This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The narrator forces a convenience store clerk to change his life by threatening his life. This happens after Tyler has left. Tyler does the human sacrifice with the narrator watching helplessly. Tyler takes the man's license, and near the end of the film we see the back of the narrator's door is covered with licenses indicating that he did it many times over.
   Marla's mother sends fat from her liposuction procedures that Tyler uses to make soap. Tyler and the narrator sneak into a plastic surgeon's office and steal huge bags of fat for their soap production.
   Tyler and the narrator start project mayhem together. The narrator is a willing participant. The narrator is somewhat disturbed to see how far project mayhem is going and has a confrontation with Tyler about starting it without him.
   Marla eventually gets a lye burn on the back of her hand. She questions why the narrator has one, and doesn't get one herself.
   The narrator beats a man to a bloody pulp because he is envious of his good looks. Angel face is seen as taking the Narrator's place as Tyler's friend, so the narrator freaks out and beats his face to a pulp. He tells Tyler "I felt like destroying something beautiful."
