When the Narrator in Fight Club is done struggling to retrieve his luggage at the airport, he sees Tyler hop into a red convertible with the car's owner yelling the following.

"Hey! That's my car!"

Is the car's owner just another part of the Narrator's imagination?

    I'm not sure 'diegetically' is the correct word for what you are describing, since even if it is imaginary/hallucinatory it is still part of the narrative of the film's world, not something only the audience can see. I'm not sure what other word to use, though.

  • Either the carjacking or the narrator conversation with the airport employee was imaginary. Hmmmm...interesting May 17, 2023 at 13:41

    @user7294900 if you haven't seen the film it would spoil it a bit to explain it to you. The actual question is verging on spoilerness.

    @steelersquirrel Or they happened further apart in time than we see. Jul 4, 2023 at 2:00
  • @steelersquirrel +1 yes, this. He suffers a humiliation at the hands of the airport employee which prompt a personality turn. Feb 13 at 12:02
