On April Fools Day, Dan Harmon released an online stream of the first episode of Rick and Morty season 3.
Since the episode launch, the internet has gone into a tailspin about the “Szechuan McNugget” sauce that McDonald’s released in 1998. The sauce was a promotion for the Disney movie, Mulan.
Rick’s quote from the season three premiere:
“I’m not driven by avenging my dead family…. I’m driven by finding that McNugget sauce. I want that Mulan McNugget Sauce … That’s my series arc, Morty. If it takes nine season, I want that McNugget Szechuan sauce.”
