Plot holes: When Capt. Koons is telling 5-year-old Butch about his father’s gold watch, he says his father hid the watch for 5 years, then when his father died of dysentery, he gave Koons the watch, which he hid for an additional 2 years before he was sent home. A total of seven years, since 5 year old Butch’s father was put in the P.O.W. camp. Maybe it wasn’t HIS father’s watch after all!
Continuity: The color of the cheese on the Big Kahuna Burger changes with the close-up.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Jules’ quote of Ezekiel 25:17 is not accurate. However, he’s not a priest/minister, and he’s more giving his interpretation of that verse than really quoting it.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: In the parking lot of Jack Rabbit Slim’s, Mia says, “Don’t be a …” Instead of forming the expected square with her hands, she draws a rectangle (its edges are animated). But Mia tries not to do what’s expected.
Continuity: When arriving home from Jack Rabbit Slim’s, Mia is wearing Vincent’s coat. She places her rolled cigarette in her mouth and is not wearing the coat, but when she lights up, she once again is wearing it.
Continuity: Winston Wolf opens the car door to inspect the cleaning job. However, when the camera looks inside (through the window), the door appears closed.
Continuity: Neither Jules or Vincent take the suitcase from Brett’s apartment when they leave, yet they have it later.
Continuity: The straw in Mia’s $5 milkshake changes from paper to plastic.
Continuity: The Wolf tells Joe at the towing yard that the car they’ll be bringing in is a '74 Chevy Nova, green. When we see the car a few shots later, it’s yellow. (We haven’t seen the exterior before, but he has.)
Continuity: In Jack Rabbit Slim’s, Mia’s lipstick alternates between very dark red and very pale pink.
Revealing mistakes: When Butch is in the cab after the fight, the car has cigarette smoke in it. The smoke can be seen slowly drifting out of the open windows clearly indicating that the car is not moving.
Factual errors: Stabbing such a thin and long needle into the sternum would most likely cause it to break no matter how sharp the point is.
Factual errors: Adrenaline would have no effect on a patient with life-threatening levels of heroin in his/her system.
Factual errors: The drug (e.g., Narcan) for a heroin overdose is normally injected intravenously, since an attempt to send it directly to the heart as shown would most likely leave it languishing in muscle tissue, where its absorption rate will be too slow to be effective.
Continuity: When the fourth man in Brett’s apartment fires at Jules and Vincent, the wheel on his revolver does not spin.
Continuity: When Vincent and Mia are in Jack Rabbit’s, the video wall behind them showing a street scene jumps (e.g., cars and people disappear) each time the shot switches from Vincent to Mia.
Continuity: Before the guy in the bathroom fires on Jules and Vincent, the bullet holes are already visible in the back wall behind them.
Crew or equipment visible: When Vincent enters Mia’s home for the first time, a camera and a camera operator are clearly visible in a reflection on the windows in front of them. They have a black blanket or tarp covering them to make them harder to see.
Continuity: When Fabienne starts talking about breakfast, she sits on the bed with her hand on her foot. When we see her from behind, her hand is at her head.
Continuity: When butch gets back in the car after going home to get his watch, the radio is playing. It was not playing when he left the car.
Continuity: In the final diner scene Jules refers to his pistol as “Mr. 9mm”. It is clearly a Colt .45 Automatic.
Crew or equipment visible: When Bonnie comes through the living room into the kitchen in The Bonnie Situation you can see the shadow of the cameraman following behind her.
