    When Butch escapes the pawn shop in Pulp Fiction he sees a neon sign that says 'Killian’s Red', but as some of the letters are missing it reads 'Kill ed'. Picking up Zed's keys, Butch looks at the 'Z' on the keyring, subliminally spelling out 'Kill Zed'. It's then that Butch goes to save Marcellus.

    In Django Unchained (2012), Django meets a character played by Franco Nero who asks him to spell his name. Django spells out his name and comments the "D" is silent. Nero's character replies that he knows already-because Franco Nero played the original Django (1966) who largely inspired this film.

    Posted by Redditor u/ReeceInTheDarkness:

    In Django Unchained (2012) at the beginning of the film we see that Django's teeth are dirty and yellow but by the end of the film they are clean. This is because his traveling companion for the entire movie was Dr. King Schultz, previously a dentist, who more than likely cleaned his teeth.
