I actually liked Butch and Fabienne. You see, their scene does slow the plot down, especially after that crappy cab scene, so people are more waiting for the story to move than concentrating on their scene. Fabienne makes Butch into a much nicer guy, which makes his dillema at the Pawn Shop a little more believable. If he really were the scumbag that we watch kill a boxer, kill two men, run over a guy, and then try to shoot him in the face, I wouldn't like him. But he has a life aside from all of the dramatic activity, which makes me feel for him.
