“- Look, put yourself in your kid’s shoes. Where would you go? What would you do?

– I’d probably be lying dead in a gutter somewhere… but not Kevin, Kevin is so much stronger and braver than I am. But he’s still a kid lost in a big city, he doesn’t deserve that. He should be at home with his family around his Christmas tree… oh my God, I know where he is, I need to get to Rockefeller Center immediately. ! !

– Come on, get in.”

Kate McCallister (Catherine O’Hara) addressing a police officer

After flying to New York, Kate McCallister (Catherine O’Hara) searches for her son, Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) in the city. She then goes to Times Square.

She shows a picture of her son but to no avail. She then runs to a police car to talk to one of the two officers. If he tries to reassure her, he explains that the police are on the case. After a few questions, she has a flash of lucidity: she knows that Kevin is at the foot of the Rockefeller Center tree.
