Pulp Fiction - Which Came First the Bullet or the Hole
In the second scene when Travolta and Jackson go to get the glowing brief case, subtitled, "The Bonnie Situation" the bullet holes seem to be there before the gun shots.
Just before the gun toting kid comes out of the bathroom you can see one bullet hole on the wall behind each of Jackson's shoulders. After the kid comes out and shoots you can see where one of the charges did not go off to make a hole. A few moments later the hole is where the plaster was.

uhh-uh, Jules. YOU'RE wrong. Think you'd better go watch your 'favourite movie' all over again. The slip-up described IS part of 'The Bonnie Situation'. Jules and Vincent survive the gunshots, then Jules tells MARVIN to shut the f*** up and they get in the car, where Marvin gets his face blown off. They then have to go to Jimmy's house... all part of the Bonnie Situation. Just how many times HAVE you seen it?

Did none of you realise that the bullet holes are supposed to be there!? The fact that the holes in the wall obviously did not come from the gun fired at Vince and Jules adds to the idea of the miracle that Jules witnessed. That the bullets from that gun did not hit anything, maybe god came down and stopped them?!

Yep. I caught that slip up in the movies. The movie was so fresh and crazy to me the first time I saw it, that it really did not distract me all that much. I loved that movie! I must have had my mouth wide open the entire picture! Except for Butch's scene where he and his hoe sweet talk each other in the motel room--I found that dull...and annoynig!

man, this is my favorite movie, and i have seen it countless times! that scene is NOT subtitled the bonnie situation!!!!! the bonnie situation is where vincent shoots marvin in the face and they go to jimmy's house (quentin tarantino), and QT tells about how his wife BONNIE would divorce him if there was a dead body in his garage!

It is part of the Bonnie Situation - a dead Marvin and a bloody car are the reason for the "situation". I noticed the hole last night for the first time. I saw the film on first release and countless times since but I am not one to usually notice theses things. I like the theory that the holes were supposed to be there - I can't imagine it would not have been caught in an otherwise flawless film.

Those holes were obvious on the video, I can't imagine what they were like in the cinema!
