Leslie: Why do I wanna build this park so bad? Maybe because a pit filled with garbage isn’t the best we can do in America. You know, in Russia they could pretend that pit was a park. Bring their kids down there. "Hey Vlad, look at these rocks! Let’s pretend they’re potatoes! Nikolai, do you want to swim in the dirt?"
But not here. ‘Cause we’re a nation of dreamers. And it is my dream to build a park that I one day visit with my White House staff on my birthday and they say: "President Knope, this park is awesome. Now we understand why you are the first female president of the United States."
