#1

Hello,

Fox Force Five is the name of a pilot Episode which Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) starred in, in Pulp Fiction. Fox Force Five is a group of five secret agents, each of them female and each have a ‘speciality’. Mia Wallace’s character’s speciality was her skills with a knife. a joke would be told in each episode, but seen as the pilot wasn’t a success only one joke got to be told. Here is a quote from Pulp:



“Fox Force Five.” Fox, as in we’re a bunch of foxy chicks. Force, as in we’re a force to be reckoned with. Five, as in there’s one…two …three…four…five of us. There was a blonde one, Sommerset O’Neal from that show “Baton Rouge, she was the leader. A Japanese one, a black one, a French one and a brunette one, me. We all had special skills. Sommerset had a photographic memory, the Japanese fox was a kung fu master, the black girl was a demolition expert, the French fox’ specialty was sex…

Vincent: What was your specialty?

Mia: Knives. The character I played,Raven McCoy, her background was she was raised by circus performers. So she grew up doing a knife act. According to the show, she was the deadliest woman in the world with a knife. But because she grew up in a circus, she was also something of an acrobat. She could do illusions, she was a trapeze artist – when you’re keeping the world safe from evil, you never know when being a trapeze artist’s gonna come in handy. And she knew a zillion old jokes her grandfather, an old vaudevillian, taught her. If we would have gotten picked up, they would have worked in a gimmick where every episode I would have told a joke.”

Ify? The japanese - Kung Fu shit is the right quotation form the script. You can check it out:
MIA
It was show about a team of female
secret agents called "Fox Force
Five."

VINCENT
What?

MIA
"Fox Force Five." Fox, as in we're
a bunch of foxy chicks. Force, as
in we're a force to be reckoned
with. Five, as in there's one..two
..three..four..five of us. There
was a blonde one, Sommerset O'Neal
from that show "Baton Rouge," she
was the leader. A Japanese one, a
black one, a French one and a
brunette one, me. We all had
special skills. Sommerset had a
photographic memory, [u]the Japanese
fox was a kung fu master[/u], the black
girl was a demolition expert, the
French fox' specialty was sex...

VINCENT
What was your specialty?

MIA
Knives. ............

It could be connected to O-Ren being head of the yakuza even though she wasn’t purely Japanese.


#16

there’s actually a movie called FOX FORCE about chicks who do shit, not quite the same as Mia’s descrip, but its obvious Tarantino stole from this movie.
