Your Next Line is… (also known as "Your Next Line will Be…" or "Next You're Gonna Say…") is a catchphrase that has become associated with the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure character Joseph Joestar. The quote is often used by Joseph as part of his cleverness to predict what his opponents are about to say next. Online, the quote has become a popular form of shitposting in the JoJo fandom where a user would write in a sentence that other users are about to say and those who participate would repeat the sentence followed by showing a sense of shock or confusion in their reply, thus prompting the snowclone Your Next Line is X.
This quote originated from the second story arc of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure titled Battle Tendency which was published from 1988 to 1989. The quote made its first appearance in the 47th chapter of the manga titled Sad News. In the chapter, Joseph engages battle against a thug who was harassing his friend. Among the tactics he used, Joseph predicted what the thug was about to say next, prompting him to be shocked and confused (shown below). Throughout the rest of the story, Joseph would use his catchphrase against various opponents such as Straizo, Santana, Ceasar, Esidisi, and Kars.
Online, the catchphrase has become a popular form of shitposting primarily on the YouTube comments of JoJo related videos. One of the banners featured in 4chan uses edited panels taken from the 79th chapter of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure wherein antagonist Esidisi uses Joseph's trick against him (shown below).
On August 30th, 2013, YouTube user ShonenGameZ uploaded a video showing all of the events of Joseph using his catchphrase to predict what his opponents are about to say in the 2013 fighting game JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle which gathered over 365,000 views within 2 years (shown below, left). On June 22nd, 2014, YouTube user José Fino uploaded a compilation video of all the times Joseph used his technique throughout the 2012 anime adaptation of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure which gathered over 793,000 views within 23 months (shown below, right).
On October 16th, 2014, Reddit user hawxx_ submitted post titled Your next line is "Little Mac is OP!" on the Super Smash Bros subreddit which features an edited image of the character Little Mac with Joseph Joestar's signature costume (shown below). The post gathered 521 points (89% upvoted) and 171 comments prior to being archived.
