* BeamMeUpScotty:
** [[Creator/SamuelLJackson Jules Winnfield's]] famous hamburger speech from ''Film/PulpFiction'' is often misquoted (by putting words or phrases in the wrong order) or quoted correctly but used in the wrong context:
-->'''Jules:''' "What country you from?!"
-->'''Brett:''' W-what?
-->'''Jules:''' 'What' ain't no country ''I'' ever heard of! They speak English in 'what'?
-->'''Brett:''' ...what?
-->'''Jules:''' ENGLISH, MOTHERFUCKER, DO YOU SPEAK IT?!
** The last line is often misquoted as "English, do you speak it, motherfucker?" Regarding context, Jules is sarcastically demanding that Brett give him a clearer answer than "what," but the line is often used in real life against people who are literally not speaking English well or at all.
*** The HilariousOuttakes from ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' has Clark Gregg hilariously misquoting it as "I said what, motherfucker", just because Creator/SamuelLJackson was in the movie.
*** That, and there's a line by Samuel L. Jackson in that scene in ''Pulp Fiction'' he's making fun of: "SAY WHAT AGAIN, I DARE YA, I DOUBLE DARE YOU!" Well, he said it.
** Jules has his own Beam Me Up Scotty with the Bible. The entire verse of Ezekiel 25:17 goes, from start to finish, "And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them."
*** While this is indeed an example of this trope, it's not because the passage doesn't match up to the Bible, but because it doesn't match up to the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LYT4JC2dd4 introduction to Sonny Chiba's ]]''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LYT4JC2dd4 The Bodyguard]]'', from which this passage (as well as its attribution as Ezekiel 25:17) is lifted almost exactly. The use in ''The Bodyguard'' would be a misquote of the Bible, translations and mistranslations aside.
** In an example that's made its way into a trope name, IJustShotMarvinInTheFace is actually "Aw man... I shot Marvin in the face..." with no "just"

* HilariousInHindsight: Jules comparing himself to Caine from Series/KungFu when discussing his idea of WalkingTheEarth. [[Film/KillBill Guess who would star in a Tarantino film nearly a decade later?]]

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: When Mia orders her milkshake, Vince makes a big deal about it costing five dollars, a price that's pretty reasonable twenty years later.

** Lance/Jody: According to Music/CourtneyLove, she and [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Kurt Cobain]] were specifically offered the role. Apparently (and unfortunately), Cobain turned it down. Depending on what article you read, Tarantino denies this. Creator/PamGrier auditioned for Jody. Though she had a great audition, Tarantino decided not to cast her because he could not imagine Grier getting pushed around the way the character does. Ellen DeGeneres read for Jody. Creator/NicolasCage, Creator/JohnCusack, Creator/JohnnyDepp, Creator/SamuelLJackson, Creator/MichaelKeaton, Creator/GaryOldman, and Creator/BillPaxton were also considered for Lance, while Patricia Arquette, Angel Aviles, Jennifer Beals, Creator/SofiaCoppola, Tyra Ferrell, Bridget Fonda, Jasmine Guy, Lathy Griffin, Creator/JenniferJasonLeigh, Lili Taylor and N'Bushe Wright were also considered for Jody.
