** The final scene was going to include an ImagineSpot where Jules kills Pumpkin and Honey Bunny, to show what the old Jules would have done. Tarantino decided it was already clear enough and didn't even shoot it.

* UrbanLegendOfZelda: There's been this popular conception that had been awhile since the film premiered that all clocks in the film are stuck at 4:20. While the events of the film had an ExtremelyShortTimespan, there's only one scene that ran around 4:20, the pawnshop.

* YouLookFamiliar: According to WordOfGod, this is set in the same universe as ''Film/ReservoirDogs''. Several actors (Creator/HarveyKeitel, Creator/TimRoth, Tarantino himself) return as different characters.

If Michael Madsen had returned as Vincent Vega (see above), presumably this would have made Vincent and Vic (Mr. Blonde from ''Film/ReservoirDogs'') twins.

** Vincent Vega: Creator/DanielDayLewis actively campaigned for the part, but Tarantino turned him down. He initially wanted Creator/MichaelMadsen to play the goofy hitman, but the latter chose to pursue another project instead (a decision he later regretted). Creator/AlecBaldwin, Andy Garcia, Creator/MichaelKeaton, Creator/GaryOldman, Jason Patric, Creator/SeanPenn and Creator/TimRoth were also considered.

Added DiffLines:

* 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"
