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.

[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.
