Rick and his dim grandson Morty are taking on Inception.

In a bid to give Morty's math teacher dreams of giving the struggling student top marks, Rick invents an Inception-like device and the series takes a swing at the 2010 Christopher Nolan film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Check out the clip above. Rick and Morty airs on Mondays at 10:30 p.m. on Adult Swim. And in case you missed it, watch the first episode here.
