    Parks and Recreation "Ben's Parents" Review: Family Matters

    No relationship goes untested, and this week a mountain rose up in front of Leslie and Ben that they had to scale together: Ben's parents.

  • Episode Summary

    Leslie throws an engagement party for her and Ben, but Ben is panicked about his long divorced parents being in the same room together. Leslie tries to mend old wounds with a unity quilt. As Tom tries to get Ron to invest in his new business he starts to realize he may be outgrowing Jean-Ralphio. Chris is overly emotional due to therapy and Ann tries to keep him from ruining the party.
