“I am Jack’s raging bile duct.” What does it mean? (Fight Club)?

In Fight Club, the narrator says “I am Jack’s raging bile duct”.

A bile duct is a duct (connection tube) which connects the liver, the gall bladder and your duodenum (small intestines). It does not produce anything. Instead, it acts as a connection tube. When the liver produces bile, it would be stored in the gall bladder. When needed, the bile would be released to the duodenum through the bile duct. Bile acts to emulsify fat, that is, to breakdown fat into tinier droplets.
compare and contrast in a figurative meaning.

Duct Jack

Bile is commonly associated with puking, I can’t remember what was happening in the film when this was said, but Edward Norton’s character clearly felt an overwhelming sense to puke as his bile duct was “raging”. Not necessarily being sick, but whenever something bad/upsetting happens and you have that terrible feeling in the gut is probably what he was referring to.

I don’t remember at what point he says this, but throughout the film he simply relates what he’s feeling in terms of Jack’s body, as at the start he finds the stack of medical books detailing every ailment using the character ‘Jack’.

Jack, there’s just something about a man that hallucinates….

Answer 6

I have an idea…
raging=violent, angry, agressive, etc.
bile= poo (for lack of a better word, lol)
duct= hole, pore, opening, etc.
“raging bile duct” = crazy a** hole?
I might start using that myself! Well…maybe not lol
