"We often talk about the idea that “Parks” didn’t really become “Parks” until season 2 (or, really, the season 1 finale, “Rock Show”), and that it took the writers a half-dozen episodes to figure out how to dial in Leslie as something other than a female Michael Scott. But watching “Ann and Chris” — which featured a few flashbacks to that long-ago pilot episode — it almost felt as if this wasn’t a case of a TV writing staff finding their way with a character, but of a lonely and intense woman needing a new friend to bring out the best in herself."
— Alan Sepinwall, in his review of “Ann and Chris” (via deadendtowns)
"Among the parting gifts that Leslie has for Ann are 103 scrapbooks, with titles like ‘The Sisterhood of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,’ ‘Eat, Read Eat, Pray, Love, Talk,’ and ‘Rachel Got Off the Plane: Choice, Chance and Romance in Post-Clinton America.’"

I am back at the Parks Department, and Ben is City Manager, but we’re married, so it’s kosher and awesome
