I just watched Pee Wee's Big Adventure for the first time in many years, and something struck me as peculiar:
Pee Wee meets Simone at a dinosaur tourist attraction which is (at least in real life) in California. Simone shares her dream with Pee Wee that she wants to visit Paris.
Later, they run into each other again, at a bus station in San Antonio (deep in the heart of Texas). She's about to get on a bus to realize her dreams and go to Paris. But why on earth is she at a bus station in Texas going to France?
I wonder, was this a deliberate subtle joke that Simone was not so bright and actually on her way to Paris, Texas?
At the end,
she is at the Drive-in with her new French boyfriend
so maybe she eventually did make it to her final destination or maybe this was just another crazy coincidence.
But is there anywhere where the writers may have confirmed that she was going to the wrong Paris at that point in the movie?
Edit: I just noticed in the wikipedia page for the dinosaur attraction that they were also featured in the movie Paris, Texas. So could it have been an even-more-direct reference?
