Fight Club Chapter 5 Summary
How It All Goes Down
- A couple of unfortunate events befall our narrator in this chapter.
- First, his luggage is confiscated because it was vibrating.
- Second, his apartment blows up. Yikes.
- He laments the loss of all his personal belongings, and calls Tyler for a place to stay.
- They go to a bar and get drunk. Out in the parking lot, Tyler says something you might have heard before: "I want you to hit me as hard as you can." (5.93)
