    I hope Leslie and Ben get back together by the end of the season.

    The Leslie and Ben moment at the end showed how much this show and it's characters have evolved (it's almost like it's sucking all the creativity out of The Office), also...what's up with Rob Lowe's hair.

    It started doing that in Season 2. I was wondering what was up with his hair too...

    Loved: Leslie's rare ability to mix drama into comedy seamlessly, Toeless Cabin Swanson, shooting fish in a lake, every single thing Andy and April did and said.

    "I really want to shoot something...""Fishing it is then." Forgot the first part, loved that bit though.

    I was a big fan of the "Leslie ******* Knope" scene as well, since "Ron ******* Swanson" is such a popular line of his.

    Ron's 3 week beard was, wow!

    Leslie has a 2 year s'more supply with her at all times. I wonder how long her waffle stores would last.

    Ann just needs to get rid of that phone.

    Now that Ann is working at City Hall, all she has to do is start dating Chris again and he'll have to drop his arbitrary dating rule. Or he'll file the proper paper work to make it ok, because that's the way bureaucracies work, everything is a huge problem until you accidentally hit the answer because no one bothered to ask the right question of the one person who knows how to fix it.

    Well, somehow they topped Tammy II with Tammy I. I loved everything in this one but the Ann/Chris stuff.

    Pretty much the characters make this show. I'm kind of glad we focused on Ron and didn't have any fallout from the Leslie/Ben breakup. They seperated them and had them deal with different things, both hilarious. I love how the whole Tammy plot played out and what Leslie was willing to do to keep Ron...even if it may haved damaged some brain cells in the process. I'm beginning to think Chris is having some sort of breakdown. First there's the bad haircut but lately it seems like all his little perfection quirks are running overtime, I'm just hoping this is leading somewhere otherwise it's just making his character appear to be progressively more annoying.

    Birther jokes? How topical, still funny though. I think Ben's my favorite character now, his down to earth dorkiness is so relateable.

    I think it's kind of rotten that they made it so Leslie wasn't born in Pawnee.

    Maybe Eagleton will try to poach her now that she is rising to promanence and they can consider her "one of them."

    Overall, not too funny this week.
    I liked Ron and April getting excited about Ann's gross-out story.
    Andy was fun with his role playing.
    Ben had a few good nerd lines.

    I'm starting to wonder what Rob Lowe is doing on the show.
    He wasn't good at government talking his way to getting the birth certificate. He isn't a boyfriend for Ann. He's kind of a mess this year.

    Weird that Ann had the worst subplot last week and she gets the best one this week. Of course, this time she had the show's two best characters (Ron and April) to work off of.

    Wow, everything worked this week.
    From Tom's entrance music to Ben becoming Batman.

    Leslie's group looked awesome, with kids making Gertrude Steins.

    Did I mention how much I love Ben? Because I totally love Ben. From his "Game of Thrones" comment to the Batman costume, he's great. Outside a few of Chris's reactions to Jerry, I didn't care much for their story thread.

    I kept thinking both the guy going to the mall and the guy dating the blonde were both Rob Lowe. That made the episode so confusing.

    But I swear, they look alike!

    If I ever have a toolbox, I'm going to make sure it features a cartridge that says "Sonic" and "hedgehog" on it.
