    Rick may get all the attention, but Morty is just as essential to Adult Swim's Rick and Morty. Here are the reasons why #MortyMatters and why it's perfectly okay to be a Morty.

      The first episode was called the adventures of Doc and Marty, Phineas and Ferb wasn't an inspiration for the show dumb ass.

    ...Every time you say emotional inteligence..... just no that is not a thing some try to make it a thing but it is just not there is no connection to intelligance there you could call it emotional intuition or something along those lines the ability to gage emotion is completely appart from the concept of intelligence so why try to connect the two terms so desperately? because Intelligence to you just means some sort of mental competence?

    I think that the comment section just made my cringes autistic. Whenever I cringe from now on, people will think I'm autistic, and reject me due to their retarded delusions that autism is a disease that makes people retarded and completely oblivious to what's going on around them. It also means extra patronising and suffering, aw geez. What has our society become?

    fuck yea rick n morty ill will love to be rick i love science

  • Ghost in a jar Madore

    For me, Morty is the hero of the show. Even though Rick is almost godlike, Morty is 14 and somehow handles the pressure of adolescence laced with super science and the mysteries of our universe. Somehow he seems to come out on top. I relate to him because in my youth I was damaged and didn't think I would live to see 30. But at age 50 now,looking back over the years my youth was an incredible adventure, I'm sure like most people......

    Fuck, have you even watched the show, so many things you said are Rong, like the thing about froopy land Phineas and Ferb, the inspiration was back to the future. Also, if you did watch the show you would know that Rick and Tomy said, Beth was a scary and psychotic child.

    I feel like Morty is even smarter than he lets on. I mean, figured out how to basically cronenberg Ethan with a machine he also seemed to know nothing about originally. He learns things to protect the heart. He does whatever it takes to protect his family, both physically and emotionally. He would clearly even destroy someone to avenge a family member's honor.

    Morty also matters because the Morty waves cancel out the Rick waves, which is especially important to Rick C-137 because he has to hide from The Citadel and The Federal galatic Gov. or whatever. But i still agree with this video.

    Morty is camouflage. Evil Morty rigged the election - the first time we see him he's killing Rick & imprisoning Mortys, many of whom no doubt eventually ended up at the Council of Ricks. My question is why there are no Diane's except in Rick's memories. Rick's wife never appears among any of the limitless Ricks. She appears briefly in Rick's memory when he's being probed by evil Morty's robot Rick & again in Rick's fake backstory. It never comes up but if there has to be a Beth for there to be a Morty & there has to be a Diane for there to be a Beth.

    come on morty has to be somewhat intelligent more so than maybe he himself knows after all how many Neutrino bombs can an average person disarm? my guess probably none and morty is heard telling rick hes disarmed too many of them which would indicated alot or at the very least id guess around 10 but hell even one would be impossible for the average person unless odds were in their favor and they happen to cut press or destroy that one area that disarms the bomb at 2 seconds left oh wait thats only in movies lol.

    I like what u did here, but morty isnt just emotionally intelligent. Even in the comics which r canon if im not wrong, when rick isnt present he is actually a genius. Hes not on the same level as rick but is able to take over the world and send a biogenetic slug thing thru portals. So he is highly intelligent

    Moreover, the episode that rick and morty detoxinate themselves also has a vital clue about the notion you coined. Remember other rick ( toxic one) invented electricity while morty was making pottery. So, as we know, science is an objective thing that is why there is no need for ethics while pottery(as an type of art) is remarkably relative and its ethical evolution is affected by dynamoes of each civilization(culture). Last but not a least, the thing said by moonman approved this little art, science and ethis paradox. (sorry for my bad English)

  • Lu Austin

    Emotional intelligence isn't worthless, but compared to IQ it does not give you an accurate representation of how successful you will be later in life. The reason why emotional intelligence is bullshit is because in the cases where we need innovation, or brand new concepts that save hundreds of millions of lives the act of sympathy or understanding is worthless. Understanding someones emotions did not create the Polio vaccine. Society isn't wrong in assuming that emotional intelligence is inferior to IQ, well at least unless you are one of the plebs that gets angry about the IQ vs EI while using a device that was created by a genius. If you are that type of person than don't reply.
