taste.wav (70K)TrueSpeech

Administrator: I don't believe Lecter's even seen a woman in eight years. And oh, are you ever his taste... so to speak.

rube.wav (528K)TrueSpeech

Lecter: You know what you look like to me, with your good bag and your cheap shoes? You look like a rube. A well scrubbed, hustling rube with a little taste. Good nutrition has given you some length of bone, but you're not more than one generation from poor white trash, are you Agent Starling? And that accent you've tried so desparately to shed? Pure West Virginia. What's your father, dear? Is he a coal miner? Does he stink of olean? You know how quickly the boys found you... all those tedious sticky fumblings in the back seats of cars...while you could only dream of getting out... getting anywhere... getting all the way to the FBI.
Clarice: You see alot, Doctor.

therapy.wav (90K)TrueSpeech

Clarice: If you didn't kill him then who did, sir?
Lecter: Who can say? Best thing for him, really. His therapy was going nowhere.

liver.wav (138K)TrueSpeech

Lecter: A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver. With some fava beans and a nice chianti.

lamb.wav (450K)TrueSpeech

Lecter: What became of your lamb, Clarice?
Clarice: He killed him.
Lecter: You still wake up sometimes, don't you? Wake up in the dark and hear the screaming of the lambs.
Clarice: Yes.
Lecter: And you think if you save poor Katherine, you can make them stop, don't you? You think if Katherine lives, you won't wake up in the dark ever again to that awful screaming of the lambs.
Clarice: I don't know.... I don't know.
Lecter: Thank you, Clarice.

senator.wav (592K)TrueSpeech

Lecter: Tell me, Senator. Did you nurse Katherine yourself?
Senator Martin: What?
Lecter: Did you breast feed her?
Aide: Now wait a minute...
Senator Martin: Yes. I did.
Lecter: Toughened your nipples, didn't it?
Aide: You sonofabitch...
Lecter: Amputate a man's leg and he can still feel it tickling. Tell me Mom, when your little girl is on the slab, where will it tickle you?
Senator Martin: Take this "thing" back to Baltimore.
Lecter: Five foot ten, strongly built, about 180 pounds. Hair blonde, eyes pale blue. He'd be about 35 now. He said he lived in Philadelphia but may have lied. That's all I can remember Mom, but if I think of any more I will let you know. Oh, and Senator? Just one more your suit.
