YMMV: Basic Instructions
- Alternative Character Interpretation: In-Universe and on a species-wide level with Manatees.
- Love It or Hate It: Seems to be the reaction of Cracked's readers to the comic itself.
- Magnificent Bastard: Rick will pull off one hell of a Thanatos Gambit on Scott, naming him Executor of his Estate and counting on Shoot the Messenger to ensue.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Everything Rocket Hat does. Justified in that he only has one pose. (Well, eventually two, but the point stands.)
- The Woobie: Rick.
