Does anybody out there know exactly (but a good approximation will do) how many suits Uma Thurman kills in the scene before she fights O-Ren in the garden?

Mostly it’s curiosity, but if I get an answer, it means I have the best Halloween costume I’ve thought of in years.

Well, weren’t they called “The crazy 88”? So, 88 plus the schoolgirl, the lawyer, and a couple more, but minus the last of the 88 whom she spanks and sends on his way.

How many she kills, or just how many she maims? Not all of them were killed. Remember at the end she tells those who are still alive to leave (but to leave their fallen comrades and any severed limbs behind). So I’m not sure how many she actually killed.

I should point out that “8” is considered a lucky number in the far east. A Japanse gang might use “88” as its name for that reason, and not necessarily to reflect the size of its membership.
