The "Top Gun" speech in Sleep with Me actually misquotes the real Top Gun script for intended humorous effect. Although Avary's speech claims that Iceman (Val Kilmer) says, "You can ride my tail any time" to Maverick (Tom Cruise) at the end of Top Gun, the character actually tells Maverick, "You can be my wingman any time."
Quentin Tarantino has a small role in this movie. Eric Stoltz, the main actor, also had the main role in Killing Zoe, which Tarantino produced. On top of that, Stoltz also was an actor in Pulp Fiction.
