James Hurley: Harry, Laura talks on her tape about a mystery man.
Sheriff Truman: The red Corvette. Leo Johnson.
James Hurley: I think it was somebody else. Not Jacques Renault either.
Sheriff Truman: Why do you say that?
James Hurley: I never put it together until I heard the tape. Where she says, "This guy can really light my fire." Well, I remember this one night when we first started seeing each other. She was still doing drugs then. Well, we were in the woods when she started saying this scary poem, over and over, about fire. And then she said, "Would you like to play with fire, little boy?", "Would you like to play with Bob?", "Would you like to play with Bob?"...

"Twin Peaks: Episode #2.3" (1990)
Dale Cooper: James, you're not gonna be charged with drug posession. The cocaine we found in your bike was planted. Probally by Leo Johnson.
James Hurley: I was trying to tell you that when you arrested me. But I still don't think Leo planted it or called you at the station that night. I think Mike and Bobby did. They're the ones you should be...
Dale Cooper: [cutting him off] James! I don't want to see you down here at the station again. Stop trying to figure it out all by yourself. Find someone to talk to. Talk to me. Now go on home, James. Leave the case to me.

"Twin Peaks: Episode #2.6" (1990)
James Hurley: I think I owe you an apology.
Madeleine Ferguson: Not really.
James Hurley: Well, when we were together, you know, just talking, I felt something. I just wasn't sure.
Madeleine Ferguson: You looked at me and you saw Laura.
James Hurley: I guess I did.
Madeleine Ferguson: Wanna know something kind of strange?
James Hurley: What?
Madeleine Ferguson: I liked it.
James Hurley: You did?
Madeleine Ferguson: When we were growing up, Laura and I were so close. It was scary. I could feel her thoughts, like our brains were connected or something. And when she died suddenly, I got the chance to be Laura. At least other people saw me that way. Like the way that you looked at me. I liked that too.
James Hurley: But it was wrong.
Madeleine Ferguson: It wasn't one thing or the other. For a while I got to be somebody different. But now I'm just me again.

Evelyn Marsh: [in a bar] Headed somewhere?
James Hurley: I'm sorry?
Evelyn Marsh: Is there some place you're going to, or running from?
James Hurley: [laughs] You got the wrong guy. I'm alright.
Evelyn Marsh: Men are always alright. Right up until they pull the trigger. And then we watch the neighbors solemnly march out to the news cameras to tell us: "He was such a nice, quiet guy."
James Hurley: [chuckles] Well, I'm only quiet on the outside.
Evelyn Marsh: I can almost hear what's inside from here... Live nearby?
