** At least one of the methods Roy suggests is dismissed by Tyrell as not working on ''mature'' Replicants. His company probably could build them to last longer if he wanted to. In which case he was not actually trying to extend the lifespan, but to make sure the limitation cannot be broken by anything they could think of.

** Perhaps Deckard is not the first person to fall in love with a replicant. Perhaps they wanted to try to extend their loved ones lifespans by any means...now imagine them watching their loved one dying because they tampered with the built in genetic time bomb...

* When Tyrell and Roy are discussing the methods to try and extend Roy's life, Tyrell cites reason after reason why the proposals wouldn't work. And the way he says them, it's obvious he's talking about things he witnessed. So, just how many Replicants did Tyrell burn through trying to figure out ways to extend their lives beyond the mandated "expiration date" before he concluded that it wasn't possible? And were they aware of and voluntarily facing the risks?

* When J.F. Sebastian is introduced to Roy Batty and finds out that Roy and Pris are Nexus 6 models, Sebastian proudly says, "There's some of me in you!" Just in time for a cuckoo clock to go off...

* * For quite some time, the contrast between Zhora and Pris has intrigued and bothered me, specifically the way they seemed to exchange roles: Pris started as a "basic pleasure model" and develops into a combatant of sorts with her [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Ty Lee flips]] and [[MurderousThighs Xenia Onatopp moves]], while Zhora started as an assassin and became a stripper [[FauxActionGirl who barely puts up a fight against Deckard before fleeing]]. Except their divergent reactions to combat situations make perfect sense with their initial programming - Zhora was designed for political hits and stealth, so she'd not only be useless in a fair fight (especially against someone like Deckard), but ''know'' it. Pris, meanwhile, would have no experience accurately assessing the threat levels of other people, so she'd just overconfidently assume (much like Leon) that her advanced replicant capabilities would be more than enough advantage.

Added DiffLines:

** Or possibly Tyrell is aware of his own selfishness and lack of empathy and suspects he'd fail the test even if he isn't a replicant.

Added DiffLines:

* When asked about his mother in the first scene, Leon replies "I'll tell you about my mother!" before pulling out a pistol and shooting the interrogator. He's a son of a gun.

* In his first scene, Tyrell declines to take the VK test -- partly to see if Rachel will pass it, but also because in earlier versions of the script he is a replicant himself.

* Perfect evidence for the "Deckard is a replicant" theory: in his job as blade runner, he refers to the death of replicants as "retirement." What does Deckard want to do with his career? He wants to retire.
