I hope it was intelligently designed.

they had head shots and full bios of the runaways.  Why were they wasting time with a VK test?

I can't watch that part without laughing, because of the scene in The Fifth Element where the general (same actor) refuses to let Leeloo out of the genetic-fabrication tank until she's proven to not be dangerous.

I won't believe it unless it has the lifeless film noir voiceover.  Which is what really made the film.  As opposed to Scott beating us over the head with his interpretations.

You liked the voiceovers? I get the Sam Spade thing they were trying to do but they were really unnecessary, imo.

The first time I saw the movie, it was a screening of the director's cut without the voiceover. Then a few years later I saw the original on TV, and it all seemed to make more sense with the voiceover explaining things. Maybe it was a bit overdone, but not unnecessary. One thing Scott got right in the director's cut, though, was to take out the original ending.

There's a theory that Rachel was based on Tyrell's daughter/niece. Which, if you extend it, could mean that replicants are going to look like a real human. So you are presented with a possible replicant - is it a replicant, or the human it was based on?

I do eyes, just.... just eyes. Just genetic design. Just eyes.
You Nexus, huh? I design your eyes.

But if he could just pull off green eyes, it would save him a lot of trouble.
