    [Greg grabs Tommy off the set] 

    Greg Sestero : Come here. Fuck, man.

    Greg Sestero : Yeah, you're hard, but it's not just that. What's going on with you?

    Tommy Wiseau : Stanley Kubrick, he nice to actors? Alfred Hitchcock? Let me tell you something, Greg. He do this movie, Birds.

    Greg Sestero : Yeah, I'm aware of The Birds.

    Tommy Wiseau : On this movie, he terrify actors. He locked them in room, he throw, he throw birds at them. Real birds! Nasty stuff. The actors, they crack every day. But this movie win every award. Is Mr. Hitchcock bad man? No. He great director!

    Greg Sestero : Yeah, but he was an asshole, and I bet he didn't direct with his fucking dick out.

    Tommy Wiseau : Oh, really? Well, maybe we check the record, okay? And you know, for your information, where director come from, dictator. Rest my case.

    Tommy Wiseau : I treat them how I treat them! If anyone needs to be upset here, it's me, quite frankly.

    Greg Sestero : Wait - why?

    Tommy Wiseau : I give them job, I give them salary. I already spent five million dollars on this movie, Greg.

    Greg Sestero : My God, are you kidding me? Five million dollars...?

    Tommy Wiseau : And they are not grateful! Nobody respect my vision! I know what they say, Greg. I hear them. Nobody trust me. Not even you, Greg!

    Greg Sestero : That's... what are you...

    Tommy Wiseau : Oh, see? You don't even trust me!

    [Tommy proceeds to walk back into the set] 

  • Justin Hammer : Come here, Tommy. Just because you want it doesn't mean it can happen. Okay? It's one in a million, even if you have Brando's talent. It's not going to happen for you, okay? But now you have to go.

    Tommy Wiseau : [upset]  But, maybe I... maybe.

    Justin Hammer : I'm not saying "maybe", I'm saying "not in a million years"!

    Tommy Wiseau : But after that?

    Justin Hammer : And *not* after!

  • Greg Sestero : You're really gonna make this thing?

    Tommy Wiseau : No, Greg. We are going to do it. Together.

    Greg Sestero : You will know our names!

  • Henry : [Post-Credits scene]  Hey, how are you doing?

    Tommy Wiseau : Fine. Yeah, I'm fine. Why you ask?

    Henry : Why are you standing against a wall?

    Henry : Why you so lonely? Tell me.

    Tommy Wiseau : What? I'm just standing here alone. Don't mean I'm lonely.

    Henry : You need help, I see it.

    Tommy Wiseau : It's not pity party, it's just party.

    Henry : You go with me?

    Tommy Wiseau : Go where?

    Henry : To my house.

    Tommy Wiseau : [pause]  I'm not going anywhere with you.

    Henry : You think you have long hair, you own the world? Is that the idea, huh?

    Tommy Wiseau : I stop you. I stop you right there. What is this accent? It sound familiar. You from New Orleans?

    Henry : Yeah, so what?

    Tommy Wiseau : What part?

    Henry : Chalmett.

    Tommy Wiseau : I love New Orleans.

    Henry : You know where Chalmett?

    Tommy Wiseau : Yeah.

    Henry : Okay, cool. You want a drink or something?

    Tommy Wiseau : No. I'm not thirsty either. I just want to stand here.

    Henry : What's your name? Tommy, right?

    Henry : [sighs]  People are very strange these days! Oh, hi Betty.

    Tommy Wiseau : My god... Who are these friends Greg has?

  • Greg Sestero : Tommy, that felt fucking amazing, man!

    Tommy Wiseau : There you go, now you're acting, Greg.

  • [Tommy walks out of the screening of The Room, disappointed that people are laughing at his movie. Greg follows him] 

    Greg Sestero : Hey, Tommy.

    Tommy Wiseau : They hate it.

    Greg Sestero : No, no, they're, they're just laughing.

    Tommy Wiseau : They're laughing. Laughing at me. Maybe it's true, you know. Maybe everybody right. Maybe, maybe I just big joke, ha, ha.

    Greg Sestero : No, Tommy...

    Tommy Wiseau : I try to open my heart, show them my soul, and they just hate me. Even you hate me, Greg.

    Greg Sestero : Hey, hey, hey. Listen to me, all right? All right, that thing out there, that's your movie. You made that. All right, like you said, you did that all by yourself. You know how special that is?

    [Tommy groans] 

    Greg Sestero : Hey, it's fucking incredible. How many people can say they have done something like that?

    Tommy Wiseau : I don't know, one thousand?

    Greg Sestero : All right, and yeah. Maybe it didn't turn out exactly as you hoped, but just listen for a second.

    Tommy Wiseau : Sound like they're laughing.

    Greg Sestero : All right, come here.

    [Tommy and Greg return to the theatre, to see the audience still laughing. We see the scene where Johnny kills himself on screen] 

    Greg Sestero : Look how much fun they're having. They fucking love it, man! How often do you think Hitchcock got a response like this?

    Tommy Wiseau : Never.

    Tommy Wiseau : [after Johnny throws the television on screen]  Greg, why you help me?

    Greg Sestero : 'Cause we're friends.

  • Tommy Wiseau : [Throwing newspapers and a trash can in a fit of rage]  Everybody betray me!

    [Kicks the newspaper stand] 

    Tommy Wiseau : Ow, my foot.

  • Juliette : [as Tommy is dry-humping her navel while filming the sex scene]  I think you're aiming a little bit high.

    Tommy Wiseau : I aim where I aim, just do the scene.

  • Tommy Wiseau : [while auditioning]  The rules to the class are simple.

  • Tommy Wiseau : [after driving around aimlessly]  Sorry I'm late, traffic was crazy!

  • [Tommy prepares to film his sex scene, and he is walking in the set completely naked] 

    Tommy Wiseau : Okay, okay, we go.

    Greg Sestero : Tommy, Tommy, this is not necessary.

    Tommy Wiseau : No. It very necessary. I need to show my ass to sell this movie, okay?

    Greg Sestero : That's not true.

    Sandy Schklair : At least we have a closed set.

    Tommy Wiseau : Not closed set. Open set. Life is not closed set! I want everyone to see!

    Tommy Wiseau : You, especially.

    Greg Sestero : W-what? Why? What?

    Tommy Wiseau : Brad Pitt do this in the Legend of the Fall.
