Quentin Tarantino
Pulp Fiction (Lance & Vincent Scene)
14. INT. LANCE'S BEDROOM - NIGHT 14.

Lance, late-20s, is a young man with a wild and woolly
appearance that goes hand-in-hand with his wild and woolly
personality. Lance has been selling drugs his entire a****
life. He's never had a day job, never filed a tax return and
has never been arrested. He wears a red flannel shirt over a
"Speed Racer" tee-shirt.

Three bags of heroin lie on Lance's bed.

Lance and Vincent stand at the foot of the bed.

LANCE
Now this is Panda, from Mexico.
Very good stuff. This is Bava,
different, but equally good. And
this is Choco from the Hartz
Mountains of Germany. Now the
first two are the same, forty-five
an ounce -- those are friend prices
-- but this one...
(pointing to the Choco)
...this one's a little more
expensive. It's fifty-five. But
when you shoot it, you'll know
where that extra money went.
Nothing wrong with the first two.
It's real, real, real, good sh*t.
But this one's a f**kin' madman.

VINCENT
Remember, I just got back from
Amsterdam.

LANCE
Am I a n***er? Are you in
Inglewood? No. You're in my
house. White people who know the
difference between good sh*t and
bad sh*t, this is the house they
come to. My sh*t, I'll take the
Pepsi Challenge with Amsterdam sh*t
any ol' day of the f**kin' week.
VINCENT
That's a bold statement.

LANCE
This ain't Amsterdam, Vince. This
is a seller's market. Coke is
f**kin' dead as disco. Heroin's
comin' back in a big f**kin' way.
It's this whole seventies retro.
Bell bottoms, heroin, they're as
hot as hell.

Vincent takes out a roll of money that would choke a horse to
death.

VINCENT
Give me three hundred worth of the
madman. If it's as good as you
say, I'll be back for a thousand.

LANCE
I just hope I still have it.
Whaddya think of Trudi? She ain't
got a boyfriend, wanna hand out an'
get high?
VINCENT
Which one's Trudi? The one with
all the sh*t in her face?

LANCE
No, that's Jody. That's my wife.

Vincent and Lance giggle at the "faux pas."

VINCENT
I'm on my way somewhere. I got a
dinner engagement. Rain check?

LANCE
No problem?

Vincent takes out his case of the works (utensils for shooting
up).

VINCENT
You don't mind if I shoot up here?

LANCE
Me casa, su casa.

VINCENT
Mucho gracias.

Vincent takes his works out of his case and, as the two
continue to talk, Vince shoots up.

LANCE
Still got your Malibu?

VINCENT
You know what some f**ker did to it
the other day?

LANCE
What?

VINCENT
F**kin' keyed it.

LANCE
Oh man, that's f**ked up.

VINCENT
Tell me about it. I had the
goddamn thing in storage three
years. It's out five f**kin' days
-- five days, and some d**kless
piece of sh*t f**ks with it.

LANCE
They should be f**kin' killed. No
trial, no jury, straight to
execution.

As he cooks his heroin --

VINCENT
I just wish I caught 'em doin' it,
ya know? Oh man, I'd give anything
to catch 'em doin' it. It'a been
worth his doin' it, if I coulda
just caught 'em, you know what I
mean?

LANCE
It's chicken sh*t. You don't f**k
another man's vehicle.

CU - THE NEEDLE
going into Vincent's vein.

CU - BLOOD
spurting back into the syringe, mixing with the heroin.

CU OF VINCENT'S THUMB
pushing down on the plunger.
