Day 16 - A great quote!

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 Tanhauser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
Time to die.

Almost breaks your heart doesn't it? That's Roy Batty's famous Tears in the Rain speech from the end of Blade Runner, as delivered by Rutger Hauer. Has Hauer ever been better in a film? His performance as Batty is one of the great creations in all of science fiction. He is smart, menacing and, ultimately, a tragic figure. And depending on which version of events you believe Hauer actually wrote or re-wrote the above lines from the original script. Epic stuff.
