Movie/TV Quote

"You're tearing me apart, Lisa!"


The Room (2003)


No piece of outsider art has had a bigger impact on film than Tommy Wiseau's masterpiece, which began as the fever dream of an obscure, fame-obsessed, inexplicably wealthy European of uncertain provenance and became the Rocky Horror Picture Show of the 21st century. No one will tell you the script is great, but in its complete lack of regard for narrative structure, common sense, and how humans interact, it achieves a brilliance that continues to draw audiences to theaters, footballs in tow. Just take a look at the few lines of dialogue surrounding Wiseau-as-Johnny's most famous line, which is cribbed from James Dean's Rebel Without a Cause:


JOHNNY: Why Lisa, why Lisa? Please talk to me, please! You're part of my life, you are everything, I could not go on without you, Lisa.


LISA: You're scaring me. [Stands up.]


JOHNNY: You're lying, I never hit you. You are tearing me apart, Lisa!


LISA: Why are you so hysterical?


JOHNNY: Do you understand life? Do you?


LISA: [Walking away] Don't worry about it. Everything will be alright.

One thing's for sure: Neither Lisa nor Johnny understands life, but in their ignorance they have stumbled on an eternal truth.
