As usual I’m posting my rough rewatch notes below:

Tim Roth, Amanda Plummer in restaurant.

Casual talk to throw you off.

Taran is really big on the right music

Next scene travolta (Vincent) and Sam Jackson are arguing logic of whats more serious, cuningulus or a foot massage. This mindless, unrelated dialog is meant to throw the iewer off

Jacksons character recites a Bible passage about wrath before he execites people

23 mins into it you have a 3rd scenario. Bruce Willisvand Ving Raimes. Accepting a payoff to throw his fight.

Rosanna Arquette and Eric Stoltz, the heroine dealers

Marcellas wife Mia) Uma Thurman needs a chaperone to take her out. Vincent is chosen for the job.

Their famous dance

Mis finds heroin and snorts it, over doses. Vincent takes her to Stolz and Arquette and they inject adrenaline into her heart.

Willis kills the other boxer in the ring. Bets on homself and leaves town.

Marcella finds Willis character in a pawn shop.

They fall into a dark spiral of gimp hell

Driving around Vincent shoots Marvin in the face

Harvey Keitel is the fixer

Story comes full circle when Vincent and Jules are in the diner as the holdup resumes
