“Kaizen!” Mention on “Parks & Rec”

0

Catching up on an episode of the NBC show “Parks & Recreation” from a few weeks back, Rob Lowe's character is talking about going to a Japanese restaurant and he enthusiastically blurts out a few random words, including “Kaizen!” It's completely out of context for anything related to continuous improvement, but still fun to hear. It's the first 10 seconds of the clip or so.
