Mia & Vincent


#1

Obviouly there was some kinda heat between Mia Vincent.

HINTS



*He blows her a kiss good nite

*The way they look at each other after the dinner.

*At the end of the boxing match “oh…I never thanked you for dinner”



OH SHIT! SHE IS MARRIED!!

Of course, there was heat no doubt, but after the drug overdose, everything went ice cold that was the whole point. Sure Vincent wanted to fuck Mia, hell everybody who heard VV was taking Mia out knew that VV would want to do that, that’s why they kept laughing at him and poking fun, and asking had he ever seen her, and after they had their “comfortable silence” the audience knew what was going to happen, but of course, the genius QT, threw in the drug overdose, and when Mia survived, it was a defining moment, and redemption at its best. I saw that you are just fourteen, so wacth the movie…ah…another 63 times and you’ll catch stuff each time. Good luck Kid.

Bah! You can tell they liked each other from the minute they sat down in the restaurant - Vincent was just afraid of getting thrown from a balcony. And besides, that a whole “Is that what you call a comfortable silence?” answers the question if it hadn’t already been answered.

For the record, it was UNcomfortable silence guys. Sorry for being such a pain in the ass, but I’m sort of a perfectionist.  :wink:

For the record, what Mia and Vincent shared in the house of the Wallace’s was in fact a comfortable silence. They both acted like they didn’t feel it, but they did, and just because they quoted “uncomfortable silence” and the definition, which was " that’s when you know that you’ve found someone special, when you can just shup the fuck up, and enjoy silence." So what this all means is that they experienced the opposite of " uncomfortable silence" in the house and that would make my above statement right and yours WRONG!

Nice One

Dont say sorry to these people you are entitled to discuss this subject if you want, and just because some of QT fans think they have the right to belittle new QT fans, dont see this as a reason not to post about an aspect of the film you enjoyed

Not neccessarily true. He did say “guys”, meaning he was referring to both of your posts, but Puck incorrectly quoted the line when he should have said “uncomfortable” instead of “comfortable.” So basically, Scar’s half right.

He liked her. He was just afraid and nervous. But that can be seen only because two GREAT actors are playing.

Uma and Travolta…

Perfect.

yes! they had an uncomfortable silence in Jack rabbit slims and they talked about it there..." that's when you know that you've found someone special, when you can just shup the fuck up, and enjoy silence." And in the house it wasnt an uncomfortable silence just tension between the two...they look eachother in the eyes and both want eachother, but kinda fear the consequences...in the house they got comfortable enough that the silence and (sexual) tension didnt matter...so they both found someone special....but it could never happen because it would mean they would get killed....

I dont think that they just liked each other. They pretty much fell in love in those two scenes. IMO, the back to back scenes of the twist contest and Mia dancing at the house, are the best scenes in the film. Just go back and really really watch it. “You’ll Be a Woman Soon” went perfect with the scene at the house. QT is at the top of his game when it comes to selecting the right music to make a scene perfect. There are only two scenes in the history of cinema which i feel are perfect. First being the final scene in Donnie Darko, the second these back to back scenes.


#13

There was definetly something preety significant going on there, especially with Jacket Rabbit slims and the deleted ‘interegation’ scene, but at end of the day I dont think anything would have happpened between them, Vincent is to much of a proffesional and Mia would never have left MW, she strikes we as more of a realist than a romantascist.

The “Mad World” montage or the very final scene the next morning after the accident?


#15

is it so hard to understand?



Vincent and Mia experienced something the random dicitonary calls 'love at first sight’



impossible love at first sight because they would both be brutally tortured and killed if they ever truly expressed their love

they are in love but they know its impossible



done


#16

absolutley. I love the way they looked at eachother after dancing into the house late at night. :-*

I think he means Mad World, that was great and very emotional.

okay, heres something thats bothering me, why did MW ask Vincent to look after Mia while he was away, I mean would’nt it make more sense to have asked someone who was’nt single but in a serious relationship to look after your gorgeous young wife (i.e. Jules, supposing his speach about his vegetarian girlfriend was true)?

Hm…perhaps. But when Vincent was in the bathroom, he was talking about it being a test of his loyalty, and maybe that’s exactly what it was. He was away in Amsterdam, who knows what kind of shit went on over there…Marcellus could have been making sure his loyalty was still in the right spot. (not to mentiona Mia’s…)

Good theory! 8)
