List RulesList includes the best quotes from Rick and Morty season 2, as well as the first season.

Easily one of the best animated shows on TV, Adult Swim's Rick and Morty is chock full of amazing quotes that are both hilarious and thought provoking. Created by Justin Roiland and Community's Dan Harmon, Rick and Morty is fresh, visually stimulating, and downright hilarious. This list showcases some of Rick and Morty's best one liners so far, although many are spoken by Rick since he steals the show almost every episode. Rick's catchphrases are loved by his fans! 

Sometimes, Rick & Morty quotes illustrate just how deeply philosophical the show is willing to go. Other times, snippets of dialogue provide evidence for solid Rick and Morty fan theories.

In a time where Adult Swim is straying away from animated content and producing more and more live action content, R&M is a very good sign that the network hasn't completely abandoned hope for cartoons. If you've seen every episode, try watching more shows like Rick and Morty. From funny Morty lines to top Pickle Rick quotes, vote up the best Rick and Morty quotes and phrases below.

    Rick's View on Love

    Rick: Listen, Morty, I hate to break it to you but what people call "love" is just a chemical reaction that compels animals to breed. It hits hard, Morty, then it slowly fades, leaving you stranded in a failing marriage. I did it. Your parents are gonna do it. Break the cycle, Morty. Rise above. Focus on science

    Would Rather Die

    Dr. Wong: Why didn't you want to come here?

    Pickle Rick: Because I don't respect therapy. Because I'm a scientist. Because I invent, transform, create, and destroy for a living, and when I don't like something about the world, I change it. And I don't think going to a rented office in a strip mall to listen to some agent of averageness explain which words mean which feelings has ever helped anyone do anything. I think it's helped a lot of people get comfortable and stop panicking, which is a state of mind [belch] we value in the animals we eat, but not something I want for myself. I'm not a cow. I'm a pickle. When I feel like it. So... you asked.

    Dr. Wong: Rick, the only connection between your unquestionable intelligence and the sickness destroying your family is that everyone in your family, you included, use intelligence to justify sickness. You seem to alternate between viewing your own mind as an unstoppable force and as an inescapable curse. And I think it's because the only truly unapproachable concept for you is that it's your mind within your control. You chose to come here, you chose to talk to belittle my vocation, just as you chose to become a pickle. You are the master of your universe - and yet you are dripping with rat blood and feces, your enormous mind literally vegetating by your own hand. I have no doubt that you would be bored senseless by therapy, the same way I'm bored when I brush my teeth and wipe my a**. Because the thing about repairing, maintaining, and cleaning is it's not an adventure. There's no way to do it so wrong you might die. It's just work. And the bottom line is, some people are okay going to work, and some people... well, some people would rather die. Each of us gets to choose.
