Benny Orosco | 10 comments Rick administers the Voigt-Kampff test to Rachael Rosen. The test consists of a series of questions meant to illicit empathetic responses from the test subjects. If the subjects display empathy, they are deemed to not be androids. If they are androids, they risk being retired by the police. The questions mostly center around scenarios involving animals, but in almost all the scenarios, Rachael does not display the kind of empathy that Rick expects real humans to display. The test seemed to not work and Rachel tries to bribe Rick to not tell the police.
