Fight Club

00:02:04People always ask me if I know Tyler Durden.
00:02:08Three minutes.
00:02:10This is it. Ground zero.
00:02:12Do you have a speech for the occasion?
00:02:16With a gun barrel between your teeth, you speak only in vowels.
00:02:19I can't think of anything.
00:02:22For a second, I forget about Tyler's controlled demolition thing
00:02:26and I wonder how clean that gun is.
00:02:28It's getting exciting now.
00:02:30That old thing, how you always hurt the one you love.
00:02:33Well, it works both ways.
00:02:35We have front-row seats for this theater of mass destruction.
00:02:40The Demolitions Committee of Project Mayhem
00:02:43wrapped the foundations of 12 buildings with explosives.
00:02:47In two minutes, primary charges will blow base charges
00:02:50and a few blocks will be reduced to smouldering rubble.
00:02:54I know this because Tyler knows this.
00:02:57Two and a half. Think of everything we've accomplished.
00:03:00Suddenly I realize that all of this, the gun, the bombs, the revolution,
00:03:06has got something to do with a girl named Marla Singer.
00:03:12Bob. Bob had bitch tits.
00:03:14This was a support group for men with testicular cancer.
00:03:18The big moosie slobbering all over me, that was Bob.
00:03:22We're still men.
00:03:24Yes, we're men.
00:03:26Men is what we are.
00:03:28Bob had had his testicles removed. Then hormone therapy.
00:03:32He developed bitch tits because his testosterone was too high
00:03:36and 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
00:03:44that hung enormous, the way you'd think of God's as big.
00:03:49OK, you cry now.
00:03:51No, wait. Back up. Let me start earlier.
00:03:55For six months, I couldn't sleep.
00:03:58I couldn't sleep.
00:04:00With insomnia, nothing's real.
00:04:03Everything's far away.
00:04:06Everything's a copy of a copy
00:04:08of a copy.
00:04:12When deep space exploration ramps up, it'll be the corporations that name everything.
00:04:18The IBM Stellar Sphere.
00:04:20The Microsoft Galaxy.
00:04:23The Planet Starbucks.
00:04:25I need you out of town this week to cover some red flags.
00:04:28It must have been Tuesday. He had on his cornflower blue tie.
00:04:32You want me to deprioritize my reports until you advise of a status upgrade?
00:04:37Prioritize these. Here's your flight coupons. Call me if there's any snags.
00:04:41He was full of pep. Must have had his grande latte enema.
00:04:46Like so many others, I had become a slave to the Ikea nesting instinct.
00:04:52Yes. I'd like to order
00:04:54the Erika Pekkari dust ruffles.
00:04:56- Please hold. - Anything clever,
00:04:59like a coffee table in the shape of a yin-yang, I had to have it.
00:05:04The Klipsk personal office unit.
00:05:07The Hovetrekke home exerbike.
00:05:09Or the Ohamshab sofa with the Strinne green stripe pattern.
00:05:13Even the Ryslampa wire lamps of environmentally-friendly unbleached paper.
00:05:18I'd flip through catalogues and wonder
00:05:21"What kind of dining set defines me as a person?"
00:05:24I had it all. Even the glass dishes with tiny bubbles and imperfections,
00:05:29proof that they were crafted by the honest, hard-working, indigenous peoples of...
00:05:34- Please hold. - ..wherever.
00:05:38We used to read pornography.
00:05:40Now it was the Horchow collection.
00:05:43- No. You can't die of insomnia. - What about narcolepsy?
00:05:47I nod off, I wake up in strange places.
00:05:49I have no idea how I got there.
00:05:51- You need to lighten up. - Can you please just give me something?
00:05:55Red and blue Tuinals, lipstick-red Seconals...
00:05:59No. You need healthy, natural sleep.
00:06:03Chew some valerian root and get more exercise.
00:06:09Hey, come on.
00:06:11- I'm in pain. - You wanna see pain?
00:06:13Swing by First Methodist, Tuesday nights.
00:06:16See the guys with testicular cancer.
00:06:19That's pain.
00:06:37I always wanted three kids... two boys and a girl.
00:06:40Mindy wanted two girls and a boy.
00:06:44We never could agree on anything.
00:06:47Well, I... She...
00:06:49She had her first child last week.
00:06:52A girl.
00:06:54With... With her... With her new husband.
00:07:01Thank God, you know...
00:07:04I'm glad for her.
00:07:06She deserves...
00:07:13Everyone, let's thank Thomas for sharing himself with us.
00:07:17Thank you, Thomas.
00:07:19I look around this room, and I see a lot of courage.
00:07:23And that gives me strength.
00:07:25We give each other strength.
00:07:27It's time for the one-on-ones.
00:07:30So let's all of us follow Thomas's example and really open ourselves up.
00:07:35Could you find a partner?
00:07:39And this is how I met the big moosie.
00:07:44His eyes already shrink-wrapped in tears.
00:07:50Knees together. Those awkward little steps.
00:07:58- My name is Bob. - Bob?
00:08:00Bob had been a champion bodybuilder.
00:08:03You know that chest expansion programme on late-night TV?
00:08:07That was his idea.
00:08:09I was a juicer.
00:08:11You know, using steroids?
00:08:13Diabonal and
00:08:18Oh, they use that on racehorses, for Christ sakes.
00:08:23And now I'm bankrupt.
00:08:26I'm divorced.
00:08:28My two grown kids
00:08:31won't even return my phone calls.
00:08:34Strangers with this kind of honesty make me go a big, rubbery one.
00:08:41Go ahead,... Cornelius.
00:08:43You can cry.
00:09:01And then... something happened. I let go.
00:09:04That's really good.
00:09:07Lost in oblivion.
00:09:09Dark and silent and complete.
00:09:14I found freedom. Losing all hope was freedom.
00:09:20It's OK.
00:09:25Babies don't sleep this well.
00:09:30I became addicted.
00:09:47If I didn't say anything
00:09:49people always assumed the worst.
00:09:55They cried harder... then I cried harder.
00:10:08Now we're going to open the green door, the heart chakra...
00:10:12I wasn't really dying.
00:10:14I wasn't host to cancer or parasites.
00:10:18I was the warm little center that the life of this world crowded around.
00:10:23Imagine your pain as a white ball of healing light.
00:10:26It moves over your body, healing you.
00:10:30Now keep this going. Remember to breathe
00:10:34and step forward through the back door of the room.
00:10:38Where does it lead?
00:10:41To your cave.
00:10:43Step forward
00:10:45into your cave.
00:10:47That's right.
00:10:49You're going deeper into your cave.
00:10:53And you're going to find
00:10:55your power animal.
00:11:12Every evening I died.
00:11:15And every evening I was born again.
00:11:23Bob loved me because he thought my testicles were removed too.
00:11:27Being there, pressed against his tits,
00:11:30ready to cry.
00:11:32This was my vacation.
00:11:37And she
00:11:39ruined everything.
00:11:42This is cancer, right?
00:11:47This chick, Marla Singer,
00:11:49did not have testicular cancer.
00:11:52She was a liar.
00:11:54She had no diseases at all.
00:11:56I had seen her at Free And Clear, my blood parasites group, Thursdays.
00:12:00Then at Hope, my bimonthly sickle-cell circle.
00:12:04And again, at Seize The Day, my tuberculosis, Friday night.
00:12:12the big tourist.
00:12:15Her lie reflected my lie.
00:12:17And suddenly, I felt nothing.
00:12:19I couldn't cry. So once again,
00:12:23I couldn't sleep.
00:12:36Next group, after guided meditation,
00:12:39after we open our heart chakras, when it's time to hug,
00:12:42I'm gonna grab that bitch, Marla Singer, and scream.
00:12:45Marla, you liar! You big tourist, I need this! Now, get out!
00:12:52I hadn't slept in four days.
00:12:54We'll just let that dry...
00:12:56When you have insomnia, you're never really asleep.
00:12:59And you're never really awake.
00:13:03To begin tonight's communion,
00:13:06Chloe would like to say a few words.
00:13:09Oh, yeah. Chloe.
00:13:12Chloe looked the way Meryl Streep's skeleton would look if you made it walk around
00:13:17being extra nice to everybody.
00:13:20Well, I'm still here.
00:13:22But I don't know for how long.
00:13:25That's as much certainty as anyone can give me.
00:13:29But I've got some good news.
00:13:31I no longer have any fear of death.
00:13:38But... I am in a pretty lonely place.
00:13:43No-one will have sex with me.
00:13:46I'm so close to the end, and all I want is to get laid for the last time.
00:13:51I have pornographic movies in my apartment,
00:13:55- and lubricants and amyl nitrite. - Thank you, Chloe.
00:13:59Everyone, let's thank Chloe.
00:14:02Thank you, Chloe.
00:14:07Now, let's ready ourselves for guided meditation.
00:14:11You're standing at the entrance of your cave.
00:14:15You step inside your cave and you walk...
00:14:19If I did have a tumor, I'd name it Marla.
00:14:25The scratch on the roof of your mouth that would heal if you could stop tonguing it.
00:14:30But you can't.
00:14:33..deeper into your cave as you walk.
00:14:36You feel a healing energy all around you.
00:14:42Now find your power animal.
00:14:52OK. Let's partner up.
00:14:56Pick someone special to you tonight.
00:15:07- We need to talk. - Sure.
00:15:14- I'm onto you. - What?
00:15:16Yeah. You're a faker. You're not dying.
00:15:21In 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. - So?
00:15:31So you're a tourist.
00:15:33I've seen you. I saw you at melanoma, I saw you at tuberculosis.
00:15:37I saw you at testicular cancer!
00:15:40I saw you practising this.
00:15:42- Practising what? - Telling me off.
00:15:44Is it going as well as you hoped,... Rupert?
00:15:48I'll expose you.
00:15:50Go ahead. I'll expose you.
00:15:53Come together. Let yourselves cry.
00:16:03Oh, God. Why are you doing this?
00:16:05It's cheaper than a movie and there's free coffee.
00:16:08Look, this is important. These are my groups.
00:16:11I've been coming for over a year.
00:16:13- Why do you do it? - I don't know.
00:16:16When people think you're dying, they listen to you instead of...
00:16:20Instead of waiting for their turn to speak.
00:16:24Yeah. Yeah.
00:16:28Share yourself... completely.
00:16:31Look, you don't want to get into this.
00:16:33- It becomes an addiction. - Really?
00:16:36I'm not kidding. I can't cry if another faker is present, and I need this.
00:16:40You gotta find somewhere else to go.
00:16:42Candystripe a cancer ward. It's not my problem.
00:16:49No, wait a second. Hold on.
00:16:51We'll split up the week, OK?
00:16:53You take lymphoma and tuberculosis.
00:16:55You take tuberculosis. My smoking doesn't go over at all.
00:16:59OK. Good. Fine. Testicular cancer should be no contest.
00:17:02Technically, I have more right to be there. You still have your balls.
00:17:06- You're kidding. - I dunno. Am I?
00:17:09No. No.
00:17:11- What do you want? - I'll take the parasites.
00:17:13You 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.
00:17:23So far, you have four. I only have two.
00:17:26OK. Take both the parasites. They're yours.
00:17:30Now we both have three...
00:17:35Hey! You left half your clothes.
00:17:54- What, are you selling those? - Yes!
00:17:57I'm selling some clothes!
00:17:59So! We each have three. That's six.
00:18:01What about the seventh day? I want bowel cancer.
00:18:04The girl had done her homework.
00:18:06No. No. I want bowel cancer.
00:18:09That's your favorite too?
00:18:11- Tried to slip it by me, eh? - Look, we'll split it.
00:18:14Take the first and third Sunday.
00:18:23Looks like this is goodbye.
00:18:26Let's not make a big thing out of it.
00:18:28How's this for not making a big thing?
00:18:34Hey, Marla!
00:18:38Maybe we should exchange numbers.
00:18:41Should we?
00:18:43- We might wanna switch nights. - OK.
00:18:52This is how I met Marla Singer.
00:18:57Marla's philosophy of life was that she might die at any moment.
00:19:01The tragedy, she said, was that she didn't.
00:19:03It doesn't have your name! Who are you? Cornelius? Rupert?
00:19:07Travis? Any of the stupid names you give each night?
00:19:14You wake up at SeaTac.
00:19:17SFO. LAX.
00:19:20You wake up at O'Hare.
00:19:22Dallas Fort Worth.
00:19:26Pacific. Mountain. Central. Lose an hour. Gain an hour.
00:19:30The check-in for that flight isn't for another two hours, sir.
00:19:34This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time.
00:19:37You wake up at Air Harbor International.
00:19:42If you wake up at a different time, in a different place,
00:19:46could you wake up as a different person?
00:19:49Everywhere I travel,
00:19:51tiny life.
00:19:53Single-serving sugar and cream.
00:19:56Single pat of butter.
00:19:58The microwave cordon bleu hobby kit.
00:20:01Shampoo-conditioner combos.
00:20:03Sample-package mouthwash. Tiny bars of soap.
00:20:08The people I meet on each flight,
00:20:10they're single-serving friends.
00:20:13Between takeoff and landing, we have our time together.
00:20:16That's all we get.
00:20:23On a long enough time line, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.
00:20:27I was a recall coordinator. My job was to apply the formula.
00:20:31The infant went through the windshield.
00:20:33A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60mph.
00:20:38The rear differential locks up.
00:20:41The teenager's braces are stuck to the ashtray.
00:20:43Might make a good anti-smoking ad.
00:20:46The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside.
00:20:49Now, should we initiate a recall?
00:20:52The father must have been huge.
00:20:54See where the fat burned to the seat? The polyester shirt?
00:20:57Very modern art.
00:20:59Take the number of vehicles in the field, A.
00:21:02Multiply it by the probable rate of failure, B.
00:21:05Multiply the result by the average out-of-court settlement, C.
00:21:09A x B x C
00:21:11equals X.
00:21:13If X is less than the cost of a recall,
00:21:16we don't do one.
00:21:18Are there a lot of these kinds of accidents?
00:21:21You wouldn't believe.
00:21:24Which car company do you work for?
00:21:27A major one.
00:21:32Every time the plane banked too sharply on takeoff or landing,
00:21:36I prayed for a crash or a midair collision.
00:21:50Life insurance pays off triple if you die on a business trip.
00:21:57"If you are seated in an emergency exit row
00:22:00and would be unable or unwilling to perform the duties
00:22:04listed on the safety card, please ask a flight attendant to reseat you."
00:22:10It's a lot of responsibility.
00:22:12Wanna switch seats?
00:22:14No. I'm not sure I'm the man for that particularjob.
00:22:18An exit-door procedure at 30,000ft.
00:22:22The illusion of safety.
00:22:25Yeah. I guess so.
00:22:27You know why they put oxygen masks on planes?
00:22:30- So you can breathe. - Oxygen gets you high.
00:22:35In a catastrophic emergency, you take giant panic breaths.
00:22:39Suddenly you become euphoric, docile.
00:22:42You accept your fate.
00:22:45It's all right here.
00:22:47Emergency water landing, 600mph.
00:22:50Blank faces. Calm as Hindu cows.
00:22:56That's an interesting theory.
00:23:01- What do you do? - What do you mean?
00:23:03What do you do for a living?
00:23:05Why? So you can pretend you're interested?
00:23:12You have a kind of sick desperation in your laugh.
00:23:18We have the exact same briefcase.
00:23:23- Sorry? - I make and I sell soap.
00:23:27The yardstick of civilization.
00:23:30And this is how I met...
00:23:32Tyler Durden.
00:23:34Did 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.
00:23:42One can make all kinds of explosives with simple household items.
00:23:46- Really? - If one was so inclined.
00:23:54Tyler, 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.
00:24:05Thank you.
00:24:07How's it working out for you?
00:24:09- What? - Being clever?
00:24:14Keep it up, then. Right up.
00:24:18A question of etiquette.
00:24:21As I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?
00:24:31How I came to live with Tyler is...
00:24:33Airlines 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.
00:24:53But when a suitcase vibrates,
00:24:55the throwers have got to call the police.
00:24:58- My suitcase was vibrating? - Nine times out of ten
00:25:02it's an electric razor.
00:25:04But... every once in a while
00:25:09it's a dildo.
00:25:12It's company policy never to imply ownership in the event of a dildo.
00:25:16We have to use the indefinite article, a dildo, never
00:25:20your dildo.
00:25:22I don't own...
00:25:27I had everything in that suitcase. My CK shirts.
00:25:30My DKNYshoes. My AX ties.
00:25:35Never mind.
00:25:39Hey! That's my car!
00:25:48Home was a condo on the 15th floor
00:25:50of a filing cabinet for widows and professionals.
00:25:53The walls were solid concrete.
00:25:56A foot of concrete is important
00:25:58when your next-door neighbor has to watch game shows at full volume.
00:26:02Or when a blast of debris that used to be your personal effects
00:26:06blows out of your windows and sails flaming into the night.
00:26:17I suppose these things happen.
00:26:32There's... nothing up there.
00:26:34You can't go into the unit. Police orders.
00:26:46Do you have somebody you can call?
00:26:49How embarrassing.
00:26:51A houseful of condiments and no food.
00:27:03The police later told me the pilot light might have gone out
00:27:08letting out just a little bit of gas.
00:27:11That gas could have filled the condo.
00:27:141700 square feet with high ceilings for days and days.
00:27:25Then the refrigerator's compressor could have clicked on.
00:27:35I can hear you breathing...
00:27:46If you ask me now, I couldn't tell you why I called him.
00:28:33- Hello? - Who's this?
00:28:38- Tyler? - Who is this?
00:28:41We met... We met on the airplane.
00:28:44We had the same suitcase?
00:28:46The clever guy?
00:28:48Oh, yeah. Right.
00:28:53I 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.
00:29:02So what's up?
00:29:07You're not gonna believe this.
00:29:11You know, it could be worse.
00:29:14A woman could cut off your penis while you sleep and toss it out of a car.
00:29:18There's always that. I don't know.
00:29:22When you buy furniture, you tell yourself, that's it.
00:29:25That's the last sofa I'll need.
00:29:27Whatever happens, that sofa problem is handled.
00:29:30I had it all. I had a stereo that was very decent.
00:29:33A wardrobe that was getting very respectable.
00:29:37I was close to being complete.
00:29:39- Shit, man. Now it's all gone. - All gone.
00:29:42All gone.
00:29:46Do you know what a duvet is?
00:29:48- A comforter. - It's a blanket.
00:29:51Just a blanket. Why do guys like you and I know what a duvet is?
00:29:55Is this essential to our survival in the hunter-gatherer sense?
00:30:01What are we, then?
00:30:03I dunno. Consumers.
00:30:06Right. We're consumers.
00:30:08We are by-products of a lifestyle obsession.
00:30:11Murder, crime, poverty. These things don't concern me.
00:30:15What concerns me are celebrity magazines,
00:30:19television with 500 channels,
00:30:21some guy's name on my underwear. Rogaine.
00:30:24Viagra. Olestra.
00:30:26- Martha Stewart. - Fuck Martha Stewart.
00:30:29She's polishing the brass on the Titanic. It's all going down.
00:30:33So fuck off with your sofa units and Strinne green stripe patterns.
00:30:36I say never be complete.
00:30:40I say stop being perfect.
00:30:42I say let's evolve.
00:30:44Let the chips fall where they may.
00:30:48But that's me, and I could be wrong.
00:30:51Maybe it's a terrible tragedy.
00:30:53It's just stuff. Not a tragedy...
00:30:55You did lose a lot of versatile solutions for modern living.
00:30:59Fuck, you're right. I don't smoke.
00:31:05My insurance is probably gonna cover it, so...
00:31:14The things you own end up owning you.
00:31:20Do what you like, man.
00:31:23Oh, it's late.
00:31:25- Hey, thanks for the beer. - Yeah, man.
00:31:28I should find a hotel.
00:31:35- A hotel? - Yeah.
00:31:37- Just ask, man. - What are you talking about?
00:31:40Oh, God. Three pitchers of beer and you still can't ask.
00:31:47You called me because you needed a place to stay.
00:31:49- Oh, hey. No, no, no. - Yes, you did. So just ask.
00:31:53Cut the foreplay and just ask, man.
00:31:57Would... Would that be a problem?
00:32:00Is it a problem for you to ask?
00:32:03- Can I stay at your place? - Yeah.
00:32:13- I want you to do me a favor. - Yeah, sure.
00:32:16I want you to hit me as hard as you can.
00:32:20I want you to hit me as hard as you can.
00:32:24Let me tell you a little bit about Tyler Durden.
00:32:27Tyler was a night person.
00:32:30While the rest of us slept, he worked.
00:32:32He had one part-time job as a projectionist.
00:32:35A movie doesn't come all on one big reel. It comes on a few.
00:32:38Someone has to switch the projectors at the exact moment
00:32:42that one reel ends and the next one begins.
00:32:46You can see little dots come into the upper right corner of the screen.
00:32:50In the industry, we call them cigarette burns.
00:32:52That's the cue for a changeover.
00:32:54He flips the projectors, movie keeps going and the audience has no idea.
00:32:59Why would anyone want this shitjob?
00:33:02Because it affords him interesting opportunities.
00:33:05Like splicing a frame of pornography into family films.
00:33:09So when the snooty cat and the courageous dog with the celebrity voices first meet,
00:33:14that's when you'll catch a flash of Tyler's contribution to the film.
00:33:25Nobody knows that they saw it but they did.
00:33:27Nice, big cock.
00:33:35Even a hummingbird couldn't catch Tyler at work.
00:33:43Tyler also works sometimes as a banquet waiter at the luxurious Pressman hotel.
00:33:53He was the guerrilla terrorist of the food service industry.
00:33:57Do not watch. I cannot go when you watch.
00:33:59Apart from seasoning the lobster bisque, he farted on meringues,
00:34:04and as for the cream of mushroom soup...
00:34:06Go ahead, tell 'em.
00:34:08You get the idea.
00:34:11- You just want me to hit you? - Come on. Do me this one favor.
00:34:14- Why? - 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!
00:34:21I don't wanna die without any scars.
00:34:24- Come on. Hit me, before I lose my nerve. - Oh, God. This is crazy.
00:34:28So go crazy! Let it rip.
00:34:31- I don't know about this. - I don't either.
00:34:33Who gives a shit? No-one's watching. What do you care?
00:34:37This is crazy. You want me to hit you?!
00:34:39That's right.
00:34:41- Where? Like, in the face? - Surprise me.
00:34:47This is so fucking stupid.
00:35:02He 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.
00:35:09No, that was perfect.
00:35:24No, it's all right.
00:35:27It really hurts.
00:35:32Hit me again.
00:35:34No, you hit me. Come on!
00:35:53We should do this again sometime.
00:36:09- Where's your car? - What car?
00:36:21I don't know how Tyler found that house
00:36:24but he said he'd been there for a year.
00:36:26It looked like it was waiting to be torn down.
00:36:29Most of the windows were boarded up.
00:36:32There was no lock on the front door from when the police, or whoever, kicked it in.
00:36:37The stairs were ready to collapse.
00:36:39I didn't know if he owned it or was squatting.
00:36:42Neither would have surprised me.
00:36:45Yep. That's you.
00:36:47That's me. That's the toilet. Good?
00:36:50Yeah, thanks.
00:36:52What a shithole.
00:36:54Nothing worked.
00:37:00Turning on one light meant another light in the house went out.
00:37:04There were no neighbors. Just warehouses and a paper mill.
00:37:08That fart smell of steam. The hamster-cage smell of wood chips.
00:37:13What have we here?
00:37:31- Hey, guys. - Hey.
00:37:44Every time it rained, we had to kill the power.
00:37:48By the end of the first month, I didn't miss TV.
00:37:52I didn't even mind the warm, stale refrigerator.
00:38:08Can I be next?
00:38:14All right, man.
00:38:17Lose the tie.
00:38:23At night, Tyler and I were alone for half a mile in every direction.
00:38:32Rain trickled down through the plaster and the light fixtures.
00:38:36Everything wooden swelled and shrank.
00:38:39Everywhere were rusted nails to snag your elbow on.
00:38:43The previous occupant had been a shut-in.
00:38:45Hey, man. What are you reading?
00:38:47Listen to this. It's an article written by an organ in the first person.
00:38:52"I am Jack's medulla oblongata. Without me,
00:38:55Jack could not regulate his heart rate or breathing."
00:38:58There'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."
00:39:12After fighting, everything else in life got the volume turned down.
00:39:19- You could deal with anything. - Have you finished those reports?
00:39:28If you could choose, who would you fight?
00:39:30I'd fight my boss, probably.
00:39:35- Yeah, why? Who would you fight? - I'd fight my dad.
00:39:38I don't know my dad.
00:39:40I mean, I know him, but...
00:39:42He left when I was like, six years old.
00:39:45Married this other woman and had some other kids.
00:39:48He did this every six years.
00:39:50- He changes city and starts a new family. - Fucker's setting up franchises!
00:39:55My dad never went to college.
00:39:57- So it was real important that I go. - That sounds familiar.
00:40:01So I graduate. Call him up long-distance and say, "Dad, now what?"
00:40:06- He says, "Get ajob." - Same here.
00:40:08Now I'm 25. Make my yearly call again.
00:40:11"Dad, now what?"
00:40:13He says, "I dunno. Get married."
00:40:15You can't get married.
00:40:19I'm a 30-year-old boy.
00:40:21We're a generation of men raised by women.
00:40:24I'm wondering if another woman is really the answer we need.
00:40:34Most of the week, we were Ozzie and Harriet.
00:40:38But every Saturday night, we were finding something out.
00:40:43We were finding out more and more that we were not alone.
00:40:50It used to be that when I came home angry or depressed, I'd just clean my condo.
00:40:55Polish my Scandinavian furniture.
00:40:57I should have been looking for a new condo or haggling with my insurance company.
00:41:02I should have been upset about my nice flaming little shit.
00:41:06But I wasn't.
00:41:08The premise of cybernetting an office is make things more efficient.
00:41:12Monday mornings, I just thought about next week.
00:41:15Can I get the icon in cornflower blue?
00:41:19Efficiency is priority No.1, people.
00:41:23Because waste is a thief.
00:41:25I showed this to my man here. You liked it, didn't you?
00:41:32You can swallow a pint of blood before you get sick.
00:41:37It was right in everyone's face.
00:41:39Tyler and I just made it visible.
00:41:42It was on the tip of everyone's tongue.
00:41:44Tyler and I just gave it a name.
00:41:58Come on, you've gotta go home!
00:42:22Turn off the jukebox. Lock the back.
00:42:45Every week, Tyler gave the rules that he and I decided.
00:42:52Welcome to Fight Club.
00:42:56The first rule of Fight Club is
00:42:58you do not talk about Fight Club.
00:43:01The second rule of Fight Club is
00:43:04you do not talk about Fight Club!
00:43:07Third rule of Fight Club.
00:43:10Someone yells stop, goes limp, taps out,
00:43:12the fight is over. Fourth rule.
00:43:15Only two guys to a fight.
00:43:18Fifth rule.
00:43:20One fight at a time, fellas.
00:43:22Sixth rule. No shirts. No shoes.
00:43:25Seventh rule. Fights will go on as long as they have to.
00:43:31And the eighth and final rule.
00:43:34If this is your first night at Fight Club
00:43:38you have to fight.
00:43:44This kid from work, Ricky,
00:43:46couldn't remember whether you ordered pens with blue ink or black.
00:43:51But Ricky was a god for ten minutes
00:43:53when he trounced the maitre d' of a local food court.
00:43:58Sometimes, all you could hear were the flat, hard, packing sounds over the yelling.
00:44:07Or the wet choke when someone gasped and sprayed...
00:44:13You weren't alive anywhere like you were there.
00:44:16But Fight Club only exists in the hours between when Fight Club starts and ends.
00:44:21Even if I could tell someone they had a good fight,
00:44:24I wouldn't be talking to the same man.
00:44:27Who you were in Fight Club is not who you were outside of it.
00:44:30A guy came to Fight Club for the first time. His ass was a wad of cookie dough.
00:44:35After a few weeks, he was carved out of wood.
00:44:39If you could fight any celebrity, who would you fight?
00:44:42- Alive or dead? - Doesn't matter. Who'd be tough?
00:44:46Hemingway. You?
00:44:50Shatner. I'd fight William Shatner.
00:44:54We all started seeing things differently.
00:44:59Everywhere we went, we were sizing things up.
00:45:05I felt sorry for guys packed into gyms,
00:45:08trying to look like how Calvin Klein or Tommy Hilfiger said they should.
00:45:13Is that what a man looks like?
00:45:16Oh, self-improvement is masturbation.
00:45:19Now, self-destruction...
00:45:21Excuse me.
00:45:57Fight Club wasn't about winning or losing.
00:46:01It wasn't about words.
00:46:05The hysterical shouting was in tongues
00:46:08like at a Pentecostal Church.
00:46:15- Is that it? - Stop!
00:46:17When the fight was over, nothing was solved.
00:46:20But nothing mattered.
00:46:25Afterwards, we all felt saved.
00:46:29Hey, man. How about next week?
00:46:31How about next month?!
00:46:33Irvine, you're in the middle.
00:46:35New guy, you too.
00:46:39Sometimes, Tyler spoke for me.
00:46:41He fell down some stairs.
00:46:44I fell down some stairs.
00:46:48Fight Club became the reason to cut your hair short or trim your fingernails.
00:46:53OK. Any historical figure.
00:46:55I'd fight Gandhi.
00:46:58Good answer.
00:47:00- How about you? - Lincoln.
00:47:05Big guy, big reach. Skinny guys fight till they're burger.
00:47:12Hey, even the Mona Lisa's falling apart.
00:47:26Where have you been the last eight weeks?
00:47:33- How did you find me? - You left a forwarding number.
00:47:36I haven't seen you at any support groups.
00:47:39We split 'em up. That was the idea. Remember?
00:47:42Yeah, but you haven't been going to yours.
00:47:45- How do you know? - I cheated.
00:47:49I found a new one.
00:47:51- Really? - It's for men only.
00:47:53Like the testicle thing?
00:47:59Look, this is a bad time.
00:48:01I've been going to Debtors Anonymous.
00:48:03- They're really fucked-up people... - I'm on my way out.
00:48:07Me too. I've got a stomach full of Xanax.
00:48:09I took what was left of a bottle.
00:48:12It might have been too much.
00:48:14Picture Marla Singer throw herself around her crummy apartment.
00:48:18This isn't a for-real suicide thing. This is probably a cry-for-help thing.
00:48:22So you're staying in tonight, then?
00:48:25Do you wanna wait and hear me describe death?
00:48:28Do you wanna listen and see if my spirit can use a phone?
00:48:35Have you ever heard a death rattle before?
00:49:04Tyler's door was closed. I'd been here for two months and his door was never closed.
00:49:14You won't believe this dream I had last night.
00:49:17I can hardly believe anything about last night.
00:49:30What are you doing here?
00:49:37This is my house. What are you doing here?
00:49:42Fuck you!
00:49:58Oh, you've got some fucked-up friends!
00:50:02Limber, though.
00:50:04Silly cooze.
00:50:07I come in last night. Phone's off the hook.
00:50:10Guess who's on the other end?
00:50:12I knew the story before he told me.
00:50:16Have you ever heard a death rattle before?
00:50:20Do you think it'll live up to its name?
00:50:23Or will it just be a death hairball?
00:50:30Prepare to evacuate soul.
00:50:36nine,... eight...
00:50:39How could Tyler, of all people,
00:50:41think it was a bad thing that Marla Singer was about to die?
00:50:49Hang on.
00:50:57You got here fast.
00:51:01Did I call you?
00:51:13The mattress is all sealed in slippery plastic.
00:51:20Oh, don't worry. It's not a threat to you.
00:51:25Oh, fuck!
00:51:27Somebody called the cops.
00:51:41- Hey, where's 513? - End of the hall.
00:51:45The girl who lives there used to be a charming, lovely girl.
00:51:49She 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!
00:52:07If I fall asleep,
00:52:09I'm done for.
00:52:14You're gonna have to keep me up
00:52:16all night.
00:52:20He was obviously able to handle it.
00:52:23- You know what I mean, you fucked her. - No, I didn't.
00:52:27- Never? - No.
00:52:30You're not into her, are you?
00:52:32No! God, not at all.
00:52:34I am Jack's raging bile duct.
00:52:37Are you sure? You can tell me.
00:52:39Believe me, I'm sure.
00:52:41- Put a gun to my head and spray my brains. - That's good.
00:52:44She's a predator posing as a house pet. Stay away.
00:52:49The shit that came out of this woman's mouth, I had never heard!
00:52:52My God.
00:52:54I haven't been fucked like that since grade school.
00:52:58How could Tyler not go for that?
00:53:00The other night, he was splicing sex organs into Cinderella.
00:53:04Marla doesn't need a lover, just a caseworker.
00:53:07Or a wash. This isn't love, it's sport fucking.
00:53:09She invaded my support groups and now my home.
00:53:12Hey, hey. Sit down.
00:53:19Now, listen. I can't have you talking to her about me.
00:53:22Why would I...
00:53:24Say 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? - OK.
00:53:32- Yeah, I promise. - Promise?
00:53:34- I just said, I promise! What... - That's three times you promised.
00:53:39If only I had wasted a few minutes and gone to watch Marla Singer die,
00:53:43none of this would have happened.
00:53:50Harder, yes! Oh, harder, harder!
00:54:00I could have moved to another room.
00:54:04On the third floor where I might not have heard them.
00:54:07But I didn't.
00:54:34- What are you doing? - Just going to bed.
00:54:38Wanna 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.
00:54:50I became the calm little center of the world.
00:54:54I was the Zen master.
00:55:01I wrote little haiku poems.
00:55:04I e-mailed them to everyone.
00:55:06Is that your blood?
00:55:10Some of it, yeah.
00:55:12You can't smoke in here.
00:55:15Take the rest of the day off.
00:55:17Come back Monday with some clean clothes.
00:55:20Get yourself together.
00:55:22I 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."
00:55:33You give up the condo life, give up all your flaming worldly possessions,
00:55:38move to a dilapidated house in a toxic waste area,
00:55:42and you have to come home to this.
00:55:56- Hello. - This is Detective Stern with the Arson Unit.
00:56:00We have some new information about the incident at your former condo.
00:56:05I don't know if you're aware, but someone sprayed Freon into your front-door lock.
00:56:10They used a chisel to shatter the cylinder.
00:56:13No, I wasn't aware of that.
00:56:15I am Jack's cold sweat.
00:56:17Does this sound strange to you?
00:56:20Yes, sir, strange. Very strange.
00:56:23- The dynamite - Dynamite?
00:56:25left a residue of ammonium oxalate potassium perchloride.
00:56:28- Do you know what this means? - No, what does it mean?
00:56:31It means it was home-made.
00:56:33I'm sorry. This is just coming as quite a shock to me, sir.
00:56:38Whoever 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.
00:56:49Tell him the liberator who destroyed my property realigned my perceptions.
00:56:53Excuse me. Are you there?
00:56:55I am listening. It's hard to know what to make of this.
00:56:58Have you recently made enemies who might have access to home-made dynamite?
00:57:03- Enemies? - Reject civilization,
00:57:05especially 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.
00:57:13Look, nobody takes this more seriously than me.
00:57:16That condo was my life. OK?
00:57:19I loved every stick of furniture in that place.
00:57:23That 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!
00:57:33Tell 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?
00:57:42No. I may need to talk to you, so you let me know if you're gonna leave town.
00:57:46- OK? - OK.
00:57:51Except for their humping, Tyler and Marla were never in the same room.
00:57:56My parents pulled this exact same act for years.
00:57:59The condom is the glass slipper of our generation.
00:58:03You slip one on when you meet a stranger.
00:58:06You... dance all night.
00:58:08Then you throw it away.
00:58:10The condom, I mean. Not the stranger.
00:58:21I got this dress at a thrift store for $1.
00:58:23It was worth every penny.
00:58:25It's a bridesmaid's dress.
00:58:28Someone loved it intensely
00:58:32for one day.
00:58:34Then tossed it.
00:58:38Like a Christmas tree.
00:58:40So special.
00:58:46It's on the side of the road.
00:58:48Tinsel still clinging to it.
00:58:52Like a sex crime victim.
00:58:55Underwear inside out.
00:58:57- Bound with electrical tape. - Well then, it suits you.
00:59:01You can borrow it sometime.
00:59:11Get rid of her.
00:59:14- What? You get rid of her! - Don't mention me.
00:59:17I 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.
00:59:34Gotta get off
00:59:36Thanks. Bye.
00:59:38Gotta get off of this merry-go-round
00:59:45Gonna get, need to get...
00:59:49Gotta get...
00:59:53You kids!
00:59:56Why do you still waste time with her?
00:59:59I'll say this about Marla.
01:00:01At least she's trying to hit bottom.
01:00:04And I'm not?
01:00:05Feathers up your butt do not make you a chicken.
01:00:08What are we doing tonight?
01:00:11Tonight... we make soap.
01:00:15To make soap, first we render fat.
01:00:37The salt balance has to be just right
01:00:39so the best fat for soap comes from humans.
01:00:42- Wait, what is this place? - A liposuction clinic.
01:00:54Pay dirt!
01:00:56Richest, creamiest fat in the world. Fat of the land!
01:01:05No! Don't pull it, don't pull it!
01:01:13- Oh, God! - Give me another one.
01:01:22As the fat renders, the tallows float to the surface.
01:01:25Like in Boy Scouts.
01:01:27- It's hard to imagine you as a Boy Scout. - Keep stirring.
01:01:34Once the tallow hardens, you skim off a layer of glycerin.
01:01:37Add nitric acid, you've got nitroglycerin.
01:01:40Then add sodium nitrate and sawdust, you've got dynamite.
01:01:44Yeah, with enough soap, one could blow up just about anything.
01:01:48Tyler was full of useful information.
01:01:50People found clothes got cleaner when washed at a certain point in the river.
01:01:54- You know why? - No.
01:01:59Human sacrifices were once made on the hills above this river.
01:02:03Bodies burnt. Water permeated the ashes to create lye.
01:02:06This is lye. The crucial ingredient.
01:02:08Once it mixed with the melted body fat, a white soapy discharge crept into the river.
01:02:13May I see your hand, please?
01:02:21What is this?
01:02:24This is a chemical burn.
01:02:27It will hurt more than any burn and it will leave a scar.
01:02:30Meditation worked for cancer, it could work now.
01:02:34- Don't shut the pain out. - Oh, God!
01:02:37The first soap was made from heroes' ashes, like the first monkey shot into space.
01:02:42Without pain or sacrifice, we would have nothing.
01:02:45I tried not to think of the word searing of flesh.
01:02:48Stop it! This is your pain, this is your burning hand.
01:02:51I'm going to my cave to find my power animal.
01:02:54No! 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.
01:03:05It's the greatest moment of your life, and you're off somewhere else!
01:03:09I am not!
01:03:11Shut up! Our fathers were our models for God.
01:03:14If our fathers bailed, what does that tell you about God?
01:03:18Listen to me. You have to consider the possibility that God does not like you.
01:03:23He never wanted you. In all probability, He hates you.
01:03:27This is not the worst thing that can happen. We don't need Him!
01:03:31- I agree! - Fuck damnation, fuck redemption.
01:03:34We 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!
01:03:46First, you have to give up.
01:03:48First, you have to know, not fear,
01:03:51know that some day, you're gonna die.
01:03:54You don't know how this feels!
01:04:00It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.
01:04:24You're one step closer to hitting the bottom.
01:04:30Tyler sold his soap to department stores at $20 a bar.
01:04:33God knows what they charged.
01:04:35- This is the best soap. - Why, thank you, Susan.
01:04:38It was beautiful.
01:04:41We were selling rich women their own fat asses back to them.
01:04:45He was wearing his yellow tie.
01:04:48I 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."
01:04:54I'm half-asleep again. I must have left it in the copy machine.
01:04:57"The second rule..." Is this yours?
01:05:02Pretend you're me. Make a managerial decision.
01:05:05You find this. What would you do?
01:05:12Well, I gotta tell you,
01:05:15I'd be very, very careful who you talk to about that.
01:05:18Because the person who wrote that is dangerous.
01:05:22And this button-down, Oxford-cloth psycho might just snap
01:05:26and then stalk from office to office
01:05:29with an Armalite AR10 carbine gas-powered semiautomatic weapon,
01:05:34pumping round after round into colleagues and co-workers.
01:05:40This might be someone you've known for years.
01:05:43Someone very, very close to you.
01:05:46Tyler's words coming out of my mouth.
01:05:51And I used to be such a nice guy.
01:05:53Or 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.
01:06:05Will 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.
01:06:22I don't know about this, Marla.
01:06:26She didn't call Tyler. I'm neutral in her book.
01:06:32That's nice. Taking food to Mrs Haniver and Mrs Raines.
01:06:36Where are they, exactly?
01:06:38Tragically, they're dead. I'm alive and I'm in poverty. Want any?
01:06:43- No, no. - I got one for you.
01:06:45Thanks for the thought.
01:06:48What happened to your hand?
01:06:51Oh, nothing.
01:06:53Right there?
01:06:56- Feel anything? - No.
01:06:59Well, make sure.
01:07:01OK, I'm pretty sure.
01:07:03You feel nothing?
01:07:05No, nothing.
01:07:09Well, that's a relief. Thank you.
01:07:13- No problem. - I wish I could return the favor.
01:07:17Breast cancer doesn't run in my family.
01:07:19- I could check your prostate. - I think I'm OK.
01:07:22Well, thanks, anyway.
01:07:30- Are we done? - Yeah, we're done.
01:07:32See you... around.
01:07:56It's me! Bob!
01:07:59Hey, 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?
01:08:21The first rule is, I'm not supposed to talk about it.
01:08:25And the second rule is
01:08:28I'm not supposed to talk about it.
01:08:30- And the third rule is... - Bob, Bob. I'm a member.
01:08:34Look at my face, Bob.
01:08:38That's fucking... fucking great.
01:08:40- I've never seen you there. - I go Tuesdays and Thursdays.
01:08:44- I go Saturday. - Congratulations.
01:08:48Yeah, hey, to both of us, right?
01:08:51Have you heard about the guy that invented it?
01:08:54- Yeah, actually... - I hear all kinds of things.
01:08:57Supposedly, he was born in a mental institution
01:09:00and he sleeps only one hour a night.
01:09:04He's a great man.
01:09:07Do you know about Tyler Durden?
01:09:35I didn't hurt you, did I?
01:09:37Actually, you did.
01:09:39Thank you for this.
01:09:41Thank you, thank you, thank you.
01:09:44Fight Club.
01:09:46This was mine and Tyler's gift.
01:09:48Our gift to the world.
01:09:50I look around, I look around, I see a lot of new faces.
01:09:55Shut up!
01:09:58Which means a lot of people have been breaking the first two rules of Fight Club.
01:10:11I see in Fight Club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived.
01:10:15I see all this potential.
01:10:17And I see it squandered.
01:10:20Goddamn it, an entire generation pumping gas.
01:10:24Waiting tables.
01:10:26Slaves with white collars.
01:10:31Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes.
01:10:34Working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need.
01:10:41We're the middle children of history.
01:10:43No purpose or place.
01:10:46We have no Great War.
01:10:48No Great Depression.
01:10:52Our great war is a spiritual war.
01:10:55Our great depression is our lives.
01:11:01We've all been raised on television to believe
01:11:04that one day we'd be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars.
01:11:08But we won't.
01:11:10We're slowly learning that fact.
01:11:13And we're very, very pissed off.
01:11:20- First rule of Fight Club is, do not talk...
01:11:30Who are you?
01:11:32- Who am I? - Yeah.
01:11:35There's a sign on the front that says Lou's Tavern.
01:11:39I'm fucking Lou. Who the fuck are you?
01:11:43Tyler Durden.
01:11:48Who told you motherfuckers that you could use my place?
01:11:52We have a deal worked out with Irvine.
01:11:54Irvine's at home with a broken collarbone.
01:11:57He 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?
01:12:08It is, actually.
01:12:10Look, stupid fuck!
01:12:12- I want everybody out of here right now. - Hey!
01:12:15You should join our club.
01:12:18Did you hear what I just said?
01:12:20You and your friend.
01:12:24You hear me now?
01:12:28No, I didn't quite catch that, Lou.
01:12:36Still not getting it.
01:12:39OK, OK, I got it.
01:12:41I got it, I got it. Shit, I lost it.
01:12:45Back! All of you!
01:12:49Everybody back!
01:12:58Ah, Lou!
01:13:00Come on, man! We really like this place.
01:13:13- That's right, Lou. Get it out. - Shut the fuck up.
01:13:16Oh, yeah!
01:13:23Is that fucking funny?
01:13:35Fucking guy is a loony, I'm telling you.
01:13:44- You don't know where I've been, Lou. - Oh, my God!
01:13:47You don't know where I've been!
01:13:53Please let us keep it, Lou! Please, Lou!
01:13:56Fucking use the basement! Christ!
01:13:59I want your word, Lou! I want your word!
01:14:02On my mother's eyes.
01:14:13Thanks, Lou.
01:14:16You too, big guy.
01:14:22We'll see you next week.
01:14:40This week, each one of you has a homework assignment.
01:14:43You're gonna go out. You're gonna start a fight with a total stranger.
01:14:52You're gonna start a fight
01:14:54and you're gonna lose.
01:14:58Excellent choice, sir.
01:15:02Hey! Watch out, jackass! Come on!
01:15:06Now, this is not as easy as it sounds.
01:15:11Son of a bitch!
01:15:13Most people, normal people, do just about anything to avoid a fight.
01:15:19Excuse me!
01:15:21You sprayed me with your hose. That's not necessary...
01:15:25Jay! Go call 911!
01:15:30Put the hose down.
01:15:32Stop it! Stop it!
01:15:53We need to talk.
01:16:00Where to begin?
01:16:02With your constant absenteeism?
01:16:04With your unpresentable appearance?
01:16:07You're up for review.
01:16:09I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.
01:16:12- What? - Let's pretend.
01:16:14You're the Department of Transportation, OK?
01:16:17Someone informs you that this company
01:16:21installs front-seat mounting brackets that failed collision tests,
01:16:25brake linings that fail after 1,000 miles,
01:16:29and fuel injectors that explode and burn people alive.
01:16:33What then?
01:16:35Are you threatening me?
01:16:38- No... - Get the fuck out of here. You're fired!
01:16:41I have a better solution. Keep me on the payroll as an outside consultant.
01:16:45In exchange for my salary,
01:16:47my job will be never to tell people these things that I know.
01:16:51I don't even have to come into the office. I can do this job from home.
01:16:57Who... Who the fuck do you think you are, you crazy little shit?
01:17:06- Security! - I am Jack's smirking revenge.
01:17:19What the hell are you doing?
01:17:30That hurt.
01:17:34Why would you do that?
01:17:36Oh, my God! No! Please stop!
01:17:49What are you doing?
01:17:52Oh, God, no! Please! No!
01:17:54For some reason, I thought of my first fight, with Tyler.
01:18:24Under and behind and inside everything this man took for granted,
01:18:29something horrible had been growing.
01:18:33Give me the paychecks, like I asked, and you won't ever see me again.
01:18:38Then, at our most excellent moment together...
01:18:44Thank God! Please don't hit me again.
01:18:47Telephone, computer,
01:18:49fax machine, 52 weekly paychecks and 48 airline flight coupons.
01:18:54We now had corporate sponsorship.
01:18:57This is how Tyler and I were able to have Fight Club every night of the week.
01:19:05Now, the center of Fight Club became the two men fighting.
01:19:08The leader walked through the crowd, out in the darkness.
01:19:14Tyler was now involved in a lawsuit with the Pressman Hotel
01:19:18over the urine content of their soup.
01:19:26I am Jack's wasted life.
01:19:36Thank you, sir.
01:19:40Tyler dreamed up new homework assignments.
01:19:43He handed them out in sealed envelopes.
01:20:25- There's a Fight Club up in Delaware City. - Yeah, I heard.
01:20:30There's one in Penns Grove too.
01:20:33Bob 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?
01:21:36Human sacrifice.
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.
01:21:47On a long enough time line,
01:21:49the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.
01:21:53What are you doing? Come on!
01:21:55Hands behind your back. Give me your wallet.
01:22:00Raymond K Hessel. 1320 SE Banning, Apartment A.
01:22:04- Small, cramped basement apartment? - How did you know?
01:22:07They give shitty apartments letters.
01:22:10Raymond! You're going to die.
01:22:15Is that your mom and dad? They're gonna have to call the kindly doctor.
01:22:19Pick up your dental records. Know why?
01:22:21- There'll be nothing left of your face. - Oh, come on!
01:22:25An expired community college student ID. What did you study, Raymond?
01:22:29- S... S... Stuff. - Stuff?
01:22:32Were the midterms hard?
01:22:35- I asked you what you studied! - Biology, mostly.
01:22:38- Why? - I don't know.
01:22:42What did you wanna be, Raymond K Hessel?!
01:22:46The question, Raymond, was what did you want to be?
01:22:52Answer him, Raymond, Jesus!
01:22:54- Veterinarian. Veterinarian. - Animals.
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...
01:23:05You'd rather die here, on your knees, in the back of a convenience store?
01:23:09Please, no.
01:23:15I'm keeping your license.
01:23:18Gonna check in on you. I know where you live.
01:23:21If you're not working to be a veterinarian in six weeks,
01:23:24you will be dead.
01:23:28Now run on home.
01:23:35Run, Forrest, run!
01:23:39I feel ill.
01:23:42Imagine how he feels.
01:23:44Come on, this isn't funny!
01:23:46What the fuck was the point of that?!
01:23:49Tomorrow will be the most beautiful day of Raymond K Hessel's life.
01:23:53His breakfast will taste better than any meal you and I have ever tasted.
01:23:59You had to give it to him.
01:24:01- Come on. - He had a plan.
01:24:03And it started to make sense in a Tyler-sort of way.
01:24:07No fear. No distractions.
01:24:09The ability to let that which does not matter
01:24:12truly slide.
01:24:28You are not your job.
01:24:32You're not how much money you have in the bank.
01:24:37You're not the car you drive.
01:24:39You're not the contents of your wallet.
01:24:42You're not your fucking khakis.
01:24:47You are the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.
01:25:00I'll be out of your way in a sec.
01:25:03You don't have to go.
01:25:10No, I mean... It's OK.
01:25:22Are you still going to groups?
01:25:29Chloe's dead.
01:25:31Wow, Chloe.
01:25:33When did that happen?
01:25:36Do you care?
01:25:38I dunno. I haven't thought about it in a while.
01:25:41Yeah, well...
01:25:44It was the smart move on her part.
01:25:51What are you getting out of all this?
01:25:56I mean, all this. Why do you keep...
01:25:59Is this making you happy?
01:26:03Yeah, well, sometimes.
01:26:06I don't know. I don't understand.
01:26:09Why does a weaker person need to latch on to a strong person?
01:26:12What is... What is that?
01:26:14What do you get out of it?
01:26:18No... That's not the same thing at all.
01:26:20It's totally different with us.
01:26:25What 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!
01:26:33Don't change the subject! I want to talk about this.
01:26:36- You're not talking about me, are you? - No.
01:26:38- What? - 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.
01:26:54My 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.
01:27:06Let go of me!
01:27:07- This conversation - This conversation
01:27:10- is over. - is over.
01:27:13I just can't win with you, can I?
01:27:26Hey, this is getting a little old!
01:27:29What is... What is all this?
01:27:31What do you think?
01:27:34Hey, why do we need bunk beds?
01:27:45Too young.
01:27:49What's all that?
01:27:51If the applicant is young, tell him he's too young.
01:27:54- Old, too old. Fat, too fat. - Applicant?
01:27:57If the applicant waits three days without food or shelter,
01:28:00he may enter and begin training.
01:28:02Training for what?
01:28:10You think this is a game?
01:28:12You're too young to train here, end of story.
01:28:15Quit wasting our time. Get the fuck out of here.
01:28:21Bad news, friend.
01:28:24It's not gonna happen.
01:28:26Sorry if there was a misunderstanding.
01:28:28It's not the end of the world.
01:28:30Just... go away.
01:28:35You're trespassing and I will have to call the police.
01:28:42Don't you look at me!
01:28:44You're never getting in this fucking house!
01:28:48Never. Now get the fuck off my porch! Get off my porch!
01:28:51Sooner or later, we all became what Tyler wanted us to be.
01:28:55I'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.
01:29:20All right.
01:29:32You're too old, fat man.
01:29:34Your tits are too big. Get the fuck off my porch.
01:29:45Bob! Bob!
01:30:03Like a monkey ready to be shot into space.
01:30:07Space monkey.
01:30:08Ready to sacrifice himself for the greater good.
01:30:18You are too fucking old, fatty!
01:30:21And you... You're too fucking
01:30:26Get out of here, the both of you!
01:30:29And so it went.
01:30:31Listen up, maggots.
01:30:33You are not special.
01:30:35You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake.
01:30:39You are the same decaying organic matter as everything else.
01:30:43Tyler built himself an army.
01:30:46We are the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.
01:30:49We are all part of the same compost heap.
01:30:54Why was Tyler Durden building an army?
01:30:57To what purpose?
01:31:00For what greater good?
01:31:05In Tyler we trusted.
01:31:13When he was like, "You are not yourjob",
01:31:16I was like, "Yeah!"
01:31:19Hey, what's all this?
01:31:27- What's going on? - We're celebrating.
01:31:29- What are we celebrating? - Go on.
01:31:36- Hey. - Let me get that for you.
01:31:43The same great taste, Pepsi.
01:31:50Investigators are here. The Police Commissioner has arrived.
01:31:54Could you tell us what you think has happened here?
01:31:57We believe this is one of many recent acts of vandalism in the city
01:32:02somehow related to underground boxing clubs.
01:32:05We will be coordinating a rigorous investigation.
01:32:10That was Police Commissioner Jacobs who just arrived on the scene
01:32:14- of a four-alarm fire that broke out... - She's hot.
01:32:19Back to you in the studio.
01:32:21- Yeah! - Yeah!
01:32:24- Holy shit! - Yeah!
01:32:34What the fuck did you guys do?
01:32:36Arson investigators are on the premises...
01:32:44Sir, the first rule of Project Mayhem is you do not ask questions, sir.
01:32:55The victory in the war against crime
01:32:57will not come overnight.
01:32:59It will take dedication and commitment and, most of all, cooperation.
01:33:04Streets are safer now. There is hope in the inner city. However...
01:33:09I gotta take a piss.
01:33:11These are the first steps in a long journey.
01:33:14That is why we have created Project Hope.
01:33:22Project Hope will be ajoint effort
01:33:25between the police and community leaders.
01:33:27It 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.
01:34:23Hi. You're gonna call off your rigorous investigation.
01:34:27You will publicly state there is no underground group or
01:34:30these guys are gonna take your balls.
01:34:33They'll send one to the New York Times and one to the LA Times.
01:34:39The people you are after are the people you depend on.
01:34:42We cook your meals. We haul your trash. We connect your calls.
01:34:46We drive your ambulances. We guard you while you sleep.
01:34:54Do not fuck with us.
01:35:04Ball check!
01:35:21Bob, you're this way.
01:35:24Let's go.
01:35:26I am Jack's inflamed sense of rejection.
01:36:21I felt like putting a bullet in every panda
01:36:24that wouldn't screw to save its species.
01:36:30I wanted to open the dump valves on oil tankers
01:36:33and smother those French beaches I'd never see.
01:36:39I wanted to breathe smoke.
01:36:59Where did you go, psycho boy?
01:37:03I felt like destroying something beautiful.
01:37:09Get him to a fucking hospital.
01:37:24Don't worry, Mr Durden. Airport parking. Long term.
01:37:29After you, Mr Durden.
01:37:32After you.
01:37:52- Something on your mind, dear? - No.
01:37:54Yeah, why wasn't I told about Project Mayhem?
01:37:58First rule of Project Mayhem is you do not ask questions.
01:38:01Why didn't you include me in the beginning?
01:38:03Fight Club was the beginning. Now it's left the basements and it's Project Mayhem.
01:38:09We 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?
01:38:17This does not belong to us. We are not special.
01:38:21Fuck that. You should have told me.
01:38:24Hey, Tyler!
01:38:28- Goddamn it, Tyler! - What do you want?!
01:38:31A statement of purpose? Should I e-mail you?
01:38:33- Oh... - You decide your level of involvement!
01:38:36I 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!
01:38:47Forget about what you think you know about life, friendship,
01:38:50and especially about you and me.
01:38:54What is that supposed to mean?
01:38:59What are you doing?
01:39:02What 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!
01:39:13If you died now, how would you feel about your life?
01:39:16I don't know! Nothing good. Is that what you want to hear?
01:39:20- Come on! - Not good enough.
01:39:22Stop fucking around! Tyler!
01:39:26Jesus Christ!
01:39:29Goddamn it! Goddamn it! Fuck you!
01:39:31Fuck Fight Club. Fuck Marla!
01:39:33I am sick of all your shit!
01:39:36OK, man.
01:39:40- Quit screwing around. Steer! - Look at you!
01:39:42- Steer! - 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?
01:39:53Hitting bottom isn't a weekend retreat. It's not a goddamned seminar.
01:39:57Stop trying to control everything and just let go!
01:40:02Let go!
01:40:04All right. Fine.
01:41:07I'd never been in a car accident.
01:41:10This must have been what all those people felt like
01:41:13before I filed them as statistics in my reports.
01:41:22We've just had a near-life experience!
01:41:29In the world I see,
01:41:31you're stalking elk through the Grand Canyon forests
01:41:35around the ruins of Rockefeller Center.
01:41:40You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life.
01:41:45You'll climb the thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower.
01:41:49And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn,
01:41:54laying strips of venison in the empty car-pool lane
01:41:58of some abandoned superhighway.
01:42:13Feel better, champ.
01:42:33And then...
01:42:37..Tyler was gone.
01:42:46Was I asleep?
01:42:49Had I slept?
01:42:51You are not a beautiful, unique snowflake...
01:42:54The house had become a living thing.
01:42:57Wet inside from so many people sweating and breathing.
01:43:02So many people moving, the house moved.
01:43:08Planet Tyler.
01:43:10I had to hug the walls.
01:43:12Trapped inside this clockwork of space monkeys.
01:43:15You shouldn't be smoking in here! You know how much ether is here!
01:43:19Cooking and working and sleeping in teams.
01:43:24Hang on a second.
01:43:45It's under control, sir.
01:43:50Where's Tyler?
01:43:52Sir, the first rule of Project Mayhem is you do not...
01:43:55Right... OK.
01:43:59I'm all alone.
01:44:02My father dumped me. Tyler dumped me.
01:44:05I am Jack's broken heart.
01:44:12What comes next in Project Mayhem only Tyler knows.
01:44:16The second rule is you do not ask questions.
01:44:22Get the fuck away from me! Get the fuck away!
01:44:26Who are all these people?
01:44:33The Paper Street Soap Company.
01:44:37Can I come in?
01:44:42He's not here.
01:44:47Tyler isn't here.
01:44:51Tyler went away.
01:44:54Tyler's gone.
01:45:13Get some help!
01:45:26Two gunshot wounds coming through! Make some fucking room!
01:45:30What happened? What happened?
01:45:33We were on assignment. We were supposed to kill two birds with one stone.
01:45:37Destroy a piece of corporate art...
01:45:39Operation Latte Thunder. Go!
01:45:43..and trash a franchise coffee bar.
01:45:52We had it all worked out, sir.
01:46:03- It went smooth until... - Police! Freeze!
01:46:06- What? - They shot Bob.
01:46:10- They shot him in the head. - Fucking pigs!
01:46:18Oh, God!
01:46:20- Those motherfuckers! - You morons.
01:46:24You're running around in ski masks trying to blow things up?
01:46:28What did you think was gonna happen?!
01:46:32OK, quick! Get rid of the evidence. We gotta get rid of this body!
01:46:37- Bury him. - What?
01:46:40Take him to the garden and bury him.
01:46:42- Come on, people, let's go! - Get the fuck off!
01:46:45Get away from him! What are you talking about?
01:46:48This isn't fucking evidence. This is a person.
01:46:51He's my friend and you're not burying him in the garden!
01:46:54He was killed serving Project Mayhem, sir.
01:46:57- This is Bob. - Sir, in...
01:46:59In Project Mayhem, we have no names.
01:47:02Now, you listen to me.
01:47:04This is a man and he has a name, and it's Robert Paulsen, OK?
01:47:08- Robert Paulsen. - He's a man
01:47:10and he's dead now because of us. Do you understand that?
01:47:14I understand.
01:47:18In death, a member of Project Mayhem
01:47:22has a name.
01:47:24His name is Robert Paulsen.
01:47:27His name is Robert Paulsen.
01:47:30His name... is Robert Paulsen.
01:47:33His name is Robert Paulsen.
01:47:37Come on, guys. Please. Stop it.
01:47:40His name is Robert Paulsen.
01:47:43Shut up! This is all over with!
01:47:49Get the fuck out of here.
01:48:20- Tyler? - No, this is Detective Stern of the Arson Unit.
01:48:25I need to see you...
01:48:31I went to all the cities on Tyler's used ticket stubs, barhopping.
01:48:35I didn't know how or why, but I could look at 50 different bars, and somehow I just knew.
01:48:40I'm looking for Tyler Durden. It's very important that I talk to him.
01:48:45I wish I could help you,
01:48:54Every city I went to,
01:48:57as soon as I set foot off the plane
01:49:00I knew a Fight Club was close.
01:49:02Hey! Hey!
01:49:07Look at my face. I'm a member.
01:49:09Now, I just need to know if you've seen Tyler.
01:49:12I'm not exposed to bespeak any such information to you
01:49:15nor 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.
01:49:26Tyler had been busy... setting up franchises all over the country.
01:49:34Was I asleep? Had I slept?
01:49:38Is 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.
01:49:49That'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?
01:49:57I was living in a state of perpetual d茅j脿 vu.
01:50:00Everywhere I went,
01:50:03I felt I'd already been there.
01:50:05It was like following an invisible man.
01:50:09The smell of dried blood,
01:50:11dirty, bare footprints circling each other.
01:50:15That aroma of old sweat, like fried chicken.
01:50:19The feel of a floor still warm from a fight the night before.
01:50:23I was always just one step behind Tyler.
01:50:29His name is Robert Paulsen...
01:50:37Welcome back, sir.
01:50:40How have you been?
01:50:42Do you know me?
01:50:44Is this a test, sir?
01:50:47No. This is not a test.
01:50:48You were in here last Thursday.
01:50:54You were standing where you are now, asking how good security is.
01:50:58It's tight as a drum, sir.
01:51:03Who do you think I am?
01:51:05Are you sure this isn't a test?
01:51:08No, this is not a test.
01:51:10You're Mr Durden.
01:51:13You're the one who gave me this.
01:51:16Please return your seat backs to their full upright and locked position.
01:51:32- Yeah? - Marla, it's me.
01:51:34- Have we ever done it? - Done what?
01:51:36Had sex?
01:51:37What kind of stupid question is that?
01:51:40Stupid because it's yes or because it's no?
01:51:42- Is this a trick? - No. I need to know...
01:51:45You 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?
01:51:52Just answer the question! Did we do it or not?!
01:51:55You fuck me, then snub me. You love me, you hate me.
01:51:58You're sensitive, then you turn into an asshole.
01:52:01Does that describe our relationship, Tyler?
01:52:04We just lost cabin pressure.
01:52:06What did you just say?
01:52:08- What is wrong with you? - Say my name!
01:52:10Tyler Durden! You fucking freak! What's going on?
01:52:14- I'm coming over! - I'm not there!
01:52:16You broke your promise.
01:52:19Jesus, Tyler.
01:52:21- You fucking talked to her about me. - What the fuck is going on?
01:52:24I asked you for one thing. One simple thing.
01:52:28Why do people think that I'm you?
01:52:31Answer me!
01:52:40Answer me. Why do people think I'm you?
01:52:43I think you know.
01:52:45- No, I don't. - Yes, you do.
01:52:48Why would anyone possibly confuse you with me?
01:52:51I... I don't know.
01:52:58- You got it. - No.
01:53:01- Do not fuck with us! - Say it.
01:53:08Say it!
01:53:11Because we're the same person.
01:53:13That's right.
01:53:15We are the all-singing, all-dancing crap.
01:53:17- I don't understand this. - You wanted a way to change your life.
01:53:21You could not do this on your own.
01:53:23All the ways you wish you could be,
01:53:26that's me.
01:53:27I look like you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck.
01:53:31I am smart, capable and, most importantly,
01:53:33I'm free in all the ways that you are not.
01:53:36Oh, no.
01:53:37- Tyler's not here. Tyler went away. - What?
01:53:40This isn't possible. This is crazy.
01:53:43People do it every day.
01:53:45They talk to themselves. They see themselves as they'd like to be.
01:53:48They don't have the courage you have to just run with it.
01:53:55You 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.
01:54:04If this is your first time, you have to fight.
01:54:06Little by little, you're just letting yourself become
01:54:11Tyler Durden.
01:54:13You 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.
01:54:22Or you stay up and make soap.
01:54:24- You're fucking Marla, Tyler. - Technically, you are. It's all the same to her.
01:54:31Oh, my God.
01:54:34Now you see our dilemma.
01:54:36She knows too much.
01:54:39I think we're gonna have to talk about how this might compromise our goals.
01:54:44What... What are you saying?
01:54:47This is bullshit. This is bullshit, I'm not listening to this!
01:54:51- You are insane! - No. You're insane.
01:54:54We simply do not have time for this crap.
01:54:58It's called a changeover.
01:55:00The movie goes on
01:55:03and nobody in the audience has any idea.
01:55:19- Sir! Are you checking out? - Yeah. Bill me.
01:55:23Can you initial this list of phone calls?
01:55:29- When were these made? - Between 2.00 and 3.30 this morning.
01:55:39Have I been going to bed earlier every night? Have I been sleeping later?
01:55:43Have I been Tyler longer and longer?
01:55:51Is anybody here?
01:55:56D茅j脿 vu all over again.
01:56:00With enough soap, one could blow up anything.
01:56:05Oh, my God.
01:56:10- 1888. - Who am I calling?
01:56:131888 Franklin. This is maintenance. Hello?
01:56:201888 Franklin Street?
01:56:22Yes. Can I help you?
01:56:27- Hello? - Yeah, yeah.
01:56:29I need to talk to your supervisor right away.
01:56:32- Speaking. - OK, listen to me.
01:56:34Something terrible is about to happen to your building.
01:56:37It's under control, sir.
01:56:40- Excuse me? - Don't worry about us, sir. We're solid.
01:56:57Marla! Marla! Hey, wait!
01:57:01Wait! I gotta talk to you! Marla! Marla!
01:57:04Your bald freaks hit me with a fucking broom! They almost broke my arm!
01:57:08They were burning their fingertips with lye.
01:57:11This 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.
01:57:22I don't wanna hear anything you have to say.
01:57:25You have every right to be...
01:57:27I'll just have a coffee, thanks.
01:57:29Sir. Anything you order is free of charge, sir.
01:57:32Why is it free of charge?
01:57:34- Don't ask. - Whatever.
01:57:37I'll have the clam chowder, fried chicken and baked potato and a chocolate chiffon pie.
01:57:42Clean food, please.
01:57:44In that case, may I advise against the clam chowder.
01:57:47No clam chowder. Thank you.
01:57:51You got about 30 seconds.
01:57:56I 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.
01:58:07- What? - The nature of our relationship wasn't clear
01:58:11to me for reasons I won't go into.
01:58:14- I know I haven't treated you well. - Whatever.
01:58:17No, no. Fifteen seconds, please!
01:58:19Fifteen seconds, don't open your mouth.
01:58:22I'm trying to tell you I'm sorry.
01:58:24What I've come to realize is that I really like you, Marla.
01:58:28You do?
01:58:30I really do.
01:58:32I care about you and I don't want anything bad to happen to you because of me.
01:58:37Marla, your life is in danger.
01:58:42You 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.
01:59:01There are things about you I like. You're smart, funny.
01:59:04You're spectacular in bed.
01:59:07you're intolerable.
01:59:10You have very serious emotional problems.
01:59:12Deep-seated 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.
01:59:21I can't do this any more.
01:59:24I can't.
01:59:26And I won't.
01:59:28I'm gone.
01:59:30You 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...
01:59:44Here, wait right here!
01:59:50Hold it right there! Shut up!
01:59:53Take this money and get on this bus.
01:59:55I promise I won't bother you again.
01:59:57Shut up!
01:59:59Please get on the bus. Please get on the bus.
02:00:03Why are you doing this?
02:00:05They 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. - Tyler.
02:00:20You're the worst thing that ever happened to me.
02:00:38Hello. I need you to arrest me.
02:00:40I am the leader of a terrorist organization
02:00:43responsible for numerous acts of vandalism and assault all over this city.
02:00:48In the metropolitan area, we had probably 200 members.
02:00:52Chapters have sprung up in five or six other major cities already.
02:00:56This is a tightly-regimented organization
02:00:59with many cells capable of operating independent of central leadership.
02:01:05Go to the house, OK? 1537 Paper Street.
02:01:09That's our headquarters.
02:01:11In the back, buried in the garden,
02:01:14you'll find the body of Robert Paulsen.
02:01:17In the basement, you're gonna find some bathtubs
02:01:20that have been used very recently to make large quantities of nitroglycerin.
02:01:26I believe the plan is to blow up
02:01:28the headquarters of these credit card companies
02:01:31and the TRW building.
02:01:34Why these buildings? Why credit card companies?
02:01:37If you erase the debt record, then we all go back to zero.
02:01:42You'll create total chaos.
02:01:46Keep him talking. I need to make a phone call.
02:01:59I really admire what you're doing.
02:02:04You're a brave man to order this.
02:02:06You're a genius, sir.
02:02:08You said if anyone ever interferes with Project Mayhem, even you,
02:02:13we 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.
02:02:30Listen 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.
02:02:43Are you fucking out of your minds? You're police officers!
02:02:48Is somebody timing this?
02:02:50Keep your mouth shut.
02:02:58Some of this information checks out.
02:03:00- Let's go to that house on Paper Street. - Be right there.
02:03:04Hey, wait!
02:03:07- I got him. - Sir, we have to do this.
02:03:10- Stop fighting! - Where's the rubber band?
02:03:12Get away from me! Drop that fucking knife!
02:03:18Back up. Face down on the floor right now!
02:03:23Get down on the floor!
02:03:30The first person that comes out of this door
02:03:33gets a lead salad! Understand?
02:03:59Get away! Stay away!
02:04:14I ran.
02:04:17I ran until my muscles burned and my veins pumped battery acid.
02:04:24Then I ran some more.
02:05:07What the fuck are you doing?
02:05:09Running around in your underpants! You look crazy!
02:05:12No. I'm onto you. I know what's going on here.
02:05:15Come 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. - Why?
02:06:14- The greatest thing you've ever done. - I can't let this happen.
02:06:18There are 10 other bombs in 10 other buildings.
02:06:21Since when is Project Mayhem about murder?
02:06:24The buildings are empty.
02:06:26We're not killing anyone. We're setting 'em free!
02:06:29Bob is dead. They shot him in the head.
02:06:32You wanna make an omelette, you gotta break some eggs.
02:06:35No. I'm not listening to you. You're not even there.
02:06:45I wouldn't do that. Not unless you knew which wires were what.
02:06:49If you know, I know.
02:06:56Or maybe I knew you'd know, so I spent all day thinking about the wrong ones.
02:07:09You think?
02:07:12Oh, heavens, no. Not the green one.
02:07:15Pull any one but the green one.
02:07:23I asked you not to do that!
02:07:30Tyler, get away from the van.
02:07:34Tyler, I'm not kidding! Get away from the van!
02:07:38Goddamn it!
02:07:47You are now firing a gun at your imaginary friend
02:07:50near 400 gallons of nitroglycerin!
02:07:55Cool it, Tyler!
02:08:10Come on!
02:08:12Don't go!
02:09:39Three minutes.
02:09:40This is it.
02:09:43The beginning.
02:09:45Ground zero.
02:09:47I think this is about where we came in.
02:09:49Do you have a speech for the occasion?
02:09:52I'm sorry?
02:09:55I still can't think of anything.
02:09:59Flashback humor.
02:10:06It's getting exciting now.
02:10:10Two and a half.
02:10:12Think of everything we've accomplished.
02:10:14Out these windows, we will view the collapse of financial history.
02:10:19One step closer to economic equilibrium.
02:10:37Why is she here?
02:10:39Tying up loose ends.
02:10:41Put 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. - No.
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.
02:11:00You're a voice in mine!
02:11:02- Why can't I get rid of you? - You need me.
02:11:05No. I don't. I really don't any more.
02:11:07You 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
02:11:16and I accept that.
02:11:17So, please, I'm begging you, please call this off.
02:11:23Have I ever let us down?
02:11:27How far have you come because of me?!
02:11:35I will bring us through this.
02:11:37As always, I will carry you kicking and screaming
02:11:41and in the end you will thank me.
02:11:44Tyler. Tyler.
02:11:47I'm grateful to you. For everything that you've done for me.
02:11:50But this is too much. I don't want this.
02:11:53What do you want? Your shitjob back? Fucking condo world, watching sitcoms?
02:11:59Fuck you! I won't do it.
02:12:01- This can't be happening. - It's already done, so shut up!
02:12:0560 seconds till CRI.
02:12:11I can figure this out. This isn't even real.
02:12:14You're not real, that gun... That gun isn't even in your hand.
02:12:20The gun's in my hand.
02:12:27Good for you. It doesn't change a thing.
02:12:38Why do you wanna put a gun to your head?
02:12:41Not my head, Tyler.
02:12:43Our head.
02:12:52Where are you going with this, Ikea boy?
02:13:01Hey. It's you and me.
02:13:15I want you to really listen to me.
02:13:20My eyes are open.
02:13:41What's that smell?
02:14:03- Where is everybody? - Oh, no. What's going on?
02:14:06Mr Durden!
02:14:09Oh, my God!
02:14:16Are 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.
02:14:31Look, I'm fine... Everything's fine.
02:14:37Stop it!
02:14:39- Let her go. - Christ Almighty!
02:14:44Hi, Marla.
02:14:47- Leave her with me. Meet me downstairs. - Are you sure?
02:14:51Yes, I'm sure.
02:14:55You fucker! What kind of sick fucking game are you playing at?!
02:14:59Putting me on a... Oh, my God, your face!
02:15:02Yeah, I know.
02:15:08What happened?
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.
02:15:22Who did this?
02:15:24I did, actually.
02:15:27Find some gauze.
02:15:30You shot yourself?
02:15:32Yes, but it's OK. Marla, look at me.
02:15:35I'm really OK.
02:15:37Trust me. Everything's gonna be fine.
02:15:54You met me at a very strange time in my life.
