Silence of the Lambs, the novel:

"Nothing happened to me, Officer Starling. I hap­pened. You can’t reduce me to a set of influences. You’ve given up good and evil for behaviorism, Officer Starling. You’ve got everybody in moral dignity pants—- nothing is ever anybody’s fault. Look at me, Officer Starling. Can you stand to say I’m evil? Am I evil, Officer Starling?”

"I think you’ve been destructive. For me it’s the same thing.”

"Evil’s just destructive? Then storms are evil, if it’s that simple. And we have fire, and then there’s hail. Underwriters lump it all under ‘Acts of God.’ “

My very favorite quotation from the book in this Hannibal episode! :)
