Complete this quote from the original “Oliver!” musical: “Please, sir,” what?
"I want some more!"
This often misquoted line belongs to the novel Oliver Twist by the English writer Charles Dickens. You may think you know this iconic quote, but your ears or memory may be deceiving you. When young Oliver Twist went up to Mr. Bumble, bowl in hand, to ask for seconds, what exactly did Oliver Twist say? Most people remember it as "Please Sir, may I have some more?", but that phrase was never in the book or in the movies. The actual quote is "Please Sir, I want some more!" Regardless of what he said, Mr. Bumble certainly got the message.
