Rick and Morty - The Old Man and the Seat

"The Old Man and the Seat" is an odd episode that puts the fate of the world in the hands of Morty (Justin Roiland) and Jerry (Chris Parnell) while Rick (Roiland) becomes obsessed with finding and taking revenge on the person who used his private toilet. The episode obviously gets its name from Rick's storyline which, one could argue, is one of the few times that we've seen Rick actually defeated as he is unable to unleash his full fury on his adversary. In the other story, it's no surprise that Jerry's shortsightedness once again almost brings an end to the world when he ignores Rick and decides to make an app with Rick's new intern that causes everyone on Earth to question their life choices by finding their one true love (of the moment). Summer (Spencer Grammer), of course, takes to this instantly. Offering a nice dig on dating apps and algorithms, the storyline isn't quite as memorable and Rick's hate-filled obsession (even if it does all boil down to a single poop joke).
