While much of the main cast was off trying to prove Leslie was born in Pawnee, as she states in her book, three of them were left behind at the office on 'Parks & Recreation' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). April and Ron have a great office relationship -- she's like the pupil he never knew he wanted -- but neither of them have every really connected with April.

Ron Swanson Is No Longer His Own Man on 'Parks & Recreation' (VIDEO)

Ron Swanson is one of the manliest men to ever appear on television. His mustache alone has become the stuff of TV legend, which made his transformation on this week's 'Parks & Recreation' (Thu., 8:30PM ET on NBC) all the more tragic. For the second time in series history, an ex-wife named Tammy has proven able to completely transform his behavior. Only this time, she completely emasculated him. First of all, Ron without a mustache is a frightening thing to behold, but then he passed on yelling about government spending?

'Parks and Recreation': Nick Offerman talks Tammys (and woodworking)

A big piece of the Ron Swanson puzzle gets filled in on Thursday's (Sept. 29) "Parks and Recreation," and who better to explain it than the man himself, Nick Offerman.Thursday's episode is called "Ron and Tammys," and we'll meet all three of the women named Tammy in his life. Tammy Two (Megan Mullally), we already know. She's the "raging hellcat" who was Ron's second ex-wife. We got just a brief glimpse of Tammy One (Patricia Clarkson) at the end of last week's show, but as Offerman explains in the clip above, she's a much, much different woman than Tammy Two."Tammy One ... is a much more efficient taskmaster. She rules with an iron fist," Offerman says.

Tammy One Tells Ron She's Here to Help on 'Parks & Recreation' Premiere (VIDEO)

While it took all episode to get there, we finally got the much-anticipated encounter between Ron and Tammy 1 ( Patricia Clarkson ) on the season premiere of 'Parks & Recreation' (Thu., 8:30PM ET on NBC). It was certainly worth the wait, as it sets up what's sure to be an interesting storyline. Ron Swanson is being audited. Tammy 1 gave him an envelope with IRS on it, but does that mean she was serving him the papers, or providing him the help she said she was there to give? Is she an IRS agent, or did Ron mean something else when he said she ruins lives? We'll have to wait to find out those answers, but what we don't have to wait for is to see Leslie transition from the most dedicated public servant to the most dedicated candidate in a political campaign. With Andy just hired on as her new assistant, to help around the Parks Department during her campaign, we see a recipe for disaster -- and hilarity.
