** Agreed with the second answer. It's just a funny way to show that Beatrix Kiddo is indeed The Bride's true name, by showing her in an elementary school class full of "kiddos" and participating in roll call.

* Why didn't anybody bother warning Vernita Green that Beatrix was awake and hunting down the DVAS? Even if after leaving Sophie at the hospital she immediately took a direct flight to California and then drove straight to Vernita's house, that's an 11 hour flight, enough time for Bill to make a call.

*** "Ungrateful"? He didn't get a scholarship, he was a ''trained killer''. Maybe he had a good long think after

** Except that Bill clearly says "Elle, you're gonna have to abort the mission.", implying that he was the one who sent her there to begin with.
** Probably Bill wasn't sure if the Bride was really in a coma or not until Elle was actually standing over her and she didn't react. If she's shown any sign whatsoever that she was starting to recover, Elle would've killed her then and there.

*** Plus, Beatrix Kiddo sounds...really stupid.



* A blogger on Website/YouTube suggested to me once that Pai Mei should have been around to punish Gogo for her insolence. WHY DID A FIGHT BETWEEN PAI MEI AND GOGO NOT HAPPEN?!
** Because they were in two entirely unrelated parts of the film and had absolutely nothing to do with each other, maybe?
** Johnny Mo is played by the same actor, but he's on Gogo's side.
** [[spoiler: Because Pai Mei was dead before the events of Kill Bill Vol. 1. Plus, he never met Gogo or O-Ren as far as we know, so he wouldn't have been there anyway.]]
* If Elle killed Budd, because she felt that the Bride deserved a better death than being buried alive, then why was her condition for meeting with Budd "She must suffer to her last breath"?

*** She could have just had Nikki before the attack on the Bridge-- I mean, the kid is probably Bill's, anyway.

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

* Why of all the possible ways to kill Budd did ellie use a Black Mamba? Bill as far as we have seen, is not a moron, he knows that Kiddo would stick Budd with her sword, or some other "face your' enemy" type attack, Ellie should know this, and if it wasn't for Kiddo busting in, she would of went back to Bill and he would of promptly killed her in the most torturous way possible, she had Kiddos' sword, she could of easily killed him with that brought it back saying kiddo had killed Budd and said Kiddo did it, or something else, like she had just got the sword off of Budd and Kiddo must of gotten out of the grave and killed Budd with his own sword (which would be found in the trailer)

* Not sure where the put this one, but there's one thing about the Blue Leaves showdown: before The Bride fights Gogo, she kills six or so members of Crazy 88, yet her katana stays completely pristine and stainless, there's not a single drop of blood on the blade. Guess this one can be chalked up as a goof.

** More importantly, if she was so eager to kill The Bride herself, why did she let Budd do it (or well, try to off her)? Elle could've just tell Budd to keep her alive until she could get there to finish the job.

** Vernita seems to have retired from killing. Bill might not be able to get ahold of her right away, or she might be trusting in her cover as a soccer mom to protect her. After all, Vernita isn't living the high life of a crime boss the way O-Ren was.

*** This is the most likely explanation. Elle may had a begrudging respect (as a warrior) towards Beatrix, and her contempt towards Budd's method of execution may be genuine, but she already had the Black Mamba in the suitcase before Budd told her about the "Texas Funeral".
