Rachael meets Rick Deckard, the police officer who has been sent to kill her, but he feels sorry for her and they develop a relationship which leads to them running away together as fugitives at the end of the film. During their time together Deckard learns that not only is she a ‘replicant’, but that she is unaware of this.

She is a new ‘advanced model’ who thinks she is human and she has been implanted with false memories taken from the niece of her creator Eldon Tyrell. Deckard tries to convince her of her true nature by describing memories that only she should know about, but it is not an easy thing to learn that you are a machine.

Blade Runner Quotes

Deckard meets Rachael:

Rachael: Do you like our owl?
Rick Deckard: It’s artificial?
Rachael: Of course it is.
Deckard: Must be expensive.
Rachael: Very.
Rachael: I’m Rachael.
Deckard: Deckard.
Rachael: It seems you feel our work is not a benefit to the public.
Deckard: Replicants are like any other machine – they’re either a benefit or a hazard. If they’re a benefit, it’s not my problem.

Rick Deckard: You’re reading a magazine. You come across a full-page nude photo of a girl.
Rachael: Is this testing whether I’m a replicant or a lesbian, Mr. Deckard?

Deckard tries to tell Rachael what he knows:

Deckard: Remember when you were six? You and your brother snuck into an empty building through a basement window. You were going to play doctor. He showed you his, but when it got to be your turn you chickened and ran; you remember that? You ever tell anybody that? Your mother, Tyrell, anybody? Remember the spider that lived outside your window? Orange body, green legs. Watched her build a web all summer, then one day there’s a big egg in it. The egg hatched…
Rachael: The egg hatched…
Deckard: Yeah…
Rachael: …and a hundred baby spiders came out… and they ate her.
Deckard: Implants. Those aren’t your memories, they’re somebody else’s. They’re Tyrell’s niece’s.
Deckard: [he sees that she's deeply hurt by the implication] Ok, bad joke… I made a bad joke. You’re not a replicant. Go home, ok? No, really – I’m sorry, go home.

Rachael and Deckard attempt a strained approximation of flirting:

Rick Deckard: Say “Kiss me”.
Rachael: I can’t… rely on… my memories…
Deckard: Say “Kiss me”.
Rachael: Kiss me.
Deckard: I want you.
Rachael: I want you.
Deckard: Deckard: Again
Rachael: I want you.
[pauses]
Rachael: Put your hands on me.

After Rachael kills Leon:

Rick Deckard: Deckard: Shakes? Me too. I get ‘em bad. It’s part of the business.
Rachael: I’m not in the business… I am the business.

Rachael quizzes Deckard about his job:

Rachael: May I ask you a personal question?
Rick Deckard: Sure.
Rachael: Have you ever retired a human by mistake?
Deckard: No.
Rachael: But in your position, that is a risk.

Deckard discusses Rachael with her creator, Tyrell:

Rick Deckard: She’s a replicant, isn’t she?
Eldon Tyrell: I’m impressed. How many questions does it usually take to spot them?
Deckard: I don’t get it, Tyrell.
Tyrell: How many questions?
Deckard: Twenty, thirty, cross-referenced.
Tyrell: It took more than a hundred for Rachael, didn’t it?
Deckard: [realizing Rachael believes she's human] She doesn’t know.
Tyrell: She’s beginning to suspect, I think.
Deckard: Suspect? How can it not know what it is?

Rachael: What if I go north? Disappear. Would you come after me? Hunt me?
Deckard: No… No, I wouldn’t. I owe you one… But somebody would.
