Just when you thought you knew everything, comes a surprise. Did Darth Vader actually say, ‘Luke I am your father?’ Before we answer this question, let’s take a look at something interesting.
It’s not uncommon to see people remembering things inaccurately. It could be from a movie scene or even dialogue from a popular play. Unfortunately, it is this very version that stays in our heads for years. And we accept it as the truth, despite it being far from reality.
Below, we’re unraveling some intriguingly distorting memories of the past. They have each received their fair share of attention. And the best bit being, they involve the sharing of false memories.
Star Wars- the real iconic ‘Luke I am your father’ scene
Do you think you have a great Star Wars memory? If yes, you might want to think again. Our mind has the wonderful capability of playing tricks where people share false memories. It’s almost as if we intentionally fail to accept reality.
Darth Vader informing Luke Skywalker about his parentage is one of the movie’s most iconic moments. If yes, why do we all remember this quote wrong?
Let’s put it straight once and for all. It’s not, ‘Luke I am your father.’ The dialogue is actually, ‘No, I am your father.’
It’s been so many years, yet we continue to move forward with the misinterpreted dialogue. How interesting though?
Kit Kat- The mystery behind the dash inclusion
Everyone’s favorite wafer chocolate is loved for so many reasons.
And its name is definitely one of them.But did you know the crunchy sweet treat doesn’t include a dash? It’s actually Nestle Kit Kit, not Kit-Kat. We’re definitely going to be looking at the packaging in detail from now.
Toy Story- infamous catchphrase remembered wrong
The Toy Story characters are loved for many reasons. Their iconic expressions and memorable dialogues continue to steal old and young hearts. In particular, one of Woody’s catchphrases has people talking.
We’re referring to, ‘There’s a snake in my boot.’ But what if we told you that you’ve been saying it wrong all these years? Yes it’s actually, ‘There’s a snake in my boots.’
People were even more shocked at this news than the ‘Luke I am your father,’ dialogue correction.
Forrest Grump- understanding the little differences of ‘is’ and ‘was’ in life
The classic movie Forrest Grump has its fair share of distorting memories.
One that has caught attention is Tom Hank’s dialogue referencing to ‘Life is like a box of chocolates.’ However, you’ve been saying it wrong all along. It’s actually ‘Life was like a box of chocolates.
’ It might seem tiny but boy, what a huge difference in context.
Snowwhite- how you’ve been referencing ‘mirror mirror on the wall’ wrong for years
Snowwhite is a fairytale that continues to be admired for its storyline and characters around the world. In particular, fans can’t get enough of the queen’s dialogue ‘mirror mirror on the wall.’
Despite contrary belief, we’ve been saying it wrong for generations. It’s actually, ‘magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all.’
Blue Ribbon- disbelief and outrage over the actual pronunciation
Candy plays an important role in childhood memories. In particular, Blue Ribbon goodies. With that being said, outrage sparked among so many this year when their childhood dreams shattered.
This is when it was revealed that ‘Blue Ribbon’ is actually pronounced and spelled as ‘Blue Riband.’ We wonder now, who is to blame for ruining our childhood?
It’s amazing how the tiniest details make so much difference. Above all, it’s shocking to see how people’s poor memories turn things into reality. But here, we’re referring to a reality that’s far from the truth.
