Goofs

At the town hall meeting, Leslie asks the townspeople to hold up green squares if they agree and red if they disagree. In the next few shots, several townspeople are shown holding yellow squares (presumably neutral). This is never addressed. See more »

It's Pop in Indiana

It was very hard to stay connected with this episode when throughout they kept referring to "soda" which is a word only used on the coasts.

That was completely distracting.
