All I Have Are Negative Thoughts refers to a memorable quote from 2019 film Joker said by the main protagonist Arthur Fleck (Joker) to a social worker. Following the release of the film trailer in August 2019, the still image of Fleck captioned with the quote gained popularity as a reaction image, with the quote also being used as a snowclone.


On August 28th, 2019, the second trailer for the then-upcoming film Joker was released.[1] In one scene of the trailer, character Arthur Fleck (Joker), portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, tells his social worker that all he has are negative thoughts.

You don't listen, do you? You just ask the same questions every week. "How is your job?" "Do you have any negative thoughts?" All I have are negative thoughts.
