|00:02:04||People always ask me
if I know Tyler Durden.|
|00:02:10||This is it. Ground zero.|
|00:02:12||Do you have a speech for the occasion?|
|00:02:16||With a gun barrel between your teeth,
you speak only in vowels.|
|00:02:19||I can't think of anything.|
|00:02:22||For a second, I forget about
Tyler's controlled demolition thing|
|00:02:26||and I wonder how clean that gun is.|
|00:02:28||It's getting exciting now.|
|00:02:30||That old thing,
how you always hurt the one you love.|
|00:02:33||Well, it works both ways.|
|00:02:35||We have front-row seats
for this theater of mass destruction.|
|00:02:40||The Demolitions Committee
of Project Mayhem|
|00:02:43||wrapped the foundations
of 12 buildings with explosives.|
|00:02:47||In two minutes,
primary charges will blow base charges|
|00:02:50||and a few blocks will be reduced
to smouldering rubble.|
|00:02:54||I know this because Tyler knows this.|
|00:02:57||Two and a half.
Think of everything we've accomplished.|
|00:03:00||Suddenly I realize that all of this,
the gun, the bombs, the revolution,|
|00:03:06||has got something to do
with a girl named Marla Singer.|
|00:03:12||Bob. Bob had bitch tits.|
|00:03:14||This was a support group
for men with testicular cancer.|
|00:03:18||The big moosie slobbering all over me,
that was Bob.|
|00:03:22||We're still men.|
|00:03:24||Yes, we're men.|
|00:03:26||Men is what we are.|
|00:03:28||Bob had had his testicles removed.
Then hormone therapy.|
|00:03:32||He developed bitch tits because
his testosterone was too high|
|00:03:36||and his body upped the oestrogen.|
|00:03:38||- That was where I fit...
- They'll have to drain my pecs again.|
|00:03:42||..between those huge sweating tits|
|00:03:44||that hung enormous,
the way you'd think of God's as big.|
|00:03:49||OK, you cry now.|
|00:03:51||No, wait. Back up. Let me start earlier.|
|00:03:55||For six months, I couldn't sleep.|
|00:03:58||I couldn't sleep.|
|00:04:00||With insomnia, nothing's real.|
|00:04:03||Everything's far away.|
|00:04:06||Everything's a copy of a copy|
|00:04:08||of a copy.|
|00:04:12||When deep space exploration ramps up,
it'll be the corporations that name everything.|
|00:04:18||The IBM Stellar Sphere.|
|00:04:20||The Microsoft Galaxy.|
|00:04:23||The Planet Starbucks.|
|00:04:25||I need you out of town this week
to cover some red flags.|
|00:04:28||It must have been Tuesday.
He had on his cornflower blue tie.|
|00:04:32||You want me to deprioritize my reports
until you advise of a status upgrade?|
|00:04:37||Prioritize these. Here's your flight coupons.
Call me if there's any snags.|
|00:04:41||He was full of pep.
Must have had his grande latte enema.|
|00:04:46||Like so many others, I had become
a slave to the Ikea nesting instinct.|
|00:04:52||Yes. I'd like to order|
|00:04:54||the Erika Pekkari dust ruffles.|
|00:04:56||- Please hold.
- Anything clever,|
|00:04:59||like a coffee table in the shape of a yin-yang,
I had to have it.|
|00:05:04||The Klipsk personal office unit.|
|00:05:07||The Hovetrekke home exerbike.|
|00:05:09||Or the Ohamshab sofa
with the Strinne green stripe pattern.|
|00:05:13||Even the Ryslampa wire lamps of
environmentally-friendly unbleached paper.|
|00:05:18||I'd flip through catalogues and wonder|
|00:05:21||"What kind of dining set
defines me as a person?"|
|00:05:24||I had it all. Even the glass dishes
with tiny bubbles and imperfections,|
|00:05:29||proof that they were crafted by the honest,
hard-working, indigenous peoples of...|
|00:05:34||- Please hold.
|00:05:38||We used to read pornography.|
|00:05:40||Now it was the Horchow collection.|
|00:05:43||- No. You can't die of insomnia.
- What about narcolepsy?|
|00:05:47||I nod off, I wake up in strange places.|
|00:05:49||I have no idea how I got there.|
|00:05:51||- You need to lighten up.
- Can you please just give me something?|
|00:05:55||Red and blue Tuinals, lipstick-red Seconals...|
|00:05:59||No. You need healthy, natural sleep.|
|00:06:03||Chew some valerian root
and get more exercise.|
|00:06:09||Hey, come on.|
|00:06:11||- I'm in pain.
- You wanna see pain?|
|00:06:13||Swing by First Methodist, Tuesday nights.|
|00:06:16||See the guys with testicular cancer.|
|00:06:37||I always wanted three kids...
two boys and a girl.|
|00:06:40||Mindy wanted two girls and a boy.|
|00:06:44||We never could agree on anything.|
|00:06:47||Well, I... She...|
|00:06:49||She had her first child last week.|
|00:06:54||With... With her... With her new husband.|
|00:07:01||Thank God, you know...|
|00:07:04||I'm glad for her.|
|00:07:13||Everyone, let's thank Thomas
for sharing himself with us.|
|00:07:17||Thank you, Thomas.|
|00:07:19||I look around this room,
and I see a lot of courage.|
|00:07:23||And that gives me strength.|
|00:07:25||We give each other strength.|
|00:07:27||It's time for the one-on-ones.|
|00:07:30||So let's all of us follow Thomas's example
and really open ourselves up.|
|00:07:35||Could you find a partner?|
|00:07:39||And this is how I met the big moosie.|
|00:07:44||His eyes already shrink-wrapped in tears.|
|00:07:50||Knees together. Those awkward little steps.|
|00:07:58||- My name is Bob.
|00:08:00||Bob had been a champion bodybuilder.|
|00:08:03||You know that chest expansion programme
on late-night TV?|
|00:08:07||That was his idea.|
|00:08:09||I was a juicer.|
|00:08:11||You know, using steroids?|
|00:08:18||Oh, they use that on racehorses,
for Christ sakes.|
|00:08:23||And now I'm bankrupt.|
|00:08:28||My two grown kids|
|00:08:31||won't even return my phone calls.|
|00:08:34||Strangers with this kind of honesty
make me go a big, rubbery one.|
|00:08:41||Go ahead,... Cornelius.|
|00:08:43||You can cry.|
|00:09:01||And then... something happened.
I let go.|
|00:09:04||That's really good.|
|00:09:07||Lost in oblivion.|
|00:09:09||Dark and silent and complete.|
|00:09:14||I found freedom.
Losing all hope was freedom.|
|00:09:25||Babies don't sleep this well.|
|00:09:30||I became addicted.|
|00:09:47||If I didn't say anything|
|00:09:49||people always assumed the worst.|
|00:09:55||They cried harder... then I cried harder.|
|00:10:08||Now we're going to open the green door,
the heart chakra...|
|00:10:12||I wasn't really dying.|
|00:10:14||I wasn't host to cancer or parasites.|
|00:10:18||I was the warm little center
that the life of this world crowded around.|
|00:10:23||Imagine your pain
as a white ball of healing light.|
|00:10:26||It moves over your body, healing you.|
|00:10:30||Now keep this going. Remember to breathe|
|00:10:34||and step forward
through the back door of the room.|
|00:10:38||Where does it lead?|
|00:10:41||To your cave.|
|00:10:45||into your cave.|
|00:10:49||You're going deeper into your cave.|
|00:10:53||And you're going to find|
|00:10:55||your power animal.|
|00:11:12||Every evening I died.|
|00:11:15||And every evening I was born again.|
|00:11:23||Bob loved me because he thought
my testicles were removed too.|
|00:11:27||Being there, pressed against his tits,|
|00:11:30||ready to cry.|
|00:11:32||This was my vacation.|
|00:11:42||This is cancer, right?|
|00:11:47||This chick, Marla Singer,|
|00:11:49||did not have testicular cancer.|
|00:11:52||She was a liar.|
|00:11:54||She had no diseases at all.|
|00:11:56||I had seen her at Free And Clear,
my blood parasites group, Thursdays.|
|00:12:00||Then at Hope,
my bimonthly sickle-cell circle.|
|00:12:04||And again, at Seize The Day,
my tuberculosis, Friday night.|
|00:12:12||the big tourist.|
|00:12:15||Her lie reflected my lie.|
|00:12:17||And suddenly, I felt nothing.|
|00:12:19||I couldn't cry. So once again,|
|00:12:23||I couldn't sleep.|
|00:12:36||Next group, after guided meditation,|
|00:12:39||after we open our heart chakras,
when it's time to hug,|
|00:12:42||I'm gonna grab that bitch,
Marla Singer, and scream.|
|00:12:45||Marla, you liar!
You big tourist, I need this! Now, get out!|
|00:12:52||I hadn't slept in four days.|
|00:12:54||We'll just let that dry...|
|00:12:56||When you have insomnia,
you're never really asleep.|
|00:12:59||And you're never really awake.|
|00:13:03||To begin tonight's communion,|
|00:13:06||Chloe would like to say a few words.|
|00:13:09||Oh, yeah. Chloe.|
|00:13:12||Chloe looked the way Meryl Streep's skeleton
would look if you made it walk around|
|00:13:17||being extra nice to everybody.|
|00:13:20||Well, I'm still here.|
|00:13:22||But I don't know for how long.|
|00:13:25||That's as much certainty
as anyone can give me.|
|00:13:29||But I've got some good news.|
|00:13:31||I no longer have any fear of death.|
|00:13:38||But... I am in a pretty lonely place.|
|00:13:43||No-one will have sex with me.|
|00:13:46||I'm so close to the end,
and all I want is to get laid for the last time.|
|00:13:51||I have pornographic movies
in my apartment,|
|00:13:55||- and lubricants and amyl nitrite.
- Thank you, Chloe.|
|00:13:59||Everyone, let's thank Chloe.|
|00:14:02||Thank you, Chloe.|
|00:14:07||Now, let's ready ourselves
for guided meditation.|
|00:14:11||You're standing at the entrance of your cave.|
|00:14:15||You step inside your cave and you walk...|
|00:14:19||If I did have a tumor, I'd name it Marla.|
|00:14:25||The scratch on the roof of your mouth
that would heal if you could stop tonguing it.|
|00:14:30||But you can't.|
|00:14:33||..deeper into your cave as you walk.|
|00:14:36||You feel a healing energy all around you.|
|00:14:42||Now find your power animal.|
|00:14:52||OK. Let's partner up.|
|00:14:56||Pick someone special to you tonight.|
|00:15:07||- We need to talk.
|00:15:14||- I'm onto you.
|00:15:16||Yeah. You're a faker. You're not dying.|
|00:15:21||In the Tibetan-philosophy, Sylvia-Plath
sense of the word, I know we're all dying.|
|00:15:26||- But you're not dying the way Chloe is.
|00:15:31||So you're a tourist.|
|00:15:33||I've seen you. I saw you at melanoma,
I saw you at tuberculosis.|
|00:15:37||I saw you at testicular cancer!|
|00:15:40||I saw you practising this.|
|00:15:42||- Practising what?
- Telling me off.|
|00:15:44||Is it going as well as you hoped,... Rupert?|
|00:15:48||I'll expose you.|
|00:15:50||Go ahead. I'll expose you.|
|00:15:53||Come together. Let yourselves cry.|
|00:16:03||Oh, God. Why are you doing this?|
|00:16:05||It's cheaper than a movie
and there's free coffee.|
|00:16:08||Look, this is important.
These are my groups.|
|00:16:11||I've been coming for over a year.|
|00:16:13||- Why do you do it?
- I don't know.|
|00:16:16||When people think you're dying,
they listen to you instead of...|
|00:16:20||Instead of waiting for their turn to speak.|
|00:16:28||Share yourself... completely.|
|00:16:31||Look, you don't want to get into this.|
|00:16:33||- It becomes an addiction.
|00:16:36||I'm not kidding. I can't cry
if another faker is present, and I need this.|
|00:16:40||You gotta find somewhere else to go.|
|00:16:42||Candystripe a cancer ward.
It's not my problem.|
|00:16:49||No, wait a second. Hold on.|
|00:16:51||We'll split up the week, OK?|
|00:16:53||You take lymphoma and tuberculosis.|
|00:16:55||You take tuberculosis.
My smoking doesn't go over at all.|
|00:16:59||OK. Good. Fine.
Testicular cancer should be no contest.|
|00:17:02||Technically, I have more right to be there.
You still have your balls.|
|00:17:06||- You're kidding.
- I dunno. Am I?|
|00:17:11||- What do you want?
- I'll take the parasites.|
|00:17:13||You can't have both.
Take the blood parasites.|
|00:17:16||- I want brain parasites.
- I'll take the blood but I want brain dementia.|
|00:17:21||- I want that.
- You can't have the whole brain.|
|00:17:23||So far, you have four. I only have two.|
|00:17:26||OK. Take both the parasites. They're yours.|
|00:17:30||Now we both have three...|
|00:17:35||Hey! You left half your clothes.|
|00:17:54||- What, are you selling those?
|00:17:57||I'm selling some clothes!|
|00:17:59||So! We each have three. That's six.|
|00:18:01||What about the seventh day?
I want bowel cancer.|
|00:18:04||The girl had done her homework.|
|00:18:06||No. No. I want bowel cancer.|
|00:18:09||That's your favorite too?|
|00:18:11||- Tried to slip it by me, eh?
- Look, we'll split it.|
|00:18:14||Take the first and third Sunday.|
|00:18:23||Looks like this is goodbye.|
|00:18:26||Let's not make a big thing out of it.|
|00:18:28||How's this for not making a big thing?|
|00:18:38||Maybe we should exchange numbers.|
|00:18:43||- We might wanna switch nights.
|00:18:52||This is how I met Marla Singer.|
|00:18:57||Marla's philosophy of life
was that she might die at any moment.|
|00:19:01||The tragedy, she said, was that she didn't.|
|00:19:03||It doesn't have your name!
Who are you? Cornelius? Rupert?|
|00:19:07||Travis? Any of the stupid names
you give each night?|
|00:19:14||You wake up at SeaTac.|
|00:19:20||You wake up at O'Hare.|
|00:19:22||Dallas Fort Worth.|
|00:19:26||Pacific. Mountain. Central.
Lose an hour. Gain an hour.|
|00:19:30||The check-in for that flight
isn't for another two hours, sir.|
|00:19:34||This is your life,
and it's ending one minute at a time.|
|00:19:37||You wake up at Air Harbor International.|
|00:19:42||If you wake up at a different time,
in a different place,|
|00:19:46||could you wake up as a different person?|
|00:19:49||Everywhere I travel,|
|00:19:53||Single-serving sugar and cream.|
|00:19:56||Single pat of butter.|
|00:19:58||The microwave cordon bleu hobby kit.|
Tiny bars of soap.|
|00:20:08||The people I meet on each flight,|
|00:20:10||they're single-serving friends.|
|00:20:13||Between takeoff and landing,
we have our time together.|
|00:20:16||That's all we get.|
|00:20:23||On a long enough time line,
the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.|
|00:20:27||I was a recall coordinator.
My job was to apply the formula.|
|00:20:31||The infant went through the windshield.|
|00:20:33||A new car built by my company
leaves somewhere traveling at 60mph.|
|00:20:38||The rear differential locks up.|
|00:20:41||The teenager's braces
are stuck to the ashtray.|
|00:20:43||Might make a good anti-smoking ad.|
|00:20:46||The car crashes and burns
with everyone trapped inside.|
|00:20:49||Now, should we initiate a recall?|
|00:20:52||The father must have been huge.|
|00:20:54||See where the fat burned to the seat?
The polyester shirt?|
|00:20:57||Very modern art.|
|00:20:59||Take the number of vehicles in the field, A.|
|00:21:02||Multiply it by the probable rate of failure, B.|
|00:21:05||Multiply the result by
the average out-of-court settlement, C.|
|00:21:09||A x B x C|
|00:21:13||If X is less than the cost of a recall,|
|00:21:16||we don't do one.|
|00:21:18||Are there a lot of these kinds of accidents?|
|00:21:21||You wouldn't believe.|
|00:21:24||Which car company do you work for?|
|00:21:27||A major one.|
|00:21:32||Every time the plane banked too sharply
on takeoff or landing,|
|00:21:36||I prayed for a crash or a midair collision.|
|00:21:50||Life insurance pays off triple
if you die on a business trip.|
|00:21:57||"If you are seated in an emergency exit row|
|00:22:00||and would be unable or unwilling
to perform the duties|
|00:22:04||listed on the safety card, please
ask a flight attendant to reseat you."|
|00:22:10||It's a lot of responsibility.|
|00:22:12||Wanna switch seats?|
|00:22:14||No. I'm not sure
I'm the man for that particularjob.|
|00:22:18||An exit-door procedure at 30,000ft.|
|00:22:22||The illusion of safety.|
|00:22:25||Yeah. I guess so.|
|00:22:27||You know why
they put oxygen masks on planes?|
|00:22:30||- So you can breathe.
- Oxygen gets you high.|
|00:22:35||In a catastrophic emergency,
you take giant panic breaths.|
|00:22:39||Suddenly you become euphoric, docile.|
|00:22:42||You accept your fate.|
|00:22:45||It's all right here.|
|00:22:47||Emergency water landing, 600mph.|
|00:22:50||Blank faces. Calm as Hindu cows.|
|00:22:56||That's an interesting theory.|
|00:23:01||- What do you do?
- What do you mean?|
|00:23:03||What do you do for a living?|
|00:23:05||Why? So you can pretend you're interested?|
a kind of sick desperation in your laugh.|
|00:23:18||We have the exact same briefcase.|
- I make and I sell soap.|
|00:23:27||The yardstick of civilization.|
|00:23:30||And this is how I met...|
|00:23:34||Did you know if you mix gasoline and
frozen orange juice, you can make napalm?|
|00:23:39||- No, I did not. Is that true?
- That's right.|
|00:23:42||One can make all kinds of explosives
with simple household items.|
- If one was so inclined.|
|00:23:54||Tyler, you are by far the most interesting
single-serving friend I have ever met.|
|00:24:01||- Everything on a plane is single-serving...
- Oh, I get it. Very clever.|
|00:24:07||How's it working out for you?|
- Being clever?|
|00:24:14||Keep it up, then. Right up.|
|00:24:18||A question of etiquette.|
|00:24:21||As I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?|
|00:24:31||How I came to live with Tyler is...|
|00:24:33||Airlines have this policy
about vibrating luggage.|
|00:24:45||- Was it ticking?
- Throwers know modern bombs don't tick.|
|00:24:50||- Sorry, throwers?
- Baggage handlers.|
|00:24:53||But when a suitcase vibrates,|
|00:24:55||the throwers have got to call the police.|
|00:24:58||- My suitcase was vibrating?
- Nine times out of ten|
|00:25:02||it's an electric razor.|
|00:25:04||But... every once in a while|
|00:25:09||it's a dildo.|
|00:25:12||It's company policy never to imply
ownership in the event of a dildo.|
|00:25:16||We have to use the indefinite article,
a dildo, never|
|00:25:22||I don't own...|
|00:25:27||I had everything in that suitcase.
My CK shirts.|
|00:25:30||My DKNYshoes. My AX ties.|
|00:25:39||Hey! That's my car!|
|00:25:48||Home was a condo on the 15th floor|
|00:25:50||of a filing cabinet
for widows and professionals.|
|00:25:53||The walls were solid concrete.|
|00:25:56||A foot of concrete is important|
|00:25:58||when your next-door neighbor
has to watch game shows at full volume.|
|00:26:02||Or when a blast of debris
that used to be your personal effects|
|00:26:06||blows out of your windows
and sails flaming into the night.|
|00:26:17||I suppose these things happen.|
|00:26:32||There's... nothing up there.|
|00:26:34||You can't go into the unit. Police orders.|
|00:26:46||Do you have somebody you can call?|
|00:26:51||A houseful of condiments and no food.|
|00:27:03||The police later told me
the pilot light might have gone out|
|00:27:08||letting out just a little bit of gas.|
|00:27:11||That gas could have filled the condo.|
|00:27:14||1700 square feet with high ceilings
for days and days.|
|00:27:25||Then the refrigerator's compressor
could have clicked on.|
|00:27:35||I can hear you breathing...|
|00:27:46||If you ask me now,
I couldn't tell you why I called him.|
- Who's this?|
- Who is this?|
|00:28:41||We met... We met on the airplane.|
|00:28:44||We had the same suitcase?|
|00:28:46||The clever guy?|
|00:28:48||Oh, yeah. Right.|
|00:28:53||I called a second ago. There was no answer.|
|00:28:55||- I'm at a payphone.
- Yeah, I *69'd you. I never pick up my phone.|
|00:29:02||So what's up?|
|00:29:07||You're not gonna believe this.|
|00:29:11||You know, it could be worse.|
|00:29:14||A woman could cut off your penis
while you sleep and toss it out of a car.|
|00:29:18||There's always that. I don't know.|
|00:29:22||When you buy furniture,
you tell yourself, that's it.|
|00:29:25||That's the last sofa I'll need.|
that sofa problem is handled.|
|00:29:30||I had it all.
I had a stereo that was very decent.|
|00:29:33||A wardrobe that was getting very respectable.|
|00:29:37||I was close to being complete.|
|00:29:39||- Shit, man. Now it's all gone.
- All gone.|
|00:29:46||Do you know what a duvet is?|
|00:29:48||- A comforter.
- It's a blanket.|
|00:29:51||Just a blanket. Why do guys
like you and I know what a duvet is?|
|00:29:55||Is this essential to our survival
in the hunter-gatherer sense?|
|00:30:01||What are we, then?|
|00:30:03||I dunno. Consumers.|
|00:30:06||Right. We're consumers.|
|00:30:08||We are by-products of a lifestyle obsession.|
|00:30:11||Murder, crime, poverty.
These things don't concern me.|
|00:30:15||What concerns me are celebrity magazines,|
|00:30:19||television with 500 channels,|
|00:30:21||some guy's name on my underwear. Rogaine.|
|00:30:26||- Martha Stewart.
- Fuck Martha Stewart.|
|00:30:29||She's polishing the brass on the Titanic.
It's all going down.|
|00:30:33||So fuck off with your sofa units
and Strinne green stripe patterns.|
|00:30:36||I say never be complete.|
|00:30:40||I say stop being perfect.|
|00:30:42||I say let's evolve.|
|00:30:44||Let the chips fall where they may.|
|00:30:48||But that's me, and I could be wrong.|
|00:30:51||Maybe it's a terrible tragedy.|
|00:30:53||It's just stuff. Not a tragedy...|
|00:30:55||You did lose a lot of versatile solutions
for modern living.|
|00:30:59||Fuck, you're right. I don't smoke.|
|00:31:05||My insurance is probably gonna cover it, so...|
|00:31:14||The things you own end up owning you.|
|00:31:20||Do what you like, man.|
|00:31:23||Oh, it's late.|
|00:31:25||- Hey, thanks for the beer.
- Yeah, man.|
|00:31:28||I should find a hotel.|
|00:31:35||- A hotel?
|00:31:37||- Just ask, man.
- What are you talking about?|
|00:31:40||Oh, God. Three pitchers of beer
and you still can't ask.|
|00:31:47||You called me
because you needed a place to stay.|
|00:31:49||- Oh, hey. No, no, no.
- Yes, you did. So just ask.|
|00:31:53||Cut the foreplay and just ask, man.|
|00:31:57||Would... Would that be a problem?|
|00:32:00||Is it a problem for you to ask?|
|00:32:03||- Can I stay at your place?
|00:32:13||- I want you to do me a favor.
- Yeah, sure.|
|00:32:16||I want you to hit me as hard as you can.|
|00:32:20||I want you to hit me as hard as you can.|
|00:32:24||Let me tell you a little bit about Tyler Durden.|
|00:32:27||Tyler was a night person.|
|00:32:30||While the rest of us slept, he worked.|
|00:32:32||He had one part-time job as a projectionist.|
|00:32:35||A movie doesn't come all on one big reel.
It comes on a few.|
|00:32:38||Someone has to switch the projectors
at the exact moment|
|00:32:42||that one reel ends and the next one begins.|
|00:32:46||You can see little dots come into
the upper right corner of the screen.|
|00:32:50||In the industry, we call them cigarette burns.|
|00:32:52||That's the cue for a changeover.|
|00:32:54||He flips the projectors, movie keeps
going and the audience has no idea.|
|00:32:59||Why would anyone want this shitjob?|
|00:33:02||Because it affords him
|00:33:05||Like splicing a frame of pornography
into family films.|
|00:33:09||So when the snooty cat and the courageous
dog with the celebrity voices first meet,|
|00:33:14||that's when you'll catch a flash
of Tyler's contribution to the film.|
|00:33:25||Nobody knows that they saw it but they did.|
|00:33:27||Nice, big cock.|
|00:33:35||Even a hummingbird
couldn't catch Tyler at work.|
|00:33:43||Tyler also works sometimes as a banquet
waiter at the luxurious Pressman hotel.|
|00:33:53||He was the guerrilla terrorist
of the food service industry.|
|00:33:57||Do not watch. I cannot go when you watch.|
|00:33:59||Apart from seasoning the lobster bisque,
he farted on meringues,|
|00:34:04||and as for the cream of mushroom soup...|
|00:34:06||Go ahead, tell 'em.|
|00:34:08||You get the idea.|
|00:34:11||- You just want me to hit you?
- Come on. Do me this one favor.|
- I don't know. Never been in a fight. You?|
|00:34:17||- No. But that's a good thing.
- You can't know yourself if you haven't!|
|00:34:21||I don't wanna die without any scars.|
|00:34:24||- Come on. Hit me, before I lose my nerve.
- Oh, God. This is crazy.|
|00:34:28||So go crazy! Let it rip.|
|00:34:31||- I don't know about this.
- I don't either.|
|00:34:33||Who gives a shit? No-one's watching.
What do you care?|
|00:34:37||This is crazy. You want me to hit you?!|
|00:34:41||- Where? Like, in the face?
- Surprise me.|
|00:34:47||This is so fucking stupid.|
|00:35:02||He hit me in the ear!|
|00:35:04||- Well, Jesus, I'm sorry.
- Ow, Christ!|
|00:35:07||- Why the ear, man?
- I fucked it up.|
|00:35:09||No, that was perfect.|
|00:35:24||No, it's all right.|
|00:35:27||It really hurts.|
|00:35:32||Hit me again.|
|00:35:34||No, you hit me. Come on!|
|00:35:53||We should do this again sometime.|
|00:36:09||- Where's your car?
- What car?|
|00:36:21||I don't know how Tyler found that house|
|00:36:24||but he said he'd been there for a year.|
|00:36:26||It looked like it was waiting to be torn down.|
|00:36:29||Most of the windows were boarded up.|
|00:36:32||There was no lock on the front door from
when the police, or whoever, kicked it in.|
|00:36:37||The stairs were ready to collapse.|
|00:36:39||I didn't know if he owned it or was squatting.|
|00:36:42||Neither would have surprised me.|
|00:36:45||Yep. That's you.|
|00:36:47||That's me. That's the toilet. Good?|
|00:36:52||What a shithole.|
|00:37:00||Turning on one light meant
another light in the house went out.|
|00:37:04||There were no neighbors.
Just warehouses and a paper mill.|
|00:37:08||That fart smell of steam.
The hamster-cage smell of wood chips.|
|00:37:13||What have we here?|
|00:37:31||- Hey, guys.
|00:37:44||Every time it rained, we had to kill the power.|
|00:37:48||By the end of the first month,
I didn't miss TV.|
|00:37:52||I didn't even mind the warm, stale refrigerator.|
|00:38:08||Can I be next?|
|00:38:14||All right, man.|
|00:38:17||Lose the tie.|
|00:38:23||At night, Tyler and I were alone
for half a mile in every direction.|
|00:38:32||Rain trickled down through
the plaster and the light fixtures.|
|00:38:36||Everything wooden swelled and shrank.|
|00:38:39||Everywhere were rusted nails
to snag your elbow on.|
|00:38:43||The previous occupant had been a shut-in.|
|00:38:45||Hey, man. What are you reading?|
|00:38:47||Listen to this. It's an article written
by an organ in the first person.|
|00:38:52||"I am Jack's medulla oblongata.
|00:38:55||Jack could not regulate
his heart rate or breathing."|
|00:38:58||There's a whole series of these.|
|00:39:00||"I Am Jill's Nipples."|
|00:39:05||- "I Am Jack's Colon."
- "I Get Cancer. I Kill Jack."|
|00:39:12||After fighting, everything else
in life got the volume turned down.|
|00:39:19||- You could deal with anything.
- Have you finished those reports?|
|00:39:28||If you could choose,
who would you fight?|
|00:39:30||I'd fight my boss, probably.|
|00:39:35||- Yeah, why? Who would you fight?
- I'd fight my dad.|
|00:39:38||I don't know my dad.|
|00:39:40||I mean, I know him, but...|
|00:39:42||He left when I was like, six years old.|
|00:39:45||Married this other woman
and had some other kids.|
|00:39:48||He did this every six years.|
|00:39:50||- He changes city and starts a new family.
- Fucker's setting up franchises!|
|00:39:55||My dad never went to college.|
|00:39:57||- So it was real important that I go.
- That sounds familiar.|
|00:40:01||So I graduate. Call him up long-distance
and say, "Dad, now what?"|
|00:40:06||- He says, "Get ajob."
- Same here.|
|00:40:08||Now I'm 25. Make my yearly call again.|
|00:40:11||"Dad, now what?"|
|00:40:13||He says, "I dunno. Get married."|
|00:40:15||You can't get married.|
|00:40:19||I'm a 30-year-old boy.|
|00:40:21||We're a generation of men raised by women.|
|00:40:24||I'm wondering if another woman
is really the answer we need.|
|00:40:34||Most of the week, we were Ozzie and Harriet.|
|00:40:38||But every Saturday night,
we were finding something out.|
|00:40:43||We were finding out more and more
that we were not alone.|
|00:40:50||It used to be that when I came home angry
or depressed, I'd just clean my condo.|
|00:40:55||Polish my Scandinavian furniture.|
|00:40:57||I should have been looking for a new condo
or haggling with my insurance company.|
|00:41:02||I should have been upset
about my nice flaming little shit.|
|00:41:06||But I wasn't.|
|00:41:08||The premise of cybernetting an office
is make things more efficient.|
I just thought about next week.|
|00:41:15||Can I get the icon in cornflower blue?|
|00:41:19||Efficiency is priority No.1, people.|
|00:41:23||Because waste is a thief.|
|00:41:25||I showed this to my man here.
You liked it, didn't you?|
|00:41:32||You can swallow a pint of blood
before you get sick.|
|00:41:37||It was right in everyone's face.|
|00:41:39||Tyler and I just made it visible.|
|00:41:42||It was on the tip of everyone's tongue.|
|00:41:44||Tyler and I just gave it a name.|
|00:41:58||Come on, you've gotta go home!|
|00:42:22||Turn off the jukebox. Lock the back.|
Tyler gave the rules that he and I decided.|
|00:42:52||Welcome to Fight Club.|
|00:42:56||The first rule of Fight Club is|
|00:42:58||you do not talk about Fight Club.|
|00:43:01||The second rule of Fight Club is|
|00:43:04||you do not talk about Fight Club!|
|00:43:07||Third rule of Fight Club.|
|00:43:10||Someone yells stop, goes limp, taps out,|
|00:43:12||the fight is over. Fourth rule.|
|00:43:15||Only two guys to a fight.|
|00:43:20||One fight at a time, fellas.|
|00:43:22||Sixth rule. No shirts. No shoes.|
Fights will go on as long as they have to.|
|00:43:31||And the eighth and final rule.|
|00:43:34||If this is your first night at Fight Club|
|00:43:38||you have to fight.|
|00:43:44||This kid from work, Ricky,|
|00:43:46||couldn't remember whether
you ordered pens with blue ink or black.|
|00:43:51||But Ricky was a god for ten minutes|
|00:43:53||when he trounced
the maitre d' of a local food court.|
|00:43:58||Sometimes, all you could hear were the flat,
hard, packing sounds over the yelling.|
|00:44:07||Or the wet choke
when someone gasped and sprayed...|
|00:44:13||You weren't alive anywhere
like you were there.|
|00:44:16||But Fight Club only exists in the hours
between when Fight Club starts and ends.|
|00:44:21||Even if I could tell someone
they had a good fight,|
|00:44:24||I wouldn't be talking to the same man.|
|00:44:27||Who you were in Fight Club
is not who you were outside of it.|
|00:44:30||A guy came to Fight Club for the first time.
His ass was a wad of cookie dough.|
|00:44:35||After a few weeks, he was carved out of wood.|
|00:44:39||If you could fight any celebrity,
who would you fight?|
|00:44:42||- Alive or dead?
- Doesn't matter. Who'd be tough?|
|00:44:50||Shatner. I'd fight William Shatner.|
|00:44:54||We all started seeing things differently.|
|00:44:59||Everywhere we went,
we were sizing things up.|
|00:45:05||I felt sorry for guys packed into gyms,|
|00:45:08||trying to look like how Calvin Klein
or Tommy Hilfiger said they should.|
|00:45:13||Is that what a man looks like?|
|00:45:16||Oh, self-improvement is masturbation.|
|00:45:57||Fight Club wasn't about winning or losing.|
|00:46:01||It wasn't about words.|
|00:46:05||The hysterical shouting was in tongues|
|00:46:08||like at a Pentecostal Church.|
|00:46:15||- Is that it?
|00:46:17||When the fight was over, nothing was solved.|
|00:46:20||But nothing mattered.|
|00:46:25||Afterwards, we all felt saved.|
|00:46:29||Hey, man. How about next week?|
|00:46:31||How about next month?!|
|00:46:33||Irvine, you're in the middle.|
|00:46:35||New guy, you too.|
|00:46:39||Sometimes, Tyler spoke for me.|
|00:46:41||He fell down some stairs.|
|00:46:44||I fell down some stairs.|
|00:46:48||Fight Club became the reason to cut
your hair short or trim your fingernails.|
|00:46:53||OK. Any historical figure.|
|00:46:55||I'd fight Gandhi.|
|00:47:00||- How about you?
|00:47:05||Big guy, big reach.
Skinny guys fight till they're burger.|
|00:47:12||Hey, even the Mona Lisa's falling apart.|
|00:47:26||Where have you been the last eight weeks?|
|00:47:33||- How did you find me?
- You left a forwarding number.|
|00:47:36||I haven't seen you at any support groups.|
|00:47:39||We split 'em up.
That was the idea. Remember?|
|00:47:42||Yeah, but you haven't been going to yours.|
|00:47:45||- How do you know?
- I cheated.|
|00:47:49||I found a new one.|
- It's for men only.|
|00:47:53||Like the testicle thing?|
|00:47:59||Look, this is a bad time.|
|00:48:01||I've been going to Debtors Anonymous.|
|00:48:03||- They're really fucked-up people...
- I'm on my way out.|
|00:48:07||Me too. I've got a stomach full of Xanax.|
|00:48:09||I took what was left of a bottle.|
|00:48:12||It might have been too much.|
|00:48:14||Picture Marla Singer throw herself
around her crummy apartment.|
|00:48:18||This isn't a for-real suicide thing.
This is probably a cry-for-help thing.|
|00:48:22||So you're staying in tonight, then?|
|00:48:25||Do you wanna wait
and hear me describe death?|
|00:48:28||Do you wanna listen
and see if my spirit can use a phone?|
|00:48:35||Have you ever heard a death rattle before?|
|00:49:04||Tyler's door was closed. I'd been here for
two months and his door was never closed.|
|00:49:14||You won't believe this dream
I had last night.|
|00:49:17||I can hardly believe anything about last night.|
|00:49:30||What are you doing here?|
|00:49:37||This is my house.
What are you doing here?|
|00:49:58||Oh, you've got some fucked-up friends!|
|00:50:07||I come in last night. Phone's off the hook.|
|00:50:10||Guess who's on the other end?|
|00:50:12||I knew the story before he told me.|
|00:50:16||Have you ever heard a death rattle before?|
|00:50:20||Do you think it'll live up to its name?|
|00:50:23||Or will it just be a death hairball?|
|00:50:30||Prepare to evacuate soul.|
|00:50:39||How could Tyler, of all people,|
|00:50:41||think it was a bad thing
that Marla Singer was about to die?|
|00:50:57||You got here fast.|
|00:51:01||Did I call you?|
|00:51:13||The mattress is all sealed in slippery plastic.|
|00:51:20||Oh, don't worry. It's not a threat to you.|
|00:51:27||Somebody called the cops.|
|00:51:41||- Hey, where's 513?
- End of the hall.|
|00:51:45||The girl who lives there
used to be a charming, lovely girl.|
|00:51:49||She has lost faith in herself.|
|00:51:51||- Miss Singer, let us help you!
- She's a monster!|
|00:51:54||- You have every reason to live.
- She's infectious human waste!|
|00:51:58||- Miss Singer!
- Good luck trying to save her!|
|00:52:07||If I fall asleep,|
|00:52:09||I'm done for.|
|00:52:14||You're gonna have to keep me up|
|00:52:20||He was obviously able to handle it.|
|00:52:23||- You know what I mean, you fucked her.
- No, I didn't.|
|00:52:30||You're not into her, are you?|
|00:52:32||No! God, not at all.|
|00:52:34||I am Jack's raging bile duct.|
|00:52:37||Are you sure? You can tell me.|
|00:52:39||Believe me, I'm sure.|
|00:52:41||- Put a gun to my head and spray my brains.
- That's good.|
|00:52:44||She's a predator posing as a house pet.
|00:52:49||The shit that came out of
this woman's mouth, I had never heard!|
|00:52:54||I haven't been fucked like that
since grade school.|
|00:52:58||How could Tyler not go for that?|
|00:53:00||The other night,
he was splicing sex organs into Cinderella.|
|00:53:04||Marla doesn't need a lover,
just a caseworker.|
|00:53:07||Or a wash.
This isn't love, it's sport fucking.|
|00:53:09||She invaded my support groups
and now my home.|
|00:53:12||Hey, hey. Sit down.|
I can't have you talking to her about me.|
|00:53:22||Why would I...|
|00:53:24||Say anything about me or what goes on
in this house to her or anybody,... we're done.|
|00:53:29||- Now promise me. You promise?
|00:53:32||- Yeah, I promise.
|00:53:34||- I just said, I promise! What...
- That's three times you promised.|
|00:53:39||If only I had wasted a few minutes
and gone to watch Marla Singer die,|
|00:53:43||none of this would have happened.|
|00:53:50||Harder, yes! Oh, harder, harder!|
|00:54:00||I could have moved to another room.|
|00:54:04||On the third floor
where I might not have heard them.|
|00:54:07||But I didn't.|
|00:54:34||- What are you doing?
- Just going to bed.|
|00:54:38||Wanna finish her off?|
|00:54:43||- No. No, thank you.
- I've found a cigarette.|
|00:54:47||- Who were you talking to?
- Shut up.|
|00:54:50||I became the calm little center of the world.|
|00:54:54||I was the Zen master.|
|00:55:01||I wrote little haiku poems.|
|00:55:04||I e-mailed them to everyone.|
|00:55:06||Is that your blood?|
|00:55:10||Some of it, yeah.|
|00:55:12||You can't smoke in here.|
|00:55:15||Take the rest of the day off.|
|00:55:17||Come back Monday with some clean clothes.|
|00:55:20||Get yourself together.|
|00:55:22||I got right in everyone's hostile face.|
|00:55:25||"Yes, these are bruises from fighting."|
|00:55:27||"Yes, I'm comfortable with that."|
|00:55:29||"I am enlightened."|
|00:55:33||You give up the condo life, give up
all your flaming worldly possessions,|
|00:55:38||move to a dilapidated house
in a toxic waste area,|
|00:55:42||and you have to come home to this.|
- This is Detective Stern with the Arson Unit.|
|00:56:00||We have some new information about
the incident at your former condo.|
|00:56:05||I don't know if you're aware, but someone
sprayed Freon into your front-door lock.|
|00:56:10||They used a chisel to shatter the cylinder.|
|00:56:13||No, I wasn't aware of that.|
|00:56:15||I am Jack's cold sweat.|
|00:56:17||Does this sound strange to you?|
|00:56:20||Yes, sir, strange. Very strange.|
|00:56:23||- The dynamite
|00:56:25||left a residue
of ammonium oxalate potassium perchloride.|
|00:56:28||- Do you know what this means?
- No, what does it mean?|
|00:56:31||It means it was home-made.|
|00:56:33||I'm sorry. This is just coming
as quite a shock to me, sir.|
|00:56:38||Whoever set this dynamite could have blown
out your pilot light days before the explosion.|
|00:56:43||- The gas was just a detonator.
- Who would go and do that?|
|00:56:47||- I'll ask the questions.
- Tell him.|
|00:56:49||Tell him the liberator who destroyed
my property realigned my perceptions.|
|00:56:53||Excuse me. Are you there?|
|00:56:55||I am listening.
It's hard to know what to make of this.|
|00:56:58||Have you recently made enemies who might
have access to home-made dynamite?|
- Reject civilization,|
|00:57:05||especially material possessions.|
|00:57:08||- Son, this is serious.
- Yes, I know it's serious.|
|00:57:10||- I mean that.
- Yes, it's very serious.|
|00:57:13||Look, nobody takes this
more seriously than me.|
|00:57:16||That condo was my life. OK?|
|00:57:19||I loved every stick of furniture in that place.|
|00:57:23||That was not just a bunch of stuff
that got destroyed.|
|00:57:26||- It was me!
- I'd like to thank the Academy.|
|00:57:29||- Is this not a good time for you?
- Just tell him you fucking did it!|
|00:57:33||Tell him you blew it all up!
That's what he wants to hear.|
|00:57:37||- Are you still there?
- Wait. Are you saying that I'm a suspect?|
|00:57:42||No. I may need to talk to you, so you
let me know if you're gonna leave town.|
|00:57:51||Except for their humping,
Tyler and Marla were never in the same room.|
|00:57:56||My parents pulled this exact same act
|00:57:59||The condom is the glass slipper
of our generation.|
|00:58:03||You slip one on when you meet a stranger.|
|00:58:06||You... dance all night.|
|00:58:08||Then you throw it away.|
|00:58:10||The condom, I mean. Not the stranger.|
|00:58:21||I got this dress at a thrift store for $1.|
|00:58:23||It was worth every penny.|
|00:58:25||It's a bridesmaid's dress.|
|00:58:28||Someone loved it intensely|
|00:58:32||for one day.|
|00:58:34||Then tossed it.|
|00:58:38||Like a Christmas tree.|
|00:58:46||It's on the side of the road.|
|00:58:48||Tinsel still clinging to it.|
|00:58:52||Like a sex crime victim.|
|00:58:55||Underwear inside out.|
|00:58:57||- Bound with electrical tape.
- Well then, it suits you.|
|00:59:01||You can borrow it sometime.|
|00:59:11||Get rid of her.|
|00:59:14||- What? You get rid of her!
- Don't mention me.|
|00:59:17||I am six years old again,
passing messages between parents.|
|00:59:23||- I really think it's time you left.
- Don't worry, I'm leaving.|
|00:59:27||- Not that we don't love your visits.
- You are such a nutcase. I can't keep up.|
|00:59:34||Gotta get off|
|00:59:38||Gotta get off of this merry-go-round|
|00:59:45||Gonna get, need to get...|
|00:59:56||Why do you still waste time with her?|
|00:59:59||I'll say this about Marla.|
|01:00:01||At least she's trying to hit bottom.|
|01:00:04||And I'm not?|
|01:00:05||Feathers up your butt
do not make you a chicken.|
|01:00:08||What are we doing tonight?|
|01:00:11||Tonight... we make soap.|
|01:00:15||To make soap, first we render fat.|
|01:00:37||The salt balance has to be just right|
|01:00:39||so the best fat for soap comes from humans.|
|01:00:42||- Wait, what is this place?
- A liposuction clinic.|
|01:00:56||Richest, creamiest fat in the world.
Fat of the land!|
|01:01:05||No! Don't pull it, don't pull it!|
|01:01:13||- Oh, God!
- Give me another one.|
|01:01:22||As the fat renders,
the tallows float to the surface.|
|01:01:25||Like in Boy Scouts.|
|01:01:27||- It's hard to imagine you as a Boy Scout.
- Keep stirring.|
|01:01:34||Once the tallow hardens,
you skim off a layer of glycerin.|
|01:01:37||Add nitric acid, you've got nitroglycerin.|
|01:01:40||Then add sodium nitrate and sawdust,
you've got dynamite.|
|01:01:44||Yeah, with enough soap,
one could blow up just about anything.|
|01:01:48||Tyler was full of useful information.|
|01:01:50||People found clothes got cleaner
when washed at a certain point in the river.|
|01:01:54||- You know why?
|01:01:59||Human sacrifices were once made
on the hills above this river.|
Water permeated the ashes to create lye.|
|01:02:06||This is lye. The crucial ingredient.|
|01:02:08||Once it mixed with the melted body fat,
a white soapy discharge crept into the river.|
|01:02:13||May I see your hand, please?|
|01:02:21||What is this?|
|01:02:24||This is a chemical burn.|
|01:02:27||It will hurt more than any burn
and it will leave a scar.|
|01:02:30||Meditation worked for cancer,
it could work now.|
|01:02:34||- Don't shut the pain out.
- Oh, God!|
|01:02:37||The first soap was made from heroes' ashes,
like the first monkey shot into space.|
|01:02:42||Without pain or sacrifice,
we would have nothing.|
|01:02:45||I tried not to think
of the word searing of flesh.|
This is your pain, this is your burning hand.|
|01:02:51||I'm going to my cave
to find my power animal.|
|01:02:54||No! Don't deal with this
the way those dead people do! Come on!|
|01:02:58||- I get the point!
- No! You're feeling premature enlightenment.|
|01:03:05||It's the greatest moment of your life,
and you're off somewhere else!|
|01:03:09||I am not!|
Our fathers were our models for God.|
|01:03:14||If our fathers bailed,
what does that tell you about God?|
|01:03:18||Listen to me. You have to consider
the possibility that God does not like you.|
|01:03:23||He never wanted you.
In all probability, He hates you.|
|01:03:27||This is not the worst thing that can happen.
We don't need Him!|
|01:03:31||- I agree!
- Fuck damnation, fuck redemption.|
|01:03:34||We are God's unwanted children? So be it!|
|01:03:37||- I'm getting water!
- You can use water and make it worse or...|
|01:03:42||- Or use vinegar to neutralize the burn.
- Please let me up!|
|01:03:46||First, you have to give up.|
|01:03:48||First, you have to know, not fear,|
|01:03:51||know that some day, you're gonna die.|
|01:03:54||You don't know how this feels!|
|01:04:00||It's only after we've lost everything
that we're free to do anything.|
|01:04:24||You're one step closer to hitting the bottom.|
|01:04:30||Tyler sold his soap
to department stores at $20 a bar.|
|01:04:33||God knows what they charged.|
|01:04:35||- This is the best soap.
- Why, thank you, Susan.|
|01:04:38||It was beautiful.|
|01:04:41||We were selling rich women
their own fat asses back to them.|
|01:04:45||He was wearing his yellow tie.|
|01:04:48||I didn't wear a tie to work any more.|
|01:04:50||"The first rule of Fight Club
is don't talk about Fight Club."|
|01:04:54||I'm half-asleep again.
I must have left it in the copy machine.|
|01:04:57||"The second rule..." Is this yours?|
|01:05:02||Pretend you're me.
Make a managerial decision.|
|01:05:05||You find this. What would you do?|
|01:05:12||Well, I gotta tell you,|
|01:05:15||I'd be very, very careful
who you talk to about that.|
|01:05:18||Because the person who wrote that
|01:05:22||And this button-down, Oxford-cloth psycho
might just snap|
|01:05:26||and then stalk from office to office|
|01:05:29||with an Armalite AR10 carbine gas-powered
|01:05:34||pumping round after round
into colleagues and co-workers.|
|01:05:40||This might be someone
you've known for years.|
|01:05:43||Someone very, very close to you.|
|01:05:46||Tyler's words coming out of my mouth.|
|01:05:51||And I used to be such a nice guy.|
|01:05:53||Or maybe you shouldn't bring me
every piece of trash you pick up.|
|01:06:00||- Compliance and Liability.
- My tit's gonna rot off.|
|01:06:05||Will you excuse me? I need to take this.|
|01:06:13||- What do you mean?
- I need you to check for a lump in my breast.|
|01:06:17||- Go to a hospital.
- I can't afford to waste money on a doctor.|
|01:06:22||I don't know about this, Marla.|
|01:06:26||She didn't call Tyler. I'm neutral in her book.|
Taking food to Mrs Haniver and Mrs Raines.|
|01:06:36||Where are they, exactly?|
|01:06:38||Tragically, they're dead.
I'm alive and I'm in poverty. Want any?|
|01:06:43||- No, no.
- I got one for you.|
|01:06:45||Thanks for the thought.|
|01:06:48||What happened to your hand?|
|01:06:56||- Feel anything?
|01:06:59||Well, make sure.|
|01:07:01||OK, I'm pretty sure.|
|01:07:03||You feel nothing?|
|01:07:09||Well, that's a relief. Thank you.|
|01:07:13||- No problem.
- I wish I could return the favor.|
|01:07:17||Breast cancer doesn't run in my family.|
|01:07:19||- I could check your prostate.
- I think I'm OK.|
|01:07:22||Well, thanks, anyway.|
|01:07:30||- Are we done?
- Yeah, we're done.|
|01:07:32||See you... around.|
|01:07:56||It's me! Bob!|
|01:08:04||- We all thought you were dead.
- No, no. Still here.|
|01:08:07||- How are you, Bob?
- Better than I've ever been in my whole life.|
|01:08:11||- Really? Still remaining men together?
- No, no.|
|01:08:15||- I got something so much better now.
- Really, what is it?|
|01:08:21||The first rule is,
I'm not supposed to talk about it.|
|01:08:25||And the second rule is|
|01:08:28||I'm not supposed to talk about it.|
|01:08:30||- And the third rule is...
- Bob, Bob. I'm a member.|
|01:08:34||Look at my face, Bob.|
|01:08:38||That's fucking... fucking great.|
|01:08:40||- I've never seen you there.
- I go Tuesdays and Thursdays.|
|01:08:44||- I go Saturday.
|01:08:48||Yeah, hey, to both of us, right?|
|01:08:51||Have you heard about the guy
that invented it?|
|01:08:54||- Yeah, actually...
- I hear all kinds of things.|
he was born in a mental institution|
|01:09:00||and he sleeps only one hour a night.|
|01:09:04||He's a great man.|
|01:09:07||Do you know about Tyler Durden?|
|01:09:35||I didn't hurt you, did I?|
|01:09:37||Actually, you did.|
|01:09:39||Thank you for this.|
|01:09:41||Thank you, thank you, thank you.|
|01:09:46||This was mine and Tyler's gift.|
|01:09:48||Our gift to the world.|
|01:09:50||I look around, I look around,
I see a lot of new faces.|
|01:09:58||Which means a lot of people have been
breaking the first two rules of Fight Club.|
|01:10:11||I see in Fight Club the strongest
and smartest men who've ever lived.|
|01:10:15||I see all this potential.|
|01:10:17||And I see it squandered.|
an entire generation pumping gas.|
|01:10:26||Slaves with white collars.|
|01:10:31||Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes.|
|01:10:34||Working jobs we hate
so we can buy shit we don't need.|
|01:10:41||We're the middle children of history.|
|01:10:43||No purpose or place.|
|01:10:46||We have no Great War.|
|01:10:48||No Great Depression.|
|01:10:52||Our great war is a spiritual war.|
|01:10:55||Our great depression is our lives.|
|01:11:01||We've all been raised
on television to believe|
|01:11:04||that one day we'd be millionaires
and movie gods and rock stars.|
|01:11:08||But we won't.|
|01:11:10||We're slowly learning that fact.|
|01:11:13||And we're very, very pissed off.|
|01:11:20||- First rule of Fight Club is, do not talk...|
|01:11:30||Who are you?|
|01:11:32||- Who am I?
|01:11:35||There's a sign on the front
that says Lou's Tavern.|
|01:11:39||I'm fucking Lou. Who the fuck are you?|
|01:11:48||Who told you motherfuckers
that you could use my place?|
|01:11:52||We have a deal worked out with Irvine.|
|01:11:54||Irvine's at home with a broken collarbone.|
|01:11:57||He don't own this place. I do.|
|01:12:01||- How much money's he getting for this?
- There is no money.|
|01:12:05||- Free to all.
- Ain't that something?|
|01:12:08||It is, actually.|
|01:12:10||Look, stupid fuck!|
|01:12:12||- I want everybody out of here right now.
|01:12:15||You should join our club.|
|01:12:18||Did you hear what I just said?|
|01:12:20||You and your friend.|
|01:12:24||You hear me now?|
|01:12:28||No, I didn't quite catch that, Lou.|
|01:12:36||Still not getting it.|
|01:12:39||OK, OK, I got it.|
|01:12:41||I got it, I got it. Shit, I lost it.|
|01:12:45||Back! All of you!|
|01:13:00||Come on, man!
We really like this place.|
|01:13:13||- That's right, Lou. Get it out.
- Shut the fuck up.|
|01:13:23||Is that fucking funny?|
|01:13:35||Fucking guy is a loony, I'm telling you.|
|01:13:44||- You don't know where I've been, Lou.
- Oh, my God!|
|01:13:47||You don't know where I've been!|
|01:13:53||Please let us keep it, Lou! Please, Lou!|
|01:13:56||Fucking use the basement! Christ!|
|01:13:59||I want your word, Lou! I want your word!|
|01:14:02||On my mother's eyes.|
|01:14:16||You too, big guy.|
|01:14:22||We'll see you next week.|
|01:14:40||This week, each one of you
has a homework assignment.|
|01:14:43||You're gonna go out. You're gonna
start a fight with a total stranger.|
|01:14:52||You're gonna start a fight|
|01:14:54||and you're gonna lose.|
|01:14:58||Excellent choice, sir.|
|01:15:02||Hey! Watch out, jackass! Come on!|
|01:15:06||Now, this is not as easy as it sounds.|
|01:15:11||Son of a bitch!|
|01:15:13||Most people, normal people,
do just about anything to avoid a fight.|
|01:15:21||You sprayed me with your hose.
That's not necessary...|
|01:15:25||Jay! Go call 911!|
|01:15:30||Put the hose down.|
|01:15:32||Stop it! Stop it!|
|01:15:53||We need to talk.|
|01:16:00||Where to begin?|
|01:16:02||With your constant absenteeism?|
|01:16:04||With your unpresentable appearance?|
|01:16:07||You're up for review.|
|01:16:09||I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.|
- Let's pretend.|
|01:16:14||You're the Department of Transportation,
|01:16:17||Someone informs you that this company|
|01:16:21||installs front-seat mounting brackets
that failed collision tests,|
|01:16:25||brake linings that fail after 1,000 miles,|
|01:16:29||and fuel injectors
that explode and burn people alive.|
|01:16:35||Are you threatening me?|
- Get the fuck out of here. You're fired!|
|01:16:41||I have a better solution. Keep me
on the payroll as an outside consultant.|
|01:16:45||In exchange for my salary,|
|01:16:47||my job will be never to tell people
these things that I know.|
|01:16:51||I don't even have to come into the office.
I can do this job from home.|
|01:16:57||Who... Who the fuck do you think you are,
you crazy little shit?|
- I am Jack's smirking revenge.|
|01:17:19||What the hell are you doing?|
|01:17:34||Why would you do that?|
|01:17:36||Oh, my God! No! Please stop!|
|01:17:49||What are you doing?|
|01:17:52||Oh, God, no! Please! No!|
|01:17:54||For some reason,
I thought of my first fight, with Tyler.|
|01:18:24||Under and behind and inside
everything this man took for granted,|
|01:18:29||something horrible had been growing.|
|01:18:33||Give me the paychecks, like I asked,
and you won't ever see me again.|
|01:18:38||Then, at our most excellent
Please don't hit me again.|
|01:18:49||fax machine, 52 weekly paychecks
and 48 airline flight coupons.|
|01:18:54||We now had corporate sponsorship.|
|01:18:57||This is how Tyler and I were able to have
Fight Club every night of the week.|
|01:19:05||Now, the center of Fight Club
became the two men fighting.|
|01:19:08||The leader walked through the crowd,
out in the darkness.|
|01:19:14||Tyler was now involved in
a lawsuit with the Pressman Hotel|
|01:19:18||over the urine content of their soup.|
|01:19:26||I am Jack's wasted life.|
|01:19:36||Thank you, sir.|
|01:19:40||Tyler dreamed up
new homework assignments.|
|01:19:43||He handed them out in sealed envelopes.|
|01:20:25||- There's a Fight Club up in Delaware City.
- Yeah, I heard.|
|01:20:30||There's one in Penns Grove too.|
|01:20:33||Bob even found one up in New Castle.|
|01:20:35||- Did you start that one?
- No, I thought you did.|
|01:21:29||- Stop for a second.
- Hey, what are we doing?|
|01:21:32||- Turn around.
- What are we doing?|
|01:21:34||- Homework assignment.
- What kind?|
|01:21:38||- Is that a gun? Please tell me it's not.
- It's a gun.|
|01:21:42||- What are you doing?
- Meet me in the back.|
|01:21:44||- Don't fuck around!
- Meet me in the back.|
|01:21:47||On a long enough time line,|
|01:21:49||the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.|
|01:21:53||What are you doing? Come on!|
|01:21:55||Hands behind your back.
Give me your wallet.|
|01:22:00||Raymond K Hessel.
1320 SE Banning, Apartment A.|
|01:22:04||- Small, cramped basement apartment?
- How did you know?|
|01:22:07||They give shitty apartments letters.|
|01:22:10||Raymond! You're going to die.|
|01:22:15||Is that your mom and dad?
They're gonna have to call the kindly doctor.|
|01:22:19||Pick up your dental records. Know why?|
|01:22:21||- There'll be nothing left of your face.
- Oh, come on!|
|01:22:25||An expired community college student ID.
What did you study, Raymond?|
|01:22:29||- S... S... Stuff.
|01:22:32||Were the midterms hard?|
|01:22:35||- I asked you what you studied!
- Biology, mostly.|
- I don't know.|
|01:22:42||What did you wanna be, Raymond K Hessel?!|
|01:22:46||The question, Raymond,
was what did you want to be?|
|01:22:52||Answer him, Raymond, Jesus!|
|01:22:54||- Veterinarian. Veterinarian.
|01:22:56||- Yeah. Animals and stuff.
- Stuff. Yeah, I got that.|
|01:22:59||- So you need more schooling.
- Too much school.|
|01:23:02||- Would you rather be dead?
- No, please...|
|01:23:05||You'd rather die here, on your knees,
in the back of a convenience store?|
|01:23:15||I'm keeping your license.|
|01:23:18||Gonna check in on you.
I know where you live.|
|01:23:21||If you're not working
to be a veterinarian in six weeks,|
|01:23:24||you will be dead.|
|01:23:28||Now run on home.|
|01:23:35||Run, Forrest, run!|
|01:23:39||I feel ill.|
|01:23:42||Imagine how he feels.|
|01:23:44||Come on, this isn't funny!|
|01:23:46||What the fuck was the point of that?!|
|01:23:49||Tomorrow will be the most beautiful day
of Raymond K Hessel's life.|
|01:23:53||His breakfast will taste better
than any meal you and I have ever tasted.|
|01:23:59||You had to give it to him.|
|01:24:01||- Come on.
- He had a plan.|
|01:24:03||And it started to make sense
in a Tyler-sort of way.|
|01:24:07||No fear. No distractions.|
|01:24:09||The ability to let that which does not matter|
|01:24:28||You are not your job.|
|01:24:32||You're not how much money
you have in the bank.|
|01:24:37||You're not the car you drive.|
|01:24:39||You're not the contents of your wallet.|
|01:24:42||You're not your fucking khakis.|
|01:24:47||You are the all-singing,
all-dancing crap of the world.|
|01:25:00||I'll be out of your way in a sec.|
|01:25:03||You don't have to go.|
|01:25:10||No, I mean... It's OK.|
|01:25:22||Are you still going to groups?|
|01:25:33||When did that happen?|
|01:25:36||Do you care?|
|01:25:38||I dunno. I haven't thought about it in a while.|
|01:25:44||It was the smart move on her part.|
|01:25:51||What are you getting out of all this?|
|01:25:56||I mean, all this. Why do you keep...|
|01:25:59||Is this making you happy?|
|01:26:03||Yeah, well, sometimes.|
|01:26:06||I don't know. I don't understand.|
|01:26:09||Why does a weaker person
need to latch on to a strong person?|
|01:26:12||What is... What is that?|
|01:26:14||What do you get out of it?|
|01:26:18||No... That's not the same thing at all.|
|01:26:20||It's totally different with us.|
|01:26:25||What do you mean by us?|
|01:26:27||- I'm sorry. Do you hear this?
- Hear what?|
|01:26:31||- All that noise. Hold on.
- No, wait!|
|01:26:33||Don't change the subject!
I want to talk about this.|
|01:26:36||- You're not talking about me, are you?
- Playing doctor. What was going on there?|
|01:26:42||- What are you talking about?
- Nothing. Nothing.|
|01:26:45||- I don't think so.
- What do you want?|
|01:26:47||- Look at me.
- No. What?|
|01:26:51||- What is that?!
- It's nothing. Don't worry.|
|01:26:54||My God. Who did this?|
|01:26:56||- A person.
- Guy or girl?|
|01:26:58||- What do you care?
- What do you care if I ask?|
|01:27:01||- Leave me alone.
- You're afraid to say.|
|01:27:04||- I am not. Let me go.
- No! Talk to me.|
|01:27:06||Let go of me!|
|01:27:07||- This conversation
- This conversation|
|01:27:10||- is over.
- is over.|
|01:27:13||I just can't win with you, can I?|
|01:27:26||Hey, this is getting a little old!|
|01:27:29||What is... What is all this?|
|01:27:31||What do you think?|
|01:27:34||Hey, why do we need bunk beds?|
|01:27:49||What's all that?|
|01:27:51||If the applicant is young,
tell him he's too young.|
|01:27:54||- Old, too old. Fat, too fat.
|01:27:57||If the applicant waits three days
without food or shelter,|
|01:28:00||he may enter and begin training.|
|01:28:02||Training for what?|
|01:28:10||You think this is a game?|
|01:28:12||You're too young to train here, end of story.|
|01:28:15||Quit wasting our time.
Get the fuck out of here.|
|01:28:21||Bad news, friend.|
|01:28:24||It's not gonna happen.|
|01:28:26||Sorry if there was a misunderstanding.|
|01:28:28||It's not the end of the world.|
|01:28:30||Just... go away.|
and I will have to call the police.|
|01:28:42||Don't you look at me!|
|01:28:44||You're never getting in this fucking house!|
|01:28:48||Never. Now get the fuck off my porch!
Get off my porch!|
|01:28:51||Sooner or later,
we all became what Tyler wanted us to be.|
|01:28:55||I'm gonna go inside
and I'm gonna get a shovel.|
|01:29:05||- Got two black shirts?
- Yes, sir.|
|01:29:07||- Two pair of black pants?
- Yes, sir.|
|01:29:10||- One pair black boots? Black socks?
- Yes, sir.|
|01:29:13||- One blackjacket.
- Yes, sir.|
|01:29:15||- $300 personal burial money?
- Yes, sir.|
|01:29:32||You're too old, fat man.|
|01:29:34||Your tits are too big.
Get the fuck off my porch.|
|01:30:03||Like a monkey ready to be shot into space.|
|01:30:08||Ready to sacrifice himself
for the greater good.|
|01:30:18||You are too fucking old, fatty!|
|01:30:21||And you... You're too fucking|
|01:30:26||Get out of here, the both of you!|
|01:30:29||And so it went.|
|01:30:31||Listen up, maggots.|
|01:30:33||You are not special.|
|01:30:35||You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake.|
|01:30:39||You are the same decaying organic matter
as everything else.|
|01:30:43||Tyler built himself an army.|
|01:30:46||We are the all-singing,
all-dancing crap of the world.|
|01:30:49||We are all part of the same compost heap.|
|01:30:54||Why was Tyler Durden building an army?|
|01:30:57||To what purpose?|
|01:31:00||For what greater good?|
|01:31:05||In Tyler we trusted.|
|01:31:13||When he was like,
"You are not yourjob",|
|01:31:16||I was like, "Yeah!"|
|01:31:19||Hey, what's all this?|
|01:31:27||- What's going on?
- We're celebrating.|
|01:31:29||- What are we celebrating?
- Go on.|
- Let me get that for you.|
|01:31:43||The same great taste, Pepsi.|
|01:31:50||Investigators are here.
The Police Commissioner has arrived.|
|01:31:54||Could you tell us
what you think has happened here?|
|01:31:57||We believe this is one of many
recent acts of vandalism in the city|
to underground boxing clubs.|
|01:32:05||We will be coordinating
a rigorous investigation.|
|01:32:10||That was Police Commissioner Jacobs
who just arrived on the scene|
|01:32:14||- of a four-alarm fire that broke out...
- She's hot.|
|01:32:19||Back to you in the studio.|
|01:32:24||- Holy shit!
|01:32:34||What the fuck did you guys do?|
are on the premises...|
|01:32:44||Sir, the first rule of Project Mayhem
is you do not ask questions, sir.|
|01:32:55||The victory in the war against crime|
|01:32:57||will not come overnight.|
|01:32:59||It will take dedication and commitment
and, most of all, cooperation.|
|01:33:04||Streets are safer now.
There is hope in the inner city. However...|
|01:33:09||I gotta take a piss.|
|01:33:11||These are the first steps in a long journey.|
|01:33:14||That is why we have created Project Hope.|
|01:33:22||Project Hope will be ajoint effort|
|01:33:25||between the police and community leaders.|
|01:33:27||It will be a powerful new weapon
in the war against crime.|
|01:34:17||- Wrap it around the top of his Hacky Sack.
- His balls are ice cold.|
|01:34:23||Hi. You're gonna call off
your rigorous investigation.|
|01:34:27||You will publicly state
there is no underground group or|
|01:34:30||these guys are gonna take your balls.|
|01:34:33||They'll send one to the New York Times
and one to the LA Times.|
|01:34:39||The people you are after
are the people you depend on.|
|01:34:42||We cook your meals. We haul your trash.
We connect your calls.|
|01:34:46||We drive your ambulances.
We guard you while you sleep.|
|01:34:54||Do not fuck with us.|
|01:35:21||Bob, you're this way.|
|01:35:26||I am Jack's inflamed sense of rejection.|
|01:36:21||I felt like putting a bullet in every panda|
|01:36:24||that wouldn't screw to save its species.|
|01:36:30||I wanted to open the dump valves
on oil tankers|
|01:36:33||and smother those French beaches
I'd never see.|
|01:36:39||I wanted to breathe smoke.|
|01:36:59||Where did you go, psycho boy?|
|01:37:03||I felt like destroying something beautiful.|
|01:37:09||Get him to a fucking hospital.|
|01:37:24||Don't worry, Mr Durden.
Airport parking. Long term.|
|01:37:29||After you, Mr Durden.|
|01:37:52||- Something on your mind, dear?
|01:37:54||Yeah, why wasn't I told
about Project Mayhem?|
|01:37:58||First rule of Project Mayhem
is you do not ask questions.|
|01:38:01||Why didn't you include me in the beginning?|
|01:38:03||Fight Club was the beginning. Now it's left
the basements and it's Project Mayhem.|
|01:38:09||We started Fight Club together. Remember?
It's as much mine as it is yours.|
|01:38:13||- Is this about you and me?
- Yeah. Weren't we doing this together?|
|01:38:17||This does not belong to us.
We are not special.|
|01:38:21||Fuck that. You should have told me.|
|01:38:28||- Goddamn it, Tyler!
- What do you want?!|
|01:38:31||A statement of purpose?
Should I e-mail you?|
- You decide your level of involvement!|
|01:38:36||I will! I wanna know certain things first!|
|01:38:39||- The first rule of Project Mayhem...
- Shut up!|
|01:38:43||- I wanna know what you're thinking.
- Fuck what you know!|
|01:38:47||Forget about what you think you know
about life, friendship,|
|01:38:50||and especially about you and me.|
|01:38:54||What is that supposed to mean?|
|01:38:59||What are you doing?|
|01:39:02||What do you wish you'd done
before you died?|
|01:39:05||- Paint a self-portrait.
- Build a house.|
|01:39:08||- And you?
- I don't know. Nothing.|
|01:39:11||- Get in the right lane.
- You have to know!|
|01:39:13||If you died now,
how would you feel about your life?|
|01:39:16||I don't know! Nothing good.
Is that what you want to hear?|
|01:39:20||- Come on!
- Not good enough.|
|01:39:22||Stop fucking around! Tyler!|
|01:39:29||Goddamn it! Goddamn it! Fuck you!|
|01:39:31||Fuck Fight Club. Fuck Marla!|
|01:39:33||I am sick of all your shit!|
|01:39:40||- Quit screwing around. Steer!
- Look at you!|
- Look at you. You're fucking pathetic!|
|01:39:45||- Why? Why? What are you talking about?
- Why do you think I blew up your condo?|
|01:39:53||Hitting bottom isn't a weekend retreat.
It's not a goddamned seminar.|
|01:39:57||Stop trying to control everything
and just let go!|
|01:40:04||All right. Fine.|
|01:41:07||I'd never been in a car accident.|
|01:41:10||This must have been
what all those people felt like|
|01:41:13||before I filed them
as statistics in my reports.|
|01:41:22||We've just had a near-life experience!|
|01:41:29||In the world I see,|
|01:41:31||you're stalking elk
through the Grand Canyon forests|
|01:41:35||around the ruins of Rockefeller Center.|
|01:41:40||You'll wear leather clothes
that will last you the rest of your life.|
|01:41:45||You'll climb the thick kudzu vines
that wrap the Sears Tower.|
|01:41:49||And when you look down,
you'll see tiny figures pounding corn,|
|01:41:54||laying strips of venison
in the empty car-pool lane|
|01:41:58||of some abandoned superhighway.|
|01:42:13||Feel better, champ.|
|01:42:37||..Tyler was gone.|
|01:42:46||Was I asleep?|
|01:42:49||Had I slept?|
|01:42:51||You are not a beautiful, unique snowflake...|
|01:42:54||The house had become a living thing.|
|01:42:57||Wet inside from so many people
sweating and breathing.|
|01:43:02||So many people moving, the house moved.|
|01:43:10||I had to hug the walls.|
this clockwork of space monkeys.|
|01:43:15||You shouldn't be smoking in here!
You know how much ether is here!|
|01:43:19||Cooking and working and sleeping in teams.|
|01:43:24||Hang on a second.|
|01:43:45||It's under control, sir.|
|01:43:52||Sir, the first rule of Project Mayhem
is you do not...|
|01:43:59||I'm all alone.|
|01:44:02||My father dumped me. Tyler dumped me.|
|01:44:05||I am Jack's broken heart.|
|01:44:12||What comes next in Project Mayhem
only Tyler knows.|
|01:44:16||The second rule is you do not ask questions.|
|01:44:22||Get the fuck away from me!
Get the fuck away!|
|01:44:26||Who are all these people?|
|01:44:33||The Paper Street Soap Company.|
|01:44:37||Can I come in?|
|01:44:42||He's not here.|
|01:44:47||Tyler isn't here.|
|01:44:51||Tyler went away.|
|01:45:13||Get some help!|
|01:45:26||Two gunshot wounds coming through!
Make some fucking room!|
|01:45:30||What happened? What happened?|
|01:45:33||We were on assignment. We were supposed
to kill two birds with one stone.|
|01:45:37||Destroy a piece of corporate art...|
|01:45:39||Operation Latte Thunder. Go!|
|01:45:43||..and trash a franchise coffee bar.|
|01:45:52||We had it all worked out, sir.|
|01:46:03||- It went smooth until...
- Police! Freeze!|
- They shot Bob.|
|01:46:10||- They shot him in the head.
- Fucking pigs!|
|01:46:20||- Those motherfuckers!
- You morons.|
|01:46:24||You're running around in ski masks
trying to blow things up?|
|01:46:28||What did you think was gonna happen?!|
|01:46:32||OK, quick! Get rid of the evidence.
We gotta get rid of this body!|
|01:46:37||- Bury him.
|01:46:40||Take him to the garden and bury him.|
|01:46:42||- Come on, people, let's go!
- Get the fuck off!|
|01:46:45||Get away from him!
What are you talking about?|
|01:46:48||This isn't fucking evidence.
This is a person.|
|01:46:51||He's my friend
and you're not burying him in the garden!|
|01:46:54||He was killed serving Project Mayhem, sir.|
|01:46:57||- This is Bob.
- Sir, in...|
|01:46:59||In Project Mayhem, we have no names.|
|01:47:02||Now, you listen to me.|
|01:47:04||This is a man and he has a name,
and it's Robert Paulsen, OK?|
|01:47:08||- Robert Paulsen.
- He's a man|
|01:47:10||and he's dead now because of us.
Do you understand that?|
|01:47:18||In death, a member of Project Mayhem|
|01:47:22||has a name.|
|01:47:24||His name is Robert Paulsen.|
|01:47:27||His name is Robert Paulsen.|
|01:47:30||His name... is Robert Paulsen.|
|01:47:33||His name is Robert Paulsen.|
|01:47:37||Come on, guys. Please. Stop it.|
|01:47:40||His name is Robert Paulsen.|
|01:47:43||Shut up! This is all over with!|
|01:47:49||Get the fuck out of here.|
- No, this is Detective Stern of the Arson Unit.|
|01:48:25||I need to see you...|
|01:48:31||I went to all the cities
on Tyler's used ticket stubs, barhopping.|
|01:48:35||I didn't know how or why, but I could look
at 50 different bars, and somehow I just knew.|
|01:48:40||I'm looking for Tyler Durden.
It's very important that I talk to him.|
|01:48:45||I wish I could help you,|
|01:48:54||Every city I went to,|
|01:48:57||as soon as I set foot off the plane|
|01:49:00||I knew a Fight Club was close.|
|01:49:07||Look at my face. I'm a member.|
|01:49:09||Now, I just need to know if you've seen Tyler.|
|01:49:12||I'm not exposed to bespeak
any such information to you|
|01:49:15||nor would I, even if I had
said information at this juncture,... be able.|
|01:49:21||- You're a moron.
- I'm gonna have to ask you to leave.|
|01:49:26||Tyler had been busy...
setting up franchises all over the country.|
|01:49:34||Was I asleep? Had I slept?|
|01:49:38||Is Tyler my bad dream, or am I Tyler's?|
|01:49:42||- We've just heard the stories.
- What kind of stories?|
|01:49:45||- Nobody knows what he looks like.
- He has plastic surgery every three years.|
|01:49:49||That's the stupidest thing
I've ever heard.|
|01:49:52||- Is it true about Fight Club in Miami?
- Is Mr Durden building an army?|
|01:49:57||I was living in a state of perpetual d茅j脿 vu.|
|01:50:00||Everywhere I went,|
|01:50:03||I felt I'd already been there.|
|01:50:05||It was like following an invisible man.|
|01:50:09||The smell of dried blood,|
|01:50:11||dirty, bare footprints circling each other.|
|01:50:15||That aroma of old sweat, like fried chicken.|
|01:50:19||The feel of a floor still warm
from a fight the night before.|
|01:50:23||I was always just one step behind Tyler.|
|01:50:29||His name is Robert Paulsen...|
|01:50:37||Welcome back, sir.|
|01:50:40||How have you been?|
|01:50:42||Do you know me?|
|01:50:44||Is this a test, sir?|
|01:50:47||No. This is not a test.|
|01:50:48||You were in here last Thursday.|
|01:50:54||You were standing where you are now,
asking how good security is.|
|01:50:58||It's tight as a drum, sir.|
|01:51:03||Who do you think I am?|
|01:51:05||Are you sure this isn't a test?|
|01:51:08||No, this is not a test.|
|01:51:10||You're Mr Durden.|
|01:51:13||You're the one who gave me this.|
|01:51:16||Please return your seat backs
to their full upright and locked position.|
- Marla, it's me.|
|01:51:34||- Have we ever done it?
- Done what?|
|01:51:37||What kind of stupid question is that?|
|01:51:40||Stupid because it's yes
or because it's no?|
|01:51:42||- Is this a trick?
- No. I need to know...|
|01:51:45||You wanna know if I think
we were just having sex or making love?|
|01:51:49||- We did make love?
- Is that what you're calling it?|
|01:51:52||Just answer the question!
Did we do it or not?!|
|01:51:55||You fuck me, then snub me.
You love me, you hate me.|
then you turn into an asshole.|
|01:52:01||Does that describe our relationship, Tyler?|
|01:52:04||We just lost cabin pressure.|
|01:52:06||What did you just say?|
|01:52:08||- What is wrong with you?
- Say my name!|
You fucking freak! What's going on?|
|01:52:14||- I'm coming over!
- I'm not there!|
|01:52:16||You broke your promise.|
|01:52:21||- You fucking talked to her about me.
- What the fuck is going on?|
|01:52:24||I asked you for one thing. One simple thing.|
|01:52:28||Why do people think that I'm you?|
|01:52:40||Answer me. Why do people think I'm you?|
|01:52:43||I think you know.|
|01:52:45||- No, I don't.
- Yes, you do.|
|01:52:48||Why would anyone
possibly confuse you with me?|
|01:52:51||I... I don't know.|
|01:52:58||- You got it.
|01:53:01||- Do not fuck with us!
- Say it.|
|01:53:11||Because we're the same person.|
|01:53:15||We are the all-singing, all-dancing crap.|
|01:53:17||- I don't understand this.
- You wanted a way to change your life.|
|01:53:21||You could not do this on your own.|
|01:53:23||All the ways you wish you could be,|
|01:53:27||I look like you wanna look,
I fuck like you wanna fuck.|
|01:53:31||I am smart, capable and, most importantly,|
|01:53:33||I'm free in all the ways that you are not.|
|01:53:37||- Tyler's not here. Tyler went away.
|01:53:40||This isn't possible. This is crazy.|
|01:53:43||People do it every day.|
|01:53:45||They talk to themselves.
They see themselves as they'd like to be.|
|01:53:48||They don't have the courage you have
to just run with it.|
|01:53:55||You still wrestle with it,
so sometimes you're still you.|
|01:53:59||- We should do this again sometime.
- At times, you imagine you're watching me.|
|01:54:04||If this is your first time, you have to fight.|
|01:54:06||Little by little,
you're just letting yourself become|
|01:54:13||You are not yourjob
or how much money you have!|
|01:54:16||- No. You have a house.
- Rented in your name.|
|01:54:19||- You have jobs, a life.
- You work nights because you can't sleep.|
|01:54:22||Or you stay up and make soap.|
|01:54:24||- You're fucking Marla, Tyler.
- Technically, you are. It's all the same to her.|
|01:54:31||Oh, my God.|
|01:54:34||Now you see our dilemma.|
|01:54:36||She knows too much.|
|01:54:39||I think we're gonna have to talk about
how this might compromise our goals.|
|01:54:44||What... What are you saying?|
|01:54:47||This is bullshit. This is bullshit,
I'm not listening to this!|
|01:54:51||- You are insane!
- No. You're insane.|
|01:54:54||We simply do not have time for this crap.|
|01:54:58||It's called a changeover.|
|01:55:00||The movie goes on|
|01:55:03||and nobody in the audience has any idea.|
|01:55:19||- Sir! Are you checking out?
- Yeah. Bill me.|
|01:55:23||Can you initial this list of phone calls?|
|01:55:29||- When were these made?
- Between 2.00 and 3.30 this morning.|
|01:55:39||Have I been going to bed earlier every night?
Have I been sleeping later?|
|01:55:43||Have I been Tyler longer and longer?|
|01:55:51||Is anybody here?|
|01:55:56||D茅j脿 vu all over again.|
|01:56:00||With enough soap,
one could blow up anything.|
|01:56:05||Oh, my God.|
- Who am I calling?|
|01:56:13||1888 Franklin. This is maintenance. Hello?|
|01:56:20||1888 Franklin Street?|
|01:56:22||Yes. Can I help you?|
- Yeah, yeah.|
|01:56:29||I need to talk to your supervisor right away.|
- OK, listen to me.|
is about to happen to your building.|
|01:56:37||It's under control, sir.|
|01:56:40||- Excuse me?
- Don't worry about us, sir. We're solid.|
|01:56:57||Marla! Marla! Hey, wait!|
|01:57:01||Wait! I gotta talk to you! Marla! Marla!|
|01:57:04||Your bald freaks hit me with a fucking broom!
They almost broke my arm!|
|01:57:08||They were burning their fingertips with lye.|
|01:57:11||This needs a tremendous act of faith
on your part, but hear me out.|
|01:57:15||- Here comes an avalanche of bullshit.
- A little more faith than that.|
|01:57:22||I don't wanna hear
anything you have to say.|
|01:57:25||You have every right to be...|
|01:57:27||I'll just have a coffee, thanks.|
|01:57:29||Sir. Anything you order is free of charge, sir.|
|01:57:32||Why is it free of charge?|
|01:57:34||- Don't ask.
|01:57:37||I'll have the clam chowder, fried chicken
and baked potato and a chocolate chiffon pie.|
|01:57:42||Clean food, please.|
|01:57:44||In that case,
may I advise against the clam chowder.|
|01:57:47||No clam chowder. Thank you.|
|01:57:51||You got about 30 seconds.|
|01:57:56||I know I've been acting very strange, OK?|
|01:57:59||- I know it seems there's two sides to me...
- Two sides?|
|01:58:02||- You're Dr Jekyll and Mr Jackass.
- I know. But I realized something important.|
- The nature of our relationship wasn't clear|
|01:58:11||to me for reasons I won't go into.|
|01:58:14||- I know I haven't treated you well.
|01:58:17||No, no. Fifteen seconds, please!|
don't open your mouth.|
|01:58:22||I'm trying to tell you I'm sorry.|
|01:58:24||What I've come to realize
is that I really like you, Marla.|
|01:58:30||I really do.|
|01:58:32||I care about you and I don't want anything
bad to happen to you because of me.|
|01:58:37||Marla, your life is in danger.|
|01:58:42||You need to leave town for a while.
Get out of any major city.|
|01:58:45||- Just go camping...
- You're an insane person.|
|01:58:48||- No. I've involved you in something terrible.
- No. Shut up!|
|01:58:52||- You're not safe.
- Shut up!|
|01:58:56||- Listen, I tried, Tyler. I really tried.
- I know you did.|
|01:59:01||There are things about you I like.
You're smart, funny.|
|01:59:04||You're spectacular in bed.|
|01:59:10||You have very serious emotional problems.|
for which you should seek professional help.|
|01:59:16||- I know, and I'm sorry.
- You're sorry, I'm sorry. Everyone's sorry.|
|01:59:21||I can't do this any more.|
|01:59:26||And I won't.|
|01:59:30||You can't leave, Marla! You're not safe!|
|01:59:36||- Marla, you don't understand!
- Leave me alone!|
|01:59:38||- Marla, I am trying to protect you!
- Let go!|
|01:59:41||- I don't ever wanna see you again!
- That's fine...|
|01:59:44||Here, wait right here!|
|01:59:50||Hold it right there! Shut up!|
|01:59:53||Take this money and get on this bus.|
|01:59:55||I promise I won't bother you again.|
|01:59:59||Please get on the bus. Please get on the bus.|
|02:00:03||Why are you doing this?|
|02:00:05||They think you're a threat.
I can't explain it now, just trust me!|
|02:00:09||- If I know where you are, you won't be safe.
- I'll keep this, it's asshole tax.|
|02:00:14||- Fine. Remember, stay out of major cities.
|02:00:20||You're the worst thing
that ever happened to me.|
|02:00:38||Hello. I need you to arrest me.|
|02:00:40||I am the leader of a terrorist organization|
|02:00:43||responsible for numerous acts
of vandalism and assault all over this city.|
|02:00:48||In the metropolitan area,
we had probably 200 members.|
|02:00:52||Chapters have sprung up
in five or six other major cities already.|
|02:00:56||This is a tightly-regimented organization|
|02:00:59||with many cells capable of operating
independent of central leadership.|
|02:01:05||Go to the house, OK? 1537 Paper Street.|
|02:01:09||That's our headquarters.|
|02:01:11||In the back, buried in the garden,|
|02:01:14||you'll find the body of Robert Paulsen.|
|02:01:17||In the basement,
you're gonna find some bathtubs|
|02:01:20||that have been used very recently
to make large quantities of nitroglycerin.|
|02:01:26||I believe the plan is to blow up|
of these credit card companies|
|02:01:31||and the TRW building.|
|02:01:34||Why these buildings?
Why credit card companies?|
|02:01:37||If you erase the debt record,
then we all go back to zero.|
|02:01:42||You'll create total chaos.|
|02:01:46||Keep him talking. I need to make a phone
|02:01:59||I really admire what you're doing.|
|02:02:04||You're a brave man to order this.|
|02:02:06||You're a genius, sir.|
|02:02:08||You said if anyone ever interferes
with Project Mayhem, even you,|
|02:02:13||we gotta get his balls.|
|02:02:17||- Don't fight.
- It's a powerful gesture, Mr Durden.|
|02:02:20||- It will set an example.
- You're making a big mistake!|
|02:02:23||- You said you'd say that.
- I'm not Tyler Durden!|
|02:02:26||- You told us you'd say that too.
- All right. I am Tyler Durden.|
|02:02:30||Listen to me. I'm giving you a direct order.|
|02:02:33||- We're aborting this mission now.
- You said you would definitely say that.|
|02:02:43||Are you fucking out of your minds?
You're police officers!|
|02:02:48||Is somebody timing this?|
|02:02:50||Keep your mouth shut.|
|02:02:58||Some of this information checks out.|
|02:03:00||- Let's go to that house on Paper Street.
- Be right there.|
|02:03:07||- I got him.
- Sir, we have to do this.|
|02:03:10||- Stop fighting!
- Where's the rubber band?|
|02:03:12||Get away from me! Drop that fucking knife!|
|02:03:18||Back up. Face down on the floor right now!|
|02:03:23||Get down on the floor!|
|02:03:30||The first person
that comes out of this door|
|02:03:33||gets a lead salad! Understand?|
|02:03:59||Get away! Stay away!|
|02:04:17||I ran until my muscles burned
and my veins pumped battery acid.|
|02:04:24||Then I ran some more.|
|02:05:07||What the fuck are you doing?|
|02:05:09||Running around in your underpants!
You look crazy!|
|02:05:12||No. I'm onto you.
I know what's going on here.|
|02:05:15||Come on, then. I got us a great place
to watch from. It'll be like pay-per-view.|
|02:06:08||- Oh, Christ.
- Now what are you doing?|
|02:06:11||- I'm stopping this.
|02:06:14||- The greatest thing you've ever done.
- I can't let this happen.|
|02:06:18||There are 10 other bombs
in 10 other buildings.|
|02:06:21||Since when is Project Mayhem
|02:06:24||The buildings are empty.|
|02:06:26||We're not killing anyone.
We're setting 'em free!|
|02:06:29||Bob is dead. They shot him in the head.|
|02:06:32||You wanna make an omelette,
you gotta break some eggs.|
|02:06:35||No. I'm not listening to you.
You're not even there.|
|02:06:45||I wouldn't do that.
Not unless you knew which wires were what.|
|02:06:49||If you know, I know.|
|02:06:56||Or maybe I knew you'd know, so I spent
all day thinking about the wrong ones.|
|02:07:12||Oh, heavens, no. Not the green one.|
|02:07:15||Pull any one but the green one.|
|02:07:23||I asked you not to do that!|
|02:07:30||Tyler, get away from the van.|
|02:07:34||Tyler, I'm not kidding!
Get away from the van!|
|02:07:47||You are now firing a gun
at your imaginary friend|
|02:07:50||near 400 gallons of nitroglycerin!|
|02:07:55||Cool it, Tyler!|
|02:09:40||This is it.|
|02:09:47||I think this is about where we came in.|
|02:09:49||Do you have a speech for the occasion?|
|02:09:55||I still can't think of anything.|
|02:10:06||It's getting exciting now.|
|02:10:10||Two and a half.|
|02:10:12||Think of everything we've accomplished.|
|02:10:14||Out these windows, we will view
the collapse of financial history.|
|02:10:19||One step closer to economic equilibrium.|
|02:10:37||Why is she here?|
|02:10:39||Tying up loose ends.|
|02:10:41||Put me down, you baldheaded fuck!|
|02:10:44||- I beg you, please don't do this.
- I'm not doing this.|
|02:10:47||- We are doing this. This is what we want.
|02:10:51||- I don't want this.
- Right. Except you is meaningless now.|
|02:10:56||- We have to forget about you.
- You're a voice in my head.|
|02:11:00||You're a voice in mine!|
|02:11:02||- Why can't I get rid of you?
- You need me.|
|02:11:05||No. I don't. I really don't any more.|
|02:11:07||You created me. I didn't create some
loser alter ego to make me feel better.|
|02:11:11||- Take some responsibility.
- I do. I am responsible for all of it|
|02:11:16||and I accept that.|
|02:11:17||So, please, I'm begging you,
please call this off.|
|02:11:23||Have I ever let us down?|
|02:11:27||How far have you come because of me?!|
|02:11:35||I will bring us through this.|
|02:11:37||As always, I will carry you
kicking and screaming|
|02:11:41||and in the end you will thank me.|
|02:11:47||I'm grateful to you.
For everything that you've done for me.|
|02:11:50||But this is too much. I don't want this.|
|02:11:53||What do you want? Your shitjob back?
Fucking condo world, watching sitcoms?|
|02:11:59||Fuck you! I won't do it.|
|02:12:01||- This can't be happening.
- It's already done, so shut up!|
|02:12:05||60 seconds till CRI.|
|02:12:11||I can figure this out. This isn't even real.|
|02:12:14||You're not real, that gun...
That gun isn't even in your hand.|
|02:12:20||The gun's in my hand.|
|02:12:27||Good for you. It doesn't change a thing.|
|02:12:38||Why do you wanna put a gun to your head?|
|02:12:41||Not my head, Tyler.|
|02:12:52||Where are you going with this, Ikea boy?|
|02:13:01||Hey. It's you and me.|
|02:13:15||I want you to really listen to me.|
|02:13:20||My eyes are open.|
|02:13:41||What's that smell?|
|02:14:03||- Where is everybody?
- Oh, no. What's going on?|
|02:14:09||Oh, my God!|
|02:14:16||Are you... Are you all right, sir?|
|02:14:20||- Oh, yeah, I'm OK.
- You look terrible, sir. What happened?|
|02:14:24||- Nothing, it's no problem.
- No, no, no, sir. He's not kidding.|
|02:14:28||- You look awful. You need assistance.
- I'm fine.|
|02:14:31||Look, I'm fine... Everything's fine.|
|02:14:39||- Let her go.
- Christ Almighty!|
|02:14:47||- Leave her with me. Meet me downstairs.
- Are you sure?|
|02:14:51||Yes, I'm sure.|
|02:14:55||You fucker! What kind of sick
fucking game are you playing at?!|
|02:14:59||Putting me on a... Oh, my God, your face!|
|02:15:02||Yeah, I know.|
|02:15:10||- Don't ask.
- You're shot.|
|02:15:12||- Yes, I'm shot.
- Oh, my God.|
|02:15:15||- I can't believe he's standing.
- One tough motherfucker.|
|02:15:22||Who did this?|
|02:15:24||I did, actually.|
|02:15:27||Find some gauze.|
|02:15:30||You shot yourself?|
|02:15:32||Yes, but it's OK. Marla, look at me.|
|02:15:35||I'm really OK.|
|02:15:37||Trust me. Everything's gonna be fine.|
|02:15:54||You met me at a very strange time in my life.|
