Will 'Three Days to Kill's' Kevin Costner join their ranks?
3. Jules, "Pulp Fiction" (1994)
Want to get a party started? Open with the line "Well there's this passage I got memorized, Ezekiel 25:17..." Be sure you have it memorized, because it is just one of the many memorable lines from Samuel L. Jackson's Jules from "Pulp Fiction," and you know what he'd say if you screwed it up. It barely matters that Jules could shoot a gun without hesitation; this assassin's verbosity and skillful maneuvering around the English language's saltiest nouns already kills you dead.
