20 Famous Quotes That Were Never Actually Spoken

19. "Me Tarzan, You Jane" - Tarzan

Everyone knows that Johnny Weissmuller, while portraying Tarzan in the 1932 film, uttered the famous words "me Tarzan, you Jane", right? Wrong!

When Tarzan meet Jane in the jungle and pointed at her, their original conversation took this course...

Jane: (pointing at herself) "Jane."

Tarzan: "Jane."

Jane: "And you?"

Tarzan: "Tarzan, Tarzan."

Jane: "Tarzan."

Tarzan: "Jane."

Yeah, "Me Tarzan, You Jane" would certainly have been far snappier, wouldn't it?
