    Because we could all use a little happy right about now, Parenthood fans.

    1. The expert dancing on Parenthood began when we first learned the origins of Adam's (Peter Krause) legendary nickname.

    2. And when he went on to reveal the key to all good dancing.

    3. When he showed Drew (Miles Heizer) and the Parenthood audience that it's all in the arms and hips.

    Note the smooth jacket toss.

    4. And that an open mouth really helps augment the moves.

    5. Of course, when he did this perfect spin.

    6. And the worm...

    7. And the cabbage patch(ish).

    8. When Kristina (Monica Potter) jumped in and showcased the art of a great tie wiggle.
