Parks and Recreation: A Farewell to Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe

Rashida Jones, Rob Lowe, Parks and Recreation Danny Feld/NBC

Tonight, Parks and Recreation says goodbye to Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones. And it is literally killing us inside.

We've seen tonight's farewell episode to Ann Perkins and Chris Traeger, and we're going to use a quote from another NBC comedy alum, Michael Scott (Steve Carell), to adequately describe how we felt watching Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Ben (Adam Scott) say goodbye to their best friends:

"It feels like somebody took my heart and dropped it into a bucket of boiling tears. And at the same time, somebody else is hitting my soul in the crotch, with a frozen sledge hammer. And then a third guy walks in and starts punching me in the grief bone."

Our grief bone and our soul's crotch are certainly hurting. But we thought we'd celebrate and mourn Rob and Rashida's exit at the same time with a little ode to Chris and Ann by listing all the reasons we will miss those two crazy kids:

Why We'll Miss Ann Perkins

13. Because Ben and Chris forever.

We could talk about why we'll miss Chris and Ann all damn day, but we're already getting all choked up so we'll stop here. The point is, Parks and Rec will be just fine without Rashida and Rob, but it will not be the same.

So long, you two beautiful humans. Don't stay away from Pawnee for too long, ya hear?

What will you miss most about Chris and Ann? Besides every little thing?
