Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction share a supporting character that spawned the best recurring actor joke in the Tarantino cinematic universe.
Reservoir dogs Y Pulp fiction shares a character who has no dialogue but seems to have very bad luck: here are who they are. Quentin Tarantino’s career as a filmmaker began in 1992 with the crime film. Reservoir dogs, which although it had a limited release, was very well received by critics and viewers, becoming a cult classic. However, Tarantino’s big break came two years later with another crime movie but with a different narrative style: Pulp fiction, often regarded as his best work.
Reservoir dogs follows a group of thieves (all with different color-based code names) whose planned jewelry store heist goes horribly wrong, and if that wasn’t enough, there was an undercover cop among them. Pulp fictionOn the other hand, it follows different characters in their own segments that make up a larger story, but the film stands out for its non-linear narrative. These two films marked the beginning of the “Tarantino movie universe” and even have interrelated characters, notably Vic Vega / Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen) and Vincent Vega (John Travolta). However, they also share a supporting character, whose role in both films is the best recurring actor joke in the Tarantino universe.

As mentioned above, the robbery in Reservoir dogs It doesn’t go according to plan and some of the thieves die, while the rest escape as best they can and then reunite with the rest in a warehouse. Once there, Mr. White (Harvey Keitel) and Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) discuss what happened and what could have gone wrong, and Mr. White asks Mr. Pink how he escaped. The film then goes on to a flashback showing Mr. Pink running from the police and, during the chase, he is hit by a car. Mr. Pink takes out the woman who was driving the car and takes it, managing to escape the police. Now jumping to Pulp fiction, in the segment that follows Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis), he meets Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames) on the street and hits him with his car, and immediately after Butch’s car is hit by another. When Marsellus regains consciousness, he goes after Butch, who is being helped by two women. Marsellus shoots him but misses and shoots one of the women in the leg, causing Butch to run away and Marsellus chases after him, leaving the injured woman behind.
The gag that Reservoir dogs Y Pulp fiction they have in common that it is not so much a main character hit by a car, but the woman involved in both scenes. The same actress, whose name is Linda Kaye, plays the one who steals Mr. Pink’s car and the one who shoots Marsellus. He reportedly met Tarantino when he was working at Video Archives, prompting him to hire her. Reservoir dogs and later in Pulp fiction, giving way to a great recurring joke from the actor that is very easy to miss, even more so because his face is not shown in his only scene in Reservoir dogs. Kaye had a couple of minor roles in other movies and shorts, including that of Tarantino. My best friend’s birthday, where she played the character of “ex-girlfriend”.
Linda Kaye’s final credit as an actress is Pulp fiction, and it is unknown what happened to him after that. Kaye’s roles as “shocked woman” and “shooting lady” in Reservoir dogs Y Pulp fiction, respectively, are a fun piece of trivia from the “Tarantino movie universe,” which further connects these movies (and might somehow back up those theories that suggest Reservoir dogs is a prequel to Pulp fiction) and shows that some people tend to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, but at least she survived both incidents.
