Was she a large girl? 2/ Yes. 1/ Big through the hips? Roomy? 2/ They all were. 1/ What else? 2/ She had an object deliberately inserted into her throat. Now, that hasn't been made public yet. We don't know what it means. 1/ Was it a butterfly? 2/ Yes, a moth, just like the one we found in Benjamin Raspail's head an hour ago..... Why does he place them there, doctor? 1/ The significance of the moth is change..... Caterpillar into chrysalis or pupa. From thence into beauty. Our Billy wants to change too. 2/ There's no correlation in the literature between trans-sexualism and violence.... Trans-sexuals are very passive. 1/ Clever girl. You're so close to the way you're gonna catch him. Do you realize that? 2/ No, tell me why. 1/ After your father's murder, you were orphaned. What happened next? ......I don't imagine the answer's on those second-rate shoes, Clarice. 2/ I went to live with my mother's cousin and her husband in Montana. They had a ranch. 1/ Was it a cattle ranch? 2/ Sheep and horses. 1/ How long did you live there? 2/ Two months. 1/ Why so briefly? 2/ I ran away. 1/ Why, Clarice? Did the rancher make you perform fellatio? Did he sodomize you? 2/ No! He was a very decent man... Quid pro quo, doctor. 1/ Billy is not a real trans-sexual, but he thinks he is. He tries to be. He's tried to be a lot of things, I expect. Clarice: And you said that I was very close to the way we would catch him. What did you mean, doctor? 2/ There are three major centers for trans-sexual surgery: Johns Hopkins, the University of Minnesota, and Columbus Medical Center.... I wouldn't be surprised if Billy had applied for sex re-assignment at one or all of them, and been rejected. 1 (full quote)

33944 1/_His real name is Benjamin Raspail.... A former patient of mine, whose romantic attachments ran to, shall we say, the exotic. I did not kill him, I assure you.... Merely tucked him away, very much as I found him.... After he'd missed three appointments. 2/_If you didn't kill him, then who did, sir? 1/_Who can say? best thing for him, really. His therapy was going nowhere. 2/_His dress, uh makeup, Raspail was a transvestite? 1/_In life, oh no.... Garden variety manic-depressive.... tedious, very tedious. No, no. Just think of him as a kind of experiment.... A fledgling killer's first effort at transformation (full quote)

33944 1/_Tell me what you see 2/_He's a white male. Serial killers tend to hunt within their own ethnic groups. He's not a drifter. He's got his own house somewhere, not an apartment...what he does with them takes privacy. He's in his thirties or forties. He's got real physical strength combined with an older man's self-control. He's cautious, precise, and he's never impulsive. He'll never stop. He's got a real taste for it now. He's getting better at his work. (full quote)
33944 1/_Oh Clarice, your problem is you need to get more fun out of life. (full quote)
33944 1/_I have no plans to call on you, Clarice. The world's more interesting with you in it. Say, you take care now to extend me the same courtesy. 2/_You know I can't make that promise (full quote)
