Prometheus Extended Engineer Scene

prometheus deleted scene

Take a look at an exclusive extended scene from Prometheus HD digital release!

Probably the biggest question on everyone’s mind is what did David the Android say to the Engineer when he brought Weyland there that caused the Engineer to take off David’s head? Linguistics consultant Dr. Anil Biltoo of the SOAS Language Centre answers. The line that David speaks to the Engineer (which is from a longer sequence that didn’t make the final edit) is as follows:

“/ida hmanəm aɪ kja namṛtuh zdɛ:taha/…/ghʷɪvah-pjorn-ɪttham sas da:tṛ kredah/”

A serviceable translation into English is:

“This man is here because he does not want to die. He believes you can give him more life.”
