"Parks" star Aziz Ansari has gone on record with his desire of a crossover between the hit shows, and now his co-star Retta is joining him.

Speaking with reporters on Wednesday (Oct. 16) at an on-set celebration in honor of the NBC comedy's milestone 100th episode, airing later this season, the comedienne and real-life "Scandal" fanatic sounded off on her dream Donna storyline in a proposed crossover.

"I would like Donna to become a rival of Olivia Pope [ Kerry Washington] and try to, you know, work her way up, try to make moves on Fitz [ Tony Goldwyn]," she revealed. "I'm kinda feeling that."

Ansari piggy-backed on the idea, saying, "We should totally do a 'Parks' episode where Donna has to do crisis management"

In Retta's fantasy, however, things get a little steamy: "But she steals Harrison [ Colombus Short] from the firm because I want to have sex with him. That would be amazing. She 'hires' him, but then she gets it."

"Parks and Recreation" airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on NBC, while "Scandal" rules the roost over at ABC at 10 p.m. on the same night.
