Rick and Morty - The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy

Pressured by Morty (Justin Roiland) to take the depressed Jerry (Chris Parnell) out on an adventure, Rick (Roiland) drags his reluctant son-in-law into space to an intergalactic resort sporting an immortality field which makes it impossible for the guests to die... at least as long as you stay inside the field. There the usually timid ad man will be tempted by the ridiculously named Risotto Groupon (Clancy Brown) to join in on a conspiracy to kill the mad scientist who ruined his family.

"The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy" gets to the heart of why Rick hates Jerry (ruining his daughter's potential), and attempting to get Rick killed actually leads to the pair understanding each other better than before. The subplot focuses on Beth (Sarah Chalke) struggling with the divorce and ignoring and then overcompensating for her daughter's teenage problems leading to a giant Summer (Spencer Grammer), turned inside out by one of Rick's machines (which Beth refuses to ask her father how to fix), stomping around the woods to get revenge on her ex and the slut who stole him from her. It seems douchebaggery is genetic in the Sanchez family.
