    the moment with the bags of flours made me grin so much — so sweet!(i think that it’s meant to be set in chicago, though, not new york. although the dialogue refers to the “metropolitan transit authority,” which is what it’s called in new york and not, as far as i know, in chicago, the “red line” is definitely not a new york thing, and the bus line used is also definitely not new york-based — in nyc, the buses all have numbers, e.g. the m86 or the b71, rather than being named by street names.)

  3. John – I can’t believe you haven’t been in there already! Try it out and let me know what you think.Heather – thanks for your correction. My knowledge of American bus systems is limited, to say the least, so help is always useful!

    I watched this movie for the nth time with a friend the other night, who asked “What are they eating?” while they are dining together at Dave’s aparartment. I believe they were discussing space camp at the time! I can’t find it anywhere on the internet the food looks bizarre…very geometrical.
    Wondered if you might have any comment?
