Aaron, You totally mis-read what I wrote. I didn’t mean that I thought it wasn’t written by QT, I meant it was not what we are so used to hearing from him. There was no wit and cleverness in the dialogue. There were hardly any quotable lines. Hardly anything that was said amused me in the slightest except what Pai Mei said, Budd’s Boss said and a few other things other characters said. The dialogue was definately not the same callibre as in his other films. Compare the following and they are by no means bias:
Bill: Pai Mei taught you the five point palm-exploding heart technique?
The Bride : Of course he did.
Bill: Why didn’t you tell me?
The Bride : I don’t know… because I’m a bad person.
Bill: No. You’re not a bad person. You’re a terrific person. You’re my favorite person, but every once in a while, you can be a real cunt.
Budd: She’s got a Hanzo sword?
Bill: He made one for her.
Budd: Didn’t he swear a blood oath to never make another sword?
Bill: Superman stands alone. Superman did not become Superman, Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he is Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red S is the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes. What Kent wears, the glasses the business suit, that’s the costume. That’s the costume Superman wears to blend in with us. Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent? He’s weak, unsure of himself… he’s a coward. Clark Kent is Superman’s critique on the whole human race, sort of like Beatrix Kiddo and Mrs. Tommy Plumpton.
Jimmie : I can’t believe this is the same car.
The Wolf : Well, let’s not start sucking each other’s dicks just yet.
Jules: Describe what Marcellus Wallace looks like!
Brett: What, I-?
Jules: [pointing his gun] Say “what” again. SAY “WHAT” AGAIN. I dare you, I double dare you, motherfucker. Say “what” one more goddamn time.
Mia: 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: That’s when you know you’ve found somebody special. When you can just shut the fuck up for a minute and comfortably enjoy the silence.
Captain Koons: The way your dad looked at it, this watch was your birthright. He’d be damned if any of the slopes were gonna get their greasy yellow hands on his boy’s birthright. So he hid it in the one place he knew he could hide something: his ass. Five long years, he wore this watch up his ass. Then when he died of dysentery, he gave me the watch. I hid this uncomfortable piece of metal up my ass for two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, little man, I give the watch to you.
The Vol 2 dialogue doesn’t have that same ‘sas’ to it, it is pretty regular and borring, nothing like what you would expect from QT.
