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

Hard to believe he improvised that line on set, isn't it?  A truly talented artist.

I'd be hard pressed to find a line in Hollywood as beautiful...

FWIW he improvised that line on the spot...put his own spin on the -script...and it was better.

Was one of my favorite actors growing up. As stated his legacy will be Blade Runner but I always liked the character he played in Flesh and Blood.

Hauer's line was too long for him to do inscriptions.  I had asked him to do "I want more life, f**ker."  I think of that as the quintessential Roy Batty line, even more so than the Tannhauser Gate.

RIP Rutger, you were amazing!
