Leslie’s Road Trip Playlist for the Unsexiest of Rides – Parks and Recreation
-Ann, everything you have
is too sexy. This is actually the dress that Julia Roberts wore as a
prostitute in “Pretty Woman.” -I know.
I look really good in it. -I need, like, a sweat suit
or something. I need to send out a signal that
nothing is gonna happen. -This is insane. It’s so obvious you’re dying
to be together. And now you’re going
on a road trip? I mean, you guys could literally
“get a room.” -Yeah, and I could literally get
a-fired. -Alright. I will help you
anti-seduce him. Just tell me what else you need. -I need to think of unsexy,
boring conversation topics we can talk about in the car. I have a few ideas. We could discuss “The New
Yorker” article “The History of the Ladder.”
-Okay. -We could talk about
different dorms at Johns Hopkins University. And I could read from my
Sonicare booklet. -Oh! I have a good idea.
-What? -What if you ask him
about his penis? -So basically, every dorm
allows bed lofting, but the students have really
taken to it at Wolman and McCoy. -Did you go to Johns Hopkins? -No. -You want to play some music?
-Sure. Ann and I burned an awesome CD
for the trip. -Jimmy Carter’s crisis of
confidence speech, learning to speak Mandarin, 16 minutes
of old-timey car horn, and something called
“Banjo Boogie Bonanza.” [ Banjo music playing ] -It’s an amazing instrument —
the banjo. -Yeah. I didn’t realize that
it could be this loud. [ Banjo music continues ] [ Whales singing ] -What is this? -Whale sounds.
-Okay. -You can change it if you want. -Yeah? [ Al Green’s “Let’s Stay
Together” playing ] -What the hell?! -Oh, no, no, this is
such a great song. -♪ I ♪ -Yeah, I snuck an Al Green song
in there. I want them to get together.
Sue me. -Did you see this?
According to their rules, we may not have enough hotel
rooms within city limits. -I know. It’s a silly rule. But maybe they’ll be reasonable
and not care. -Yeah, maybe we can just point
out to them there are tons of hotel rooms
just outside city limits. -Uh-huh. -Have you been to the Grandview
Hotel and Spa? -Unh-unh.
-They have the softest towels. -Oh. I got to tell you,
I love a nice towel… -Me too.
-…in my life. -I know.
-It’s the simplest luxury, but it makes all the difference. -Their bath mats are amazing. It’s like stepping on a lamb. -[ Laughs ]
-[ Giggles ] -Oh. Hold on. Hey, come here.
You got an eyelash on your face. I got it. Make a wish. -Learning to speak Mandarin,
unit 3. -Get away from me. -Sorry.
-I’m sorry. -Getting around town. -I’m…
-I’m… -I’m allergic to fingers. -Where are you going?
[ Speaks Mandarin ] -Maybe we should just not talk
to each other for the rest of the trip, and I’m just gonna concentrate
on the presentation. -Okay.
-This is my little brother. [ Speaks Mandarin ]
