Status: Tertiary Character
First Appearance: “Pilot”
Voice Actor: Kari Wahlgren
The object of Morty’s affection, Jessica is a beautiful redhead and…that’s about it. She doesn’t have much of a personality, largely filling the role of a popular girl that Morty just happens to like. There doesn’t seem to be any given reason outside of shallow teenage lust, but she’s the one girl constantly on Morty’s mind. Though Morty has tried to win her heart genuinely, he’s just obsessed with her enough that he unwisely asked Rick to concoct a love potion to use in “Rick Potion No.9.” This backfired horribly when Morty used the chemical during flu season, causing Jessica and the entire population of Earth to fall madly in love with Morty and trigger an apocalypse. Morty was a bit more successful in “Big Trouble in Little Sanchez” when he took her to the dance, though any upgrade on their relationship seem to be nil. Despite the repeated setbacks, Morty is determined to win her heart.
For Jessica’s part, she is kind to Morty even if she doesn’t directly acknowledge his existence. Though she willingly dated a jerk football player, all she wants is a nice, caring guy. Morty hopes to be that guy.
