La, la, la...

"What a wonder is a gun? What a versatile invention! First of all, when you've a gun-" (he points the gun at the audience. There is a very long pause) "Everybody pays attention!"

I'm trying to put down every one of my favorite quotes from that play. Grrr... it'd be easier if I had the actual script, but all I have is what came with the cd. I'd really like the book. I want Czolgosz's speech about the working conditions in the factories. Good, good speech.

This play actually makes me want to go back to Speech and Debate next year... just so I can take this into Dramatic interp. Arrrgh... but that means dealing with all the shit...

Not fair! I want a decent coach!

Can you tell I'm feeling a wee bit frustrated with high school now?

Tyler Durden's message to the human race:

You are not your job.
You are not how much money you have in the bank.
You are not the car you drive.
You are not the contents of your wallet.
You are not your fucking khakis.

My own additions:

You are not your trite, juvenile poetry about love and relationships.
You are not the horribly acted plays you are in.
You are not your friends.
You are not the music you listen to.
You are not the sport you play.
You are not your grades.
You are not your Abercrombie shirts, your $1 thrift shop sweater, or your four inch high platform shoes.

You are the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.

Get used to it.
