** 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 [[Creator/TennesseeWilliams Tennesse [sic] Williams]], a true ragin' Cajun."

* ArgumentumAdNauseam: Every attempt to change Tommy's mind about a course of action is met with some variation of "I disagree with that" until the speaker gives up arguing in frustration (or quits the production altogether).

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Greg saw ''Film/TheTalentedMrRipley'' and chillingly realized it was disturbingly applicable to his relationship with Tommy Wiseau. ''Tommy'' saw ''The Talented Mr. Ripley'' and thought "I can make a better movie than that".

** Greg's mother said "no sex, Tommy", and his awkward response was "Well, we all do.", not getting the implication that she was referring to her son.

Added DiffLines:

** Played straight by Tommy during his confrontation with Greg over him talking to his hippie friend about him.

Added DiffLines:

** Also done to a lesser extent with how Tommy tapes all the phone conversations made at his apartment, including Greg's. Greg only finds out by chance and confronts him about it. Tommy even uses the same tape recorder himself in the film itself while playing Johnny!

* OneOfTheKids: Yet another trope Tommy unsuccessfully aspires to. Mark notes that he's much more comfortable around actors in their teens and twenties than people (presumably) his own age. His habit of underestimating Greg's age only reinforces this.

* ExtremeDoormat: Greg. Even considering the fact that Tommy never backs down no matter what, Greg is pretty submissive to him. By the time the timeline reaches actual production of ''The Room'', he offers absolutely no resistance to anything Tommy does or plans to do.

* EasilyForgiven: The original actor cast for the role of Mark doesn't hold any hard feelings towards Greg for being complicit in screwing him out of the role. In fact, he takes it rather well and prophetically predicts they'll all be laughing about his someday.

** Really the film production is one EpicFail after another. Tommy routinely makes production decisions that defy not only basic film production procedures, but basic logic.
** Tommy submits his film to Creator/{{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''.

** 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.

* {{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.

* 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.
