The events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the season finale of Agents of SHIELD has me thinking about what's going on with Nick Fury. Spoilers ahead.

I can't help seeing Fury having this conversation.


"First, I'm going to turn SHIELD over to Coulson, then, basically, I'm just going to walk the Earth like Caine in Kung Fu. Walk from place to place, meet people, get into adventures."

"No, Nick. You've decided to be a bum. Just like those pieces of shit out there who beg for change, sleep in garbage bins and eat what I throw away. They got a name for that, Nick: it's called 'a bum'. And without a job, a residence or legal tender, that's exactly what you're going to be: a fucking bum."
