Funny: The Silence of the Lambs
  • Of the darkly comic variety, as Silence ends with the wit of Hannibal Lecter: "I'm having an old friend for dinner."
  • Hannibal's atheistic funeral service: "Mischa, we take comfort in knowing there is no God. That you are not enslaved in a Heaven, made to kiss God's ass forever. What you have is better than Paradise. You have blessed oblivion. I miss you every day."
  • The Scene in Hannibal when Starling is listening to tapes being recorded of her sessions with Lecter. Krendler decides to be a jerk and ogle a nude sketch Hannibal drew of Starling in the letter he sent her, not knowing Starling is in the room with her with the lights barely on. Just to troll him, she yanks her headphones out of the recorder, causing Hannibal's Voice to echo in the loud speakers scaring the living crap out of Krendler.
  • Some lines from Silence:
    • "Precious? Are you up there you little shit?"
    • "Oh, and senator just one more thing! [beat] Love your suit."
  • In the film adaptation of Hannibal, a lobotomized Krendler comments that the piece of his brain that Hannibal is sautéing smells good, and Hannibal allows him to try it. He likes it.
  • Hannibal suffering a trip in an airplane's coach section, between a mother and baby and her bratty older son.
