Kill Bill: Volume 2

Trivia: B.B.'s name is derived from both of her parents; Bill and Beatrix.

Trivia: The flute David Carradine ("Bill") uses in Vol. 2 is an actual flute he used in the original Kung-Fu TV series.

Trivia: The car Darryl Hannah drives is the same type as Burt Reynolds' Trans-Am from the Smokey and the Bandit films. In fact, she's fairly sure it's the actual one. At one point while shooting she was driving along with QT in the passenger seat when he excitedly yelled "pull off here.", pointing down a dirt track. She fishtailed the car down the road, going at a fair old speed, when she suddenly noticed she was heading straight for a hole. Quentin yelled "jump it. It's just a movie, nothing can happen." Choosing common sense she squealed to a halt just before the hole. QT's comment? "Burt Reynolds would have jumped it".

Trivia: A piece of Bill's dialogue makes a fairly subtle reference to Reservoir Dogs when he says to the Bride something along the lines of, "I hear the kneecap is a very painful place to get shot." This homages Harvey Keitel's character telling Mr. Orange that "along with the kneecap, the stomach is the most painful place someone can be shot."

Trivia: After Daryl Hannah has her eye plucked, she falls on the floor onto her back and begins screaming and flailing her arms and legs much like she did in Blade Runner after she was shot.

Trivia: Though the Bride didn't kill Budd herself, her namesake did: the snake Black Mamba.

Camilla

Trivia: Even though we can't really see her face, when Budd drags the Bride out of the truck, dumps her on the ground, then hauls her along the ground, that's actually Uma Thurman.

Trivia: The church the El Paso Massacre takes place is on a street called Agua Caliente - "Hot Water".

Trivia: When the Bride is in her coffin and she slides her boot up to her and pulls out the straight edge knife, this is an homage to Michael Madsen's (Budd) character, Mr. Blonde, in Reservoir Dogs (in fact, it's the same knife). In RD he pulls a straight edge knife out of his boot before he removes Marvin's ear in the famous "ear scene."

Trivia: It wasn't until over 10 years later in 2018 that Uma Thurman revealed Quentin Tarantino accidentally made her crash a car and injure herself during production of this film, which she found reckless and caused a rift in their friendship. This is why they haven't worked together since.

Trivia: There is a piece of music which plays for a split second when the camera is looking down on the Bride's body in the church. That exact same piece of music is also heard for a split second in Reservoir Dogs when Mr. Blond is flicking through the radio stations (right before he tortures the cop) looking for K. Billy's super sounds of the 70s.

Trivia: The Bride never speaks to Budd throughout the whole film.
