The good people at Rick & Morty get a lot of comedic mileage out of Justin Roiland’s ability to improvise some of the funniest – and most bizarre – lines of dialogue that you’ll find anywhere. So when they released a clip of their titular characters going at it in a courtroom on their Facebook page last Friday, I was sure that it was another example of their undeniable genius.
However, the clip is actually, as they put it, “a faithful, word-for-word recreation of one colorful day in the American court system”, and how bizarre it truly is.
Last June, the court transcript for The State of Georgia vs. Denver Fenton Allen made the Internet rounds because of its extreme vulgarity. A defendant, Denver Allen, dissatisfied with his court-appointed attorney in a murder case (he claimed the attorney tried to sexually coerce him), unleashed a tirade of sexually and violently abusive language on Floyd County Superior Court Judge Bryant. The two got into a heated, hilarious and unbelievable exchange.
But reading it is only half as good as hearing/watching it. And with that in mind, here is the clip of Roiland voicing the shouting match to end all shouting matches:
The exchange, which I have included in full below, is incredible. Absolutely incredible. These two need a reality show ASAP, just as soon as Allen gets out of jail for murder, and all the contempt charges he racked up for telling the “fuckman judge” to suck his donkey dick. I honestly don’t know which I love more, the fact that this is a word-for-word re-enactment, or that it’s Rick and Morty who are are reenacting it.
