Full of classic moments
11 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Every time I re-watch this episode, I'm surprised by how many classic scenes are in it. The episode itself never leaves much of an impression of its own (likely because it is sandwiched between two Lynch episodes), yet it has some of my favourite scenes. It has the fish in the percolator, the first meeting of Cooper and Audrey, the Log Lady's first dialog, the first physical appearance of cherry pie, Cooper's first time saying "damn fine coffee," the first appearance of BOB, and more.

Yet despite all of these classic scenes, the episode is not one of the show's best or most memorable episodes. It is not the sum of its parts, but rather a collection of parts that work best as a part of the series rather than as a part of the episode.
