  • Trivia

    • When Johnny is asking April to come with him, the subtitles on the screen read "I am only an intern, so my estate is not as big as those of my superiors. I must have you. Please." However, what he actually said in Spanish was "My plane leaves in 6 hours. If you're not there, I will hang myself. Come. Please."

  • Quotes

    • Elvis: We just select the woman we desire? (referring to Donna) I will take the large black one.
      Tom: Interesting choice.
      Leslie: What?
      Elvis: Did you have some kind of a book with photos of the women available to us? If not, I will also take the sexy black one.

    • Weird Woman: My dog went to one of your parks and ate another dog's feces and I'm going to sue you for that!

    • Leslie: Okay, look -- I know these guys didn't turn out to be exactly how we thought they would be.
      Leslie: You said they may not know what toilet paper is.

    • Ron: Politically, no, I don't support Chavez. I despise him and everything he does. On the other hand, this is a pretty sweet-ass gun.

    • Johnny: In Venezuela, government internships are coveted positions. You must be very well connected.
      April: Yes, I am very powerful and feared by many.
      Jerry: Hey, April. Could you help me out a sec....
      April: Go away, Jerry!
      Jerry: Okay...
      April: (back to Johnny) See?

    • Leslie: This is my baby. I put this whole trip together. And let me tell you something - it has not been easy, you know. How do you fit all of Pawnee in a 48 hour visit? I had to drop the Rock 'n' Roll Bowling Alley from our itinerary. That was one of the most difficult phone calls I've ever had to make.

    • Leslie: Our photo-op with the Mayor is tomorrow at 3pm, so I'm gonna need your suggestions about my wardrobe ASAP.
      Tom: I told you - gold sequined sweatpants.

    • April: My mom's Puerto Rican. That's why I'm so lively and colorful.

    • Raul: Look, this is not personal. We just think that you are weak and your city is disgusting.

    • Elvis: What is your profession?
      Mark: I'm a city planner.
      Elvis: This city was planned?

    • Leslie: I mean, that's why people respect Hillary Clinton so much, because nobody takes a punch like her. She's the strongest, smartest punching bag in the world.

    • Leslie: This gun truly symbolizes the blossoming peace between our two nations.
