Be a Bad Motherf—er With These 15 ‘Pulp Fiction’ Facts

Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction was groundbreaking in many ways, particularly in the way its characters talked. The film uses the F-word 265 times, which in 1994 was second only to Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas, which had 300. In the years since Pulp Fiction hit theaters, the usage of the word spiked and now Pulp Fiction is not even listed among the Top 25. That’s just one of the surprising facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, so grab a Royale With Cheese and get to know more about Pulp Fiction!

If you’ve ever wanted to eat at the classic diner whose scenes bookends Pulp Fiction, you missed your chance. The Hawthorne Grill in Los Angeles had been a fixture in the neighborhood since 1956, but was torn down a few years later to make way for a big box auto parts store. And if you ever wanted to drink a $5 milkshake, we’re sorry to tell you that Jack Rabbit Slim’s was just a huge set built on a soundstage in Culver City, California.
