No, Butch didn't key Vincent's car.


Its clear he didn't even know who Vincent was (looks like its the first time they've met), and so he wouldn't know which was Vincent's car.

don't think there was ever an implication that Butch keyed Vincent's car?

Actually Tarantino more or less confirmed that Butch was the culprit. After their confrontation at the bar, we don’t know how Butch found out, but the timeline fits and he had motive. For sake of argument, after his meeting with Wallace, he might have seen Vincent getting into his car and returned on another day to key it in the bar parking lot. That’s just one possibility.

Well I suppose it doesn't really matter since he ends up getting back at him by blowing him away with a machine gun.

I think he keyed it just fine, punchy!

reply

I love the idea, but I don't think Butch would which car belonged to Vincent.

reply

Butch COULDN'T have keyed Vincent's car because Vincent didn't drive there. They took a cab there because the car they had driven to the job and been crushed along with Marvin's body.

reply

He could have taken the cab back home first and picked up his car there.

Marcellus might have keyed it just to get his boy all mean mode.
