* A possible reason to put in the "Chris-R/Drug" subplot (apart from a possible source of the suicide gun): The whole theme of the "tragedy" is that "Everybody betray me!". Denny seemed to be the only guy who was on good terms with Johnny throughout but he needed to have something to betray Johnny with. Therefore; Every major character is a "betrayer"....Mark & Lisa and their affair....Claudette making Lisa the kind of girl she is as well as constantly mooching Johnny for money....Mike & Michelle inexplicably using Johnny's apartment for rich, chocolaty, comically goofy blowjobs....Michelle for simply being Lisa's best friend and she seemed fine with the affair before quickly wising up and realizing it was wrong....Everyone else aren't particularly close pals but Johnny at his end-point figured the the whole world was against him. Denny was the "innocent" one who loved Johnny unconditionally and whom Johnny treated like a son, he needed a vice to betray Johnny with....hence, using Johnny's money for drug buying and dealin'.

Added DiffLines:

** Lisa states at one point that Johnny wanted to adopt Denny, which would certainly imply that Denny has no other means of support.

* The film's title casts a shadow/reflection beneath it, similar to how Johnny's apartment has one room on top of another. This could be a hint that it's the upper bedroom that is the titular room.

** Johnny doesn't actually take Chris-R's gun. The gun Chris-R uses to threaten Denny is a later-model Smith & Wesson 5906[[note]]an airsoft replica, most likely[[/note]] - Johnny uses a Beretta 92FS Inox[[note]]the closeup of his suicide shot clearly shows the "Daisy Powerline Airstrike" marking on the "slide", which doesn't move when he fires.[[/note]] to off himself at the end.

* Greg Sestero's book Literature/TheDisasterArtist contains a piece of meta Fridge Brilliance. Tommy Wiseau wanted English to be the only language spoken in the movie to the point that when Greg said 'catch this' in French during one of the football scenes Tommy was livid and tackled him saying 'No French words dammit!'. The book doesn't go into any more detail but the 'no French words' mandate does help explain why the movie uses future-wife/husband instead of fiancé.

** Though considering how Johnny laughs at the drop of a hat throughout the movie, he could just be easily amused.

Added DiffLines:

** At the start of that scene, Mark is indicating that he's having girl trouble, and won't give Johnny a straight answer when he asks about it. Then he tries to change the subject to Johnny's work at the bank. So when Johnny asks about his "sex life" , he's actually trying to get back to the original topic.
