** The Watsonian explanation is that the show was supposed to be a more clear-cut SpiritualSuccessor to ''The Office'', but gradually became it's own thing, and the character reactions to the camera just kind of hung around as a residual appendix of what the show used to be. It's probably not supposed to be a proper {{Mockumentary}} any more, the characters just break the fourth wall every so often because that's kind of the show's thing.



** The answer to this is simply that Ron -- like the rest of us -- can be a wee bit of a hypocrite from time to time. He believes everyone should live their lives how they choose, but -- again like the rest of us -- ''also'' believes that everyone's life would run best if they made the same choices ''he'' makes.

Also, as noted above, one can support the legalisation of marijuana in general terms while simultaneously wishing that the people who ''really'' support the legalisation of marijuana to a much more intense degree than you would maybe shut up and back off about it a little bit. As someone who knows, it can be a SingleIssueWonk to a truly irritating degree with some people. For Ron, it might just not be a huge priority with him.

** The TimeSkip was three years (between 2014-2017). They could've likely reconnected during that time in between and then just simply didn't work out.

** Or they could have just simply moved on with their lives. How many times do you hear of old friends, partners etc. promising to keep in touch but just kind of drifting apart? Two years is a long time.

Added DiffLines:

*** Also, this essentially means that she's a bit pushy, overbearing and thoughtless at times. While irritating character traits, this hardly makes her the reincarnation of Himmler or anything. Leslie has friends the same reason that anyone has friends; she has sufficient positive qualities that people find appealing enough to be willing to overlook her more negative traits.


Added DiffLines:

** People who believe in the zodiac tend to ascribe particular character traits to the different signs (for example, being born under Pisces is supposed to make someone generous, compassionate, faithful, caring and artistically inclined). Other Ron is likely just working backwards by noting Ron's personality traits and comparing them to the most applicable sign of the zodiac.

Added DiffLines:

*** They could be conservative Democrats; not every member / voter of the Democratic party is a dyed-in-the-wool progressive, and Leslie might just simply be further to the left than most of the rest of Pawnee.

*** The person who posted this comment about Diane's character has never had kids, babysitted kids, had a sibling, was probably homeschooled and never attended a public or private school, and probably uses a bullet-proof Popemobile for every trip, even if it's going from the kitchen to the living room. I mean, seriously? When you have kids, you learn to take a little thing like an impromptu haircut in stride. And what do you mean, "they came very close to doing worse?" What, are you thinking the two little girls are going to start cutting off each other's fingers and toes? They're sisters who are just playing, not budding serial killers. If it had looked even remotely like they were in any danger of hurting each other, Ron would have ripped that door off its hinges. Besides, we do understand IT'S JUST A SHOW WITH MAKE-BELIEVE CHARACTERS AND THE RULE OF FUNNY APPLIES, right? Let's not drag our issues into it.

* In Season 7, what on earth happened to Nadia? She was only supposed to be on her DWB mission in Rwanda for two years and even tells Tom she'll call him when she gets back and yet is never even mentioned even though she would have returned by then.

Added DiffLines:

*** Not sure about his liberarian beliefs, but he seems to have a general idea of "man vs. nature" (hunting, fishing, surviving) and perhaps composting and giving back to the environment is coddling it in his eyes. He tends to hold the idea of not helping or being helped and taking your fate into your own hands pretty highly.

* Does it seem weird to anyone else that in season two, the Pawnee Summer Catalogue includes tennis "for the first time in twenty years", but there's always footage of someone playing tennis in the opening credits?
