And the LORD God commanded the man, saying,
Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat;
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou
eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.


— Genesis, 2:16–17


Roy Batty, android: It's not an easy thing to meet your Maker.
Eldon Tyrell, creator of androids: What can He do for you?
Batty: Can the Maker repair what He makes?
Tyrell: What seems to be the problem?
Batty: Death.
