Are you a shy pooper too?
Rick and Morty Season 4 Episode 2, “The Old Man and the Seat,” is primarily about poop. But through poop, it explores so much more.
In the second episode of the long-awaited Season 4, Rick went on a “solo adventure”–as he put it–while Summer became obsessed with a dating app, Beth tried to stop her, and Morty and Jerry almost got executed in space. And about 50% of the episode was about pooping, toilets, and butt bombs that fart with enough force to blast through drywall and poop out big hands that flip you a stinky bird.
Don’t let the possibly record-breaking number of poop jokes fool you, though–“The Old Man and the Seat” was a thinker, too. What was up with that ending? What were Rick’s real feelings toward Tony, his throne-stealing nemesis? And why was Jerry’s drug-induced fantasy to be a water delivery guy?
We don’t have all the answers, but we do have these Easter eggs, references, and hidden jokes you might have missed.
