In “The Silence of the Lamb” there is a female senator whose daughter is kidnapped and she goes to a serial killer named Hannibal “Cannonball” Lector for advice, and he just messes with her. The scene ends when he asks her if the girl was breastfed and then says “Hey, when your little girl’s on the slab, where will it tickle you?” And the Senator doesn’t even answer and just says something like “Get this thing out of here!”.
Here are some better responses she could have made:
2)I think you’re just asking that to get a rise out of me — it’s not going to work!
3)Don’t bullshit me, doc.
4)(SARCASTIC VOICE) Wow, I’m so upset.
5)I bet you’re asking that question to get your kicks and honestly I get that. You’re mentally ill and you’re frustrated at being cooped up in a mental hospital. Now can we please get down to business
6)Let’s cross that bridge when we come to it.
7)None of your b-i- business!
The key in all of these was not to let Dr. L know he got her goat.
