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".Jon Sandys
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: 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: 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.dan coakley..
