                I love the ending scene from Blade Runner, where the character Roy Batty(played by Rutger Hauer) utters those now famous last words.... unscripted, plus the the background music by Vangelis was fitting.

                "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
                Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.
                All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain...
                Time to die"
                "In modern war... you will die like a dog for no good reason."
                Ernest Hemingway.

                  Spike Milligan

                  The long toll of the brave
                  Is not lost in darkness
                  Over the fruitful earth
                  And athwart the seas
                  Hath passed the light of noble deeds
                  Unquenchable forever.
