Ep. 13: One Last Ride (Pt. 2): Workplace Proximity Acquaintances

Ron Swanson turns the tables on Leslie, and seeks advice from his former close work proximity acquaintance at the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool.

Ron Swanson:

“I suppose I had simply accomplished everything I wanted to and it seemed to be little point in continuing.”

Leslie Knope:

“So what do you wanna do now?”

Ron Swanson:

“Well, that’s the problem. I’m not sure, my kids are grown up, my days in an office feel like a waste. I would like to turn my attention to something, that would make me feel useful. But for the life of me, I cannot figure out what. And there are not many people, And I… I mean we were workplace proximity acquaintances for many years. And so I thought… I thought maybe…”

Leslie Knope:

“Say no more you big softy. I am going to spend every waking moment trying to figure this out for you. You want to stay for dinner? We’re having steak. We’re also hosting several members of the House Sub-Committee of Foreign Affairs.”

Ron Swanson:

“I’ll take that steak to go. Please and thank you.”
