“I’m givin’ you that money so I don’t have to kill your ass. You read the Bible, Ringo?…Well, there’s this passage I got memorized. Ezekiel 25:17. ‘The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon you.’
I been saying that s–t for years, and if you heard it, that meant your ass. I never gave much thought to what it meant. I just thought it was some cold-blooded s–t to say to a mother f–ker before I popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some s–t this mornin’ made me think twice. See, now I’m thinkin’ maybe it means you’re the evil man and I’m the righteous man, and Mr. 9-millimeter here, he’s the shepherd protectin’ my righteous ass in the valley of darkness. Or it could mean you’re the righteous man and I’m the shepherd, and it’s the world that’s evil and selfish. Now, I’d like that. But that s–t ain’t the truth. The truth is, you’re the weak and I’m the tyranny of evil men. But I’m tryin’, Ringo. I’m tryin’ real hard to be the shepherd. Go.” -Jules Winnfield, Pulp Fiction
Just write cool s–t.
Write the coolest baddest mother f–king lines and parts that actors would kill to say and do.
And audiences would kill to watch.
The rest will take care of itself.
