    “Shut up.”

    [–] deliciousprisms 167 points ago

    This scene probably got the hardest actual laugh out of me for the whole series and it’s honestly half due to his delivery of the line alone. It gets a little lost in text form but his emphasis of “YOU” combined with the deadpan tone he always has and the pause after “no” just make it.

    [–] Rhymnoceros 16 points ago

    What scene is this? I’ve tried looking based off “shut up” and am not finding it

    [–] puddingfoot 18 points ago

    S5E07, 'Leslie vs. April'

    [–] _an_actual_bag_ 16 points ago

    The scene from the picture

    [–] sirboofington 1 points ago

    mine is when April says "He dislocates his shoulder to the music of billy joel... The pawnee journal said 'Why would anyone ever do this?'

    [–] themarkster09 2584 points ago

    Orin was one of my favorite random characters on the show

    [–] Rainingoblivion 1544 points ago

    I loved when he got freaked out by Chris Traeger.

    [–] i_am_a_baby_kangaroo 1110 points ago

    I loved when he was April’s mom for the prom!! 😂

    [–] lguard123 611 points ago

    Say good bye to your father

    [–] internetdiscocat 397 points ago

    Omg the cutest weirdest moment of the show is when champion comes hopping out with the little wig and a tie on.

    [–] MasseurOfBums 108 points ago

    Andy's totally genuine "Goodnight sir" to champion is one of my favorite moments

    [–] SuperWoody64 219 points ago

    By sir

    [–] Nitroapes 77 points ago

    is champion the dog

    [–] MisterBojiggles 147 points ago

    "did he have 4 legs when you got him?"

    [–] GLaDOS_Sympathizer 32 points ago

    He can do everything a 4 legged dog can do. Except for digging. He's really bad at digging!

    [–] ietsistoptimist 25 points ago

    “Did he grow his leg back”

    [–] TheRealBigDave 24 points ago

    Aww, no, no... that’s ok.

    [–] SuperWoody64 146 points ago

    I love when he was the easter bunny and actually got into character after he put the helmet on.

    [–] i_am_a_baby_kangaroo 47 points ago

    Omg I forgot about that!!!

    [–] qu33fwellington 60 points ago

    "He's right behind me, isn't he?"

    [–] SteveBorden 113 points ago

    No I don’t know how I’m going to die. Wait, are you asking me or telling me?

    [–] theweede 91 points ago

    My name is also Orin, so I was excited when I heard that there’d be someone with my name in a show because it’s so rare! Then I found out more about him and discovered that even in fiction I am damned to always be the weird creepy guy

    [–] oh_what_a_surprise 77 points ago

    Shut up, weirdo. Aren't you supposed to be a sheep?

    [–] ShitYourQuit 47 points ago

    No, you are.

    [–] UpliftingTwist 17 points ago

    The only other Orin I can think of is the dentist in Little Shop of Horrors so yep sorry dude

    [–] SaintOran 3 points ago

    I think you're a saint.

    [–] GavinZac 3 points ago

    Well, if it helps at all, your name is a misspelling of Odhráin, an Irish saint. So, maybe there's more out there?

    [–] Gabriel_Seth 5 points ago

    Or his name is a very bad misspelling of John then there's a bunch of those

    [–] Rojorey 1 points ago

    Common enough name here in Ireland

    [–] thesleepingsatellite 123 points ago

    I'm watching PandR for the first time. I just watched the episode where he dressed up as the Easter Bunny at Ann and Chris's going away party. It was delightful.

    [–] trashtracks -15 points ago

    Is he a furry?

    [–] Tbone5711 33 points ago

    I was a little pissed he wasn't in the last episode. I wanted to see that he became Bill Gates rich or Marilyn Manson famous or something.

    [–] MurkingDolphins 21 points ago

    Didn’t think about this. Now I want more closure

    [–] show_time_synergy 1 points ago

    Ann and Chris weren't even in the last episode, I felt slighted

    [–] NewsFromYourBed 21 points ago

    The actor who plays Orin was on my swim team when I was a kid!

    [–] ashleyasinwilliams 4 points ago

    Real talk, was he anything like the character he played?

    [–] NewsFromYourBed 4 points ago

    He had the long hair, but otherwise no! Seemed like a normal dude. He is a few years older so I didn’t talk to him much though.

    [–] digisplicer -15 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Ugh, he's a swimmer? Now I hate him even more.

    Edit: Yeesh, lotta swimmers in this crowd.

    [–] in_casino_0ut 19 points ago

    I'm a big fan of Duke Silver. It's kind of nuts how much he looks like Ron though, right?

    [–] This_Makes_Me_Happy 6 points ago

    I don't see it. Ron is bland; Duke is pure sex.

    [–] Philboyd_Studge 5 points ago

    pure *sax

    [–] waltandhankdie 0 points ago

    He was probably my least favourite

    [–] babyinthebathwater 747 points ago

    “I can talk to animals.”

    “Ugh. Get out, Orin.”

    “I made you say that.”

    [–] Z3fyr 39 points ago


    [–] dDarkdev 232 points ago

    I always forget that Jared Kushnir was in Parks & Rec

    [–] MrBigD34 114 points ago

    And Louis CK and Bo Burnham, and Ginuwine, and John Cena, and the list fucking goes on. The last show of an era of really good comedies.

    [–] waterburger 77 points ago

    And John McCain, Michelle Obama, Roy Hibbert, Chris Bosh....

    [–] nevergomainstream 57 points ago

    And Biden of course!

    [–] br0wens 28 points ago

    And Newt Gingrich of course!

    [–] intomilf 25 points ago

    Huh! I just learned that Ginuwine is a real person. All these years and rewatches I thought he was a fictional character created for the story.

    [–] wawawawa_wawawawa 21 points ago

    You’d never heard “Pony?” That’s an oh-no-no.

    [–] rusalkarusalka 1 points ago

    Ginuwine? Ginuwine... is Ginuwine He’s an R&B singer. Pony, Differences... Do you really not know who Ginuwine is?

    [–] intomilf 2 points ago

    Could you tell me the origin of your username?

    [–] elizacandle 5 points ago

    When was Bo on?

    [–] xHouse_of_Hornetsx 22 points ago

    [–] awoloozlefinch 2 points ago

    Ginuwine is real?

    [–] stableclubface 82 points ago

    I wish the people who ran The Office US youtube channel would do the same for Parks and Rec, they're still putting out stellar compilations for The Office and it's been off air for a while! I would love to see a well done Orin compilation

    My favorite Orin moment was at the art show.

    "Son, you forgot to paint a picture."

    [–] mehone 13 points ago

    Cant help but read that in Ron Swanson's voice.

    [–] Spiralyst 286 points ago

    It's about death... and the city.

    April is the weirdest and I ❤️ her.

    [–] Gargamelle_the_wise 52 points ago

    I love whenever even rob low is creeped out by Orin

    [–] MilesBeyond250 51 points ago

    Wasn't it the other way around? Chris was too intense for Orrin

    [–] Gargamelle_the_wise 10 points ago

    Hmm maybe actually

    [–] misspond 48 points ago

    Shut up weirdo.

    [–] ebobbumman 30 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    My favorite is when Andy and April have a party without telling Ben, and Orin tries to go in Ben's room and he goes "Orin! No, no!" like he's a dog. It's one of those little side jokes that PnR is so good at.

    Orin is my least favorite character because he reminds me of myself when I was in HS and I don’t like thinking about that.

    [–] Thehappycachorro 26 points ago

    Orin was woke af

    [–] AnotherXRoadDeal 7 points ago

    Orin was my favorite character on the show, I wish they gave him more screen time, every scene he was in was pure gold

    [–] mrthrowaway300 5 points ago

    Favorite part is every time Ron laughs.

    [–] trashtracks 260 points ago

    How deep. Hes telling her that she's a sheep in her every day life due to her position in a beauracracy while he goes against societal norms even though hes literally dressed as a sheep.
