The Room: “You Are Tearing Me Apart, Lisa!”

I hope this week has convinced you to check out The Amazing Cult Phenomenon That Is The Room, the worst movie ever made that’s also 100% worth watching. If you’re a Room fan already, you’ve probably subconsciously incorporated lines from The Room into your pop-culture-phrase vocabulary (I find myself saying “bye-bye” and “Oh, hi Mark” all the time, forgetting that most people probably don’t know what I’m talking about.)

But arguably the #1 quote from The Room is to be found in this final clip (for this week, anyway), in which Lisa torments Johnny until he utters the fateful line all Room fans know: “You are tearing me apart, Lisa!”

I cannot urge you enough to buy The Room on DVD. You’ll want to show it to everyone you know, and it will help you Understand Life.
