Fun fact: Bob Belcher of Bob's Burgers and Hannibal Lecter of Hannibal have more in common than you might think. For one, they are both lovers of fine cuisine. Also, they're really accomplished chefs in their own ways, and, when you think about it, they've both been accused of using human meat in their food. The sole difference is, of course, that one of them actually has.
Anyway, the point we're trying to make here is: Bob's Burgers and Hannibal are extremely compatible. So, with that in mind, we've taken Hannibal screencaps and captioned them with quotes from Bob's Burgers. But, as you peruse them, ask yourself: does it really make that much of a difference either way?
(Spoiler alert: No. No it does not.)
The Will and Aunt Gayle comparison runs deep, but the defining similarity is their lonely, pathetic lives.
Beverly and Gene have the same nose for news.
Hannibal and Gene are willing to give "family" a hand, but don't expect them to withold their insults.
Bedelia and Linda are experts in two fields: wine and taking arrogant assholes down a few pegs.
Beverly, much like Linda, appreciates the sad sacks of this world.
And Hannibal is basically a sociopath, just like Louise.
Something tells us Zeller might be Gene Belcher all grown up.
Will's relatability doesn't end with Gayle. He can identify with the suffering of every character on Bob's Burgers ever.
Maybe Will and Freddie should consider a dance-off to settle their differences, because it seemed to work for Jimmy Jr. and Josh.
Alana and Tina both enjoy a party, the only difference is the ones Tina attends don't have human flesh on the menu.
Fair warning, Alana and Linda will not stand for back talk.
One of the few differences between Gayle and Will is their choice of furry companions.
We don't know who hates each other more: Will and Freddie, or Bob and Randy? What we do know is both Will and Bob suck at insults.
Fatherly advice comes so naturally to Hannibal and Bob.
That's it, that's the show.
