'Parks & Recreation': Chris Decides He's Ready To Father A Child With Ann (VIDEO)

Chris finally made his big decision on "Parks & Recreation." He was incredibly anxious about the idea of fathering a child with Ann, but after mentoring Tom for the episode, he decided he was ready. He came to this conclusion despite the fact that his mentoring didn't turn out great. Rather than fire his terrible employee, played by Jenny Slate, Tom started a dysfunctional relationship with her.

But Tom was realistic about what was happening and just looking to have a good time. Plus, he was appreciative of Chris' help. And that was enough to convince him that he was ready to bring a child into the world.

"I guess your uter-u, and my uter-me are now our uter-us," Chris told Ann.

"Don't make me change my mind," she responded.

The AV Club loved the "unexpectedly sweet" moment, but HitFix was left wondering if that was what she wanted. Chris had told Ann he was ready to be a parent, but a few episodes ago, she was just wanting a sperm donor. Is she looking for an active co-parent in raising the child?

Find out as the plot moves forward on "Parks & Recreation," Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
