I am nothing like your Dad.

Lecter

I am a source of stability and clarity, Franklin, I am not your friend.

I'm happy to sing for my supper.

If you're free, my wife and I would love to have you for dinner.

Hannibal: I gave you a rare gift, and you didn't want it. You would deny me my life.
Will: Not your life.
Hannibal: My freedom then, you would take that from me. Confine me to a prison cell. Did you believe you could change me the way I've changed you?
Will: I already did.

Gideon: He is the devil, Mr. Graham. He is smoke. You'll never catch the ripper. He won't be caught. If you want him you'll have to kill him.
Will: Fair enough.

Cracks are not always weaknesses. A life lived accrues in the cracks.

Bedelia: Is Will Graham still alive?
Hannibal: Will Graham was not a suitable substitute for therapy.

Will: I feel like I have dragged you into my world.
Hannibal: No, I got here on my own, but I appreciate the company.

Will: I know who I am. I'm not so sure I know who you are anymore, but I am certain one of us killed Abigail.
Lecter: Whoever that was killed the others.

Hannibal: You fantasize about how you would kill me. Tell me, how would you do it?
Will: With my bare hands.

Will: I guess you dodged a bullet with me.
Alana: I don't feel like I dodged a bullet. I feel wounded.
