This episode marks first appearance of Cynthia Nixon as Kade Prurnel. The character is a substitute for Paula Krendler, as the show couldn't obtain the rights from MGM, so the name was simply anagrammed.
Jonathan Tucker, who appears briefly in one scene with no lines was listed in the closing credits for the original broadcast version of the episode. For whatever reason, his name was removed for the DVD.
Investigator Prurnell: (to Bloom) A federal examiner is someone who arrives at a battlefield after the battle, and bayonets the wounded. You have wounded Agent Crawford. Who do you think is going to be getting the bayonet?
Hannibal: Friendship can sometimes involve a breach of individual separateness.
Will: You're not my friend. The, uh, light from friendship won't reach us for a million years. That's how far away from friendship we are.
Hannibal: I imagine it is easier to believe I'm responsible for those murders than it is to accept that you are.
Will: Sure is.
Will: What you did to me is in my head and I will find it. I'm going to remember, Dr Lecter. And when I do, there will be a reckoning.
Hannibal: I have huge faith in you, Will. I always have.
Katz: I'm not mad at you. Not anymore than I'm mad at myself. We all missed it, whatever it was... is.
Hannibal: We all are not suspects.
Katz: You're not a suspect. You're the new Will Graham.
Hannibal: It would seem Jack Crawford is less suspicious of me than you are.
Du Maurier: Jack Crawford doesn't know what you're capable of.
Hannibal: (leaves a moment of silence) Neither do you.
Hannibal: Will was never my patient.
Chilton: The irony is that he is my patient, but he refuses to speak to me. It makes me feel like I'm fumbling with his head, like a freshman pulling at a panty girdle.
Bloom: Declaring Hannibal's guilt is more important to Will than establishing his own defence.
Jack: Hannibal's not guilty.
Bloom: Neither is Will. But he's clinging to the hope Hannibal did this so he doesn't have to face what he did.
Jack: Convince me he didn't know what he was doing. I would really like to be convinced, Alanna.
Bloom: A psychopath wouldn't be so scared of the truth, Jack. Will's terrified, but that's not stopping him from trying to find it.
Jack: (to Will's dog) Somebody's got to find the truth, eh, Winston?
Bloom: If he doesn't remember what he did, he'll never accept the truth.
Will: What are you doing here?
Jack: I needed to remind myself of who you once were. You know, that man whose classroom I walked into months ago.
Will: I remember that man. Memories are all I have.
In the episode Dr. Chilton tells Hannibal that Will "Makes me feel like I'm fumbling at his head, like a freshman with a panty girdle."
In the movie, 'Red Dragon'(2002), Hannibal has a similar quote. This time to Will, "Ah, yes, Dr. Chilton. Gruesome isn't he? Fumbles at your head like a freshman pulling at a panty girdle."
In the episode while Agent Crawford visits Will, Will tells him "Memories are all I have."
In the movie, "Silence of the Lambs"(1991), Hannibal tells Clarice Memory, agent Starling, is what I have instead of a view. Both characters were incarcerated at the time.
