Popular Misquotations

"Beam me up, Scotty" is similar to the phrase,
"Just the facts, ma'am",
attributed to Jack Webb's character of Joe Friday on Dragnet,
"It's elementary, my dear Watson",
attributed to Sherlock Holmes,
"Luke, I am your father",
attributed to Darth Vader, or
"Play it again, Sam",

All four lines are the best known quotations from these works for many viewers,
but not one is an actual, direct quotation
