In Season 2, Episode 13 (“The Preparation”), Leslie Knope goes on a date with an MRI specialist named Chris (Will Arnett). After dinner, she gets a free MRI. During the awkward ordeal, he tells Leslie that she has a “great oven” and that “there’s plenty of room,” concluding with “Honestly, if you wanted to, you could put in triplets right away, Leslie, you’ve got a big industrial oven. Even though Chris was a next-level weirdo, he may have been somewhat correct in his blunt statement. In season 6, episode 20 (“One in 8000”), Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott) and Leslie find out they are having triplets.
U / Hosizzlemynizzel posted a clip of the scene and wrote, “Will Arnett heralds Leslie and Ben’s triplets.” Several users agreed with you / modsuperstarsaying, “It’s actually amazing how many little plot details they foreshadowed in the show”, and y / tat-tvam-asii wrote: “Never link these two events together. An amazing find.”
What’s also interesting about this situation is that Arnett and Poehler were married in real life at the time. Sandra Gomez from Entertainment Weekly praised the on-screen duo, saying that their scenes together were “the best worst first date I’ve ever seen on TV”. While the scene was worthy of cringing, it put on some impressive performances and a hilarious lack of chemistry between the proven comedy couple and predicted one of the happiest moments for the Parks and Recreation couple.
