I'll admit it, I'm one of those people who loves to quote movies. Even though I know it can be a little annoying, there are times that I just can't help myself -- but I never claimed to have a photographic memory and I can only assume that I've messed up a few lines over the years, taking a relatively endearing geek trait and turning it into a social faux pas. But, it's good to know I'm not alone, because over at lovefilm.com, they took a poll of the most misquoted movie lines in history and the big winner may surprise you.

So what line have we all managed to mess up? According to lovefilm, it was a line from Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back that took the grand prize as the most misquoted line in movie history. As embarrassing as it may seem, even I was a little shocked to find out that "Luke, I am your father" was never actually spoken in the film. There I was thinking, "But that's the line, right?" -- and no, what Vader actually says to Luke out on the platform is "No, I am your father." (And if you don't believe me, watch the scene for yourself).

After the jump: find out which misquotes cracked the top 5. 2. "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?" – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
The original line begins with the words, "Magic Mirror..."

3. "Do you feel lucky, punk?" – Dirty Harry
This one might not come as a shock to any Dirty Harry fan, but what the renegade cop actually says is: "You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya punk?"

4. "Play it again, Sam" – Casablanca
I have to admit that I might have chosen this line as the number one misquote, considering that Humphrey Bogart never even says anything remotely close to this, and instead what Rick actually says to his piano playing friend is, "You played it for her, you can play it for me. If she can stand it, I can. Play it!"

5."Hello, Clarice" – The Silence of the Lambs
Again, this is a small mistake, but Lecter (ever the gentleman) greets Agent Starling with the line, "Good Evening, Clarice".

But that's the thing about us movie geeks -- we love lists, yet we also love to gripe about what didn't make it to the final cut. So just like with every other movie list, you can't always make room for everyone and a few votes will fall by the wayside (you can see the complete list over at The Guardian).

So instead of complaining about someone else's list, I'm going to throw in a few of my own. First up would have to be Wall Street and the fact that Michael Douglas never actually said "Greed is good", or how about Bela Lugosi's Dracula never uttering the immortal words "I want to suck your blood"? I'm going to stop here, but now I'm going to turn it over to you: leave your votes for the top movie (mis)quotes below...
