Trivia

While escaping the ship, approximately fifteen minutes in, Rick, Morty and Jerry run past a Plutonian; one of the inhabitants of the planet Pluto that would later be featured in the episode 'Something Ricked This Way Comes'. See more »

Goofs

Rick tells simulated Morty that the formula for concentrated dark matter is two parts plutonic quarks (pink) and one part cesium (green), but when the aliens attempt to make some for themselves the two chemicals' containers are swapped, reversing the quantities for those compounds, thus incorrectly replicating Rick's recipe.

So what if the best episode was a simulation operating at minimum capacity?
20 September 2017 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

This episode was an excellent roller-coaster, seeing Rick in a beaten situation, then getting the upper hand... only to get down again... to emergent triumphant... then fail again... but manage to recuperate... only to be defeated by Prince Nebulon... but having the final laugh anyway.

Even though Morty is also a part of the adventure (or is he?), it is Jerry, who steals the show, as the complete opposite of Rick. Completely unaware of his surroundings, he embraces the simulation, and lives the best day of his life. It gives room to some interesting philosophical questions, like how your mind tries to bend reality to its own needs, and how true "cogito ergo sum" is. But all is ending up in laughter, as you hear Rick's closing lines, and the ending song. Odds are you'll search for Baker street to listen it one more time!
