Say what one more time! From its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May 1994, "Pulp Fiction" has been a treasure-trove of quotes, a fan favorite and a star vehicle for John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson, who play Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield, respectively. Here's a look back at some of the film's memorable scenes: Miramax Films
From "The Fox Force Five" failed TV pilot to a heroin overdose, Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) is the reigning queen of the film. Miramax Films
Mia's husband, Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames), defines "scary boss" and is the reason we now fear the phrase to "go medieval." Miramax Films
Harvey Keitel plays Winston "The Wolf" Wolfe, a fixer. Here he appears with the film's writer-director Quentin Tarantino, who plays Jimmie Dimmick in the movie. Miramax Films
"Pulp Fiction" revived the career of John Travolta, who had faltered in Hollywood after becoming a pop culture phenomenon in films such as "Saturday Night Fever" and "Grease." He revisits his dancing skills in the Tarantino film in this scene where he takes Thurman out for a night on the town. Miramax Films
Bruce Willis plays boxer Butch Coolidge, who runs afoul of Marsellus Wallace and will do anything to get his watch back. Miramax Films
Tim Roth and Amanda Plummer play robbers Ringo and Yolanda, aka "Pumpkin" and "Honey Bunny," whose run-in with Jules and Vincent is pivotal. Miramax Films
It was a bad day for Marvin all the way around when he went for a ride with Vincent and Jules. Miramax Films
