Blade Runner and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep

Though the context of the conversation between Luba Luft and Deckerd in the dressing room scene of the movie is vastly different from that of the book, the tone of the scene seemed to be similar. In both instances, Luba is incredibly skeptical of Deckerd and doesn’t really seem to want to be bothered with anything that he is saying to her. Though in the book Deckerd comes right out in the open about his intentions with the Voigt-Kampff test and believing she is an android,¬†Deckerd in the movie assumes an alias in order to get her alone.¬†Though in the book Luba calls the police on Deckerd, not believing his word at being a member of the San Fransisco Police department, and Luba in the move attacks him and runs away, both versions of the scene involve her being completely untrusting of Deckerd and his intentions towards her.
