I was thinking about a quote from the movie:

"Why did it have to be Eddie? He symbolizes everything that disgusts me. Obviousness. Unoriginal macho energy. Ladies Man..."
I like the protagonist's integrity. Sure, to the outside world he is nothing but a bum, and in almost every case, he does not care what you think of him. The protagonist still holds some people in a particular state of contempt, because their very being symbolize the antithesis of his personal beliefs. It seems that most people can't respect the integrity of a bum, but some people have done a lot of thinking, drinking and writing about this subject.
