Last year on Parks & Recreation, April and Andy threw a blow-out Halloween shindig. They remembered vampire teeth, blood capsules, and spiderwebs, but forgot to let their adorable hedgehog of a roommate Ben know they were throwing a party… April dresses as a sumo wrestler who's lost weight, Andy is an ultimate fighter, and Ben passively-aggresively refuses to dress up, though he owns a totally realistic Batman costume. The party itself has all kinds of amazing moments, but my favorite scene was at the very beginning of the episode (Meet 'n' Greet, Season 4 Episode 5). April and Andy are adorable and perfectly in character as they describe their upcoming party: Andy is giddy and goofy, while April stares menacingly at the camera. All in all, it sounds like a fantastic time — take notes! Andy: We are throwing a Halloween party at our house! It's going to be the greatest thing ever… April: Someone will die. Andy: Of fun! April: And of MURDER. Andy: There's going to be beer, pumpkins.. April: Bloody goblins. Andy: Fake ones! It's going to be awesome. We have decorations.. April: Dead people that we just murdered. Andy: Not murdered, but pictures of dead people from TV or movies.. April: Mutilated bodies. Andy: But fake ones! Candy, dancing, tequila, all kinds of food and snacks.. April: Blood orphans. Andy: No blood orphans. I… I don't know what that is. So stock up on booze, print out gruesome images from your favorite horror movies, clear space for dancing, but please… no blood orphans.
