* IdiotBall: Hannibal Lecter is possibly the most dangerous criminal in the world, and he's held under the tightest security imagineable. He's allowed to use a phone in return for co-operating... and left unsupervised, with the call not listened into. Shockingly, he abuses this trust and manages to get Graham's home address.

** Lecter claimed he was calling his lawyer. As insane as he is, he's still entitled to privacy for this communication. What was idiotic was giving him a phone that could call out at all, rather than having the lawyer dial ''him'' on a receive-only line.

* FreudianExcuse: Dolarhyde; as Will Graham notes, "As a child, my heart goes out to him. As an adult, he's irredeemable." Dolarhyde's grandmother was rather an abusive parent who subject him to physical and emotional abuse.

* SexierAlterEgo: Zig-Zagged. Dolarhyde believes the Red Dragon to be this but since it's all in his head it obviously doesn't change his harelip. However, in his efforts to "transform" he has taken up bodybuilding, which has made him very attractive to his female co-works in spite of his face. Also, his transformation is what gave him the confidence to approach Reba and find his first genuine human affection.
