* AnachronicOrder: The even-numbered chapters cover Greg first meeting Tommy and their developing friendship, while the odd ones are about the production of the film five years later. [[HowWeGotHere The odd chapters eventually catch up to the first scene in the book at the restaurant.]]

* HumiliationConga: Greg started to hate both Tommy and the film when Tommy demanded he shave for the "Babyface" close up. Not only did Greg like his beard but he was also planning on shaving it off later so no one would recognize him from this film. He then nearly walked off the set when Tommy wanted him to imitate a chicken. He finally reached his wits end when he had to say "Leave your stupid comments in your pocket," the line that he hated the most that ended up being one of his character's most famous lines.

He finally reached his wits wit's end when he had during a struggle to say the line "Leave your stupid comments in your pocket," pocket!" The only way he was able to produce any emotion for the line incomprehensible, awkward sentence was by imagining that it ''really'' meant "Why are you doing this to me?" and that he was shouting it in Tommy's face. Ironically, this line, which Sestero hated more than any other in the most that script, ended up being one of his character's most famous lines.catchphrase.

* FunnyForeigner: Exaggerated and deconstructed in Tommy. It's obvious that his strangeness hinges on some kind of illness or trauma incidental to his foreignness. Other foreigners, like Greg's mom or Zsolt the Hungarian-sounding guy, are just as baffled by Tommy as anyone else.

** What Tommy was up to during the nine months he claimed to be in London on "business". It's extremely obvious from his many slip-ups over the phone and afterward that he was actually in San Francisco rather than London, and he returns with the completed script of ''The Room'', a new look, and a new zest for life. However, his contact with Greg during this time was very suicidal in tone, indicating that there was a lot more going on than just self-improvement.

* UnsportsmanlikeGloating: Tommy did this over Greg after "winning" the Bay To Breakers race (he was among the first 10,000 people to cross the finish line and would be in the newspaper as a result). The funny thing is that Tommy ''unknowingly'' entered Greg into the race and with all that was said and done, Greg didn't care that he "lost" and actually enjoyed himself by walking in the race and going to a race-side house party while participating.

* InsistentTerminology: Beyond "Future Wife", Tommy also refers to money as "Candy", refers to his scalp as a "nest" and sees goofing off as "Mickey Mouse Stuff."

**
Beyond "Future Wife", Tommy also refers to money as "Candy", refers to his scalp as a "nest" and sees goofing off as "Mickey Mouse Stuff.""
** Some of Tommy's insistent terminology seems to rub off on Greg; his narrative ''also'' only says "future wife" instead of "fiancee", and refers to the actor Dan as "Don".

** Chapter Eight (which concerns Greg landing the ''Retro Puppet Master'' role) ends with Greg, while in Romania, receiving a supportive telegram from Tommy on Christmas. While at first this seems like a heart warming moment, as [[WhamLine the last line]] of the chapter makes clear:
-->[[ParanoiaFuel I still don't know how Tommy found me.]][[note]]Greg ''never'' told Tommy where he was going to film.[[/note]]
