I do feel closer to Hannibal here. God only knows where I'd be without him.

Will

Abigail: How many people have you killed?
Lecter: Many more than your father.
Abigail: Are you going to kill me?
Lecter: I'm so sorry Abigail. I'm sorry I couldn't protect you in this life.

I am nothing like your Dad.

Lecter

Anthony Dimmond: Clearly you found him as distasteful as I did.
Hannibal: On the contrary.

Hannibal's not God. Wouldn't have any fun being God. Defying God, that's his idea of a good time.

Will

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

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

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.

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

Hannibal follows several trains of thought at once without distraction from any. One of the trains is always for his own amusement.

Will

Hannibal. I forgive you.

Will

I still believe I am in conscious control of my actions. Given your history, that's a good day.

Bedelia

Hannibal Quotes

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?

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.
