That bit at the start where Rick as Jerry immediately starts screaming, etc. was certainly memorable.

I liked this one more than the previous - it made sense to me that they would kind of even each other out in a way that made them into a new, weird-energy but skilled pair of buddies. I also found myself starting to forget that the voice actor had been replaced (it was still a little uncanny valley for me in the first episode). I agree with the decision to replace Roiland. One of the few things he seemed to contribute creatively was a darkly surreal kind of riffing, and I wonder if they will try to replicate that, or just drop it. It actually kind of fits the fact that the characters are getting to be happier and better-adjusted - in part by rubbing off on each other, which I guess this episode just takes to extremes.

This one was pretty great -- the adventures of Jerry/Rick & Rick/Jerry felt like peak classic R&M, and I loved the subplot with the mobster.
