GIRL YOU’LL BE A WOMAN SOON
Love it or hate it, Pulp Fiction in all its glory..
The film is known for its eclectic dialogue, ironic mix of humor and violence, nonlinear storyline, and a host of cinematic allusions and pop culture references.
Vincent: Look, Mr. Wolfe, I respect you. I just don’t like people barking orders at me, that’s all. The Wolf: If I’m curt with you, it’s because time is a factor. I think fast, I talk fast, and I need you two guys to act fast if you want to get out of this. So pretty please, with sugar on top, clean the fucking car.
Jules: Oh, I’m sorry. Did I break your concentration? I didn’t mean to do that. Please, continue. You were sayin’ something about “best intentions”? [silence] What’s the matter? Oh, y-you were finished? Oh, well, allow me to retort. What does Marsellus Wallace look like?
Jules: And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.
Vincent: [parks car outside a West Hollywood restaurant] What the fuck is this place?
Mia: This is “Jack Rabbit Slim’s”.
An Elvis man should love it.
Vincent: Come on, Mia. Let’s go and get a steak.
Mia: You can get a steak here daddy-o.
Don’t be a… [Mia draws a “square” in the air, ]
Vincent: Oh after you, Kitty Kat.
Mia: Don’t you hate that?
Mia: Uncomfortable silences. Why do we feel it’s necessary to yak about bullshit in order to be comfortable?
Vincent: I don’t know. That’s a good question.
Mia: That’s when you know you’ve found somebody special. When you can just shut the fuck up for a minute and comfortably enjoy the silence.
Mia: I do believe Marsellus Wallace, my husband, your boss, told you to take ME out and do WHATEVER I WANTED. Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good.
Lance: If you’re all right, then say something.
Jules: Nobody’s gonna hurt anybody. We’re all gonna be three little Fonzies here, and what’s Fonzie like?
[Yolanda stares at him, confused] Jules: Come on, Yolanda! What’s Fonzie like?! Yolanda: Cool? Jules: What? Yolanda: Cool. Jules: Correct-a-mundo! And that’s what we’re gonna be – we’re gonna be cool.
Pulp Fiction is a 1994 American crime film directed by Quentin Tarantino, who also co-wrote the screenplay along with Roger Avary.
Nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture; Tarantino and Avary won for Best Original Screenplay. It has been described as a “major cultural event”, an “international phenomenon” that influenced television, music, literature, and advertising. Critics have called Pulp Fiction “the most influential film of the decade & unquestionably the most influential American movie of the 90s”.
Several scenes and images from the film achieved iconic status; in 2008, Entertainment Weekly declared, “You’d be hard-pressed, by now, to name a moment from Quentin Tarantino’s film that isn’t iconic.”Jules and Vincent’s “Royale with Cheese” dialogue became famous.
The adrenalin shot to Mia Wallace’s heart is on Premiere‘s list of “100 Greatest Movie Moments”. The scene of Travolta and Thurman’s characters dancing has been frequently homaged, most unambiguously in the 2005 film Be Cool, starring the same two actors. The image of Travolta and Jackson’s characters standing side by side in suit and tie, pointing their guns, has also become widely familiar.
In 2007, BBC News reported that “London transport workers have painted over an iconic mural by ‘guerrilla artist’ Banksy…. The image depicted a scene from Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, with Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta clutching bananas instead of guns.” Certain lines were adopted popularly as catchphrases, in particular Marsellus’s threat, “I’m ‘a get medieval on your ass.”
Jules’s “Ezekiel” recitation was voted the fourth greatest movie speech of all time in a 2004 poll.
