** As if being kidnapped by the Red Dragon wasn't bad enough, Chilton also has to endure him having a soapy argument with his girlfriend.

** Made even better by Hannibal's reactionary shot, a stoic version of "WTF?"
*** While Mason Verger revealing the pig maze in "Naka-choko" has its share of horrifying moments, there are bits that are hilarious in their outlandishness. Like when the meat dummy is first debuted for demonstration.

* The forensic team's reaction to Will's outburst at Jack in "Coquilles". After Jack's "I did not hear that," they quickly scamper off into the background. Although they're probably just trying to save Will the embarrassment of getting chewed out by the boss in front of colleagues, it's reminiscent of siblings getting the hell out of Dodge when one of them is about to be scolded by a parent.

** Hannibal's 'grocery shopping'. He picks a certain business card from his Rolodex, goes to his box of recipes to choose a suitable course, brings the respective organ back, prepares it to cook and puts it in his fridge. And then he does it again. And again. This is cut together with the forensic team examining the bodies and noting the missing organs...and then just how the missing organs are being prepared...
** Particularly the bit where they mention the missing intestines and they actually say "Either someone's got short bowels or someone's [[{{Squick}} making sausages]]". [[CrossesTheLineTwice Cut to Hannibal doing exactly that]].
* Also from "Sorbet":
-->'''Jimmy''': We were looking at donor lists for a heart or kidneys. Now we're looking for hearts, kidneys, livers, stomachs, pancreases, lungs... this guy is missing a spleen. A spleen! Who the hell gets a spleen transplant?!
* In "Fromage", Franklyn is trying to talk Tobias down, rather aping Lecter -- and then Lecter [[spoiler: gets fed up and snaps Franklyn's neck.]]

** Chilton and Hannibal [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow both knowing that Hannibal is the Chesapeake Ripper, that Chilton knows this, and that Hannibal knows he knows this]] leads to another funny moment at the dinner party where Chilton is staring at Lecter in abject wide-eyed terror, and Lecter notices and ''winks'' at him, giving Chilton all the reason he needs to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere haul ass out of there]]. It felt like Creator/AnthonyHopkins took over Mads Mikkelsen's body for that one little moment, just to have Hannibal screw with Chilton in the series like he did in the books and movies.

* In "Yakimono", the first thing a traumatized, blood soaked Chilton says to Will after showing up on his porch?:
-->'''Chilton:''' May I use your shower, please?
* It's BlackComedy, but Hannibal calling out 'One moment, please!' in the most non-nonchalant way possible to FBI agents at the door while drugging and choking Chilton is somewhat hysterical.
* Chilton's rant about how the odds are stacked against him, as compared to the evidence against Will: "Abel Gideon is half eaten in my guest room. I have corpses on my property. You just threw up an ear!"
* You've just got to pity Chilton a tiny little bit when he pulls a gun on Will and gets rewarded with a hilariously disdainful non-reaction -- in part because Will's almost certainly thinking, "Hannibal's really scraping the barrel if he expects anybody to believe ''you're'' the Ripper," and ''especially'' with Chilton yelling commands like Will's a naughty puppy.

** Taken even further in the next episode "Tome-Wan", where Hannibal just stares open-mouthed as Mason puts his feet on his desk and stabs a penknife into his chair. Seeing the normally unflappable Hannibal simply dazed with the intent to kill one of the rudest people he's ever met is quite amusing.

It's probably the very height of ''Hannibal'''s BlackComedy- the actual events make it on one hand ''extremely'' disturbing, but at the same time it's an oddly hilarious sequence because of the atmosphere that Michael Pitt's performance and the background music give.
