'Parks and Recreation': Watch Chris and Ann try to make a baby

Posted on

Of the many ways to make a baby, former lovers Chris (Rob Lowe) and Ann (Rashida Jones) have chosen the one that involves the least amount of sex. In Thursday’s episode of Parks and Recreation (NBC, 9 p.m.), Chris helps Ann move one step closer to realizing her dream of being with child when they visit a fertility clinic, where Chris will need to, you know, provide a sample.

Check out the clip below to see how this non-couple (who are getting back together at one point, right?) handle the big moment. Elsewhere in the episode, Leslie (Amy Poehler) discovers that Jerry (Jim O’Heir) is retiring, and Tom (Aziz Ansari) now fears that he will become the split-pants butt of all jokes in the office.

If 30 minutes of Parks isn’t enough for you, you’re in luck: A second episode airs at 9:30 p.m., in which Patton Oswalt guest-stars as a strict constructionist who objects to Leslie’s attempt to make some changes to the outdated town charter.
