Rob Lowe Actually Gets Aubrey Plaza To Smile In These Parks And Recreation Bloopers

Blooper reels are usually a hit-or-miss affair. For every one gag that's actually funny, there are a dozen flubbed lines followed by profanity, or inside jokes you'd only understand if you actually worked on the show. They're at their best when they involve talented funny people going off script to try and crack their co-workers up, and thankfully there's plenty of that in this blooper real for NBC's Parks and Recreation.

My personal favorite moments? Ron Swanson's self-dentistry going horribly wrong, "What are they gonna do with the meat?" and Rob Lowe actually coaxing a smile out of Aubrey Plaza's trademark stone-face.

Parks and Recreation returns with new episodes on NBC tonight at 9:30/8:30c.
