Rick and Morty has delivered quotable one-liners since its very first episode. With the show recently starting its third season, it’s hard to keep track of the hilariously dark wisdom-drops that come out of each of the characters’ mouths.
That’s where a new online tool comes in: “Master of All Science” is a quote index where you can search for any Rick and Morty quote and turn it into a meme or create a gif from your favorite show moments.
The site was made by Paul Kehrer, Sean Schulte, and Allie Young, the team that also created Frinkiac and Morbotron, which are each similar meme and gif generators for The Simpsons and Futurama, respectively. “Master of All Science” works like both of the tools that came before it: search for your favorite Rick and Morty quote using keywords (like “pop tart”) or phrases (like “existence is pain”), and a bunch of stills pop up that match your search. You can then pick a still image and create a meme using the dialogue from the show as the caption (and you can edit the quote to distill your sentiment even further), or make a gif by selecting a number of frames that play in succession.
In comparison to The Simpsons and Futurama, Rick and Morty is in its infancy so “Master of All Science” doesn’t have the nearly one million screencaps that Morbotron does, much less the three million screencaps that Frinkiac does. However, Kehrer and the team didn’t leave any stone unturned before launching the site—it’s already up-to-date with searchable quotes from all aired Rick and Morty episodes, including the most recent episodes from season three.
The team plans to update the site within a few days after each new episode airs as well, so you’ll always be able to search for your favorite new quote.
According to Kehrer’s blog post, the goal is to keep “Master of All Science” running for at least nine years… as long as they get that Szechuan sauce in the end.
