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)
