Leslie Knope is played by Amy Poehler in Parks and Recreation. She's the Deputy Director of Parks and Recreation in Pawnee, Indiana.

While kinda annoying, and very awkward in social situations, Leslie has an unabashed optimism. She truly believes that her role in government is to make the city a better place for its resident.

She's trying to accomplish this task by getting a pit turned into a park. Leslie is being met with resistent, but that's never stopped her before!

Knope says: "I'm one hundred percent committed to making sure every resident has all the green space and fun activities he or she can handle."

How can anyone find fault in someone that believes in that?!?

Leslie Knope Quotes

Leslie: Why would anybody ever eat anything besides breakfast food?
Ron: People are idiots, Leslie.

I want to be president someday, so I have not smoked marijuana. I ate a brownie once. At a party in college. It was kind of indescribable really. I felt like I was floating. It turns out that there wasn't any marijuana in it, it was just an insanely good brownie.
