How Do You Solve A Problem Like Jerry Smith?

In Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland’s crazy, disturbing and hilarious world of ‘Rick and Morty’, there are Ricks and there are Mortys. And there are Beths. There are also Summers, and Bird Persons, and Mr Poopybutthole, and aliens and robots and mutants and devils and all kinds of weird and terrifying individuals.

And, of course, there are Jerrys.

Today we’re going to be talking about Jerry, technically the patriarch of the Smith clan - though that ‘technically’ is doing a lot of heavy lifting. Voiced by Chris Parnell, who judging by his work on ‘Archer’ seems to have a real penchant for playing cowardly, ultimately useless nebbishes, Jerry Smith… well what can you say about him? A coward, a blowhard, a parasite, a toxic combination of ego and inferiority complex? Definitely not the kind of person you’d want at your side during a dangerous intergalactic adventure?

But at the same time, an oddly sweet, possibly misunderstood guy. A guy who does, every now and then, come through for his family. Sure, sometimes that’s by accident. But we don’t have to hold that against him, do we? Well. At least not all the time.

In this video, we’re going to be taking a deep dive into Jerry, looking at five instances in which he - sometimes ambiguously - triumphed and saved the day, and five times that he royally screwed things up.

Get ready for some deep interstellar cringe. It’s Jerry o’clock.

You forgot when he faked the deer rescue people so Beth could finish surgery and when he actually became a man with cronnenburgs. I think his finest 2 moments.

Jerry is easily my favorite character!
Tbh jerry needs more self confidence and not to blame everything on rick but rick needs to be better towards him like in the cat ep and beth and the kids need to not treat hum like dead weight all the time

Lol it funny cause in season one he is the greatest guy who loved and cared about his family and even had a stable job, Rick and Morty totally destroyed that universe, and travel to the alternate time where he the total opposite, and since then he been harp on for the entire series. Hell even when Morty went back to his oringial timeline with Summer the Jerry there was a strong leading man who do anything for his family survival, which included destroying any trace of Rick and keeping their Morty

I'm starting to see that they're not getting the views they need from how much subscribers they have. It's honestly deserved I suppose. I wonder if they still copy people's videos?🤔

I still really hate Jerry. Him and Summer are the only characters I don't like in the show. And I didn't notice until around S2 they both have the same head shape and face. Blegh!

I don't blame jerry for the remote incident it's Mortys fault for not saving after they were rescued
veikkomies Vor 14 Tage
So several times when he "saves the day" he's also to blame for causing the situation in the first place

Literally any single problem in the show is directly or indirectly caused by Rick, and even he doesn't fix every problem he causes.

This is HORRIBLE exposition. Jerry IS NOT a good person FAR from it. He has ZERO redeming qualities. Rick and Morty has no heros Everyone is a different type of villan lol

Jerry didnt save Ricks life in Whirly Durly. He just fixed his own mistake. Thats equivalent of me shooting you. You dont die. Then i remove the bullet and save ya life. Thats not saving someones life. Thats realizzi g youade a mistake

Am I the only one who adores Jerry? 😂 I know he’s pathetic and all but he’s also really cute in his own way.

Oh Jerry. It’s sad that his alleged parasitic weakness is enough of a basis for his “wins”.

Guys, you have to be deep thinkers to really get this show, he turns into a pickle, the underlying subtext of the absurdity of the situation is hilarious because a person with the levels of genius rick has would find it absurd. Guys it's funny, just like friends.
