Will: I don't intend Hannibal to be caught a second time.
Bedelia: Can't live with him, can't live without him. Is that what this is?
Will: I guess. I guess this is my becoming.
Bedelia: What you're becoming is pathological.

It's all over for me. I can't give you to him. Do you know what he would do you to you? He'd BITE you. It's better you leave with me.


Will: Is Hannibal IN LOVE with me?!?
Bedelia: Could he daily feel a stab of hunger for you, and find nourishment at the very sight of you? Yes. But do you ache for him?

Chilton: What am I doing here?
Dolarhyde: Atoning, Dr Chilton.

You set me up. You knew it. You put your hand on me in the picture like a pet.


You could have provided anything that Chilton could have. That would have been your lip I was tasting...Again.

Hannibal Lecter does have agency in the world. He has you.


Alana: We were trying to enrage him.
Hannibal: Congratulations.

The tragedy of what happened to Chilton has put me in an excellent humor.

Hannibal: It didn't hold up to scrutiny.
Chilton: Of course it didn't, I was lying! On your behalf!

Will: He didn't murder those families, he changed them.
Hannibal: Don't you crave change, Will?

Molly: You look different. You said that you wouldn't be the same when you came.
Will: You said you would.
Molly: Hmmm. Boy was I wrong about that!

Hannibal Quotes

Bedelia: Forgiveness is too great and difficult for one person. It requires two. A betrayer and a betrayed. Which one are you?
Hannibal: I'm vague on those details.
Bedelia: Betrayal and forgiveness are best seen as something akin to falling in love.
Hannibal: You cannot control with respect to whom you fall in love.

Graham: What are you smiling at?
Lecter: Peaking behind the curtain, I'm just curious how the FBI goes about its business when it's not kicking in doors.
