A letter comes from the IOW declaring Ron Swanson the Woman of the Year for a project that Leslie started. Ron, although he admits to the camera it's out of love, won't admit to Leslie that she deserved the award. That is until he's done messing with her and admits he thinks awards are stupid and just wanted to teach her a lesson. That is until the IOW shows up and admits they choose Ron Swanson on purpose and he has to give a speech. Leslie helps Ron prepare to a speech to stick it to the women, but in the end he uses his speech to announce he's giving the award to Leslie.
Meanwhile, Tom is given a chance to buy into the Snakehole Lounge for $10,000 but is $6,000 short. He gets $5k from his friend Jean (from the assistant interviewing process) and puts on a presentation to find the missing $1,000. In the end it ends up being Andy, who was going to use his money to get his own place.
