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.

Ron: Okay, here's the situation.
Leslie: Your parents went away on a week's vacation and left the keys to the brand new Porsche? I'll just take it for a little spin and maybe show it off to a couple of friends. That's when I saw this beautiful girlie girl walking. I picked up my car phone to perpetrate like I was talking. this girl's hand was steadily moving up my thigh. She had opened up three buttons on her shirt so far. I guess that's why I didn't notice that police car. Well parents are the same no matter time nor place, so to you other kids all across the land, no need to worry, parents just don't understand!
Ron: Someone is on fire in Ramsett Park. They need you to get down there right away.
