Fourth Wall Jokes are gags in the series where the characters of the show will acknowledge that they are in a TV series. This has been done many times in Rick and Morty, although most of the jokes are subtle references as opposed to straight-out fourth wall breaking jokes.

Season 1


  • Rick was seen talking to Morty about all the adventures that they would be going on in the future, and mentioned "www.Rick and" which is the website for their show.

Lawnmower Dog

  • When Snowball and the other dogs left and went to another dimension, Rick and Morty talked about what their world would be like if their species ruled the world. When talking about it, they talked about it the way people would talk about a TV show or movie. This is a reference to Dog World. A proposed pilot for a Cartoon Network TV series, made by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon.

Anatomy Park

  • Just before credits, with the family around the living room with their digital gadgets, Rick says, "Are you people even human? What kind of Christmas is this?" at which point Jerry looks up from his iPad and looks through the fourth wall and shrugs his shoulders with an amiable smile, as if to say, "What are you asking me for. I'm just a Jerry."

Meeseeks and Destroy

  • At the end of the episode, Rick turned to the camera and bid a goodbye to the viewers.

Raising Gazorpazorp

  • When Rick and Summer saw the giant head drop of the Gwendolyns to the male Gazorpazorps, Rick said "The plot thickens."
  • Rick is lifted and strangled by psychic power. After he is released, he hits the ground and says "What's the opposite of 'Wubba lubba dub dub'? am I right, ladies and gentlemen?"
  • Rick again turned to the camera at the end of the episode, bidding the audience a goodbye and the rest of the family, joined him, waving goodbye.

Rixty Minutes

  • When watching the Interdimensional Cable, Morty says that television in other dimensions is more laid back and less stressed than on Earth. Rick agrees with him, saying that the shows that they're watching are "Almost entirely improvisational". This was a reference to how most of the TV shows made for this episode were ad-libbed by the creators.

  • During Rick's memory with the plan concerning Nintendo 3DS's, after Rick leaves the room, he sticks his head back in and says "Nintendo, give me free stuff."
  • When he says lick lick lick my balls he goes to the camera and says that he says it all the time.

Interdimensional Cable 2: Tempting Fate

  • When Rick plugged the Interdimensional Cable into the wall, one of the doctors asked him what he was doing and he told her that it was a sequel, but he wasn't sure why since they'd "pretty much nailed it the first time".
