The producer’s cut of the Parks and Recreation series finale is now online, including the extended scene at 16:41 in the video above which details the fate of Jean-Ralphio Saperstein and his sister Mona-Lisa. Ben Schwartz, who played Jean-Ralphio, shared the clip on his Tumblr, where he yesterday shared a farewell message to the show.
It hasn’t quite hit me yet that it’s all over and I’ll never play Jean-Ralphio again. It has been such an amazing, love-filled ride. I wanted to say thank you to that perfect cast, legendary writers room, brilliant creator Mike Schur, the producers, directors, wardrobe, hair, make-up, crew, everyone who helped me out in the land of Pawnee over the past six years. I also wanted to say thank you to all of the fans. Even though Parks never had an enormous audience, the people who did watch were so amazing and creative.
Check out the clip and the full extended episode and delay officially saying goodbye to Parks and Rec for a little bit longer. Spoiler alert: Jean-Ralphio and Mona-Lisa (Jenny Slate) don’t know how not to be suspicious.
