To save on money, Lynch intended to cast a local girl from Seattle "just to play a dead girl".[4] The local girl ended up being Sheryl Lee. "But no one — not Mark, me, anyone — had any idea that she could act, or that she was going to be so powerful just being dead."[4]Indeed, the image of Lee wrapped in plastic became one of the show's most enduring and memorable images. And then, while Lynch shot the home movie that James takes of Donna and Laura, he realized that Lee had something special. "She did do another scene — the video with Donna on the picnic — and it was that scene that did it."[4] As a result, Sheryl Lee became a semi-regular addition to the cast, appearing in flashbacks as Laura, and becoming a recurring character — Maddy, Laura's cousin who also becomes another victim of BOB.

As with much of Lynch's other work (notably Blue Velvet), Twin Peaks explores the gulf between the veneer of small-town respectability and the seedier layers of life beneath it. Each character from the town leads a double life. The show further resembles Lynch's previous and subsequent work, in that it is difficult to place in a defined genre: stylistically, the program borrows the unsettling tone and supernatural premises of horror films, and simultaneously offers a bizarrely comical parody of American soap operas with a campy, melodramatic presentation of the morally-dubious activities of its characters. Finally, like the rest of Lynch's oeuvre, the show represents an earnest moral inquiry distinguished by both weird comedy and a deep vein of surrealism.

A popular feature of the series was Frost and Lynch's use of repeating and sometimes mysterious motifs — trees, water, coffee, donuts, owls, ducks, fire — and numerous embedded references to other films and TV shows, such as The Twilight Zone (mysteriously malfunctioning electrical equipment), and The Patty Duke Show (the phenomenon of identical cousins).

Invitation to Love is a fictional soap opera in Twin Peaks. It is seen briefly on TV screens in all but the first of seven episodes of the first season, and was shot in the Ennis House.

The show acts as a commentary on events unfolding in Twin Peaks itself, often highlighting some of the more outlandish or melodramatic elements of the show. The most obvious example of this "show-within-a-show" commentary can be found when Maddy Ferguson, the near-identical cousin of Laura Palmer, first arrives in Twin Peaks. Just before Maddy first appears on the show, an episode of Invitation to Love is shown in which it is revealed that there are identical twin characters in Invitation to Love who are played by the same actress, much as Maddy and Laura Palmer are almost identical, and are both played by Sheryl Lee. It is also implied in the brief snippet of the show that is shown that Jade and Emerald, the two characters in Invitation to Love, are characters with very different personalities, much as sweet and innocent Maddy is diametrically opposed to the dark and secretive Laura in Twin Peaks.
Another example can be found in the final episode of the first season, when Leo Johnson is shot in a dramatic fashion, and a similar event is shown happening to the character of Montana in Invitation to Love. Both shootings involve the character who has been shot lying down and slowly dying.
There is one final reference in one episode of the second season (audio only).
Invitation characters
•   Jared Lancaster, soap patriarch and owner of "The Towers". Aging father to Emerald and Jade. Played by "Evan St. Vincent" (Peter Michael Goetz).
•   Chet, geeky husband to Jade, and keeper of Jared's will. He is played by the fictional actor "Martin Hadley" (Lance Davis).
•   Montana, an aggressive, rapacious bully who schemes with Emerald to gain ownership of The Towers. He is played by "Jason Denbo" (Rick Giolito).
•   Emerald, seductive, manipulative twin sister to Jade. Schemes with Montana to end her father's life and collect the inheritance. Played by "Selina Swift" (Erika Anderson).
•   Jade, sweeter, more innocent twin to Emerald, who tries to save her father's life. Wife of Chet. Also played by "Selina Swift" (Erika Anderson).
Lynch later reused the motif of a show-within-a-show in his film Inland Empire which incorporated a secondary series, Rabbits. The more recent series, Ugly Betty also employed a similar recurring motif in its first season.

The pilot episode, first shown on TV in the US, was released on video in Europe in 1989. The European version is 20 minutes longer than the TV pilot, with a different ending added to bring closure to the story. Cooper, Truman, Hawk, and Andy find BOB, who admits to Laura's murder, and then is shot by MIKE, the one-armed man. The Red Room dream sequence that ends episode 2, where Cooper encounters the Man from Another Place and Laura Palmer, was originally shot for this film. Lynch was so happy with the material that he incorporated part of it into the second episode of the regular series (that is, the third episode shown in the U.S., including the pilot) as a dream Cooper has about the case. This version of the pilot was also offered by Warner Home Video in the United States, resulting in a rights-entanglement which prevented the broadcast version of the pilot being released for a number of years. On October 30, 2007, the broadcast version of the pilot finally received a legitimate U.S. release as part of the Twin Peaks "Definitive Gold Box Edition". This set includes both versions of the pilot.[14]

On December 18, 2001, the first season (episodes 1-7, minus the pilot) of Twin Peaks was released on DVD in Region 1 for the very first time by Republic Pictures, then a unit of Spelling Entertainment, (which had an output deal through Artisan Entertainment, now part of Lions Gate Entertainment). The box set was noted for being the first TV show to have its audio track redone in DTS. The region 1 release was heavily criticized for not including the key pilot episode, which could not be included due to the fact Lynch sold the rights to it to Warner Home Video in order to facilitate its video release in Europe. When the series was released on video in the US (twice by Spelling Entertainment's Worldvision Home Video), the pilot episode was excluded both times. In turn, Warner Home Video released the pilot on video — however, it was actually the European version, and was labelled as having "bonus footage". The televised pilot episode is included in the UK (region 2) DVD release from Universal Home Entertainment. A DVD collection of Season One was released in Australia by Paramount Pictures, in 2001. In 2006, Season 2 was released by the same distributor in two parts (Collections 1 and 2). In addition, the entire series was released in Australia in a box set collector's edition.

The first season DVD box set is known to have production errors, which cause many DVD players to freeze. One known track glitch occurs during the opening credits of episode 2. Another glitch occurs fifteen minutes into episode 4, during Donna and Audrey's scene in the girls' high school lavatory. The European DVD box set of season two has an audio flaw where in episode 12, the center and right channels have been flip-flopped.

The release of Season Two was complicated by the sale of Spelling Entertainment (which included both Republic Pictures, and the predecessor company, Worldvision Enterprises, the series' former distributor) to Paramount/Viacom in 1998; the transition of home video rights to Paramount/Viacom; and the later 2006 split of Viacom into two separate companies — this saw the rights go to CBS Corporation/CBS Studios. Also, Lynch oversaw the transfer from video to DVD personally, but was delayed by the production of his new film, Inland Empire.

The first season was released on DVD by Artisan Entertainment, the video licensee for Republic, but Artisan/Lions Gate's rights expired in September 2005, and thus were transferred to Paramount/Viacom. As a result of the 2006 corporate split of CBS and Viacom, CBS Studios (which ended up with Republic Pictures' and Spelling Entertainment's TV holdings) now owns the rights to the Twin Peaks series, with CBS Television Distribution handling syndication.

The second season release was postponed several times, from September 2004, to early 2005, and then to September 2005, to early 2006. Season Two was finally released in the United States and Canada on April 3, 2007 via Paramount Home Video/CBS DVD, which now acts as home video distributor.

In Germany, Season 2 was released in two parts on separate dates in April 2007. Part 1 went on general release on January 4, 2007, including the "broadcast" version of the pilot episode.

North American rights to the Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me film are owned by New Line Cinema, a division of Time Warner (which also owns Warner Bros.), and is available on video and DVD through New Line. In Canada, the DVD was distributed through Alliance Atlantis, which holds all Canadian rights to the New Line library.

At the 2007 San Diego Comic-Con, a Twin Peaks box set was confirmed for release. It includes both seasons, the two versions of the Pilot episode, deleted scenes for both seasons, and a feature-length retrospective documentary. It was released on October 30, 2007.[15]

Books of Twin Peaks

Twin Peaks has spawned several successful books due to its success. During the show's second season, Pocket Books released three official tie-in books, each authored by the show's creators (or their family) which offer a wealth of backstory.

The Autobiography of F.B.I. Special Agent Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes

(ISBN 978-0-330-27280-3), 1991: by Scott Frost (Mark Frost's brother). A collection of transcripts from Agent Dale Cooper's audio tapes, from his childhood to the day he is assigned to Laura Palmer's murder. The book includes Dale's upbringing in Philadelphia, family, education at Quaker institutions Germantown Friends School and Haverford College, first stumbles with love, obsession with the FBI, and the relationship between himself, Windom Earle, and Earle's wife. Many of these tape transcripts are dictated to "Diane," though a later tape states that Cooper enjoys the thought of Diane listening to his tapes so much that he will address all tapes to her, whether she will ever listen to them or not.

An audio tape version of the book, recorded by Kyle MacLachlan, was nominated for a Grammy Award for best spoken-word performance.

The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer

(ISBN 978-0-671-73590-6), 1990, written by Jennifer Lynch (David Lynch's daughter). Lynch paints a haunting portrait of an abused teen's double life, falling into a world of prostitution and drug abuse, while maintaining the status quo as homecoming queen and high school student. Published during the summer between the original broadcasts of the first and second seasons, the book provided fans with much-sought-after information regarding Laura's veiled personal life, including her knowledge of and/or relationship with the enigmatic character of "Killer Bob." With the exception of a discrepancy in the actual year of Laura's death (a discrepancy that is actually salient in the pilot episode vs. the rest of the series), Lynch's book is faithful to the Lynch/Frost collaboration as it existed at the time of its publication (while there is some accurate crossover, later episodes in Season Two would refer to diary entries that do not appear in Lynch's work).

Twin Peaks: An Access Guide to the Town

(ISBN 978-0-671-74399-4) 1991. This is the most lighthearted and humorous of the books. The book is a parody of a traveler's guide book, as published by the Twin Peaks Chamber of Commerce. Inside, fans can find anything from a history of the Native Americans around the area, to a list of songs on the jukebox in the Double-R Diner. A double-page ad in the middle portrays David Lynch and Mark Frost as brothers "Tim and Tom," who offer a "Taxi-Dermy" service: the blind Tim (Lynch) will drive you anywhere within the Twin Peaks city limits, while Tom (Frost) will stuff and mount any fish or game, up to and including the size of a bear. Pete Martell refers to the shop during the series while displaying a taxidermied fish.

Audio book spin-off

Early in season 2, Simon & Schuster Audio released Diane ... The Twin Peaks Tapes of Agent Cooper, a cassette-only release performed by Kyle MacLachlan. The tape consisted of newly-recorded Cooper messages to his never-seen assistant, Diane, mixed in with monologues from the original broadcasts. The tape begins with a prologue monologue in which Cooper discusses his pending trip to Twin Peaks, continues with the initial monologue heard in the pilot, and continues to a point after his recovery from being shot.

Annie Blackburn

Annie Blackburn, b. December 24, 1971 is a character in the Mark Frost and David Lynch television series, Twin Peaks. She is portrayed by Heather Graham. She is the sister of Norma Jennings, from whom she gets a job in the RR Diner.

She appears in the final 6 episodes of the series and briefly in the prequel feature film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me. She grew up in Twin Peaks, but, after a painful romantic experience that led to a suicide attempt, she went to live in a convent. She hasn't decided if she wants to remain in the secular world, but is willing to see what it can offer her. Despite her lack of experience outside the convent, Annie is not naive about everyday sorrows and transgressions. She can be seen as a mirror for FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper.

She seems to possess an intangible quality that he is drawn to, almost hypnotically. Annie ultimately begins to represent a dark and painful truth from his past. Subsequently, she is cast into Agent Cooper's urgent quest to elude/capture the progenitor of his increasingly nightmarish existence. In the final episode of the series she is trapped in the Black Lodge by Windom Earle who brings her there as his "Queen" after she wins Miss Twin Peaks (Earl was playing a "sick chess game" involving real people prior to this) At the end of the episode Dale Cooper is himself possessed by the spirit of Bob, and he and Annie depart the Black Lodge.

In Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, Annie appears to Laura Palmer in a dream bruised and bloodied to warn her of her death, but as the events are still to happen, Laura does not understand the message. Annie says, "My name is Annie, and I've been with Laura and Dale. The good Dale is in the Lodge, and he can't leave. Write it in your diary."

Josie Packard

Jocelyn "Josie" Packard is a fictional character on the 1990-1991 primetime ABC series Twin Peaks, played by Joan Chen. She is from Hong Kong, and is ethnic Chinese. In the opening credits, she is listed as Jocelyn Packard.

On a show with many mysterious and unpredictable characters, few were more mysterious than Josie Packard. Josie's is the first face we see in the first moments of the pilot. She is seated at a vanity applying her makeup. When Pete Martell bids his wife Catherine Martell goodbye for the morning and is rebuffed, Josie turns around silently, her face pale like a mask, lips red as blood. She observes the sad scene without comment, but with an expression as artfully sad as a painting. Throughout the first season, Josie seems innocent, an easy mark and potential victim for her more savvy and cunning sister in law, Catherine, and Catherine's lover, Ben Horne. It is only later that we learn that Josie is not at all what she seems.

A Chinese native, Josie met Andrew Packard, owner of the Packard Mill, in Hongkong and accompanied him to Twin Peaks as his wife. After Andrew's death in a boating accident, Josie inherited the mill, which however is run by Andrew's sister Catherine Martell. Catherine hates Josie with a passion, resenting the fact that Andrew's death left the mill in non-expert hands and suspecting that that Josie was responsible for Andrew's demise. Catherine's husband, Pete Martell, a former woodcutter, however is good friends with Josie, seeing her fragile side and striving to protect her the entire time he knew her.

After her husband's death, Josie started dating the town sherriff Harry S. Truman. FBI Agent Dale Cooper, in town investigating the murder of Laura Palmer, had befriended Sherriff Truman, and quickly detected Truman's feelings for Josie, but did not himself trust her at all. He tries to warn Truman against trusting Josie too much, but to no avail. At the end of the first season, a mysterious caller shoots Cooper. He survives, thanks to a quick operation, but does not get a look at his assailant, who is later revealed to have been Josie.

Though Josie's English was quite good (despite problems with idioms and turns of phrase), she was taking English lessons from Laura Palmer, right up until the day of Laura's death. (In the non-canonical Secret Diary of Laura Palmer, it is revealed that Laura and Josie were sexual partners as well.) It's implied that Josie's malapropisms and thick accent when speaking with Pete or Harry early in the series are a put-on; when Josie is revealed to be more than meets the eye, she is shown speaking to Ben with perfect English and no trace of an accent.

At first, we see Catherine and Ben Horne conspiring to steal ownership of the mill away from Josie. Later, it was revealed that Josie herself was in fact working with Ben Horne to cut Catharine out of the picture, and that Josie employed Hank Jennings to kill Andrew with Ben's knowledge and complicity. Still later, it was revealed that all the while she was taking orders from Andrew's former business partner and rival, Thomas Eckhardt (David Warner).

In the show's second season, Josie was horrified when both of the men in her life returned. Andrew had not been killed in the boat accident, and now he returned to live with Catherine. The two of them treated Josie as a maid. Eckhardt then arrived in Twin Peaks and ordered Josie to come see him.

On the last night of her life, we see her as we first met her, sitting at a vanity, applying her makeup, and tragically sad and afraid. She considered Eckhardt a dangerous man, and feeling she was going to her death, took a gun with her. Cooper, who had been monitoring Josie discreetly, learns from coat hair fibers found at the scene that it was she who had shot him. He went to the Great Northern to arrest her, followed by Truman. However, they are too late to prevent Josie from killing Eckhardt.

However, Josie suddenly collapsed dead, just moments later, in front of Cooper and a shattered Truman. At the moment of her death, Cooper saw a vision of Bob and the Man from another place. At the autopsy, her body had a dramatic loss in weight. Deputy Hawk speculated that her soul was no longer in the body.

Indeed, it appeared that Josie's soul was trapped within the wood of the hotel. She was mentioned once more when Pete said - at the hotel - "Josie, I see your face."

Due to the show's cancellation, Josie's fate was never resolved.


According to an interview with Joan Chen in the documentary Secrets from Another Place, included with the 2007 "Gold Box Edition" DVD release of Twin Peaks, the charactor of Josie was originally conceived as an Italian woman named Giovanna (a reproduction of a script page shown on screen during this segment of the documentary indicates "Josie" was intended to be a nickname for Giovanna), and that David Lynch's domestic partner at the time, Isabella Rossellini, was to have played her.

And they make us feel like we're older. Rick asks if we wanna go party and Laura says yes, and all of a sudden I feel this knot building up in my stomach. But when Laura gets in the truck with Rick, I go anyway. A stream in the woods and when I think, it's pale and light out. Laura starts to dance around the boys. She begins to move her hips. And we take off our clothes. I know the boys are watching. Laura starts to kiss Josh and Rick. I don't know what to do, so I swim away. I feel like I want to run, but I don't. He kisses my hand and then me. I can still feel that kiss. His lips are warm and sweet. My heart jumps. He's talking but I can't hear him. It was the first time I ever fell in love.

•   By Christmas, that was such a madhouse, there was absolutely no time for paperwork. I simply had to develop a system to remember customer orders using mnemonic triggers. For instance: someone looking for argyle socks, well, that would file under "A" for argyle, subheading "S" for socks. Now, it does get tricky. A request for a vulcanized Macintosh, for instance. Now does that file under "R" for raingear, or "W" for waterproof? My familiarity with the inventory finds me leaning towards an "R".
o   Dick Tremayne
•   What I am trying to make clear is that using a stuffed animal to represent an endangered species as an ecological protest constitutes the supreme incongruity.
o   Dick Tremayne
•   Do you think the furniture in this room is adequately arranged? I have been toying with the notion that if one could find the perfect arrangement of all objects in any particular space it could create a resonance, the benefits to the individual dwelling in that space could be extensive … far reaching.
o   Ben Horne
•   Shut your eyes and you'll burst into flames.
o   The Log Lady
•   See the mountains kiss high Heaven
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister-flower would be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea -
What is all this sweet work worth
If thou kiss not me?
o   Poem that Windom Earle sent to Audrey Horne, Donna Hayward and Shelly Johnson (from Love's Philosophy by Percy Bysshe Shelley)
[Cooper is ordering breakfast during his first morning at the Great Northern.]
Dale Cooper: Now, I'd like two eggs, over hard. I know, don't tell me; it's hard on the arteries, but old habits die hard — just about as hard as I want those eggs. Bacon, super-crispy. Almost burned. Cremated. That's great. And, I'll have the grapefruit juice, just as long as those grapefruits…
[He trails off as he sees high school vixen Audrey Horne saunter up to his table.]
Dale Cooper: … are freshly squeezed.
[Pete Martell pours coffee for Dale Cooper and Sheriff Truman.]
Pete Martell: Mr. Cooper, how do you take it?
Dale Cooper: Black as midnight on a moonless night.
Pete Martell: Pretty black.
[FBI pathologist Albert Rosenfield refuses to release Laura's body for the funeral.]
Dr. Hayward: You're the most cold-blooded man I've ever seen! I've never in my life met a man with so little regard for human frailty. Have you no compassion?!
Albert Rosenfield: Oh, I've got compassion running out of my nose, pal! I'm the Sultan of Sentiment! Dr. Hayward, I have travelled thousands of miles and apparently several centuries to this forgotten sinkhole in order to perform a series of tests. Now, I do not ask you to understand these tests. I'm not a cruel man. I just ask you to get the hell outta my way, so I that can finish my work! Is that clear?!
[Cooper has a chat with Albert after the latter was decked by an irate Sheriff Truman.]
Albert Rosenfield: The old rustic sucker-punch, huh? [calling after Truman] A hail of bullets would be nice!
Dale Cooper: That's enough! The sheriff didn't mean anything.
Albert Rosenfield: He hit me!
Dale Cooper: Well, I'm sure he meant to do that.
[Hotel-owner Ben and his brother Jerry discuss a group of Icelandic investors.]
Ben Horne: We've laid in a gala reception for your faired-haired boys tonight. All of Twin Peaks' best and brightest.
Jerry Horne: We're holding it in a phone booth?
[One-Eyed Jack's madam Blackie chats with Cooper and Big Ed, undercover as "Barney" and "Fred".]
Blackie: Fred, what's your line?
Big Ed Hurley: Own a gas station.
[Cooper gives Big Ed a look.]
Big Ed Hurley: Uh-um, I'm an oral surgeon.
Blackie: Well, I've got a Chevy parked out back with a serious root canal problem. Wanna take a look?
Big Ed Hurley: Well, I was hoping you might need a little gum work, 'cause I'd sure like to get a look under your hood.
Blackie: [to Cooper] Mmmm… Fred's okay.
[Sheriff Truman and Lucy visit Cooper in the hospital.]
Sheriff Truman: Lucy… you better bring Agent Cooper up to date.
Lucy Moran: Leo Johnson was shot, Jacques Renault was strangled, the mill burned, Shelly and Pete got smoke inhalation, Catherine and Josie are missing, Nadine is in a coma from taking sleeping pills.
Dale Cooper: How long have I been out?
[Albert is examining Cooper's injuries while he lists the problems of the Twin Peaks case.]
Albert Rosenfield: Meanwhile, one of your principal suspects is killed in his hospital bed, and the other is shot in his living room. You tell me: vigilante justice, or just clean country living?
Dale Cooper: Albert, where does this attitude of general unpleasantness come from?
Albert Rosenfield: I'll have to get back to you on that.
Dale Cooper: Well, if you don't want two black eyes on a regular basis, I suggest you make some kind of peace with the rural life.
Albert Rosenfield: Great. After the square dance, maybe we can all take a hayride.
[Deputy Andy, who recently had a board he stepped on hit him in the face, interrupts Cooper and Albert.]
Dale Cooper: Andy! How's the nose?
Deputy Andy: Not a mark on it! Only blood squirted out.
Albert Rosenfield: Where do they keep his water dish?
. . .
Dale Cooper: Good work, Andy.
Albert Rosenfield: Yeah. Woof.
Albert Rosenfield: I, uh, performed the autopsy on Jacques Renault. Stomach contents revealed… let's see, beer cans, a Maryland license plate, half a bicycle tire, a goat… and a small wooden puppet. Goes by the name of Pinocchio.
Dale Cooper: You're making a joke!
Albert Rosenfield: I like to think of myself as one of the happy generations.
. . .
Albert Rosenfield: Oh, the world's most decrepit room service waiter remembers nothing out of the ordinary about the night in question. No surprise there. Señor Droolcup has, shall we say, a mind that wanders.
Sheriff Truman: So, what did this giant sound like, huh? I mean, did he have a big, booming voice or what?
Dale Cooper: No, no! He spoke softly, distinctly.
Albert Rosenfield: And you gave him the beans you were supposed to use to buy a cow.
Dale Cooper: No, Albert! I gave him my ring.
Albert Rosenfield: Okay. Uh, confining my conclusions to the planet Earth…
[Albert gives his forensic conclusions on an unknown perpetrator.]
Albert Rosenfield: … and he worked with Leo Johnson, currently appearing at Calhoun Memorial Hospital as Mr. Potato Head.
Sheriff Truman: Anything we should be working on?
Albert Rosenfield: Yeah. You might practice walking without dragging your knuckles on the floor. Heh heh heh.
Donna Hayward: There's things you can't get in books.
Harold Smith: There are things you can't get anywhere… but we dream they can be found in other people.
[Cooper and Truman question the one-armed man, Mike.]
Dale Cooper: What does Bob want?
Mike, The One-Armed Man: He is Bob, eager for fun. He wears a smile. Everybody run!
[Dale Cooper reads Harold Smith's suicide note.]
Dale Cooper: "J'ai une âme solitaire." I am a lonely soul. Poor guy.
[One-armed man Mike noses around Ben Horne, who's being held for questioning.]
Jerry Horne: Sheriff… no offense, but, eh… clearly, this man's stairs do not reach the attic. Now, your 24 hours are up! You either charge my client or let him go!
Sheriff Truman: Ben Horne, I'm charging you with the murder of Laura Palmer.
Benjamin Horne: Yeah. Good move, Jer!
[Agent Dennis "Denise" Bryson, dressed in drag, confers with Cooper et al.]
"Denise" Bryson: understand we're both staying at the Great Northern. How's the food up there?
Dale Cooper: Denise, you're in for a real surprise.
Sheriff Truman: [to himself] So are they.
[Agent Bryson asks admiringly after the departing Audrey Horne.]
Dale Cooper: Denise, I would assume you're no longer interested in girls.
"Denise" Bryson: Coop, I may be wearing a dress, but I still pull my panties on one leg at a time, if you know what I mean.
Dale Cooper: Not really.
[Albert observes suspended agent-cum-deputy Cooper's plaid shirt and khaki slacks.]
Albert Rosenfield: Oh, Coop, uh, about the uniform…
Dale Cooper: Yes, Albert?
Albert Rosenfield: Replacing the quiet elegance of the dark suit and tie with the casual indifference of these muted earth tones is a form of fashion suicide, but, uh, call me crazy — on you it works.
[Pete, helping Cooper figure out how to outplay evil genius Windom Earle at chess, is interrupted by his "students".]
Lucy Moran: Mr. Martel, Andy moved his knight without doing the little hook thing.
Deputy Andy: You don't have to do the little hook thing; that's optional.
Pete Martell: Andy, uh… the knight has to do the "little hook thing".
Deputy Andy: Every time?
Pete Martell: It's a privilege! No one else gets to make that move.
[Near-deaf FBI boss Gordon Cole and Shelly are sharing a diner booth with Cooper and Annie. As Gordon and Shelly kiss, her boyfriend Bobby walks in.]
Bobby Briggs: Hey! What the hell's going on?
Gordon Cole: YOU ARE WITNESSING A FRONT THREE-QUARTER VIEW OF TWO ADULTS SHARING A TENDER MOMENT. [to Shelly] Acts like he's never seen a kiss before.
Dale Cooper: Uh, Gordon…
[Windom Earle has Major Briggs tied up to a giant dartboar.d]
Windom Earle: What is the capital of North Carolina?
Major Briggs: Raleigh.
Windom Earle: Fat load of good that'll do me.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me can be viewed as both prologue and epilogue to the cult television series Twin Peaks (1990–91), created by Lynch and Mark Frost. It tells of the investigation into the murder of Teresa Banks and the last seven days in the life of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee), a popular high school student in the small Washington town of Twin Peaks. These two connected murders were the central mysteries of the television series. Thus the film is often called a prequel, but it is not intended to be viewed before the series and also has sequel qualities. Most of the television cast returned for the film, with the notable exceptions of Lara Flynn Boyle who declined to return as Laura’s best friend Donna Hayward (she was replaced by Moira Kelly), and Sherilyn Fenn due to scheduling conflicts. Also, Kyle MacLachlan, who starred as Special Agent Dale Cooper in the TV series, was reluctant to return so his presence in the film is smaller than originally planned.

Fire Walk With Me was greeted at the Cannes Film Festival with booing from the audience and met with almost unanimously negative reviews. The film fared poorly in the United States, partially because it was released almost a year after the television series was canceled (due to a sharp ratings decline in the second season) and partially due to its incomprehensibility to the uninitiated. Many people, especially critics, found the film stylish but bewildering. The film also disappointed many devotees of the TV series due to its darker tone, lack of humor and absence of resolution to the series’ cliff-hanger ending.

Thus ye may find in thy mental and spiritual self, ye can make thyself just as happy or just as miserable as ye like. How miserable do ye want to be?......For you GROW to heaven, you don't GO to heaven. It is within thine own conscience that ye grow there.

Nice clips, I just finished watching all the DVDs!  They really brought back memories, the second season, too, has flashes of brilliance.  Are you going to get them?
