2. Treat Yo Self

Depressed Ben or Single Ben or really any Ben when he is upset about Leslie is sad to us all. So when Donna and Tom found him sitting on a bench alone, they brought him to their annual ‘Treat Yo Self’ day.

What you do on this wonderful holiday is you just simple treat yourself. That shirt you wanted that was too expensive? It’s not too expensive on Treat Yo Self day. And for Ben, his big spending was honestly so perfect for him and awesome.

Ben wasn’t really enjoying the day so Tom and Donna made him admit the one thing he really wanted to blow big money on without looking back. Can you guess what it is? No? Well, it is a movie accurate Batman suit from the Christian Bale Batman trilogy.

No, really. And he wears it frequently throughout the episode. He wears it and cries in the mall and then he wears it around his apartment with April and Andy to help fix the wi-fi router. Basically, Ben Wyatt is Batman and he is just protecting the citizens of Pawnee, Indiana.

But really, the show created this wonderful holiday for us all to enjoy and who knows! Maybe people went out and bought their own Batman costumes.
