Before Chris Pratt was the ripped action movie star who saves the day in movies like Guardians of the Galaxy and the Jurassic Park sequel, he was the bumbling and hilarious Andy Dwyer in the forever beloved TV comedy, Parks and Recreation.
While the end of the series left a gigantic Pawnee-sized hole in the hearts of millions of viewers, the finale was even more devastating for the stars who made us laugh weekly.
And the pain is still clearly felt, two years later.
In the scene, Andy gets stuck in one of the imaginary scenarios that frequently occupy his mind, spiraling into a dramatic and cinematic tangent that has nothing to do with the IRL situation in front of him. It’s glorious.
The scene is during Ben’s bachelor party, before he marries our queen, Leslie Knope — and the party originally for Ben evolves into numerous bachelor parties for Andy, Ron Swanson, Tom Haverford, and Jerry Gergich. The painfully optimistic and health-conscious Chris Traeger, portrayed perfectly by Rob Lowe, is the only one in the group who hasn’t been married.
The guys decide to celebrate a bachelor party for Chris anyway — celebrating the woman he will marry in his future and the best man he is today. The friends imagine who Chris will marry, when Andy awkwardly and hilariously wonders if he’ll marry April (Andy’s wife) following a dramatic and fictional sequence of events.
Andy continues to bring the story to a shocking climax as the rest of the guys try to change the subject. It’s incredible — watch the whole thing.
UGHHHHH WE MISS THEM <3
