Clerks. (1994)

Writer/director Kevin Smith's first film (the first in a so-called "Jersey trilogy") was this dead-pan, low-budget, comedy cult film made in grainy 16 mm and originally rated NC-17 for foul language, perfect for disenfranchised male teens. The foul-mouthed, R-rated independent film comedy with some outrageous laughs and memorable monologues went into general release after its successes at film festivals, and became one of the most popular and successful comedy independent films of all time.

It chronicled one day in the unglamorized, working-class life of two unambitious and irresponsible store clerks with minimum-wage jobs as they went through their work days in a strip mall; the two interacted with customers, discussed movies and girlfriends - all in a spirit of Generation X gloom and ennui with multiple F-bombs; the film's tagline accurately described the main characters: "Just because they serve you doesn't mean they like you." The two clerks who both hated their next-door, dead-end jobs in Asbury Park, Leonardo Township in NJ were:

  • Dante Hicks (Brian O'Halloran) - an unproductive, twenty-two year old college dropout and Quick Stop Groceries convenience store clerk
  • Randal Graves (Jeff Anderson) - Dante's grungy, nihilistic, slacker, anti-social RST Video-store clerk and best friend

From the start of the film, iconic stoner partners and possible drug dealers Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith) loitered outside the next-door's video store as Jay spewed obscenities. Also, Dante's new, current girlfriend of seven months, Veronica Loughran (Marilyn Ghigliotti) also visited the store, and urged him to become motivated to quit his job if he hated it so much and go back to college, since he dropped out five years earlier.

Dante: "I'm not even supposed to be here today."

One of Dante's early customers - later identified as a pushy Chewlies Gum Representative (Scott Schiaffo), delivered an anti-smoking diatribe to the store's customers, with a general rant against the cancer-causing smoking industry that sold cigarettes: "You're spending what? Twenty, maybe thirty dollars a week on your cigarettes?...Fifty-three dollars a week on cigarettes! Come on! Would you give somebody that much money each week to kill you? 'Cause that's what you're doing now, by paying for this so-called privilege to smoke... It's that kinda mentality that allows the cancer-producing industry to thrive. 'Course we're all gonna die some day. But do we have to pay for it? Do we have to actually throw hard-earned dollars down on the counter and say, 'Please Mr. Merchant-of-Death, sir, please, sell me something that'll stink up my breath and my clothes and fry my lungs'? ...Yeah. Yeah, and now here comes the speech about how he's just doing his job by following orders. Friends, let me tell you about another group of hate mongers that were just following orders. They were called Nazis!...Yeah, and they practically wiped an entire nation of people off the Earth just like your cigarettes are doing now."

Randal's advice to Dante: "You should s--t or get off the pot...I'm talking about this thing you have, this inability to improve your station in life...You sit there and blame life for dealin' you a cruddy hand, never once accepting responsibility for the way your situation is...If you hate this job and the people. and the fact that you have to come in on your day off, why don't you quit?")

Randal's discussion with Dante of how his cousin Walter died - "He broke his neck trying to suck his own d--k... Come on, didn't you ever try to suck your own d--k?"

Randal's film closing lines in a "We're So Advanced" diatribe: "You're here of your own volition. You like to think the weight of the world rests on your shoulder, like this place would fall apart if Dante wasn't here. Jesus, you over-compensate for havin' what's basically a monkey's job. You push f--kin' buttons! Anybody could waltz in here and do our jobs. You - you're so obsessed with making it seem so much more epic, so much more important than it really is. Christ, you work in a convenience store, Dante! And badly, I might add! I work in a s--tty video store, badly as well. You know, that guy Jay's got it right, man. He has no delusions about what he does. Us, we like to make ourselves seem so much more important than the people that come in here to buy a paper, or, God forbid, cigarettes. We look down on them as if we're so advanced. Well, if we're so f--kin' advanced, what are we doing working here?"

During a discussion about sex between Dante and his new devoted girlfriend Veronica, Dante confessed that he had sex with 12 different women (including her), while she told him the honest truth about her sexual history including having sex with only three guys (including him). Dante became flabbergasted when she described more details of her past sexual history, and he asked: "...I understood that you had sex with three different guys and that's all you said!...How many?...How many d--ks have you sucked?" - she answered to a shocked Dante after contemplation: "Something like 36" - implying that he was number 37.

The film was noted for their interactions with indecisive, confused, and irate customers. In the film's most appalling sequence, Randal made an X-rated phone order of pornography video titles while a Mom (Connie O'Connor) and young daughter (Ashley Pereira) stood close by at the counter waiting for the title "Happy Scrappy Hero Pup."

Randal engaged in a dialogue with Dante about which Star Wars film was better, The Empire Strikes Back (1980), or Return of the Jedi (1983). During idle chatter, Randal also entered into a ludicrous Return of the Jedi (1983) dialogue with Dante about politics in the ending of Jedi - he brought up the ethical issue of the construction and destruction of the second Death Star by the rebels (led by Lando Calrissian), when innocent independent contractors lost their lives ("...any independent contractors who were working on the uncompleted Death Star were innocent victims when they were destroyed by the Rebels").

Dante recalled a few ridiculous questions his own Quick Stop customers had asked: ("What do you mean there's no ice? I've got to drink this coffee hot?" and "So, how much is this thing anyway?")

After realizing he was all alone in the store with no backup, Dante decided to play street hockey on the store's rooftop with his friends; he posted another sign on the store's door: "TEMPORARILY CLOSED. BE OPENED AFTER FIRST PERIOD."

Dumb & Dumber (1994)

Writer/director Peter Farrelly's very low-brow, gross-out, un-PC, crass physical comedy (with requisite bodily-function jokes) - a cross between a road-trip and buddy-comedy film, told about two 'dumb', manic, intellectually-challenged and clueless adventuring friends in Providence, RI:

  • Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey already famous for Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994) and The Mask (1994))), a chip-toothed, imbecilic and grinning limo driver with a bowl-style haircut,
  • Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels), an entrepreneur running a mobile dog-grooming business ("Mutts Cutts")

Limo-Driver Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey)

Dog Groomer Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels)

Harry's Sheepdog Poochmobile for Business ("Mutt Cutts")

In this deliberately tasteless buddy road film about the two dim-witted, lovable losers, Lloyd and Harry was pursuing disinterested Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly) from Providence to Aspen in Harry's customized sheep-dog van (for his dog grooming business called Mutt Cutts). Earlier when Lloyd had driven Mary to the airport, Lloyd fell in love with her - and raced after her when she left behind (intentionally) her briefcase.

In his ill-fated attempt to return it to her, he ran down the jetway, but didn't know that the plane had already departed - he flipped onto the tarmac with the briefcase still in hand. Lloyd was determined to deliver the briefcase in person to Mary in Aspen - and to pursue his dream girl - although she was married. Unbeknownst to them, they were being pursued by the two thuggish hit-men whose boss, mastermind criminal Nicholas Andre (Charles Rocket) in Aspen, CO, demanded the case's contents.

"We got no food, we got no jobs... our PETS' HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!"

"According to the map, we've only gone 4 inches."

"Tic Tac, sir?"

"She gave me a bunch of crap about me not listening to her enough or something. I don't know. I wasn't really paying attention."

"You drove almost a sixth of the way across the country in the wrong direction! Now we don't have enough money to get to Aspen, we don't have enough money to get home, we don't have enough money to eat, we don't have enough money to sleep!"

Lloyd traded his van for a small mini-bike moped, caught up to Harry, and they decided to continue on to Aspen; Harry congratulated Lloyd for his wisdom: "You know, Lloyd, just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this - and totally redeem yourself!"

(Harry's compliment to Mary about her owls): "Nice set of hooters you got there!...The owls. They're beautiful!"

""What do you think the chances are of a guy like you and a girl like me ending up together?....Hit me with it! Just give it to me straight! I came a long way just to see you Mary, just, the least you can do is level with me. What are my chances?....(she replied that his chances were "one out of a million") So you're tellin' me there's a chance?! YEAH!"

"You'll have to excuse my friend. He's a little slow. The town is back that way!"

During their road trip, during a stop at a Truk Stop's diner for lunch in Pennsylvania, the two had an altercation with angry trucker Sea Bass (Cam Neely) after Harry tossed a salt shaker over his right shoulder for good-luck. Lloyd apologized to Sea Bass and offered to buy a round of Boilermakers for his table, but then told the waitress to scam him: "Sea Bass and the fellas offered to pick up our check. They said just put it on their tab. They're very nice."

To avoid stopping and letting Lloyd pee by the side of the road, Harry suggested that he pee in some empty beer bottles. When a motorcycle radar cop (Harland Williams) drove up next to the Poochmobile van and ordered them to "pull over" for speeding; he became suspicious regarding evidence of open beer bottles, and insisted on testing for alcohol, not knowing that the bottles were filled with Lloyd's urine; after the officer took a swig and began to gag, Lloyd offered: "Tic Tac, sir?"

Lloyd experienced a series of fantasies regarding Mary, including a dream-date to a restaurant, where he dreamt that he defended her honor. He plunged his fist into a kung-fu ninja chef's (Jesse Borja) chest and ripped out his still-beating heart; he put it into a literal Doggy Bag, and then handed it back to the man who fell backwards - dead to the floor.

Along the way, the two mistakenly picked up hitchhiker Joe "Mental" Mentalino (Mike Starr), a thug hired to retrieve the briefcase. He was quickly driven crazy by the pair playing tag on either side of him - with inane antics. During another meal stop at Dante's Inferno restaurant (just East of the Mississippi), Harry and Lloyd taste-tested atomic hot peppers on a dare. Their reactions included cooling their mouths with mustard and ketchup bottles. The two also pranked Mentalino's hamburger with chili peppers; the thug suffered an adverse reaction, grabbed for his stomach ulcer medication, but mistakenly was given rat poison pills he was planning to put into their drinks - and died.

In Aspen, after discovering cash in the briefcase and splurging on brightly colored, gaudy, candy-colored tuxedoes (sky and powder blue for Harry, and tangerine-orange for Lloyd) complete with matching top hats and canes, they attended a weekend Preservation Benefit (for Snow Owls) at Mary's home - Harry complimented Mary about her owls.

Harry was able to acquire a ski-date with Mary for Lloyd, but then without telling Lloyd, went on the ski-date himself; in the film's most recognizable sequence at a ski-resort, brain-dead Harry exclaimed: "Ooh, look, frost" to Mary as they rode on a ski-lift chair - and his tongue became fused to the frozen metal frame pole; as they pried him free while his tongue stretched elastically.

Lloyd retaliated against Harry for his betrayal with Mary by putting a large dose of laxative in his coffee drink; it was an excruciatingly-funny yet gross scene of Harry's extreme agony on the toilet at Mary's house while suffering an intense reaction. Mary asked: "I hope you're not using the toilet, it's broken...the toilet doesn't flush" - and he responded: "I was just shaving."

Lloyd arrived to tell dream-girl Mary that he had her briefcase; he took her to his luxury hotel to hand over the briefcase, and to confess his love to her, although she was married and completely disinterested: ("What do you think the chances are of a guy like you and a girl like me ending up together?"); she briefly answered: "Not good," and informed him that she was already married; with sentimental happiness, Lloyd responded to her claim that their chances were "one in a million" - "So you're saying there's a chance?! YEAH!"

After the briefcase issues were resolved and the mastermind was arrested and Mary was restored to her kidnapped husband, Lloyd and Harry were hitchhiking along a deserted Colorado road, asking: "When are we ever gonna catch a break?" As a bus group of bikinied females on tour representing Hawaiian Tropic pulled up next to them and presented them with an offer for them to be their oil boys, the two inanely directed the bus full of models to a nearby town. But then they ran to catch up to the bus - and breathlessly, Lloyd told the driver that Harry had pointed in the wrong direction!: "You'll have to excuse my friend. He's a little slow. The town is back that way!"; as they waved goodbye to the bus, Lloyd imagined: "Wow, two lucky guys are gonna be driving around with those girls for the next couple months."

Natural Born Killers (1994)

Quentin Tarantino wrote the story for Oliver Stone's controversial study of mass murder - a severely-edited (to get an R rating instead of an unrated or NC-17 rating), over-the-top, visceral satire on the desire of the violence-obsessed, exploitative media in America to maximize profits. It was portrayed with an eclectic style mix of film styles (of 35mm, Super-8, animation, and back projection), including a fast MTV-style with color-switching, skewed camera angles, quick-cut editing, a loud rock soundtrack, some animation, and various special effects.

The film was visually-riveting (eclectic and MTV-style with color-switching), controversial and brutal - and came under critical fire for its own graphic, on-screen violence. The energetic film precipitated at least eight 'copycat' murders and violent incidents by self-professed 'natural born killers,' including two Oklahoma teens who watched the film repeatedly and then went on a similar shooting spree. Some viewed the protagonists as glamorous and romantic folk heroes -- similar to what happened after the release of Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange (1971).

The film's introductory pre-title credits sequence, set in a New Mexico diner, introduced the two white-trash, image-conscious, serial killers-outlaws-lovers, who had already killed six teens during a slumber party:

  • Mallory Wilson/Knox (Juliette Lewis), who was dancing sexily to jukebox music
  • Mickey Knox (Woody Harrelson), prone to excessive violence

During the married couple's psycho, violent cross-country road trip, random killing spree through Southwestern states, they were pursued by sleazy TV show host/reporter Wayne Gale (Robert Downey, Jr.). In the film's shocking ending, the two outlaws in a rural setting shot Gale - broadcast live on camera.

Navaho Indian Warren Red Cloud: "Once upon a time, a woman was picking up firewood. She came upon a poisonous snake frozen in the snow. She took the snake home and nursed it back to health. One day the snake bit her on the cheek. As she lay dying, she asked the snake, 'Why have you done this to me?' And the snake answered, 'Look, bitch, you knew I was a snake.'"

Mickey about his 'true calling' in life: "S--t, man, I'm a natural born killer."

"This is Wayne Gale, unfortunately no longer live. l am wounded. All my crew is dead. l have left my wife, and my girlfriend has left me."

A disturbing flashback was presented of the abusive family life of Mallory - portrayed as a situation-comedy (with a canned laughter track); the fantasy parody about a dysfunctional family was called "I Love Mallory" - similar to I Love Lucy, All in the Family or Married With Children; it featured comic Rodney Dangerfield as Mallory's perverted, sexually-abusive, beer-drinking dad Ed Wilson, her intimidated and neglectful mother (Edie McClurg), and her 10 year-old brother Kevin (Sean Stone). Mallory instantly fell in love at first sight with meat delivery-man Mickey after he came to the Knox family door.

After being charged with auto-theft and escaping prison, Mickey returned to rescue Mallory, and there was a dual death scene of them both murdering Mallory's parents. In the sequence, Mickey struck Ed in the face with a crowbar, dunked his head into a fish-tank to drown him, and struck him with a meat cleaver; then they gagged and bound Mallory's mother in her bed, and burned her alive after dousing her with charcoal lighter fluid and setting her on fire with a flame starter.

During their flight from authorities, they 'married' atop the Rio Grande Gorge bridge by exchanging snake wedding bands and clasping their bloodied hands together as blood dripped down into the river.

American Maniacs TV Show Hosted by Wayne Gale (Robert Downey, Jr.)

Self-serving TV tabloid show host/reporter Wayne Gale (Robert Downey, Jr.), an Australian and a 'yellow journalist', made the pair famous crime celebrities for his sensationalist "American Maniacs" show featuring mass murderers (Charles Manson, Charles Whitman, Richard Ramirez), and elevating their status to admired heroes around the world.

The two killers were pursued through New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah by slimy, fame-seeking author and sleazy sociopathic Detective Jack Scagnetti (Tom Sizemore), where they ultimately claimed 52 victims. Mickey and Mallory entered a Drug Zone store (a scene shot almost entirely in flourescent green), where Mickey assaulted (and killed) the obese druggist (Glen Chin) to acquire snake-bit antidote for their recent bites. A silent alarm was activated and the police arrived (led by Scagnetti) and he seized Mallory; a stand-off and gunfight, a knife threat against Mallory by Scagnetti, and a taser attack ultimately led to their arrest, and the homicidal couple spent at least a year in prison.

Both were declared dangerously violent and criminally insane; in cahoots with the cruel, paranoid and venal prison warden Dwight McClusky (Tommy Lee Jones), Scagnetti's plan was to move the two imprisoned killers from jail to a mental hospital (so they could be murdered during an alleged escape attempt).

Wayne Gale, who had made them famous crime celebrities for his sensationalist "American Maniacs" show, held a post-Super Bowl Batonga Penitentiary interview between Mickey and Gale, when Mickey admitted to his one true calling in life: "S--t man, I'm a natural born killer."

His words incited an incredibly-violent and shocking prison riot and escape scene (all the mayhem was filmed by Gale), and in the midst of a chaotic and full-scale bloody massacre and Mexican stand-off with Mickey, Scagnetti's throat was slashed and he was shot dead point-blank in Mallory's cell by Mallory, using Scagnetti's own gun. There was also a controversial see-through view of the bullet hole in the right hand of Wayne Gale.

The twosome made a getaway-escape with Gale to a rural setting; there, Mallory filmed him for an interview - as he narrated (subtitled): "This is Wayne Gale, unfortunately no longer live. l am wounded. All my crew is dead. l have left my wife, and my girlfriend has left me"; although Gale was able to interview them for a few minutes with his own camera, but failed after begging to be a sole survivor: ("Wait! Don't Mickey and Mallory always leave one person alive to tell the tale?"). Mickey confiscated the camera - to be used as the sole witness - and threatened what they were planning to do:

"You'll be starin' down the barrels of our shotguns, and we're gonna be blowin' your brains all over that tree back there."

And soon after, they brutally executed him as promised, with the camera on the ground (still recording the scene as the sole witness); Gale died as he extended his arms in a crucifix posture.

The ending revealed that the broadcast had been transmitted via Gale's in-ear microphone to a news-show, where the horrified Channel 6 female news anchor Antonia Chavez (Melinda Renna) cried out: "Oh, my God!"; the next WGN news story was about a wedding day massacre.

The film's ending montage consisted of rapidly-spliced together excerpts of recent real-life, homicidal and criminal media circuses that were presented with sensational TV-tabloid coverage, including the Menendez Brothers' trial, the Rodney King beating, and the OJ Simpson murder case, etc.

Pulp Fiction (1994)

Writer/director and B-movie fanatic Quentin Tarantino delivered this non-formulaic and inventive hit - his second feature - an 'independent' film distributed by Miramax, that featured guns, femmes fatales, deadly hit-men, and drugs. The great tri-story classic, a stylish, immensely-popular, violent, off-beat, B-movie cult classic with witty dialogue and heart-stopping violence - skillfully presented a revolutionary script structure with its three interwoven (and fragmented) stories or vignettes told in non-linear order. The unpredictably shuffled, post-modern film, winner of Cannes' prestigious Palme d'Or, shocked with its hip combination of violence, sex, drugs, and profanity (including 269 F-words). The film brought new fame and a revived career to star John Travolta (in an ensemble cast).

The film's plot told about corruption and temptation in LA's sleazy underworld among low-life criminals, thugs, drug-dealers, hitmen, a washed-up crooked boxer, and restaurant-robbing lovers.

It opened with small-time hold-up artists, "Pumpkin" (Tim Roth) and "Honey Bunny" (Amanda Plummer) plotting and robbing patrons in the Hawthorne Grill - a coffee shop-restaurant.

Meanwhile, philosophically-talkative, low-life, black-clad contract hit men Jules Winfield (Samuel L. Jackson) and Vincent Vega (Oscar-nominated John Travolta) engaged in a casual conversation about the strange names given to Parisian McDonald's menu items such as a QuarterPounder with cheese ("a Royale with cheese") and a Big Mac ("Le Big Mac"). They were on their way to San Fernando Valley to carry out a hit for their vengeful, underworld boss Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames) against double-crossing college-aged kids, including Brett (Frank Whaley), who had betrayed his business partner Marsellus by taking a briefcase.

Vincent entertained Marsellus' irresponsible moll wife Mia (Uma Thurman) one evening - they visited a retro-fifties era diner Jack Rabbit Slims (with the MC impersonating Ed Sullivan) - during a dance-off contest, they performed a hip-swiveling twist dance known as the Batusi.

Afterwards, Mia unexpectedly overdosed on heroin when she mistook Vincent's stash for cocaine. Vincent hurriedly drove her over to reluctant, drug-dealing friend Lance's (Eric Stoltz) house for help where she was revived with a direct shot of adrenaline from a large hypodermic syringe plunged into her chest.

By not taking a dive and throwing his last bout as expected, boxer Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis) fought viciously and killed his opponent - then scammed Marsellus by betting on himself (and winning a fortune). His plan was to skip town with his French girlfriend, Fabienne (Maria de Medeiros), travel to his hometown of Knoxville, TN, and then leave the country with the money. Before leaving, he went to retrieve his cherished heirloom, a gold watch left behind in the bedroom of his apartment, where Vincent was awaiting him to execute him. Vincent was caught off guard using the bathroom without his weapon - and Butch gunned him down.

After Butch encountered Marsellus outside, both were injured and retreated to a pawn shop, where two psychopathic hillbillies, shop owner Maynard (Duane Whitaker) and his security guard cousin Zed (Peter Greene), took them prisoner, and bound and gagged them in the basement. While Marsellus was being raped in the next room, Butch escaped and was about to flee, but with a change of heart, heroically saved and rescued Marsellus with a katana samurai sword. Maynard was disemboweled, and Zed was shotgunned in the groin by Marsellus before being tortured and executed with merciless "medieval" revenge. As they parted ways, Marsellus and Butch agreed to never speak again about the embarrassing incident or Butch's betrayal.

In an absurd scene, Vincent accidentally shot back-seat passenger, informant Marvin (Phil LaMarr), in the face at point-blank range; he had turned around, with his gun in his right hand and his mispointed gun fired accidentally. Gangland cleanup specialist The Wolf (Harvey Keitel) was called upon to deal with the immediate crisis at the home of Jules' friend Jimmie (director Quentin Tarantino).

In the film's epilogue - Jules was eating breakfast in the Hawthorne Grill with partner Vincent, when he contemplated quitting the profession (during "a moment of clarity"); he was confronted by the two coffee-shop robbers, Honey Bunny and Ringo, from the film's pre-credits prologue stealing from the patrons; he held his gun on them, and reprised and reinterpreted his Biblical Ezekiel quote speech to "Ringo"; ultimately, to redeem himself, he decided to let the two go with $1,500 from his wallet (but not the briefcase), because he was in a "transitional period."

"Ain't no f--kin' ballpark neither. Now look, maybe your method of massage differs from mine, but, you know, touchin' his wife's feet and stickin' your tongue in the Holiest of Holies ain't the same f--kin' ballpark; it ain't the same league; it ain't even the same f--kin' sport. Look, foot massages don't mean s--t."

Ezekiel 25:17: "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."

"This watch was on your daddy's wrist when he was shot down over Hanoi. He was captured, put in a Vietnamese prison camp. He knew that if the gooks ever saw the watch, it'd be confiscated and taken away. The way your Dad looked at it, this watch was your birthright. He'd be damned if any slope's gonna put their greasy, yellow hands on his boy's birthright, so he hid it in one place he knew he could hide something - his ass. Five long years he wore this watch up his ass. Then, he died of dysentery. He give me the watch. I hid this uncomfortable hunk of metal up my ass two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. Now, little man, I give the watch to you."

"You hear me talkin', hillbilly boy? I ain't through with you by a damn sight. I'm gonna get Medieval on your ass."

"Zed's dead, baby."

"Look at this f--kin' mess, man! We're on a city street in broad daylight here...We gotta get this car off the road. You know, cops seem to notice s--t like you're drivin' a car drenched in f--kin' blood."

The odd dialogues between hitmen Jules and Vincent, including the one about the name that a McDonald's Quarter Pounder with Cheese was known by in France: "A Royale with Cheese." They continued to discuss their gangster boss Marsellus Wallace's (Ving Rhames) jealous attitude toward anyone giving his moll-wife Mia (Oscar-nominated Uma Thurman) a foot massage.

The Jack Rabbit Slim's restaurant dinner date scene, and twist dance sequence (recreating the Batusi).

The OD sequence of Mia Wallace requiring a hypodermic needle injection of adrenaline directly into her heart to be revived.

The unforgettable speech (Butch's childhood flashback from 1973 in Tennessee) by "special visitor" Captain Koons (Christopher Walken) to Butch Coolidge as a young child (Chandler Lindauer) about an important heirloom - a gold watch - that had been in the Coolidge family for three generations.

The scene of boxer Butch Coolidge's (Bruce Willis) surprise discovery of a startled, unsuspecting Vincent - literally caught with his pants down in the bathroom - where he was blown away.

In a pawn shop, Butch freed himself and heroically saved Marsellus by disemboweling pawn shop owner Maynard (Duane Whitaker) with a katana; this allowed Marsellus to take merciless "medieval" revenge on security guard Zed (Peter Greene) who had sodomized him.

Vincent accidentally shot back-seat passenger, informant Marvin (Phil LaMarr), in the face at point-blank range; he had turned around, with his gun in his right hand and his mispointed gun fired accidentally. A "clean-up" specialist Winston Wolfe (Harvey Keitel) was called upon to deal with the immediate crisis at the home of Jules' friend Jimmie (director Quentin Tarantino).

In the film's epilogue - Jules was eating breakfast in the Hawthorne Grill with partner Vincent, when he contemplated quitting the profession (during "a moment of clarity"); he was confronted by the two coffee-shop robbers, Honey Bunny and Ringo, from the film's pre-credits prologue stealing from the patrons; he held his gun on them, and reprised and reinterpreted his Biblical Ezekiel quote speech to "Ringo"; ultimately, to redeem himself, he decided to let the two go with $1,500 from his wallet (but not the briefcase), because he was in a "transitional period."
