* VoodooShark: Think of anything in "The Room" that doesn't make sense. The dialogue, the acting, the fact they green-screened a San Francisco skyline on a rooftop set '''in''' San Francisco. All of it will make '''less''' sense after hearing Sestero describe Tommy's explanation for it.
** Like the breast cancer reveal, which is never brought up again after its mentioned. "Oh that's the twist, hah?"
** Or green-screening in the skyline. "I don't want this to be no Minnie Mouse production. I want it look professional."

* {{Irony}}: Tommy during production is a [[BadBadActing Bad Bad Actor]] who blows countless takes and shouts for lines ''he wrote''. When he actually prepares beforehand for the rooftop party scene, he's in the midst of a nasty cold and on a cocktail of Nyquil and Red Bull making him prone to crashing.

* TechMarchesOn: Why even big-name studios never purchase their equipment, which Tommy fails to realize. What is cutting edge now will be obsolete in a year.

* [[invoked]]TroubledProduction: The Film.

to:

* [[invoked]]TroubledProduction: The Film.book and ''The Room'''s reputation as a SoBadItsGood film owe their existence to how troubled the production was. Between all of Wiseasu's constant penny-pinching and PrimaDonnaDirector tendencies, Greg considers it a testament to the determination of the cast and crew that the film ended up finished at all.

** Another with Tommy's fake review blurbs; One of his made up "Movie Review publication" sources is ''Series/BeverlyHills90210''....which was a television drama series and not a movie/entertainment publication.

** Tommy submits his film to Paramount, hoping to get them as the distributor. While Greg notes it usually takes about two weeks to get a reply, the film is rejected within ''twenty-four hours''.

** It's strongly hinted that Tommy wrote the quotes from reviews in all the promotional material for ''The Room'', which are from nonexistent sources such as "Entertainment Today" and "Series/BeverlyHills90210" and say the same thing: "Tommy Wiseau is the new Tennesse [sic] Williams, a true ragin' Cajun."

* BerserkButton: Aside from the well-known prohibition against asking questions about Tommy's origins or his personal fortune, you do not leave the set while shooting, you do not steal focus in the scene, and you do ''not'' call Tommy a "pansy."

** On the other hand, other scenes become much funnier. Knowing that "It's not true, it's bullshit, I did not hit her, I did naaaaaat... Oh hai Mark," took thirty-two takes over three hours makes it somehow more hilarious.
