Rick and Morty - The Jerrick Trap

Things get crazy when a bickering Rick (Ian Cardoni) and Jerry (Chris Parnell) have their minds swapped, quickly leading to the death of both and a garage computer "fix" which leaves both sharing aspects of each other's consciousness. While the family is obviously concerned, the pair quickly adapt to their new normal with Jerry gaining a bit of Rick's intellect and Rick gaining a bit of Jerry's easy-going nature leading the pair to become a wacky crime duo without a care in the world. Well... without a care except for their family being kidnapped by gangsters. It's as wacky as it sounds, and only gets more so when the pair eventually merge into one being.

The episode is notable for the weird hamburger calling card of the pair of new best friends, the return of Gene, Morty (Harry Belden) taking advantage of the gangsters early on before Rick Jerry and Jerry Rick create a scene leading to the conflict which will bring them back into their family's lives at the end of the episode, and the post-credit sequence of a part of Rick's mind remained trapped in Jerry's subconscious unable to make an escape route because Jerry honesty believes all technology runs on springs. "The Jerrick Trap" is a fun episode in which both Rick and Jerry find a happiness neither ever achieved alone only to return to their bickering ways once restored back to normal.
