Airportmatt: I don't think his name was actually Jack...he's referred to in the credits as The Narrator. Also, I'm pretty sure Tyler was his imagination, because why would Tyler Durden imagine himself as an Ikea-loving loner who lives only to work?


I'm reminded of my "Recent Popular Literature" course when I was in college. We read Bright Lights, Big City, which is written in the second person, with an unnamed narrator.  Apparently, the cliff's notes gave the character a name, because the professor reamed someone in the class about it.  I giggled.

and hated that book.

I think I'll try living in a billionaires life for a few years and maybe forget where I put the money.

When I was about 8 or 9, I went to the funeral of a classmate's father, a famous race car driver killed in a racing accident.  A few years after that, I saw him on TV being interviewed live. According to Wikipedia, he's still alive now. My brother, who was at the funeral with me, has no recollection of the event.

Could this possibly be a case of Capgras delusion?

Tony Rosato from SCTV had it.

Well, maybe.  But did you ever stop to think, if you could wake up in a different city, in a different time zone... could you wake up as a different person?

Everything is possible. However extremely improbable.

There's the joke, sailing right by you on the moving walkway.

so was tyler a figment of jack's imagination.... or was jack a figment of tyler's imagination?

I don't think his name was actually Jack...he's referred to in the credits as The Narrator.  Also, I'm pretty sure Tyler was his imagination, because why would Tyler Durden imagine himself as an Ikea-loving loner who lives only to work?


Tyler at one point says, "I didn't create some loser alter-ego to make myself feel better " and "You are now shooting a gun at your imaginary friend in front of five hundred gallons of nitroglycerin!"

The narrator (Norton) is the real Tyler Durden, Pitt portrays the Tyler he wants to be.

Not if I take my meds.

Well, technically, they were both the same person, but it's all the same to Marla.

By which I mean, and let's keep them split out as "Jack" and "Tyler" as an expedient, since we don't know if Tyler Durden was his real name either...  Marla pointed out in one of their arguments that "Jack" wore a different nametag, different name, at every meeting.  He was pretending to be a different person at every self help group.  Then he began sleeping again, and "Tyler" woke up (so to speak), becoming more than just a nametag, and went about creating his own personal self help group (lampshaded by "Jack"s talk with Bob).  A self help group for people who just hate their lives and have no outlet for their frustration.

Steering this ramble back to the point - it is entirely possible that we never hear what "Jack"'s name is because he's forgotten it himself.  Or it doesn't matter, because in the process of healing himself he incorporates Tyler into himself by accepting what he's done.
