We hiked and as we did we discussed our favorite books, slavery, third world countries, reincarnation and the type of dog we want to own when we get older. All I could think was: these types of conversations are important. These friendships are important. This is how you know who your real friends are.
I have a question. The whole "whenever feasible...eat the rude" quote... I know that it is in the book (Barney to Clarice, I believe) as well as in the movie but do you know if it was ever spoken or referred to in the NBC show Hannibal? I can't seem to find it but I feel like I heard it at one point.
It was used at the start of 2:12, in a conversation between Hannibal and Will:
Hannibal: Mason is discourteous and discourtesy is unspeakably ugly to me.
Will: Are you thinking about eating him?
Hannibal: Whenever feasible, one should always try to eat the rude.
Will: Free-range rude.
