Best Rick and Morty Episodes

The Top Ten

1 Total Rickall

Maybe we'll see Chewbacca... - MrJulienT

There is pure action and entertainment sprinkled all throughout this episode. It's no wonder that it's the most popular episode of the series.

It has to be total rickall! No doubt, it was most entertaining, most interesting, most creative and perfect story line. This is by far my favourite episode

He does have these weird sounding catch phrases

2 The Ricklantis Mixup

Best episode ever the ending was so unexpected

This episode is brilliant. Can't wait to see what's going to happen to the Citadel in the season four.

3 Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind

"I am more than just a hammer..! "
- Hammerhead Morty

Best episode ever in my opinion totally love the storyline was good we met more Ricks and Mortys which was the best thing ever to happen

Really interesting plot, brilliant and funny dialogue and just 100 % what we expect from Rick + Morty.

What? Morty doesn't deserve to be tortured!

4 Rick Potion #9

This one was so funny when everyone was lusting for Morty. The principle was especially funny! - Spongehouse

This set the tone of the series for me, it's dark and messed up but it's also funny.

This episode brought the show from a great show to a complete T.V. masterpiece

Take me to Morty.

6 The Rickshank Redemption

For me, every Rick and Morty episode is kind of hit or miss. Either it is okay, or it is amazing! And even the amazing episodes have at least one element that I dislike about them. This episode is the exception!

This was well paced, action packed, and funny. The only downside is the fanbasss craze over the Mulan sauce just because rick is cool and also likes it. - money_face

Best episode

This is without doubt, the greatest episode of rick and morty. It was the funniest, darkest, most epic, most clever, one of the most emotional episodes, and this isn't mentioning the ending, which was surprising, hilarious, and a great reference to the pilot. - kempokid

7 Meeseeks and Destroy

One of the funniest episodes in my opinion of the whole. HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE THE MEESECKS?!?! Their awesome! - Spongehouse

The Meeseeks crack me up every time, even though their voice is a little ridiculous, they never annoy me and make me laugh. There's something about them. I also very much enjoyed how dumb Jerry was. And the side quest with Morty's adventure was pretty great. I loved the loving connection between Rick and Morty too. Perfect episode, in my opinion.

I really enjoyed this one. The Meeseeks were quite entertaining and it was sweet how Rick comforted Morty after the jellybean incident.

Best of the best

8 The Ricks Must Be Crazy

This is the only episode that was strong all the way through. Where other episodes had their low points this one just had it all, the whole time.

Keep Summer safe...

I don't know how this is so low on the list at #7 it was really good all the way rickall is overrated it was just random and to be honest I'm gonna upset some people but I thought mortynight run was the worst episode...usually lower episodes will have a few things going for it but not that one it only had the moonmen song which showed random trippy moments, honestly I felt like that episode should never have come out, it was like it was made for potheads or people doing shrooms. You take away those 2 song parts and there is literally no good parts or any decent plot in the whole episode. It's trash! But the ricks must be crazy was a rollercoaster all the way through.

Amusing plot and all jokes on point #BestEpisodeEver

9 Lawnmower Dog

Where are my testicles, Summer? - AlphaQ

This episode is better and make senser than inception movie!

I like this episode because at the beggining the dog pees on the carpet and Jerry (Mortys dad) pushes his head on the urine.

10 Pickle Rick

Defiantly one of my favorites of season 3. Plus it was the first episode I watched from this show! - Spongehouse

I didn't like this episode as much. The fan base went crazy over nothing and it's annoying. Also the therapist treats rick like a child. - money_face

It was definitely great as an episode and the episode itself will always remain as one of the funniest troll episodes but the fanbase has used the Pickle Rick joke and meme so much that instead of making it funny, it now becomes annoying. - Daviddv0601

The Contenders

11 M. Night Shaym-Aliens!

Jerry's best day ever... More like best Jerry Episode.

A simulation, within a simulation inside another simulation!

Is this website a simulation?

I just love all the glitches. The glitching kickball, the boss walking into the corner, the hot dogs and bun in the middle, all that weird stuff.

12 Look Who's Purging Now

So much action! I love it! - Spongehouse

This one is seriously underrated I really enjoyed this one, and the rocks must be crazy really surprised me it was really good. Total rickall was ok it was just random and weird it didn't really have a twist or good plot I don't know why its up there and close Rick counters of the Rick kind was overrated, it was good but didn't live up to the hype for me.

This episode made me laugh!

13 Mortynight Run

Somebody needs to make a real life "Roy" game

I loved the song about the moonmen that "fart" sings - Spongehouse

I'm speechless on how good this was

An underrated episode. art and writing are stunning and I wish this episode got more recognition.

14 Anatomy Park
15 The Wedding Squanchers

It was awesome how they played NIN's Hurt at the end.

Best episode ever
Such an annoying cliffhanger

Isn’t necessarily the best episode but I teared up when Rick drops the photo of himself, Birdperson and Squanchy. - Crocoduck

16 A Rickle in Time

I loved the testicle alien - Spongehouse


17 The Rickshank Rickdemption

So far this one is the best by a mile.

18 Get Schwifty

This episode should be higher on the list- it was so good! The plot was creative and entertaining. Also, even though this is adult swim, there actually was still a subtle moral in there (which is great! You're never to old for morals). Morty learned not to abandon the ones you care about when they're in need and to have faith in their abilities. Rick was by far at his most likable self in this episode, and when he hugged Morty in the end was so sweet! Overall, I really enjoyed Get Schwifty and it should be ranked higher on this list.

Yea this was so creative and the heads and everyone thought it was some religion lmao - AlphaQ

This legit should be #1-10 and then the list should continue.

This is my favorite episode

19 Morty's Mind Blowers

I don't understand why this episode isn't higher up, it's honestly in my top 5 favorite episodes, it's just that great. It's not the best episode, that goes to either Ricklantis Mixup or Close Encounters of the Rick-kind, but honestly this just had so much to offer and it really was just the writers doing whatever they wanted to with Morty's memories that he had removed, it was really just a fun episode all the way.

This episode has the greatest Rick and Morty quote.

Ooh that's clever Morty. But I don't use colour to sort things because I'm not a mouse in a Europeans children's book- Rick - CannabisCat420

This was, by far, the funniest episode in the series. Maybe not the best, but surely the funniest of 'em all.

20 Big Trouble in Little Sanchez

This was badly packed and rick breaks character a little too much - money_face

Tiny rick is funny - BoyGenius234


Let me out, what you see is not the same person as me
My life's a lie, I'm not who you're looking at
Let me out, set me free, I'm really old
This isn't me
My real body's slowing dying in a vat
Is anybody listening, can anyone understand
Stop looking at me like that and actually help me
Help me, help me I'm gonna die
Tiny Rick

21 Tales from The Citadel

Personally, it's my favorite of season three, and my second favorite in the series. Great episode!

Holy hell this was good

Best of season 3

This is wrong, the real name of the episode is "The Ricklantis Mixup", wich is already on the list

22 The Rickchurian Mortydate

I love this one - Spongehouse

23 Pilot

The beginning was hilarious. - money_face

This one was so funny, I had to pause it from laughing so hard

24 Something Ricked This Way Comes

Perhaps Jerry's best moment as a father was at the end of the episode.

Great twist on a great book

25 The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy

Underrated - Spongehouse

Come on this one was good - mccabek

Loved this episode!

26 Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender
27 Ricksy Business

Morty was very relatable in this one. Rick was also awesome. This episode is underrated - money_face

best bby

28 Auto Erotic Assimilation

So good and has really sad ending plus a huge sex party

29 Rest and Ricklaxation

It's so clever the episode

This is easily my least favorite - Spongehouse

30 Raising Gazorpazorp

Morty and his son got too little screen time - money_face

This one is probably my least favorite. Not much happens with the Rick and Summer plot, they just stand around and argue with extreme feminist aliens. It has funny parts, but it's still kind of weak. The other plot involves Morty trying to raise an alien baby. Again, there's some funny parts, but it's a pretty stock plot. Also the climax is extremely brief. With that said, it's still an alright episode. - mtndewlord

31 Interdimensional Cable 2: Tempting Fate

It was an interesting episode - Spongehouse

I was shocked to see this not even in the top 20 this was by far the funniest episode ever when I watched it high, the randomness of it is just gold

I'm octopus man!

I refuse to sign the legislation that allows Interdimensional Cable 2: Tempting Fate to be this low on the list because it is a great episode despite what Justin Roiland said.

32 Rickmancing the Stone

i guess


33 The ABCs of Beth

This episode was kind of disturbing - Spongehouse

34 Bushworld Adventures

Does this count? - CannabisCat420
