Added DiffLines:

*** "Lawnmower Dog" is episode 2 in the series, "Something Ricked This Way Comes" is episode 9. My point? "Rick Potion #9" occurs between those two episodes, ending with Rick and Morty leaving the dimension in which Snuffles/Snowball gained higher thinking and transported dogs off-world.

Added DiffLines:

** It could be that there's a requirement that Ricks have to work in order to be allowed to live in the Citadel (maybe not a bad idea considering that our unemployed Rick spends a lot of his time getting drunk and building world ending Neutrino Bombs). There aren't enough intellectually challenging jobs around (and even though jobs like President might be considered intellectually challenging for most people, they're going to quickly bore a Rick anyway) so the Citadel can only provide enough jobs for Ricks by requiring them to undertake other types of jobs. Even if a Rick could easily automate their menial job (and even non-menial jobs) if it ultimately meant they lost the job and have to leave the Citadel then they probably wouldn't.


* In The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy why does giant Summer's voice become masculine? In other shows, when a character gets huge and the body proportions remain the same their voices remain the same as well, unless it's a short joke. There are real life women with gigantism annd manly voices, but their body proportions are different from most women. Also, Summer didn't have any trouble moving, if gravity wasn't affecting her movements it shouldn't affect her vocal cords either.

* In The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy why does giant Summer's voice become masculine? In other shows, when a character gets huge and the body proportions remain the same their voices remain the same as well, well (besides becoming louder), unless it's a short joke. There are real life women with gigantism annd and manly voices, but their body proportions including their vocal boxes are different from most women. Also, Summer didn't have any trouble moving, if gravity wasn't affecting her movements it shouldn't affect her vocal cords either.

Added DiffLines:

** Mr. Meeseeks responds to a command with "can do!". Maybe that's a signal that the command is one that his programming will allow him to accept. I suspect that he may be programmed to only accept assignments that he can achieve in a short time, a couple of days at most. The trouble starts when he accepts an assignment that takes longer than he thought.

Added DiffLines:

** Rick is aware that he is on a TV show. He does things, like inventing catch phrases, to make the show more popular, because cancellation would be like death for him. He can't afford to let the jokes become too corny.

Added DiffLines:

** Ask [[ComicBook/SquirrelGirl Doctor Doom]].

Added DiffLines:

** Rick has also spent time in dimensions where time moves differently. In the pilot, Morty broke his legs, Rick left and came back in a few seconds from Morty/our perspectives, but then says he's been gone for months in the dimension where he got the 'unbreak legs' cure.

Added DiffLines:

** It's probably that Rick designed the whole thing for Morty, but realised afterwards that he'd never live it down, so he recorded the Noob Noob speech to avoid admitting it. Adding weight to that, everything else in the episode is filmed in the lab area, but the Noob Noob speech is filmed in a cave, implying that it was hurriedly done after the fact.

Added DiffLines:

** There is a scientific explanation: If everything native to the planet is on a cob down to the molecular level, that means that those molecules aren't compatible with the human body. Oxygen molecules could bond to the molecules in the lungs, but wouldn't be able to be processed, in much the same way that carbon monoxide kills people. The same issue would be present with cobbed food molecules.

Added DiffLines:

** I would say no, since humans are technically made of up millions of asexual cells, yet the collective product is male or female. No matter what he's composed of, the collective result is apparently male.

Added DiffLines:

*** They fail and go insane. They're not gods, just somewhat superhumanly competent and utterly dedicated.


* In the pilot, how exactly do Beth and Jerry intend to enforce their decision to send Rick to an old folks home if they had not changed their minds? Talk about mugging the monster. That would be more like mugging Godzilla.

* In The Wedding Squanchers, why not just build two homes on the screaming sun world, and live on the dark side? They've got a ship, so they can travel to the dark side every 42 hours, after all.

** To paraphrase Agent K, ''A'' Rick is smart. Ricks are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals.
