Pulp Fiction: Jules says "My name is Pitt." Pitt???

When Brett asks Jules’ name, he says “My name’s Pitt, and you ain’t talkin’ your ass outta this shit.”

Why Pitt? Was this only to rhyme with “shit”? Or was there some other reason? According to IMDB the character’s name is Jules Winnfield, so it’s not his last name.

Yep, it’s just to rhyme.

I thought it was “My names Pitt, and your not digging your way outta this shit”

Damn me

“My name is Pitt, and your ass ain’t talkin’ your way outta this shit.”

scablet has it right.

And they did the same sort of thing later on, too. At the bar afterwards when Jules & Vincent are waiting to talk to Marcellus, Jules & the bartender are teasing Vincent about his upcoming date with Mia.

Bartender says: “My name’s Paul, and this is just between y’all.”

Tarantino: mildly gifted with dialogue but hella repetetive.

par exemple,

In True Romance: Do I look like a beautiful blonde with big tits and an ass that tastes like french vanilla ice cream? … Then why you telling me all this bullshit, huh? You wanna fuck me?

In Reservoir Dogs: You keep talking like a bitch, Im-a smack you like a bitch!

In Pulp Fiction: Does he look like a bitch? … Then why you try to fuck him like a bitch?

I took it to mean that Brett, Flock of Seagulls and the Jerry Seinfeld-look-a-like in the bathroom were in a “pit” of shit that they could not talk their way (climb) out of.

It’s a common Black method of making your phrases more interesting.

“My names Bennett - I ain’t in it.”
“I’m starving like Marvin.”
