Joe: Give me that book.
Mr. White: Are you gonna put it away?
Joe: I'm gonna do whatever the fuck I want with it.
In the torture scene, Mr Blonde turns the radio on and listens to "Stuck in the Middle with You" as he proceeds to torture the cop. Mr Orange shoots him before Mr Blonde turns the radio off, but somehow the radio is never heard again in the film. See more...
With reference to another bit of trivia that points out Michael Madsen's Vic Vega in this film and John Tratolta's Vincent Vega in "Pulp Fiction" (1994). They were written to be brothers. See more...

Reservoir Dogs (1992) - 11 questions
The "questions" section is for any random questions that occurred to you while watching this film, or anything you didn't entirely understand, and which Google or the IMDb can't help with. Submit them as a question, and hopefully someone will answer (the bold comments in brackets) - check back regularly. If the answer is wrong, or missing information, please use the "clarify answer" option. Don't feel limited - want to know what music played in a certain scene? Whether this was the first film to use a certain effect? Here's the place to ask!
Question: If Mr. Orange had not been killed would have he had to face charges for shooting the woman in the car, despite being a cop on an infiltration job?
Answer: There would defiently have been an investigation. But it was also self defence and /or a reflex action of being shot himself. Also he could claim that Mr. White shot her.
Question: On the 10th Anniversary Special Edition DVD, why does the widescreen disc have 22 chapters, while the full screen disc only has 8?
Answer: With eight chapters you can't always find the precise moment of the movie, though with 22 chapters you can find the moment you wish to view easier without having to chose the closest chapter and wait 5-10 minutes. More and more new DVDs have a high number of chapters.
Question: Is there any particular significance to the thieves' color-coded aliases, or did Quentin Tarantino merely assign them at random?
Answer: Not sure if QT assigned the names in any particular order, but I believe that the inspiration to use colours as names was taken from the excellent movie "The Taking of Pelham 123" starring Walter Mathau.
Question: Why is the film called "Reservoir Dogs"? Is there any special significance to why Tarantino chose the title?
Answer: When Tarantino worked in a video store, he once recommended to a customer "Au revoir les enfants". The customer screamed back that he "did not want any Reservoir Dogs!". Tarantino must have thought it sounded cool.
