    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?

            You just prove one of my theories, which is: Summer is more like Ric. I believe there may be a Citadel of Summers out there.

              He's smart enough to make a decent antidepressant, but my guess is he's too afraid it will change who he is. Or it's just convenient to the plot that he can't cure his depression.

                  At of all honesty, this video is real deep... some may think it’s over analyzed, because it’s a cartoon.. but how it was explained throughout in full detail, only AWAKE grown-ups, will understand, and relate to it. Great video..

Yes, you can't truly invent, but you can come up with untrue stories much further from your own than you're implying, MP. Do you think no one has ever written a story that had no resemblance to their life? What about people who have heard the stories of others, and plagiarize them, even though they don't relate on any level? How can you be sure Rick wasn't ripping off the plot of a book, movie, or even story from someone he encountered? It's absolutely ridiculous to suggest we can get anything meaningful out of that fake backstory.

Not over if the train could be on the ice, but if the maneuvers the engineer used to turn around the train and line up with the tracks.
