A young F.B.I. cadet must confide in an incarcerated and manipulative killer to receive his help on catching another serial killer who skins his victims.
The original line from the book is "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a big Amarone" not "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti".
Starling! Starling! Crawford wants to see you in his office.
Clarice Starling: Thank you, sir.
Crawford tells Clarice that Miggs died by swallowing his tongue after Hannibal said something that made him cry. Literally swallowing one's tongue is impossible. However, an unconscious person's tongue may sag backwards and block their airway, leading to suffocation. This is what is usually referred to by the phrase. It is not a voluntary act.
The producers wish to thank Adele, Bobby and the rest of the gang at Bufa's.
