Favourite Movie Dialogue – Fight Club

Scene 1:

Tyler: One minute. This is the beginning. We’re at ground zero. Maybe you should say a few words, to mark the occasion.
Jack: … i… ann….iinn.. ff….nnyin…
Jack (V.O.): With a gun barrel between your teeth, you only speak in vowels.
(Jack tongues the barrel to the side of his mouth.)
Jack: (still distorted) I can’t think of anything.
