Last night, the cast of Parks and Recreation reunited for a much-anticipated special. Set in our perplexing present, A Parks and Recreation Special featured Leslie Knope and company reconnecting via video chats. It offered good vibes and good advice to all of us stuck at home. Plus, the whole event is a fundraiser for Feeding America.

It was a big night full of big moods, big emotions, and a tribute to Li’l Sebastian. Here’s how Twitter reacted to A Parks and Recreation Special.

Paul Rudd opened the special, reprising his role as the dunderheaded Bobby Newport.

Then Adam Scott fed our thirst for Sad Ben Wyatt popping up in the shut-in style that drove us all wild back in the day…and still does.

Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) used a phone tree to reach out to friends, including Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman), April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza), Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt), Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari), Donna Meagle (Retta), Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones), Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe), and Gary Gergich (Jim O’Heir). It all gave fans the feels.

There were also appearances from several of beloved tertiary characters! Mo Collins was back as Joan Callamezzo, a now totally stir-crazy talk show hostess.

Jason Mantzoukas returned as perfume magnate Dennis Feinstein.

Jay Jackson appeared as Perd Hapley, Pawnee’s greatest anchorman.

Jon Glaser showed up as Jeremy Jamm, D.D.S.

Megan Mullally dropped in as Tammy Two.

And then. THEN. There was Jean-Ralphio (Ben Schwartz), the madman who set Twitter on fire.

Also sad: there was no Jenny Slate appearing as Jean-Ralphio’s horrible sister Mona-Lisa.

Then came the finale, during which A Parks and Recreation Special broke and healed us.

You can watch A Parks And Recreation Special on NBC’s website.
