She is my favorite side character on that show. They should permanently get rid of Ralphio and give all of his wasted screentime to her.

That used to be funny 10 years ago when she was doing it in her standup routine.


/it still is funny, but it used to be too.

My wife complains about Ralphio all the time. It's like he serves no purpose.

This was actually the first time I ever realized that was her on Parks and Rec. I read TFA and was like "hey, I think I saw a sassy fat black woman doing a standup routine about exactly that a decade or so ago..." and then it hit me.

Jean-Ralphio is barely on there anymore; what are you guys complaining about?

His purpose was to help define and evolve Tom's character. I can't see him adding anything more in that role at this point, so I'd be surprised to see him again outside of very brief appearances.

I agree. His character fulfilled his purpose when Tom fired him from Rent-a-Swag (which in turn impressed Ron).

I have to admit it.

Ralphio grew on me. Now I like his appearances.

So this lying coont can hear what the "racist" old couple are saying.. but they strangely enough can't hear anything but the bass?

It appears that we are in the minority. I thought when he was first introduced it was a stroke of cinematological (yeah, I think I made it up) genius. His character's role started to get a bit forced towards the end of his run, but it was still funny nonetheless.

/Snake Juice, biatches!

Scalia: "The Court today pretends that it possesses a similar freedom of action, so that that we need not fear judicial imposition of homosexual marriage."

So, applying the 13th and 14th Amendments through judicial review of laws is imposing homosexual marriage. Brilliant mind for a bigot.

He might be gone; Tom's realization that he's just a giant f*ck-off when he was planning Rent-a-Swag may have been the nail in their relationship;s coffin.

Forty-Two: I agree. His character fulfilled his purpose when Tom fired him from Rent-a-Swag (which in turn impressed Ron).


Or what this guy said.

That is a weak spot in the story, although she no doubt could see the derisive look being shot her way. It isn't like it is a very rare reaction, honestly.

Jean Ralphio is hilarious but I cant stand them calling him John.

This. This story is just an excuse to show how she can sing some opera then follow it up with a stereotypical sassy black woman "biatch" comment.

If her base is blaring she deserves it.

You can claim that it all is belong to you, but you and I both know that someone set us up the bomb.

On a serious note, I never liked the "buzzing trunk full of cans for recycling" sound that was popular in the 90s before car stereo tech caught up with demand.

People who sound attractive and successful are often perceived to be attractive and successful, at first look.

None of yer jowl-wagging, sport. That dame's the bee's knees. I'd bet a shiny nickel on it.
