“Parks and Recreation” stars Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aubrey Plaza and Kathryn Hahn reunited for a Galentine’s Day photo, commemorating one of the most famous episodes of the NBC show.
“Happy happy galentine’s day. These women keep me alive,” Plaza posted on Instagram on Tuesday.
In season 2 of the NBC show, Leslie Knope (Poehler) gets the girls together for Galentine’s Day brunch: “It’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”
Ann Perkins (Jones), Donna Meagle (Retta), April Ludgate (Plaza), Leslie’s mom and others are present at Leslie’s brunch where the guests are showered with obnoxious presents and lots of whipped cream (Leslie’s favorite) on their waffles.
According to Newsweek, the episode remains one of the most-watched “Parks and Rec” episodes of all time, with 4.98 million viewers at the time.
Leslie has another Galentine’s Day in the sixth season of the show, although it’s not a happy one given that Ann left Pawnee two months prior. She has the brunch to figure out who could replace her best friend.
