    • Mac: Houston, we have a problem.

      This is the famous tagline from the 1995 movie Apollo 13. Astronaut Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks) says it to Mission Control after an oxygen tank explosion on the Apollo 13 spacecraft. Gary Sinise also starred in this film as astronaut Ken Mattingly.

      This is actually a misquote of the words used on the actual mission. The actual NASA transcript shows the following dialogue:

      SWIGERT (LMP): Okay, Houston--
      LOVELL (CDR): I believe we've had a problem here.
      CAPCOM (CC): This is Houston. Say again, please.
      LOVELL: Houston, we've had a problem.

      However, the version of the quote used in the movie and this episode has appeared so often that few people are aware of what the original words were.
