'Parks & Recreation': Chris Proposes To Ann!

Chris and Ann are burning through relationship milestones on their way to leaving "Parks & Recreation." It's just a shame they're doing it all alone. Okay, Larry aka Jerry aka Gary was on hand for the latest one, but he kind of doesn't count. That said, it was Larry who inspired Chris to propose.

“Ann Perkins, will you marry me?” he asked, just as Larry started to choke on cracker dust behind him. When he tried to take a swig of Chris' water, Chris pulled it away telling Larry he had a germ thing. That left Larry no choice but to try and cough through as Ann declared, "No part of this is how I pictured it.”

HitFix's Alan Sepinwall wishes these Ann-Chris plots were working better. "I don't want these subplots to feel as obligatory as they have of late," he noted. "I want to miss Ann and Chris, not be relieved that they're about to stop taking up valuable screen time.” The AV Club's Alasdair Wilkins agreed, wondering why they've been so alone in their scenes. "The lovebirds feel increasingly isolated from the other characters, to the point that I kind of wonder whether there are difficulties coordinating Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones’ shooting schedules with those of the rest of the cast," he wrote.

"Parks & Recreation" airs Thursday nights at 8:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
