  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Ben: Chris and I used to do auditing separately. Whenever Chris would do it, nothing would ever get it done. Whenever I would do it, I'd get death threats. It seems to work this way.

    • Leslie: Hello, Pawnee. I'm...Renata Ricotta. Freddy Spaghetti couldn't make it today. He bumped his noodle. (audience laughter) There was sauce everywhere. It was just streaming out of his face. It was really scary.

    • Andy: (about his fractured arm) Uh, is there any chance you can fix me in the next ten minutes?
      Dr. Harris: Sure. I'll just advance medical science 30 years.
      Andy: Great.

    • Andy: I don't even have children's songs. My last song I wrote was called "Sex Hair."
      Leslie: Well, just take the word sex and change it to pickle.
      Andy: (singing) You've got Pickle hair, baby and you got it from me.

    • Ron: (to Ben) Because of my libertarian beliefs, Leslie does 95% of the work. So you should lay me off. I'd be proud to be a casualty in this righteous war.

    • Andy: Give me a sec. Will you just stop and listen to me?
      April: No.
      Andy: Fine, I don't want to talk to you anyways. Reverse psychiatry.
      April: Fine. What?
      Andy: I like you. In a, you know, romantical kind of way.
      April: You do?
      Andy: Yes! Do me?
      April: Yes.
      Andy: Ha! So then...perhaps shall we go out this evening?
      April: No.

    • Chris: I know what'll loosen up our brains. A massage train. And I know what you're thinking. It's not that I want a massage. I'll be the caboose. And Ron Swanson is the locomotive.

    • Tom: (whispering) What are you doing here?
      Leslie: Hey, sorry. I need your help. Is this a bad time?
      Tom: Lucy's here, I'm in my sexy pajamas, I just took four benadryls to dull my sensitivity. Yes! It is a bad time.
      Leslie: You're about to have sex.
      Tom: Why else would Boyz II Men's "On Bended Knee" be playing right now?
      Leslie: Okay, I just want to give you a little advice, which is don't make it last really long. Ladies don't like that.

    • Leslie: How could you quit?
      Mark You know, not everyone has your enthusiasm for this work.
      Leslie: You know, I guess I've been mispronouncing your name all these years. Mark Brendana-quits.

    • Ann: Traditionally, when I end a long-term relationship, I'm a little fragile. And I have a tendency to do some reckless things. So I need to stay way from Chris.

    • Ben: Your department, all the way down here, is not a priority. And, frankly, you're not even supposed to be in the building, Leslie. You're non-essential.
      Leslie: That is not your call.
      Ben: I know. It's on your badge.

    • Ben: (About Leslie) What a surprise. The government has been shut down for two days. And one city employee has tried to schedule 14 meetings with me. Can you guess who?

    • Andy: Ron!
      Ron: Hello, Andy.
      Andy: It's quiet in here. Where is everyone?
      Ron: The government has shut down. It's in every newspaper
      How long is it gonna last?
      Ron: Well, if we're lucky, this building will be empty for months
      Andy: (outside) Wow. That is really bad timing. I just got his super-sweet-ass rad crotch rocket. I've always wanted one of these! But due to, you know, never having a job, I couldn't afford it until now. Got a really good deal on my lease. Paying like 12% interest. That's like one of the highest you can get.

    • Deb: School is out in two weeks. What am I going to do with my kids all day? Keep them in my house? Where I live?

    • Chris: I have run 10 miles a day, every day, for 18 years. That's 65 thousand miles. A third of the way to the moon. My goal is to run to the moon.

    • Chris: Ann Perkins!
      Ann: Chris...something.

    • Ben: Idaho cut their parks department by 80 percent. And Idaho is basically one giant park.

    • Guy: With the government shut down, who's going to stop Al Qaeda?

    • Tom: Ron Corleone! This really attractive woman is my girlfriend, Lucy.
      Ron: Hello Lucy.
      Lucy: Hi. (shakes Ron's hand)
      Ron: Whoa! Impressive handshake.
      Lucy: Thanks. My father told me that a limp handshake was for weak men and communists. He hated both.
      Ron: Well done, Tommy.

    • Ron: There are plenty of other options. For example, sell the zoo animals.
      Ben: Okay. To whom?
      Ron: Cosmetics labs... weird restaurants... I'm just spit-ballin' here.

    • Andy: I called you a cajillion times. Why didn't you call me back?
      April: Oh, I'm so sorry. I was too busy not wanting to talk to you.

    • Ron: I am an official member of a task force dedicated to slashing the city budget. Just saying that gave me a semi.

    • Mark: Recently, I had been thinking about leaving this job, but felt like I needed a sign. And then Ann broke up with me the week that I was going to propose; the government got shut down; and yesterday, one of those pigeons took a **bleep** on me and I was indoors, sooooo....

    • Tom: Ron Corleone! This really attractive woman is my girlfriend, Lucy.
      Tom calling Ron "Ron Corleone" is a reference to Vito and Michael Corleone (both called Don Corleone) of The Godfather and The Godfather II films.
