"Listen, Rick, if you're gonna stay here rent-free and use my son for
your stupid science, the least you could do is put a little bit of it to use for the family."

It's a line from Rick and Morty 102, and I'm wondering why this man using the word 'put' instead of 'to put' or 'putting'.

Is it a simple grammar mistake or there's some grammar logic I don't know?
Please let me know. Thanks in advance :)

    The use of the infinitive without "to" is correct here. There's no mistake.

    As such, the least you can do is buy me a beer.:rolleyes:

    (Do you still have OB beer in Korea?)
