Al Pacino as "Lt. Vincent Hanna" in Heat (1995):
I gotta hold on to my angst. I preserve it because I need it. It keeps me sharp, on the edge, where I gotta be.

Dr. Eldon Tyrell's Memorable Quotes:
Rick Deckard
Dr. Eldon Tyrell
She's a replicant, isn't she?I'm impressed. How many questions does it usually take to spot them?I don't get it, Tyrell.How many questions?Twenty, thirty, cross-referenced.It took more than a hundred for Rachael, didn't it?[realizing Rachael believes she's human] She doesn't know.She's beginning to suspect, I think.Suspect? How can it not know what it is?

[Tyrell explains to Roy why he can't extend his lifespan] The facts of life... to make an alteration in the evolvement of an organic life system is fatal. A coding sequence cannot be revised once it's been established.Why not?Because by the second day of incubation, any cells that have undergone reversion mutation give rise to revertant colonies, like rats leaving a sinking ship; then the ship... sinks.What about EMS-3 recombination?We've already tried it - ethyl, methane, sulfinate as an alkylating agent and potent mutagen; it created a virus so lethal the subject was dead before it even left the table.Then a repressor protein, that would block the operating cells.Wouldn't obstruct replication; but it does give rise to an error in replication, so that the newly formed DNA strand carries with it a mutation - and you've got a virus again... but this, all of this is academic. You were made as well as we could make you.But not to last.The light that burns twice as bright burns for half as long - and you have burned so very, very brightly, Roy. Look at you: you're the Prodigal Son; you're quite a prize!I've done... questionable things.Also extraordinary things; revel in your time.Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn't let you into heaven for.

I'm surprised you didn't come here sooner.It's not an easy thing to meet your maker.What could he do for you?Can the maker repair what he makes?

Milk and cookies kept you awake, eh, Sebastian?

Rick Deckard
We began to recognize in them a strange obsession. After all, they are emotionally inexperienced, with only a few years in which to store up the experiences which you and I take for granted. If we gift them with a past, we create a cushion or a pillow for their emotions, and consequently, we can control them better.Memories! You're talking about memories!
Dr. Eldon Tyrell
Rick Deckard
Is this to be an empathy test? Capillary dilation of the so-called blush response? Fluctuation of the pupil. Involuntary dilation of the iris...We call it Voight-Kampff for short.
