* A minor example from ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': there is one notorious episode where Lana is accepted into a sorority of vampires (yeah, it's exactly how it sounds) and when she reacts with surprise, they rave about how awesome Lana supposedly is. One of the vampire girls exclaims "[[CharacterShilling C'mon, Lana! You're amazing]]!" However, the line has often been quoted as "Face it, Lana, you're amazing!", including on the page for CharacterShilling as the page quote, until it was corrected to the actual quote. The reason the misquote is so widespread in the fandom is actually because it was misquoted by Neal Bailey's highly popular episode review column on Superman Homepage.[[note]]The misquote may have come from confusion from the memetic "Face it, tiger, you just hit the jackpot" line from ''ComicBook/SpiderMan''[[/note]] Either way, the correct quote is still a perfect example of the show's attempts to shill Lana.

** Spock never said the line "It's life, Jim, but not as we know it," which is used repeatedly in the song "Star Trekkin'." He does say something similar in "The Devil in the Dark":

** Spock never said directly says the line "It's life, Jim, but not as we know it," which is used repeatedly in the parody song "Star Trekkin'." He does say something similar lines a couple of times though, like in "The Devil in the Dark":Dark" and when describing the Organians in "Errand of Mercy":

* "Oh no, not the goblins!" was not said OncePerEpisode on ''Series/TheNoddyShop'', despite most reviews of the show claiming it did happen. The actual line, "Not the goblins!" was only said in one episode, and it was sung by the Ruby Reds, who always sing their lines.

-->(In a short with Mr Bill driving a car) ''Mr Hands'' : Oh no, Mr Bill! Looks like you have a flat! Good thing Mr Sluggo has a jack....
* Most people who spoof ''Series/SesameStreet'' have two characters (usually a human and a Muppet) talking directly to the viewers in a fairly condescending way ("Hi, boys and girls! We're talking about the letter A today!"). While the characters do talk directly to the viewers a lot, they never call them "kids" specifically, and most ''Sesame'' episodes actually have, y'know, a plot.

** At one point, a photo of Oscar circulated social media sites with the caption "Just because you're trash doesn't mean you can do great things. It's called garbage can, not garbage cannot." This caused many to believe that Oscar himself said this quote. There is no evidence at all that he ever said something like that (nevermind that it's too positive to come from his mouth).

* People doing impressions of Frank Spencer in ''Series/SomeMothersDoAveEm'' will ''always'' go for the phrase "Ooh, Betty, the cat's done a whoopsie on the carpet!" After the birth of Frank and Betty's daughter it was sometimes "the baby's done a whoopsie on the carpet!" He never said either of them. In a 2016 charity sketch where Michael Crawford returned to the role, this gets lampshaded when the adult Jessica refers to doing a whoopsie on the carpet when she was a baby, and Frank says he doesn't remember that happening.

** In "The Naked Time", Sulu is often quoted as saying "I'll protect you, fair maiden!" to which Uhura replies, "Sorry, neither!" What Sulu actually says is "Aha!, fair maiden!"

* Two famous kids' show "bloopers" were never said, despite millions of people saying they were watching and/or listening: "[[IsThisThingStillOn That oughtta hold the little bastards]]" as attributed mainly to radio host Uncle Don, and "Cram it, Clownie!" as attributed mainly to a disgruntled kid on ''The Bozo Show''. Not only were they never uttered, but there isn't even agreement on ''how'' they were never uttered. Depending on whom you ask, the two above speakers apocryphally said "That oughtta hold the little S.O.B.'s for another week!" and "Cram it, Clown!" Don't believe the Kermit Schaefer blooper records on the Uncle Don thing... it's one of his many [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kermit_Schaefer#Early_bloopers dramatized recordings]], in this case of something that never happened.

* Entertainer Arthur Godfrey, who hosted three different shows on CBS Radio & TV throughout the 1950s, was often quoted as saying "How are you, how are you, how are you," pronouncing it "Ha-why-ya ha-why-ya ha-why-ya!" People who imitated him for years, including Ralph Malph on ''Series/HappyDays'', used that quote. However, Godfrey apparently only used it once, in a recorded 1979 radio PSA (for Social Security Direct Deposit) in which he actually says it to make the point that he'd never said it in the past.

** Robert Baratheon never used the phrase "Dothraki hordes on an open field, Ned!" when talking about the threat of Khal Drogo. He does say "There's a war coming, Ned..." but his discussion of tactics for fighting the Dothraki comes from a different conversation entirely, with Cersei. Even then, he remains calm throughout the discussion, with the closest thing to the meme being "only a fool would fight a Dothraki horde on an open field."

* Although it ''sounds'' like something she would say, on ''Radio/TheBurnsAndAllenShow'' Gracie Allen's SigningOffCatchPhrase is not "[[RepeatAfterMe Good night, Gracie]]" to Creator/GeorgeBurns' "Say good night, Gracie". It's just "Good night".
