Marsellus' cups


#1

Hello all. I’m a new recruit to this awesome board and this is my first post. I was wondering if anybody else noticed the colors of Marsellus’ cups on his table when Jules called him during The Bonnie Situation. Their colors are pink, white, orange, and brown; the colors of the actors who were in both Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs. Buscemi (pink/buddy holly), Keitel (white/winston wolf), Roth (orange/pumpkin), and Tarantino (brown/jimmie). This might just be me noticing obscure factoids, but I thought it was neat, Anyone else notice?

welcome to the board!



that’s a first, I think I should finally buy the Special Edition DVD and watch the movie ONCE AGAIN :wink:


#3

nice eye dude…that Tarantino…always scheming something ;D


#4

Nice observation Drexl! I didn’t noticed it! QT pays homage to himself 8)!


#5

Holy clue, Batman, that’s some mind-blowing shit. I wonder what kind of clues QT will put in Kill Bill? :smiley:


#6

i just watched pulp fiction again and all the cups on marcellus’s table are clear. i don’t know what you’re talking about. maybe you’re talking about a different part.


#7

thats a good observation! also when jules and vincent are drinking some of jimmie’s fine gourmet coffe the color of mugs are blue and yellow(blonde’s color)

 The cups ARE clear, but they are each filled with liquid.  The "white" cup is probably milk, the "orange" cup is probably orange juice, and the "brown" cup looks like Pepsi or something.  They are definitely white, orange, and brown.  Take another look at the LIQUIDS.  You'll see what Drexl's talkin' about...<br/>

Interesting. I’ll have to check that out. Coincidence or design? I guess that’s one for the Ask Tarantino thread.

wow, drexl. you totally blew my mind there.

you are without a doubt the coolest person in the entire world. anybody with an eye for fine cinema like that deserves to be making fine cinema himself…which begs the question…who is this mystery man who parades among us calling himself “drexl?” and how does he know so much about the minutia of tarantino movies? is this a coincidence? no, my brothers, it is not. i contest, on the graves of my own family, that the man who calls himself “drexl” is, in fact, quentin tarantino himself, posing as an innocent message-board-user to blow the minds of those who participate in his info site. what other explaination could it be?

come clean, drexl, or should i call you mr.quentin tarantino. stop the charade while some of your honor is still intact. lord knows you have little enough left after from dusk till dawn.



dig.

On the t.v. at my friend’s house the liquid looked purple, yellow, and white, but on mine i can tell. thanks.

Just like to add that Roth is Pumpkin and Mr. Orange. The cup, by the way they are actually FILLED with the colored liquid, might be fillid with Pumpkin (orange) juice, aka Pumpkin and Mr. Orange.

It looks more like Marmalade to me. I just watched the flick last night. The White looks like sugar, the brown looks like cofee beans and the Pink is some sort of cocktail Mia is having.

NICE VERY NICE!



GOOD EYES!

This reply is to the above dumbass that goes by EATSDABUTT.

You are a dumb motherfucker. I catch something new everytime I watch PF. Drexel just has a great eye for coincidences in movies. I am sure though that it was far from coinidence. QT did set that up, but if he did he would never enter his own forum and tell us about it. He wanted us to figure it out for ourselves. Oh, and by the way, your quote on the bottom of your screen. The big black guy in True Romance aint the guy from Snatch, its Paul Bates from Coming to America you fuckin’ dipshit.


#16

Good job drexl!

does anybody have a screenshot cuz I have to wait till July first to see the movie again

so a link for a clean screenshot would be real nice guys!


#17

Very good observation!!!



I had heard he put a lot of Reservoir Dogs refs in Pulp, but this is a first. There a more refs in the book Tarantino A to Zed, but this is a good one. Thanx Drexl.


#18

yeah I checked

3 cups on the table:brown, orange and white

Mia’s holding one:pink



that’s so fuckin’ awesome!
