It was a field trip of sorts on this week's episode of "Parks & Recreation" (Thu., 8:30 p.m. EST on NBC). After a single person in a focus group said that Leslie didn't seem like the kind of person he would go bowling with, she, typically, obsessed over it. She fixated on it so much that she orchestrated a fun bowling night out for her campaign staff, and secretly invited the man from the focus group.
The two competed fiercely and Leslie ended up beating him, but the man didn't change his opinion of her. His opinion went the other way: as he ended up calling her a b***h to her face. Rushing to her defense, Ben punched the guy and knocked him down.
A subsequent focus group of the press conference where Leslie announced he wouldn't be apologizing for the incident because the man was a jerk found much better results for Leslie. The people of Pawnee like a woman who is tough.
It's a good thing Tom isn't running, then. While he looked fly, his bowling technique was a joke. He bowled like a kid, swinging the ball between his legs with two hands, which made it worse when he actually beat Ron. At one point, he smashed a finger and started crying.
Later, Ron went back to the bowling alley incognito and tried out Tom's ridiculous technique. To his surprise and horror, it proved effective. He bowled a 300, but refused to even tell his name to the bowling attendant who came up and offered to honor him on the wall.
Ron Swanson line of the night: "When I eat, it is the food that is scared."
The campaign continues on "Parks & Recreation," Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
