* FakeGuestStar: Both Retta (Donna) and Jim O'Heir (Jerry) were upgraded to opening credits at the start of season six (though were credited as "starring" from season three), despite the fact that both were often important characters to the plot, and appeared in almost every episode. This crediting is similar to that of ''[[Series/TheOfficeUS The Office]]''.

'''''Parks and Recreation''''' (or '''''Parks and Rec''''' to its friends) is a 2009-2015 Creator/{{NBC}} WorkCom about small-town government, centering on the employees of the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Parks and Recreation Department]] of the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana. Created by the same people as the U.S. version of ''[[Series/TheOfficeUS The Office]]'' and filmed in the same {{Mockumentary}} style, it essentially does for the public sector what its sister show does for the private.

Added DiffLines:

* FastFoodNation: Several episodes' plots revolve around the Parks and Rec team attempting to get the citizens of Pawnee to be healthier, though they themselves are constantly tempted into eating terrible fast food. The most popular restaurant in the town of Pawnee is Paunch Burger, a burger joint with comically massive portions (their small drink is essentially a bucket), whose logo is a profile silhouette of a very fat man. Even the main cast regularly comments on how salads are a terrible food item with no redeeming qualities, and they commonly find themselves tempted into eating Paunch Burger food despite their disapproval of its effects on society. Another episode focuses on "nutrition" bars with an absurdly high sugar content, and the team's attempts to prevent them from being sold at parks, though the public loves them... because they're literally addictive.

** It's not actually shown, but Ann [[NoodleIncident at one point]] apparently ate a whole cheesecake for Leslie, remarking to a surprised Ben that it was delicious and she could have downed 10 if she had to. She also combines this with WackyPregnancyCravings in Season 6.
* BiggusDickus: According to a doctor who gave him a physical, Jerry has one of these. The biggest he's ever seen, in fact.

** Done masterfully between the season finale of the first and second season. Andy gets his casts off his broken legs and ends up getting a cast on his broken arm. Leslie and Mark sit at Lot 48 at night originally a pit, and now the site of a successful children's concert. Mark is originally pessimistic, but now presents Leslie with the blueprints for a new park.
