Ron Swanson wants to know what constitutes a law

Ep. 11: The Comeback Kid: What Constitutes a Law

Ron Swanson was pulled over while driving the truck with equipment and supplies to erect a stage for Leslie’s speech.

Ron Swanson:

“Officer, I’ve been operating heavy machinery since I was eight years old. Now I respect you and your service to this town and your country, but what laws are we breaking, exactly?”


“Well, you got four people in the front seat, no one’s wearing a seat belt. You were speeding and blasting your horn through the hospital zone. The rear of the vehicle is open, debris has been falling out and you don’t have a commercial license to drive a truck.”

Ron Swanson:

“Ok. Well we have a philosophical difference on what constitutes a law.”
