Parks and Rec

Ben Cohen/NBC

Leslie Knope is saying goodbye to her best friend, Ann Perkins, and she's doing it in true Knope style. Translation? Epic, over the top and incredibly sweet.

In E! News' exclusive first look at "Ann and Chris," Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe's last episode on the NBC sitcom, Leslie (Amy Poehler) plans the ultimate going-away party for Ann (Jones) by including every potential holiday they may be apart for. New Year's Eve, Easter, Ann's birthday, the Chinese New Year, Flag Day, Talk Like a Pittsburgh Pirate Day...the list goes on.

"Ain't no party like a Leslie Knope party because a Leslie Knope party is actually 30 parties," Leslie says.

She's truly out-Knoped herself.

Leslie's enlisted April (Aubrey Plaza) to help give Ann the ultimate present and it's not a bag full of bras, knives and loose onions.

Tune in to Parks and Rec on NBC on Thursday, Jan. 30 at 8:30 p.m. to see the big farewell. See photos from the episode below!
