Twin Peaks is different. A long way from the world. You’ve noticed that. And that’s exactly the way we like it. But there’s a back end to that that’s kind of different too. Maybe that’s the price we pay for all the good things. There’s a sort of evil out there. Something very, very strange in these old woods. Call it what you want. A darkness, a presence. It takes many forms but… it’s been out there for as long as anyone can remember.

"I submit that the real reason we criticized and disliked Lynch’s Laura’s muddy bothness is that it required of us an empathetic confrontation with the exact same muddy bothness in ourselves and our intimates that makes the real world of moral selves so tense and uncomfortable, a bothness we go to the movies to get a couple hours’ fucking relief from."

It was a dream! We live inside a dream.

When Twin Peaks’ in-house photographer had quit and no further promotional shots were needed since the show was cancelled, Richard Beymer (Benjamin Horne) took his Olympus camera to the set and was given David Lynch’s thumbs up to document the last days of filming the show. (x)

What are you looking at? What are you waiting for? You make me sick. You damn hypocrites make me sick. Everybody knew she was in trouble. But we didn’t do a thing. Who killed the Prom Queen?! You did. We all did. And pretty words won’t bring her back. Keep your prayers. Laura doesn’t need them. She would’ve laughed at them anyway

"Anything else you remember about that scene with Sherilyn Fenn where she pops your coffee cup with the pencil?"

"I would say that I don’t know if she was acting because she always behaved the same way from the first time I set eyes on her. So either she was completely in character at all moments or that’s who she is. She was always like this kind of out-there, styrofoam-cup-defacing girl. (laughs"
