Parks and Recreation Review: "Tom's Divorce"
This season of Parks and Recreation just continues to prove to be one of the best comedies on television right now. We're going to go so far as to say this week's episode beat out The Office.
The episode entitled, "Tom's Divorce," saw the end of the surprisingly fleshed out greencard marriage between Tom and Wendy. Tom tried to keep the divorce until Leslie spotted him while running an errand on the fourth floor.
Leslie forced Tom to fake heartbreak over his fake marriage only for the poor little guy to realize he really did have feels for his fake wife. It was amazing to see "Mr. Slick Too Cool" himself display some emotion. Our hat's off to Aziz Ansari for hisincredible performance.
Meanwhile, Ron Swanson continued to prove to be the man. The man who loves breakfast. Oh and every singe interaction Andy has in his jealousy over Mark and Ann? Priceless.
Now for some of our favorite Parks and Recreation quotes form this solid episode:
Leslie: That is the problem. Tom always seems like "Mr. Slick Too Cool Guy," but he's actually hiding his emotions underneath a very thick layer of Axe body spray. | permalink
Andy: Hey, Mark. The shoe shine stand still doesn't have that syphilis medication you were asking about. | permalink
April: I want to go to The Glitter Factory.
Leslie: Well, drop out of school and start doing meth. | permalink
Ron: Strippers do nothing for me. I like a strong, salt of the Earth, self-possessed woman at the top of her field. Your Steffi Grafs, your Sheryl Swoopeses, but I will take a free breakfast buffet anytime, anyplace. | permalink
