I don't know if this episode actually had a slow start, or if it was just residual grump from last week, or a little of both, but mid-way through this episode, I felt like we were back on track. (With the exception of the Ben and April DC storyline, which continues to NOT WORK for me.) Anyway! Here are some things I enjoyed!
"DDS doesn't stand for dumb-dumb-stupid!"
"When the Ann's away, the mice get perms."
"The bill is dead, the porpoises are doomed, and democracy is over!"
"I'm a princess!" "I'm a mermaid!" "I'm the Director of Parks and Recreation. I'm here to fix that hole."
"I'm not eating a racist's salad!"
"Mmm…I can taste the ignorance." "It's pronounced anchovies."
"That large boy is my colleague."
"He shoots down a very helpful bill because he doesn't get to poop wherever he wants?! No!"
"Or does it require…two princesses?"
"My whole life is a giant mess, and I love it!"
"I'm a middle-school vice-principal—I don't screw around. Does that freak you out?" "No, to the contrary."
Of course 911 got rerouted to Jerry's phone. OF COURSE.
