Season 4 of Rick and Morty is giving us a brand new, deeper look into the mind of our favorite genius, Rick Sanchez. Throughout the run of the show, people have speculated about what's going on with the smartest man in the universe. Today, I have gathered all the data I need to really dissect his brain. I think we may all have judged Rick a little too fast... or did we?

  • Andrew

    I gotta hand it to you bro, I think that while you are able to analyze the content a WHOLE lot, you might be more right than you realize. Dan Harmon has been going thru quite allot of things in his personal life, going all the way back to the middle-end of season 1 so Im sure allot of that depression has found its way into the writing and/or direction of the show. Your analysis of Rick, Summers dynamic, Beths mother and the behaviors of Tony are all, (in my opinion), canonically and theoretically 100,000% spot on. You must be either a very skilled therapist, an ADHD/OCD-CIA level profiler or BOTH 😁👍🏻

    You seems to forget that when Tony mentioned his "dead wife", Rick found another dimension Tony to tell the truth and gets angry for using his wife as an excuse

    “There are no original ideas”... said while reviewing an episode of r&m which (in our real world) contains nothing but creative, new, original ideas. Did you not see the incredible irony in your analysis of rick’s original idea?

    Have y'all not realized that in the memory with the explosion that Rick's daughter also dies so there's no way it could be true

    • Mike Coxlong
      Mike Coxlong

      That’s true but he has infinite daughters and the young Beth that died could be his original daughter from his original timeline while the Beth we know is from a timeline where she never died. There is evidence that c-137 isn’t his original universe. Idk I’m stupid he did say it was fabricated but you can’t help but wonder.

    Idk if ur going to see this because of how old this video is, but I’ve found something of possible interest in the pocket Mortys game. There is a picture of a Morty in the ricks bathroom in the Morty games arena when u click A next to the picture a ghost rick appears and says, “I’ll never give up on you Morty, I know your out there.....” this was a little interesting to me. Possibly some small thing hinting towards evil Morty? It could be possible that evil mortys rick died at the hands of another rick and Morty ran away out of grief, living on his own he became hardened and grew major resentment towards all ricks... again idk if you’ll see this but it could be an interesting thing to look into.

    People who say Rick can’t be happy, *look at Pickle Rick.*

    • Danese

      Lmao, his downright acknowledgment of actively avoiding his deepest emotions and most painful and vulnerable emotional shatter points is the TRUE expression of "happiness!"

    • Andrew

      Rick was happy to have found a way to avoid going to the therapist and VERY happy/impressed with himself for being capable of turning himself into a pickle...but thats not true “happiness”. Its TRUE happiness that eludes Rick and his inability to set aside his own ego enough to even allow himself to show unconditional love to the people he does in fact “love” that causes him such emotional distress...which in & of itself is one of the things that makes the show so compelling.

    Isn’t Rick supposed to be the smartest being in the universe? Therefore wouldn’t he be capable of concocting an original idea? Or is it because the show is not written by the smartest beings in the universe that he’s written to be incapable of original thought? I think the show was created to be fun and funny and all the philosophizing sucks the soul out of it which is why Rick and Morty fans are some of the most pretentious and obnoxious people on the planet.
