Quotes

The President: “Here’s the adventure. Some kind of alien…googa has infested the Kennedy Sex Tunnels. I want it hunted down and taken out.”

Morty: “Kennedy Sex Tunnels?”

The President: “Naturally, you’ll forget you saw them, along with, in order of national embarrassment, the Truman Cocaine Lounge, the McKinley Hooker Dump, and the Lincoln Slave Coliseum. He didn’t free them all. And let me know when you’re done.”

Morty: “Maybe then we could get a selfie?”

The President: “Too busy. Now tell me more about this summit. Is this a peace one or a regular one?”

Madam Presidentress: “I am Presidentress of the Mega Gargantuans. We named ourselves before learning we were small.”

The President: “Madam Presidentress, I’m President of America, which is basically the world, but you didn’t hear that from me. – I’ve come to…

Madam Presidentress: “- I know who you are. We’ve already agreed to a ceasefire with your ambassadors, Rick and Morty.

The President: “Rick and Morty were here?”

Madam Presidentress: “Of course they were here. They can shrink instantly and teleport. They told me to give you this. They said it will stretch as your cancer pill wears off and your body awkwardly enlarges at the rate of a ’50s movie.”

The President: “Are there pants?”

Madam Presidentress: “They said you’d prefer just a shirt. Apparently, you have a need to swing your dick around?”
