JSON Question

Trying to retrieve data from an API, but I cannot connect and I do not understand the error output

I'm trying to retrieve a random quote from an API (in the form of a JSON file) using this command:

curl -v -i -X GET

but I recieve the following output error:

[1] 4009

[2] 4010

[3] 4011

salpal@salpal-Aspire-E5-573G:~$ Error: wrong method.

[1] Done curl -X GET>

[2]- Done key=457653

[3]+ Done format=json

It says I am using the wrong method, but I am simply following the directions of the documentation specified here:

Does anyone know why this is happening?
