Lena’s Noteworth Comments:
- Jill notes that the Quentin Tarantino’s dialogue mimic’s David Mamet in terms of vulgarity and taking language down to its grittiest content (there are 272 uses of the word “f–k.”)
- The opening diner scene gives a hint as to the “rat” in the group when Mr. Orange gives up Mr. Pink as one who didn’t contribute to the table’s tip.
- Contrary to what Tony might believe, three (not four) of the eight cast members are now deceased (Chris Penn, Lawrence Tierney and Edward Bunker.) Tony included Harvey Keitel in that list and was called out by the chat room.
Tony’s Interesting Point (TIP):
- Note what David says at the end of this about Kathy Bates… then make sure you listen to what he says about her in the next episode.
