However, Rick brings Morty anyway, and the two fight a battle in space that they win successfully.

Upon returning to the spaceship, Rick and Morty break down and talk about how they don't want to be doing those kinds of things anymore. Rick even says, "Maybe I hate myself," in trying to come up with an answer why they put themselves always in danger.
