This is exactly why I've been holding out and grading so harshly these past few weeks: "Pawnee Rangers" nailed every single character -- I even laughed at Ann's dialogue! Instead of literally giving every single Pawnee resident an A, let's switch things up with a Parks and Recreation badge ceremony.
Badges: Lab Rat Tumor Knowledge Badge, Retroactively Accepting Invitations Badge, Uncomfortably Forward Badge, Literal Facebook Likes Badge, Kale Salad Passing Badge, Most Promising Storyline of a Minor Character Badge
Best moment of the night: Not used to hornball Chris, and I've got to say that I'm a big fan. I laughed out loud when he startled Jerry.
Badges: Forgotten Pawnee Ranger Badge, Respectful Dad Badge, Tender Hug Enjoyer Badge, Horrified Face Badge
Best moment of the night: Anyone else feel a sense of joy to find out that Jerry's daughter Millicent is a stone-cold fox? It was not unlike the scene in "I'm Leslie Knope" when we learned that the old man is well-endowed. Sure, they're cheap little additions to his character that don't actually matter, but go Jerry!
Badges: Brother Nature Badge, Glorious Female Warrior Badge, First Annual Leslie Knope Remote Control Speedboat Race Winner Badge (probably)
Best moment of the night: If you didn't catch it the first time, go back and watch him give his Goddess initiation pledge. His facial expressions are glorious.
Badges: Violent Tattoo Badge, Creative Tattoo Badge, Best Performance for One Minute of Screentime Badge
Best moment of the night: Her laptop's background image... aww.
Badges: Corn Husk Monster Badge, Warmth Provider Badge, Rejected Peanut Brittle Badge, I Love Lucy Fan Badge, Desperate Fisherwoman Badge, Long Overdue Exploration of a Character's Inner Psyche Badge
Best moment of the night: "Feels pretty good to have a bunch of little boys be super into me... that came out wrong."
Badges: Rubber Band Outreach Badge, Fine Leather Goods Badge, Nubian Princess Badge, Acupuncture Advocacy Badge, Expensive Crystal Beetle Badge
Best moment of the night: Could Donna have killed it more in this episode? Three cheers for her fashion show with Tom and the look on her face when she saw Ben's version of treating himself.
Badges: Magnificent Entrance Badge, Selfish Cupcake Badge, Plaza Eagleton Burberry Badge (all three!), Cashmere Velvet Candy Cane Badge, Chickenhead Catching Badge, Dark Knight Quoting Badge
Best moment of the night: Three words: "Why so serious?"
Badges: Game of Thrones Fantasy-Crossover Badge, Expired Free Meatball Sub Card from Ray's Badge, Pathetic Soup Eating Badge of Sadness, Anti-Acupuncture Advocacy Badge, Rare Coin Lover Badge, Sock Bankruptcy Badge, Treat Yo Self Badge, Broken Heart Badge, Router-Adjusting Badge
Best moment of the night: If I have to pick, it was the acupuncture trembling or anything said/done in the Batman costume, but Ben's performance was simply outstanding last night.
Badges: Internet Pad Banning Badge, Handbook Writing Badge, Falling Silent at One's Own Wedding Badge, Multipurpose Canvas Sheet Badge, Beans Reward Badge, Opening Statement in a Public Forum Badge, Lonely Camper Badge, No Fun At All Badge
Best moment of the night: The tears collecting in his eyes when he read Leslie's ad for the Swansons.
Badges: Freaking Awesome Badge, Badge Hander-Outer Badge, Annabelle Van Der Graff Little Lady Badge, "Say It" Badge, International Cuisine Appreciation Badge, Creative Presentation of the Bill of Rights Badge, 70/30 Annoyed/Proud Badge, Equality Preservation Badge, Candy Selection Badge, Puppy Party Planner Badge, Ad Posting Friendship Badge
Best moment of the night: The tension between her and Little Leslie Knope Monster/ Pawnee Goddess Lauren. And she totally deserves the Prettiest Eyes Badge she awarded herself -- and then some.
