Ron Swanson: Do you fish, April?
April Ludgate: No. Fish are gross.
Ron Swanson: Let me give you a piece of fishing advice.
April Ludgate: I said I don't...
Ron Swanson: When you have a fish on the line, you don't just drag it behind the boat. You either reel it in, or you cut him loose. Especially if he's a nice fish with a big lovable fish heart.
April Ludgate: You don't know what you're talking about.
Ron Swanson: Maybe not. Maybe you really do hate Andy. Maybe moving to Indianapolis just to get revenge on him is a really good idea. What do I know?

Title: the mayor
27 June 2018 | by Brave_TraveIerSee all my reviews

This was an episode that I happened to just love and felt it deserved a 10 for Adam Scott's cringe worthy awkwardness AMD funny moments but also because of the many scenes in this episode consisting of Andy and Ron.

Keeping this spoiler free just know that this episode is in the category that keeps em coming every second.

Highlight was the end of the episode but it was well deserved after he talked to the security guard. I love Andy christ pratt is amazing.

That kiss was brilliant!
