‘Rick and Morty’ Fans Ask a Valid Question About Finances of The Smiths

Rick and Morty has been one of the best-animated series Netflix ever had. First aired in 2013, this series has piqued the interest of viewers worldwide. The series revolves around a dynamic duo of a psychotic scientist Dr. Rick and his equally twisted grandson, Morty. The franchise has a total of five seasons until now when Adult Swim would be adding another smash hit season this month. The series is full of weirdly hilarious and bizarre adventurous events of Rick and Morty as they go on switching from one universe to another wreaking havoc.

However, as the saga of such events continues, something interesting caught the attention of a few fans. A slew of Redditors has come up with an utterly funny but valid question from the show, Rick and Morty. The platform is flooded with the replies and comments that followed, and here’s what it was all about.

Fans question Smiths’ finances as Rick alone can fetch them billions in Rick and Morty

The fans have taken to Reddit to ask the reason behind the Smiths going to work when Rick Sanchez alone can make them trillionaires. The Smith family is in a unique position because of him. They are able to use his inventions and access to other planets to their benefit. We see this when Rick heals Morty’s broken legs and hands with his portal gun.

In addition to that, we get a glimpse of his homemade security system, which includes blast shields and kill-bots. Now, although Rick is quite a professional scientist, all his experiments are hazardous to death. Although it’s worth millions, it hurls the entire family into chaos by coming up with his craziest experiments like Operation Phoenix and Robot baby maker. Keeping this in view, fans humorously ask this question and you’ll be stunned at the reactions.

Why do the Smiths work? I mean since Rick can literally make them trillionaires from rickandmorty


Rick has transcended beyond a need for money, although he does acknowledge how entire civilizations of lesser beings revolve around a need for it. Undoubtedly, the biggest example of this is when he topples the galactic government by changing a 1 to a 0. Thus, destroying the value of the blemflarck, a universally-accepted currency.

Rick’s access to everything values much more than currency notes. With all his inventions he can probably make The Smiths one of the richest in Seattle suburbs. However, it doesn’t ever occur to him to help his family for which others have to keep up and they keep up quite well.

This was our two cents and that of fans. What about you? Why do you think Smiths go to work when Rick can make them rich? Share your theories with us in the comments below.

    Fun article, but the figure of speech is “wreaking havoc”, not “wrecking havoc”.
