What is the reference for [Hep C] saving Morty and Co from Hep A in the "Anatomy Park" episode? I'm sure there has to be a scientific or cultural reference here, so what is it?

In terms of scene framing, Hep A and Hep C is supposed to look somewhat similar to the final climatic scene of Jurassic Park where the T-Rex snatches up the small raptor mid-jump.

In the Rick and Morty scene, the action plays out almost identically.

  • This gets the movie reference, but it doesn't answer the "why Hep C" part. I'd assume there's some medical joke going on here (does Hep C ever help rather than hinder humans?), but so far I've never seen an answer addressing this part of the joke. – DavidS Oct 29 '18 at 14:26
  • @DavidS - It's possible, of course, that the writers were just going for the JP joke, and picked Hep A and Hep C as diseases that might exist in the human body (or at least, in that human's body) – RDFozz Oct 29 '18 at 16:06
  • I believe Morty is just calling (comedic) attention to the plot hole that's present in the movie being referenced. I do not have a great immediate memory of Jurassic Park, so I may be wrong. – sonnik Oct 29 '18 at 20:13
