I was browsing some old XKCD comics, and in one the author (Randall) mentions that "The Lion King" is one of the movies he knows word-for-word.  However the only line quoted from "The Lion King" is misquoted.  It's the line: "But thick as you are, pay attention!"  Randall writes it: "But as THICK as you are, pay attention!" That line is part of the opening stanza of a song, so it's got a memorable rhythm.  The moment I read that, the error was ridiculously obvious.  (And I don't bother to boast about knowing certain movies word-for-word.)
