    Fight Club (1999) - Tyler Durden:
    We buy things we don't need, to impress people we don't like.
    
    Is this correct? Thanks.

    I don't think that quote is from FC at all.

    There's a quote about advertising, working jobs we hate and buying things we don't need but it's not that quote as far as I recall.

    Either way, that quote was around long before Fight Club.
