Let’s take a look!

I couldn’t resist including the table of contents so you can see the sheer amount of inside jokery at work here.

He’s the only one that’s allowed to have Eyeholes!

Rick and Morty: The Official Cookbook by James Asmus and August Craig will be out October 4; you can pre-order a copy here. New episodes of the sixth season of Rick and Morty arrive Sundays on Adult Swim.

Update Tuesday, September 6, 6:30pm ET: the final version of the table of contents, with page numbers included, has been swapped in.
