Twenty Quotes from Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" (1982)

"My mother? Lemme tell you about my mother" BLAM BLAM BLAM (shoots him) - Leon (Brion James) to Holden (Morgan Paull) (although later, when Deckard was listening to a tape of the incident, the quote was "I'll tell you about my mother")

"A NEW LIFE awaits you in the Off-World Colonies - the chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure." - recruiting announcement

"Give it to Holden - he's good."....."I did. He can breathe okay, as long as nobody unplugs him." - Deckard (Harrison Ford) and Bryant (M. Emmet Walsh)

"Commerce is our goal here at Tyrell.  'More Human Than Human' is our motto." - Tyrell (Joe Turkel) to Deckard.

"Chew - If only you could see what I've seen with your eyes." - Roy to Chew

"Okay. Bad joke. I made a bad joke. You're not a replicant. Go home, okay?" - Deckard to Rachael

"Replicants weren't supposed to have feelings. Neither were blade runners." - Deckard, voice-over

"I make friends. They're toys. My friends are toys. I make them. It's a hobby, I'm a genetic designer." - J.F. Sebastian (William Sanderson) to Pris (Daryl Hannah)

"Quite an experience to live in fear, isn't it? That's what it is to be a slave." - Roy, blood dripping off his nose in the rain, to Deckard, dangling from a roof beam

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched sea beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die." - Roy (dying) to Deckard

"It's too bad she won't live. But then again, who does?" - Gaff (Edward James Olmos) to Deckard
