Quotes

Morty: “You asked me to cut class and fight robots with you. I said, ‘no.’ You said, ‘millions of lives depend on it.’ I said, ‘I’ll do it for a dragon.’ you said, ‘whatever.’ I want my dragon.”

Rick: “You know who’s into dragons, Morty? Nerds that refuse to admit they’re Christian.”

Summer: “Oh, my god, it’s my first gay wedding.”

Morty: “Summer!”

Jerry: Hoo, those were not cheap tickets, but, um, I’m down to clown. Uh, w-w-w-why can you talk again, uh?

Talking Cat: “It’s not important, Jerry.”

Jerry: “Okay, but why Florida?”

Talking Cat: “Because they don’t ask questions. They play volleyball, they party, and they have fun.

The Wizard: “Balthromaw, by soul-bonding with multiple riders, you have violated the treaty between dragon and mankind. The dragonarchy sentences you to hang by the neck until dead. On the count of three. One dragonarchy, two dragonarchy, 2 1/2 — I just wanted to make sure — three!

Rick: “How about finding the spell that unbinds me from your [bleep] dragon?

Debranavox: “No spells can do that. Only the wizard can unbind a soul bond.
