Hannibal Lecter: Clarice, there's nothing I'd love more in the world than to chat with you. Unfortunately, you've caught me at an awkward moment. Please forgive me.
Mason Verger: Oh, coulda, woulda, should. I mean what do you think about the money?
Paul Krendler: Five.
Mason Verger: Oh, let's just toss it off like 'five'! Let's say it with the respect it deserves.
Paul Krendler: Five-hundred-thousand-dollars.
Mason Verger: Well, that's better, but not much. Will it work?
Paul Krendler: It'll work. Won't be pretty.
Mason Verger: What ever is?
Mason Verger: Isn't it funny?
Clarice Starling: What's that?
Mason Verger: You can look at my face, but you shied when I said the name of God.
Paul Krendler: Who's agent Starling?
Hannibal Lecter: Paul, I told you, if you're going to be rude to our guests you'll have to sit at the kiddie table.
Cordell Doemling: One's eyes adjust to the darkness.
Hannibal Lecter: Are you by any chance trying to trace my whereabouts, you naughty girl?
Mason Verger: Cordell, I think you can leave us now.
Cordell Doemling: I thought I might stay. Perhaps... I could be useful.
Mason Verger: You can be *useful* seeing about my lunch.
Hannibal Lecter: Have you met my friend Mason Verger?

Clarice Starling: Face to face
Hannibal Lecter: Attractive, isn't he?
Hannibal Lecter: Now you're being rude, and I hate rude people.
Clarice Starling: How did he end up at your house?
Mason Verger: I invited him of course... to my pied-à-terre. I came to the door in my nicest come-hither outfit. I was concerned... that he'd be afraid of me. But he didn't seem to be. Afraid of me. That's almost funny now.
