Multi-faceted character portrayed by Uma Thurman in the 1994 Tarantino film, Pulp Fiction. Is married to Marsellus Wallace, who is also known as the Big Man. Known in one of the biggest scenes in movie history, where John Travolta (Vincent) and Uma Thurman (Mia) twist for a contest at Jackrabbit Slim's. Shortly thereafter, Mia experiences a drug overdose and after an intense scene at a drug dealer's house(Lance), is stabbed in the heart with an adrenaline shot.
MIA WALLACE: Don't you hate that?
VINCENT VEGA: What?
MIA: Uncomfortable silences. Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullshit in order to be comfortable?
VINCENT: I don't know. That's a good question.
MIA: That's when you know you've found somebody special. When you can just shut the fuck up for a minute and comfortably enjoy the silence.
LANCE: You're going to have to give her an injecion of adrenaline directly to her heart. But she's got, uh, breastplates... (taps Mia's chest). You've gotta pierce through that. So what you have to do is, you have to bring the needle down in a stabbing motion. (demonstrates three times)
VINCENT: I-I gotta stab her three times?
LANCE: No, you don't gotta fucking stab her three times! You gotta stab her once, but it's gotta be hard enough to break through her breastplate into her heart, and then once you do that, you press down on the plunger.
VINCENT: What happens after that?
LANCE: I'm kinda curious about that myself.
