* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: {{Trope Namer|s}}, from the scene where Vincent blows Marvin's brains all over the back of Jules's car with a negligent discharge. Please note that although Vincent blames a bump, the car is moving pretty smoothly. They only get bumpy when Jules is on the phone, after Marvin's brains are splattered over the back window.
