"Zed's Dead, Baby. Zed's Dead": Pulp Fiction Analysis Part XIX

Go to Part XVIII: "I'm gonna get medieval on your ass!"

Butch arrives back at the motel to retrieve Fabienne. As he tries to rush her out she is reasonably concerned about why Butch is covered in blood, whether or not they are in danger and where he got the motorcycle (“It’s a chopper, baby.”) The more he tries to rush her, the more upset she becomes and breaks down crying. Now again, he has to sweet-talk her down so they can be on their way. It’s a scene played for great comic effect after the horrific show we witnessed during the last ten minutes. Butch and Fabienne ride off down the street on the chopper. This moment is the last scene in the film’s narrative.

Title card: “The Bonnie Situation.”
