Fight Club script
Fight Club (1999)
Synopsis: A depressed man (Edward Norton) suffering from insomnia meets a strange soap salesman named Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) and soon finds himself living in his squalid house after his perfect apartment is destroyed. The two bored men form an underground club with strict rules and fight other men who are fed up with their mundane lives. Their perfect partnership frays when Marla (Helena Bonham Carter), a fellow support group crasher, attracts Tyler's attention.

JACK (V.O.)

Six months ago, Bob's testicles were

removed. Then hormone therapy. He

developed bitch tits because his

testosterone was too high and his

body upped the estrogen. That was

where my head fit -- into his huge,

sweating tits that hung enormous, the

way we think of God's as big.

BOB:

They're gonna have to open my pec's

again to drain the fluid.

Bob hugs tighter; then looks with empathy into Jack's eyes.

BOB:

Okay. You cry now.

Jack looks at Bob.

JACK (V.O.)

Wait. Back up. Let me start earlier.

INT. JACK'S BEDROOM - NIGHT

Jack lies in bed, staring at the ceiling.

JACK (V.O.)

For six months. I could not sleep.

INT. COPY ROOM - DAY

Jack, sleepy, stands over a copy machine. His Starbucks cup

sits on the lid, moving back and forth as the machine copies.

JACK (V.O.)

With insomnia, nothing is real.

Everything is far away. Everything

is a copy of a copy of a copy.

Other people make copies, all with Starbucks cups, sipping.

Jack picks up his cup and his copies and leaves.

INT. JACK'S OFFICE - SAME

Jack, sipping, stares blankly at a Starbucks bag on the

floor, full of newspapers and FAST FOOD GARBAGE.

JACK (V.O.)

When deep space exploration ramps up,

it will be corporations that name

everything. The IBM Stellar Sphere.

The Philip Morris Galaxy. Planet

Starbucks.
