I loved this episode so much, you guys. So. Much.

So here’s the basis of the episode: Leslie needs to raise 50K in a week to make Pawnee Commons a reality, but Jamm organizes Pawnee’s Disaster Preparedness test the same day as the benefit. What will Leslie do? (I want a WWLD bracelet now.)

Like, people could get their names put on benches or cobblestones or ants. I like it. I like how much Leslie wants to help the town and also how much Ben wants to please Leslie.
