The setup: the boxer Butch Coolidge played by a year-old Bruce Willis double-crosses crime boss Marsellus Wallace Ving Rhames ; instead of throwing a prizefight, he bets on himself and wins. The next morning, Butch heads to his apartment to fetch a watch; while there, he kills Vincent John Travolta and hits Marsellus with the car. A limping chase on foot leads them both into a pawnshop, where Butch punches out Marsellus and the proprietor, Maynard, concusses Butch. Maynard is joined by his cousin, Zed, and their leather-clad servant, the Gimp; Zed decides that they will rape Marsellus first. Once they take Marsellus into the adjoining room, Butch knocks out the Gimp with a single punch, and heads upstairs to freedom.
