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.

Is there an incorrect way to consume alcohol? How should you approach your job? Parks and Recreation has you covered.
Over the course of its seven seasons, the character-driven NBC sitcom has been laugh-out-loud hilarious. For all its gags, though, it's also been at its core about people trying to make the world a better place – in both large, small and pony-hologramming ways.
Though Parks is coming to an end on Tuesday, the residents of Pawnee, Indiana, have provided many pearls of wisdom that fans can clutch when the inevitable Recreation-al hangover hits.
Just know that, however you drink up this knowledge, you're definitely doing it right.

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.
