I will discuss correlation functions in Jackiw-Teitelboim gravity and the Schwarzian theory, with a strong emphasis on their bulk gravitational interpretation. Boundary two- and four-point functions will be considered and interpreted in terms of virtual black holes and shockwaves. Then, taking a specific definition of bulk coordinates, we consider bulk two-point functions and discuss bulk locality, and the Unruh effect including gravitational corrections. Finally, I study a semi-classical evaporating black hole and discuss information loss in this set-up.
