** The entire department (save outsider Ben) goes ape over Li'l Sebastian, a miniature horse who is famous for... being a miniature horse back in the '80s. Even Ron Fucking Swanson turns into a giddy child around him, and the hostile ''Pawnee Today'' host is nearly turned around by Li'l Sebastian's presence. Ben just doesn't get it.
** One episode has Donna seeming almost hypnotised by Jerry's ability to do boring, repetetive gruntwork for hours on end with every sign of contentment. And then, when he's done, he realises that he did it all wrong and starts over from the beginning again, as serenely as ever.

** Do NOT mess with Donna's Mercedes.
** Don't even speak in a ''remotely'' hostile manner about [[spoiler: the late Li'l Sebastian]] around Ron.
** Don't insult Leslie around Ben, as seen in the episode "Bowling for Votes." Leslie obsesses over getting one man's vote because he had said in a focus group that he didn't like her. After Leslie tries to befriend him, he insults her and Ben does not hesitate to punch him.
-->'''Leslie:''' "I'm not going to apologize. And if people won't vote for me because of that, well, there's nothing I can do about it. But you should be warned. If you do not vote for me, my boyfriend might beat you up."

* StandardOfficeSetting: Leslie Knope works as Deputy Director of the Parks Department. She and her boss have their own office, while the other employees share a bullpen. They work in the public sector so their offices and bullpens are considerably less glamorous than it is usual in fiction.



* StatusQuoIsGod: Circumvented when Leslie decides to run for city council, she makes it clear that being a Councilwoman is a part time job (the bulk of the work lies in weekly meetings) and she would retain her job at Parks and Recreation at the same time. This means the election could go either way without negatively impacting the shows formula. [[spoiler: This turns out to be a lie; it ''is'' a full-time job, and when she loses it she has to apply for her old position back.]]
