I've Connected the Two Dots is a quote from Shane Madej in a Buzzfeed Unsolved episode concerning the murder of JonBenét Ramsey in which he facetiously says "I've connected the two dots." Ryan Bergara replies, "You didn't connect shit," to which Madej reiterates "I've connected them." An image of the moment has been used as an exploitable template and reaction image to posts where a person claims to make a point.
On August 18th, 2017, Buzzfeed Unsolved released an episode on the murder of JonBenét Ramsey. When discussing the ransom amount asked for Ramsey, Madej says "I've connected the two dots" (shown below).
The image capturing the dialogue exchange began seeing use in memes roughly a year later. On April 11th, 2018, it appeared in a Tumblr post on hogwartshousehabits which said the image represented a "Ravenclaw" from the Harry Potter series (shown below, left). It also appeared in fan art drawn by Amino Apps user mishinx on August 7th of 2018.
The majority of posts using the image as a meme saw use in spring of 2019. On March 5th, K-Pop fan @SKZBios made a post which used the dialogue to represent the band Stray Kids and their fans, known as "Stays," gaining over 840 retweets (shown below, left). It appeared as a reaction image in /r/memes on January 23rd, 2019 (shown below, right).
