Due to Bob Parr's constant need to help others like in the old days, resulting in trouble, Rick had to pay people to keep things quiet, erase memories and relocate the Parrs, so much that it was getting very exhausting and too expensive for the government. When Bob accidentally threw his boss through five walls who refused to help a mugged victim just outside the building where Bob worked, Rick had no choice but to leave Bob to fend for himself. But he did offer one last chance for relocation, which Bob turned down.
When Bob and his family defeated the Omnidroid v.10, Rick drove them home, informing them that they've frozen Syndrome's assets and the government would arrest him if he appears anywhere. Bob asks if the Supers can come out of hiding; Rick says the politicians will figure that out but says they did a good job.
In the short movie, Jack-Jack Attack, Rick was interrogating Kari McKeen, who was looking after Jack-Jack Parr. She had a bad time trying to look after him when his powers awoke. She eventually got fed up when Syndrome arrived, claiming to be the replacement babysitter. Rick asks her if she told anyone; she did tell her parents but they thought she was joking. She really wanted to forget everything, in which Rick was glad to do, placing a plunger on her head to suck her memory.
He strongly resembles and could be based on the former US President, Richard Nixon.
