Added DiffLines:

* DyeingForYourArt: Creator/TomCruise insisted that he get to fly in a real F-14 as a condition to star in this movie. The Navy paired Cruise with a pilot named "Bozo" who made it his personal mission to make sure that Cruise puked on every flight. Cruise frequently tells a story of how, after a particularly hard maneuver, he bent down to vomit into a bag when Bozo threw the plane into a climb so fast that his head was pinned to the cockpit floor by the g-forces.
-->'''Tom Cruise:''' I'm trying to key the radio and trying to say "Bozo! Bozo!" and he goes: "They don't call me 'Bozo' for nothing!"
