An Actual Conversation About Escape from New York

GABE: So they've made an entire island a prison?

PIPER: Yep. Manhattan Island. Daddy's going there on Monday.

GABE: You're going to a prison on Monday?

PIPER: No, this movie is fiction. It's just made up. I'm going to the real Manhattan Island.

GABE: So they've made an entire island a prison?


GABE: Where do the good people live?

PIPER: They don't live there anymore. They've just left all of Manhattan to the bad people.

GABE: What?

PIPER: Look. It's like if they put a gigantic wall around all of Kansas City and just dumped all the bad people in Kansas City. There wouldn't be any good people there because they will have left. Bad people could be living in our house right now if all of Kansas City was a maximum security prison.

GABE: But this is an island.

PIPER: Yes. And Kansas City is not.

GABE: You know, there's a real prison on an island.

PIPER: I know, it's called Alcatraz.

I never knew how complicated the concept of Escape from New York was.
