Quentin Tarantino:
Your first Hollywood job was as PA on a Dolph Lundgren workout video, Maximum Potential. Was it a good experience? – Robin Brekke

Yeah, it was a ball! It was me and Roger Avary working on it, and John Langley and Malcolm Barbour who created the show Cops, just before they created it. John Langley used to come into Video Archives, so he knew us and thought, “Oh, I’m going to give those guys a shot.” It was really fun, though the cinematographer was really, really mean to me. But I remember going down to Venice Beach and there’s this grassy area where Dolph Lundgren is going to do his exercises, with people behind him following along. And there’s just an acre of dogshit, all over this small area of grass. So me and Roger have to clean it up, alright? We’re scooping up the dogshit and the crew is fucking around, and me and Roger are going, “This is literally a shitty job.” We start talking about how we want to be directors one day and I go, “The day when I’m a director, man, I’m gonna be out there with the PAs, scooping up the dogshit right with them!” Cut to Pulp Fiction. We’re out there shooting something and sure enough, there’s a bunch of grass and some dogshit on it. And they grab a couple of PAs and go, “Clean that shit up.” And I go [sighs], “Okaaaay...” I joined them, I grabbed a shovel and I did a couple of scoops. I had a debt to pay.
