Samuel Jackson recently stopped by BBC One's The Graham Norton Show and surprised the audience by reciting the "Ezekiel 25:17" speech from the classic Quentin Tarantino film 'Pulp Fiction.' The actor portrayed hitman Jules Winnfield in the 1994 film which co-starred Uma Thurman and John Travolta.

Below, check out the appearance below as well as the film's original scene featuring Jackson's soliloquy!

The 1994 American crime film directed by Quentin Tarantino, who also co-wrote the screenplay along with Roger Avary. The film was nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture; Tarantino and Avary won for Best Original Screenplay. It was also awarded the Palme d'Or at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival. A major critical and commercial success, it revitalized the career of its leading man, John Travolta, who received an Academy Award nomination, as did costars Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman.

Pulp Fiction connects the intersecting storylines of Los Angeles mobsters, fringe players, small-time criminals, and a mysterious briefcase. Considerable screen time is devoted to conversations and monologues that reveal the characters' senses of humor and perspectives on life. The film's title refers to the pulp magazines and hardboiled crime novels popular during the mid-20th century, known for their graphic violence and punchy dialogue. Pulp Fiction is self-referential from its opening moments, beginning with a title card that gives two dictionary definitions of "pulp." The plot, as in many of Tarantino's other works, is presented out of chronological sequence.

Considered a cultural watershed, Pulp Fiction's influence has been felt in several other media, and it is widely regarded as one of the greatest films of all time. In 2013, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
