Batty: Quite an experience to live in fear, isn’t it? That’s what it is to be a slave.
Batty: I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
– Batty (Rutger Hauer), Blade Runner (1982), screenplay by Hampton Fancher and David Webb Peoples, based on a novel by Philip K. Dick
The Daily Dialogue theme for the week is facing death, suggested by @tiffanyleigh and @al_grinter. Today’s suggestion by JasperLamarCrab.
Trivia: One of David Webb Peoples’s early screenplays opened the movie on an Off-World Termination Dump, where three dead replicants were to be disposed of. Peoples reused this idea of discarding dead servants on an off-world colony dump in his screenplay for Soldier, which he considered a ‘side-quel’ to Blade Runner (1982) (i.e. an unrelated movie taking place in the same fictional universe).
Dialogue: As Jasper said in his comment, this is a twofer: “dialogue when another character is facing death, and dialogue when the speaker is facing death.”
