“Can I get the Cezanne?”

I think he means the saison.

Third Man bar on Avenue C. Customers looking at the menu.

“Who is the third man?”

Bartender: Have you seen the movie?

“There’s a movie?”

Not surprising, but will be stuck in my head all night.

Since no one knows the place is Austria that served as the background, this too is moot.

But it was all filmed on location in Wales. Beautiful sewers, Cardiff.

The first and only time I was in Vienna, I was taking a rather random walk and I turned up a street.  I walked by a building with a pair of caryatids framing the entrance.  "I've been here before," I thought.  Which was absurd, because obviously I'd never been there.

 

What was strange was that my very vivid memory was appearing in my mind in black and white.

 

I looked across the street and saw an equestrian statue.  "This is getting REALLY strange.  It looks SO familiar.  I'm SURE I've been here.  But I never have.  How can this be?"

 

Still the memories were black and white.

 

It wasn't till I got back to my hotel, hours later, that I realized I'd walked by the exterior of Harry Lime's apartment building.

that is great. 


Summarizing, then, we assume that relational information is not subject to a corpus of utterance tokens upon which conformity has been defined by the paired utterance test.

I had meant to take the sewers part of the Third Man Tour when in Vienna last year but couldn't fit it in. And btw: thank you to Rich for his Vienna recommendations. My dinner at Mraz und Sohn was my favorite meal of 2018 (other than the orange wines :)).

"Why is it called the Third Man tour?"

 

Have you seen the movie?

 

"There's a movie?"
