"It’s incredible that a man of so many brilliant thoughts could be so lonely. I suppose when you travel the universe as many times as you have one realizes just how alone they really are." - Mrs. Sanchez
Just some things I think she would have said
Well here it is, my young Rick and Beth’s Mom (I’m sure the show will give her a cooler name but I just call her (Bonnie) for the sake of story telling.
Rick Sanchez, Scientific Genius
Dr. Stephens, an acclaimed Ethologist and Anthropologist. (Hint towards Beth’s interest in animals)
You can read the whole theory of their meeting here!
I hope you enjoy and feedback appreciated!
Already having made a name for himself in the Science community (Not necessarily a positive one.) Shortly after the race for the moon landing, it was rumored among the elite science community that the Soviet Union had joined forces with Germany (reverse engineering) to not only travel to a different galaxy, but also study and research it’s inhabitants.
Despite the Science community’s initial dislike of Rick due to his poor behavior and lack of priorities, his reckless scientific craft had proven to be the most exellerated above any other respected scientist of their time. They presented Rick with the proposition of him being the one to race the SU and Germany for extraterrestrial researching to which he accepted, since he had nothing better to do.
Fearing that Rick would simply drink himself silly the whole trip, Rick was assigned a partner, a young and well respected Ethologist and Anthropologist (Beth’s mother).
Her in-depth research and study of the structure, embryology, evolution , classification and habits of wild life along with her study of human behavior has received a critical acclaim.
Of course, nothing could insult Rick more than to pair him up with some ditzy animal lover.
However, (Bonnie) was not the one to be toyed with. She had been warned about Rick’s attitude and greeted him with a very professional and ‘cold’ shoulder. When it came down to the nitty gritty she got down to business. She was direct and thorough, constantly looking over her notes and unfortunately seemed to be the target of all of Rick’s insults, to which she paid no mind to. After several mind numbingly fruitless nights as they traveled Rick pushed her buttons a little too far, resulting in her finally snapping and stating -
"My profession requires me study to animals in their natural habitat, and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing these past few nights i’ve spent with you. Please by any means do not think that you are in any sort of way complicated. I had you figured out the second you opened your mouth."
Of course her insults certainly didn’t earn Rick’s unquestioning silence, but it certainly got her a little more respect from him.
When the expeditions began, Bonnie was in awe of the new beauty the solar system had to offer. The research she gathered was none the less incredible. Not too much to her surprise, Rick didn’t seem to moved by the sights. When she questioned him he replied that he’s seen it all before and that its been a while since he’s breath’s been taken away, to which her reply is-
"It’s incredible that a man of so many brilliant thoughts could be so lonely. I suppose when you travel the universe as many times as you have one realizes just how alone they really are."
From that point his insults still came flying, but there was a hint of affection behind them. She was an intelligent woman and wasn’t about to fall for sudden out pour of affection, his interest in her was subtle because it was still soaking into his mind. He was good at what he did and she was good and what she did. Neither had nothing to prove to anyone. Neither yielded nor gave in, but he himself never called it love because that word proved to follow with many disappointments. He figured out it mathematically and accepted it as fact. A though a mind of racing thoughts that continuously needed to be dulled down by the soothing hands of alcohol, he was glad that the thought of her had the same effect, even if down the line human nature would tear them apart. Such is the life of he to studies the planets and the stars and she who studies that which walks among them.
