Added DiffLines:

** Soulbonds are explicitly analogous to sex for dragons, and Balthramont the dragon bonds with Rick, Morty, Summer and a horde of both male and female dragons throughout his episode.

Added DiffLines:

** When Morty joins a miniverse forrest tribe in "The Ricks Must Be Crazy", he's quickly terrified and infuriated by the tribe's rituals. The tribe lacks personal hygene and one of their rituals includes eating babies in order to make their fruit grow bigger. Morty is from a time where nature and science have been understood and Morty is well-adjusted to using [[TheInternetIsForPorn technology]] to [[ADateWithRosiePalms entertain himself]].


** Morty has had to disarm Rick's neutron bombs before. (In the first episode, Rick was going to destroy humanity. Comes in handy in the third season Recap/RickAndMortyS3E4Vindicators3TheReturnOfWorldEnder). Morty carries a set of wire clippers for just this purpose.

** However, this is later [[spoiler: [[TheBusCameBack reused]] in the episode Edge of Tomorty: Rick, Die, Repeat. Just because C-137 Rick considered Project Phoenix to be a failure, he isn't the only Rick to think of it and he seems to be the only Rick that considered it a failure. This becomes a plot point in the episode, as Rick BodySurfs through different dimensions, using the various backups.]]

* BodyBackupDrive: Rick attempts this in "Big Trouble in Little Sanchez". He deems the experiment a failure after this teenage body, dubbed Tiny Rick, compartmentalizes Rick's true personality, leaving only his hedonistic urges. After he returns to his old body, he dubs "Project Phoenix" a failure and proceeds to kill off the various clone bodies he made.

Added DiffLines:

*** However, the post-credits stinger shows the family visiting the "Hamster in Butts" dimension, where a hamster helpfully shows a diagram of the arrangement. The 'people' are in fact just empty puppets where the hamsters live. The people are like cars or houses, and do not seem to have separate identities.


** Dan Harmon, co-creator of the show, is on the autism spectrum and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Emo-OT3RzQc&feature=youtu.be has spoken before]] about how he tries to create positive representations for the autistic community with his characters. Both Rick and Morty (but especially Morty) display symptoms of autism - like stuttering or difficulties forming sentences, failing to pick up sarcasm, and only in Rick's case, lack of empathy. In "The Rickchurian Mortydate", in his usual cynical tone, Rick asks if ''VideoGame/MineCraft'' was made for autistic people, because he's starting to [[BaitAndSwitchComment enjoy playing it]].
