Amy Poehler's wonderful Parks and Recreation ended its seven-season run on NBC Tuesday night with an hour-long finale that wasn't strictly necessary: The season had been so good – and so good at building to this goodbye – that the show seemed to have already sneaked out of the room during a game of peek-a-boo.
You took your hands away from your eyes and realized the room was suddenly empty.
At which point you began to cry.

After seven brilliant seasons, Parks and Recreation airs its final episode on Tuesday night.
Though often overlooked despite its longevity and critical acclaim, the writers – with showrunner Mike Schur at the helm – created a rich universe filled with well-rounded characters whose quirks were celebrated often in the form of joke callbacks that were as hilarious on the second, third and 10th time they were told as they were the first.
In advance of the series finale, we thought we'd revisit seven of the best recurring jokes on Parks.

[BRIGHTCOVE "20902901" "" "peoplenow"] Following a possible overdose, Harris Wittels was found dead in his Los Angeles home on Thursday night, reports Entertainment Weekly. He was 30.
At the Unite4:Humanity event in Beverly Hills on Thursday, Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler paid homage to Wittels during her acceptance of the unity award: "So, here's my daily life – today, I lost a friend. I lost a dear, young man in my life who was struggling with addiction and died. Just a few hours before we came," she said.
"Jane [Aronson] and I sat and talked about it. I'm sharing it with you because life and death live so close together and we walk that fine line every day and at the end of the day when things happen in our lives, we turn to people that we love, and we look to our family and our community for support, and we lean on people in a hope that they will ease our pain," Poehler finished.

Now that Parks and Recreation and David Letterman's reign on the Late Show are nearing their respective ends, a beautiful friendship has blossomed.
When Aubrey Plaza stopped by Letterman's show on Tuesday, the host, 67, asked what she's going to do now that the show has wrapped. "I have no plan. At all," she deadpanned. "I was thinking of gaining skills – survival skills. Marksmanship, maybe."
Plaza, 30, then turned Letterman's own question on him: "What are you going to do when your show's over?"
"As I was asking you that question," admitted Letterman, "I realized I don't have an answer either."
