So something about this scene has always bugged me. Is the scene implying that the Lighthouse Keeper guy is being unreasonable in his reaction to Morty's criticism to his "tale"? It would seem so, but Morty actually did think the story was terrible and the criticism Morty gave was fake. Just Morty trying to be polite.
So, was the Lighthouse Keeper's reaction actually unreasonable? Or did he just see through Morty's dishonesty to his real feelings about it?

yes, and he didn't want to really listen to it in the first place.

guy was just to sensitive.
which is sad cause he wanted criticism, but in the end he couldn't handle it.

morty didn't like it, but he did give a legit criticism to the scene he felt was an overplayed trope, then some unknown reason the guy got piss even though he wanted the criticism, which led to morty insulting him
because the writer suddenly try to go back on his deal.

I think Morty's reaction at the end was both reasonable and justified.

I know the purge etc, etc.
Still I prefer the tie up and gag method.

morty was trying to be polite, which is fair in a strangers home. but then the stranger wanted him to be honest about what he thought, so morty gave an honest answer.
the lighthouse guy then immediately was defensive and couldn't take the criticism. So that wasn't cool of him at all.
however it is his property, so he does reserve the right to make them leave the house, which while crappy is fair game.
Morty killing him however wasn't cool.
i get that it was a Purge ep. and that it was technically legal. But Morty wasn't in the wrong until the murder part, at least in my perspective

I think it's mostly just a dig at the stereotypical bad author and people who say that they want sincere criticism.

well it was clear that lighthouse guy saw through his insincerity, hence why he pushed morty to be honest
but as soon as morty switched gears and gave criticism, the lighthouse guy immediately demanded morty should leave. and he shifted blame onto morty, while demanding his script was "good"
so it's both, but I still think morty was in the right, up until the murder part

You're entering a world of pain...
I think it's a bit of both.
There were many breaches of normal polite conduct in this thing.
The lighthouse guy asks Morty to listen to his tale, but tale is a misrepresentation of what it actually was.
Morty sits down and agrees to listen to it, but when the script comes out he doesn't object or say, like, maybe that's a bit much?
When the guy is done, he asks for criticism, Morty doesn't want to give it, because he doesn't want to hurt the guy, and he never promised having to give criticism in the first place.
The guy insists that he criticize his works claiming that he can take it.
Mory gives criticism, but it's not sincere, he's nitpicking one aspect to avoid the elephant in the room, he hated it, it's not his kind of thing.
The guy feels this happening, he doesn't like the nitpick, and he doesn't like the dancing around the topic.
And so forth and so forth.
The writers room obviously did their best to construct the most frustrating situation possible, because that's just funny. Both parties are messing up hugely, and taking steps towards bad interaction, and both are probably doing it out of inexperience. Morty is a teenage kid, he's a secluded author. There's not enough awareness to make the interaction go smoothly.

I like you.
You have a good perspective on both sides.>>937480
i feel the same way, about it being a joke about stereotypes of critics and writers.

I dunno, I thought his critique was him being honest, and the more extreme reaction later was a bit hyperbolic as a result of the hostile reaction of the lightkeeper.

You know he's going to pick me.
Considering them sending the rescue beacon is a life or death situation, kicking them out was actually not fair game.
It's similar to being a traveling water bottle salesman in the desert and not giving a bottle to a guy dying of thirst. It falls under the concept of good samaritan laws imo. You can't just let people die because you feel like being a dick.

Or they needed a way to force drama in an already extended scene to pad the episode out so Morty had an excuse to kill someone with no likeability.
God that post is such a clusterfuck of wrong words. I hate you autocorrect on my phone!
north = morty
