I Don't Need Sleep, I Need Answers is a quote from Sheldon in an episode of The Big Bang Theory that later turned into a reaction image online.
The quote comes from the Big Bang Theory episode "The Einstein Approximation," which aired February 1st, 2010.
The quote began seeing use as a reaction image starting in the mid-2010s, primarily being used in fandom-based posts. On August 22nd, 2015, Imgur user alyssasiobhan07 posted an edit that gained over 10,000 points (shown below, left). On November 30th, 2015, Tumblr user bwibelle used the GIF of the scene to discuss a BTS music video, gaining over 1,300 notes (shown below, right).
In 2019, the format saw a resurgence on Reddit's /r/dankmemes with more surreal captions.
