In a scene of the sequel ‘’Avengers: Endgame’’, Tony Stark puts his daughter Morgan (Lexi Rabe) to bed. Before he closes the door, he says “I love you tons,” and Morgan replies, “I love you 3000.“
The Avengers: Endgame’s most iconic line “I Love You 3000” wasn’t even in the script but improvised on the way by Robert Downey Jr. The memorable quote “I Love You 3000” at the film Avengers: Endgame. Has seen it being used online as people express love and make jokes about the emotionally resonant line. It is understood that it was originally something that Robert Downey, Jr.’s actual kid told him and he wanted it incorporated into movie as it wasn’t initially even in the script.
It also noted that the screening count time of all the Marvel superheroes movies from the first to the last count to 3000 minutes. Therefore the line was put there intentionally by the makers of the movie.
Another way people interpret is when Tony says “I love you tons” she says “I love you 3000” meaning since a ton has 2000 pounds, then saying 3000 means she loves her dad more than a ton.
I Love You 3000 is also a title of a song by Stephanie Poetri.
