"Twin Peaks: Episode #2.6" (1990)
Josie Packard: I won't leave this office without my money!
Ben Horne: Why do I sense that this isn't a negotiable position?

Ben Horne: Josie, this key unlocks my personal hotel safe. Now, in that safe, I have put together a fascinating dossier on you, my dear, and your late husband Andrew's little boat that went boom. So, you behave yourself, lady, or believe me when I say that I will bury you.
Josie Packard: That's a shame. Because if anything unfortunate were to happen to me, it would lead authorities to a certain safety deposit box in a bank in another city, inside of which there is enough evidence to lock you away for three lifetimes. They'll bury us side by side.

Benjamin Horne: [drinks a toast with Josie] To the fire.

Special Agent Dale Cooper: Gentlemen, two days ago a young woman was found murdered by the same individual I believe responsible for the death of Laura Palmer. I have reason to believe that the killer is in this room. As a member of the Bureau, I spend most of my time seeking simple answers to difficult questions. In the pursuit of Laura's killer, I have employed Bureau guidelines, deductive technique, Tibetan method, instinct, and luck. But now I find myself in need of something new, which, for lack of a better word, we shall call... magic.

John Justice Wheeler: You're off to a pretty fair start.
Benjamin Horne: How do you do it, John? What's the secret? You really think that I could learn to be good?
John Justice Wheeler: I don't see why not. Just keep your eye on your heart, and always tell the truth.
