‘Galentine's Day’

Season 6, Episode 17 -  Aired March 20, 2014

Leslie is missing Ann so she decides to hold an off-season Galentine's Day to find a replacement friend. Ron jumps at the chance to do some outdoor, solitary government work to give himself a break from being a parent. Meanwhile, Tom and Ben deal with a difficult local businessman as they try to secure tents for the unity concert.

Quote from Ann

Ann: [on voicemail] Listen to me very carefully. I have not been taken. I know that's always your first fear when I'm not available, but this is not a Liam Neeson Taken scenario.
Leslie Knope: That's exactly what they'd make you say.
Ann: Also, no one's making me say this. I am a free woman, untaken, simply going about my business. I just have to run. Something came up. I love you, and I'll call you later.


Quote from Donna

Leslie Knope: Shauna, I'm so glad you could make it. You're so tan.
Shauna Malwae-Tweep: Oh, thanks. I just got back from a solo trip to Rome. I was gonna go with my boyfriend, but he couldn't come because he decided to stay with his wife.
Leslie Knope: Oof.
Evelyn: I love Rome. It's such a great place.
Donna: Rome's played out. Have y'all been to Kuala Lumpur?
Leslie Knope: When did you go to Asia?
Donna: I go all the time. Where do you think I got that crystal Buddha head above my jacuzzi?
Leslie Knope: You have a jacuzzi? Good to know.

Quote from Leslie Knope

Leslie Knope: Thank you, everyone, for getting together on such short notice, and happy Galentine's day. Now, this is not technically the right date, but any time a group of women get together for brunch, we embody the spirit of the holiday. Today we will celebrate friendship, spend a few hours together, and answer a couple of questions I've compiled. Just for fun. Nothing serious. But please answer them with complete honesty 'cause I'll be able to tell if you're lying. To girlfriends!

Quote from Tom

Harvey: Suit yourself, gentlemen. Sorry we couldn't make a deal.
Tom: Wait, wait. Let me try one more thing. [parts hair differently] What's the price now?
Harvey: $80 more. I liked it better the other way.
Tom: Does have an effect, though.

Quote from Andy

Andy: Well, the numbers don't lie. I'm a goofus, not a gallant. [throws book into the fisk tank]

Quote from Andy

Andy: [slurping] Ow. [continues slurping] Ow. Ow!
Ron Swanson: Andrew, you need to get your tooth fixed.
Andy: No way. I'm not going back there. I already won all the magazine mazes. Don't worry. It's gonna be fine. Ow!
Ron Swanson: If you don't take care of the problem now, it's only gonna get worse. Come on. I'll drive you back.
Andy: Fine. Let me just wolf down this peanut brittle real quick. [Ron slaps the peanut brittle out of Andy's hands] Why would you do that? Oh, right. 'Cause calories.

Quote from Ron Swanson

Ron Swanson: [on the phone] Hello, Diane. I'm coming home soon to relieve you, give you a little break. It's no trouble at all. I'm a parent. I'm always on duty. What flavor ice cream would you and the children like? I'm getting some for a 30-year-old who works for me, so I can bring some home for you too.

Quote from Ben

Ben: Is this really necessary?
Leslie Knope: When she moved, we promised each other that we would talk every day, and we've really fallen behind.
Ben: I know your female friends are very important to you, but I'm always a good sounding board. I mean, I can talk about Sandra Bullock skirt length.
Leslie Knope: No, no, babe, you can't. You would just embarrass yourself. Plus, every time I start talking to you, five seconds later, I want to jump your bones.
Ben: Oh, let's do that instead.
Leslie Knope: See, that's what I'm talking about. Yeah, okay, let's do this. Okay.
Ben: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Quote from Andy

Andy: Sorry I'm late. [panting]
Leslie Knope: Uh, Andy, why don't you go with Ron and help him?
Ron Swanson: I really don't need--
Andy: Shotgun! I call shotgun. Where are we going? Doesn't matter. Shotgun. Shotgun on all rides for the rest of the day. For the rest of my life. In any car! Ha ha! I just faced you suckers! So I'll see you in the parking lot, Ron. Later!

Quote from Leslie Knope

Leslie Knope: Okay, ladies, I will be in my office for one to seven hours for my weekly chat with Ann. I brought some fresh snacks. And I made a backup plan for the vendor chart in case, you know, yours isn't good.
Donna: Actually, Ann called while you were in the bathroom. She said something came up, she'll call you later. I don't know, I told her to leave you a voice mail.
Leslie Knope: Ugh! God, why'd you let me say all that? I'm coming, Ann's voice mail! I'm coming!
