— Rick Stanton, in reference to Godzilla (Godzilla: King of the Monsters)

Rick Stanton is a Monarch scientist who appears in the 2019 Legendary Pictures Godzilla film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Stanton began his career as a communications engineer before joining Landsat as a satellite mapping technician in the 1980's. While working for Landsat, he overheard company rumors about a covert expedition to the uncharted Skull Island in 1973, and reached out to one of the supposed project leads, Houston Brooks. The two quickly became friends, and Brooks introduced Stanton to his colleague Ishiro Serizawa. With both Brooks and Serizawa believing him a good fit for the organization, Stanton was recruited into Monarch, where he remains to this day. Stanton oversaw Monarch's satellite tracking system before being assigned to the underwater surveillance base Castle Bravo. As a Crypto-Sonographer for Monarch, Stanton's job is to tune into the sounds given off by the Titans around the world and use them to predict behaviors and movements and issue early warnings to the organization. Stanton records all of these sounds and catalogs them in Monarch's Titan audio forensics database dubbed "the Ark." Stanton is described as brilliant but high-strung, and his dedication to his work gives him little time for his personal life. Stanton has been divorced three times, and is effectively married to his work.[1]

Watching the film, I did not at all get the impression that this dude was meant to be based off Rick from Rick and Morty. He acts nothing like him and was just there to spout out one liners.

It is a great episode, and one that somewhat deconstructs Rick's character, but it also further marked the shift from the show's popularity, what with all the obnoxious, toxic memes and public harassment that it spawned.
