JULES WINNFIELD
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa... stop right there. Eatin' a bitch out, and givin' a bitch a foot massage ain't even the same fuckin' thing.
VINCENT
It's not. It's the same ballpark.
JULES WINNFIELD
Ain't no fuckin' ballpark neither. Now look, maybe your method of massage differs from mine, but, you know, touchin' his wife's feet, and stickin' your tongue in her Holiest of Holies, ain't the same fuckin' ballpark, it ain't the same league, it ain't even the same fuckin' sport. Look, foot massages don't mean shit.
VINCENT
Have you ever given a foot massage?
JULES WINNFIELD
[scoffs] Don't be tellin' me about foot massages. I'm the foot fuckin' master.
VINCENT
Given a lot of 'em?
JULES WINNFIELD
Shit yeah. I got my technique down and everything, I don't be ticklin' or nothin'.
VINCENT
Would you give a guy a foot massage? [Jules gives Vincent a long look, realizing he's been set up]
JULES WINNFIELD
Fuck you.
VINCENT
You give them a lot?
VINCENT
You know, I'm getting kinda tired. I could use a foot massage myself.
JULES WINNFIELD
Man, you best back off, I'm gittin' a little pissed here.

JULES WINNFIELD
Okay, so, tell me about the hash bars.
VINCENT
So what you want to know?
JULES WINNFIELD
Well, hash is legal there, right?
VINCENT
Yeah, it's legal, but it ain't a hundred percent legal. I mean, you can't walk into a restaurant, roll a joint, and start puffin' away. They want you to smoke in your home or certain designated places.
JULES WINNFIELD
Those are hash bars?
VINCENT
Breaks down like this, okay: it's legal to buy it, it's legal to own it, and if you're the proprietor of a hash bar, it's legal to sell it. It's illegal to carry it, but that doesn't really matter 'cause, get a load of this, all right; if you get stopped by the cops in Amsterdam, it's illegal for them to search you. I mean, that's a right the cops in Amsterdam don't have.
JULES WINNFIELD
[laughing] Oh, man. I'm going, that's all there is to it. I'm fucking going.
VINCENT
Yeah, baby, you'd dig it the most. But you know what the funniest thing about Europe is?
JULES WINNFIELD
What?
VINCENT
It's the little differences. I mean, they got the same shit over there that we got here, but it's just...it's just, there it's a little different.
JULES WINNFIELD
Example?
VINCENT
All right. Well, you can walk into a movie theater in Amsterdam and buy a beer. And I don't mean just like in no paper cup; I'm talking about a glass of beer. And in Paris, you can buy a beer at McDonald's. And you know what they call a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in Paris?
JULES WINNFIELD
They don't call it a Quarter Pounder with Cheese?
VINCENT
Nah, man, they got the metric system. They wouldn't know what the fuck a Quarter Pounder is.
JULES WINNFIELD
What do they call it?
VINCENT
They call it a "Royale with Cheese."
JULES WINNFIELD
"Royale with Cheese."
VINCENT
That's right.
JULES WINNFIELD
What do they call a Big Mac?
VINCENT
A Big Mac's a Big Mac, but they call it "Le Big Mac."
JULES WINNFIELD
[in mock French accent] "Le Big Mac." [laughs] What do they call a Whopper?
VINCENT
I don't know, I didn't go in a Burger King.

THE WOLF
Jimmie, lead the way. Boys, get to work.
VINCENT
A please would be nice.
THE WOLF
Come again?
VINCENT
I said a please would be nice.
THE WOLF
Get it straight buster - I'm not here to say please, I'm here to tell you what to do and if self-preservation is an instinct you possess you'd better fucking do it and do it quick. I'm here to help - if my help's not appreciated then lotsa luck, gentlemen.
JULES WINNFIELD
No, Mr. Wolf, it ain't like that, your help is definitely appreciated.
VINCENT
I don't mean any disrespect, I just don't like people barking orders at me.
THE WOLF
If I'm curt with you it's because time is a factor. I think fast, I talk fast and I need you guys to act fast if you wanna get out of this. So, pretty please... with sugar on top. Clean the fucking car.

MIA WALLACE
Vincent, do you still want to hear my Fox Force Five joke?
VINCENT
Sure, but I think I'm still a little too petrified to laugh.
MIA WALLACE
No, you wont laugh, 'cus it's not funny. But if you still wanna hear it, I'll tell it.
VINCENT
I can't wait.
MIA WALLACE
Three tomatoes are walking down the street- a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato. Baby tomato starts lagging behind. Poppa tomato gets angry, goes over to the baby tomato, and smooshes him... and says, Catch up.

VINCENT
I'll have the Douglas Sirk steak, and a vanilla Coke.
BUDDY HOLLY
How would you like that? Burnt to a crisp or bloody as hell?
VINCENT
Bloody as hell.

JULES WINNFIELD
Look, just because I don't be givin' no man a foot massage don't make it right for Marsellus to throw Antwone into a glass motherfuckin' house, fuckin' up the way the nigger talks. Motherfucker do that shit to me, he better paralyze my ass, 'cause I'll kill the motherfucker, know what I'm sayin'?
VINCENT
I ain't saying it's right. But you're saying a foot massage don't mean nothing, and I'm saying it does. Now look, I've given a million ladies a million foot massages, and they all meant something. We act like they don't, but they do, and that's what's so fucking cool about them. There's a sensuous thing going on where you don't talk about it, but you know it, she knows it, fucking Marsellus knew it, and Antwone should have fucking better known better. I mean, that's his fucking wife, man. He can't be expected to have a sense of humor about that shit. You know what I'm saying?
JULES WINNFIELD
That's an interesting point. Come on, let's get into character.

VINCENT
And you know what they call a... a... a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in Paris?
JULES WINNFIELD
They don't call it a Quarter Pounder with cheese?
VINCENT
No man, they got the metric system. They wouldn't know what the fuck a Quarter Pounder is.
JULES WINNFIELD
Then what do they call it?
VINCENT
They call it a Royale with cheese.
JULES WINNFIELD
A Royale with cheese. What do they call a Big Mac?
VINCENT
Well, a Big Mac's a Big Mac, but they call it le Big-Mac.
JULES WINNFIELD
Le Big-Mac. Ha ha ha ha. What do they call a Whopper?
VINCENT
I dunno, I didn't go into Burger King.

JULES WINNFIELD
Yo, yo, yo, man, you best back off. I'm getting pissed here. This is the door.
VINCENT
There it is.
JULES WINNFIELD
What time you got?
VINCENT
[looks at his watch] 7:22 in the a.m.
JULES WINNFIELD
No, it's not time yet. Let's hang back. [they go into an empty hallway] Look, just 'cause I wouldn't give no man a foot massage don't make it right for Marsellus to throw Antoine into a glass motherfucking house fucking up the way the nigga talks. That shit ain't right. Motherfucker do that shit to me, he better paralyze my ass because I'd kill the motherfucker, know what I'm saying?
VINCENT
I ain't saying it's right. But you're saying a foot massage don't mean nothing, and I'm saying it does. Now, look, I've given a million ladies a million foot massages, and they all meant something.

JULES WINNFIELD
That's an interesting point. [pause] C'mon, let's get into character.

MIA WALLACE
Don't you just love it when you come back from the bathroom and find your food waiting for you?
VINCENT
We're lucky we got anything at all. I don't think Buddy Holly's much of a waiter.

MIA WALLACE
Don't you hate that?
VINCENT
Hate what?
MIA WALLACE
Uncomfortable silences. Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullshit in order to be comfortable?
VINCENT
I don't know. That's a good question.
MIA WALLACE
That's when you know you've found somebody really special: you can just shut the fuck up for a minute and comfortably share silence.
