On Rick And Morty's surprise third-season premiere on Saturday, Rick revealed his single defining goal in life: "I'm driven by finding that McNugget sauce".
If you've seen the episode, you know that a particular McDonald's McNugget sauce-seen above being enjoyed by Galactic Federation agent Cornvelious Daniel (voiced by Firefly and Castle star Nathan Fillion)-played a significant role in the episode. I want that Mulan McNugget Sauce.
Word got back to a McDonald's chef who tweeted that he'd "see what I can do."
The Szechuan dipping sauce was released in conjunction with the 1998 #Disney classic Mulan as a promotional product.
Somehow the mad genius delirious obsession for the sauce has infected fans of the series who're bringing their cause on Change.org where they're petitioning McDonalds bring back the prized Szechuan sauce back.
The petition has received incredible amounts of support!
Carter Page Russia Spy Meeting: 3 key takeaways on former Trump adviser
In a previous conversation with Buzzfeed , Page didn't deny that he may have had interactions with undercover Russian spies. In a written exchange with The Washington Post , Page confirmed playing a role in the case but declined to discuss details.
McDonald's will be presented with a convenient opportunity to bring back the sauce next year when a live-action version remake of the film "Mulan" is released in November 2018. While McD and the Rick and Morty creators are on board, to truly bring this tangy gravy back, we'd also need the participation of Disney.
And while some fans are no doubt devastated to find out that Rick's backstory is about as deep as a pot of McDonald's sauce I personally think it's brilliant and keeps Rick a hilariously enigmatic figure.
"I'm not driven by avenging my dead family, Morty", Rick says in the episode's closing minutes.
And, in case you were wondering, here's an official advertisement for the sauce.
In February, Adult Swim Australia even went as far as taunting fans by posting a video titled "Rick and Morty: New Clip", which was actually a "Rick Roll", via clips of the show wording each line of the lyrics.
Of course if you're too busy travelling the multiverse with your idiot grandkids to make your own sauce you're in luck, there's at least one dimension where McDonald's may be bringing it back. What do you think it tastes like?
