After summer break, the Parks Department starts back up. Leslie makes it her mission to round up Ron, Tom, Donna and Jerry so the government-funded productivity can begin! Meanwhile Andy leaves yet another message for April. If she's trying to phase him out, he clearly isn't getting the message. Unfortunately Ben ruins the mini-reunion by telling the crew that due to budget cutbacks, their only job is existing parks maintenance. The only silver lining is the creation of a boys' basketball league that Ron will coach. At the Pawnee Rec Center, Ron uses his coaching position to lecture the boys about basketball-related topics such as capitalism and crying.
