Give me your fav's, that you think everybody from your type can relate to...

here's a good one from the new series.

I have no doubt that you would be bored senseless by therapy. The same way I'm bored when I brush my teeth or wipe my ass, 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.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also Rick’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick’s existential catchphrase “Wubba Lubba Dub Dub,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon’s genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. ��

I don't think you have to be particularly smart. I think rick and morty is actually most unappreciated by middle of the road IQ's. dumb people like it, because of the gratuitous nature of the dialogue, explosions, and horrific gruesome deaths. There's fart jokes, drunk jokes, and existential life questioning horror mixed together.
