deadly appetite, viewers might hear someone make a statement about the group needing a bigger boat. The actual quote is “You’re going to need a bigger boat.”
This is a movie about the life of a man who started out a bit slow before running to his happily ever after. The statement about mama and life being like a box of chocolates is often not heard correctly. The quote from the movie is “My mama always said life was like a box of chocolates.”
“Wizard of Oz”
If you’ve watched this movie, then you know that there are quite a few surprises and changes throughout its entirety. Some people hear the phrase “I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore, Toto.” However, Dorothy actually says “Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore” when she realizes they are no longer on the farm.
Sometimes, people think that they hear a statement made in a movie that was never even made in the first place. Viewers tend to associate “I want to suck your blood!” with this movie, but the line was never included in the movie at all.
If you pay attention to this movie, then you might think that you hear “Luke, I am your father.” He really says “No, I am your father.”
Some people think that the quote is “Nobody puts Baby in the corner” when it’s really “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” This isn’t a huge difference in the words that are used, but it does show that words aren’t always what people think they hear.
It’s evident that there’s a problem, but the quote that is often associated with the movie is “Houston, we have a problem.” The statement actually made is “Ah, Houston, we’ve had a problem.”

Although the monster seems like a man and the quote in the movie should be “He’s Alive!”, the quote is really “It’s Alive!”
“Cool Hand Luke”
The line often heard wrong is “What we have here is a failure to communicate.” The line that is said in the movie is “What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate.”
“Field of Dreams”
This quote is like a dream to viewers in that they think they hear “If you build it, they will come.” In reality, the quote is “If you build it, he will come.”
As the large gorilla stands on top of the Empire State Building, you think that the quote is “T’was beauty that killed the beast.”. The line said is really “It was Beauty killed the Beast.”
