  • Quotes

    • Leslie: The Tucker Park Graffiti removal project was a great idea that just ran out of steam. We had removed five cartoon penises, not even 10 percent, when we were shot down due to lack of funding. Till this day I am haunted by those remaining penis in particular.

    • Leslie: The Parks Department has so many programs. Jerry is in charge of our preteen nature hikes. For a while, it was a teenage nature hike, but then we change it because a girl got pregnant.

    • Leslie: (showing a mural of a Native American chief tied to a tree and about to be shot by a cannon) There are ten murals here in this hallway. This is called "The Trial of Chief Wamapo." It was painted in 1936 and this is Chief Wamapo. He was convicted of crimes against the soldiers. I'm always amazed at his .... quiet dignity right before he's killed by a cannonball.
      Shauna: I'm surprised no one's complained about this.
      Leslie: Oh, tons of people have. Yeah ... we get letters every day.

    • Leslie: Tom Haverford. Boy genius. Smooth like milk chocolate.
      Tom: That's kind of a weird way to describe me.
