“That’s pride fucking with you. Fuck pride. Pride only hurts, it never helps.” – Marcellus Wallace from Pulp Fiction
I was in college when Pulp Fiction hit cable and it was in heavy rotation. I’d never seen it before August 1995, so I was unaware that the story was told out of sequence. All I know is that it never made any sense because I would sit in on it 20 minutes here and 10 minutes there while I was in between classes or heading out to grab something to eat. I’d seen the diner scene about 10 times before I realized that it was 2 different parts of the movie. It was probably 2 years later before I was able to sit down and watch it from beginning to end.
At this point, the Ungoodwise narrative is not being told sequentially, but this arc should help establish some benchmarks for events the series, so let go back to 2005.
