Quotes

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 people try to be good but they're really sick and rotten, 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. Took her deeper and deeper into the blackest nightmare. Every time it got harder to go back up to the light.

"How is laura? How is Laura?" Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah.... (DVD)
7 November 2007 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

I choose this specific episode to review Season 1 of Twin Peaks, because it illustrates brilliantly the "twin peaks" of this show:

First, the character of Dale Cooper (and surely, the actor behind, Kyle MacLachlan): As few movies (Spiderman), Twin Peaks makes me feel good, with clear mind, happiness, and joy for life. Being open to Zen spirit (Phil Jackson, Pirsig,...), it's great find to see its teachings practiced in full flesh: Words can be helpful but human is the ultimate experience.

With Dale Cooper, I have a unique character in television: he shows openness towards everyone, enthusiasm for nature, honesty and courage with himself as he feels pain or fear but without being incapacitated. A good example to follow.

Second, the creative writing: The authors had an original vision but haven't really planned all the ramifications. So, they were scripting the details on the moment. And the more they write, the more they could tied themselves unless they could find deeper and deeper meaning to their inspiration. What's powerful in that show is that the two authors were opposite: Frost likes logic, words, whereas Lynch prefers feelings, moods.

So, this episode marks how a Lynch idea (the red room segment) evolves into a Frost one, where every clue of the dream gets his real counterpart: the red drape, always music in the air, ....
