O-Ren Ishii: As your leader, I encourage you from time to time, but always in a respectful manner, to question my logic. If you're unconvinced a particular plan of action I've chosen is the wisest, tell me so. But allow me to convince you. And I promise you, right here and now, no subject will ever be taboo. Except the subject that was just under discussion. The price you pay for bringing up either my Chinese or American heritage as a negative is: I collect your fucking head. [Holds up Boss Tanaka's head] Just like this fucker here. Now if any of you sons of bitches got anything else to say, NOW'S THE FUCKING TIME! [Silence] I didn't think so.
One of Tarantino's infamous plug-ins to his movies is The Bride walking when she arrives in Tokyo, there is an ad for Red Apple cigarettes behind her. Red Apples is the cigarette of choice in Pulp Fiction. All cigarettes in that movie are from that brand. See more...

Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003) - 72 mistakes
Bear in mind that this makes many deliberate references to martial arts films of the past, and as such is not supposed to be 100% true to life. Examples of "allowable" mistakes include the Bride taking her sword on the plane, and the fact that the blood levels are obviously ridiculous.
Continuity: When Vernita Green takes her daughter's picture from the notice board in the kitchen she holds it at the top left corner when the camera is behind her. The shot changes to in front of her and she holds it by the bottom left corner, the shot moves behind her again and she holds it by the top left corner.
Continuity: When we see the Bride in the "House of Blue Leaves", her hair is considerably longer than when it was while she was walking through the Tokyo airport. Since we see from time to time in the movie, the notations "one month later," or "4 years later," and there was nothing like that in the sequence, it seems that the Brides' hair grew at least 4 inches from the time she left the airport until the time she gets to the restaurant.
Continuity: When The Bride gets into the Pussy Wagon and tries to move her toes, the shot changes between one taken from her head and one taken from her feet. The one taken from her head shows her two feet touching one another and resting against the closed door. The one taken from her feet (which would have necessitated the door being open) shows her two feet not resting on anything and slightly apart from one another.
Continuity: When Vernita and The Bride are talking in the kitchen and Vernita shoots The Bride from the cereal box, you can see the bullet hole in the back wall of the kitchen, but then a little later that part of the wall doesn't have any bullet holes. Also, not only is the bullet hole not where you see it hit in the first place, it's on the other side of the bride's head, along with the splatter from the cereal box.
Continuity: When The Bride is about to pick a sword from the rack she is about to pick a sword with a red shaft. Then Hanzo says tells her to pick another one from the same rack. When it cuts we can see that the sword with the red shaft is out of sight. Later we see that particular sword is on a low level of the shaft, but when we saw The Bride reaching for it it was obvious she wasn't bending down to get it. So the sword has moved lower on the shaft by itself.
Continuity: The table that Gogo falls on after hitting herself with the mace gets splintered into pieces, with debris underneath and all around where she lies on her back, especially in the area below her feet. Yet in the next shot when the Bride jumps down to resume her attack from above, there is no sign of the debris on the floor.
Continuity: This error only occurs in the Japan version: Here, the little boy (the only one who doesn't wear a mask) "The Bride" fights before confronting the head general of the Crazy 88 had already fought against her in the middle of the battle with the rest of the gang. In that short fight she cut his mask off (explanation why he doesn't wear it at the end), realised he was only a child and then instead of killing him threw him into one of the pools. You actually see him falling into the water. But at the end when they meet again, he is completely dry (except for his sweat).
Continuity: When O-Ren Ishii beheads Boss Tanaka, the bald boss sitting next to Tanaka alternates between holding a fan and not. After Tanaka's head is chopped off, there's a quick shot to bald boss to see his reaction, and he's holding a fan. When the shot goes back to him a second time, the fan is gone.
