Leslie and Ben

In my time working for the state government, my job sent me to 46 cities in 11 years. I lived in villages with eight people, rural farming communities, college towns. I was sent to every corner in Indiana. And then, I came here. And I realized that this whole time… I was just wandering around everywhere, just looking for you.”

-Ben Wyatt

Sepertinya saya nggak pernah nggak terharu tiap denger Ben Wyatt ngucapin wedding vow-nya ke Leslie di episode 14 season 5 Parks and Recreation. Pas Ben ngomong begitu, ada flashback in black and white tentang waktu pertama kali Ben dateng ke Pawnee dan kerja sama Leslie, sampai mereka pacaran diem-diem karena takut dipecat, terus Ben dukung Leslie maju kampanye, dsb, dsb.

Kalau ada yang nonton Parks and Recreation mulai awal pasti deh ngerasain roller coaster-nya hubungan Ben dan Leslie. Kisah cinta mereka bukan tipe yang drama menye-menye penuh derita dan airmata, tapi lebih ke hubungan yang dewasa, penuh kompromi dan sikap suportif karena berkisar sama profesi mereka juga (ditambah Parks and Rec kan komedi, hehehe). Dan saya selalu luluh tiap Ben bilang, ‘I was just wandering around everywhere, just looking for you,’

You need to see the previous four and a half seasons to really grasp the meaning of that sentence. :’)

Oh, ditambah saya baru aja ngeh kalau lagu yang dinyanyikan Donna waktu Leslie dan Ron berjalan menuju altar adalah Flower Duet. Dari opera Lakmé-nya Delibes. It’s one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard in my life. Coba dengerin deh. ;)
