Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) and Vincent Vega (John Travolta) are two hit men who are out to retrieve a suitcase stolen from their employer, mob boss Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames). Wallace has also asked Vincent to take his wife Mia (Uma Thurman) out a few days later when Wallace himself will be out of town. Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis) is an aging boxer who is paid by Wallace to lose his fight. The lives of these seemingly unrelated people are woven together comprising of a series of funny, bizarre and uncalled-for incidents.Written by

Forget it. Too risky. I'm through doing that shit.
You always say that. That same thing every time, "I'm through, never again, too dangerous".
I know that's what I always say. I'm always right, too.
But you forget about it in a day or two.
Yeah, well the days of me forgetting are over, and the days of me remembering have just begun.

A Special Collector's Edition has been released on video in the Spring of 1996. This edition includes a supplementary 11-minute section that features director Quentin Tarantino introducing two never-before-seen scenes, not included in the original theatrical release. The two scenes are as follows:
Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace's first encounter in her apartment is longer. Before leaving to have dinner to the Jackrabbit Slim's, Mia interviews Vincent while shooting with a hand-held video camera. Mia asks Vincent if he's related to folk singer Suzanne Vega and then proceeds with a series of trivia-like questions on his personal preferences ("Brady Bunch or the Partridge Family?") and asks him if he's an "Elvis man or a Beatles man". This explains a later comment ("An Elvis man should love this") that Mia makes in the theatrical version.
The taxi ride and conversation between Butch and driver Esmarelda are longer and there's additional dialogue where Butch explains his feelings about being a boxer and killing his opponent Floyd.

This is my favorite film of all time. Every second of this film is engaging, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that. Tarantino's direction and script is brilliant, and every role is perfectly cast. Everything that happens in this movie has a purpose, and you don't realize it's hidden in plain sight until the final moments
