"Thurman says that, of all the scenes she was nervous about, it was dancing with John Travolta that intimidated her the most, “because I was so awkward and embarrassed and shy.” Travolta also remembers the scene: “Quentin recommended the Twist. And I said, ‘Well, Little Johnny Travolta won the Twist contest when I was eight years old, so I know every version. But you may add other novelty dances that were very special in the day.’ He said, ‘What do you mean?’ I said, ‘There was the Batman, the Hitchhiker, the Swim, as well as the Twist.’ And I showed them to him, and he loved them. I said, ‘I’ll teach Uma the steps, and when you want to see a different step, call it out.’"
