Rick and Morty Quotes That Will Blow Your Brains

This list of Rick and Morty quotes is packed with mind-boggling cynical lines from love and marriage to outright nihilism and everything in between.


Rick and Morty is one of the most amazing animated shows with quirky dialogues that I’ve seen in a very long time. So here we bring you the most loved Rick and Morty quotes of all seasons from The New DC Times. This list is packed with mind-boggling cynical quotes from love and marriage to outright nihilism and everything in between from Rick and Morty.

The mix of inter-dimensional adventures fused with domestic family drama bring a very fresh and lively tone to the series. Although American, the show is inspired by British television series The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Doctor Who.

Rick and Morty has been described as “a never-ending fart joke wrapped around a studied look into nihilism.” The chaotic nature of the Universe is expressed in the way the characters deal with cosmic infinity and existential mortality. Absurd as it sounds, Rick and Morty has since been nominated and won over more than 17 awards.

So, here is a list of the most thought-provoking Rick and Morty quotes of all time. Let us know your personal favorite quote in the comments section below. Or if we have missed out the one liner close to your heart, give us a shout and we will add it to the list.

1. Your anal cavity is still taut yet malleable

Rick: We’re gonna have to go through interdimensional customs. Sooo you’re gonna have to do me a real solid.
Morty: Uh oh.
Rick: When we get to customs, I’m gonna need you to take these seeds into the bathroom and I’m gonna need you to put ’em wayyyyy up inside your butthole.
Morty: My butt?
Rick: Put ’em wayyy up inside there, as far as they can go.
Morty: Oh jeez Rick. I really don’t want to have to do that.
Rick: Well, someone’s got to do it, Morty. These seeds aren’t gonna get through customs unless they are in someone’s rectum, Morty.
Morty: uhhh…
Rick: They’ll fall right out of mine. I’ve done this too many time, Morty. You’re young, you have your whole life ahead of you. And your anal cavity is still taut yet malleable. You gotta do it for grandpa, Morty. You gotta put these seeds inside your butt.
Morty: My butt?
Rick: Come on Morty. Please Morty. You have to do it, Morty.
Morty: Oh man…

2. Break the cycle, Rise above. Focus on science.

Rick: “Listen, Morty, I hate to break it to you but what people call “love” is just a chemical reaction that compels animals to breed. It hits hard, Morty, then it slowly fades, leaving you stranded in a failing marriage. I did it. Your parents are gonna do it. Break the cycle, Morty. Rise above. Focus on science”

3. He’s not a hot girl


4. School is a waste of time

Rick: Listen, Jerry, I don’t want to overstep my bounds or anything. It’s your house. It’s your world. You’re a real Julius Caesar, but I’ll tell you some, tell you how-how I feel about school, Jerry. It’s a waste of time, a bunch of people running around, bumping into each other.

G-guy up front says, “two plus two.” The people in the back say, “four.” Then the bell rings, and they give you a carton of milk and a piece of paper that says you can take a dump or something. I mean, it’s—it’s not a place for smart people, Jerry, and I know that’s not a popular opinion, but it’s my two cents on the issue.

5. 20 CCs of Liquid Dreamkiller

Rick: “I took your family”? Who do you think had taken more from them when you shot 20 CCs of liquid dreamkiller into my daughter? She was Rick’s daughter, Jerry! She had options! That all ended because she felt sorry for you.

You act like prey, but you’re a predator! You use pity to lure in your victims! That’s how you survive! I survive cause I know everything, that snake survives because children wander off, and you survive ‘cause people think, “Ooh, this poor piece of shit, he never gets a break! I can’t stand the deafening silent wails of his wilting soul! I guess I’ll hire him or marry him!”

6. Universe is an Animal

Beth: I feel like I’ve spent my life pretending you’re a great guy and trying to be like you. And the ugly truth has always been…
Rick: That I’m not that great a guy and you’re exactly like me.
Beth: Am I evil?
Rick: Worse, you’re smart. When you know nothing matters, the universe is yours. And I’ve never met a universe that was into it. The universe is basically an animal, it grazes on the ordinary. It creates infinite idiots, just to eat them. Kind of like your friend Timmy. You know smart people get a chance to climb on top and take reality for a ride but it’ll never stop trying to throw you. And eventually it will, there’s no other way off.

7. Nobody exists on purpose

Rick and Morty Quotes

Morty: That, out there, that’s my grave.
Summer: Wait, what?
Morty: On one of our adventures, Rick and I basically destroyed the whole world, so we bailed on that reality and we came to this one, because in this one, the world wasn’t destroyed, and in this one, we were dead. So we came here and we buried ourselves, and we took their place. And every morning, Summer, I eat breakfast 20 yards away from my own rotting corpse.
Summer: So you’re not my brother?
Morty: I’m better than your brother. I’m a version of your brother you can trust when he says “Don’t run.” Nobody exists on purpose, nobody belongs anywhere, everybody’s gonna die. Come watch TV.

8. Weddings are funerals with cake

9. Grandpa’s favorite

Rick: “All right, all right, cool it! I see what’s happening here. You’re both young, you’re both unsure about your place in the universe, and you both want to be Grandpa’s favorite. I can fix this. Morty, sit here. Summer, you sit here. Now, listen—I know the two of you are very different from each other in a lot of ways, but you have to understand that as far as Grandpa’s concerned, you’re both pieces of shit! Yeah. I can prove it mathematically. Actually, l-l-let me grab my whiteboard. This has been a long time coming, anyways.”

10. To live is to risk it all

Rick: Listen to your sister, Morty. To live is to risk it all, otherwise you’re just an inert chunk of randomly assembled molecules drifting wherever the universe blows you. Oh, I’m sorry, Jerry, I didn’t see you there, how much of that did you hear?”

11. Docking kind of love

12. Hitler cured cancer

Morty: Rick, what about the reality we left behind?
Rick: What about the reality where Hitler cured cancer? Just don’t think about it, Morty.

13. Shotgun is my penis

Rick and Morty Quotes

Jerry: “I wish that shotgun was my penis.”
Beth: “If it was, you could call me Ernest Hemingway.”

14. Best thing you can do for people

Mr. Meeseeks: Having a family doesn’t mean that you stop being an individual. You know the best thing you can do for the people that depend on you? Be honest with them, even if it means setting them free.

15. Meaning of Wubba Lubba Dub Dub

Birdperson: Morty, do you know what “wubba lubba dub dub” means?
Morty: Uh, that’s just Rick’s stupid nonsense catchphrase.
Birdperson: It’s not nonsense at all. In my people’s tongue it means, “I am in great pain, please help me.”

16. Eleven 9/11s

Rick: There’s pros and cons to [burps] every alternate timeline. Fun facts about this one: It’s got giant, telepathic spiders, eleven 9/11s, and the best ice cream in the multiverse!

17. Raised by all the bad words for Jews

Summer: What do you mean you’re having a party? Are some Glip-Glops from the third dimension going to come over and play cards or something?
Rick: “Glip Glop?” You’re lucky a Traflorkian doesn’t hear you say that.
Summer: Is that like their N-word?
Rick: It’s like the N-word and the C-word had a baby and it was raised by all the bad words for Jews.

18. Using intelligence to justify sickness

Dr. Wong: Rick, the only connection between your unquestionable intelligence and the sickness destroying your family is that everyone in your family, you included, use intelligence to justify sickness. You seem to alternate between viewing your own mind as an unstoppable force and as an inescapable curse. And I think it’s because the only truly unapproachable concept for you is that it’s your mind within your control. You chose to come here, you chose to talk to belittle my vocation, just as you chose to become a pickle.

You are the master of your universe, and yet you are dripping with rat blood and feces. Your enormous mind literally vegetating by your own hand. I have no doubt that you would be bored senseless by therapy, the same way I’m bored when I brush my teeth and wipe my ass.

Because the thing about repairing, maintaining, and cleaning is it’s not an adventure. There’s no way to do it so wrong you might die. It’s just work. And the bottom line is, some people are okay going to work, and some people … well, some people would rather die. Each of us gets to choose.”

19. They’re bureaucrats. I don’t respect them.

Child Morty Jr.: I mean, you know, I—I don’t want to shoot nobody.
Rick: They’re just robots, Morty! It’s OK to shoot them! They’re robots!
Guard #1: Aah! My leg is shot off!
Guard #2: Glenn’s bleeding to death!
Child Morty Jr.: Someone call his wife and children!
Child Morty Jr.: They’re not robots, Rick!
Rick: It’s a figure of speech, Morty. They’re bureaucrats. I don’t respect them.

20. Get your shit together

Morty [to Summer]: Well then get your shit together, get it all together, and put it in a backpack, all your shit, so it’s together.
And if you gotta take it somewhere, take it somewhere, you know. Take it to the shit store and sell it, or put it in the shit museum. I don’t care what you do, you just gotta get it together.
Get your shit together.

21. I’m a murderer that eats babies

Blim Blam: [speaks] Um, first of all, hello. Uh, my name is Blim Blam the Korblok. Second of all, cards on the table, I’m a murderer that eats babies, and I came to this planet to eat babies. However, I am also carrying a highly infectious disease that I suppose you could call “space AIDS” as you put it, and Rick did chain me up so that he could attempt to cure it. [Beth serves Jerry] At the same time, Rick’s motivation to cure my disease was not to save my life or anyone else’s, but to patent and sell the cure for billions of Blemflarcks.

[Jerry serves back] But you know the reason why I ripped my chains out of the wall? [confronts them] And do you know why I’m never coming back to this planet?! BECAUSE THE TWO OF YOU ARE THE FUCKING WORST! You both hate yourselves AND each other! And the idea that it has ANYTHING to do with Rick is laughable. I’d laugh but I’m biologically incapable. That’s how alien I am!

And even I’m sitting here listening to the two of you and being like, “WHAT THE FUCK!?!” So good luck with your shitty marriage, and tell Rick I’m sorry he has to deal with EITHER of you. Blim Blam OUT. [mic-drops the device and leaves, only to come back for the device] You know what? I’m taking this.
