Therapist: No, also known as What Do We Do? or What Do We Say?, is a dialogue snowclone which grew popular on Twitter in the summer of 2019. The set up involves a therapist asking a patient what they encounter a problem. The patient responds with a jokey phrase to which the therapist replies, "no."


While dialogue parodies involving therapists have long been popular on Twitter, the first specific example of the "Therapist: No" template was posted on June 9th, 2019 by Twitter user @TechnicallyRon,[1] gaining over 850 retweets and 4,400 likes (shown below).

The format did not start becoming more popular on Twitter until roughly a month later. On July 3rd, 2019, Twitter user @CurledBitch[2] posted an example that gained over 12,000 retweets and 38,000 likes (shown below, left). On July 7th, Twitter user @stfu_sabs[3] posted one of the most popular examples to date, gaining over 192,000 retweets and 640,000 likes using It Really Do Be Like That Sometimes (shown below, right).
