Rick and Beth in Froopyland

Storyline

A childhood friend of Beth’s, Tommy was presumably eaten by his own dad. The news is covering the execution of Tommy’s dad, and Beth begins to suspect Tommy was left in her magical getaway “Froopyland“. Rick takes her back to Froopyland where they discover a much darker result of Tommy being left in the magic land for so many years.

Quotes

Rick: “Here it is. You know, I collapsed a quantum tesseract to –“

Beth: “Dad, I don’t care how you made it. I want to know if Tommy’s still in there!”

Rick: “Relax, Beth. If he is, we’ll find him. He’ll be the only sun-bleached skeleton with non-imaginary DNA.”

Rick: “A dad makes a toilet look like R2-D2, and it breaks the front page of Reddit, but I’m Charles Manson because I gave you your own world instead of an iPad.

Rick: “All right, that’s it. I’m outta here.”

Beth: “What are you doing? We’re in the middle of an adventure.”

Rick: “Here’s some things an adventure needs, Beth. Conflict, stakes, a way for me to benefit, and, clearly, Morty.”

Rick: “I didn’t make Froopyland to get rid of you, Beth. I did it to protect the neighborhood. Not in a [burps] noble sense. It was just more practical to sequester you before I had to start, you know, cloning a replacement for every less-than-polite little boy or gullible animal that might cross your socio-path.”

Beth: “You would rather believe I’m evil than admit that you were a bad father?”

Rick: “Oh, dude, no. No, bad father all the way to the max over here. I’m a nutcase. And the acorn plopped straight down, baby. Look at some of this shit you were asking me to make you as a kid. Ray guns. A whip that forces people to like you. Invisibility cuffs, a parent trap, a lightning gun, a teddy bear with anatomically correct innards, night-vision googly-eye glasses, sound-erasing sneakers, false fingerprints, fall-asleep darts, a lie-detecting doll, an indestructible baseball bat, a Taser shaped like a ladybug, a fake police badge, location-tracking stickers, rainbow-colored duct tape, mind-control hair clips,
poison gum, a pink, sentient switchblade.”

Morty: “No, Dad! You’re not doing it right!”

Jerry: “Cutting off their heads isn’t doing it right?”

Morty: “They’re clearly regenerative! I-I think you have to stab them through the heart or something.

Summer: “You think or you know? I thought you were the alien expert, Isaac Asi-hole.”

Morty: “Don’t snap at me! I’m tired!”

Jerry: “We’re all tired!”
