- "Right now your only concern is putting Hope in a car and driving west, and don't stop until you hit Omaha."
- ―Jessica Jones
Omaha is the largest city in the state of Nebraska.
The Shlottmans raised their sons to be cabal, frugal and dedicated, and Hope grew up to become a gifted athlete, gaining an athletic scholarship at the New York University, so she moved out from Nebraska.
The Shlottmans had regular contact with Hope, talking to her at least once a week. However, during one of their latest conversations, Hope called her parents saying she needed to take a break, and that she was going to quit both the team and her apartment, so Barbara and Bob left Omaha and took a plane to check her out.
