Tom Waits voices the radio DJ heard in 'Mystery Train', a direct reference to his role as a DJ in Jarmusch's previous film 'Down by Law'.
Mitsuko thickly applies lipstick and kisses Jun, smearing it all over his mouth, mirroring a scene in 'Blue Velvet'.
The finger-snap lighter trick Mr. White does is taken from 'Mystery Train'.
