Did you catch the Pale Fire references (and quoted lines) in Blade Runner 2049?

Cells interlinked within cells interlinked
Within one stem. And, dreadfully distinct
Against the dark, a tall white fountain played.

Time to reread Pale Fire, the unofficial Book Mascot of the old NYT Meander.

I have no real ada to reread Pale Fire.
