It’s Christmas. Rick shrinks Morty, injecting him into a homeless man to save Anatomy Park. Jerry tries to have a Christmas free of electronic devices, but regrets his decision when his parents introduce him to their new friend.
Dr. Xenon Bloom: There is no auto pilot, someone will have to stay behind and operate it manually.
[long pause while he looks at Morty & Anna]
Morty: [Morty and Anna look at each other,then back at Dr.Bloom]
Dr. Xenon Bloom: Ya this is all my fault, I’ll stay. It was a dick move for me to even pause like that.
Rick Sanchez: Listen, if the situation keeps on darkening, then you gotta do yourself a favor and pop by Pirates Of The Pancreas. I mean, the top priority is to, you know, get you guys out of there, but, I mean, if that becomes impossible then you gotta treat yourself.
- Fantastic Voyage (1966)
Morty is shrunk down and put into a human
- Ulysses (1967)
Joyce’s relationship with Jacob is a cuckolding relationship with respect to Leonard, paralleling Molly Bloom’s adulterous relationship with Blaze Boylan
- Superman (1978)
Mentioned by Jacob.
- Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
Pirates of the Pancreas is a nod at Pirates of the Caribbean
- The Haunted Mansion (2003)
One of the theme park rides is called “The Haunted Liver”
- Jurassic Park (1993)
Title reference. The plot of a park’s creatures running amok and killing people is directly parodying the plot of this film, and The Anatomy Park logo resembles that of the Jurassic Park sign
- Jerry’s Christmas sweater is miscolored – the red and green zig-zag elements should be reversed to make green Christmas trees. This goof is recognized in the commentary track by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon.
