New clip on iTunes

If anyone wants to watch Deckard pick the fish scale off his neighbor's plate and thoughtfully contemplate it, you should check out the "Blade Runner DVD UK Podcast" on iTunes.

I'd read about that bit in one of those scripts...


It might be 2:00 a.m. but the joint is still crowded
as noisy taxi drivers jostle each other for seats and
jabber in Kangaroo, a crude lingual mix of Chinese,
Japanese, French and Tagalog.

Deckard is hunched over his bowl of noodles, slurping
hungrily from his busy chopsticks.

Whap! The counterman slaps a serving of fish heads on
the counter in front of a CHINESE sitting next to

Startled by the sound Deckard glances at the bowl of
fish heads, then turns his attention back to his

But after two bites he frowns and turns to look at
the fish heads again.

The Chinese is eating the flesh hungrily from a head.
He cleans the skull and drops it on the plate.

Deckard stares at the heads with their blank stares
that seem to gaze at eternity.

Deckard is thinking.

The Chinese is eating.

Deckard frowns lost in furious thought. Suddenly he
reaches out and grabs a fish head.

The Chinese goes bug-eyed with indignation.

(in Chinese)
What the hell are you doing, you
moronic ahng mo dim bulb? That's
my goddamn dinner you (in English)
dumb shit!

Deckard is peeling scales off the fish head. He grabs
his wallet, produces the flake and compares it to the
scales from the head. He ignores the ranting of the
Chinese as he stares at the flake next to the scales.


(in Chinese)
What do you expect you get from
fish head, stupid?
(in English)
Elephant shit?

Thanks to the OP for the news of the clip on there - I was laughing at the take of the V.O. that was used. For me, it fell into the category of "so bad it was good" :lol:
