Question Description

Watch one episode of Rick and Morty. Season 3 episode 1 might be a good one, since the video "philosophy of szechuan sauce" covers this episode and may be helpful to your answer.

  • Name any and all nihilistic or absurd lines, ideas, and themes present in what you saw of Rick and Morty.
