On this adventure, Rick and Morty find themselves on an alien planet. This alien planet is not advanced like you’d probably imagine. These aliens live for at most ten minutes before they lay an egg and immediately die. Summer takes the alien race out of the caves and coins the term “Glory to Glorzo”. The aliens are also parasites whose way of life is based around them latching on to others and taking over their bodies.
Morty:” What are…What are these things?!”
Rick: “Do I look like I know? Last thing I remember, I was, ugh, in a cave looking at some wet egg and…Oh that probably did it.”
Morty: “I told you not to look at that egg! It was too wet!”
Rick: “You don’t get to tell me what to look at.”
Summer: “What the [explicit] took you so long? You left me here.”
Morty: “We didn’t know you were with us.”
Summer: “Do you know how much [explicit] I’ve had to deal with?
Rick: “You’re in a cape, Summer. How bad could it be? No bad story ends with a cape.”
Summer: “You don’t know anything about my story.”
Summer: “Wait, so , all you do is live half an hour, [explicit] eggs, and die?”
Glorzoian: “Yes, we love it. I’ll do it right now.”
