Mark: Honestly, Leslie, it's going to be a long uphill battle. You are going to be super-annoyed with all the people who want you to fail. There is a sea of red tape, endless road blocks. So, yeah, I don't know. I don't know.
Leslie: Screw it. I'm gonna try to do it anyway.

[on Leslie] Smart woman. Iffy choice in men.

Ann

[after knocking over beer bottles] Did you hear that? Was that the sound of a glass ceiling being shattered?

Leslie

[on Mark] That dude has stuck it in some crazeee chicks.

Tom

[to Leslie] I'm going to say something and I don't want you to take it the wrong way ... but you are being a huge dork.

Mark

You know, normally I don't agree with Leslie about anything, but this book is awesome.

Leslie Knope: (Nervously) My mom's here.. My mom's here.. my mom's here..
(stares at the fire alarm)
Leslie Knope: No, I can't do that. That's illegal.

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.

Leslie Knope: How old are your kids?
Local citizen: Four and two.
Leslie Knope: Could the four-year-old watch the two-year-old?

Sir? This is a childrens slide. You're not allowed to sleep here.

Leslie Knope

These people are members of the community that care about where they live. So what hear when I'm being yelled at is people caring ... loudly at me.

Parks and Recreation Season 1 Quotes

Every now and then, we have these little gatherings, and Leslie gets plastered. One time, I convinced her to try to fax someone a Fruit Roll Up. She, one time, made out with the water delivery guy. In her office. On Halloween, she was dressed up as Batman. Not Batgirl; Batman. And I convinced her to go stop a crime that was going on outside. And it is my favorite thing in the world.

Tom Haverford

This could be my Hoover Dam.
