Quote #7

"What we have to do, people [...] is remind these guys what kind of power they still have." (16.22)

Mmm, primal power. According to Fight Club, it's there in every man. And if he can tap into it, he can do anything.

Quote #8

"If anyone ever tries to shut down the club, even you, then we have to get him by the nuts." (26.50)

Oh, good. It's been awhile since we've had a man talking about another man's genitals. The guys of Project Mayhem are awfully pre-occupied with other men's equipment.
