The writers couldn't have known how timely Leslie's warning to "stay away from John Mayer" would end up being this week. That was a lucky break.

The "most romantic story ever told" about Leslie's mother meeting the lifeguard ending with "six months later, she met my father" was awesome.

So much depth and character work this week.

April's growth where she sees the Parks and Rec group as her real friends, her softening and her sentimentality showing, her making moves toward Andy, cockblocking (not the right term) Ann, and finally breaking up with her gay boyfriend only made her dreamier.

Andy and his band Mouserat were just awesome. Everything Andy related was awesome.

Ann finally started to realize what I've thought about her and Mark since they got together - they are one boring ass couple. I did like that among Mark's barrage of cliched Valentine's Day gifts, he gave her the Heart of the Ocean.

They resolved Tom and his ex-wife but more importantly, Tom and his man crush on Justin continues, even after Leslie realized Justin is a selfish douche and dumped him. (Man, do I miss Louis CK.)

The regular crew is so good, they didn't even really need John Larroquette nervously puking every few minutes. He'll always be Dan Fielding to me.

And a DUKE SILVER reference!

I thought the exact same thing.

Ron F'ing Swanson's character-sizing-up of Justin was amazing.

Mouse Rat sounded good rockin' up the olde standards.

I love how Tom kept asking questions of Leslie's now ex boyfriend, like he was a kid of two divorcing parents.


Ron Swanson is cool as hell. So smooth, and the way he blew those two old ladies off was great.

Tom asking for alimony was great too.

Sure did. They can play my wedding or semi-formal functions anytime.

Just like Duke Silver, Mouse Rat has a website!

My fav part was Andy threatening the man who just wanted his shoes shined.
