This was a very funny episode of the show. It was themed around Jerry who was retiring. It was practically his last day at the office but no one knew that he was going away for good. Leslie on her part decided to start the crusade of making sure that all of Jerry’s unfulfilled dreams came true.
Jerry has a unique place within City Hall’s Parks Department and the big question of who will be replacing him i.e. becoming the new Jerry became a quite theme. At some point, it looked like the scepter was going to fall on Tom and he was having none of it. Jerry is the person that everyone picks on and his last day at the office made him out of reach because Leslie and Ben had brought him under their wings.
The rest of the guys immediately started looking for the next person they can all begin to pick on and all it took was a typical Jerry-lie move or two from Tom to make them settle for him. They then spent the rest of the day teasing him to death and to the point of frustration. If nothing else he got to know how Jerry really felt.
Tom in desperation started looking for someone that could take that tag off him. He zeroed in on the new intern and tried to pin the Jerry tag on him but the guy turned out to be someone everyone genuinely liked. He was cool and Donna was especially taken to him. It did not take long afterwards for Tom to accept his fate that he was now the new Jerry in the office.
Meanwhile, Leslie’s quest to make all of Jerry’s professional dream come true in a day did not start the way she planned it. He was denied the chance of eating at the executive dining hall simply because he came at the wrong day. They only allow guests on Wednesdays. The next wish he had was to meet a former mayor. He was late in this one as well because the mayor was already dead but he consoled himself with a visit to his graveside.
Meanwhile Chris and Ann were almost done with their baby plans but they ran into a hitch when the doctor asked them to make a deposit. They had not planned for this and were not even expecting it to happen that day. They left to go find a quite place to talk things over. But it looks as if they won’t need to go the artificial way after what they did at Ann’s place.
In the end, Jerry did not fully retire as he would be coming to work like once a day while the new intern had to go. It was an interesting episode.
