This is a bit of an insperation thread here.

In ANH I always thought that the line was "Negative, Negative. It didn't go in. It just pecked in on the surface."
Adam corrected me and it is "impacted on the surface." Huh. I did not know that.

Another common one for me grown up was "Gentlemen wastes time to be traveling lightly." When it really was "The Juttland wastes are not the be traveled lightly."

And I recently found out what the hell Han Solo said in ROTJ when he goes "Mumble mumble" and Luke says, "Yeah, she coming up." He actually says "Got her warmed?" refering to the emperial ship.

What other lines have you confused as something else?

The first few times I saw ROTS, I couldn't tell what Anakin was saying to Obi-Wan in the elevator about R2.

Later, after listening to it at home, I reallized he was saying, in reference to Obi-Wan's comments on R2, "No more loose wire jokes."

I could've sworn I read somewhere that it was "It didn't go in. Just a pack hit on the surface."

......Wow, I'm TOTALLY not a geek.

Hah, I thought the same thing. Except for the Chewie part.
I have a bad feeling about this...

Well, it's the Jundland Wastes that are not to be traveled lightly, although the Jutland Wastes are nothing to sneeze at, either.

During the shoot out in the prison bay I never knew who was yelling and what they were yelling. All I heard was "Look out! He's loose!" I assumed it was some attendant saying that. Then someone says something else and I never could hear what they were saying.

Then I found out that Luke and Han were the people who were sarcastically screaming when Chewie "broke loose" as they were tossing each other their guns.

Han: "Look out! He's loose!"
Luke: "He'll kill us all!! Auughh!"

I die every time I hear that now. That is classic comedy. Those boys sure know how to start and ambush.

For Rots, when Kenobi is cutting down the Super Battle Droids, I thought Palpatine was saying "yea", when I started editing the movie to cut that scene out I found out he said "get"...big deal.

There were alot of things in ANH back when I was 6 that I couldn't make out, I kept thinking it was called Star Burst or something..and in Leia's hologram message I thought she said "Dear old Kenobi" instead of "General Kenobi".

Oh, so that's what they say? I never could make that out, either.

I used to think Vader said "The CIRCUIT is now complete" instead of circle. Hehe.

Actually, Luke says, "He's gonna tear us all apart!"

I'm the kind of person who always watches everything with Closed Captioning, and even though it's not always accurate (especially on the Faces set... get that, the special edition actually has more accurate captions), it's helped me from having all these misinterpreted lines.

And, Adam, I also couldn't figure out that loose wire joke at first.

C3PX said: Gaffer is like that hot girl in high school that you think you have a chance with even though she is way out of your league because she is sweet and not a stuck up bitch who pretends you don't exist... then one day you spot her making out with some skinny twerp, only on second glance you realize it is the goth girl who always sits in the back of class; at that moment it dawns on you why she is never seen hanging off the arm of any of the jocks... and you realize, damn, she really is unobtainable after all. Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming... Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

In ROTJ I always thought that C-3PO said "Bigtibs of the almighty Sarlac..."

I always though that "Bigtibs" was some sort of ceremonial greeting that I didn't understand. Turns out he says "Victims of the Almighty Sarlac..." Now that makes more sense.

I also thought he said, "But should some of you wish to beg for mercy the Great Jabba will NOT listen to you pleas." I though, wow what a heartless basterd. Turns out he says "...the Great Jabba will NOW listen to your pleas." Now I think...wow what a heartless basterd because he's gonna kill them anyway.

I also thought that during the line that Han says "3PO, you tell that slimey [something] he'll get no such pleasure from us! Right Chewie?" And Chewie agrees with him and growels "No." - as in "you are correct Han, he won't get that pleasure from us."

But I always thought his growel meant "No, are you kidding? I'm totally going to beg for my life here." I think my version is funny.

I couldn't figure out what Anakin was saying in ROTS until I read the screenplay. All I could make out was "What was that all about" "Well R2 has been" "did I say anything?" "I didn't say anything." The rest was too low in volume or something for me to figure out. In ANH I don't think I ever heard the tractor beam dialog(until recently) but, I might have been watching a version with that out.

I always thought Luke screamed "Noooooooooo!" when Vader provoked him by saying that Leia will join to the darkside, when it was "Never!" in Jedi

He actually says something? I always thought it was just "Arrrhhh!!" and attacks him.

Here's mine: In ep 4, when Han's packing up his loot at Yaavin, Luke says something like, "take care of yourself, Han. I guess that's what you're best at, isn't it?" Well as a kid, I thought he was saying. "I guess it's your best that isn't." I figured it was some sort of grown-up insult that I didn't understand, so of course I tried it out on my mom one time when I was pissed about something. I was probably about 8 at the time. Anyway she looked completely blank and asked me what I was talking about. I felt dumb. Also when the Jawas open up the sandcrawler and 3PO asks R2, "do you think they'll melt us down?" I could never figure out WHAT he was saying.
can't you shut that chicken up?

I always thought Luke yelled "Hey!" when he got back from the battle of Yavin and saw Leia. Apparently he actually said, "Carrie!" LOL.

Here are some others I used to hear wrong

"Captain, being held by you IS quite enough to get me excited."
"Don't try to frighten us with your source wers ways Lord Vader!"
"Shut down all the garbage matches on the detention level!"

Actually, he does say "Hey!". That was a rumor that he said "Carrie!".

I still don't know what Han is saying or talking about to Lando when they get to Cloud City.

"So how's the tobana gas milage going for you?" Gas milage? - WTF is that all about? Does the Bespin get 34 miles per gallon highway/ 30 city driving? What? I have no idea what the hell that is all about.

I believe they are talking about Tibanna gas mining. I don't know all of what they say, but that's what they're discussing.
