"Parks and Recreation" fans know just how much Ron Swanson loves woodworking: He loves it almost as much as he loves breakfast buffets featuring all the eggs and bacon one can eat. Ron's woodshop skills are partly inspired by actor Nick Offerman's love of the craft (the actor has his own woodshop), but those skills also exist because Ron is just good at everything that truly matters.
So imagine Ron's irritation when one of his troublesome Tammys (Megan Mullally) shows up at the Indiana Fine Woodworking banquet in this week's episode (Thurs., Dec. 6 at 9:30 p.m. EST on NBC), titled "Ron and Diane." It's a fancy event -- complete with an emcee who loves corny, wood-inspired jokes -- and Ron is there with his date, Diane (Lucy Lawless). He, Diane and Leslie are dying to see if Ron's nominated chair wins an awards. But Tammy 2 shows up, and as you can see in this exclusive deleted scene from Thursday's episode (above), Ron tries hard to resist the lure of her insanity.
Also guesting in Thursday's episode: Christie Brinkley, who plays Jerry's wife. Yes, Jerry's wife!
