Trivia: Whenever Deckard occupies his room there is a low/high hum if you listen very carefully! This sound is very like or if not the very same low hum that can be heard on the Nostromo in the first Alien movie (1979). (00:31:30)

Suggested correction: I'd always assumed it was from Alien, too, but years later I discovered that sound effect actually came from The Empire Strikes Back! Specifically when Luke is searching for Darth Vader in the dark corridors underneath Cloud City near the climax.

Factual error: When Leon gets shot in the head, Deckard is untouched by any blood, brains etc despite being directly in front of him - he should be covered in something from the head wound.

Suggested correction: From a human, yes. Leon isn't a human. We don't know anything about replicant anatomy. For all we know, they might not have any blood, and their brains might not even be in their skulls.

Other mistake: When Deckard visits the Tyrell Corporation, he prepares to test Rachel with the "VK" machine. He is shown putting his briefcase of the table and lifting the "VK" machine out and onto the table. If you look closely, the "VK" machine is already on the table and Harrison Ford is miming the lifting - there is nothing in his hands! (00:19:45)

Trivia: In the scene where Ford and the other policeman take off in a police car, there is a shot of the inside of the car showing a computer screen with a flashing word "purge" on it. The screen was originally used in "Alien" when Ripley set off the shuttle to escape from Nostromo. (00:10:30)

Question: When Roy and Leon enter Chew's lab, Chew is muttering to himself in his native language. What language is he speaking exactly, and what is the translation of what he is saying? (00:28:05)

Chosen answer: The language is Chinese Cantonese, and is saying something like "... Now we can more time.", and when the replicants came inside the lab he says "... What a f*** doing here..."
