#1

ok, so here we just list every way that any qt movie is connected to any other qt movie,

(i know we already know what they are, but i really like listing things!)

My Best Friend’s Birthday

True Romance

Reservoir Dogs

Pulp Fiction

Natural Born Killers

From Dusk Till Dawn

Jackie Brown

Kill Bill

yay! another superb list!

newayz, so alls i can think of right now is:

Rd to Pf: Marcellus’s name

Pf to KB: samurai sword

this isn’t really one, but i to think it is: i’d like to think the diamonds from rd are in the suitcase in pf

so, im sure there are a million others!

coming out of a brain fart



the reprise in kill bill of the sheriff from fdtd

kBilly in rd and kb

Red Apple cigarettes

Kaboom! and Fruit Brute cereals

quote in kb and fdtd "are we absolutely clear about rule #1?"

the Fox Force Five in pf and the DiVAS in kb


#3

some more:

Nurse Bonnie: mentioned in RD, Jimmy’s wife in PF, and, if you’ve read the original Kill Bill script, there is a Nurse B. Owens who could possibly be Bonnie.

The Vega Brothers: Vic (RD), Vincent (PF), and Virgil? i just read this somewhere, i think it’s from TR.
