Genre: Television, Cartoons
Who said it?: Rick Sanchez
The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from Cartoon Network’s Rick and Morty, which is aired during their late night programming schedule called Adult Swim. The show was created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland and follows the sci-fi misadventures of the nihilistic and cynical drunkard Rick Sanchez and his rather paranoid and nervous grandson Morty Smith (both voiced by Justin Roiland). The show has become a huge hit due to its dark humor and creativity.
The quote comes from the episode “Morty’s Mind Blowers,” the 8th episode of the 3rd season. The episode deals with both Rick and Morty (voiced by Justin Roiland) trying to recover their memories. The duo are locked in a vault that has stored most of their memories they wished to forget (or, in some instances, were forced to forget). One of the “memories” has Morty trying to put up a shelf but Rick disparages Morty because he was using an ordinary level. Rick then creates a platform that is “true level” and Morty, as he steps into it, is so enraptured by the feeling. This is when Rick delivers the quote.
