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 looks up as a pudgy man, Jack's BOSS, enters, Starbucks

cup in hand, and slides a stack of reports on Jack's desk.

BOSS:

I'm going to need you out-of-town a

little more this week. We've got

some "red-flags" to cover.

JACK (V.O.)

It must've been Tuesday. he was

wearing his "cornflower-blue" tie.

JACK:

(listless management speak)

You want me to de-prioritize my

current reports until you advise of

a status upgrade?

BOSS:

You need to make these your primary

"action items."

JACK (V.O.)

He was full of pep. Must've had his

grande latte enema.

BOSS:

Here are your flight coupons. Call

me from the road if there are any

snags. Your itinerary...

Jack hides a yawn, pretends to listen.

INT. BATHROOM - JACK'S CONDO - NIGHT

Jack sits on the toilet, CORDLESS PHONE to his ear, flips

through an IKEA catalog. There's a stack of old Playboy

magazines and other catalogs nearby.

JACK (V.O.)

Like everyone else, I had become a

slave to the IKEA nesting instinct.
