Tannhauser's Gate

"For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess I'm suddenly
having a hard time leaving it. Of course, they say every atom in our bodies was
once part of a star. Maybe I's not leaving... Maybe I's going home."

Blade Runner

In Blade Runner, the dying replicant, Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer), introspectively Says
the phrase regarding his own death: I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark
near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
Time to die..In the Channel 4 documentary On the Edge of Blade Runner, Rutger Hauer,
director Ridley Scott, and screenwriter David Peoples assert that Hauer wrote the Tears
in Rain speech, yet the basic speech was in Peoples draft screenplays; one included the
sentence I rode on the back decks of a blinker and watched c-beams glitter in the dark,
near the Tannhauser Gate.

Tears in the Rain

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