The story behind the quote: With a new season of Rick and Morty on the horizon, it seems like a good idea to put up one of the quotes from this hit Cartoon Network/Adult Swim show.
The quote actually pops up in the very first episode of the first season of the show. While being chased by intergalactic customs, Morty Smith inhales a gas which makes him cough up a living being that quickly goes from infancy to old age before dying. Rick Sanchez quickly tells Morty the quote.
The quote is then given once again in the episode Rick Potion No. 9. After escaping their reality where everyone has turned into “Cronenbergs” and replacing their doppelgangers in a different universe, Morty is horrified that they’re not doing anything to fix their world. Rick then asks him about the universe where Hitler cures cancer. Then he gives the quote.
Geek wisdom: The world and the universe is incredibly complicated and full of unknowns. You might want to dwell on your mistakes or what-could-have-been. But it’s much better to focus on what’s happening now and not think about the other possibilities.
