Prep Questionsfor Leslie Knope's Hearing before the City of Pawnee's Disciplinary Committee
Tom's prep question Leslie's answer Tom's follow-up
Ms. Knope , you're accused of stealing wine, how many drinks do you have per week, on average? Zero, zero to six I'm going to put 10
Have you ever cheated on your taxes? No, no, no, never Good, you're doing great
How many sexual partners have you had in the last year? Are they going to ask that? This is a deposition-style hearing, Ms. Knope. Nothing is off limits; you have to answer.
Now, how many sexual partners have you had in the last year? Zero to six Zero
Have you ever thought about Ron sexually? What!? (repeats and expands question)
Including dreams, have you ever had a sexual dream about our boss Ron Swanson? No, absolutely not. No. Yes.
Now, in this recurring dream about Ron, is he like a regular Ron, or is he half-Ron, half animal? Like a centaur. What. (expands question)
Is he wearing a football uniform? Are you making love to him on a couch shaped like his mustache? Is he covered in Powerade? Okay, timeout, timeout. This committee doesn't take timeouts, Ms. Knope. Now answer the question.
(awaits Ms. Knope's answer) I need something to drink. --
How 'bout some stolen wine? No, I meant water. Thank you for your time, Ms. Knope; you're fired.
So, that's kinda your worst-case scenario, ya know. (inaudible) You'll be fine.
