** Alternatively, the entire performance was intended for Marvin instead of Brett. No point in wasting your breath lecturing someone you're just going to kill anyway. But Marvin probably dedicated the rest of his life to staying on Marcellus Wallace's good side.
*** He might have, it's impossible to say for sure given what happens in the next scene.



* In the '50s style restaurant, when Mia orders a milkshake, the waiter asks her whether she wants the "Martin-Lewis" milkshake or the "Amos 'n Andy" milkshake. It took me years till I got the joke. When watching the movie for the nth time and it came to that scene, I thought to myself, "Who's Martin Lewis?" Then it dawned on me that it was a reference to Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, and it meant that the milkshake was vanilla, whereas "Amos 'n Andy" was chocolate.

* Vincent dies because he shits where he eats. He first comes close to doing so when he is tempted by Mia (his boss's wife) and then he seals his fate when he takes a bathroom break in Butch's apartment (the place he was working)
** And the one time he didn't take a shit where he metaphorically ate, was when he took a shit where he literally ate, at the diner.

* In the pawnshop is a neon sign for Killian's Irish Red lager. Some of the letters on the sign are out, causing it to read "Kill Ed." When coupled with the silver "Z" on Zed's keychain, it reads "Kill Zed." Which is exactly what's going to happen offscreen.

* In a ''very'' subtle moment of {{foreshadowing}}: Jules' very first scene in the movie has him enthusiastically saying that he wants to go to Europe, after hearing Vincent's many stories about his travels there. The very ''last'' scene in the movie has him planning to [[WalkingTheEarth walk the Earth]] after quitting his life of crime. With his past behind him, now he has a reason to make good on his promise and go to Europe.

** He might not know for sure, but since they encountered each other as Butch was driving ''away'' from his apartment (and the only reason Butch would be in that neighbourhood in the first place would be his apartment), since Butch would almost certainly encounter Vincent at his apartment and since the only reason Butch would be leaving his apartment alive would be if Vincent wasn't alive to stop him, Marcellus can take a reasonable guess that Vincent is probably dead. In any case, that aside Butch still did Marcellus a solid one even though he had no reason to, so Marcellus will likely swallow the loss and uphold his end of the bargain.
