Karen Wong, NOT Yuki Yubari, in Kill Bill Vol. 2
- I reread the draft script and am now certain that it is Karen Wong in
the TV Spot. In the script, the Bride says this to Karen: "I'm the
deadliest woman in the world, but right now I'm scared shitless for
my baby." The first part of this line is also heard in the TV Spot.
Here's the full story. Lisa and Karen Wong are two Korean women in
the LA underworld. Quentin's script mostly focuses on Karen of the
Wong Sisters. We are told the story through a flashback in the last
chapter of Kill Bill where the Bride has a conversation with Bill.
Apparently, Bill ordered the Bride to LA to assassinate Lisa Wong
four years ago. However she was spotted and once Lisa got wind of
the coming Bride, she sent her own sister, Karen, to deal with the

As she talks, she accidentally drops the blue strip,
bends down to pick it up...
A SHOTGUN BLAST BLOWS A HOLE in the door, right where

Karen kicks open the door, Pump Action Shotgun in hand.
The Bride's on her back, on the floor below her.
Karen aims the shotgun down at her.
With her foot, The Bride kicks the front door.

The Bride is a sitting duck. There's nothing she can do
except wait to get shot.
So you came here to kill Lisa Wong,
huh? Well that's my sister, bitch.
I'm Karen Wong, and I've come here
to kill you.
She raises the shotgun, and takes aim at The Bride...
Wait a second!

On that table is the home pregnancy

the strip that says I'm pregnant.
I'm telling you the truth, I don't

sister. I just want to go home.

The Bride complies. Karen bends down and picks the
the floor. Then takes the package it came in and reads
directions on the box.
Blue means pregnant.
I'll read it myself, thank you.
It is blue, Karen's starting to believe her.
Okay, say I were to believe you,
Just go home. I'll do the same.
Karen does...She starts backing out of the
leaves, she says;
You fucked with the Wong sisters.
BACK ON THE PORCH
Facing Karen Wong, was the most
frightening moment I have ever
experienced. And that includes
three years with that evil bastard
Pai Mei. Before that strip turned
blue, I was a woman, I was your
woman. I was a killer, who killed
for you. Before that strip turned
blue, I would have jumped a
motorcycle on to a speeding train
...for you. But once that strip
turned blue, I could no longer do
any of those things. Not anymore.
Because now I was a mother. A
mother who only had one thought on
her mind. Please don't harm my
baby. Can you understand that?
