Most of the time, Jack (the Narrator played by Edward Norton) is in control of his body--sometimes without Tyler and other times with Tyler at his side. In these instances, any action that Tyler performs is actually taken by Jack. For example, the Narrator actually pours the lye onto his own hand. But in the car crash scene, even though Jack's body was ...
