Johnny is a successful banker who lives happily in a San Francisco townhouse with his fiancée, Lisa. One day, inexplicably, she gets bored with him and decides to seduce his best friend, Mark. From there, nothing will be the same again.
Mark (Greg Sestero) is named after Matt Damon. According to Sestero, Tommy Wiseau misheard the actor's name despite his obsession with the actor. Coincidently, there is a notable actor/producer named Mark Damon - whether Wiseau confused the two remains to be seen.
Hi, babe. I have something for you.
Lisa: What is it?
Johnny: Just a little something.
Lisa: Johnny, it's beautiful. Thank you. Can I try it on now?
Johnny: Sure, it's yours.
Lisa: Wait right here.
Lisa: I'll try it on right now.
Running up the steps, Mark says "Really, that's great." without his lips moving.

In the DVD and theatrical versions of the film, when Johnny throws his TV out the window in the climax, it is obvious that it is daytime when the TV smashes to the ground despite taking place at night. However, in the Blu-ray transfer, a partial "day for night" filter was added.
