"Parks and Recreation" has been on a pretty strong run for its past several episodes, but "Ron and Diane" was perhaps the most consistently laugh-out-loud funny episode the show has done this season.

The fact that it also mixed in some pretty solid character-based stories made it that much better.

By deploying a couple of strong recurring characters -- including Ron's sax-playing alter ego, Duke Silver -- and reminding us why Jerry doesn't let all the abuse he takes at work bother him, "Ron and Diane" hit a lot of great notes for these people. The show also pulled a nice twist by having Diane feel less threatened by Tammy 2's pixellated come-ons than by how close Leslie is to Ron.
