As a result, Ron chooses to sit in silence while Leslie pesters him to get him to talk.
He eventually can't take anymore of Leslie's nonsense and agrees to speak with her for three minutes. To aid her in her discussion with Ron, Leslie draws up a chart with a number of key events that occurred around and that may have contributed to the demise of her friendship with Ron, culminating in the infamous "Morningstar" incident.
It is finally revealed that Morningstar was a luxury apartment complex that Ron's building company championed and built adjacent to the Pawnee Commons. Leslie was furious with Ron for the fact that he did not tell her in advance about the plans, combined with the project's go-ahead to remove many of the surrounding houses, including Ann's old house.

However, before Leslie can get anymore out of him, Ron's watch beeps to signal that three minutes is up. He subsequently scampers into his old office to avoid discussing the matter any further.

Two hours go by and Leslie has sifted through a number of the pair's old projects and documents in order to expand her original timeline chart.

She stumbles across her Parks Department job application and is keen to read what Ron's very first impressions of her were. His words were blatant and described plainly how he and Leslie would never be able to mesh due to their completely different ideals, and that it would be a volatile relationship from the start. However, he was adamant that Leslie should be hired. Ron explains that it was her interview that had him convinced—to him, she was tough and honest, and stood up for what she believed in even if it might have damaged her chances of getting the job.
The two have finally opened up to each other, but Ron can't bear to have the conversation get anymore sappy. He tries one final thing to get out:
