** Let's be honest, Vince is hardly a top enforcer. He's dead weight through most of the movie, causes problems with everyone he meets, and only gets out of scrapes because of Jules, the Wolf, or divine intervention. At this point, he's the druggie moron who couldn't find the guy with the revolver, shot Marvin in the head, and didn't know how to shut up when being directed by the Wolf. Hardly a loss for Marcellus Wallace.

* Near the beginning of Butch's story after he kills the other boxer, he goes to a pay phone and tells the person collecting his money from the bookies that him and his girlfriend will take a couple days to get to Knoxville and that the next time he talks to him they'll "be on Tennessee time". At the end of his story they have the incident in the pawn shop where he kills Zed and the other employee/owner. During that scene you can clearly see mounted on the wall behind the pawn shop guy a confederate flag and a Tennessee license plate... This is incredibly interesting to me. There's a very real possibility Butch sticks to his original plan after the movie ends and takes his girlfriend to Knoxville on Zed's custom personalized chopper. Now if these pawn shop guys were a part of a motorcycle chapter as well as some fringe part of organized crime and are *from* Tennessee they likely still have plenty of connections there and make regular trips between LA and Knoxville to meet up with their leadership. So heres where it gets interesting. When Butch arrives in Tennessee on this stolen chopper not only is it possible certain gamblers there have gotten word of that particular fight maybe being rigged, but they would certainly learn in a few days that their members in LA were recently murdered at their business front and his bike was stolen. When they see Butch riding around on Zed's bike, he's going to be in serious trouble. I could actually see this being a fantastic setup for a sequel if they made one. Butch could arrive in Tennessee ecstatic that he finally got away from the chaos in LA, able to settle down and start his life over without needing to run. Perhaps he decided to stop in at a random biker bar near his hotel/safehouse to celebrate and is having a good time with a bit of cash from the setup so he starts buying everyone drinks and everyone is getting to know him, he's putting himself at the center of attention. At some point maybe someone walks into the bar and starts asking "where's Zed?" "what do you mean, I never heard anything about him coming out?" "Well his chopper is parked right outside... yeah see, that's his isn't it?" "Huh yeah that's his alright" at some point maybe the bartender tries to call their LA office and can't get through, eventually they make contact with someone to find out he was killed. Butch's tipsy mind is racing as he gradually realizes what's going on and prepares to bail, oblivious to how much information he gave out about himself while chatting.
** Though this does depend slightly on Butch happening to stumble upon people who both lost money over his rigged fight ''and'' were friends of his would-be rapists in a state of over five million people.

* In the TV pilot ''Fox Force 5'', Mia's specialty was "knives" - in ''Film/KillBill'', Creator/UmaThurman's character uses Samurai swords (Copperhead specializing in knives as well) Latter film also features the Deadly Viper Squad, badass women with aliases that possess specialties.

* Steve Buscemi plays a waiter. In the [[Film/ReservoirDogs previous Tarantino film]], Buscemi's character had explained why he doesn't like to tip, essentially making this LaserGuidedKarma.

* The prologue features a rather famous moment in which Jules intimidates Brett by [[EnemyEatsYourLunch snatching his hamburger and eating it in front of him]] before remorselessly murdering him. It's easy to miss, but that scene is practically a mirror image of another scene in "Vincent Vega and Marsellus Wallace's Wife": Mia orders a hamburger at Jackrabbit Slim's, and Vincent (Jules' {{foil}}) respectfully keeps his distance while she eats it--subtly showing that the soft-spoken, feminine Mia has far more power than the ambitious, masculine Brett. Jules' dialogue even subtly highlights the connection, as he chews Brett out for "fucking" Marsellus, and points out that only "Mrs. Wallace" is allowed to do that.
* The three main stories in the film all involve the three main characters, in turn, killing (or ''almost'' killing) three people who literally or figuratively "fucked" Marsellus Wallace. Brett betrays Marsellus, and gets murdered by Jules in retaliation. Mia is Marsellus' lover, and Vincent very nearly kills her by leaving heroin for her to overdose on. And Zed, the BigBad of "The Gold Watch", ''rapes'' Marsellus, and ends up being cornered with a samurai sword by Butch, then led away to be tortured to death by Marsellus' men.

* When the Music/BuddyHolly impersonator takes Vincent and Mia's orders in Jack Rabbit Slim's, note that all of his questions to them are phrased as binary choices with just two options. He doesn't ask Vincent "How would you like your steak cooked?", he simply gives him a choice between "burned to a crisp" or "bloody as hell". And he doesn't ask Mia what flavor of milkshake she would like, he just gives her a choice between "Martin and Lewis" (vanilla) or "Amos n' Andy" (chocolate). This subtly foreshadows the end of the movie, when Vincent and Jules' fates are sealed by a similar binary choice: Jules chooses to see their survival as a divine miracle, and decides to go straight; Vincent chooses to see it as a meaningless coincidence, and continues his life of crime [[spoiler: until he's killed by Butch]].
