Top 10 'Rick And Morty' Episodes

Top 10 'Rick And Morty' Episodes

Grab your portal guns and Szechwan sauce and let's get Schwifty.

Rick and Morty is a beloved show on Adult Swim surrounding the adventures of crazy mad scientist, Rick Sanchez, and his timid grandson, Morty. It's full of Sci-Fi fun, it's awesome, so I decided to make a list of the top ten Rick and Morty Episodes. (Rick and Morty is available for streaming on Hulu and

10. Meeseeks and Destroy

We get the introduction of everyone’s favorite blue helpers, the Meeseeks, and Morty gets to choose the adventure! The situations are funny- including Rick and Morty going to giant prison and the Meeseeks struggle to help Jerry. It’s definitely a good one.

Best Moment- When the Meeseeks hold a restaurant hostage so they can help Jerry.

9. Ricksy Business

When Jerry and Beth are out of town (on a Titanic themed cruise- mind you) Rick and Summer decide to throw their own parties, all while Morty tries to keep things under control. We get a crazy party, with both Summer’s Earth friends and Rick’s intergalactic friends in attendance. We even get the first appearance of Squancy and Birdperson!

Best Moment- Rick’s cosmic-drug infused “Rick Dance”.

8. The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy

This is a Rick and Jerry episode!!!! Rick and Jerry adventure!!!! Anyway, as a favor to Morty, Rick takes a depressed Jerry on a pity adventure to an alien resort covered in an immortality field. But things get complicated when some alien thugs make Jerry an offer he can’t refuse.

Best Moment- When Rick drags Jerry out of his dank apartment for an adventure.

7. Pickle Rick

Few episodes are as iconic as the one where Rick turns himself into a pickle. Although he originally just turned himself into a pickle to avoid therapy, Rick finds himself becoming a full-on action hero, while still being a pickle. The side story sees the Smith family (minus Jerry) at therapy, and that can be really funny, and even surreal, too.

Best Moment- When Pickle Rick and Jaguar team up.

6. Rixty Minutes/ Interdimensional Cable 2- Tempting Fate

I couldn’t choose between the two episode featuring the interdimensional cable box. They both deal with Rick and Morty viewing crazy programs from across the multiverse. Both are funny, have interesting side plots and most importantly, both showcase a variety of improvised programs from across the multiverse.

Best Moments: When the Smith Family visit the Hamsters that live in Butts world (Rixty Minutes) The demonstration on how Plumbuses are made. (Interdimensional Cable 2- Tempting Fate)

5. Get Schwifty

When giant alien heads appear in the sky and demand that Earth give them a hit song, Rick and Morty are on the case. The song “Get Schwifty” itself is hilarious, as is the fact that Rick thinks he’s a musician, even working with Ice-T. The subplot which deals with the people of Rick and Morty’s town starting a religion based of the heads, is also really smart and offers up some good social commentary. AW YEAH.

Best Moment: The performance of the titular song.

4. Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind

We get the first appearance of the Citadel of Ricks, and it’s just as amazing as you’d think. The council of Ricks accuses Rick of crimes against alternate Ricks. Rick and Morty go on an adventure to find out who’s been killing Ricks. The subplot also sees Jerry become close with an alternate Rick and it’s surprisingly touching. (Also look out for the Gravity Falls reference in this episode!)

Best Moment: When Morty becomes the One True Morty and sparks the Morty uprising against Evil Rick.

3. The Ricklantis Mixup

This is a sometimes dark, often funny, story from the Citadel of Ricks and Mortys. The story follows: a pair of cops, a group of Morty school boys in a parody of Stand By Me, a factory being held hostage, and a crooked election. There’s a lot of drama and darker themes in this episode and that’s what makes it great.

Best Moment: When President Morty takes out the disobedient Ricks in his cabinet.

2. Mortynight Run

Morty is understandably upset when Rick sells weapons to an assassin to fund a trip to intergalactic arcade Blips and Chitz. In an act of self-righteousness, Rick goes to save the target of the assassin Rick sold a gun to. And from there a transdimensional adventure with high stakes begins. The sub plot is also one of the best in the show’s history, in which Jerry is dropped off at a daycare center for alternate Jerrys.

Best Moment: When Jerry first is dropped off at Jerry daycare.

1. Total Rickall

Where do I even begin with this one? When the Smith household becomes infested with parasites that spread through memories, the family must decipher who is real and who’s not to avoid the parasites leaving the house and taking over Earth. The episode features clever cut-away jokes on par with the likes of Family Guy, and also introduces hilarious one time characters including: Sleepy Gary, Tinkles, and Pencilvester. Not to mention, this was the first appearance of the beloved Mr. Poopybutthole. With jokes flying ninety miles and minute and most of them hitting bullseyes, what can I say but OOH WEE!

Best Moment: The montage of Rick’s made-up sounding catchphrases.

18 Times Kate Middleton Was Actually All Of Us In College, Beside The Princess Thing

Every girl has to go through her clueless college stage before she reaches Duchess status.

Kate Middleton is basically a household name by now, and how could this not be the case when she has the gorgeous hair, kind smile, and incredible fashion sense. With her constantly in the spotlight looking so put together, we sometimes forget that the Duchess was actually all of us in college!

Here are 18 times that Kate proved she was just like all of us.

1. Going all out in the name of school spirit

There is nothing like breaking out the war paint and screaming for your home team. Like Kate, we all love to get a little messy and make some memories with our friends.

2. Hanging out with the roomies

Some people may not get lucky in this area but for those who are best friends with their roommates, they understand the love. It's a dream come true for everyone who has always wanted to live with their best friends. It's like a sleepover that never ends.

3. Dressing up cute on the first day of school...

You got to make a good first impression on your way to school. Whether it's during your 7 A.M or 4 P.M., it's always best to dress to impress.

4. ...and wearing yoga pants for the rest of the year

And this goes all the way until the last week of school when you don't bother getting out of bed to wear pants at all.

5. Going grocery shopping and throwing in cookies, ice-cream, and every type of Pringles because your mom isn't there to say no

You'll probably regret that in a few months when the Freshman Fifteen kicks in.

6. Walking for miles from your car to your dorm carrying groceries

We can't park by the apartment for a solid five minutes to carry our groceries up to the kitchen or we will risk a ticket, but we can walk a few miles carrying food that gets heavier, and heavier, and heavier with every step.

7. Going out for a night on the town on a Friday night

Dancing, laughter, and fun? Everyone in college has been to a party or two. It's a classic part of the college experience. Sometimes you just need a distraction from all the essays and tests.

8. Being so late to class you threw on whatever your hands grabbed next

We've all been there. Our alarm doesn't go off, we press snooze a few too many times, or forget to even set an alarm and next thing you know we are running around the dorm room like Taz from Looney Toons. You throw on whatever, then run to class.

Unfortunately 9/10 times our outfits don't turn out. Although, Kate can certainly pull off this look, no matter how mismatched.

9. Pretending your walking to the same building as the cute boy you met so you have the excuse to keep talking to him

I am very guilty of doing this. Although I missed my class, at least I got to talk to the really cute boy who has class at 9:45 in the STEM building. It was worth it.

10. Sitting on the floor or standing because you're a poor college student who can't afford chairs or tables

Eating on the floor? Always. Being a college kid is tough and sometimes you have to sacrifice some things to obtain the others. Such as choosing chocolate milk and Halo Top over vegetables and hair conditioner.

Judging by Kate's beautiful locks, she chose the conditioner.

Probably the vegetables too.

We should just all follow her example.

11. Going on cute date with the boy you followed to class-turned-boyfriend

Now my short-lived romance may not have extended farther than us talking and walking to his class, but Kate and William obviously had a better ending. Nevertheless, college is the place to grow and date and possibly find the one.

12. Keeping your hair long and growing because you can't afford to get it cut

Don't trust your roommate. No matter how many times she begs you to let her cut it. Don't.

13. Turning 21 and getting dressed up and going out with your best friends

While this one probably doesn't apply to Kate, since you can drink at age 18 in most countries, all my people in the United States know the sweet freedom of turning 21. It's an iconic time in a students life and marks a huge milestone as well.

14. Passing out flyers for some type of movement or protest

Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger - which is why college is the time to stand up for what you believe in. May that be RedforEd, Planned Parenthood, anti-Abortion, Trump, the Wall, pizza bagels, it's all an exercise of the first amendment.

15. Ranting to your friends about the professor that just "doesn't understand you"

You know your thinking about that professor right now as you read this. And you know that that's your reaction whenever they give you a bad grade or say something you disagree with at the tiniest degree.

16. Getting glammed-up for those senior photos

Pick out your best outfit and make sure it's a good hair day because everyone will be viewing these photos forever... and in Kate's place that is more than true. Luckily she looks as gorgeous as ever. Does she ever have a bad hair day?

17. Walking out of your last class knowing you'll never have to write a single paper again

And purposefully not thinking about how you will be going into the real world in less than a few days.

18. When you've graduated and realized you have no idea what you're going to do with your life

Maybe a prince will be right around the corner to sweep you off your feet so you won't have to figure your life out.

The Football World Loses One Of Its Finest Players

Bart Starr passed away and NFL players, coaches, and fans all mourn the loss of the Packer legend, but his life and career will live on in hearts of Packer nation forever.


Bart Starr passed away at the age of 85 in Birmingham, Alabama. The NFL lost a great player. The Green Bay Packers lost a hero. And, the world lost a true gentleman. Starr's legacy has surpassed his accomplishments on the gridiron. He inspired not only his peers but the generations that have come after him. He is — and always — will be remembered as a Hall of Famer, a champion, and a Packer.

Bart Starr was a Packers legend. Starr led Green Bay to six division titles and five world championships. As the quarterback of Vince Lombardi's offense, he kept the machine going and executed the plays like no other. His mastery of the position was a large part of the Packers success in the 1960s. Starr was also the perfect teammate for the perfect team. His leadership put him in command of the Packers. Starr's time in Green Bay will not be forgotten by former players, coaches, and the fans.

Bart Starr's resume is rivaled by few in NFL history. He played in 10 postseason games and won 9 of them. He led the Packers to victory in Super Bowls I and II and won the MVP award in both games. He was the MVP of the league in 1966 and was named to the NFL All-Decade Team of the 1960s. The Packers retired his number 15 and Starr has been inducted into the Packers and Pro Football Hall of Fame.

After his playing days, Starr would become the head coach of the Packers. He could not repeat the success he had on the field from the 1960s teams. His coaching years do not take away from his legacy as one of the all-time great Packers. Starr was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977.

One of Starr's last visits to Lambeau field was on a cold November night in 2015. Starr and his wife attended a ceremony in which the Packers retired Brett Favre's jersey number. Starr was the perfect personification of what it meant to be a Packer. His most heroic moment came in the 1967 NFL Championship Game. The Ice Bowl came down to a third and goal in Lambeau Field's south endzone against the Dallas Cowboys. Starr came to the sidelines and bravely told Vince Lombardi that he can sneak it in for a game-winning touchdown. Lombardi then replied, "Run it, and let's get the hell out of here." Starr ran a quarterback sneak for the game-winner and the Packers were off to Super Bowl II. Without Starr, Green Bay would not have won a second straight Super Bowl. His leadership in big game moments will live with Packers fans for a lifetime.

Vince Lombardi: A Football Life - The Ice Bowl

Starr leaves behind his wife Cherry, his son, and three granddaughters. Packers fans will have a tight grip on the memories Bart Starr and the 60s teams created. Starr left behind a template for being a Green Bay Packer. He also left a template for being a good man and a gentleman of the game of football. He was a competitor and a leader. Packer nation mourns for the loss of one of the finest human beings the game has seen.
