Parks and Recreation Recap: "Canvassing"

by at . Comments

The unabashed optimism of Leslie Knope was on full display during this episode of Parks and Recreation.

So was her awkward, accidentally insulting behavior.

The half-hour was based around a public forum, meant to garner support for her pit-to-park project. Instead, it garnered hatred for Leslie and her crew. Oops.

Read a detailed recap of "Canvassing" now.

Tom Haverford: You know, normally I don't agree with Leslie about anything, but this book is awesome. | permalink
Leslie Knope: When I was in sixth grade, I was voted best dressed by 87 votes. And there were only 63 people in my class. | permalink
Leslie Knope: I'm going to see my mom. She's a big mucky-muck in the county school system. She's my hero. How do I explain her? She's as repected as Mother Theresa; she's as powerful as Stalin and she's as beautiful as Margaret Thatcher. | permalink
Local citizen: Look, I think this is a great idea, but I can't make any forum. I would have to get a babysitter...
Leslie Knope: How old are your kids?
Local citizen: Four and two.
Leslie Knope: Could the four-year-old watch the two-year-old? | permalink
