Character’s Quotes

• I wasn’t speaking to you, Mr. Krendler. When I speak to you, you’ll know it because I’ll look at you.
• Well, at least thirty seconds of everyday. I can’t help it. He’s always with me, like a bad habit.
• Officer Bolton, I’m Special Agent Starling, and just 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, I know how she thinks. DEA and BATF, in addition to backing me up, are here for the drugs and weapons. You’re here – and it’s the only reason you’re here – because our mayor wants to appear tough on drugs, especially after his own cocaine conviction, and thinks he can accomplish that by the mere fact of having you tag along with us.
