Trivia from Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004)
The large wooden flute played by Bill (David Carradine) actually is the exact same flute that David Carradine plays as Kwai Chang Caine in "Kung Fu" (1972). Carradine brought the flute to rehearsals and Quentin Tarantino decided to find a way to put it in the movie.
Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah) wears the same outfit that Uma Thurman wears in Pulp Fiction (1994). It was also worn by Pam Grier in Jackie Brown (1997).
The character Pai Mei appears in several Shaw Bros Kung Fu films from the 1970s-80s including Hung wen tin san po pai lien chiao (1980). Pai Mei means "White Eyebrow".
In the script, Pai Mei is a master of the Ten-Point Palm - exploding heart technique, in the film Pai Mei is the master of the Five-Point Palm - exploding heart technique.
The Bride never actually says anything to Budd.
Choreographer Woo-ping Yuen was originally set to play Pai Mei but could not fit it in with his choreography, so Quentin Tarantino considered playing it himself for a little while before picking Chia Hui Liu for the part.
Quentin Tarantino originally intended to only have Pai Mei's lips speaking Cantonese, while his voice would be in English, imitating a bad dub job. Tarantino was going to provide the voice himself. In the end, Tarantino abandoned this idea and Pai Mei's voice is actor Chia Hui Liu.
Daryl Hannah improvised the scene where Elle Driver's eye gets removed by The Bride and going "nuts". She did this because she thought it would make Quentin Tarantino laugh (he did laugh at this and putted this scene in the final film). She sustained injures from breaking the bathroom stuff. The props she broke are real.
The book that Esteban Vihaio (Michael Parks) reads is "The Carrucan's of Kurrajong" by Jasmine Yuen. Jasmine Yuen Carrucan is one of the crew members.
Budd's boss, Larry, mentions Budd being as useless as an "asshole right here", referring to his elbow. In The Rules of Attraction (2002), directed by Tarantino's former creative partner Roger Avary, the character Rupert Guest says, "I need you like I need an asshole on my elbow."
Director Trademark: [Quentin Tarantino] [cereal] Quentin Tarantino features old boxes of cereal in his movies, in the final scene there is an old box of Lucky Charms on the table in the hotel room.
The box that Vernita Green in Kil Bill vol 1 has the gun in is "KaBoom!" cereal.
The white Honda that Butch crashes in Pulp Fiction (1994) and that is driven in Jackie Brown (1997) is seen at the parking lot of the strip club Budd (Michael Madsen) works at as the title of Chapter 7 appears.
The climax of the film was originally written as a sword-fight on the beach under the moonlight between The Bride (clad in her wedding dress) and Bill. When the production ran long, Harvey Weinstein insisted Quentin Tarantino cut the scene back. All that remains is Bill's brief reference to such a fight while The Bride sits on his sofa, and the poster for the film with The Bride in dress holding her sword.
Esteban (Michael Parks) tells the Bride that Bill's villa is on "the road to Salina". This a reference to the Rita Hayworth film Road to Salina (1971).)
The schnapps that Budd is holding while talking to Bill is called "Black Death" and is originally from Iceland but is now made in Denmark.
Wait after the credits for an alternate take of The Bride ripping out one of the Crazy 88's eyes.
Although Quentin Tarantino is known for never using real brands for products like cereals and cigarettes, the brand of the bread he uses to make the sandwich during the "Emilio's killing story" scene, BIMBO, is a real and very popular brand of bread in Mexico.
In the first film forty-one people are seen killed, in this film only three are seen killed.
In an earlier draft of the script The Bride doesn't remove Elle Driver's remaining eye. In that same draft Elle is killed by having her throat slit, in the final film however The Bride leaves Elle Driver alive.
Also the eye sequence is a tribute to lucio fulci horror films.
Esteban is played by Michael Parks, who played sherif Sheriff Earl McGraw in Kill Bill Vol 1
Pai Mei was played by Gordon Liu who also played on of the Crazy 88 in Kill Bill Vol 1
