So did he or didn’t he?


Did Antoine give Mia a foot massage or not? I had the feeling that Mia was lying when she denied it.

I think the foot massage happened. Remember at first Mia says Antoine "Fell out of a window." acting like she didn't know that Marcellus was involved. But the last thing she says on the topic is "The only people who know why Marcellus threw Antoine out that window are Marcellus and Antoine." That statement shows that not only does she believe her husband threw a man out a window, but Vincent was not the first person to tell her about it. So that shows that she was lying at first, which raises the questions of why she was lying, and what else could she be lying about?

Perhaps but that alone isn't confirmation. Mia could have initially been covering for her husband by claiming Tony rocky Horror "fell" out of a window. Criminals tend to feign ignorance about that sort of thing and don't give up information easily. Once it was obvious Vincent knew Tony was thrown out a window by Marcellus, there was no longer any point of keeping up the facade. Another possibility is that she honestly thought Tony fell and once Vincent claimed he was thrown out by Marcellus, she believed him. Maybe Marcellus told her he fell when relating the story. Since she was his new bride, he might have been trying to hide at least some of his more violent traits initially. The reason why she wasn't very shocked when Vincent told her Marcellus threw him out the window is that, since that time, she saw Marcellus do a lot of things that were just as bad or worse, so hearing about her husband tossing some guy out a window was not shocking.

Typing this, I thought about a funnier possibility. When Vincent began alluding to her and Tony, she asked "Does it involve the F-word?". Maybe they actually had a sexual affair and Marcellus threw him out of a window for that. She was ready to admit to Vincent but once she heard about the foot massage, it humored her so much that she just feigned ignorance anyway.

That would be a funny possibility, but I highly doubt it lol.

Yeah, it likely didn't happen but that would be a funny twist,

No he didn't. He only touched Mia's hand, when he shook it.
