* Why does Johnny need audio evidence that Lisa and Mark are having an affair? They were ''pawing each other'' in front of ''birthday party guests'', and Mark ''flat out'' tells him that she wouldn't need him if Johnny were satisfying her sexually. Johnny and Lisa aren't married, so who needs proof, and for what?

* Early in the film, Lisa calls Mark on the phone. He tries to brush her off by saying he's busy, even though it looks like he's just sitting in his car. So what's he doing in his car that's so important? Judging by his pot smoking scene later in the film, he's waiting for his dealer. Alternately, if you accept Greg Sestero's personal theory that Mark is an undercover cop, maybe he's on a stakeout.

** I understood it to refer to the bedroom, since that is where Johnny and Lisa have sex, where Lisa cheats with Mark (the stair scene notwithstanding), where Johnny confirms that Lisa is having an affair, where his angry downward spiral begins, and the room he kills himself in. The bedroom is the center of the plot.

*** Although the gun may have changed between scenes, Tommy has said that they are the same gun in the story.

* 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'.

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

to:

* 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.
