Andy just kills me every time: "Just let me wolf down this peanut brittle real quick." "Do I just strip down to my underwear or all the way naked?" REALLY glad they didn't have that guy who yells everything on--I despise his character.

That fall off the monkey bars was impressive.

@ The question about the mud in Predator, and any other questions directed towards Ron.

I'm surprised Leslie had to struggle for one thing in common with Tweep, they both slept with Mark Brendanawicz!

I mentioned that to my wife and her response was "Who?" Despite the fact that he was a main cast member for the first two seasons (and my recounting of his storylines) she could not remember him.

In her defense, he was a pretty bland, forgettable character.

Anyone who loves the show now is blocking him from our memories. Man, the first season of this show was awful. He was awful. Yuck.

So...Ann left the show and shows up for a guest appearance 3 episodes later? Sorta cheapens the goodbye.

I did think the Gerry hating was getting old, so Ben standing up for him was good, Andy/Ron stuff was fun too.

They're making Andy too retarded to function in day-to-day life. Makes no sense that Leslie is supposed to be a great leader and and efficient government employee when there's one employee who does nothing (Ron) and another who must be totally inept at his job (Andy). I know - it's just a show.

Yeah, given the premise, there are a lot of weird things like that. For example despite Ron's extreme degree of privacy, he agrees to be filmed at all times (including as Duke Silver). He also trashes the saxophone and hat AT WORK, and in this episode, gladly assisted in providing confidential information to doctors, when previously he would reveal as little as possible.

The whole office was hired by Ron to be inefficient. Leslie just did pretty much everything herself.

Andy getting "Homer Simpsoned" made him bearable after the first two Blandanowitz seasons made him pretty much unbearable. Sure he's a caricature, but so are most of the characters, heck the entire town is, and that's usually what brings the funny.

What's funny is that his character is still in Pawnee, it's not like he moved away, just took another job.
