Jules: “You read the Bible, Brett?”
Jules: “Well, there’s this passage I’ve got memorized that sort of fits this occasion. Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of the evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and goodwill, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper, and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee!”

It ain’t no fuckin’ ballpark either. Now look, maybe your method of massage differs from mine, but touchin’ his wife’s feet, and stickin’ your tongue in her holyiest of holies, ain’t the same ballpark, it ain’t the same league, it ain’t even the same fuckin’ sport. Foot massages don’t mean shit.
Butch: So we cool?
Marsellus: Yeah, we cool. Two things. Don’t tell nobody about this. This shit is between me, you, and Mr. Soon-to-be-living-the-rest-of-his-short-ass-life-in-agonizing-pain-rapist here. It ain’t nobody else’s business. Two: you leave town tonight, right now. And when you’re gone, you stay gone, or you be gone. You lost all your L.A. privileges. Deal?
Marsellus: Get your ass out of here.

Pumpkin: Which one is your wallet?
Jules: It’s the one that says Bad Motherfucker.
Jules: I used the same fuckin’ soap you did and when I got finished, the towel didn’t look like no god-damn Maxi-Pad.
So what does it feel like to kill a man with your bare hands? It’s a topic I’m very interested in.
