You Wouldn't Get It refers to a memorable quote from the 2019 film Joker said by the main protagonist Arthur Fleck. Starting in mid-October 2019, the quote gained popularity as a reaction, used to express low expectations regarding one's comprehensive abilities.


On October 4th, 2019, American psychological thriller film Joker premiered in the United States.[1] In the final scene of the film, the titular character Arthur Fleck (Joker), portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is being interviewed by a psychiatrist when he starts laughing about a joke he thought about. After the psychiatrist inquired what the joke is about, he responds that she "wouldn't get it."

On October 12th, 2019, Redditor losteggwhites posted the earliest known meme based on the scene to /r/Kanye subreddit which gained over 4,100 upvotes in two weeks (shown below).[2]
