[Summer, Rick, and Morty are experiencing a glitch as a result of the siblings' bickering and their reality has been split into two hypothetical timelines, which Rick is scrambling to reconcile]
Rick: Uncertainty is inherently unsustainable. Eventually, everything either is or isn't. And we've got about four hours to be "is."
Morty: [in both timelines] Or...?

As great as ever!
6 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

I loved this episode and can see why so many people consider it one of the best in the series! Then again, this show is so awesome I have yet to find any bad episodes. This is one of the most visually interesting ones as it features the timelines being split in two, and then four, and then eight, etc. It's just fun to look at the subtle differences the two timelines have and I love how they're both seen at the same time. It's only at the end that they focus on just one. I love how this show always surprises me by having a truly heartwarming moment at the end. I'm not going to give the ending away, but let me tell you it's worth it.

It's great to see Rick, Morty and Summer working together. The idea of a place being surrounded by floating cats is just awesome. I have looked a bit into Schrodinger's cat myself. Everyone is just as entertaining as ever. Rick as usual gets the best lines. It's just great to see this get more and more bizarre and entertaining. ****
