Maybe it’s too soon. Maybe it’s the reason we were both looking for. Maybe I can’t stop now. Maybe I’m in deeper than I want to be. Maybe I hadn’t anticipated any of this. Maybe it’s been a while since I’ve felt like this way towards anyone. Maybe you make me nervous. Maybe I find my resolve crumbling. Maybe I want to cuddle. Maybe I think you’re really pretty. Maybe I’m worried I’ll get fucked over again. Maybe that’s all I ever think will happen.
But I can’t live in a world of maybe.

"Take it all back. Life is boring, except for flowers, sunshine, your perfect legs. A glass of cold water when you are really thirsty. The way bodies fit together. Fresh and young and sweet. Coffee in the morning. These are just moments. I struggle with the in-betweens. I just want to never stop loving like there is nothing else to do, because what else is there to do?"

"Poehler and the show’s writers could have chosen to make Leslie comically strident, which in turn, would make her feminist stances outsized and rife for mockery. And that would be a real drag, truth be told. Instead (thankfully), Leslie’s feminism is marbleized into the show’s narrative, making her desire to advocate for gender equality, to encourage women to support one another, and to teach girls how to empower themselves, organic. There is nothing surprising about Leslie bringing her girlfriends together on February 13th for Galentine’s Day, a day to celebrate and honor the great gal pals in your life. She and her best friend Ann (played by Rashida Jones) are equals. They show up for one another and stick to the “ovaries before brovaries” code while other characterizations of female relationships inevitably show women pitted against one another in pursuit of boys, jobs, or other women. Even the show’s male figures like the human puppy dog, Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt) and Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) align themselves with feminist ideals. Andy’s foray into college finds himself drawn to a Woman’s Studies class; Ron acknowledges the influence of strong women upon him and finds his romantic match in a self-reliant, smart, successful woman played, unsurprisingly, by the badass Lucy Lawless."
