The Pawnee government gives Leslie and the Parks enough of a budget to come back... on maintenance mode. Leslie forces Ann to go on a date with Chris to try and get him to reinstate their old budget. Leslie and Ben manage to crash their date, and just as they have Chris convinced to rethink the budget, Leslie admits to their plan. Chris' first bad date.
It's okay because Leslie comes up with a new plan to get the budget back: bring back Harvest Day. If it fails, she'll shut down the Parks department. If it succeeds, they're back! Oh and Ann admits to Chris she really likes him. Aww.
Meanwhile, Ron and Andy each coach a basketball team in the only surviving Parks activity and April returns with a boyfriend from her trip to Venezuela.
