It's not rocket science. Last night the sweetest sitcom on television liquified our hearts in a bucket, poured them over a mold, cooled them in anti-freeze and forged and shaped them anew. I promised myself I wouldn't cry. I broke that promise five times. So here are 26 reasons why we love and we like this show.

Because They Were Only Supposed To Be There Eight Weeks

Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned


  • kirbyjay

    Amy and Adam are either unbelievable actors or...........

  • apsutter

    Ron's whole explanation of how he forged the rings and that it only took 15 minutes had me rolling! "People who buy things are suckers" lol

    Also Amy looked beautiful and how HOT did all the men look?! Ron, Chris, Ben..all of them looked fine. Plus they all had on the perfect tuxes that suited their personalities.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Somehow, when Leslie Knope (and by extension Amy Pohler) smiles, the whole world seem good and right.

  • TheAggroCraig

    So much to say about this episode. I could never even come close to getting to all of it. But even if I did that wouldn't matter, because close only counts in horse grenades.

  • Red Rage

    THE FEELS

  • Boothy K

    Oh, man! I laughed and cried all over again reading this recap!

  • Three_nineteen

    I've been trying to get my friend to start watching this show, and now I have the perfect in:

    "In the last episode they had a wedding, and the ringbearer was a three-legged dog, just like at your wedding!"

  • danobc

    this show proves to me again and again that despite of all that i may think, i still have a heart and it's capable of making me display emotions, or in short: the gifs make me cry, shed tears of joy and put a huge smile on my face all at the same time. Parks and Recreation is the Ann Perkins of Television.

  • Julia

    This show is my happy place and I want to live in it. It is LITrally perfect. Every single part of it. I can't even stand it.

  • Joe Grunenwald

    That dress is the best thing that Ann Perkins has ever done. No child that she has will ever be better than that dress.

  • Ahahaha, yes! The TRUTH of this comment!

  • cindy_lightballoon

    oh god I started crying again just looking at that header photo, nevermind the gifs.

  • THEY WILL BE HAPPY FOREVER *SOB*

  • Joe Grunenwald

    Me too, dammit. I HATE FEELINGS.

  • jen

    I know I'd love this show, if only because these gifs made me cry at my desk.

  • Ted Zancha

    Yeah, I loved everything about this episode. Of course they were going to get married in the Parks Office. It still didn't take away from how wonderful that moment was. This very well could have been a fitting series finale. (I'm certainly glad it's not).

    And I know that this episode was all about Leslie and Ben, but Rob Lowe kinda killed it in this episode. Not only was that an awesome speech he gave to Andy, but that talk with Ben before the wedding...just wow.

  • Rochelle

    he's been edging towards 1 dimensional this season, so it was nice to see him more complex.

  • Ted Zancha

    Agreed. I was starting to wonder why he was even on the show.

  • annoyingmouse

    My DVR recorded the first 17 minutes of the show and then stopped recording because God doesn't exist and I want to do with all of these awesome gifs and now I hate today.

  • Keljo

    I usually only lurk, but was going to post because the same thing happened to me and it pissed me off so much that I couldn't keep quiet after reading this post...sadly, I see I'm not alone. Freaking technology...I assume it was a DirecTV problem, as that is my satellite provider.

  • Ben

    just grab it on a torrent and pretend you're living somewhere else besides america,

  • pajiba

    Weird! Mine stopped recording after exactly 17 minutes, as well. Fortunately, I was watching it live.

  • Arran

    Sean O'Neal from AV Club tweeted that the exact same thing happened to him. 17 minutes. WHAT IS GOING ON.

  • It's either aliens or ghosts, but if we explain it, it won't be interesting anymore.

  • It was a 5-kleenex affair.

    It was the sweetest thing I've ever sen on TV, and it was so fucking perfect.

    That conversation they had outside the office with Ron? Jesus.

    Also: Amy Poehler looked stunning all through the episode, no? Rip out my heart.

  • Boothy K

    I know, she was glowing.
