Pulp Fiction script
Pulp Fiction (1994)
Synopsis: Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) are hitmen with a penchant for philosophical discussions. In this ultra-hip, multi-strand crime movie, their storyline is interwoven with those of their boss, gangster Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames) ; his actress wife, Mia (Uma Thurman) ; struggling boxer Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis) ; master fixer Winston Wolfe (Harvey Keitel) and a nervous pair of armed robbers, "Pumpkin" (Tim Roth) and "Honey Bunny" (Amanda Plummer).

YOUNG WOMAN:

Oh yes, thank you.

The Waitress pours the Young Woman's coffee. The Young Man

lights up another cigarette.

YOUNG MAN:

I'm doin' fine.

The Waitress leaves. The Young Man takes a drag off of his

smoke.

The Young Woman pours a ton of cream and sugar into her

coffee.

The Young Man goes right back into it.

YOUNG MAN:

I mean the way it is now, you're

takin' the same fuckin' risk as when

you rob a bank. You take more of a

risk. Banks are easier! Federal

banks aren't supposed to stop you

anyway, during a robbery. They're

insured, why should they care? You

don't even need a gun in a federal

bank. I heard about this guy, walked

into a federal bank with a portable

phone, handed the phone to the teller,

the guy on the other end of the phone

said:
"We got this guy's little girl,

and if you don't give him all your

money, we're gonna kill 'er."

YOUNG WOMAN:

Did it work?

YOUNG MAN:

Fuckin' A it worked, that's what I'm

talkin' about! Knucklehead walks in

a bank with a telephone, not a pistol,

not a shotgun, but a fuckin' phone,

cleans the place out, and they don't

lift a fuckin' finger.
