This Forever 16 story from October/November 1994 took a long time to write, but it was a lot of fun. There's so many excellent, spoofable moments in Pulp Fiction, it was hard to narrow it down to just six.
It took a bit of thinking to settle on "Buddy Holly" as the song, but I realized it was perfect - not only was it current in 1994 and something both Joel and Michelle would like, but Buddy Holly also serves as another reference to the Jackrabbit Slim's scene in the movie.
Just as an aside, I grew up with Hardee's back in Lancaster, SC. Way back in the early '60s, it was known as Chip's Burgers (and btw, was rumored to be using horse meat instead of ground beef). I even remember their cartoon mascot, Gilbert Giddyup (and his nemesis, Speedy McGreedy).
Tarantino would be blushing right now, Jesse --- "...So, she looks over to her husband, then sets it back down in her lap and says, 'Honey, this one's eating my popcorn.'"- Agent K ("Men in Black", 1997)
