(Scene from Fight Club)

JACK
What do you do, Tyler?
TYLER
What do you want me to do?
JACK
I mean -- for a living.
TYLER
Why? So you can say, "Oh, *that's* what you do." -- And be a smug little shit about it?
Jack laughs. He points to his own briefcase, under the seat in front of him.
JACK
We have the same briefcase.
Tyler pops the latches on his briefcase. A beat, while Jack's expression turns nervous again about what's inside. Tyler swings the lid up, revealing a full bounty of quaintly-wrapped bars of soap.
TYLER
I make and sell soap.
He gives Jack one. Jack takes it, looks it over.
TYLER (CONT’D)
If you add nitric acid to the soap-making process, you get nitroglycerin. With enough soap, you could blow up the world.
Jack now looks at the bar of soap nervously. He looks at Tyler, slowly smiles and shakes his head.
Tyler takes out a blank BOARDING PASS. He takes out a small stencil, scrapes a pencil over it, creating a seat number which looks printed.
Then, he takes out a stamp and ink pad. He stamps the pass.
JACK
Uh ... why are you going to Wilmington?
TYLER
I live there.
JACK
Me, too.
Tyler shuts his briefcase and stands.
TYLER
Excuse me.
Jack stands, allowing Tyler to pass into the aisle.
JACK
So, uh ... we should hook up sometime.
Jack hands Tyler a business card. Tyler snatches it, writes down a number, hands it back to Jack.
JACK (CONT’D)
Tyler, you're by far the most interesting "single-serving" friend I have ever met.
A beat as Tyler stares at him, deadpan. Jack, enjoying his own chance to be witty, leans a bit closer to Tyler.
JACK (CONT’D)
You see, when you travel, everything is --
TYLER
I grasp the concept. You're very clever.
JACK
Thank you.
TYLER
How's that working out for you? -- Being clever.
JACK (THROWN OFF)
Well, uh ... uh ... great.
TYLER
Keep it up, then. Keep it right up.
Jack sits and watches Tyler walk up to the curtain dividing First Class. Tyler show the bogus boarding pass to an ATTENDANT, who leads him through the curtain.
