I cut this out of the episode, but I'm seeing this question show up in the comments, so let me clarify:
- The clock in the garage is ALWAYS stuck at that time in every scene you see it, at least in this episode. So the time it reads can't be used as a part of putting together an accurate timeline of events. Good job looking out for it, though!

Beth wouldn't remember the clone conversation. Rick would remove that memory.

when Rick told the story about himself .he never said that his daughter survived, not just that, even the show creators never showed that how Beth was able to survive the blast . so, maybe Rick created beth and maybe while creating he made her totally like himself, i mean he can control the emotions of the clone , it was shawcased when he created clone of morty and summers , he changed the settings of emotion ....that is why beth is so badass

maby Beth going away and Rick makeing a clone happend long b4 this episode?
And this Beth is already a clone in the ABC episode, Rick could make a clone of a clone. and the clone could go away on a adventure.
the real Beth could already be on a adventure?

It doesn't matter if she is a clone or an "the original beth," according to the show originality is an illusion. Identity is not unique, there is an infinite number of versions of yourself. Objectively, every individual character in this show has insignificant worth. ... Except for the Rick they show the most, it seems the creators have decided now that he is a god.
Nathan Anderson

he doesnt defy mortality or time. ricks die all the time. this rick is just the rick that figures out how not to die, because he is the most rick. just look at the citadel. the only time any form of time travel happens is with the 4th dimensional creatures, and their crystal can stop time, but at a cost. beyond that time can be slowed but that is a natural phenomenon that can be exploited (and even then ricks time only moves forward, hence why every rick on the citadel is the same age. he doesnt defy gravity he redirects it with tech to let him walk on walls. he doesnt just snap his fingers and stuff happens, he finds a way to science the shit out of something to make it happen. nothing about him is supernatural, he just exploits loopholes and sees how the universe works. aka science. destruction isnt a god power, anything made of atoms can be broken apart by something. saying he is a god is like saying we are gods because we have jets, nukes,and phones.

He has supernatural powers. He defies natural laws and physics such as, mortality, gravity, and time. He is capable of destroying worlds, living and non-living organisms, pretty much anything that stands in his way. He can create life out of virtually nothing. Comparing this to ancient greek polytheistic theology he absolutely fits the criteria.

The photos of the family might throw this whole theory off. one of the photos shows mr.poopy.........wrong dimension broh! we dont know if the episode is about a diff. rick and morty or some of it. boomsticks. so main dimension rick/morty beth might have made a different choice.

it would be better story wise if she was cloned, as she could come back later and see what her clone has gained, the love of her family, which she never really had before. this would cause huge conflict between them, and with the access they have to Rick's and the univerese's advanced weaponary, could lead to the mother of all showdowns

How did Beth get to the party at the end of Vindicaters 3 if Rick was gone with the ship
And in abc of Beth if she was a clone she could roam free in the universe

For the people talking about how Jerry pulled them out of school, yeah that really doesn't put any speed bumps in this theory. You just move the time up a bit.
They don't go to Jerry's on Saturday, hence them being late, and so Rick sends them there on sunday. Tommy's father is being executed tomorrow hence he's slated to die on Monday. Jerry takes them back home after their night with him, hence why they don't go to HIS house but back to Beth's. So on the day Tommy is being executed while they're at school Jerry pulls them out. So they're busy not getting killed while Beth and Rick are handling the Tommy situation. So Rick and Beth come back and then the kids return, and the times are the same as what Matpat said. So Beth still isn't a clone based purely on them not having enough time.
Also it's irrational to presume they drove the car through a portal, because..... seriously when has Rick EVER sped up just driving? He has a portal gun, but he still flies around the universe in a ship. He has never used teleportation in a vehicle. He'd just let Beth drive them. We don't even know if a car can go into a portal. It's much simpler to just assume they drove home since they.... clearly drove there.

You say that but if you look at the clock behind the cloning chamber (4:26) It reads 2 o'clock meaning that this could of all happened on the Monday which would make sense as jerry pulled the kids out of school.

Or a easier way to put it is rick is literally comparable to the level of a god. He said there'd be 0% chance of it going blade runner meaning that no matter if he made the clone the clone would obviously have no memory of Beth and ricks conversation about doing the cloning thing. So in the final episode when Beth is freaking out about weither she is or isn't the clone that to me is proof enough that she isn't the clone. Rick would in no way make it to were the clone would remember that conversation cause then it could go ricks words "blade runner" the clone would literally be incapable of realising that it could or could not be a clone. Think about it. If you just woke up in bed one morning and nothing changed in any way at all. You felt the same thought the same did everything the same would you start thinking "Omfg im a clone" no you wouldn't. Boom

If and when Rick and Morty ends, they should have another series about the Beths or a Beth in an alternate time line who took Ricks offer and is doing crazy adventures like Rick. Who else agrees?

After leaving the execution facility, nothing would be stopping Rick from opening a portal back to the house when the coast was clear, if he cared at all by that point, and getting home instantly to the driveway and walking in as normal
He’d likely still have had Tommy’s clone chamber in the garage so he’d know there wasn’t room for the car in said garage
If he portal-gunned the car back home, there would be tons of time for the “Beth Clone” offer and for her to contemplate her options and make a decision, which would certainly include realizing that any given prior time that she’s ever slept, Rick could have already replaced her with clones hundreds of times
I still think she’s ~not~ a clone, but there’s also nothing to say that Rick didn’t offer to pull a Morty’s Mindblower on Beth, as he did one time on Jerry without him ever knowing, and the hundreds of times Rick messed with Morty’s memories off-screen before we were ever made aware as an audience. Tons of things happen off-screen in this show
If he plucked out memories of Beth doubting things or any number of her buried fears and apprehensions from the past year or so since arriving from Cronenberg Planet, then that would surely cause Beth to carry a more loving and healthy emotional bond for Rick (like a happy/cliché family might) but could also help to explain how/why she’s so open to working things out with Jerry since she is missing so many frayed and strained memories of Jerry that were likely fueled by Rick’s meddling in the first place.

i still think there are a few things missing that we can factor in. Maybe rick already had a Beth clone read. Or maybe when he said clone he meant roboclone like the one we see of Morty in the intro which i get from Rick saying "flip a switch and done". Also a cheap copout that the writers can use is that Beth is bot a clone and not a clone because of infinite timelines with infinite possibilities.

Also, this theory makes a lot of presumptions. The biggest being that execution chambers in this world are the same as the real world. Not only is it a cartoon approximation of our world, it's not even the only one. This isn't even the original reality they started in. For all we know the execution chambers are as common as 7-11 in their world.

Um, Time Travel totally exists in Rick and Morty. It's just not something Rick himself can do. The testicle monsters from season 2 are centered on Time Travel. It's like their entire thing. And they are shown time traveling. Both forwards and backwards.
Nathan Anderson
Nathan Anderson - پیش 17 ساعت
they are 4th dimensional creatures, which means they exist outside of time itself. and thats the only time actual time travel is shown, every rick and morty on the citadel is the exact same age. the only things that come close are the time crystal from the 4th dimension can stop time (and just that almost ripped them appart), and there are things that can slow time, and slowing time is a real thing that can happen, unlike time travel
