The second is about an aging boxer named Butch Coolidge (Creator/BruceWillis) who is paid by Wallace to throw a fight. Instead, Butch bets on himself and wins ([[CasualtyInTheRing the other boxer drops dead of a heart attack during the fight in the process]]), making swift plans to leave the country straight after. But before he can do this, he has to recover a certain gold watch that belonged to his father, which promptly leads into the weirdest day of his life, involving Marsellus, [[spoiler:Vincent]], and a pair of seriously nasty hillbillies.

* RealMenHateSugar: Averted. Winston Wolf is an integral part of the mob, often called to solve any "problems" that arise, is a legend in the organization, and constantly commands respect even from hardened hitmen. When he orders coffee from Jimmy, he asks for "lots of cream and lots of sugar". No one bats an eye.

* BlownAcrossTheRoom: One version of the script lovingly describes [[spoiler: Vince Vega being catapulted through the bathroom door and crashing through the glass shower screen after Butch shoots him. However, probably due to the difficulty of shooting such a scene in a cramped bathroom, this was toned down in the film itself to [[spoiler: Vincent]] merely stumbling backward into the shower from shock.

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: PlayedForLaughs when that one guy misses [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Jules and Vincent]]. At point blank range. [[EpicFail Six times.]] This becomes a Deconstruction when, understandably enough, this causes Jules to suspect DivineIntervention.

* Halfway Plot Switch: A very strange example. But if you put the movie in chronological order the first half (save for the scene about the watch which would be a distant prologue) is about two hitmen who have a very strange morning with one them continuing on to have a very strange evening with his boss' wife. Then the second half is about a boxer who double crosses a powerful gangster and the ensuing hi-jinx that happen as he tries to get away. In this order only a few characters show up in the other half and only for brief moments.
* HandCannon: The giant revolver carried by the third guy in Brett's apartment. Jules and Vincent comment on its size.

* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: {{Trope Namer|s}}, from the scene where Vincent blows a man's brains out in 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.
