Parks and Recreation returns with a fifth season tonight on NBC. In ‘Ms Knope Goes to Washington’ Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Andy (Chris Pratt) decide to visit Ben (Adam Scott) and April (Aubrey Plaza) at their new jobs in Washington D.C. but Leslie is soon feeling overwhelmed by the city — especially after meeting two of her idols (Senators Barbara Boxer and Olympia Snowe).

Meanwhile, Ron (Nick Offerman) throws a “thank you” barbeque for the entire Parks and Recreation staff.

‘Ms Knope Goes to Washington’ guest stars Aziz Ansari, Rashida Jones, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir and Retta along with Senators Barbara Boxer, John McCain and Olympia Snowe and airs tonight Thursday September 20th from 9:30-10 p.m. ET on NBC.
