[first lines]
Do you find me sadistic? You know, I bet I could fry an egg on your head right now, if I wanted to. You know, Kiddo, I’d like to believe that you’re aware enough even now to know that there’s nothing sadistic in my actions. Well, maybe towards those other… jokers, but not you. No Kiddo, at this moment, this is me at my most…
Bill
[cocks pistol]
masochistic.
Bill
Bill… it’s your baby…
The Bride
[BLAM!]

 

It was not my intention to do this in front of you. For that I’m sorry. But you can take my word for it, your mother had it comin’. When you grow up, if you still feel raw about it, I’ll be waiting.
– The Bride

Revenge is never a straight line. It’s a forest, And like a forest it’s easy to lose your way… To get lost… To forget where you came in.
Hattori Hanzo

So I suppose it’s a little late for an apology, huh?
Copperhead
You suppose correctly.
The Bride
Look, bitch… I need to know if you’re going to start any more shit around my baby girl.
Copperhead
You can relax for now. I’m not going to murder you in front of your child, okay?
The Bride
That’s being more rational than Bill led me to believe you were capable of.
Copperhead
It’s mercy, compassion, and forgiveness I lack. Not rationality.
The Bride
Look. I know I fucked you over. I fucked you over bad. I wish to God I hadn’t, but I did. You have every right to want to get even.
Copperhead
No, no, no, no, no. No, to get even, even-Steven… I would have to kill you… go up to Nikki’s room, kill her… then wait for your husband, the good Dr. Bell, to come home and kill him. That would be even, Vernita. That’d be about square.
The Bride

[in Japanese; subtitled] I am finished doing what I swore an oath to God 28 years ago to never do again. I’ve created, “something that kills people.” And in that purpose, I was a success. I’ve done this because, philosophically, I am sympathetic to your aim. I can tell you with no ego, this is my finest sword. If on your journey, you should encounter God, God will be cut.
– Hattori Hanzo

[last lines]
One more thing, Sofie… is she aware her daughter is still alive?
Bill

[after she cuts off Tanaka’s head, in Japanese] So you all will know the seriousness of my warning, I shall say this in English.
O-Ren Ishii
[in English] As your leader, I encourage you from time to time, and always in a respectful manner, to question my logic. If you’re unconvinced that a particular plan of action I’ve decided is the wisest, tell me so, but allow me to convince you and I promise you right here and now, no subject will ever be taboo. Except, of course, the subject that was just under discussion. The price you pay for bringing up either my Chinese or American heritage as a negative is… I collect your fucking head. Just like this fucker here. Now, if any of you sons of bitches got anything else to say, now’s the fucking time!
O-Ren Ishii
[pause]
I didn’t think so.
O-Ren Ishii
[calmly, in Japanese] Gentlemen, this meeting is adjourned.
O-Ren Ishii

[spanking a young member of the Crazy 88s with her sword] This is what you get for fucking around with Yakuzas!
The Bride
[with a last spank, lets him go]
Go home to your mother!
The Bride

Silly Caucasian girl likes to play with Samurai swords.
– O-Ren Ishii

Wiggle your big toe.
– The Bride

[her last lines] That really was a Hattori Hanzo sword.
– O-Ren Ishii

I might never have liked you. Point of fact, I despise you. But that doesn’t suggest I don’t respect you. Dying in our sleep is a luxury our kind is rarely afforded. My gift to you.
– Elle Driver

Son number one?
Earl McGraw
Yeah?

This tall drink of cocksucker ain’t dead.
