Parks and Recreation is turning 100 on Thursday, Jan. 9, and the cast is revealing all to celebrate. In a new online feature, the cast of Parks and Rec looks back on their past 100 episodes and share their favorite moments, scenes, lines and everything in between.

Plus, there's a song-and-dance number from Perd Hapley! We know, we had you at Perd Hapley.

Series star Amy Poehler revealed one of her favorite moments was during Leslie Knope's campaign for city council. It involved an ice rink, a Gloria Estefan song and a three-legged dog. Yep, that "Comeback Kid" scene.

"I have so many favorite moments in the last 100 episode. I'm a sucker for all group scenes obviously," Poehler said in the above video, first posted by BuzzFeed. "We were exaggerating slipping a little bit, but Chris Pratt actually really did slip and hurt himself because he refused to listen to everybody's safety advice. But us trying to get on the podium we shot for hours and laughed every time really, really hard. That was superfun."

Nick Offerman loved the first "Ron and Tammy" episode where he starred opposite his real-life wife, Megan Mullally.  He called their wild lovemaking scene a "personal triumphant."

Rob Lowe enjoyed saying, "Stop. Pooping" and Adam Scott loved working with Kathryn Hahn and Paul Rudd during Leslie's campaign.

And who could forget "Treat Yo' Self," the best day of the year! Aziz Ansari said that episode with Retta, where their characters Tom and Donna go on a shopping spree, is one of his favorite moments. As for Retta, she enjoyed the opossum on Chris Pratt's neck. Pratt enjoyed seeing the Grand Canyon with Aubrey Plaza. Plaza refused to answer the questions and would only be interviewed in a tree.

And those moments are just the tip of the iceberg. The cast reveals more, including details on Ben and Leslie's proposal scene, the flu episode and Ben's stage freight.

Parks and Rec returns with its 100th episode on Thursday, Jan. 9, at 8:30 p.m. on NBC.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal Family.)
