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
In the diner scene, Jules sarcastically indicates the brief case contains his boss's dirty laundry. Shortly after he utters this line, the proverbial "tables turn" in the standoff with Tim Roth's character and Jules gets the upper hand. An extremely similar scene appears at the end of 1972's 'Superfly' where Priest (Ron O Neal) is accosted by a group of thugs who want the contents of his briefcase. Priest is at first outnumbered, but then gets the upper hand in the standoff...when the briefcase is opened, the contents are literally dirty laundry. See more »
All the lights are off in the diner. Even in daytime, the overhead lights would be on. See more »
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.

Most network television prints eliminate (or at least blank out) profanity and dialogue to an absurd degree. For example, the aftermath of the scene where Vincent shoots Marvin by accident is replaced by a fade to black and a John Travolta sound-alike saying "Oh man I just shot Marvin in the face", and Butch's profane outburst in the hotel room is silenced (both making his physical rage unintentionally comical and neutralizing the actual punchline, "It's not your fault.").

In my humble opinion, I believe that this is Tarentino's finest movie. As I grew older and older I've come to realize that this masterpiece from the 90s aged like fine wine. It's easily one of the most rewatchable movies considering it's filled with an insane amount of quotables, great cinematography and most importantly, charming characters that will stand the test of time.
I truly believe that this movie is a work of art, the way Tarentino handpicked the songlist for the soundtrack helped elevate every single scene of the movie to a whole new level.
To cut this short, this movie is easily one of the best movies ever made, and my personal favorite movie and I urge anyone who hasn't seen it to give it a shot.
