Continuity mistake: While Mia and Vincent are eating at Jack Rabbit Slims, Mia's cigarette keeps changing hands. She holds a cigarette in her right hand, reaches into her pants for her cigarette packet, and takes one from the pack so now she is holding two. She then asks Vincent to roll her one of his, and when the camera cuts back to her she is only holding the cigarette packet. (00:35:35)

Continuity mistake: At Jackrabbit Slim's, the cigarette in Mia's hand switches from right to left to right during the exchange about the $5 milkshake.

Factual error: In The Bonnie Situation when the white kid busts out of the bathroom and empties his "canon", there is absolutely no recoil on the weapon. The gun is either a .357 magnum or .44 cal and would have a huge kick after firing. In this scene, he fires all the shots with barely any recoil at all.

Visible crew/equipment: When Vincent is talking to himself in the bathroom, just before Mia's overdose, the shadow of the boom mic is reflected in the mirror next to him.

Continuity mistake: Vincent crashes his car into Lance's house. The front appears to be wrecked (after the crash we do see a large steam cloud coming from the car's front end which would indicate a ruptured radiator, thus rendering the car not drivable), yet after the ordeal, Vincent drives Mia home, and the car is fine.

Continuity mistake: When Jules enters the apartment, the Big Kahuna Sprite cup changes the direction it's facing in the following shots.

Continuity mistake: When Yolanda is standing on the counter during the robbery, she gets so upset while screaming at Jules that she has a big blob of spittle on the left side of her chin. We cut away and when we cut right back, the spittle blob is gone.

Continuity mistake: After being sprayed in the face with water while tied up in the basement, the next shot shows Butch and Marcellus Wallace having no water anywhere surrounding them on the ground.

Ultimate Warrior

Jules Winnfield: Ezekiel 25:17. 'The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyrannies 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 brothers' keeper and finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.' Now I've been saying that shit for years, and if you've ever heard it, it meant your ass. I never gave much thought to what it meant, I just thought it was a cold blooded thing to say to a mother fucker before I popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some shit this morning that made me think twice. Now I'm thinking it could mean you're the evil man, and I'm the righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here is the shepherd, protecting my righteous ass. Or maybe it means that you're the righteous man, and I'm the shepherd, and it's the world that's evil and selfish. Now I'd like that, but you see that shit ain't the truth. The truth is, YOU'RE the weak, and I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm trying, Ringo. I'm trying real hard to be the shepherd.
