Ron Swanson has a ten point scale for Leslie’s insanity

Ep. 18: Prom: Ten Point Scale for Leslie

Ron Swanson has a ten point scale for Leslie’s insanity, reveals its components, and tells her all about it.

Ron Swanson:

“I have never told you this, but I actually have a ten point scale for how insane you are being. I observe your behavior and if it’s a five or below I say nothing.”

Leslie Knope:

“Smart. Saves a lot of time.”

Ron Swanson:

“If it reaches a six, like for example the incident with the girls soccer uniforms back in ’05.”

Leslie Knope:

“They wrote all the team names in pink. Nobody told them to do that.”

Ron Swanson:

“I tried to steer you back to safety. A seven is when I lock you in your office until you cool down. This Allison Gliffert thing may have hit an eight. I have the police on standby. It’s your move.”

Leslie Knope:

“I’m thinking of leaving Pawnee. Moving to Chicago. I just need to make sure that the future is secure around here when I leave. You know? Allison would become April, and then April would become me. I mean lets face it Ron, I love you but your hopeless without me.”

Ron Swanson:

“Blueprints for the future are a fools errand. They’re like blueprints for a house. Nice to have but any foreman with half a brain doesn’t need to look at ’em. One day this year or maybe the next you’re gonna be somewhere else, so enjoy yourself now.”

Leslie Knope:

“Damn it. I just wish once you would say something stupid so I could ignore it.”
