Quote from Tom in Anniversaries

Leslie Knope: Okay, you two, head on up there. We are gonna recreate your wedding photo from 50 years ago.
Mr. DeMarco: Okay, let's relive that day. Only this time could we shave her moustache? [chuckles]
Leslie Knope: Oh, boy. I don't know. I'm kind of worried about putting these two on live TV. They're sort of grumpy.
Tom: Why are we wasting our time with these old people anyway? They're like the old version of iTunes. We're like the new version of iTunes, baby. We're gonna be here forever. Oh, my God. I'm gonna die someday.

Quote from Ron Swanson in Gin It Up!

Ron Swanson: That's your will? You need that many pages to say, "Give my stuff to my wife"?
Ben: It's a complicated legal document.
Ron Swanson: It doesn't have to be. I've had the same will since I was eight years old.
Ben: "Upon my death, all of my belongings shall transfer to the man or animal who has killed me." What are these weird symbols?

Ron Swanson: I am the director of the Parks Department, and this is a park.

Quote from Ron Swanson in Partridge

Ron Swanson: [aside to camera] Tom and April were excellent witnesses in my defense. Unfortunately, every single word out of their mouths was a lie. There's only one thing I hate more than lying. Skim milk. Which is water that's lying about being milk.

Ben: My boss in Indianapolis... He wants me back on the road in a week. But then this morning Chris offered me a job to stay here in Pawnee and work for him.
Leslie Knope: Do you want to do that?
Ben: Well, I don't know. I've been moving around so much the past few years, it might be nice to stay in one place for a while. What do you think?
Leslie Knope: Well, this is a great city. You know, it's definitely the best city in Indiana, probably America, possibly the world.
Ben: Sure.
Leslie Knope: But on the other hand, you've put in 12 years with the state government.
Ben: So you think I should say no to Chris and head back to Indianapolis or...?
Leslie Knope: It's a tough call. You know what I would do? You should make a pros and cons list. That always works for me.
Ben: Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Okay, maybe I'll do that.
Leslie Knope: Excellent. Nice talking to you.
Ben: Good stuff.

Quote from Leslie Knope in Correspondents' Lunch

Donna: [mumbling] I don't know.
Leslie Knope: Someone, [bleep] tell me what Neve Campbell sounds like.

Ben: Hey, I got your text. What are you doing?
Leslie Knope: I grabbed all of the brownies from the dessert table and four bottles of wine. Get in the car. We're going to Australia.
Ben: Leslie.
Leslie Knope: I am so sorry for everything. I love you, and I want to be on your team. I am on your team, but I think that our team should be far away from here.
Ben: Normally, I would get in the cab with you, but I am so sick of them ruining everything, and I really liked that unity quilt.
Leslie Knope: It was a good quilt.
Ben: It was an awesome quilt. Look, my parents are insane, but they need to be at our wedding. You know what? It's time for this team to come up with a new plan. I agree.
Leslie Knope: Phase one of our new plan, you get in the backseat of this cab, and we hardcore make out for 15 minutes.
Ben: I would love to do that. I'm just not sure if the driver would be okay with it.
Man: For another 100 bucks, you can do whatever you want.
Ben: Let's do this.
