* WaltDisney said "[[MickeyMouse It WAS all started BY a mouse]]". Not "It all started with a mouse".
* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', the words of House Stark are "Winter is Coming", not "Brace Yourselves, Winter is Coming", as the popular Internet Meme would lead you to believe.
* From ''Franchise/StarTrek'' (apart from the TropeNamer, above):
** While we're talking Scotty, he has likely never said ''"She canna' take much more of this!"'' onscreen. It's in the theatrical trailer of ''Film/{{Star Trek VI|The Undiscovered Country}}'' but was cut from the version seen in theaters.
** Another ''Franchise/StarTrek'' example: The Borg are oft quoted as saying "Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated." While they arrange those sentences in any number of ways in their various appearances (sometimes in the midst of a full paragraph or two), they never use that one. The closest they come is in the ''Next Generation'' episode "I, Borg", where the Borg, "Hugh", says, "We are Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile." Ironically, the story treatment for the ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' premiere calls the Borg's line "immortal words," even though the construction they used had yet to be spoken in any form of Franchise/StarTrek.
*** [[AscendedMeme The Borg do say the exact construction in the Arcade light-gun game of the series.]]
** Bones never said "Dammit, Jim! I'm a doctor, not a --" He said "[[ImADoctorNotAPlaceholder I'm a doctor, not a --]]" and similar phrases very often though: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVhcB9ucmdg see here]]
*** Also, it would be awfully unlikely for them to get away with saying "dammit" on '60s television, especially on a regular basis. This was the era in which Kirk used "hell" to make a PrecisionFStrike at the end of "The City on the Edge of Forever". And that was the only instance of swearing in three seasons.
*** In ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'' he actually did say "Damn it, Jim," but that was followed up with a complaint about Kirk's birthday feeling like a funeral - he made no mention of being a doctor.
*** The original timeline's Bones may never have said "dammit", but it became an AscendedMeme in the [[Film/StarTrek 2009 movie]]. And even then, he only said "Dammit, ''man''" - he wasn't talking to Kirk.
*** When ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'' first played in theaters, [=McCoy=] got to say "god damn" soon after he beamed aboard. This has been cut down to "damn" in subsequent releases.
** [=McCoy=] also never says "I'm just a plain old country doctor." The closest he comes is in "The Alternative Factor" where he says "This is a big ship, I'm just a country doctor", and in "The Deadly Years" where he says ""I'm not a magician, Spock, just an old country doctor."
** The most famous line associated with Doctor Beverly Crusher in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' is, "Jean-Luc, I have something to tell you," always spoken when one or both of them are facing imminent death. Then they are, of course, immediately [[FalseStart interrupted]] before she can say anything else. However, while that general scenario happened several times during the series, she never addressed Picard with those exact words. The closest version came in the episode ''The High Ground'', where she says, "Jean-Luc, there are some things I want to tell you in case we don't get out of this."
** 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":
--->Within range of our sensors, '''there is no life''', other than the accountable human residents of this colony beneath the surface. '''At least, no life as we know it'''.
** The opening narration is occasionally misquoted as "These are the voyages of the Star Trek ''Enterprise''," which doesn't even make ''sense''. The phrase "Star Trek" is in fact never used in the movies or television series, outside of the ForgottenThemeTuneLyrics, until spoken in ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'' by Zefram Cochrane. "And you people, you're all ... astronauts ... on ... some kind of [[TitleDrop star trek]]." Prior to this, the closest phrasing was "your trek through the stars," said by [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens Q]] in the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' series finale "All Good Things..."
** A small scale ''Star Trek'' BeamMeUpScotty occurred among the cast and crew of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. Apparently they were under the impression that the Original Series episode "This Side Of Paradise" contained the line "I'm not going back, Jim". The line became an in joke and they even used it in the riffing on TouchOfSatan. However, they later rented the episode and realized that no such line appears.
* On ''TheBurnsAndAllenShow'' Gracie Allen's SigningOffCatchPhrase is not "[[RepeatAfterMe Goodnight, Gracie]]" to Creator/GeorgeBurns' "Say goodnight, Gracie". It's just "Goodnight".
** Although it ''sounds'' like something she would say. The duo who really used this was Rowan and Martin on NBC's 1968 variety show ''Laugh-In''. "Say good night, Dick." "Good night, Dick!"
** This was referenced by Data in an episode of StarTrekTheNextGeneration
--> Wesley: Say goodbye, Data!
--> Data: Goodbye, Data.
--> <>
--> Data: Accessing...Ah! Burns and Allen - Roxy Theatre, New York City, 1932: it still works.
* Paul Hogan's infamous Australian tourism ads didn't say "Throw another shrimp on the barbie" but "I'll slip an extra shrimp on the barbie for you."
** An ad campaign in Australia made a point of overturning this stereotype, insisting that the more accurate stereotype was throwing a ''steak'' on the barbie.
** About halfway down [[http://www.lspace.org/books/apf/reaper-man.html this page]] is a list of misquotes of this exact ad. Apparently, everyone remembers it differently.
* "Yeah! Science, bitch!" was never said on ''Series/BreakingBad''. Although "[[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch]]" is practically Jesse Pinkman's CatchPhrase, the scene in question (ironically) is one of the few times where he ''doesn't'' say it. Instead it's "Yeah, Mr. White! Yeah, science!"
** Nor did Hank ever say "Jesus Christ, Marie" when he started collecting minerals [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope but he does say it]] after the Schraders watch Walt's "confession" video implicating Hank in his crimes.]]
* Hunter S. Thompson didn't say "The TV business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side."; it was
-->The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason.
* "Just the facts, Ma'am" came not from ''Franchise/{{Dragnet}}'', but from the various StanFreberg parodies of the show. The phrase Jack "Joe Friday" Webb actually used on the show was "All we want are the facts, Ma'am" (and sometimes "All we know are the facts, Ma'am").
** Became something of an AscendedMeme in the 1987 film, where Dan Aykroyd's Joe Friday (the nephew of Webb's) says it.
* Carl Sagan's TV appearances were famous for his distinctive pronunciation of the word "billions" -- but the phrase "billions and billions" so commonly associated with him actually came from a Johnny Carson parody on ''Series/TheTonightShow''.
** He actually named one of his books "Billions and Billions" after this quote, and explained where it came from. (He also noted that the pronunciation of "billions" came from a desire to avoid confusion with "millions".)
* Ralph Kramden never actually said "Bang-zoom, to the moon!" on ''TheHoneymooners'' -- it's actually a blend of two different catchphrases, "One of these days, one of these days. Bang! Zoom!" and "To the moon, Alice, to the moon!". Similarly, many other catch phrases associated with that show and Jackie Gleason are mixes-and-matches of bits of actual catch phrases. Also, "Pow, right in the kisser!" was allegedly a Kramden CatchPhrase in the (now lost) early variety show sketches, but did not actually appear in the regular series.
* The phrase "[[ReversePolarity Reverse the polarity of the neutron flow!]]" , despite being seen as a TechnoBabble CatchPhrase of the Third Doctor in ''Series/DoctorWho'', was never used in that form in his era of the show, with, aside from an instance in ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS8E5TheDaemons The Daemons]]'' ("Reverse the polarity!" [of the electrical power in general]), the closest thing to it being his warning to [[EvilCounterpart the Master]] in ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS9E3TheSeaDevils The Sea Devils]]'' that "I reversed the polarity of the neutron flow", and that things were thus about to get explosive (although he reversed the polarity of other things quite a bit, and once "fused the controls to the neutron flow"). He repeated it when he reappeared in the 20th anniversary special. Ironically, the line was used by the Fifth Doctor more than the Third Doctor, and has been used a number of times by other Doctors, ''because'' it was seen as a CatchPhrase.
** More recently, the Tenth has lamented losing his touch at reversing polarities.
** Tegan's fake swear word "Rabbits!" is a similar case. She only said it twice in the 19 serials featuring her as a companion, yet it's remembered by viewers as her CatchPhrase and included in nearly every novel and short story she appears in (all written over a decade after she left the show).
** "It's bigger on the inside!" really isn't uttered all that much. Just about the only times it is used is when it is [[LampshadeHanging pointed out that people say it]]. There are many similar reactions (the first being Ian's "But it was just a telephone box!") but one of the first times (if not THE first) times the actual quote is said it is by the Doctor in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS10E1TheThreeDoctors The Three Doctors]]. The 10th Anniversary episode.
** There's a widespread belief that the catsuit Zoe wore in "The Mind Robber" was purple, and it's frequently drawn like this in fanart. This seems to have originated from fan colourizations of black and white screenshots; there are colour photos on the DVD showing it was actually silver.
** In ''Film/AnAdventureInSpaceAndTime'', a play version of the early years of ''Doctor Who'''s creation, we see children running around yelling "Exterminate, exterminate!!" at each other after the broadcast of the serial "The Daleks" to indicate the popularity of the Daleks. However, the Daleks didn't say "Exterminate, exterminate" in "The Daleks" at all - one does, at one point, remind the others that "the prisoners must be exterminated. I repeat, exterminated" in a throwaway line. Even "The Dalek Invasion of Earth" doesn't contain any Daleks yelling "Exterminate, exterminate" - although we do hear a Dalek in the background of a scene shouting "Kill, kill, kill" in a similar manner. The Daleks didn't start yelling "Exterminate" until TheStinger at the end of the last episode of "The Space Museum", leading up to "The Chase", which codified their speech patterns in general, such as "exterminate" as a CatchPhrase, the use of "I/we obey", CallingYourAttacks, and the simplified, shouty grammar.
** The Fourth Doctor never told anyone to "[[PardonMyKlingon spack off]]" - he said "just back off", but due to the wonky sound recording it isn't amazingly clear. Nevertheless, "spack" sees some use in ExpandedUniverse stories, especially the books.
* "Nil points!" never appears in the EurovisionSongContest. It's actually "nul points". And, anyway, they never say it at all because of the way they do the scores.
** The misunderstanding probably comes about from the fact that some songs which score very badly have zero points (translated into pidgin French as "nil points") through most of the show (possibly to the end) leading to people (quite possibly only those at home) commenting that such-and-such a song has "nil points" as a riff on the way the judges' scoring is read out in English and French. This probably lead to people thinking that the "nil points" thing was a quote from the national judging panels even though, as mentioned above, they only mention the scores when they are handing out one or more points to a song - scores of zero are never mentioned.
** They definitely used to say 'nul points' when reading out the score tables after each round of point allocation. They don't do it in modern-era Eurovision because the number of competitors means the table's huge, and it would take forever to read it out in two or three languages (English, French, host's language if neither of those).
* 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.
* In the Mr. Bill sketches from ''SaturdayNightLive'' the phrase is just, "Oh no!" and not "Oh no, Mr. Bill!". It's pretty strange how this misquote was started seeing as how it's said by Mr. Bill himself.
** This is possibly MemeticMutation melding the "Oh no!" from an earlier catchphase, "Look out, Mr. Bill!" which was reportedly spawned by a radio show in the 1940's or 50's.
** Or the quote came from Mr. Bill merchandise, which often featured both the catchphrase and the name of the character, in that order, without quotation marks.
** The phrase WAS sometimes said by Mr. Hands, who was the narrator in the shorts.
-->(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....
* Australian talk show host Derryn Hynch never actually used the line "Shame, shame." he is often associated with, it comes from Steve Vizard's recurring impersonation of him on sketch comedy ''Fast Forward''.
* The (in)famous Bishop and the Nightie" affair on ''TheLateLateShow'' never had a woman say she was "naked" on her wedding night. In February 1966, there was a segment on the show where a Mr and Mrs Fox had to answer questions about their marriage; Mrs Fox was asked what colour nightdress she wore on her wedding night; she said "Transparent," then admitted "I didn't wear any!"; after the audience stopped laughing, she changed her answer to "white." There was no outcry -- only three phone complaints, and one telegram from Thomas Ryan, Catholic Bishop of Clonfert (''"Disgusted with disgraceful performance."''), who later offered extreme criticism of the show, calling on "all decent Irish Catholics" to protest. They didn't.
* The German crime series ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derrick_%28TV_series%29 Derrick]]'' often has Derrick send his assistant Harry to get the car to drive him somewhere. Thus, the phrase "Harry, hol schon mal den Wagen" ("Harry, go get the car in the meantime") was coined, though none of the 281 episodes of the legendary show actually featured the renowned phrase. The line was finally included in a tongue-in-cheek animated special made after the live action version had been cancelled.
* A popular trend in ''Series/StargateSG1'' fanfiction is to have O'Neill call artifacts "rocks" while Daniel insists that they are "artifacts". However, such an exchange never occurs in the show itself.
** It should also be noted that no [[EngagingChevrons chevrons were engaged]] on Stargate SG-1 until around season 3. Even after that, they were "encoded" most of the time.
* The show ''{{Friends}}'' has maybe one actual occasion where Chandler uses any variant of the phrase "Could I ''be'' more (blank)?" without it being a parody of said speaking pattern.
** "I don't talk like that. That is so ''not'' true. ...That is ''so'' not...that is so ''not''...oh, shut up!"
*** Potentially justified though, because the idea of this expression as a catchphrase originated in story, with the rest of the group making fun of it. This means the character could have said it hundreds of times offscreen.
*** Joey clearly ''intended'' this to be seen as Chandler's catch phrase in the episode where he was wearing all of Chandler's clothes in retaliation for Chandler hiding all of his underwear.
---> Joey: Could I ''be'' wearing any more clothes?
* There is not a single episode of ''Series/{{Lassie}}'' in which [[TimmyInAWell Timmy falls down a well]]. He fell down just about everything else, yes, but Lassie had never had to get help for Timmy falling down a well.
** In fact, Lassie has fallen down a well at least once.
** So did Cory Stuart, the Ranger who adopted Lassie when Timmy's family [[PutOnABus moved to Australia]].
** Neither has Timmy ever been "trapped in the old mill".
* "Suits you, sir!" was never ever said in ''TheFastShow''. The line was ''always'' "'''Suit''' you, sir!"
** It ''was'' actually said by one of The Offroaders, prompting the other to correct him.
* Jan Brady said "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!!!" ''once'' through the entire series of ''TheBradyBunch''. It entered pop culture through SNL parodies and the "Brady Bunch Movie".
* Tonto on ''Franchise/TheLoneRanger'' never said "What you mean ''we'', white man?" (sometimes changed to "What you mean we, Kemosabe?" to make the reference clearer, making it an example on ''top'' of an example) That was from a popular joke about the show.
* "You dirty rat", [[{{Casablanca}} "play it again, Sam"]] and [[{{Tarzan}} "Me Tarzan, you Jane"]] are all referenced to in an episode of ''{{QI}}'':
-->"Why do these films always forget to put their most famous line in?"
* The Robot from ''LostInSpace'' never said "Danger, danger, Will Robinson".
** That's because the catch phrase has only one "danger". It was said once in the series, episode 11 of season 3 ("The Deadliest of the Species").
* The MemeticMutation "Yo/sup dawg, I heard you like..." is an exaggeration. Generally, the actual examples on ''Series/PimpMyRide'' were merely "Since you like..." or "We know you like...", since at that time Xzibit would already know the client's likes and dislikes.
* No GameShow has ever used the phrase "Johnny, tell them what they've won!" There have been several [[TheAnnouncer announcers]] named Johnny (most notably Johnny Gilbert, Johnny Olson, Johnny Jacobs, John Harlan, John Cramer), and they have told countless contestants about the prizes, but never in this form. Probably the closest would be Bob Barker on ''ThePriceIsRight'' after a contestant comes up from Contestant's Row, but before the pricing game is announced would often say to Johnny Olsen, "Johnny tell ( him or her ) what they could win."
* Speaking of game shows, the catch phrase on ''Series/FamilyFeud'' is "(our) survey ''said''," not "says" (although Steve Harvey sometimes uses "says"). And it's only used in the [[BonusRound Fast Money]] round, not the main game. Ricki Lake got the latter wrong on ''Gameshow Marathon''.
* And another one: The contestant who said "in the ass" in response to the question "Where, specifically, is the weirdest place that you personally, girls, have ever gotten the urge to make whoopee?" on ''TheNewlywedGame''. Many people thought it was "In the butt, Bob", or some Ebonics-laden variation such as "It be the butt, Bob." Also, the lady who gave the answer (an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XM5hbS7GlU ordinary, white housewife]] named Olga Perez) actually said it [[http://www.snopes.com/radiotv/tv/newlywed.asp shyly, after much uncomfortable hesitation]], not assertively.
** A slight inversion though. Bob claimed for YEARS this NEVER happened in any variation in the first place. He even had t-shirts made that said "She Never Said In The Butt Bob." The clip was finally found in the early 2000s and Bob admitted he had completely forgotten the moment and had convinced himself it never happened.
* Jim Bowen, of ''[[BullseyeUK Bullseye]]'', never once said "Super, Smashing, Great" on the programme- he said "Super", he said "Smashing", he said "Great". But never all three in one go. He did, however, say it in a beer commercial some time later.
* RonaldReagan never once said, "The driver is either missing, or he's dead" in ''Death Valley Days''; this is a misunderstood {{meme|ticMutation}} in ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. The line was typically exclaimed during a scenic shot that resembled Death Valley, which led the many audience members to believe it was indeed a Reagan quote. In fact, it ties back to an earlier MST3K episode where someone on screen who sounds almost exactly like Reagan says, "The driver is gone, or he's hiding;" an audience member then capitalized on his voice by saying, "Welcome to Death Valley Days!" From then on, it became RunningJoke, but the quote was slightly misremembered.
* While ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' is the TropeNamer for RecruitTeenagersWithAttitude, Zordon actually only says this in the opening credits. (In the first episode, what he asks Alpha 5 for is to find "five overbearing and over-emotional humans" in the area; Alpha facepalms and exclaims, "Oh no, not that! Not... teenagers!" to which Zordon replies in the affirmative.)
* Inverted with MisterRogers and the phrase he's somehow famous for saying, "Can you say ____?" The line appears in several parodies but it was assumed thanks to a book called ''The Simple Faith of Mister Rogers'' that he never said it on the show, though he did in fact believe the phrase would be an insult to the intelligence of even his very young audience. However, he does use the phrase on a few episodes, but always used words that would be genuinely challenging, such as "radamacue" (featured in an [[http://http://neighborhoodarchive.com/mrn/episodes/1463/index.html episode of the week called "Mister Rogers Goes to School"]]). The most notable parody of MisterRogers to do this is one that appears on the National Lampoon album, ''That's Not Funny, That's Sick''. In two tracks on the album, Mister Roberts is constantly asking the audience, and his guests, if they can say some given word.
** Also, the first line of the show's opening theme song is "It's a beautiful day in '''this''' neighborhood. It is often misquoted as "...in '''the''' neighborhood", and is even sung that way in the theme to the new [[SpinoffBabies spinoff]] ''Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood''.
** ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' correctly used "it's a beautiful day in ''this'' neighborhood" as a puzzle on an episode that also happened to feature a cameo from Fred Rogers.
* The TropeNamer is subject to ConversationalTroping (naturally, by Reid, the show's usual source of random trivia) in the ''Series/CriminalMinds'' episode "What Happens At Home".
* ''Series/{{MASH}}'' has an in-universe example: in the episode "Movie Night," the gang entertain themselves with Father Mulcahy impersonations, one of which involves the use and over-use of the word "jocularity." The thing is, Mulcahy has never used this exclamation--at least not yet. He does so once, but in a ''later'' episode.
** In the short story [[http://www.stanleythewhale.com/StW/index.php/issue-1/issue-1-short-stories/45-the-van-on-atlantic-street "The Van on Atlantic Street"]] by Desmond Warzel, one character does an imitation of the Mulcahy imitation, upon which he is told that Mulcahy never said "jocularity." The ''Franchise/StarTrek'' TropeNamer and [[{{Casablanca}} "Play it again, Sam"]] are also referenced by way of explanation.
** A straight example is in the finale. Hawkeye does not actually say "It wasn't a chicken!"
* Most people (usually haters who wish to add another black mark to the series) believed that Series/BarneyAndFriends said the message, "A stranger is a friend you haven't met." He never actually said that! Not once. They've been close to saying this twice: in "Playing It Safe!" In the episode, it was ''Derek'' who uttered, "Strangers are people you don't know, and they could be bad people", and in the "Safety First", Barney tells Baby Bop that a stranger is someone you don't know.
** [[https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/alt.tv.barney/TmVN4OyZnR4 According to this page]], there is an urban legend that Barney actually said it in a LostEpisode that was pulled because young children could misinterpret the message.
** It has also been attributed to Creator/{{Yeats}}... and it doesn't even sound like him.
** It was a popular cute poster slogan in the 1960s.
* A milder version in ''Series/TheSopranos'': the characters rarely, if ever, spoke of a person getting "whacked"; the preferred term was "clipped".
* Ricky used the word "'splain" a couple times on ''ILoveLucy'', but never the phrase "Lucy, you've got some 'splainin' to do."
* ''Series/{{Batman}}'' has a mild example. While Robin's infamous "Holy [relevant phrase]!" CatchPhrase ''did'' appear constantly, he usually ended it at that--he rarely ever said "Holy [relevant phrase], Batman!", as most people quote him. This one's a [[JustifiedTrope justified]] case, though, since "Holy [noun]!" is such a generic phrase in Western culture that people might not otherwise associate it with ''Batman''.
* A minor example from {{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. Either way, the correct quote is still a perfect example of the show's attempts to shill Lana.
* In addition to [[YouFailBiologyForever not being very good neuroscience]], the "buffalo and brain cells" Internet meme that is supposedly quoted from Cliff on ''Cheers'' never actually happened on any episode.
* 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 ''HappyDays'', used that quote. However, Godrey 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.
* One review of the ''Series/TheGoldbergs'' episode "Mini Murray" said that the grandpa said "Okay, [[PrecisionFStrike where the fuck]] is the mouse?" after being tricked that Poltergeist was TheGreatMouseDetective. He really said "Okay, where's the mouse?". Also, anyone who watches the show knows that most swears are replaced with a censor beep.
* Many of the phrases commonly associated with the Muppets were not originally used on ''TheMuppetShow'', or were hardly ever used. We remember them from the later movies and from ''MuppetBabies''. Fozzie Bear didn't say "Waka-waka-waka!" on ''The Muppet Show'', for example; he said "Hiya-hiya-hiya!" or simply "Nyaaah!" Also, Gonzo never said "Piggy, my sweet!" on ''The Muppet Show'' (and he wouldn't have, because Camilla the chicken was his love interest on that show). On the other hand, Miss Piggy ''did'' say "Hai-''yah''!" on the original show, and quite often. Kermit also did say "Heigh-ho" - but not "Heigh-ho, Kermit T. Frog here!"
** He ''did'' in fact say something like that, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dy49Yea3iZc just not on that show]].
