Thursday night's episode of "Parks and Recreation" didn't waste any time in getting to the main event: Leslie and Ben were back in Washington, and he arranged a chance for her to meet her celebrity crush, Vice President Joe Biden.
Biden: "You must be Leslie ..."
Knope: "My name just came out of your mouth!"
Leslie, of course, was completely tongue-tied, and more than a little bit handsy when she met the Veep.
Flustered, she said she told Biden she would see him tomorrow, to which he said, "You will?"
She also warned the Secret Service to watch out for him as he's "precious cargo."
Meanwhile, back in Pawnee, Leslie was overjoyed that April actually came to her with an idea for a new dog park ("I want to take a picture of you saying 'per capita,'" she said). But that quickly turned to horror when April suggested building the dog park in the lot behind Ann's house. Leslie's created a monster!
In order to convince April to move the dog park, Leslie went with her to her friend Orin's horrible art installation, the "Human Farm." (It's scenes like this, coupled with the Biden scene, that show the range of "Parks and Rec.")
Leslie, April and Ann teamed up with a compromise, pulling a dirty trick on her arch enemy Councilman Jam at the same time. "You just got Knoped! And Ludgated... And Per...Perkins'ed."
In the meantime, after spending a few months in the world of high-profile politics, Ben was looking forward to returning to the world of accounting. But first, he was helping Tom with his latest idea (something about putting stacks on stacks on stacks).
At every turn, Ben kept getting offered jobs, while Tom's idea kept getting rejected. So Ben decided to quit accounting mere seconds after he accepted the job. Get ready for Ben Wyatt, freelancer! (I have to admit, I preferred "Bond, Municipal Bond.")
Andy was also on the job, off to solve a mystery! ("A game is the foot," as he would say.) A mystery he wrongly believed to be a setup by one of his co-workers to test his detective skills: "I can never tell if people are lying to me. I hope that doesn't come up in my police work."
What did you think of the VP's cameo? Would you hire Ben - or Andy, for that matter - for anything as well? Share your view on video or comment below.
now that Obama is a lame duck or something that rhymes with duck Biden is starting his 2016 run for the white house. could he be the first white male president in eight years?, don't think so, the powers that be have decided that it's time for a woman president after that an Hispanic one and then another African one so Joe is going to have to wait another 28 years before he'll have he's shot at the WH.

This is a dating site where you can meet rich successful men and classy gorgeous women such as CEOs, athletes, doctors, lawyers, models, celebrities, etc….Maybe you can take a try
I agree. That is egzactly right.
Biden then stood idly by while more innocent Americans were murdered by the Nobama Regime... And Thats The Truth...
You must be a hipster
Still whining, I see! Yeah, it is a dirty shame that our vice president has a sense of humor. Did you rag on when McCain was on this sitcom? I don't think so. If you are so concerned about Benghazi, why do the republicans want to cut funding for protection of our foreign embassies by 40%? You talk a good game, but never have any actual facts to back up your idiotic statements. Seeing you jumped on the John McCain crazy, old codger platform just shows what an ignorant, uniformed tool you've become. Yes, Benghazi was a horrific tragedy, and we need to fortify the protection of our citizens. How are you going to do that when you want to cut the funding? Time to change that bulb, because your truth is a dim as you are. It's funny how old, republican, white men are the ones who just can't let this election go. You lost, because you had a crappy candidate, who had no consistent platform, and lied constantly. Did you think the American people wouldn't figure him out? Get over it, Sukkman, and get over yourself. You whine like a little girl! You should seek help before you explode with all that pent up hatred that you have. AND THAT'S THE TRUTH!
I'm a turnip. Tasty and nutritious.
a Gavone...be careful with that one–you know what i mean?
Them must be smart people words. I don't really know what either one of them are.
It means fuudjepacker at the Keebler elves factory.
If Joe Biden was so great he would be president. Not just some wannabe. A Vice President.
What does buffoon mean?
This show gives me explosive diarreah
The season has been pretty lame. Nucky is acting like a sissy. The only thing good so far is Billie Kent getting blown up. Maybe Nucky will start acting like a man now.
Biden is an idiot and will therefore fit right in on this show.
Agreed. He is a buffoon.
Worst show on television. Liberal garbola.
This is what's wrong with the country. Lib Hollywood and NY media giving free endorsements to soc ialist.
Oh calm down! John McCain was on earlier this season. This is the best comedy on TV right now. Love it!
if you remember in the McCain episode she pretended not to know him and was rude and dismissive. pretty much how all democrats act towards non-party members.
