There are classic movie lines that are a part of our collective cultural consciousness. Somewhere along the way, they have become distorted from the actual quote.

Here are a few of the most misquoted movie lines, according to NBC News, and the actual lines from the movies:

Real Line: “No. I am your father.”

The Wizard of Oz
