Judge Clinton Sternwood: [meeting Cooper for the first time] Mr. Cooper, how do you find our little corner of this world?
Special Agent Dale Cooper: Heaven, sir.
Judge Clinton Sternwood: Well, this week, heaven includes arson, multiple homicides, and an attempt on the life of a federal agent.
Special Agent Dale Cooper: Heaven is a large and interesting place, sir.
Judge Clinton Sternwood: The law provides us structure to guide us through paralyzing and trying times. But it requires us a vision to its procedures and higher purposes. Before we assume our respective roles in this enduring drama just let me say that when these frail shadows we inhabit now have quit the stage we'll meet and raise a glass again together in Walhalla.
