Have I ever mentioned what’s in the briefcase in Pulp Fiction? I keep meaning to. I’ve known what it was since the first time I saw the film.
It’s the Holy Grail.
It emits an unaccountable light. It’s a conduit of grace. Everyone who sees it is struck with wonder, and no one needs to have it explained. Miracles happen in its vicinity, but it’s deeply perilous for those who reject or misuse it. It’s spoken of in the singular. The scripture-quoting Jules says it belongs to his boss.
What else could it possibly be?
