So lets say I'm animating an object that is moving across the screen from right to left. I set my start keyframe and then set my next, then my next, except this time I accidently moved my object too far over and need to move it back. I haven't yet set the keyframe by lifting my finger off the mouse button, so I move the position back. Then I move the object again and set my last keyframe. When I play it back my object moves as it is supposed to the first couple keyframes, but when it gets to the third it dances back and forth.

Even if I delete my last two or three keyframes and start over, AE seems to remember and does the dance every time. How do I stop it from remembering these positions so I can truly start over?

You need to learn about Bezier Motion paths, which can act goofy if you're not used to them. It can often be referred to as the Boomerang Effect.

This should be most helpful for you:
