    Jack Finney's sequel to Time and Again was called From Time to Time. It contains what I consider a possible explanation of the Mandela Effect, based on two people time traveling to change the outcome of the Titanic voyage. In the book, some people remember JFK's second term, the Titanic docking in New York, etc. I alternate between surprise and frustration that we have made it to 2017, with the majority of people appearing to accept the status quo. I keep thinking that this isn't what I signed up for. Would John Lennon have Watched the Wheels for 37 more years?
    Somewhat off topic (apologies in advance) but interesting: Somewhere In Time has always been a favorite movie of mine; reading through this thread inspired me to watch it again last night (it's been years since I've seen it; maybe as far back as the 1990s or early 2000s...). Watching it through this time, I may have experienced my own "Mandela Effect"; I distinctly remember a scene in the movie, when the character Richard Collier first meets McKenna by knocking on her hotel door (in that version Collier is a complete stranger to her and she is taken aback (naturally); she is at first standoffish, which requires a little more persistence from Collier to win over her affections. Specifically, I clearly remember one line from the movie that was no longer there: Collier said, quote, "please don't do that, Ms. McKenna (as she goes to close the door on him)... you have no idea how far I've come..." That one line had such an impact on me when I first saw the movie that I have remembered it ever since. And that's when she says, "are you the one?"

    It could very well be that I watched an edited version of the movie last night, or maybe the line is still there and I just missed it (I have not sat through the scene a second time looking for it, thanks to the clumsiness of the fire stick), but I just thought it was odd that it appeared as if the scenes had changed and the one distinctive memory I had of the movie was no longer there ... Anybody else familiar with the movie remember that one line???

    Screenplays here. I've not looked through these to see if they're the same... sometimes uploaded screenplays aren't necessarily the final produced version.

    She asks that question out by the tree along the lake. She specifically says:

    "Is it you?"

    It is also exactly what she says in the book. Page 142 of the 1998 TOR paperback edition. This is also the way it was when I first saw the film the day it opened.
