Pulp Fiction (1994) – the coffee shop conversation

VINCENT
So if you’re quitting the life, what’ll you do?

JULES
That’s what I’ve been sitting here contemplating. First, I’m gonna deliver this case to Marsellus. Then, basically, I’m gonna walk the earth.

VINCENT
What do you mean, walk the earth?

JULES
You know, like Caine in “KUNG FU.” Just walk from town to town, meet people, get in adventures.

VINCENT
How long do you intend to walk the earth?

JULES
Until God puts me where he want me to be.

VINCENT
What if he never does?

JULES
If it takes forever, I’ll wait forever.

VINCENT
So you decided to be a bum?

JULES
I’ll just be Jules, Vincent – no more, no less.

VINCENT
No Jules, you’re gonna be like those pieces of shit out there who beg for change. They walk around like a bunch of fuckin’ zombies, they sleep in garbage bins, they eat what I throw away, and dogs piss on ’em. They got a word for ’em, they’re called bums. And without a job, residence, or legal tender, that’s what you’re gonna be – a fuckin’ bum!

JULES
Look my friend, this is just where me and you differ –

VINCENT
– what happened was peculiar – no doubt about it – but it wasn’t water into wine.

JULES
All shapes and sizes, Vince.

VINCENT
Stop fuckin’ talkin’ like that!

JULES
If you find my answers frightening, Vincent, you should cease askin’ scary questions.
