Sidney Paget: Sherlock Holmes

You know how Darth Vader told Luke he was his father? Or Sherlock Holmes’ famous line? Or Doctor McCoy telling Kirk a man was dead before Kirk beamed back to the ship? How about Toto being told they weren’t in Kansas anymore, or how we learned there was only Zuul? Guess, what. The way we remember those and other famous TV quotes are wrong, as Buzzfeed‘s Donna Dixon brought up. Why do we screw these up? Probably somebody else messed up the line as a joke on a talk show or interview or comedy skit or something (how many people still think Dana Cary’s added lines while playing George Bush were actually things Bush said?), or possibly a line changed from a book like Oliver Twist in a popular adaptation that stuck with us, and we all accepted it since it sounded right, even though something was off. Some of these have become part of pop culture or famous sayings, and we’ve gotten it wrong for years.
