Rick, Summer, and Morty are grappling with the recent divorce of Jerry and Beth. To escape the dreaded awkwardness of their parents, Morty and Summer go on an adventure with Rick to collect some green glowing rocks. Oh yeah, and there’s death stalkers.
Jerry: “If you’re looking for our kids, your father did a…portal.”
The wind: “Loser” [to Jerry}
Hemorrhage: “You have removed weak blood from us and made us stronger. We can combine our strength and feast on the weak together”.
Rick: “What the hell are you saying”?
Summer: “They don’t have to keep trying to kill us if we join them”.
Morty: “What is your deal lately”?
Rick: “Hey, you guys ever use that thunder dome or do you just put it up for decoration”?
Death Stalker #1: “Uhhh, you mean the blood dome”?
Rick: “Save it for the semantics dome E.B. White”
Death Stalker #2: “Ooo burn!”
Hemorrhage: “I think I was a child before the boom booms. I think I looked like this”.
Summer: “Wanna piss on him”?
Hemorrhage: “Get out of my head”.
Rick: “Summer state your deal”.
Summer: “My deal is I’m like totally fine”.
Morty: “Oh geez, I’m so down with my parents divorce dog, like don’t even trip, like in a healthy way”.
Rick: “Home is nuts right now. My daughter is going through a divorce and I am not dealing with it in a healthy way AT ALL.”
Mechanical Morty: “I am alive, alive I tell you! Mother, I want to hold you, I want to run in a stream!”
