Hannibal (2001) Poster


Gary Oldman: Mason Verger


  • Mason Verger : So what do ya think, Cordell? Does Lecter want to fuck her or kill her or eat or what?

    Cordell Doemling : Probably all three, though I wouldn't want to predict in what order.

  • Mason Verger : I guess now you wish you would've fed the rest of me to the dogs.

    Hannibal Lecter : No, Mason, I much prefer you the way you are.

  • Mason Verger : Cordell, shoot him! Get the gun and shoot him!

    Cordell Doemling : Go into the pen?

    Mason Verger : Yes!

    Cordell Doemling : No, I'm staying out of this.

    Mason Verger : You're involved, is what you are, in all of it! Now do it!

    Cordell Doemling : No.

    Mason Verger : Yes!

    Hannibal Lecter : [Cordell is standing behind Mason's wheelchair on a ledge overlooking the wild boar]  Hey, Cordell! Why don't you push him in? You can always say it was me.

  • Mason Verger : When the fox hears the rabbit scream he comes a-runnin'... but not to help.

  • Mason Verger : Isn't it funny?

    Clarice Starling : What's that?

    Mason Verger : You can look at my face, but you shied when I said the name of God.

  • Mason Verger : Tell me, Cordell, to you does that look like a wave goodbye... or hello?

  • Clarice Starling : How did he end up at your house?

    Mason Verger : I invited him of course... to my pied-à-terre. I came to the door in my nicest come-hither outfit. I was concerned... that he'd be afraid of me. But he didn't seem to be. Afraid of me. That's almost funny now.

  • Mason Verger : Now *that's* entertainment!

  • Mason Verger : You know, I thank God for what happened. It was my salvation. Have you accepted Jesus, Agent Starling? Do you have faith?

    Clarice Starling : I was raised Lutheran.

    Mason Verger : That's not what I asked.

  • Mason Verger : Oh, coulda, woulda, should. I mean what do you think about the money?

    Paul Krendler : Five.

    Mason Verger : Oh, let's just toss it off like 'five'! Let's say it with the respect it deserves.

    Paul Krendler : Five-hundred-thousand-dollars.

    Mason Verger : Well, that's better, but not much. Will it work?

    Paul Krendler : It'll work. Won't be pretty.

    Mason Verger : What ever is?

  • Mason Verger : I guess you wish now that you fed the rest of me to the dogs

    Hannibal Lecter : No Mason. No I much prefer you the way you are.

  • Mason Verger : I have immunity from the Justice Department, and I have immunity from the Risen Jesus. And nobody beats the Riz!

  • Mason Verger : I might be able to get a cookie now, what do you think, Cordell?

    Cordell Doemling : I think it would kill you.

  • Mason Verger : It seemed like a good idea at the time.

  • Mason Verger : The good doctor approached me with a piece of broken mirror. "Try this,"

    Hannibal Lecter : Try peeling off your face...

    Mason Verger : "... and feeding it to the dogs."

  • [Mason Verger is going to have Hannibal Lecter fed to wild pigs] 

    Mason Verger : You will stay for the evening's entertainment, won't you, Cordell?

    Cordell Doemling : If it's all the same to you, I think I'd rather not.

    Mason Verger : Rather not? Or *will* not?

  • Mason Verger : Cordell, I think you can leave us now.

    Cordell Doemling : I thought I might stay. Perhaps... I could be useful.

    Mason Verger : You can be *useful* seeing about my lunch.

  • [after getting off the phone with Paul Krendler] 

    Mason Verger : Cocksucker.

  • Paul Krendler : I don't understand why she didn't turn it in she is such a straight arrow

    Mason Verger : She didn't turn it in because she didn't receive it, she didn't receive it because it wasn't sent it wasn't sent because he didn't write it he didn't write because I DID! So what do you think will it work?

    Paul Krendler : It'll work won't be pretty.

    Mason Verger : Whatever is?

    [Line disconnects] 

    Mason Verger : Cocksucker!

  • Mason Verger : [stoned, self-mutilating]  That's entertainment!

  • [Hannibal and Mason see each other for the first time in years] 

    Mason Verger : Hylochoerus Meinertzhageni. Ring any bells from high school biology, doctor? No? Well, I could list its most conspicuous features if that would help jog the memory.

    [wheels around the restrained Hannibal] 

    Mason Verger : Three pairs of incisors, one pair of elongated canines, three pairs of molars, four pairs of pre-molars, upper and lower, for a total of forty-four teeth.

    [stops to face Hannibal] 

    Mason Verger : The meal will begin with an hors d'oeuvre tartare: your feet. The main course - the rest of you - won't be served until seven hours later, but during that time, you'll be able to enjoy the effects of the consumed appetizer with a full-bodied saline drip. I guess you wish now you'd fed the rest of me to the dogs, hmm?

    Hannibal Lecter : [with a smug demeanor]  No, Mason. No, I much prefer you the way you are.

    Mason Verger : [holding back anger]  So... dinner at 8.
