You know that bit at the end of Pulp Fiction when Tim Roth and Amanda Plummer try to rob the diner, and there’s this exchange?

Here’s how the manager appears in the credits.

Bonus: 11 other things you might not know:

Bad things happen when Vince Vega goes on the toilet. Mia overdoses, there’s a robbery, and he’s shot dead.

Despite being husband and wife, Marcellus and Mia never talk in the film.

Only the final two lines of Samuel L. Jackson’s famous “Ezekiel” speech are similar to the ones in the Bible. The rest are made up. It was originally written for Tarantino’s film From Dusk Till Dawn.

This is Butch’s fight card, which of course references two presidents. “Vossler vs Martinez” references two of Quentin Tarantino’s friends from when he worked in a video store.

When Butch frees himself from the pawn shop, he sees a Tennessee license plate (he can collect his money there), and a sign for Killian’s Red on a shelf – but the only lit letters spell “Kill Ed.” We’re then shown Zed’s keyring with the “Z” trinket. Whereupon Butch decides to kill Zed.

Quentin Tarantino eventually admitted it was Butch who keyed Vince Vega’s car.

You can see the games Operation and Game of Life while Mia gets an adrenaline shot. The scene was actually shot with the needle already in Uma Thurman – Travolta pulled it out, and the footage was reversed.

Mia’s Fox Force Five character name, Raven McCoy, is a reference to three blue characters from the X-Men. Raven Darkholme is Mystique’s real name, Hank McCoy is Beast, and she says her character was raised in a circus, like Nightcrawler.

This shot, in which Marcellus sees Butch in the middle of the road, is a little homage to the scene in Psycho in which Marion Crane is seen by her boss.

Jules says he wants to be a drifter at the end of the film. Guess who Samuel L. Jackson’s character is in Kill Bill 2?

11. This is what’s in the briefcase, obviously.
