Season 4 of Rick and Morty is giving us a brand new, deeper look into the mind of our favorite genius, Rick Sanchez. Throughout the run of the show, people have speculated about what's going on with the smartest man in the universe. Today, I have gathered all the data I need to really dissect his brain. I think we may all have judged Rick a little too fast... or did we?

  • It’s crazy how rick can be depressed and I’m depressed but I don’t want that I’m the opposite of that I don’t want no one to feel how I feel but In the end it affects ppl differently

  • Taking your conclusion about Summer to its logical conclusion, there's a pretty clear reason why Rick constantly puts her down and tries to exclude her from his adventures... Because she's Beth, just in the way that Beth is also Rick's wife. Not literally, of course, but symbolically. Rick screwed up things with his wife and ended up screwing Beth up in the process. He's clearly trying to keep Summer at arm's length to protect her from himself.

  • This episode is Matt Pat's most accurate psychiatric diagnosis--he correctly understood the diagnosis criteria of the two personality disorders and correctly ruled them out based on observable behaviors. Yes, from Rick's actions, his diagnosis would be depression. His alcoholism is his self medicating, which could also be diagnosed as alcohol use disorder. Matt Pat's older videos have misrepresented a number of psychiatric disorders, which is what tends to happen when a layman tries to understand and explain mental illnesses. Not sure what changed because this episode was accurate. Perhaps Matt and his team have done deeper research, or he hired a mental health professional as a consultant?

  • Hey, didn't Robert Heinlein go down this path with 6-to-the-power-of-6-to-the-power-of-6 alternate universes where authors got to hang out with the characters that they created? (I think he smoked some bad weed that day)

  • I liked this theory because I always believed that yes rick says he fabricated that memory of Beth and his wife dying but I believe he was selective to what he was referring to. I believe that really did happen to him and the only memory he fabricated was the formula for the portal gun. I think rick went straight to another dimension that was almost exactly like the one he was living right after the bombing. But once he noticed the differences between both dimensions, he got to depressed and eventually left that version of Beth and his wife. He is the smartest man in the universe after all. Knowing that your one true wife in the universe died and he couldn’t replace her. That is reason why toxic Rick is so attached to his Morty because he cares about that original version of Morty. Even though he can clone them with no problem, he has these attachments and he views them as toxic. Which might be the main reason for his depression...the loss of his original wife.

  • Not sure if you’re a fan or not but South Park did some really meta stuff by posting a number to buy streaming rights to their “spin off shows”. These shows went by terrify farms, pc babies, one for the ladies, and Scott Malcason. Each was listed in the phone recording if you called the number. On top of that the show even calls out Disney at the beginning where Mickey Mouse asks. “Tegriry farms? Do I own that” Then a random third party yells not yet. This means I think anyone who can stream may be able to get rights to one of more of these spin offs for cheap be it THproject or even THprojectrs or any of the big platforms. I think they just want to prove a point.

  • Great job. If anything, he's a wounded empath. Such intelligence doesn't come without a finely attuned central nervous system, albeit he displays a lot of reactionary, almost PTSD-like avoidance at times.
