"Parks and Recreation" ends its six-week hiatus Thursday, and NBC hopes to remind viewers of what they've been missing by releasing a gag reel from the show's third season DVD.

The gag reel starts off with a scene in which manly man Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) freaks out his co-workers by attacking an aching tooth with a pair of pliers. Offerman likewise surprises his co-stars with what comes out of his mouth during filming.

Later in the clip, Offerman sets off a chain reaction by laughing during Knope's (Amy Poehler) speech about beloved mini-horse Lil' Sebastian, and Rob Lowe gets in a naughty joke while his character, Chris, talks about … waffles?
