"Twin Peaks: Episode #1.6" (1990)
Dr. Lawrence Jacoby: Bobby, were you very sad when Laura died?
Bobby Briggs: Laura wanted to die.
Dr. Lawrence Jacoby: How do you know that?
Bobby Briggs: Because she told me.
Dr. Lawrence Jacoby: What else did she tell you? Did she tell you that there was no goodness in the world?
Bobby Briggs: She said that people tried to be good. But they were really sick and rotten on the inside, her most of all. And every time she tried to make the world a better place, something terrible came up inside her and pulled her back down into hell, and took her deeper and deeper into the blackest nightmare. Each time it got harder to go back up to the light.
Dr. Lawrence Jacoby: Did you sometimes get the feeling that Laura was harboring some awful and terrible secret?
Bobby Briggs: Yeah.
Dr. Lawrence Jacoby: A secret bad enough that she wanted to die because of it? Bad enough that it drove her to consciously find peoples weaknesses and prey on them, tempt them, break them down? Make them do terrible, degrading things? Laura wanted to corrupt people because that's how she felt about herself. Is that what happened to you? Is that what Laura did to you?
Bobby Briggs: [on the verge of tears] She wanted so much. She made me sell drugs so she could have them.

Dr. Lawrence Jacoby: Let's cut the crap, Bobby. Okay, so your parents don't understand what you're going through. Nobody does.
Bobby Briggs: [scoffs] That's a good one. You make that one up all by yourself?
Dr. Lawrence Jacoby: Let's not talk about you or your parents anymore. Let's talk about Laura.
Bobby Briggs: [sarcastic] Okay, let's talk about Laura.
Dr. Lawrence Jacoby: Bobby, what happened the first time you and Laura made love?
Bobby Briggs: What kind of question is that?
Dr. Lawrence Jacoby: Bobby, did you cry?
Bobby Briggs: [caught off-guard] Did I WHAT?
Dr. Lawrence Jacoby: And what did Laura do? Did she laugh at you? Did she laugh at you a lot?
Bobby Briggs: [suttle tone] How do you know... did she tell you...? How...
