Blade Runner fans might appreciate this one.

morbid_curious, the Voight-Kampff test and GWB.


George: Is this the test now?
Holden: Yes. You're over a swamp flying along in the a plane when all of the sudden you look down-
George: What one?
Holden: What?
George: What swamp?
Holden: It doesn't make any difference what swamp, it's completely hypothetical.
George: But how come I'd be there?
Holden: Maybe you're on federal business, maybe you're checking on some oil facilities, who knows? You look down and you see a metropolis, George, it's calling toward you-
George: Metropolis, what's that?
Holden: Know what a city is?
George: Of course.
Holden: Same thing.
George: I never seen a "metropolis". (pause) But I understand what you mean.
Holden: You look down, and you see the city's been flipped on its back by a hurricane, George.
George: Do y'all make up these questions, Mr. Holden, or do they write them down for you?
Holden: The city lays on its back, its people baking in the hot sun, climbing over each other trying to evacuate but they can't, not without your help, but you're not helping.
George: What do y'all mean I'm not helping?
Holden: I mean, you're not helping. Why is that George? (pause) They're just questions, George. In answer to your query, they're written down for me. It's a test, designed to provoke an emotional response. (pause) Shall we continue? Describe in single words, only the good things that come into your mind about: your re-election.
George: My re-election?
Holden: Yeah.
George: Let me tell y'all about my re-election. (shot fired)

EDIT - Fellas, no fighting! Please, won't anybody think of the androids?
