“Clear alcohols are for rich women on diets”

"Clear alcohols are for rich women on diets” is a jocular one-liner that has been printed on many images. The line was said on the American situation comedy television series Parks and Recreation, episode “Win Lose, or Draw” that originally aired on May 10, 2012.

The line was said by the character Ron Swanson, played by actor Nick Offerman.


Wikipedia: Ron Swanson
Ronald Ulysses “Ron” Swanson is a fictional character portrayed by Nick Offerman from the situation comedy television series Parks and Recreation on NBC, created by Greg Daniels and Michael Schur. In the series, Ron is the director of the Parks and Recreation department of fictional Pawnee, Indiana, and the immediate superior of series protagonist Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) until Knope’s election to the Pawnee City Council at the end of Season 4. In demeanor, political philosophy and work ethic, Knope and Swanson are very nearly polar opposites: where Knope is sunny and outgoing, decidedly liberal and constantly working, Swanson is distant, and as a staunch libertarian, is a strong advocate for small government—stating his belief that government should be privatized—and therefore believes that the parks department should not even exist.

Wikipedia: Win, Lose, or Draw (Parks and Recreation)
“Win, Lose, or Draw” is the twenty-second episode and season finale of the fourth season of the American comedy television series Parks and Recreation, and the 68th overall episode of the series. It originally aired on NBC in the United States on May 10, 2012.

In the episode, Leslie (Amy Poehler) and the parks and recreation staff await the results of the city council election.
