The actual message from Apollo 13 was first delivered by astronaut Jack Swigert who said: "OK, Houston, we've had a problem here." Astronaut Lovell then repeated: "... Ah, Houston, we've had a problem." The line has often been misquoted as: "Houston, we've got a problem." Some of the film's posters emphasized and reinforced the misquote, since they were printed with: "Houston, we have a problem."
