In honor of Prof. Sam B. Girgus' mention of the film today in class and the film's ethics in reference to the philosophy of Levinas, I have decided to make this memorable quote from "On the Waterfront" the "quote of the day."
"You don't understand - I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am. Let's face it." ~ a miserable, reflective Marlon Brando in "On the Waterfront"
*look for it around the 4:23 mark*
