    OK…. the replicant, before dying….


    "I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. [laughs] Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.


    I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears in rain. Time to die."

    Confession: I’ve never seen Blade Runner
    (I know, I know… I promised you guys I’d do better, but it takes time. )

    But parodying this soliloquy is sort of an internet meme…

    Nazz…. do you mean, you saw Pee Wee watching a movie…. which is infamous?


    Or that you saw one of his movies?
    Cos Pee Wee’s Big Adventure will never be lost in time!

    I’ve seen snipets of Honey BooBoo. I wish that could be washed away.
    BTW Blade Runner is a clasic show.

    @SusanSunshine

    I was about to Google this myself, when I scrolled down and saw your essay. Good job, kid!

    Susan, unless you hate science fiction you should see Blade Runner. It took some effort not to make that sound like an assignment.

    A brilliant movie, even if I weren’t a science fiction fan from childhood.


    I see an irony that not “Blade Runner”, not this scene, and not the many unforgettable images, characters, and performances (esp. my lovelies Joanna Cassidy, Sean Young, and Daryl Hannah) will EVER be “lost in time, like tears in rain”.

    Pretty scary if it’s true. Hope he doesn’t turn on us.
