Synopsis: The continuing saga of Hannibal Lecter, the murdering cannibal. He is presently in Italy and works as a curator at a museum. Clarice Starling, the FBI agent whom he aided to apprehend a serial killer, was placed in charge of an operation but when one of her men botches it, she's called to the mat by the Bureau. One high ranking official, Paul Krendler has it in for her. But she gets a reprieve because Mason Verger, one of Lecter's victims who is looking to get back at Lecter for what Lecter did to him, wants to use Starling to lure him out. When Lecter sends her a note she learns that he's in Italy so she asks the police to keep an eye out for him. But a corrupt policeman who wants to get the reward that Verger placed on him, tells Verger where he is. But they fail to get him. Later Verger decides to frame Starling which makes Lecter return to the States. And the race to get Lecter begins.

Sometimes...

Dr. Lecter and I would talk|when things got quiet enough...

about the science courses|I was taking, and--

Some kind of mail-order courses|in psychology, Nurse Barney?

Some kind of mail-order courses|in psychology, Nurse Barney?

No, sir.

See, I don't consider|psychology a science...

and neither did Dr. Lecter.

Now, Barney, while you|were working at the asylum...

you observed Clarice Starling|and Hannibal Lecter interacting.

you observed Clarice Starling|and Hannibal Lecter interacting.

Interacting?

Talking to one another.

Yes. It seemed to me that they--

I see you're eager to justify|your consulting fee...

but why don't we start|with what you saw...

not what you thought about|what you saw?

Cordell, don't be like that.

Barney can give us his opinion.

Barney, give us your opinion|of what you saw.

What was it between them?

Most of the time...

Dr. Lecter didn't respond at all|to visitors.

He'd just, for instance...

open his eyes long enough|to insult some academic...

who was there to look over him.

With Starling,|he answered her questions.

She interested him.

She intrigued him.

He thought she was|charming and amusing.

Clarice Starling|and Hannibal Lecter...

became friendly?

Inside a kind|of formal structure, yes.

And he was fond of her?

Thank you, Barney.

Thank you very much|for your candor.

And keep all those|wonderful items...

from your personal Lecter|treasure trove coming.

I've enjoyed them immensely.

Mr. Verger.

I almost forgot.

I might be able|to get a cookie down.

What do you say, Cordell?

I think it would kill you.

How much?

thousand.

Cordell...

cut a check for $250,000.

How can she sleep|at a time like this?

She was on a jump-out squad|all night.

She's saving her strength.

No problem, sir.

We got some guy named Bolton|from the D.C. Police.

All right, everyone,|pay attention.

Here's the layout.

Excuse me.|I'm Officer Bolton, D.C. Police.

I see that from your badge.|How do you do?

I'm in charge here.

Officer Bolton,|I'm Special Agent Starling.

So we don't get off|on the wrong foot...

Let me explain why|we're all here.

I'm here|because I know Evelda Drumgo.

I've arrested her twice|on RICO warrants.

DEA and ATF,|in addition to backing me up...

are here for the drugs|and the weapons.

You're here because our mayor|wants to appear tough on drugs--

especially after his own|cocaine conviction--

and hopes he can accomplish that|by having you join us today.

You got a smart mouth, lady.

Officer, if you wouldn't mind...

I'd appreciate it|if you'd let me continue.

All right, take a look.

Fish market--|back's on the water.

Across the street, ground floor,|is the meth lab.

Evelda Drumgo is HIV positive.

She will spit and bite|if she's cornered, so watch it.

If you happen to be the one|who puts her in a patrol car...

in front of the news cameras,|Officer Bolton...

you don't want|to push her head down.

She'll likely have a needle|in her hair.

We want to take her inside,|not out in the street.

We can get closest with the van.

If it looks good,|on my signal...

we hit the front,|DEA hits the back...

D.C.P.D. backing them up.

She'll have her watchers out|at least three blocks around.

They've tipped her before|in time...

so let's not make spectacles|of ourselves.

-Pretty busy today.|-I agree.

Can I please get|a cup of coffee?

-Did you see that?|-That's a roger.

What's up, man?

God damn it. It's her--

with three guys.|They're all packing.

She's carrying something.

She's got a baby.

Hey, Brigham,|it's too crowded.

There are too many people.

I say we call it off.|What do you say?
