The city as a pie -- with the hard crust being the society matrons in Marx brothers films -- while inside there was the chaos, especially as represented by Harpo, who was appreciated by all the surrealists as well as the Beats. Harpo doesn't allow for continuity, but disrupts the narrative and presents discontinuous moments outside of time.
Falstaff might be said to do the same -- while King Henry V is concerned about time -- and holds to a final vision through the ups and downs of the plot -- Falstaff only cares about a good time in the moment.
