“I Shared My Flags with Him!”

“I Shared My Flags with Him!”

 

Okay, so did anyone else catch the prevalence of the Greek flag in this week’s Model UN episode (actual title: “The Treaty”) of Parks & Rec?  Even after the camera panned away from the mini flags, where Greece’s blue-and-white-striped flag was decidedly present, Galanolefki was one of the few larger flags in the background of another scene.  I couldn’t help but think it was a cheeky way of commenting on the recent UN bailout of Greece.

The episode itself was had so many great, quotable lines:::

Ben: You know, I didn’t really do Model United Nations in high school, so– oh wait, I SUPER did!

Ben: Leslie and I aren’t dating anymore, but we’re friends so it’s fun… It’s just fun.  It’s fun.. It’s… fun. It is fun.

Ron: And teach kids that not only is government good but there should be a worldwide supergovernment?  I’d rather sand down my toenails.

Andy: I just traded Finland’s military to Kenya for 50 lions. That’s pretty good, right?

Leslie: Madame Ambassador, pourquoi?

At first I was a bit annoyed that Parks & Rec was doing a Model UN episode since Community just did one.  I mean, is Model UN something people are really into?  I’ve never heard of any high schooler doing Model UN outside of on sitcoms.  It turned out to be one of the best episodes in a while, though.  It’s fun.
