* 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.

** It's a shout-out to Clint Eastwood's "Man With No Name".

*** 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".

* Why didn't anybody bother warning Vernita Green that Beatrix was awaken and hunting down the DVAS? Even if after leaving Sofie 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.

** From ThatOtherWiki: "There are only 40 actors accredited to the Crazy 88, however a frame-by-frame count performed by Jonathan R. from Bouncing Ferret Films shows 82: 67 killed, 12 maimed, 1 killed by an axe thrown by somebody else, one possibly killed, one spanked." I guess we should assume that there are only forty in-universe and the rest are stunt people or extras.

** Elle was being a jerk to damage Kiddo's reputation (even in death) in Bill's eyes, by making it looked like Kiddo used an unfair method to bump off Budd.
