Watching Reservoir Dogs again, I noticed a mistake that I never came across before.
When they’re in the car, Nice Guy Eddie behind the wheel, White in the shotgun, Orange and Pink in the back, they’re talking about how black girls are different from white girls.
Well anyway, Pink makes a point and then Nice Guy Eddie says something like “I have to give it Pink.” Something like that. Either which way, he calls him Mr. Pink.
Well they are driving to go meet with Joe Cabot and the rest of the guys where they all find out their names, so technically, Pink doesn’t have that name yet.
Now, like a good fan, I tried justifying it in my head. Maybe Eddie already knew what name his dad would give Pink but then, in the warehouse, Pink objects to his name as if its the first time he’s ever hearing it. Pink would’ve freaked out in the car if he heard Nice Guy call him Pink.
So then I said to myself, alright, Maybe that scene where Joe assigns the names occured before that scene where they’re driving but, no, that would totally be changing the structure of the movie that we’re all use to.
Beside, although the film is told in chapters, those two scenes are in chronological order.
Has anyone ever noticed this before? And has it already been mentioned somewhere on here?
