About

"You Know How Much I Sacrificed" is a memorable quote uttered by the character Norman Osborn in the 2002 superhero film Spider-Man. Online, a screen-capture from the scene has been used in image macros featuring the quote as a punchline to various jokes about one's hardships.

Origin

On May 3rd, 2002, the film Spider-Man was released in theaters in the United States.[1] In the film, the character Norman Osborn (played by Willem Dafoe) is told by the board of his company Oscorp that he has been fired. He responds to this news by screaming, "You know how much I sacrificed?!?"

On August 4th, 2012, YouTuber ThirdTimeUnlucky shared an isolated clip of the moment. The post received more than 100,000 views in less than 10 years (shown below).



The quote is preceded by Norman saying, "Oh, You Can't Do This to Me," and is sometimes used together with the line.

Spread

Variations of the meme roughly began in 2012. An anonymous 9GAG [2] user posted one of the earliest on November 22nd, 2012 as the reaction to a deleted video game (shown below, left).

Over the next five years, the meme continued to grow in usage and popularity. On April 27th, 2017, Redditor [3] Joelin8r shared a variation with the caption, "When 8% of the sub's memes are created by you but they won't make you a mod." The post received more than 1,100 points (100% upvoted) in less than three years (shown below, center).

Weeks later, on June 28th, Instagram [4] user @icypurple shared a variation with the caption "When u stick to ur diet for 5 hours but ur still fat." The post received more than 1,100 likes in less than three years (shown below, right).

You Can't Do This to Me

"Oh, You Can't Do This to Me" refers to a memorable quote said by the 2002 film Spider-Man character Norman Osborn upon being told that he is fired. Starting in 2019, an image of Osborn paired with the quote gained popularity as an image macro and in GIF captions.
