written by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples, from the novel by Philip K. Dick
Deckard: Remember when you were six? You and your brother snuck into an empty building through a basement window. You were going to play doctor. He showed you his but when it got to be your turn you chickened and ran, you remember that? You ever tell anybody that? Your mother, Tyrell, anybody? Remember the spider that lived outside your window? Orange body, green legs. Watched her build a web all summer then one day there's a big egg in it. The egg hatched...
Rachael: The egg hatched...
Rachael: And a hundred baby spiders came out and they ate her.
Deckard: Implants. Those aren't your memories, they're somebody else's. They're Tyrell's niece's. Okay, bad joke... I made a bad joke. You're not a replicant. Go home, okay? No, really, I'm sorry, go home.
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.
