Parks and recreations was a show like no other! It had quirky storylines and was full  of funny laugh-out-loud scenes and dialogue. It gave us seven seasons of unforgettable moments and even some tear jerker moments too. The show has been over for a while now but some of those hilarious quotes and scenes from over the years are just to good to let them be forgotten. I wish I could share them all but for now here are some of my favorite ones.

To start off,  a quote from the great and knowledgeable man himself Ron Swanson:

 * “It’s not mean if he doesn’t know about it, it’s like talking about people behind their backs. Everybody wins!” – April

“Condoms with pictures on them is only ONE of my world-class business ideas. Ready to make millions and I’m looking for investors. Bonus if  you’re a celebrity, super bonus if you’re a hot girl without standards” – Jean Ralphio

“When I bet on horses, I never lose. Why? I bet on every horse” – Tom

“If you don’t like what I post, don’t follow me” – Donna

“Clear alcohols are for rich women on diets” – Ron

“I have no idea what I’m doing, but I know I’m doing it really, really well” – Andy

“I think it will be a bonding experience between me and Ron. Men enjoy it when a woman is better than them at something they love” – Leslie

“Horizons are dumb. Never broaden your horizons” – April

“Jogging is the worst! I know it keeps you healthy, but God at what cost?” – Ann

“If I had an hour alone with Robert Pattinson, he would forget all about Skinnylegs McGee, I’ll tell you that much” – Donna

* “I’m not crying, okay? I’m just allergic to jerks” – Andy

“Strippers do nothing for me. I like a strong salt-of-the-earth, self-possessed woman at the top of her field, your Steffi Graf’s, Sheryl Swoopes’s, but I will take a free breakfast buffet anytime, any place” – Ron

“We have to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. But work has to come third” – Leslie

At a restaurant and asked if he would like some salad: “Since I am not a rabbit, no I do not!” – Ron

“Love fades away but things? things last forever” –  Tom

“They call me devo, cause I can whip ’em good” – Ben

* ” I’m going to tell you a secret about everyone else’s job: no one knows what they’re doing. Deep down, everyone is just faking it until they figure it out. And you will too, because you are awesome and everyone else sucks” – April

“Pawnee is the opposite of hip. People in this town are just now getting into Nirvana. I don’t have the heart to tell them what’s going to happen to Kurt Cobain in 1994” – Tom

I know there are many others that I have forgotten, so in the comments please let me know your favorite Parks and recs quotes or scenes. If you haven’t got a chance to see the show yet, then I can’t recommend a better show especially if you a comedy fan. You can  watch all seven seasons on Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime. Trust me it will be worth it! If you don’t feel like giving them all a try, then at least give this episode a watch. It’s one of my favorite episodes and the one that sealed the deal for me. It’s on season 2, episode 10 called “Hunting trip”.
