    Yet another good one. Loved Tom as the fat angel baby and how annoyed he was at everybody laughing at him :D

    When Andy finally caved at the Bed, Bath & Beyond at the "As Seen on TV" stand.

    Great episode.

    But last week's might have been my all time favorite.

    When you combine it with his realization at the end that the centaur version of him has no genitals, a riot.

    This ep had me crying I was laughing so hard, basically from the moment Leslie saw the painting and on. So much good stuff.

    I also liked how Leslie begged and begged (and begged) Ron to do the opening speech at the art opening. And the actual speech was pure Ron Swanson.

    I was laughing out loud at the entire episode.

    Everything about the painting was funny. Especially Tom being a fat baby.

    And everything about Andy and April was funny too.

    Ron's speech was classic. Exactly what he would say in that situation.

    Adam Scott's delivery of those lines was perfect.
    And I liked how he was trying to and not to sneak a peak at the painting.

    What can't that centaur-woman do?
    ...besides ride an escalator or drive a car? :D:p

    Yes. He is so cute. :p

    Normally I get the annoyed at the "will they or won't they" storylines but Ben and Leslie are so cute at trying to be nonchalant around each other, I'm enjoying this one so far. Although I was cringing for Leslie having to stand there and hear Chris try to set Ben up with other chicks.

    Chris continues to make me laugh, but I'm glad he isn't overused. It actually surprises me that Rob Lowe is happy to be a supporting player b/c he has a reputation for being a pita about those kind of things.

    Funniest episode of P&R yet!

    Andy and April are awesome!

    I loved how, apparently, just before they went through the checkout with the "As Seen on TV" stuff, they actually decided to get the "boring" stuff on the list, with only one extravagance: the marshmallow shooter.

    The utter lack of respect everyone shows for Jerry makes me cringe.

    Ron's speech truly had me laughing out loud. (I bet Leslie never asks him to make one again!)

    Wow, every character is just hitting their stride. I think Adam Scott/Ben is a great replacement for Paul Schneider/Mark, acting both as the straight man and the object of Leslie's attraction. The balance a checkbook/open a banking account lines had me laughing out loud.

    I must say, April was just annoying in the beginning, but she is becoming my favorite character.

    Loved Robe Lowe's line on the telephone, something along the lines of

    My heart is literally racing. It is going like 45 beats a minute.

    Really. I LOL'd at that too.

    I don't think my heart will ever beat that slowly again, until I'm dead.

    It'll never beat my favorite episode, the Flu episode (that was so much awesome). But this wasn't bad.

    Ron Swanson is just a great character.
