Impressive scenes & Voice overs from Kill Bill Vol. 1

This is a continuation of the last post

The Bride's lying vertically in Buck's truck's backseat. Seemingly out of danger - at least out of sight - but she's still stuck hiding in the hospital. And until she regains full use of her legs and feet, this little Bride ain't goin anywhere or doin anything.

Lying flat, with the back of her head propped up against the door, her long, lifeless legs stretched out in front of her, her two bare feet at the end of them, pointing to the sky, the Bride focusses her eyes, her stare, her thoughts, her strength, and all her concentration....on her big toe.

THE BRIDE: (monotone) Wiggle your big toe.

Toe doesn't move an inch.

THE BRIDE: Wiggle your big toe.

It doesn't move.

THE BRIDE: Wiggle your big toe.

(VOICE OVER) As I lay in the back of Buck's pickup truck, trying to will my limbs out of entropy, I could see the faces of the cunts who did this to me, and the dick responsible. Members all of Bill's brainchild; "The Deadly Viper Assassination Squad."

THE BRIDE (V.O.): Now after five years of beauty sleep I knew absolutely nothing about my enemies' strengths weakness or whereabouts. But as fated by God vengeance would have it, I who knew nothing - knew one thing. As sure as God made little green apples...


THE BRIDE (V.O.): (continued)....if O-Ren Ishii, the first name on my Death List, was still alive... she'd live in Japan. O-Ren Ishii, made her first acquaintance with death at the age of eleven.

THE BRIDE (V.O.) At twenty five she did her part in the killing of eight innocent people, including my unborn daughter, in a small wedding chapel in El Paso Texas. But on that day, five years ago, she made one big mistake...

THE BRIDE (V.O.):...she Should of killed nine. However, before satisfaction would be mine, first things first...

CU The BRIDE IN BUCK'S TRUCK An hour and a half later from the last time we saw her.

THE BRIDE: Wiggle your big toe.

CU The BRIDE'S BIG TOE wiggles - slightly.

THE BRIDE (V.O.): When fortune smiles on something as violent and ugly as revenge, at the time it seems proof like no other, that not only does God exist, you're doing his will. At a time when I knew the last about my enemies, the first name on my death list, was the easiest to find. But of course, when one manages the difficult task of becoming queen of the Tokyo underworld, one doesn't keep it a secret, does one?

I remember the one that you see below very distinctly, as this is the last scene of the Kill Bill Vol. 1. Another impressive thing is the way in which Uma Thurman delivers the dialogue. Here she is talking to Sofie (quite a pretty lady ahnn...).

THE BRIDE (ENGLISH): I'm allowing you to keep your wicked life for one reason and one reason only. So you can tell him, in person, everything that happened here tonight. I want him to witness the extent of my mercy..., by witnessing your deformed body. I want you to tell him, all the information you just told me. I want him to know what I know. I want him to know I want him to know.

THE BRIDE (ENGLISH): And I want them all to know, they'll all soon be as dead as O REN.
