Parks and Recreation Halloween Surprise
27 October 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Ron is working and his new girlfriend Diane comes to visit him even though he thinks they are very loud. Andy gets involved and Ron is going trick of treating. Leslie is buying a new house because Ben and her are moving into a new house. When Leslie says she wants to get the house the second time Anne starts the music. Back in DC April exits and Ben is asked what his next job will be. After Diane leaves for work it is up to Ron and Andy to look after them. Ben calls Leslie about him working more in DC even though she does not want him to. When Ron try's to solve a problem with kids they just start crying. When Leslie and April decide to scare Tom they scare Jerry and he starts to have a fart heart attack putting him in the hospital. Leslie organizes a Garage sale to raise money for Jerry getting everyone to sell things. Diane comes to say sorry to Ron because of how he treated her children on Halloween. Just selling the final item Leslie gets a call from Ben who really wants to still work on campaign's, then Leslie decides to sell of a night with Anne which gets very high prizes. The money gets as high as 900 dollars from a creepy man but end up betting a million on herself and running out. When trying to sell some of his clothes Tom sets up a new business. Leslie visits Jerry and Ben is sad in DC. Ron brings flowers and chocolates to Diane to apologize to her. Leslie has to not sell the house because Ben is staying in DC but then he comes to the house and goes down on one knee proposing to her. She needs to remember how the proposal goes so she stalls it a bit. Great episode and the proposal was so deserved that it finally happened and Amy showed her best acting in that moment.
