their/there/they're, you're/your, two/to/too, and expressions that are said wrong.  I have a friend who swears "for all intents and purposes" is "for all intensive purposes."

Accept and Except - I hate when those get mixed up.  Also, Affect and Effect - I can't stand when those are mixed up either!
