Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard in Blade Runner: [narrating] "The report read 'Routine retirement of a replicant.' That didn't make me feel any better about shooting a woman in the back."

Harry Bryant (Captain of Los Angeles Police, Replicant Detector Squad), is your typical grizzled, cynical cop, with not a lot of patience or political correctness. He dismissively refers to replicants as ‘skin jobs’ and has a whole heap of trouble in his ‘in-tray’.
Today’s fun little problem is a squad of murderous replicants who have gone on the rampage back on Mars and are now fugitives, Earth-side. He assigns Rick Deckard to the job, after one of his best officers, Dave Holden is taken out of action by one of the suspects.
Blade Runner Quotes
Bryant wants Deckard to come out of retirement:
Bryant: I need ya, Decks. This is a bad one, the worst yet. I need the old blade runner, I need your magic.
Bryant briefs Deckard on the situation:
Bryant: They jumped a shuttle off-world, killed the crew and passengers. We found the shuttle drifting off the coast two weeks ago, so we know they’re around.
Bryant: No sir. Not embarrassing, because no one’s ever going to find out they’re down here. ‘Cause you’re gonna spot ‘em and you’re gonna air ‘em out!
Deckard: I don’t work here anymore. Give it to Holden. He’s good.
Bryant: I did. He can breathe okay, as long as nobody unplugs him.
Deckard is made an offer he cannot refuse:
Deckard: [getting up to leave] I was quit when I come in here, Bryant, I’m twice as quit now.
Bryant: Stop right where you are! You know the score, pal. You’re not cop, you’re little people!
[Deckard stops at the door]
Deckard: No choice, huh?
Bryant: [smiles] No choice, pal.
Bryant, on Deckard’s performance:
Harry Bryant: You could learn from this guy, Gaff. He’s a goddamned one-man slaughterhouse, that’s what he is. Four more to go!

Cast, crew, critics and colleagues give a behind-the-scenes, in-depth look at the film -- from its literary roots and inception through casting, production, visuals and special effects to its controversial legacy and place in Hollywood history."
1982 THEATRICAL VERSIONThis 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.
1982 INTERNATIONAL VERSIONAlso used on U.S. home video, laserdisc and cable releases up to 1992. This version is not rated, and contains some extended action scenes in contrast to the Theatrical Version.
1992 DIRECTOR'S CUTThe Director's Cut omits Deckard's voiceover narration and removes the "happy ending" finale. It adds the famously-controversial "unicorn" sequence, a vision that Deckard has which suggests that he, too, may be a replicant.
