Every Single Time Samuel L. Jackson Has Said 'Motherfucker' on Film

Everyone knows Samuel L. Jackson loves to say "motherfucker" in his films. It's a beautiful, glorious word when it rolls off his tongue. Jackson saying "motherfucker" is like Laurence Olivier reciting lines from Hamlet. It's like the sound of unicorns tickling puppies and then calling them "motherfuckers."


Thanks to a couple of mad genius bloggers, we now have the definitive Samuel L. Jackson "motherfucker" record. Oliver Noble and Ben Craw at The Huffington Post put together this incredibly beautiful supercut of all "motherfuckers" Jackson has uttered in his movies over the years along with this list documenting each one:

School Daze" (1988): 1 motherfucker

"Jungle Fever" (1991): 7 motherfuckers

"Strictly Business" (1991): 1 mother- what

"Menace II Society" (1993): 5 motherfuckers

"True Romance" (1993): 4 motherfuckers

"Fresh" (1994): 1 motherfucker

"Pulp Fiction" (1994): 26 motherfuckers

"Die Hard: With a Vengeance" (1995): 7 motherfuckers

"Hard Eight" (1996): 1 motherfucker

"The Great White Hype" (1996): 2 motherfuckers

"The Long Kiss Goodnight" (1996): 3 motherfuckers

"Django Unchained" (2012): 4 motherfuckers

"Oldboy" (2013): 8 motherfuckers

"RoboCop" (2014): 1 motherfucker (bleeped)

Do you how scientists are awestruck by the beauty of something like images from the Hubble telescope? That is how I feel looking at this list of "motherfuckers." It's a thing of beauty to me and I wish to hold it in my heart so it can beat with the list as one.

['Jackie Brown'] leads the Samuel L. Jackson-saying motherf*cker count, which is not surprising, but almost more impressive is his work in 'True Romance,' where he managed to squeeze four motherf*ckers into about 90 seconds of screen time.

It is also interesting to note Jackson only said "motherfucker" three times in Snakes on a Plane. I would have thought that would have been loaded with way more motherfuckers than that.
