Rick and Morty on mountain in heist episode

Storyline

We’ve all seen the classic heist films with the classic plotline. There’s a crew, a mastermind, a chase to find some money or treasure, and of course double-crosses. Films like Ocean’s Eleven are among the most popular in this genre. Heist movies are not Rick’s cup of tea and he wants nothing to do with them. Rick and Morty put a crew together to get into Heist-Con including random characters like Glar, Angie Flint, and monster truck driver Truckula. After Rick dismisses them once they get into Heist-Con, Miles Knightly steals the crew only for Rick to double-cross him and have devices like Hesitotron and steal his own Heist-Con. Heistotron then double-crosses Rick, so he builds another robot named Randotron, who also double-crosses him.

Rick: “Good job Hesitotron. Go ahead and shut down.”

Heistotron: “Negative.”

Rick: “Excuse me?”
