Emil's Memories is a Side Quest in NieR: Automata.
"You happened upon Emil admiring the lunar tears around the commercial facility. He said they brought back memories, and also filled him with an emotion that he couldn't quite describe. He then asked you to find more lunar tears somewhere in each region, hoping that they might help him understand his feelings."
"At last, Emil remembers everything - including a place that was very important to him. In gratitude, he offered to show you his special place and gave you a key to the elevator in the commercial facility. He will be waiting for you in the basement."
"After you found a wide space covered with lunar tears in the basement of the commercial facility, Emil appeared and told you of his life. He was built long ago as a weapon, and he himself was but one of many copies produced during the war against the aliens. He said that the place you were standing was very dear to the original Emil who had lived so long before. Your Emil then wistfully explained how echoes of that memory lingered on inside him."
