Wow, I've always thought the line "You can borrow it sometime" was odd, but I think you are on to something here.

@TylerShads True, but I was referring to the common literary theme when two people never appear in the same place at the same time are usually the same person. This happens when Mrs. Doubtfire and Daniel are never able to be in the same place at the same time, and he must rotate between tables at the final scene to be able to give the illusion that he is attending both dinners. Is there some parallel here, I wonder if Jack might have wondered this himself - if Tyler and Marla were the same person.

@TylerShads You're right. I have come back to this question, and absolutely they do all look at her collectively. I am going to add another facet to this question; Why are there no scenes where Jack, Tyler and Marla are all in the same scene at the same time?

As for the basement comment, is it not possible that since Tyler and Marla are two of Jack's personality fragments that they can't stand to acknowledge each other's existence?

Jack even says "Except for their humping, Tyler and Marla were never in the same room. My parents pulled this exact same act for years." There is a really common literary theme where one person is pretending to be two people, and cannot ever be in the same room with that other person, think of Mrs. Doubtfire at the restaurant scene. He is supposed to be there at two tables, being two people, but has to keep running away and making excuses why he can't be in the same place at the same time.

While I agree with everything else you're saying, I don't think by her saying This is cancer, right? it is telling, because nobody really responds to her, and nobody notices except Jack. Although Bob may or may not, it's hard to tell. Her entrance may be the coalescence of an idea.

Excellent refutation. However, one thing I'd like to point out is that there are some interpretations that at some point Jack actually becomes institutionalized, and the building at the end is an insane asylum. The Project Mayhem guys, along with Marla, who come into the room could actually be nurses and/or doctors.

Sorry I erased my comment on accident, it was above TylerShads' second. It said the waiter may have been referring to Jack as the lady as in the highfalutin form of address to a high-ranking woman.
