Ep. 13: One Last Ride (Pt. 2): Pawnee National Park

Ron Swanson meets Leslie Knope at the lake in Pawnee National Park.

Leslie Knope:

“Hey, there you are. Thanks for meeting me here.”

Ron Swanson:

“Well if you had held them here instead of that conference room I would have come to more meetings. I gotta tell you Leslie establishing this National Park right next to Pawnee is quite an accomplishment. This is a fine piece of land you saved.”

Leslie Knope:

“Thank you Ron. You wanna run it? The Super Intendant of Bryce Canyon retired, and I convinced the Super Intendant of this park to transfer. Shuffled a few things around, point is someone needs to take care of this place now, I thought it should be you.”

Ron Swanson:

“I… Well first of all I would be working for the Federal Government.”

Leslie Knope:

“Your job would be to walk around the land alone. You’d live in the same town you’ve always lived in. You’d work outside and you talk bears. Next argument.”

Ron Swanson:

“There must be dozens of people gunning for this job. I wouldn’t want you to ruffle any feathers. Am I even qualified?”

Leslie Knope:

“Well a few people might be annoyed, but they’ll get over it. And as far as your qualifications, you’re Ron Swanson. Stop being a dummy and accept.”

Ron Swanson:

“When do I start?”

Leslie Knope:

“Oh Today. I already accepted for you. I still remember how to forge your signature. Let’s go meet your staff.”
