i did not hit her

“I did not hit her, it’s not true! It’s bullshit! I did not hit her! I did not! Oh hai, Mark.”

From: The Room (2003)

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Johnny

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from “the Citizen Kane of bad movies,” The Room. Written, directed and produced by the enigmatic Tommy Wiseau, the movie is about a love triangle between Johnny (played by Tommy Wiseau himself), his fiancee Lisa and his best friend, Mark. At least, that’s what I’ve been able to piece together as The Room is generally a mess of unrelated stories and plot points, some of which are never addressed or discussed in the film.

The quote comes from the infamous rooftop scene where Johnny bursts in, upset because, apparently, Lisa claims that he hit her. However, his anger soon vaporizes to greet Mark who… likes to hang out on the roof, I guess?

Geek wisdom: No matter how upset or mad you are, always try to make an effort to be cordial to the people around you. Even if you are upset about something, you have no right to take it out on anyone else. Even Johnny knew that and made sure to greet Mark once he saw him.
