- Lampshading Summer's sexuality with 'wow, this makes her character so much more interesting now'

I thought the frolf bro was saying that in response to Summer saying she saved the woman from being trafficked and burned alive.

But I may be giving them too much credit.

Rick said it was sentient cake.

Okay. Apparently the episode is listed on Amazon now, but with a notice that they'll e-mail when it's available.

Odd! I don't know if I've had that happen before for an episode that should already be out.

Yeah I feel like that bit would have landed better if they had started cutting into the guy and he was actually a cake, but he kept freaking out the whole time.

Something from last episode (i think) that i forgot to mention. The pet semetary experimentation was hilarious. From rick thinking it stupid to then being super into it.

I wanted Morty to portal to the rich dudes at the end and give them one of his open minded missiles

I loved the whole experiment thing they had going with the semeraty. Starting with recharging Morty's phone, a car that ran out of petrol, putting a dead body in tinfoil.

yeah i think in the spaghetti episode Rick gets excited to explore 'grey areas' and since then it's been so apparent that it really makes him happy

I know they don't get into it too much because the whole point is that Rick is bored and jaded from seeing the wonders/horrors of the infinite universe, but it's really fun when they just lean into him being a scientist and trying to figure something out. Pet Sematary was such a fun bit.

I think it would have worked better as an early season Futurama episode.

All the stupid puns and wordplay was always much more a Futurama thing than a Rick and Morty thing.

YES...HAHAHAHA....EGG!
I understand why you can't have Rick there because he would just instantly solve it, but no Rick plus Morty being so unambiguously into it made the episode kinda lack bite. It needed somebody more clearly taking the piss out of it for the joke to work.

I think that actually works a lot better if instead of Goldenfold, you use Space Beth. She can be a smartass about the whole thing, have history with Water T and help without being as overpowered as Rick.

Although, this episode follows directly from the stinger of the Get Schiwfty episode...so was this actually a secret season one episode or was that stinger secretly a season seven stinger? Which would mean this is actually the Parmesan Dimension Water T.....?

Some of y'all hated math and it shows.

The brackets usage was top level pun work. Master level puns throughout.

I can see why some hate it though. Round numbers are full of ups and downs. Lots of remainders of inadequacy.

I wonder if they pitched using a 1 with a hundred zeros after it.

Also yeah, this was probably in the bottom rung of episodes for this season for me, but still in the "goddamn I enjoyed that" register. I don't want to be a broken record but this season has just been hitting for me over and over again; I feel Mr. Poopybutthole and the Unity episode were setting me up for a middling obligation-watch but every episode since those has had me hootin' and hollerin'.
