An Arizona man stopped a couple from robbing a local coffee shop by impersonating Samuel L. Jackson’s character in “Pulp Fiction.”

“He just started quoting lines from ‘Pulp Fiction’,” restaurant manager Ted Barkins said of Paul Horner, according to Funjak.

“The robbers kind of went berserk and then they just left.”

In Quentin Tarantino‘s 1994 masterpiece, Jackson’s Julius Winnfield uses threatening, yet inspiring rhetoric to stop a couple from robbing a diner.

One of the most memorable parts of the scene is when Winnfield reveals his wallet, which says “bad motherf*cker” on it.

Because the movie achieved such immense success, wallets with these words engraved on them became available for purchase.

“It was really lucky that I had my wallet with me that said ‘bad motherf*cker’ on it,” Horner said. “The robbers came around demanding everybody’s wallet and I just held it up, you know like how Samuel L. Jackson did in ‘Pulp Fiction.’”

Regular customer of the Jonestown shop Susan Litchfield initially thought Horner would be injured or killed when he stood up to the robbers.

“The robbers asked Mr. Horner what was in his hand,” she said. “He told them it was his wallet that said ‘bad motherf*cker’ on it. I’ve never seen the movie so I didn’t know what he was talking about. I just thought he was some crazy white guy with a death wish.”

The couple in the film, played by Tim Roth and Amanda Plummer, also attempt to rob the diner by taking the customers’ wallets.

“After I said the comment about my wallet, the robbers started freaking out,” Horner continued. “So then, in my best tough black guy voice I said to them: ‘Normally, both your asses would be dead as f*cking friend chicken, but you happen to pull this sh*t while I’m in a transitional period so I don’t wanna kill you. I wanna help you.’ “

Horner said that the noticeably confused and intimidated robbers then just looked at each other and ran out of the restaurant.

“I knew my vast knowledge of ‘Pulp Fiction’ would pay off for me one day,” he said.

We’re not sure if this actually happened or not, but if it did, it’s one hell of a story. Maybe they should use it for a movie! Oh, wait…
