Blade runner.

Roy Batty (alias, Rutger Hauer)

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe: attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched the c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser gates. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die".

P. K. Dick
Many think that this short but wonderful monologue (recited in the film "Blade Runner", by the organic android Roy Batty) was written by the famous american science fiction writer Philip K. Dick.

However, in reality, P. K. Dick never wrote this monologue!

In fact, the screenplay of the film "Blade Runner" (film only loosely based on the novel by Dick "Do androids dream of electric sheep?") was entirely written by Hampton Fancher and David Webb Peoples.

And the interpreter of the android "Roy Batty", the actor Rutger Hauer, would inserted, on its own initiative, the words "like tears in rain".
