Why haven’t I posted in a while? Simple, I’ve been doing important things, like watching Twin Peaks. Having just this moment watched the infamous final episode (How’s Annie?) I find myself somewhat speechless. I’ve spoken to several of you during this mini marathon and you’ve all, to my surprise, said, “Oh, Twin Peaks! I love it! I wish I was watching it with you!” So I put together this half-assed little walk down Twin Peaks memory lane just for you.
I’ll start you all off with the joke Coop told Annie: Two penguins were walking across an iceberg. One penguin turned to the second penguin and said, “You look like you’re wearing a tuxedo.” And the second penguin said, “Maybe I am.”
To remind us all why James and Donna suck so much:
James: When’d you start smokin’?
Donna: I smoke every once in a while. Helps relieve tension.
James: When’d you get so tense?
Donna: When I started smokin’.
Why we love Sheriff Truman and the Log Lady:
Log Lady: Shut your eyes and you’ll burst into flames.
Truman: Thanks, Margaret.
Other fun quotables:
Gordon Cole: “COOP, YOU REMIND ME TODAY OF A SMALL, MEXICAN CHIHUAHUA!”
Sarah Palmer: “I miss her so much. I miss her so much! I miss her so much!!!”
Pete: “There was a fish… in the percolator!”
Cooper: “Diane, I’m holding in my hand a small box of chocolate bunnies.”
Pete: “She’s dead… wrapped in plastic!”
Ben Horn: “Sometimes the urge to do bad is nearly overpowering.”
Denise (David Duchovny): “Pleasure to meet you sheriff. Mmm.”
Audrey: “Do your palms ever itch?”
Some Other Good Times:
-Sheriff Truman eats the whole donut in one bite.
-The first time we see David Duchovny’s character (and realize he is prettier than us).
-Agent Cooper’s glee over Douglas Firs, cherry pie and coffee.
-When Albert (snarky until this point) tells Harry that he loves him.
-When James finally leaves town!
-The first time Cooper meets Audrey (“…just as long as those grapefruit… are freshly squeezed.”)
And there ya’ have it. Makes you just want to run right out and watch the whole series again, doesn’t it? ]
