Hannibal Rising (2007)
Lady Murasaki Shikibu: [hugs Hannibal] Where have you been? You smell of smoke and blood.
[lifts army dog tag from under his shirt]
Lady Murasaki Shikibu: Where did you go?
Hannibal Lecter: I found them. The men who killed Mischa. I have their names.
Hannibal Lecter: [to Lady Murasaki, who has just discovered the Butcher's severed head] I hope you don't mind. I would have used a butcher knife, but the sword seemed so appropriate.
[putting the sword back]
Hannibal Lecter: Not a nick in the blade, I promise you. The butcher was like butter.
Hannibal Lecter: I've come to collect a head.
Inspector Popil: [looks at Hannibal's polygraph tape] It's vanilla. He reacts to nothing. It's monstrous.
Hannibal Lecter: [on Grutas] He ate my sister.
[an incapacitated Grutas chuckles]
Grutas: So did you!
Hannibal Lecter: Do you remember "Das männlein im walde", Herr Dortlich? Mischa loved that song. Let's sing for Mischa!
[He sings softly and walks the horse away from the tree where Dortlich is bound, tightening the rope around Dortlich's neck]
Hannibal Lecter: You're not singing...
Hannibal Lecter: [to a photo of his parents] Father, mother. I'm the youngest student they've ever admitted into medical school. It's a work scholarship. I think you would be pleased. Death duties on my uncle's estate has finally forced the sale of the château. Lady Murasaki will leave for Paris with me now that her residency is under threat. This work scholarship means I must spend much of my spare time preparing bodies for the anatomy class. My studies are fascinating and absorb me completely. Yet I still find myself thinking about my sister, and the men who took her.
Hannibal Lecter: Herr Dortlich, on behalf of myself and my late family, I thank you for coming.
[he removes the gag from Dortlich's mouth]
Hannibal Lecter: Do you remember the bathtub bubbling on the stove?
Enrikas Dortlich: [desperate] She was dead anyways, I swear.
[Hannibal opens Dortlich's lunch bag and examines a sandwich]
Hannibal Lecter: Ewww... so much mayonnaise, Herr Dortlich.
[He slicks the rope around Dortlich's neck with the excess mayonnaise]
Hannibal Lecter: I thought you would be bigger. I put your face on every bully I've ever hurt.
Grutas: Answer me this. Would you have fed me to your little sister because you loved her?
Hannibal Lecter: Yes.
Grutas: There. There you have it. Love. I love myself that much and I will never apologize to you.
Hannibal Lecter: "The very scent of her takes away the smell of the camp." Do you compose verse, Inspector, and keep it under your pillow?
Hannibal 8yrs: Hide quickly! Run away! Quick! This way! Quickly! Down to the lake.
[giggling, drawing on dock]
Hannibal 8yrs: M... for Mischa.
Hannibal Lecter: [holding a glass with wine] Good evening, Herr Kolnas. You drink better wine that you serve.
