Seems like every movie that has a dance contest and John Travolta, he wins.

Actually, it seems that he didn't win in Pulp Fiction...

Apparently, if you listen closely to one of the radios in the background you hear of a robbery at Jack Rabbit Slim's of a dance trophy! So I guess Vincent and Mia made off with the trophy after the contest.

Yes, it is indicated that they stole the trophy in Pulp Fiction.

I've never seen all of Saturday Night Fever, but I thought they came in second place in that movie. I thought it was sort of like Rocky not winning the fight, but going the distance.

They came in first, but Travolta's character didn't think they deserved the award and gave it to the runners-up.

I didnt realize the stole the trophy in Pulp Fiction, thats cool.


Yea, about Saturday Night Fever, they were outclassed but they were given first place, and Travolta thought they didnt deserve the win.
