Butch egged on Zed to grab his handgun. During this time, Marsellus frees himself and picks up Maynard's shotgun.

He vowed that Zed's suffering had only begun, promising that he would call his crew in to torture Zed with a pair of pliars and a blowtorch. Since Butch saved him, he called off his feud with him, provided he left Los Angeles forever and that he would keep what happened there between the three of them.

Suddenly the pawn shop owner, Maynard, holds Butch at gun point with his shotgun, forcing him to walk up to the front desk with his hands behind his head, before knocking him out with the stock of the shotgun while Marsellus passes out from the fight with Butch. Meanwhile, Maynard calls Zed and says that, "a spider just caught a couple of flies".
