Leslie Knope has not been idle during her suspension from the Pawnee parks department.
Thursday’s (Dec. 8) “Parks and Recreation” deals with the aftermath of Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Ben (Adam Scott) revealing their romance, after which Ben resigned from his post and Leslie was suspended for two weeks. But as you can see in the first of two clips from the episode, she’s still got park business on her mind.
So much so, in fact, that she’s formed PCP (the Parks Committee of Pawnee) and drawn up a list of demands that she presents to Chris (Rob Lowe) — along with a very thoughtful Christmas present.
Leslie’s gift-giving skills are also the subject of the second clip, as the parks staff runs down the list of incredible presents she got for them this year. Be warned, though: You will see Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) get choked up to the point that he’s on the verge of crying for the first time since the death of Li’l Sebastian.
Take a look at the clips:
