Who could forget such characters as Jules Winnfield and Vincent Vega from Pulp Fiction or Beatrix Kiddo from Kill Bill? You'll even find Tarantino, himself, on this list in the role of Mr. Brown.

    I got a threshold, Jules. I got a threshold for the abuse that I will take. Now, right now, I'm a f*ckin' race car, right, and you got me the red. And I'm just sayin', I'm just sayin' that it's f*ckin' dangerous to have a race car in the f*ckin' red. That's all. I could blow.
