* An entire episode, "I Heart NJ," of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' is dedicated to a series of arguments between the characters regarding whether New York or New Jersey is superior. Long-term relationships hang in the balance as they try to resolve this question. The result is an episode that is headscratchingly [[ContinuityLockout locked-out]] for viewers outside of the Tri-State area.

* An entire episode, "I Heart NJ," of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' is dedicated to a series of arguments between the characters regarding whether New York or New Jersey is superior. Long-term relationships hang in the balance as they try to resolve this question. At first the argument starts off as a reasonable debate regarding the quality of life and standard of living between the two before devolving into a childish squabble about landmarks and hometown celebrities. The result is an episode that is headscratchingly [[ContinuityLockout locked-out]] for viewers outside of the Tri-State area.

** By contrast, though, the rest of the movies in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse make an effort to avert the trope, considering how much the mainstream MarvelUniverse exemplifies it (see Comics tab). The ''Film/IronMan'' films move Tony Stark's main residence to Los Angeles (with much of the third film being set in Tennessee and Miami), the portions of ''Film/{{Thor}}'' set on Earth take place entirely in New Mexico, London is the primary Earth location of ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'', the bulk of ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' takes place in Europe during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, and ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' takes place in Washington D.C.

Compare FultonStreetFolly, the localized version where everything inexplicably happens in Lower Manhattan because it's relatively easy to film there, and NewYorkIsOnlyManhattan, which describes the tendency to ignore the Outer Buroughs in fiction. See also TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse for {{Anime}} and Japanese TV, BritainIsOnlyLondon for UK productions, and HongKong for Chinese-language equivalents. If the writers pick someplace off the beaten path instead, you've got AliensInCardiff.
