  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Dear Clarice, I have followed with enthusiasm the course of your disgrace and public shaming. My own never bothered me except for the inconvenience of being incarcerated, but you may lack perspective. In our discussions down in the dungeon it was apparent to me that your father, the dead night watchman, figures largely in your value system. I think your success in putting an end to Jame Gumb's career as a couturier pleased you most because you could imagine your father being pleased. But now, alas, you're in bad odour with the FBI. Do you imagine your daddy being shamed by your disgrace? Do you see him in his plain pine box crushed by your failure; a sorry, petty end of a promising career? What is worst about this humiliation Clarice? Is it how your failure will reflect on your mommy and daddy? Is your worst fear that people will now and forever believe they were indeed just good old trailer camp tornado bait white trash and that perhaps you are too? By the way I couldn't help noticing on the FBI's rather dull public website that I have been hoisted from the Bureau's archives of the common criminal and elevated to the more prestigious 10 Most Wanted list. Is this coincidence, or are you back on the case? If so, goody goody, cause I need to come out of retirement and return to public life. I imagine you sitting in a dark basement room bent over papers and computer screens. Is that accurate? Please tell me truly, Special Agent Starling. Regards, your old pal Hannibal Lecter, M.D. P.S. Clearly this new assignment is not your choice rather I suppose it is a part of the bargain but you accepted it Clarice. Your job is to craft my doom. So I am not sure how well I should wish you but I'm sure we'll have a lot of fun. Tata, H."

  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Is this coincidence, or are you back on the case? If so, goody-goody."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "See ya 'round."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Is this Clarice? Why, hello Clarice."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Are You Confused?"
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Come on Clarice. No. That's a good girl. Good."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Paul, remember what I said. If you can't be polite to our guests, you have to sit at the kiddies' table."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "On a similar note I must confess to you, I'm giving very serious thought -- to eating your wife."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Your job is to craft my doom, so I am not sure how well I should wish you. But I'm sure we'll have a lot of fun. Ta-ta, "H.""
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "-- would they have you back, you think? The FBI? Those people you despise almost as much as they despise you. Would they give you a medal, Clarice, do you think? Would you have it professionally framed and hang it on your wall to look at and remind you of your courage and incorruptibility? All you would need for that, Clarice, is a mirror."
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Mason, would you like a popper?"
  • (Anthony Hopkins) "Dear Clarice, I have followed with enthusiasm the course of your disgrace and public shaming. My own never bothered me, except for the inconvenience of being incarcerated. But you may lack perspective."

  • (Gary Oldman) "Now that's entertainment."
  • (Gary Oldman) "Tell me, Cordell, to you does that look like a wave goodbye -- or hello?"
