He had the car in storage while he was in Amsterdam. He got back five days ago and immediately got the car out of storage. During the five days that he has been back someone has already keyed it. I doubt that Butch keyed his car because only a coward would do something like that. The fact that his car was keyed was simply small-talk and shouldn’t be dwelled upon any further.
[/quote]But in the script it mentions Butch’s Honda was parked outside, then Vincent pulls in next to him. And after Vincent fucks with him, Butch exacts his revenge by keying his car. Remember the bar was empty, so those were the only vehicles parked at the time. And the next day he mentions to Lance “You know what some fucker did the OTHER day. Fucking keyed it.” Then he expresses his anger toward Butch “I wish I could’ve caught that asshole doing it”. But that’s not the point. Actually I forgot what the point was so I have to look into it again. . .
Oh yeah immidiately after the diner incident they walk out, now if we followed the film in linear fashion, the Marsellus bar scene would follow, to which I query their very own arrival, it could be that Vincent went back to his house to pick up his vehicle, but that’s very unlikely seeing that it is still very early in the morning. If you bridge time and action from the scene where Vinny and Jules are driving toward Brett’s, to Marvin being shot in the head, to the diner scene, you will see the time lapse evolve. . .how did Vincent get his Malibu?
