'Parks and Recreation': Lucy Lawless and Ron Swanson meet cute over a pothole

Lucy Lawless begins her guest-starring arc on "Parks and Recreation" Thursday (Oct. 4), and as promised, her character and Ron Swanson will feel a definite connection.How much of a connection? Just watch these clips. The Pawnee parks department staff is manning a 3-1-1 hotline where residents can report problems in the community, and Ron (Nick Offerman) fields a call from a woman named Diane (Lawless) about a pothole in front of her house.

Ann (Rashida Jones) is on board, but we're guessing it won't go as well with the rest of the people in the fourth-fattest city in America.Take Ron (Nick Offerman), for instance. He is unsurprisingly not in favor of Leslie's proposal, given his libertarian bent. He demonstrates his opposition by bringing in a particularly monstrous meal from Paunch Burger, complete with a 64-ounce beverage. (Note that it's a small.)We're not sure how Leslie's bill will go over with the council (probably not well), but we are rather curious to see if anyone calls Leslie out on her own sugar addiction.
