Good evening, Clarice.
A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.
There are three major centers for transsexual surgery - Johns Hopkins, University of Minnesota, and Columbus Medical Center.
I've been in this room for eight years now Clarice. I know they will never, ever let me out while I'm alive. What I want is a view. I want a window where I can see a tree, or even water. I want to be in a federal institution, far away from Dr. Chilton.
And don't lie Clarice, or I'll know.
Advancement, of course. Listen carefully. Look deep within yourself, Clarice Starling. Go seek out Miss Mofet, an old patient of mine. M-o-f-e-t. Go now, I don't think Miggs could manage again quite so soon, even though he is crazy. [shouting] Go now!
Ready when you are, Sergeant Pembry.
People will say we're in love.
All good things to those who wait.
Tell me, Clarice ó have the lambs stopped screaming?
You know what you look like with your good bag and your cheap shoes? You look like a rube.
You fly back to school now, little Starling. Fly, fly, fly. Fly, fly, fly.
look for severe childhood disturbances associated with violence. Our Billy wasn't born a killer, Clarice. Oh no, he was made one through years of systematic abuse. Our Billy hates his own identity you see, he always has and he thinks that makes him a transsexual. But his pathology is a thousand times more savage and more terrifying. He wants to be reborn you see. Our Billy wants to be reborn, Clarice. And he will be reborn.
Your anagrams are showing, Doctor. Louis Friend? Iron sulfide, also known as fool's gold?
Hester Mofet. It's an anagram, isn't it, Doctor? Hester Mofet, "The rest of me". "Miss the rest of me," meaning that you rented that garage?
Oh my, does he hate us. Thinks I'm his nemesis
You still think you're going to walk on some beach and see the birdies? I don't think so. I called Senator Ruth Martin. She never heard of any deal with you. They scammed you, Hannibal.
You know, we get a lot of detectives here, but I must say I can't ever remember one as attractive.
We've tried to study him, of course, but he's much too sophisticated for the standard tests.
Do not touch the glass. Do not approach the glass. You pass him nothing but soft paper ó no pencils, no pens. No paper clips or staples in his paper. Use the sliding food carrier only, no exceptions. If he attempts to pass you anything, do not accept it. Do you understand?
I bit my wrists so I can diiiiie!
Believe me, you don't want Hannibal Lecter inside your head.
You don't know what pain is!
Was she a great big fat person?
