Trivia

Leslie tells Ben that her mother loves "McSteamy" from the TV show Grey's Anatomy (2005). Pamela Reed (Marlene Griggs-Knope) once played a patient in an episode of Grey's Anatomy (Season 6 episode 14). See more »

Goofs

It's inconceivable that after nearly a year or so in Pawnee, and spending considerable time with Leslie, that Ben would not have heard that her mother also works at City Hall and in fact is more prominent than Leslie. Leslie's mom is the only family she has and they are not estranged. Additionally, Leslie has a photo of her mom behind her desk. See more »

Quotes

Ron Swanson: Everyone is miserable. Tom can only work if there's someone to impress, so stranding him in Freak Island isn't helping anyone. You made April everyone's assistant. You know who April hates? Everyone. And Jerry can only perform when no one is looking. Shine a spotlight on him and he shrinks faster than an Eskimo's scrotum.
