RUN AWAY NOW TO AVOID AVENGERS: ENDGAME SPOILERS.
Okay. Spoilers ahoy.
Fans will already know that 'I love you 3000' is a line in Avengers: Endgame. After the events of Infinity War, all the remaining Avengers are at a loss as to how to bring back everyone who died in the snap. As a result, Tony Stark (Iron-Man) settles into home life with Pepper and together they have a daughter, Morgan. During one scene, Tony puts Morgan to bed and says "I love you tons". She replies "I love you 3000".
The entire scene is adorable and sweet but it is made gut-wrenchingly painful by the fact that Tony sacrifices himself later in the film to kill Thanos and save the universe. After Tony's funeral, Pepper plays a video message that Tony filmed before he and the Avengers used the time travel machine. The video was to be played in case of Tony's death, and in it he turns to Morgan and says: "I love you 3000".

With that in mind, we've gathered together a few of the best 'I love you 3000' memes that Avengers: Endgame has inspired.
