"He held it at arm’s length, through the bars, his forefinger along the spine. She reached across the barrier and took it. For an instant the tip of her forefinger touched Dr. Lecter’s. The touch crackled in his eyes. “Thank you, Clarice.” “Thank you, Dr. Lecter.” And that is how he remained in Starling’s mind. Caught in the instant when he did not mock. Standing in his white cell, arched like a dancer, his hands clasped in front of him and his head slightly to the side." - ― Thomas Harris, The Silence of the Lambs (via flyawaylittlestarling)
"The interesting thing is that, with the way the rights break down, is that it’s by character and by how they’re introduced in which book. So they don’t even have the rights to the Hannibal Lecter character. So they just have Clarice Starling, and Buffalo Bill, and Bejamin Raspail, and Barney. So they actually can’t acknowledge any of the Hannibal history because they don’t have that character. So it seems like it would make sense to partner with us, because who is Clarice Starling without Hannibal Lecter." -
SERIOUSLY?! This disapoints me. Who is Clarice Starling without Hannibal Lecter?! Really?!
