** There's no indication how much time passes. Her hair is long and blonde "four years and six months" ago when she's shot, then she's in the hospital where presumably it grows a bit. The timeline jumps around a bit. We only know that her visit to Esteban is after the Pussy Wagon dies and (presumably) after she kills the first four people on her list. It appears that enough time has passed, maybe a couple of months, between her visit to Esteban and her visit to Bill for the bob to grow out a bit, but it's not as long as it is in the earlier scenes, nor as short as it is when she visits Esteban. She gets the hell beat out of her in each fight, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that she takes some time to heal in between and get ready for the next one.

* Something that's been bugging me for a while: did Black Mamba tell Tommy she was pregnant by another man's kid or she just lied that the kid was his?

** You'll have to lose your imagination on that one. It would depend on how long they knew each other before getting married. Since she was already pregnant when they met, it would have to be a very fast courtship, and she'd have to lie when the baby was born [[ThreeMonthOldNewborn "premature."]]



** Also, there's a theory that all of Tarantino's films are all under one shared universe that is branched off somewhere from out own (much like how the ''Star Trek'' TV series has a regular universe and a Mirror Universe), that somewhere in our past, the reality of Tarantino's universe branched off from ours, and that what sets it apart is that its more violent than our reality (which would explain how in ''Inglourious Basterds'' Adolf Hilter dies in a movie theater at the hands of two U.S. soldiers and a Jewish woman seeking revenge instead of committing suicide in a bunker after he realized that he was about to go down). So, since this universe is populated with violent people throughout its history, it would make since that a Japanese air flight service would allow for the carrying on of samurai swords (and even include sword holders on their seats for those carrying them).

** It's implied that the Yakuza do a lot of "deals" out of the place, which might include prostitution and drugs. It could be a money-laundering front, as well.

** Elle herself felt that Buck gave Beatrix an unworthy death, so she was invoking KarmicDeath upon him, as Beatrix's old codename was, you guessed it, Black Mamba.

** Reading the script (which offers a deeper relationship between The Bride and Bill), she does it to give Bill a decent and honorable death. He was completely ready to die (as he says to the Bride: "You will defeat. And I want you to defeat me. But I just cant' give it to you that easily), and he chose to stand up (in the movie, in the script he dies standing on a beach) and die.
