In Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill
"Beatrix Kiddo" is the name
of the kick-ass kung-fu samurai superhero maternal heroine bride (whew).
Of course, Tarantino goes out of his way to keep the audience from actually hearing the name, bleeping
it out so that we are left thinking that "Kiddo" is nothing more than an affectionate
nickname Bill has for the Bride. Not until the last
chapter of Vol. 2 do we actually hear the name; immediately thereafter comes
the shortest, most inane scene of both movies, where a kindergarten teacher is taking roll call, and an
adult Uma Thurman answers to the name "Beatrix Kiddo."
