Did you know?
In the documentary, "A Man Can Do That," Quentin Tarantino notes that Budd in Kill Bill was a nod to director Budd Boetticher. Budd's sense of morals is certainly an homage to those of Randolph Scott's in Boetticher's 'Ranown' films.

Esteban Vihaio mentions to the Bride about following the "road to Salinas" to track down Bill. Legendary American 1950s actor James Dean died after crashing his sports car while attempting to cross an intersection leading to Salinas, California on September 31, 1955.

During the scene in which Bill shoots the bride with truth serum and then interrogates her, he calls her a "natural born killer" and also a "renegade killer bee," which references projects of the Wu-Tang Clan a member of which (RZA) wrote much of the original music for the two films.

When Beatrix is on the patio, after being "shot" by her daughter, she is sitting on the ground hugging her, the sword on her back disappears and reappears numerous times between shots.

When The Bride is stuck in the coffin, and starts punching it, the first two times you can see cracks all around the place she hit, then when it comes back for the third and fourth times, all the cracks are gone.

During Elle and the Bride's fight scene (in Budd's trailer), the Bride throws a can of tobacco spit in Elle's face. After Elle says "Gross", the spit is not on her face when the camera returns to Elle.

Why do they show the classroom scene after Elle reveals the Bride's name?
It's just a humorous scene to again tell the audience (who has been waiting for two volumes) what the Bride's name is in case you may have missed Elle saying it. This is also a nod to the fans of Vol. 1 who would recognize why O-Ren said "Silly rabbit.", which is followed immediately by The Bride saying: "Trix are for..." then finished by O-Ren: "" because The Bride's name is Beatrix Kiddo. It could also be why Bill consistently calls her "kiddo".
What is wrong with the lips of the woman that Esteban calls over?
Here is some dialogue to help you out: Esteban: Bill shot you in the head, no? Kiddo: Yes he did. Esteban: I would have been much nicer...I would have just cut your face. Notice how he makes a vertical motion with his finger up and down his lips when he says this. This is further indication that Esteban cut her face. Esteban likely did it because the woman was disloyal to him, and he wanted to make an example of her while also destroying any self-confidence she had.
If Budd was willing to let the Bride kill him, why didn't he?
Budd tells Bill: "If she wants to fight with me, all she's gotta do is come down to the club and start some shit, and we'll be in a fight." When Bill says "...unless you accept my assistance, I have no doubt she will succeed [in killing you]," Budd later replies with: "That woman deserves her revenge. And we deserve to die. But, then again, so does she." It was a matter of karma and honor. They had all done horrible things to people and to each other, The Bride included. Budd obviously is not proud of his past, especially his part in what he did to The Bride. He refused Bill's help so it would be a fair fight; one on one. However, this doesn't mean he would simply drop to his knees and let The Bride kill him. His philosophy was "If she kills me, so be it, but I won't go down without a fight." He also felt she deserved to suffer for what she did to Bill, but wasn't completely heartless in his act. He buries her alive, but instead of just doing that, he gives her a flashlight to be buried with. Knowing if anyone could possibly escape that scenario it was her, giving her the flashlight was Budd's sign of respect.
