"If you’ve been up all night and cried till you have no more tears left in you - you will know that there comes in the end a sort of quietness. You feel as if nothing was ever going to happen again."

"Leslie truly believes that no problem is too big, and no person is too small. It’s a very Horton Hears a Who kind of thing. But her goals have changed a little bit in that she’s gone from believing she wants to be the next president of the United States to seeing how difficult it is to make change happen. Me and [the show’s creators] Greg Daniels and Mike Schur talked about this long arc of a person who right out of Obama’s 2008 Audacity of Hope times who has very little power and works as a deputy director of a parks department in a small Midwestern town, but believes that things can be better, and it’s represented by idea that “I can build a park.” And throughout the course of the seasons, she fights against rejection and apathy and cynicism and tries not to get infected by those things, but they do change her. That’s the long arc. But really, the show’s just funny characters doing stupid things."
