I laughed so much watching this one! We see the family becoming dependent on Rick. Beth wants him to fix the dishwasher, Summer wants help with homework and Jerry wants a device to open a jar.
And while Rick attempts to “help the family” Morty’s mocking him. Rick takes the upper hand, gives the fam the Meeseeks box and he’s actually just ditching them to prove a point – Morty’s adventures are gonna suck.
Rick is very competitive in all spheres of his life, so God forbid Morty gets to win! But that’s better than staying at home, dealing with mediocre things.
During their adventure, Morty gets attacked by an alien wanting to rape him. Here we see how far Rick is willing to go in order to both make Morty feel better and avenging him. He kills the alien wanting to get Morty without even thinking.
This is also the episode where he breaks the fourth wall for the first time with his famous “Wubba lubba dub dub” saying.
