The
Foreshadowing
From Will Arnett
You Missed In
Parks And Rec
By DAMON RIVERA
Emmy-nominated comedy "Parks and Recreation" remains a top-tier favorite with fans and continues to be enjoyed years after the series finale. However, no matter how many times die-hard followers rewatch the show, some details still slip through the cracks — for instance, when Will Arnett guest starred, a simple joke foreshadowed a major event in the series.
In Season 2, Episode 13, Leslie Knope goes on a date with Chris, an MRI technician played by Will Arnett, who treats her to a free MRI after dinner. During the awkward ordeal, he tells her, "Honestly, [...] you could go triplets right off the bat, Leslie, you've got a big industrial sized oven." Chris ended up predicting a life-changing moment for Ben and Leslie in Season 6.
Redditor U/Hosizzlemynizzel posted the scene clip and wrote, "Will Arnett foreshadows Leslie and Ben having triplets." Several users agreed: u/modsuperstar added, "It's actually amazing how many little plot tidbits they foreshadowed in the show," and u/tat-tvam-asiii wrote, "Never put these two events together. Awesome find."
At the time, Arnett and AMY Poehler were married in real life, and Entertainment Weekly praised the duo's on-screen pairing, saying their scenes together were "the best worst first date seen on TV in a while." While the scene was a cringe-worthy endeavor, it showcased some impressive performances and a hilarious lack of chemistry between a proven comedic pair.
