Instead, the bag she gives Melanie contains only ,000 and the rest is left behind in the dressing room for Max to pick up.
Jackie then feigns despair as she calls Nicolette and Dargus out from hiding, claiming Melanie took all the money and ran.
Jackie suddenly yells that Ordell has a gun, and Nicolette jumps from a hiding place and shoots him dead.
Having had her charges dropped for cooperating with the ATF, and now in possession of the money as well as Ordell's car, Jackie decides to leave the country and travel to Madrid, Spain.
Jackie Brown alludes to Grier's career in many ways.
Having received payment from Ordell, Max picks up Jackie from the jail and begins to develop an attraction to her.
In the Del Amo Mall on the day of the transfer, Jackie enters a dressing room to try on a new suit.
She has told Ordell that she will swap bags there with Melanie, supposedly passing off the 0,000 under the nose of Nicolette, who has been told that the exchange is to take place in the food court.
It is the first (and to date, only) film that Tarantino has adapted from a previous work, and stars Pam Grier in the title role.
The film pays homage to 1970s blaxploitation films, particularly the films Coffy (1973) and Foxy Brown (1974), both of which also starred Grier in the title roles.
