Vincent Vega goes to the bathroom, not once, not twice but three times during the course of Pulp Fiction.

Discuss.

So he can talk to himself and do coke. I thought that was obvious.

Didn't Vincent's story span not one, not two, but three days?

I think the bigger question is has he ever come back from the bathroom to find his food waiting for him?

I think the real question is why do bad things happen while he's in the bathroom?

Also, at the beginning and end stories, he talks in this kind of attempt at a southern accent, I guess. It's like he drops it during the Mia Wallace story.

Heroin can make you constipated (see trainspotting), so when he's on it he probably always has to go, and if he's trying to quit he probably really has to go.

Pork chops taste good.

I think he was just really enjoying that book he was reading.

If he spends that much time sitting on the toilet reading, he must have hemorrhoids the size of plums.
