What Is The 'Trusting You Is My Decision' Quote?
In 2011, a JoyReactor user shared a meme that seemingly came from 9GAG showing SpongeBob and Patrick sitting on the floor. The meme's caption reads, "Spongebob: What if I break your trust someday? Patrick: Trusting you is my decision, proving me wrong is your choice."
Although the show isn't known for its touching moments, anyone who sees the meme out-of-context would assume that the quote comes from an episode of SpongeBob Squarepants. However, no matter how many episodes of SpongeBob you watch, you will never find a scene where the quote is spoken. It is not a real quote from SpongeBob, just a little bit of innocent trolling and misinformation.
How Is 'Trusting You Is My Decision' Used In Memes?
Despite not actually being from SpongeBob, the 'Trusting You' quote has gained viral spread online over the past 10-plus years. What's interesting is that it's still being attributed to SpongeBob and Patrick and while many have caught onto it being a fake quote, others still seem to believe it's a real quote from the show.
Last year the quote went viral on TikTok, resulting in literally thousands of videos that seemingly have no idea SpongeBob never discussed the importance of trust with Patrick. Earlier this year, the unironic Facebook quotes page Pieces Of My Soul shared the quote to hundreds of thousands of reactions and 70,000 shares, with man commenters seemingly believing it's from SpongeBob.
Clearly, a lot of people love the message behind the quote, so maybe it doesn't matter where it comes from. Still, it's hard as a SpongeBob fan in the know not to laugh when this poignant quote unironically comes across your feed for the 10th time.
