First drafts of iconic movie lines… [the answers]

Earlier this week I posted a few iconic movie lines but not exactly how you remember them. I wrote down how they might have looked in the very first draft of the movie, before a thousand revisions. For this post to make sense, check that one out first here. Then come back to find out which movies the quotes are from. Answers are below!


Movie #1 – Jaws
“The vessel we’re on doesn’t seem to be the best size for what’s happening in the ocean around us at the moment. Now in my experience, we’d have a more favorable circumstance if we sought out a watercraft that wasn’t as small as this one.”

Actual quote: “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.”


Movie #2 – Lord of the Rings

“I’ll nevvverrrr let you go. You’re special and I adores you. My favorite jewelry for always.”

Actual quote: “My precious.”


Movie #3 – Titanic

“The people recently cast their votes and after they were all counted, it appears the majority of voters have made me ruler of all the nations!”

Actual quote: “I’m king of the world!”


Movie #4 – The Godfather

“Talk about great BOGO discounts! As a successful salesman, I know what this guy needs and when I show him the deal he could get, he won’t be able to say no.”

Actual quote: “I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse.”


Movie #5 – Dirty Dancing

“How dare you let anyone sit in that chair that’s tucked away where no one can see them. You can’t hide her talent forever so I’m going to rescue her, then dance with her in a racy slash unclean way, and you WILL sit there and watch us.”

Actual quote: “Nobody Puts Baby in a corner.”


Movie #6 – Never Been Kissed

Please accept my apologies. I planned on being here early but traffic was terrible and I basically hit every red light! Deep down I knew I wanted to be with you but I’m a stubborn man who couldn’t see the forest for the trees. I’m late, but better late than never, right? Now plant one on me!”

Actual quote: “Sorry, I’m late. It took me forever to get here.”


Movie #7 – Jerry Maguire

“Quiet down for a second. Hold that thought because as soon as you walked in I decided, ‘Yes. Whatever he says, yes.’ It’s fine you interrupted my women’s club meeting. We were talking about you, anyway. I’m just glad my husband is home.”

Actual quote: “You had me at ‘hello’.”
