    This was completely entertaining! I love this show.

    The dinner party combines two of our favorite things: dinner and parties. Just like Xbox pancake! :D :D

    Oh and Ron pulling out his tooth was great.

    Oh my God!
    April's reaction to Chris (Rob Lowe) dancing had me on the floor laughing.

    And Tom was a hit all episode, from fainting in the open, to being ticked off about the best man situation.

    Ron Swanson was awesome as always.

    What a great episode! I think this is my favorite show on TV right now. :up:

    Andy & April are the anti-Jim & Pam (from The Office). They crack me up. I guess the promo after Ron & Tammy Part 2 that was telling people to go to a site about Andy & April's wedding was a bigger blunder than it seemed at the time!

    I loved when Ann corrected Donna and said "I'm a nurse" and then Donna said "I don't know you." LOL

    Oh and when the new guy said "no, I don't know how I'm going to die. Wait, are you asking me or telling me? :eek:" I cracked up.

    People's...
    Do I have to repeat again that Ron Swanson is awesome sauce? Creepy Guy was hilarious. I can't help comparing this episode to the Office wedding episode and this blows its doors off. April's sister is even more surly. :)

    April tearing up at her sister's "touching" speech :eek:

    "Julia Roberts? That toothy girl from 'Mystic Pizza?'" :D

    "They're still together, you owe me $20..." ...Ron, ever the romantic.:D :p

    Parks and Rec is really top notch this season.

    Yeah, it never really grabbed me before, but since it's return, the writing seems to have really improved a lot! And the new characters really help the show. :up:

    Agreed, totally. I never really dug this show, although I watched it.

    This season has really gotten me. I'm a fan! It's very enjoyable.

    Still not my favorite of the evening (that'll probably always be 30 Rock), but definitely something I look forward to.

    I had killed the SP in the middle of season 1. Came back to it because people on TCF were saying how great it is. I totally agree. This show is now easily one of the best.

    I loved all of the scenes with Ann and Donna in the bar, but the line that really cracked me up was when Donna asked Ann "Are you Nell......from the movie Nell".

    I'm just glad that they dropped (although rather abruptly, it seemed) the whole "Leslie is going to stop the wedding" angle.

    If anything, April seemed way happier and nicer in this episode than ever before. It was an interesting change. I liked that she told Leslie that she liked her.

    He should have followed that with, "Hey, that's a new name for our band!"

    I can do one better; I have actually eaten there (and the only reason there were any vegetables anywhere near my food was, it's hard to make decent pizza sauce without tomatoes).

    I was a little surprised they went through with the wedding (and then they didn't find some way to invalidate it) - surprise weddings are usually saved for sweeps periods.

    If "P&R" had premiered in the fall, this episode probably would have ended up during February sweeps. But since it didn't start until midseason, things are a little out of whack.

    That's awesome!

    P.S. Tomato is not a vegetable ;)
