Adam Scott speaking with Zap2it about Leslie and Ben's relationship:
"I live in DC now with April, Aubrey's character. We're working on a congressional campaign there. So it's kind of the strains of long distance relationships both with me and Aubrey's characters with our people back in Pawnee. For my character, it's a big deal because I'm in the major leagues as far as politics goes. And Leslie coming to visit and feeling a little bit like a country mouse puts a little bit of strain on the relationship."
