Nothing sticks with you after a film quite like a good quote; something to sum up the films overall themes or characters in a cut-out-and-keep line. Its something to keep the film close to your thoughts long after watching it. Sometimes, decades after release when a film could have slipped into obscurity, one memorable quote stands strong and keeps it remembered, but often the collective consciousness will alter a line to increase its memorability. Here are a few of those alterations.
The Wizard of Oz (1939)
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
The Merchant of Venice (Play by Shakespeare)
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
Star Trek (1966-1969)
Ghost Busters (1984)
Oliver Twist (1948)
Game of Thrones (2011- present)
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
Dammit Jim, I am guilty of trashing all these quotes.

DuckBoy: Actually if your quoting the original movie it came from, then yes it's a misquote. But since Blazing Saddles is a much more famous, and popular, movie, the quote from there is correct.
It`s a correct quote from a movie that misquoted another movie.
