Trivia

Early in production, Quentin Tarantino had contemplated casting Tim Roth as Vincent, and Gary Oldman as Jules, re-writing those characters as "two English guys".


Quotes

Pumpkin: Forget it. Too risky. I'm through doing that shit.
Yolanda: You always say that. That same thing every time, "I'm through, never again, too dangerous".
Pumpkin: I know that's what I always say. I'm always right, too.
Yolanda: But you forget about it in a day or two.
Pumpkin: Yeah, ...


Goofs

(at around 1h 12 mins) In the taxi, Butch throws his boxing clothes out a fully-open window, and Esmarelda tosses a butt out her open window. The squealing tires, near-miss as she leaves the alley, and background indicate she's driving fast. But as Butch smokes the cigarette, its smoke drifts slowly through the car, indicating it isn't moving because no wind is coming through the open windows. However, the back projection is heavily stylized in black & white, so the director clearly did not intend this to be a realistic shot. Although the shot may have been intentionally unrealistic, when Butch throws his gloves out the window a "plop" can be clearly heard, indicating no vehicle movement.

Alternate Versions

The network television version makes the following alterations:

  • Dubbed dialogue in Pumpkin and Honey Bunny's opening conversation
  • Omission of the entire scene after Vincent and Jules get off the elevator talking about foot massages
  • Omission of a part of the drug transaction scene starting with Vincent's discussion of how his car was keyed
  • Omission of the "shooting-up" sequence
  • The audio of Uma Thurman snorting cocaine as "Son of a Preacher Man" plays is absent
  • Inclusion of the "Mia Wallace" interview scene
  • Omission of the scene where Vincent finds Mia in her overdosed condition
  • Omission of the "oral pleasure" scene
  • When Butch opens the door to reveal the sodomy of Marsellus, an image of Maynard has been superimposed to prevent from seeing Zed's actual thrusting
  • Omission of the entire scene where Jules and Vincent argue after blowing Marvin's head off (both in the car and in Jimmy's bathroom)
  • Omission of the entire scene of Jules and Vincent cleaning up the back of the car
  • Among the list of words cut out: all variations of "fuck", "shit", "God damn", and "nigger". The use of the word "bitch" is permitted in some cases ("Does he look like a bitch?") but not in others ("Tell that bitch ['babe' in the TV version] to be cool!")
