Quotes

Morty: “Are you invisible and you’re gonna fart on me or something?”

Rick: “Flip the pickle over.”

Morty: “What? I’m gonna touch it and you’re gonna say it’s an alien dick or something.”

Rick: “Come on, flip the pickle Morty, you’re not gonna regret it, the pay off is huge!”

Rick: “I turned myself into a pickle Morty. Boom big reveal! I’m a pickle!”

Rick: “I’M PICKLE RICK!!!”

Morty: “I’m just trying to figure out why would you do this? Why would anyone do this?”

Rick: “The reason anyone would do this if they could, which they can’t, would be because they could, which they can’t.”

Rick: “I don’t do magic Morty, I do science.”

Rick: “This can’t really be the way I go out. This is the mega-genius equivalent of dying on the toilet.”

Mr. Goldenfold: “You’re patients of Dr. Wong too? How long have you all been eating poop?”

Summer: “We have never…eaten…..poop.”

Mr: Goldenfold: “Me neither…say where did my family get off to?”

Dr. Wong: “You are the master of your universe [Rick], and yet you are dripping with rat blood and feces. Your enormous mind literally vegetating by your own hand. I have no doubt that you would be bored senseless by therapy, the same way I’m bored when I brush my teeth and wipe my ass.”
