Trivia: As The Narrator is watching the promotional hotel video in his suite, an army of white-jacked servants come on screen to welcome the guest to their happy place of business. Front row, far right happens to be Brad Pitt. This is in no way to further the plot, it was just a silly inclusion that no one seems to catch (as states Pitt on the DVD commentary). (00:20:17)

Revealing mistake: When Brad Pitt is cutting out newspaper articles about Project Mayhem's mayhem, the headlines refer to their deeds, but the actual writing in the articles has absolutely nothing to do with the movie. They seem to all come from one article about some town council meeting. (01:21:10)

Question: What is the meaning of the penguin and Marla saying 'Sly' in the cave?

Answer: The penguin says "slide" and then slides on its belly. Marla repeats it later. I believe they are telling him to let go and be Tyler.

Grumpy Scot

Answer: Penguin is a manifestation of the "happy place" in his head. He seeks comfort in others grieving and this is what is helping him feel again. As someone else stated "slide" is the statement that is uttered. Marla is invading his grieving time and this is a manifestation of it. He can't even get away from her in his meditation, so he ends up leaving it altogether.
