* TheVerse: WordOfGod is that this movie takes place in the same universe as ''Film/PulpFiction'' (Marcellus Wallace is referenced), and that Vic Vega/Mr. Blonde is [[JohnTravolta Vincent Vega's]] brother. Common {{fanon}} is that the mysterious case in ''Film/PulpFiction'' held the diamonds from this movie's heist. Tarantino himself confirmed that this was supposed to be the case, but changed it to an [[TheUnreveal Unreveal]] because he liked the idea of the audience coming up with their own interpretation.

* CelebrityParadox: During the famous opening scene, where the guys have a SeinfeldianConversation about [[FreudWasRight the true meaning]] of Music/{{Madonna}}'s "Like a Virgin", nobody seems to notice that Madonna's former brother-in-law is sitting at the table sipping coffee; Nice Guy Eddie is played by Chris Penn, the younger brother of Madonna's ex-husband Creator/SeanPenn.

Added DiffLines:

*** [[spoiler: White shoots Joe and Eddie in the same second. It's easier to see playing the film on half-speed, which is much easier in these post-VHS times.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BottleEpisode: Creator/QuentinTarantino has said he wrote the script like this to keep the costs down to make it more likely to be filmed. The majority of the movie takes place in the warehouse, while Mr. Orange's apartment and Joe's office were located in the same building. The building was a former funeral home, which is why there was a hearse and coffins inside.

** Mr. Blonde: He doesn't like alarms. Don't insinuate that he has a "boss". In spite of his violent reactions, we never actually see him lose his temper.

* PragmaticVillainy: Played with. Mr. White and Mr. Pink disapprove of Mr. Blonde's killing spree...not because they have any qualms whatsoever about killing someone (they don't) but because they need a reason, even if that reason is "I'm fleeing the cops and you're standing in my way." Mr. Blonde appears to kill and torture ForTheEvulz. However, while it's true that his recklessness and lack of professionalism are their primary complaint, it's also clear that they both [[EvenEvilHasStandards feel particularly bad about one of Mr. Blonde's victims who was "maybe nineteen...if that".]]

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: We learn everything we need to know about the main four gangsters in the opening diner scene. Mr. Pink refuses to tip the waitress, showing that he's self-centered and has little sympathy for others. Mr. White gets angry at him and passionately explains why waitresses need tips, showing that he's good-natured and sympathetic. Mr. Blonde jokingly offers to shoot Mr. White for not returning Joe his notebook, hinting his eventual reveal as a violent psychopath. Also, notice that when Joe asks the crew which one of them didn't tip, [[spoiler:Mr. Orange immediately rats Mr. Pink out -- foreshadowing the revelation that he's the rat]].
