|Get Schwifty – Episode 205|
Rick and Morty save the day and a new religion starts up.
A massive alien head appears over the Earth, interfering with Earth’s gravity and spawning several global disasters in the process. When the head exclaims, “Show me what you got,” Rick travels to The Pentagon to inform the President of the United States that the alien head is a Cromulon, and it seeks a live performance of a catchy new song. Unfortunately, an earthquake hit the Grammy Awards presentation, killing all of Earth’s most famous musicians (including but not limited to Pharrell Williams, Randy Newman, Billy Corgan, and The-Dream) with the exception of Ice-T. In desperation, Rick and Morty compose and perform the song “Get Schwifty”. The head is pleased and transports the entire Earth to an intergalactic musical competition, viewed by more Cromulons, where the losers’ planets are obliterated. Rick and Morty team up with Ice-T to compose a new song, but Morty panics and steals Rick’s portal device to save his family. Ice-T reveals himself to be a jaded alien and leaves Rick alone. Jerry, Beth, and Summer get involved with a religious cult whose beliefs are based on their coincidental and incorrect interpretation of the actions of the Cromulons. Morty gets lost and traverses several portal openings, eventually stumbling onto Bird Person’s world. Bird Person encourages Morty to have faith in Rick and sends him back to Earth. The Cromulons disqualify Earth, but Ice-T returns and saves the planet from annihilation. Rick and Morty, back together again, perform a new hit song, satisfy the Cromulons, and win the contest. Meanwhile, the alien head cult quickly disbands after realizing it was all a musical reality show.
Post-Credit Scene: Ice-T returns to his home planet, Alphabetrium. His father rewards his heroic actions on Earth by lifting his exile and returning him to his true water form. When Alphabetrium is attacked by the Numbericons, “Water-T” rushes out to battle the invaders. The scene is then revealed to be an action movie promo.
