Scene 3

Replicant or Repli-won't?

  • Deckard takes a flying car over to the Tyrell Corporation—the same pyramid building from the movie's beginning.
  • Deckard goes to the penthouse of the corporation's founder and chief scientist, Dr. Eldon Tyrell, where he meets Tyrell's assistant Rachael, who questions him about his work.
  • Tyrell enters and asks Deckard to perform the same test on Rachael that Holden was performing on Leon at the beginning of the movie.
  • Deckard obliges, going through the test and asking Rachael about her feelings on eating boiled dog and killing wasps.
  • At a certain point, Tyrell asks Rachael to leave. Deckard says that she's a replicant—as Tyrell knows—but a very craftily disguised one who comes close to passing the test.
  • Tyrell explains that Rachael doesn't know she's a replicant. She has fake memories, which allow her to have more normal human reactions.
