Revealing mistake: In the iconic Big Kahuna burger scene, Brett gets shot in the shoulder, a normally highly debilitating injury. However, in the frame before he is killed, he throws back his arms with the ordinary range of flexibility, and it becomes obvious that the actor's mobility is not really impaired, and he was only faking an injury.

Continuity mistake: After Fabienne asks Butch about his hard day at the office, Butch turns away from the hotel room window and starts walking towards the bed. But in the next shot his head is facing the window once again. (01:15:55)

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.
