The members of the Council of Ricks aren’t the only ones who want to keep Lawyer Morty around “because he’s fun.” The internet’s taken a keen liking to a Morty that’s dolled-up to look like a lawyer in the Season 3 premiere, “The Rickshank Redemption.” Though he’s featured in only one brief scene and later glimpsed when the proverbial shit hits the fan, everybody loves everything he’s about, which definitely has absolutely nothing to do with practicing the law.
A Morty once played a fake judge in the dramatization of The State of Georgia v. Denver Fenton Allen court case, but now he’s got gelled hair, an unkempt suit, and a disheveled stack of papers as Lawyer Morty. He’s just sort of there to entertain the Council of Ricks during Summer and Morty’s trial, and he whispers in Morty’s ear about showing off his Pog collection. Later, when Rick C-137 teleports the entire Citadel of Ricks into the Galactic Prison, we get a glimpse of Lawyer Morty calling for “order in the court” before freaking out and running away:
