Ben Wyatt’s feelings about Game of Thrones rival Leslie Knope’s feelings about Joe Biden. So when Leslie gave her husband an exact replica of the Iron Throne – a.k.a. the seat of power in HBO’s fantasy drama Game of Thrones – during Parks and Recreation’s latest episode, “Anniversaries,” Ben freaked. Out.
We only got to a see a few short moments of his epic reaction on the show itself. Thankfully, NBC has released an extended version of the scene online. In the clip, an overly excited Ben hops around the room and then passes out – just a little! – before jumping back up and sitting in the throne, declaring, “I’m never getting up.” He proceeds to kick Leslie out so he can have some alone time with the throne, then recites a variety of lines from the show in what is apparently his Game of Thrones voice. We’d probably do the same.
