the rule of thumb for the trope is three days or less and the movie is four days plus a flashback
* ExtremelyShortTimespan: Aside from Butch's flashback, the entire film takes place over four days: ** Monday (about 7:30am - 11:00am) - Vincent and Jules talk to Brett and deal with Marvin, Pumpkin and Honey Bunny rob a diner, Jules retires, Marsellus and Butch make a deal ** Tuesday (late evening - around 2:00am) - Vincent shows Mia a good time ** Wednesday night - Thursday morning - "The Gold Watch"

It doesn't have to be 00 Buck to penetrate, especially not at that range where something as small as #4 Buckshot would be sufficient to achieve through and through penetration in a human being of decidedly average size (like Zed).
* OnlyAFleshWound: By the way Marsellus says what specific time period he's going to get on the ass of the guy that just raped him, you get the impression that the guy would live to face it. Despite the fact that he just shot him in his ''[[GroinAttack crotch]]'' with a shotgun! [[ShownTheirWork However, birdshot or anything smaller than 00 buckshot penetrates quite poorly]], so the chance of his injuries being fatal may be...unfortunately small.

* TheReveal: Marsellus is either shown only from the back or mostly out of focus for about two-thirds of the movie. Only after [[spoiler:does he run into Butch on the street during The Gold Watch arc]] is his face clearly shown throughout the rest of the film.

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: As Vincent is walking to his and Mia's booth toward the back of Jack Rabbit Slim's, he passes - sometimes within touching distance - performers dressed as Ed Sullivan, MarilynMonroe, Mamie Van Doren, {{Zorro}}, Creator/JamesDean, and JerryLewis, among other icons. He doesn't give any of them a second glance.
