FAVORITE PARKS & RECREATION MOMENTS: ONE (OR MORE) PER EPISODE
009. → 105, “The Banquet”
MARK: Here, I’m gonna pretend to be Janine Restrepo, you be you. Go.
LESLIE: Hello, Madame Zoning Board Member Janine Restrepo. I am Leslie Knope from the Par— (Mark grabs her nose.) What are you doing?
MARK: Oh, I’m Pawnee Zoning Board Member Janine Restrepo, and I can do whatever I want. Please, tell me about this park that you badly need rezoned by me.
LESLIE: Okay, well, I think it would be a good idea to have a multi-use community park.
MARK: Oh, do you— (Ann grabs his nose.) Wait, what’s that?
ANN: Oh, what? I’m just former City Councilman Frank Whatever-the-Hell and I have more power than Janine Restrepo so I can do whatever I want.
MARK: I don’t even know if that’s true, though—
LESLIE: (Grabbing Ann’s nose.) Oh my God, really? Well I’m Marlene Griggs-Knope, and I will destroy you! Haaaaa! (They all laugh, while still holding each other’s noses.)
TOM: …what the hell are you guys doing?
