“Welcome to Fight Club. The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is: you DO NOT talk about Fight Club! Third rule of Fight Club: someone yells ‘stop!’, goes limp, taps out, the fight is over. Fourth rule: only two guys to a fight. Fifth rule: one fight at a time, fellas. Sixth rule: No shirts, no shoes. Seventh rule: fights will go on as long as they have to. And the eighth and final rule: if this is your first time at Fight Club, you have to fight.” — Fight Club (1999)
Which is better? The book or the movie? Chuck Palahniuk's groundbreaking story or David Fincher's shocking vision? I think they're both a tiny bit mental and they're also both a great deal brilliant. If nothing else, this quote is legendary (not to mention spoofed into oblivion) and the movie set new dimensions for twist endings.
