Birdperson (voiced by the show's co-creator, Dan Harmon) is an old friend of Rick's - they've fought together, got blackout drunk together, even been in a band together! Wise beyond his bird-years, he offers a monotonous stream of third-person advice to anyone who will listen... and many who won't. Rick's catchphrase 'wubba lubba dub dub' apparently comes from Birdperson's native language, where it means 'I am in great pain, please help me'. Alas, Birdperson's life came to a tragic (if temporary) end after he hooked up with Summer's friend Tammy at Rick's houseparty. The two fell in love and were married, only for Tammy to reveal that she had been an agent of the Galactic Federation all along - shooting him dead, along with many of the intergalactic criminals at the wedding. It was a real dick move.
