    • Rimmer: I could've been an admiral by now, I really could! Instead of a nothing, which is what I am, let's face it.

      Rimmer's speech echoes lines from the movie On The Waterfront (1954) with Marlon Brando in his Oscar-winning role as Terry Molloy, a thuggish dockside worker who bemoans to his brother (Rod Steiger) his lost opportunity of making something of himself (in this case, in the boxing world):

      Terry: 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.
