Quote from Gryzzlbox

Perd Hapley: Now, Leslie, I understand that what you've brought to the show isn't a box of objects, but rather a symbolic box of allegations.
Leslie Knope: Well, Perd--
Perd Hapley: It's Judge Perd.
Leslie Knope: Okay. Uh, I think there are certain questions about certain aspects of certain parts of this situation that require an evaluation about whether or not this is or is not a valid argument.
Perd Hapley: Extremely well-put.

Quote from A Parks and Recreation Special

Perd Hapley: Welcome to "Ya' Heard? With Perd". I'm Perd Hapley, the Perd I mentioned a second ago when I was telling you the name of my show. Now, here today are two people who are also my guests. Leslie Knope from the Department of the Interior and Congressman Ben Wyatt.
Leslie Knope: Hi, Perd.
Ben: Hey, Perd. How are you?
Perd Hapley: I guess my first question is more of a query. What did you want to talk about?

Quote from A Parks and Recreation Special

Perd Hapley: You heard it here first, ladies and gentlemen. And the "it" that you heard was the things that these people just said. Now, a word from our sponsors.

Quote from Gryzzlbox

Perd Hapley: To be honest, Judge Perd is stumped by this case. I've also misplaced my judge hammer. I cannot render a verdict here. Therefore, I must declare a mistrial, which is a term I've heard people use in the movies. Tap, tap, tap. Case ended.

Quote from Sex Education

Marcia Langman: Perd, we strongly believe in teaching and practicing abstinence.
Marshall Langman: [camp voice] We all have some crazy urges from time to time, but you just can't act on them. You have to bury them way down deep inside. You have to say, "Get out of here, you crazy urges! You are not welcome in this brain of mine!"
Perd Hapley: There are some statistics that I'd like to share with you now, and they are numbers. Some 85% of Pawnee residents support abstinence-only education.
Marshall Langman: And the other 15% are perverts. J.K., you guys. [laughs]
Perd Hapley: And 100% of Pawneeans are "Perd-verts." That's the name I call fans of this show based on the fact that my name is Perd. We'll see you after the break, Perd-verts.

Quote from London (Part 1)

Kathryn Pinewood: [online video] Apparently, she can't be bothered to stay here in Pawnee, not when there's Europe to gallivant around in.
Perd Hapley: Well, we conducted a Perd poll and asked this question: 48% said she should not be in Europe, 17% say it's okay, and 35% said they were confused by the way the question was posed.

Quote from Ann and Chris

Leslie Knope: We know that you were already approached by Sweetums and you said "No," but is there any way you would reconsider?
Perd Hapley: I'm sorry, Miss Knope. There is such a thing as journalistic integrity, and it is something that I have as a journalist with integrity.
Ann: It's really important, Perd. Please? Come on. For old time's sake.
Perd Hapley: Well, the story of that appeal is it was heartfelt. And in response to that appeal, I respond: Okay.

Quote from Jerry's Painting

Perd Hapley: Hello, I'm Perd Hapley and welcome to Ya' heard? With Perd. Today's show begins now. Is this art, or is it pornography? Here to answer this question is Parks and Recreation deputy director Leslie Knope.
Leslie Knope: Perd, it is a beautiful work of art. Governments should not be in the business of censorship, especially when a painting is as awesome as this one.
Perd Hapley: But this is where the controversy of this story gets even more controversial. You are the subject of this painting. Half woman, half horse, with what some would say are human breasts.
Leslie Knope: I am not the subject. The subject is strong and empowered women everywhere. But it... It does look a little bit like me.
Perd Hapley: Leslie, for our viewers at home who might not know, are centaurs real?
Leslie Knope: No.
Perd Hapley: You absolutely sure?

Quote from I'm Leslie Knope

Perd Hapley: For a female perspective on this scandal, we turn to a woman, Leslie Knope. I'm about to ask you a question right now and that question is this. The lewd photo, just how big a deal is it?
Leslie Knope: Well, frankly, Perd, it's not that big a deal. If you know what I mean.
Perd Hapley: [laughing heartily] I don't know what you mean. But it had the cadence of a joke.
[on TV broadcast:]
Leslie Knope: When men in government behave this way, they betray the public's trust. Maybe it's time for more women to be in charge.
Perd Hapley: There you have it, where "it" is the thing Leslie Knope just said about this situation.

Quote from Campaign Shake-Up

[on TV broadcast:]
Announcer: This is "The Final Word with Perd." With your host, Perderick L. Hapley.
Perd Hapley: Issue number one is the first issue we're going to talk about. Is Bobby Newport's campaign for city council in trouble? When I say your names, I want you to respond. Dylan.
Dylan: Well, Newport's poll numbers have been plummeting. They just fired his campaign manager, and where's Bobby? He's on vacation in Spain.
Lisa: He's not on vacation, he's in hiding. Every time the guy speaks, he puts his foot in his mouth.
Perd Hapley: [laughs] That's a hilarious image. A foot in a mouth.
Lisa: It's a common expression.
