At the end of the movie Life After Beth (2014), Zach mentioned "Machu Picchu", but I did not understand the meaning. What did he say and why?

    I at least assume you know what Machu Picchu is?

  • Yes, but did he literally meant Machu Picchu or was he referring to something else? Oct 6, 2014 at 22:45
  • Can you include the full quote? Oct 7, 2014 at 0:30
  • No, I can't remember the full quote, I just recall him saying that, maybe he meant literally the place... Oct 7, 2014 at 0:57

Yes, he meant the actual place. Zach wanted to get somewhere far away and this is the most remote place he could think of. It's also an amusing line because he's being desperate and naive:

I think we need to get far away from here where the zombies can't get to us. [...] Machu Picchu. It's remote and safe. Look, I've got a map. I think if we take side streets and sidewalks...

He probably got the idea earlier in the film: when he finds out that Beth is alive, they watch TV together with her parents and the show is about Machu Picchu.
