Rick and Morty: Season 1 Episode 8 – Rixty Minutes

Posted on


When Rick hooks up the family’s tv receiver with reality-tv shows from alternate dimensions and allows them to see themselves in different versions of their lives, they begin to wonder what they have, and more importantly – what could have been.


Morty: That, out there, that’s my grave.

Summer: Wait, what?

Morty: On one of our adventures, Rick and I basically destroyed the whole world, so we bailed on that reality and we came to this one, because in this one, the world wasn’t destroyed and in this one, we were dead. So we came here, a- a- and we buried ourselves and we took their place. And every morning, Summer, I eat breakfast twenty yards away from my own rotting corpse.

Summer: So you’re not my brother?

Morty: I’m better than your brother. I’m a version of your brother you can trust when he says “Don’t run.” Nobody exists on purpose, nobody belongs anywhere, everybody’s gonna die. Come watch TV.

Don Pardo: It’s “Saturday Night Live”! Starring a piece of toast, two guys with handlebar mustaches, a man painted silver who makes robot noises, Garmanarar, three s- eh- bl- um- uh- uh- uh- I’ll get back to that one, a hole in the wall where the men can see it all, and returning for his twenty-fifth consecutive year, Bobby Moynihan!

Rick: Interesting fun fact: uh, Moynihan and Piece of Toast hate each other. Apparently they’ve got some real creative differences,

Morty: Nobody exists on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. Everybody’s gonna die. Come watch T.V.

Rick: [after watching a new TV series] Pretty cool, huh Morty?

[realizes that Morty is gone and Jerry is sitting next to him]

Rick: Oh…

Jerry: I thought it was cool…

Rick: I don’t give a fuck what you think, Jerry!

Morty: Nobody exists on purpose, nobody belongs anywhere, everybody’s gonna die. Come watch TV.

Jerry: Give me a break. We’re not heroes for having unprotected sex on prom night.

Summer: [Speaking to Morty] You’re the little brother. You’re not the cause of your parents misery, you’re just a symptom of it.
