The {{Trope Namer|s}}, "Beam me up, Scotty", was never actually uttered in ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''. One of the films got pretty close, but even then, it was phrased: "Scotty, beam me up." Contrary to popular belief, it is not even said in ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'' - though that's where they come closest: "Beam ''us'' up, Scotty". The actual phrase comes from a famous ''Star Trek'' bumper sticker - "Beam me up, Scotty, there's no intelligent life on this planet." It finally made an appearance in the franchise when Creator/WilliamShatner himself said it in the audiobook version of his 1995 novel ''The Ashes of Eden''. It was later used in the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' remake.[[labelnote:*]] Another example from Shatner is in his autobiography ''Up Till Now'', which comes in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-HGETS29Bw audiobook form.]] [[/labelnote]] More often, Kirk said "Four to beam up," and he was talking to whoever happened to be at the Transporter console. Very rare was this Scotty himself, who was the ''chief engineer,'' meaning ''no'' version of the command was said to him with any regularity.

* The [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen evil queen]] from ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' never said "Mirror, Mirror on the Wall" in the Disney version; she actually said "Magic Mirror on the Wall."

The "Mirror, Mirror" version of the saying is, however, accurate to various written versions of the fairy tale both in English and other languages.

Added DiffLines:

* The line 'I saw Goody Proctor with the devil' is normally used to reference the scene at the end of Act One of "Theatre/TheCrucible" where the girls cry out variations on 'I saw X with the devil'. However, that precise line does not appear in the play.

* Coach from ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'' is commonly viewed as someone who is obsessed with chocolate, due to him eating a chocolate bar in the intro and Nick teasing Coach about the escape chopper being made of chocolate. Coach never makes any reference to chocolate at all in the game - burgers, cotton candy, and pretty much any other food, yes, but never chocolate. This is probably due to his visual similarities to Doc Louis from ''VideoGame/PunchOut'', who in the Wii version is obsessed with chocolate.

** Ellis is commonly seen as a ManChild that is obsessed with the Kiddieland amusement park and horses. Ellis only gets excited about Kiddieland once in the Dark Carnival campaign and that's only if the game actually picks that line of dialogue for him to say. Likewise, he only says "Horse!" when he sees a statue of a horse in The Parish campaign as an observation. All the parodies online of Ellis will have him going nuts over horses and Kiddieland.

** Waluigi has never actually said "Too bad, Waluigi time". That line comes from the ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'' comics. He does say "Waluigi Time" in ''VideoGame/MarioKartDoubleDash'', and other games. Creator/CharlesMartinet [[MemeAcknowledgment has said it]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcdTwhcO-B8 upon request]].

* In Italy, many remember [[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones Fred Flintstone]] having as his own catchphrase "Wilma! Dammi il club!"[[labelnote:Translation]]"Wilma! Give me the club!"[[/labelnote]]. He never said that in the show itself, but only in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?=FjzfOaNHBUI a series of bug repellent commercials made in Italy]]. The line [[AscendedMeme was anyway used in the Italian dub of]] [[Film/TheFlintstones the first live action movie]] as Fred's first reaction when Wilma's mother comes to visit.

** An Apples to Apples box set once listed Stan and Kyle's catchphrase as, "Oh my God! '''We''' killed Kenny!" instead of, "Oh my God, '''they''' killed Kenny!"

***Not to mention Strong Bad "DELETING!" emails asking how he types with boxing gloves on; not only does he do that ''once'' (in an episode where that question isn't even the main focus), but in the one episode where it ''is'' the main focus, none of the multiple emails asking that question are deleted.

** Homsar has never said "I was raised by a cup of coffee". That was Strong Bad, doing an impression of Homsar. It doesn't help that one of the [[FunTShirt official Homsar tshirts]] did bear the slogan "Raised By A Cup Of Coffee". Homsar did however finally say the phrase in the 2017 Halloween Toon "Haunted Photo Booth"... But [[SubliminalSeduction backwards]].
