The new clubbing scene (project Mayhem)

The real club is here baby, come on you aren't afraid are you?
All through your life, you avoided uncertainty, and now finally your nimble mind has given up on thee. Hey you aren't afraid are you now?
Oh you are, what a shame, for the only true spirit is in the spirit of this game. Its starts in the ring, but you probably ought to know the rules. Here it goes, before you for sure... 
Rule No.1: You do not speak about fight club.
You want to know rule no 2?
Rule No.2: Everyone is expendable in project mayhem
Welcome to the wicked yet real and believable world of Tyler Durden. 
Its a party, so come on in, drink some punch and get ready to fight to death... 
All through my undergraduate years, I had this wicked and incessent need to punch myself and others and be punched, It was our personal private fight club, to explore the boundaries of pain. For as you all very well know ladies and gentlemen, there is no other teacher than pain. 
Oh its instant, to the brain, requires some smarts but all the balls you can muster up again and again. Stand up, You can still stand up, well its time for you to be wacked some more, so that you realize that this is just a fight, not to settle any scores. 
No opponents, no enemies, no one here but yourself and me; why dont you start; give it a good shot; you made me bleed, I like it, the smell and taste of my blood; done with half the deed. I strike back, sternem and above, puncture your lungs, so that you puke some more blood... elixir in this fight; my real respect to my enemy tonight..... 
You are not my enemy; the conditioning of my head is the true deal, look ahead and behind; we dont got no seatbelts strapped on, let go, tyler cries; I let go and leave my secret spot behind. I am free, Flying soaring in an all out blood fest. Welcome to our club, we are here for your service and your service only.... 
Its good to get drunk and fight, but you know what; its even more bloody real when you let it go on your own face with your own fists all sober and with no one to sight. Trying times when you think you are demented after all you have created the double to see you through what you could not accomplish by yourself ever. 

Fight club is not an invention, It is our inner most desire. To learn from the greatest teacher here on this earth, the powerful fist; the raging veins, the subtle dementia all through my brain. 

Some very alternate quotes from the script of this epic movie


Narrator: "I... I don't know. I guess... when people think
you're dying, they really listen, instead..."
Marla: "-Instead of just waiting for their turn to speak." 

"Like everyone else, I had become a
slave to the IKEA nesting instinct.
If I saw something like clever coffee
table sin the shape of a yin and yang,
I had to have it. I would flip through
catalogs and wonder, "What kind of dining
set defines me as a person?" We used to
read pornography. Now it was the Horchow
Collection. I had it all. Even the glass
dishes with tiny bubbles and imperfections,
proof they were crafted by the honest,
simple, hard-working indigenous peoples of
wherever."  

"With insomnia, you're never really asleep;
you're never really awake."  

"This is your life and it's ending one
minute at a time." 

"I am Jack's smirking revenge."
"I am Jack's cold sweat"
"I am Jack's raging bile duct"
"I am Jack's broken heart"
"I am Jack's complete lack of surprise"

"With a gun in your mouth, you speak only
in vowels." 

"If you wake up at a different time
and in a different place, could you
wake up as a different person?" 

"After fighting, everything else in your life has
got the volume turned down." 

Tyler continues:       
"Our generation has had no Great Depression, no Great War.
Our war is spiritual. Our depression is our lives." 

"You are not your job.
You are not how much you have in the bank.
You are not the contents of your wallet.
You are not your fucking Khakis.
You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake.
You are the all-singing, all-dancing crap of
the world."

"How much can you know about yourself
if you've never been in a fight?" 

"It's only after you've lost everything
that you're free to do anything." 

"You just had a near-life experience." 

"You are not special. You are not a
beautiful or unique snowflake. You are
the same decaying organic matter as
everything else."

"Hitting bottom isn't a weekend retreat! It's not a seminar!
You have to forget everything you know, everything you think
you know -- about life, about friendship, about you and me."

of course the most profound and least known quote of the author and the most cryptic is repeated by marla character in the movie: it goes like this, 

"S-L-I-D-E"
