The viral trend of Millie Bobby Brown throwing a typical teenage temper tantrum is the perfect example.

Stranger Things‘ telekinetic teen Eleven played by Millie Brown is one of the strongest leads in the Netflix Original. Figuratively and literally! Back in season 1, it was her string of agonizing screams yelling “Papa” that took the internet by storm. You can relive the moment with this meme-worthy compilation from Still Watching Netflix.

Now, it’s a season 2 scene that has become a Twitter sensation. A frustrated Millie shouting “You are like Papa” though a very emotional scene on the show, is hysterical when used out of context. And fans are doing just that. So much so that it is one of the top trends!

The Origin Story of “You are like Papa”

For those living under a rock who don’t understand the reference, we’ve got you covered. The scene in question is from Season 2 episode 4 of Stranger Things. Being cooped up for her own protection is driving Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) a little stir crazy. As a result, she and Jim Hopper (David Harbour) have a huge fight. Hopper, who acts as a guardian and protector for Eleven, doesn’t want to take the unnecessary risk that may transpire if Eleven goes out.

High on emotions and overwhelmed by Eleven’s carelessness, Jim yells, “You are grounded. You know what that means? No Eggos and no TV for a week.” The rising rage unsurprisingly blows out of proportion and an angered Eleven yells “You are like Papa.”

Papa is Matthew Modine’s character, Dr. Brenner, who studied and performed experiments on Eleven ever since she was a baby. She had escaped his clutches in season 1 and that’s how the show begins.

Eleven comparing Hopper to Dr. Brenner might be a massive over-reaction, but it did give us the epic moment that will remain with us for a long time.
