DON’T QUOTE ME……

Just like in the game telephone, the more people repeat something the more it gets changed, just a little each time.  I was surprised to find out that some of those famous lines in our favorite movies are not exactly as we remember them.  I know that most of these quotes are really minor, but I thought it was fun to remember some of the great quotes and also see how they have been changed to the quotes we use.
