Hannibal Lecter: Think to yourself that every day is your last. The hour to which you do not look forward will come as a welcome surprise. As for me, when you want a good laugh, you will find me in fine state, fat and sleek, a true hog of Epicurus's herd.


Actor Ralph Fiennes speaks with an impaired speech, mentioned as due to his character's Cleft Palette repair, but when we hear "flashbacks" to his childhood through voice over, the child voice actor portraying his character's younger self speaks without impediment.
