Eldon Tyrell is the president of the Tyrell Corporation who manufacture ‘replicants’, ultra-realistic self-aware android beings who are virtually indistinguishable from their human counterparts. The replicants are sold as slaves to be used strictly off-world, but come with a fixed four year life span. Whether this is due to a deliberate corporate policy of built-in obsolescence or, as Tyrell insists: “You were made as well as we could make you” is for you to decide.

However, this design flaw becomes Tyrell’s undoing as the Replicants, not happy about their impending death, return to their maker to exact their revenge.

Blade Runner Quotes

Eldon Tyrell: “More human than human” is our motto.

Tyrell: 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.
Deckard: Memories! You’re talking about memories!

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

Tyrell: Would you… like to be upgraded?
Roy Batty: I had in mind something a little more radical.
Tyrell: What… what seems to be the problem?
Batty: Death.
Tyrell: Death; ah, well that’s a little out of my jurisdiction. You…
Batty: *I want more life!*

Tyrell explains to Batty why he can’t extend his lifespan:

Tyrell: 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.
Batty: Why not?
Tyrell: 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.
Batty: What about EMS-3 recombination?
Tyrell: 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.
Batty: Then a repressor protein, that would block the operating cells.
Tyrell: 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.
Batty: But not to last.
Tyrell: 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!
Batty: I’ve done… questionable things.
Tyrell: Also extraordinary things; revel in your time.
Batty: Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn’t let you into heaven for.

Tyrell: Is this to be an empathy test? Capillary dilation of the so-called blush response? Fluctuation of the pupil. Involuntary dilation of the iris…
Deckard: We call it Voight-Kampff for short.

Disc Three:

1982 THEATRICAL VERSION

This is the version that introduced U.S. movie-going audiences to a revolutionary film with a new and excitingly provocative vision of the near-future. It contains Deckard/Harrison Ford's character narration and has Deckard and Rachel's (Sean Young) "happy ending" escape scene.

1992 DIRECTOR'S CUT
