Rick is basically a more sardonic, cynical version of Abed
. Abed worked because he could convincingly lean on the fourth wall and point out everything the viewer is already thinking about the story in progress. Rick can do it the same way but for different justifications.
-> Robot: What is my purpose?
Rick: You pass the butter
Robot: Oh god.
Rick: Yeah, welcome to the club.
-> Rick: I'm not trying to disparage the differently abled. I'm just stating as a fact that looking into this microscope would have made me mentally retarded.
Morty: I don't think it's about logic, Rick. I think the word has become a power symbol for groups with good intentions.
Rick: Well, that's retarded.
That and when Rick and the devil got into their slap fight.
Does the quote markup not work here?
