“I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.”
Dale Cooper

“Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.”
Dale Cooper

David Foster Wallace
“Part of the reason I actually preferred Twin Peaks's second season to its first was the fascinating spectacle of watching a narrative structure disintegrate and a narrative artist freeze up and try to shuck and jive when the plot reached a point where his own weaknesses as an artist were going to be exposed (just imagine the fear: this disintegration was happening on national TV).”
David Foster Wallace, A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again: Essays and Arguments

Neil Gaiman
“I toyed briefly with an image someone once mentioned to me, of a village in the shadow of a twin-peaked mountain. In the morning the sun rises. At lunch it sets behind the mountain. In the early afternoon it rises once more. The cocks crow for the second time, and later the sun sets again. No. One peak. Metaphors should not be belaboured.”
Neil Gaiman, Signal to Noise

“For instance, there is no light without darkness—and this troubles many of us—but without it, how else would we tell one from the other? We spend half of every day in darkness; surely we should make our peace with this.”
Mark Frost, Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier

Roberto Bolaño
“The card for the Santa Teresa cybercafe was a deepred, so red that it was hard to read what was printed on it. On the back, in a lighter red, was a map that showed exactly where the cafe was located. He asked the receptionist to translate the name of the place. The clerk laughed and said it was called Fire, Walk With Me.”
Roberto Bolaño, 2666

“The angels will return. And when you see the one that’s meant to help you, you will weep with joy.”

“To believe you know where you are headed is not to understand where one is at the moment.”

“If only I could understand
The reason for my crying
If only I could stop this fear
Of dreaming that I'm dying.”
Jennifer Lynch, The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer

“Why am I telling you this?" he went on. "A secret's only a secret as long as you keep it. Once you tell someone it loses all its power--for good or for ill--like that, it's just another piece of information. But a real mystery can't be solved, not completely. It's always just out of reach, like a light around the corner; you might catch a glimpse of what it reveals, feel its warmth, but you can't know the heart of it, not really. That's what gives it value: It can't be cracked, it's bigger than you and me, bigger than everything we know. Those tight-ass suits can keep their secrets, they don't add up to anything. This deep in the game, pal, I'll take mystery every time.”
Mark Frost, The Secret History of Twin Peaks

“The whole universe is one bright pearl, and there is no need to understand it.”

David Foster Wallace
“there's a part in the essay that kind of does this academic "Let's unpack the idea of Lynchian and what Lynchian means is something about the unbelievably grotesque existing in a kind of union with the unbelievably banal," and then it gives a series of scenarios about what -- what is and what isn't Lynchian. Jeffrey Dahmer was borderline Lynchian...what was Lynchian was having the actual food products next to the disembodied bits of the corpse. I guess the big one is, you know, a regular domestic murder is not Lynchian. But if the man -- if the police come to the scene and see the man standing over the body and the woman -- let's see, the woman's '50s bouffant is undisturbed and the man and the cops have this conversation about the fact that the man killed the woman because she persistently refused to buy, say, for instance, Jif peanut butter rather than Skippy, and how very, very important that is, and if the cops found themselves somehow agreeing that there were major differences between the brands and that a wife who didn't recognize those differences was deficient in her wifely duties, that would be Lynchian -- this weird confluence of very dark, surreal, violent stuff and absolute, almost Norman Rockwell, banal, American stuff, which is terrain he's been working for quite a while -- I mean, at least since -- at least since "Blue Velvet.”
David Foster Wallace

Jennifer  Lynch

“The only way love ever affected death was in making it more painful.”
Scott Frost, The Autobiography of F.B.I. Special Agent Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes

Jennifer  Lynch
“Accept that you are bad and dirty and cheap and should be thrown to the wolves as scrap meat, and must never bear children, for who knows the faces they would be locked behind from birth until death.”
Jennifer Lynch, The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer

Scott Frost
“I do not believe in goodness in the world anymore. What is good either dies or is killed.”
Scott Frost, The Autobiography of F.B.I. Special Agent Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes

Scott Frost
“My experience of the past several years does not lend itself to the belief that good can or will defeat evil. This is not a pessimistic view, but simply an observation of facts as I have experienced them.”
Scott Frost, The Autobiography of F.B.I. Special Agent Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes

Jennifer  Lynch
“Everyone still sees the smiling Laura Palmer. The girl with perfect grades and perfect hair and perfect little fingers that want to sometimes, late at night, go into the mirror to strangle the daydreaming troublemaker I see in the reflection!”
Jennifer Lynch, The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer

“Everyone assumed that Norma and Ed would marry first, but Big Ed — displaying a tendency to hesitate at crucial personal moments that never showed up on the football field — neglected to pop the question before embarking for Fort Dix. Norma hadn’t yet released that reticence was as much a piece of Big Ed as his inability to articulate his reasons for it. Sweet natured Norma, who had stuttered as a child and suffered from low self esteem, simply assumed she wasn’t good enough.”
Mark Frost, The Secret History of Twin Peaks

Lawrence Jacoby
“Why is that any less plausible or relevant than the safe, sanitized, pre-packaged bullshit of an armchair diagnosis made solely from the neck-up? What is that but a shield hoisted to protect us from the unholy terror of glimpsing ourselves as we truly are: creatures of unknown origin, trapped in time, pinned to a hostile rock whirling through indifferent and infinite space, clueless, inherently violent and condemned to death?”
Dr. Lawrence Jacoby

“Pardon my French for a second, Chief, but what the fuck?”
Mark Frost, Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier

Scott Frost
“(...) if a person, as one theory goes, is chosen to live in a particular time for one specific reason, then why am I here now? What moment in history is my life destined to intersect with? Or has it already happened, and I just didn't understand that that was my moment?”
Scott Frost, The Autobiography of F.B.I. Special Agent Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes
