Dustin Hoffman in ‘The Midnight Cowboy’

Even if you’ve never seen The Midnight Cowboy, you have likely quoted it. The classic film quote “I’m walking here!” is blurted out by Dustin Hoffman as he tries to cross a busy street in New York City.

In fact, that line has come to be emblematic of New York itself, but the line was never meant to happen at all. According to Hoffman, they had just completed their 50th take of this important scene when a cab nearly hits them. Hoffman wanted to yell out that “We’re shooting here!” But the wires got crossed in his brain, causing him to blurt out something different and accidentally create film history.
