Choose a specific dialogue and post it on the forum (please make it short), explain why you think it is a good (or bad!) dialogue

DIALOGUE FROM: PULP FICTION



VINCENT

Thanks a bunch.

(to Jules, who's nursing

his coffee)

Want a sausage?



JULES

Naw, I don't eat pork.



VINCENT

Are you Jewish?



JULES

I ain't Jewish man, I just don't

dig on swine.



VINCENT

Why not?



JULES

They're filthy animals. I don't eat

filthy animals.



VINCENT

Sausages taste good. Pork chops

taste good.



JULES

A sewer rat may taste like pumpkin

pie. I'll never know 'cause even

if it did, I wouldn't eat the

filthy motherfucker. Pigs sleep and

root in shit. That's a filthy

animal. I don't wanna eat nothin'

that ain't got enough sense to

disregard its own feces.

126.



VINCENT

How about dogs? Dogs eat their own

feces.



JULES

I don't eat dog either.



VINCENT

Yes, but do you consider a dog to

be a filthy animal?



JULES

I wouldn't go so far as to call a

dog filthy, but they're definitely

dirty. But a dog's got personality.

And personality goes a long way.



VINCENT

So by that rationale, if a pig had

a better personality, he's cease to

be a filthy animal?



JULES

We'd have to be talkin' 'bout one

motherfuckin' charmin' pig. It'd

have to be the Cary Grant of pigs.

The two men laugh.



This particular scene comes towards the end of the film, during the final act. I feel that this particular piece of dialogue is so effective as it takes place just after all of the  large events of the film have taken place and it is such a calm piece of conversation, like two men discussing things after a large storm has it. It also helps to further build characterisation of two of the central protaginists, even when we as audience members think we have learnt everything about them during the bulk of the film before this scene.
