Ron and Andy: A
An excellent mix of adorable, realistic and hilarious, this whole subplot was one of my favorites in a long time. As I say pretty much every week, Chris Pratt is ridiculously funny, but we also got to see Ron participate in government in his own way without it being the same song and dance we’ve seen a million times from him. I love the addition of Lucy Lawless, and the fact that her character is a middle school vice principal who doesn’t fool around. The princess stuff was fantastic, and the reveal that Andy wrote Ron’s office address in pink chalk of the pothole definitely was so sweet.
Ron’s Best Line of the Night: [Trying to pretend he doesn’t want to impress Diane by letting the girls cover him in makeup]: “Why would that matter?… shut up!”
Andy’s Best Line of the Night: I liked the gum in his hair, but the obvious choice is “Ron and Dianne sitting in a tree. K-i-s-s-i-s-s-i-p-p-i… do you hear that bird?”

I met Amy [Poehler] in the early ’90s and she is like a superhero mixed with both Coach and Tammie Taylor from FNL, as well as Tim Riggins and a little Landry.

Chris and Ron: A-
Look, we’ve seen them do this bit before — but as I’ve already mentioned, it’s been a while since “Lucky”, and I was all for Ron giggling over how much he hates government while drooling over the “hot spinning cone of meat in that Greek restaurant next door” as Chris battled his season-long depression. I was completely caught off-guard when the guy from the Greek place ran past them and said “excuse me, ladies,” and watching them bond for a minute was very sweet. For the record, I am totally down with drinking wheatgrass and whisky while playing a game of Cranium with these two.
