At one point in time, Rick, Bird Person, and Squanchy were all united as more than just targets of the Galactic Federation... they played in a band together.

In the Season 2 episode "Get Schwifty," Bird Person takes Morty to his nest. While the fate of the world rests upon the musical talent of Rick, Morty, and Ice-T, a little more faith is put into their endeavor if you catch a glimpse of their band photo - 'The Flesh Curtains" - which shows off Bird Person taking over the lead vocals, Rick on the guitar, and Squanchy parading around on the drums.

Meeseeks Is Caught Hanging Out In An Arcade

Mr. Meeseeks was a very lovable and endearing character... until he met Jerry Smith. Meeting a foul and bloody, gun-filled end in the Season 1 episode “Meeseeks and Destroy,” Meeseeks disappeared into the interdimensional ether, never to be called upon again. However, in the second episode of Season 2, "Mortynight Run," Rick and Morty swing by the arcade Blips and Chitz to indulge in some interactive activities, where a Meeseeks can be seen lingering around, helping someone out with their space-game.

This particular Meeseeks poofs away once it's done assisting an alien comrade with an arcade game, but neither Rick or Morty seem to notice its presence. It's probably because they're too focused on playing the overly-realistic virtual reality game, Roy.

The Closing Image For Harmonious Claptrap Now Shows Dan Harmon Alone

In a less light-hearted Easter egg, the closing image for Dan Harmon's "Harmonious Claptrap" has switched to a vanity card that shows his post-divorce life. Seasons 1 and 2 of Rick and Morty include Harmon's personal closing logo, showing off a happy display of him and a family – consisting of his wife and animals.

Season 3's closing still now paints a picture of Dan's life alone, still with his animals, but surrounded by bottles of alcohol and trash instead of in a happy, colorful home with his wife. This new closing image follows his recent divorce with comedian Erin McGathy.

The House Damages Never Get Fully Repaired

Giving the show a bit of continuity, and reassuring viewers that the show's episodes aren't jumping from universe to universe, damages have been made to the house over time that just kind of... stay there. Across episodes, a couple of major damages link the house to its current reality – such as a hole in the roof that's been boarded up with some planks and a large crack in the pavement. 

In the final episode of Season 1, "Ricksy Business," a huge crack is made in the pavement, which can be seen later on in the Season 2 episode “Auto Erotic Assimilation," where an adamant Jerry is whacking away at some weeds.

In the Season 2 episode “Look Who’s Purging Now," Summer and Jerry blast a hole through the roof of the garage, which gets repaired, lazily, with some wooden planks that stay stagnant for the remainder of episodes.
