The clip The Voight-Kampff test from Blade Runner (1982) with Morgan Paull, Brion James
You're in a desert, walking along in the sand, when...
Is this the test, now?
Yes. You're in a desert, walking along in the sand when you look down...
Doesn't make any difference. It's completely hypothetical.
But how come I'd be there?
Maybe you're fed up.
Maybe you wanna be by yourself. Who knows?
You look down and see a tortoise.
It's crawling towards you...
Tortoise? What's that?
You know what a turtle is?
I've never seen a turtle.
But I understand what you mean.
You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on its back.
Do you make up these questions, Mr. Holden?
Or do they write them down for you?
The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the sun beating its legs, trying to turn itself over, but it can't not without your help.
You're not helping.
What do you mean I'm not?
I mean, you're not helping.
Why is that, Leon?
They're just questions, Leon.
In answer to your query, they're written down for me.
It's a test designed to provoke an emotional response.
Shall we continue?
Describe in single words only the good things that come into your mind about your mother.
Let me tell you about my mother.
