"Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of
some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch
them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be."

-- J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

Ah... I loved that quote. This was based on Holden's mishearing of the original poem. I've actually made a similar mistake, when I was listening to All Star, by Smash Mouth. I misheard "So what's wrong with taking the back streets?", with "What's wrong with taking the back seat?" That changes the meaning of the song completely, and I was shocked to hear the correct version.
