The ever-present soundtrack is the best part of this movie.

Proof that you can chi chat and not waste time doing it.

I stopped having chi chats because they always ended with martial arts battles.

Tommy Wiseau is a ruthlessly efficient shopper. In and out in less than 20 seconds!

I think he may have promised to put that dog in this film, and that's the only reason this scene exists.

casting couch regrets are a bitch.

The dog dictated this movie to Tommy, who interpreted and wrote it down.

IrishWhiskey
He slept with the director to get a part.

Since Tommy is facing the other way and nearly out the door, I have to assume that the "You're my favorite customer" remark is directed toward someone else.

I recently saw him at a screening of The Room, and he is exactly like this in real life.

Also, my friend who was involved in arranging the show had to entertain and mind him for four days. She saw him sniffing glue during that time, which is apparently his drug of choice and explains a LOT about the movie.
Valvados
Your use of the phrase "mind him" makes me think her job was more akin to a babysitter. I'm sure this is probably not far off from the truth.

Does anyone know, for sure, where Tommy is from? He sounds like he's from Hungary, and spent time in Ireland. His publicist insists he's American, as does he, but there was a minor mention of him "having spent some time in France".

Caminante Nocturno
He's from another planet. He's an alien.

B_Ko
I met him recently at a screening of this film to which i got front row seats. While on stage, i noticed a strange bulge in his pocket, so during the Q & A session i asked him what it was. He pulled it out and said it was a "secret", but my girlfriend identified it as a small vial of either nail polish remover or jewelry cleaner.

tl;dr: He's moving up in the huffing world. That said, five stars.

This movie! This whole movie is amazing beyond words.
oswaldtheluckyrabbit
Jesus! I'm amazed this scene wasn't on here yet.
revdrew
Just the flow of this entire scene is a wonder.
fluffy
I think it even goes nonlinear in places.

The solution to the question is obvious: Tommy Wiseau is not of this Earth, thus the awkwardness of his attempts at capturing human behavior.
Caminante Nocturno
I've had a long-standing theory that this movie is a student project made by aliens studying the human race.

oddeye
Or maybe it's a project made by humans to break the minds of captured aliens.

CornOnTheCabre
Even if this were a dupe, these would be stars 5-10
TeenerTot
Did he just cut in line?
cognitivedissonance
He paid in exact cash, new exactly what he needed, and pet the dog. Any retailer would allow the same, I know I would.


oddeye
If he paid in exact cash, why did he say "keep the change"? Unless it was to sound like a big shot, which he would never, ever do.

fluffy
I love the Netflix description of The Room: "Uninhibited by cinematic convention, this quirky cult favorite about lust and duplicity delivers nonstop laughs from beginning to end as the film's central character (writer-director Tommy Wiseau) discovers that his foxy fiancée, Lisa (Juliette Danielle), is bedding his best friend. Adding to the hilarity are Greg Sestero, who plays the backstabbing buddy, and Carolyn Minnott as Lisa's materialistic mom."
Dicknuts
I think the fact that this scene follows a looooooong drawn out sex scene is what blew my mind.

classic movies, indeed.

Did he give her a chain? Because he said she could keep it.

So I've just finished reading Greg Sestero's "The Disaster Artist" (if you haven't, do so. Better yet, get the audiobook. It's the funniest shit I've listened to in years.)

Anyway, I just wanted to add my two cents to the Wiseau origins debate. One popular theory proposed by u/ohbaimark last year suggests Wiseau could be Polish based on his family records in the US.

As a linguist of Polish extraction myself, I am now 99% sure that theory is correct. Sestero's book provides an enormous amount of Wiseau quotations and hints about his origins that, I believe, make a compelling case for Wiseau being from Poland.

The linguistic evidence:

The constant misuse and non-use of the definite and indefinite articles; confusing the present simple with the present continuous; dropping the auxiliary verb in questions. These are all extremely typical mistakes among Poles speaking English.
Answering the telephone by "I'm listening". That is exactly how most Poles answer the phone. (PL: "Słucham")
Onomatopoeia: "cheep cheep" is exactly how a Pole would beckon or taunt a bird. (PL: "cip cip")
"Leave [your stupid comment] in your pocket": a word-for-word translation of the slightly antiquated Polish expression "zostaw X w kieszeni", meaning "I don't care what you think about X".
Sestero says that the W in "Wiseau" is the first letter of Tommy's original last name. The only languages of the Eastern bloc that use the letter W in native words are German and Polish.

The historical evidence:

Tommy said his country was occupied by Soviet soldiers. In the Eastern bloc, the only countries with a permanent Soviet military presence after the war were Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia and Hungary.
Tommy left his country FOR Germany, so he can't be German. He also transited through Berlin - geographically speaking, the only point of origin of a trip to Strasbourg via Berlin that makes sense is Poland. Czechoslovakia would be a stretch. Hungary would be very improbable given how far south it is and that such a trip would require transiting through at least one more country.
Tommy said he used to go to a Catholic cathedral and that his city had been 79% destroyed in the war. None of the Catholic cathedrals in Czechoslovakia were in severely war-damaged cities. Poland, on the other hand, had at least a half-dozen cathedral cities that were basically razed during the war. If the figure of 79% is to be believed, Warsaw, Wrocław, Gdańsk and Poznań seem like the likeliest candidates.

There's also a small piece of cultural evidence: Wiseau's habit of drinking hot water. My Polish grandmother used to do the same. I'm guessing it was originally done a) to sanitize the water, and b) because of tea/coffee shortages during and after the war. For all I know though, this may have been a widespread thing in other countries as well.

So in conclusion, I'm pretty convinced that if Wiseau was indeed born on this planet, it may very well have been in Poland. Not that it matters of course, but it was fun to play detective. :-)
