Ben Quote #321

Quote from Ben in Donna and Joe

Eugene: Ben Wyatt. Any comment on the report that you're running for Congress?
Ben: I'm sorry, I can't talk about this right now.
Eugene: Your only experience in politics was as a failed mayor at age 18--
Ben: Okay, please, everyone, we're at a wedding. And I'm holding zebras.
Eugene: I mean, what qualifies you to take over Hartwell's seat?
Ben: Guys, listen to me, please. I'm dealing with an actual problem right now. Okay? Which, by the way, is what I do for a living. I solve problems as a budget specialist, and for five years as a City Manager, and I'm pretty good at it. I have worked hard to transform this area into a fiscally sound destination for people who want good jobs, and a good public education, and I think the results speak for themselves. [cameras clicking] My name is Ben Wyatt, and I'm running for Congress.
Leslie Knope: Oh, my God, babe, that was so hot.

Quote from Ron Swanson

Ron Swanson: More importantly, do you have tri-tip for tonight? Because if not I brought my own.
[aside to camera:]
Ron Swanson: I love weddings. Good food, the celebration of romantic love, and most of all, churches. Say what you will about organized religion, those bastards knew how to construct an edifice.

Quote from Donna

Leslie Knope: [gasps] Oh, my God. Oh, look at how beautiful you look.
Donna: Leslie, I'm not even in my dress yet.
Leslie Knope: But you're gonna be very soon.
Donna: All right, I want to say something to my girls. Knope, you're a softie, but on the inside, you're a straight-up boss. April, you're the exact opposite. Y'all inspire me and I love you. And you, too, Michelle. Michelle... You were my best friend from childhood. Until we lost touch 'cause you thought your college boyfriend was into me. He was. I never gave him the time of day. But now, we're rebuilding our friendship. Is this wedding going to be a test for you? Yes. But the doctors once told you you were never going to walk again. So this should be easy, right?
Leslie Knope: Wow, what a complicated tapestry that is.
Donna: Bring it in. Bring it in. Bring it in.
