Pulp Fiction Dance SceneThere’s only one correct answer to the question: “Have you seen Pulp Fiction?” That would be: “You mean, this week?”

Because Quentin Tarantino’s movie is so chock full of gory violence – yes, we realize that that can pretty much describe any Tarantino film – only the premium cable networks can run it. And run it. And run it. In fact, if you click here, you’ll find its current schedule. It’s the ultimate guilty pleasure: when you’re channel surfing at night, you know that there’s a reasonable chance you’ll stumble upon Pulp Fiction. And no matter what scene is on, you’re there!

What a cast! John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Christopher Walken, Eric Stoltz.

Pulp Fiction has dozens of unforgettable lines in Tarantino’s and Roger Avary’s Academy Award-winning screenplay. Just read these and you’ll know exactly what scene they’re from.

“Royale with cheese!” “There is no me and you. Not no more.” “Hamburgers! The cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast.” “And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.” “Zed’s dead, baby. Zed’s dead.”

The film earned the Palme d’Or at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival and had its U.S. release on Oct. 14 of that year.

“Did you get your blueberry pancakes?”

Of all the memorable scenes in the movie, the one with Travolta and Thurman on the dance floor while listening to Chuck Berry’s “You Never Can Tell” is probably our favorite, thanks to the actors’ attitudes and style points.  Our Classic Video of the Pulp Fiction dance scene…

Thurman, born April 29, 1970, was only 24 when the film was released. Jackson turns 75 on December 21, 2023; Travolta celebrated his 69th on February 18, 2023.

    John Travolta one of the best Hollywood actors of my time. From Welcome Back Kotter, to Urban Cowboy to Pulp Fiction. Great actor and human being. Cheers John.
