Rick And Morty's 21 Most Depressingly Nihilistic Quotes

Rick and Morty is peculiar for the witty and sarcastic way it addresses everyday life. Here are some of the most depressingly nihilistic quotes from the series.

Rick and Morty is a Sci-fi animated sitcom created by comedian Justin Roland –known for voicing the Earl of Lemongrab on Adventure Time– and writer Dan Harmon, creator of the sitcom Community. The plot centers on the misadventures of a 14-year old boy named Morty, and his genius alcoholic grandfather, Rick. As they travel through space and different dimensions, they encounter monsters of all sorts: aliens, parasites, giant bugs, and anything else you can imagine.

The main peculiarity of this show is that it manages to make philosophical statements while retaining humor. It's point of view ranges from nihilism to existentialism and explores the darkest dilemmas that scourge the human condition. This blend of humor with dark psychological undertones makes this series very relatable for the millennial generation. We are a generation aware of the absurdity of our existence and the senseless possibilities of our bleak future. We use sarcasm to laugh things off. We are also aware that we live in a never-ending cycle of consumerism, where we fill our minds with meaningless illusions of entertainment that ultimately leave us empty and indifferent.

Rick and Morty is different from other cartoons that have existed because of the witty and sarcastic way it addresses everyday life. For these reason, we've decided to pay homage to the series by making this list of the best morose and nihilistic quotes of the show, which are also extraordinarily clever.

"I'm a version of your brother you can trust when he says "Don't run." Nobody exists on purpose, nobody belongs anywhere, everybody's gonna die. Come watch TV."

"Listen, Morty, I hate to break it to you but what people call ‘love’ is just a chemical reaction that compels animals to breed. It hits hard, Morty, then it slowly fades, leaving you stranded in a failing marriage. I did it. Your parents are gonna do it. Break the cycle, Morty. Rise above. Focus on science." 

"All right, all right, cool it! I see what's happening here. You're both young, you're both unsure about your place in the universe, and you both want to be Grandpa's favorite. I can fix this. Morty, sit here. Summer, you sit here. Now, listen—I know the two of you are very different from each other in a lot of ways, but you have to understand that as far as Grandpa's concerned, you're both pieces of shit! Yeah. I can prove it mathematically. Actually, l-l-let me grab my whiteboard. This has been a long time coming, anyways."
"Okay, well, sometimes, science is more art than science, Morty. A lot of people don't get that."

"I'll tell you how I feel about school, Jerry: it's a waste of time. Bunch of people runnin' around bumpin' into each other, got a guy up front says, '2 + 2,' and the people in the back say, '4.' Then the bell rings and they give you a carton of milk and a piece of paper that says you can go take a dump or somethin'. I mean, it's not a place for smart people, Jerry. I know that's not a popular opinion, but that's my two cents on the issue."

"I wish that shotgun was my penis."
"If it were, you could call me Ernest Hemingway."
"I don't get it and I don't need to."
