The series largely focuses on the adventures of Rick, a genius old scientist with the likeness of Doc Brown from Back to the Future who lives with his daughter and her family, conducting madman-science from their garage.

Morty often serves as a reminder of mortality for Rick, and is his attachment to their lives as humans. Rick often imposes his nihilistic philosophies on his grandchildren because it is the safest way to live as a citizen of all the universes, that is to say: it is safer to be cautious and…
