Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope in “Parks and Recreation.”
July is Parks and Recreation Month. In honor of this occasion, we have gathered together some of the best quotes from the comedy “Parks and Recreation.”
The show starred Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope, who led her small Parks and Recreation department in Pawnee, Indiana, with an unreal amount of fervor and enthusiasm. Her team was filled with an assortment of odd, hilarious characters, including Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman), the extreme libertarian, hermit carnivore with a soft heart; Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt), the mentally slow but lovable shoe shiner; Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones), Leslie’s nurse best friend; April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza), Andy’s dark, moody but also soft-hearted wife; Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott), Leslie’s nerdy, quirky love interest — and so many more. Their misadventures and ultimately their loyalty for each other are what make this show a gold mine.
If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and go watch it on Netflix — now. Force yourself to get through the lesser first season. It will be worth it in the end.
Without further ado, here are some of the top quotes from this quirky show. There are many, many more — just do a quick search on Pinterest.
1. Andy is always full of the best one-liners. This is one Pratt ad-libbed himself.
