Schnectady. Rhymes with Synecdoche

From Brad Spittler, Schenectady, NY:

Actually Roger, the title is the funny way people who live in Schnectady, New York (where the first part of the movie is set) say the name of our city. It's an inside joke for Schnectadians. And, it's pronounced: SY(as in Sid)-NECK-DOH-SHEA.

All you have to do is ask Charlie K.
