About

"April, No!" is a memorable quote uttered by the character April Ludgate on the American situational comedy Parks and Recreation. Online, a screenshot from the scene has been used in an image macro series about April 2020.

Origin

On October 17th, 2013, the episode "Gin It Up!" of Parks and Recreation aired in the United States. In the episode, the character Leslie Knope (portrayed by Amy Poehler) suggests her staff place "question mark stickers" on posters (clip below).[1] One member, April Ludgate (portrayed by Aubrey Plaza), asks if she can have the stickers to "put them on stop signs."
