Ron and Leslie head to Indianapolis to receive a commendation for reviving the Harvest Festival. Before they leave, Ann confides in Leslie that she thinks Chris might be cheating on her. Tom and Ben bond at a club where Tom hopes to pitch his cologne, "Tommy Fresh", to a fragrance mogul. At the same club, April and Andy plot to see who can score the most free stuff. In Indianapolis, Ron is devastated to discover that his favorite steak restaurant is closed. After retiring to Chris' apartment, Leslie discovers evidence that Chris is cheating and Ann races from Pawnee to confront him. She learns that not only is Chris not cheating on her, but he in fact broke up with her a week earlier without Ann realizing it.

This Television Series is referred to by Indianapolis part of Parks and Recreation Season 3
Ann thinks Chris is cheating on her, so she asks Leslie to check things out while she is in Indianapolis (where Chris lives). Leslie tells Ann that Chris won't be able to keep anything from her, because in high school, her nickname was Angela Lansbury, referring to Lansbury's role in the television series 'Murder, She Wrote'. However, Leslie then says her nickname was most likely due to her haircut, not her investigative skills.
