Continuity mistake: There is a scene where the cops are chasing Mr. Pink. Keep an eye on the hardware store which is followed by a grey building with a sign each side of a door - Mr. Pink runs past it, then the cops run past it, then Mr. Pink runs past it again.

Continuity mistake: Just after Mr. Pink stops Mr. White and Mr. Blonde from fighting, watch Mr. Blonde's tie. It's secured with a tie pin - initially rumpled so the top bit "bumps", then smooth for a couple of shots, then back to having a bump.

Continuity mistake: During the chase, we see that there are only three cops (we see a head-on shot of the three cops with an empty sidewalk behind them), but when Mr. Pink opens the car door and starts firing in the direction of the cops, the first three cops (the thin ones) scramble back around the corner. Just then, a fourth cop (the fat one) pops around the corner from nowhere and gets shot.

Continuity mistake: During Mr. Pink's flashback, he's chased by three cops across the sidewalk of a long, straight avenue - apparently, they all pass the same exact spot numerous times. Notice the white van parking next to the sidewalk as the policemen run next to it - it is followed by a yellow truck. Look closely beneath it, and you'll spot a place where the sidewalk mixes with the road. Later on, in the wide shot of Mr. Pink running, he passes next to the same exact white van, and the same spot where the road mixes with the sidewalk is visible just next to it, right as he picks up the briefcase behind it, yet the yellow truck is gone. Since the cops are behind him, that place should be far away, as he's been running along a long avenue. [To make the street look longer, the filmmakers shot the chase a few more time on the same short street to make it look like a long avenue. Yet the white van marks the same spot, and thus it is a mistake.].

Continuity mistake: In a flash back scene, Mr Blonde and Nice Guy Eddie are about to play fight. However, when they hit the floor, they have both changed sides, even though the way they were going for each other showed they would not fall opposite sides.

Add time

Continuity mistake: After the climactic shootout near the end of the movie, Mr. White falls on his elbows, facing Eddie's body. In the next shot, Mr. Pink leaves. When he is leaving, Mr. White is facing the back of the warehouse, where Mr. Pink hid. That is a near 45 degree turn when Mr. White was in both shots.

Continuity mistake: In a scene near the end, Joe arrives at the warehouse and tells everyone that Orange is the informer. We frequently see Orange on the floor, however the blood patch he is lying in changes from wet to dried to very wet to larger and smaller and back and forth. Also sometimes there are bullet casings around him or the magazine he dropped depending on the shot.

Continuity mistake: When Mr. White is trying to calm Mr. Orange in the warehouse White pulls out a comb and uses it on Orange then goes to put it in his pocket, but lays it on Orange's chest and never picks it back up. In the next sequence when talking to Mr.Pink, White washes his hands and face, puts some water in his hair, pulls a comb out of his pocket and uses it.

Continuity mistake: In the "Mr. Blonde" segment, Vic takes a cigarette from a case on Joe's desk and puts it in his mouth. Soon after he takes it out. Then there is a shot from the hallway and the cigarette magically appears back in his mouth, where he takes it out for a second time.

Continuity mistake: When Nice Guy Eddie (Chris Penn) shoots the cop tied in the chair at the end, watch where Eddie points the gun, as opposed to where the blanks explode in the cop's chest. Where Eddie was pointing the gun, he probably would have shot the cop in the crotch.

Continuity mistake: During Mr. Pink's flashback, as he's being chased by the three cops, he pushes a man with a grey jacket aside as he comes between him and another man; in one shot, the man with the grey jacket falls onto the ground, but in the next angle, he just moves to the side.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Pink and Mr. White reflect on Mr. Blonde's madman behavior during the robbery, Mr. White says "I came this close to taking him out." A few minutes later, that line is unintentionally attributed to Mr. Pink. It happens just after Mr. Blonde arrives at the warehouse with his soda, when he and Mr. White nearly get into a fistfight. As Mr. Pink moves to stop the fight, Mr, White says something to the effect of, "Now you're taking his side?" a few minutes ago, you said you thought about taking him out." An incredulous Mr. Blonde says "You said that?" Mr. Pink admits that he did, even though he didn't, but now maintains that Mr. Blonde is the only one he can trust: "He's too homicidal to be working with the cops." This mistake is caused by QT changing the original script (where the "I came this close" - line was originally for Mr. Pink) but forgetting to also alter the later reference.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mr. White and Mr. Pink get in a fight and draw their pistols, you hear both of them pull the hammer back. In the next shot, the camera is behind Mr. White, looking down at Mr. Pink. You can see that the hammer on his pistol is down, not up.

Continuity mistake: During Mr. Pink's flashback, He shoots the four cops hiding behind the corner while jacking the car. When looking from Mr. Pink's point of view, you can see that the fat cop gets shot and leans on the ground, yet when we see this from the policemen's point of view, the fat cop isn't injured and fires without a problem, when suddenly he gets shot.

Quotes

Mr. Pink: Hey, why am I Mr. Pink?
Joe: Because you're a faggot.
Mr. Pink: Why can't we pick our own colors?
Joe: No way, no way. Tried it once, doesn't work. You got four guys all fighting over who's gonna be Mr. Black, but they don't know each other, so nobody wants to back down. No way. I pick. You're Mr. Pink. Be thankful you're not Mr. Yellow.
Mr. Brown: Yeah, but Mr. Brown is a little too close to Mr. Shit.
Mr. Pink: Mr. Pink sounds like Mr. Pussy. How 'bout if I'm Mr. Purple? That sounds good to me. I'll be Mr. Purple.

Mr. White: Who cares what your name is?
Mr. Pink: Yeah, that's easy for you to say, you're Mr. White. You have a cool-sounding name. All right look, if it's no big deal to be Mr. Pink, you wanna trade?
Joe: Hey! NOBODY'S trading with ANYBODY. This ain't a goddamn fucking city council meeting, you know. Now listen up, Mr. Pink. There's two ways you can go on this job: my way or the highway. Now what's it gonna be, Mr. Pink?
Mr. Pink: Jesus Christ, Joe, fucking forget about it. It's beneath me. I'm Mr. Pink. Let's move on.
