The City of Absurdity   TWIN PEAKS 1989-1991
"That gum you like is going to come back in style."

A policeman's dream.Laura Palmer.Sometimes my arms bend back.

"Just picture this kind of darkness and this wind going through these needles of the Douglas firs and you start getting a little bit of a mood coming along. And if you hear footsteps and you see a little in the window and you start moving toward it, little by little you're sucked in. And a mood, this fantastic mood and a sense of place comes along, and hopefully you like to go back and feel this each week."

  About the TV Show

David Lynch (Writer/Director/ "FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole")

"We were at Du Par's, the coffee shop at the corner of Laurel Canyon and Ventura and all of a sudden, Mark Frost and I had this image of a body wrapped in plastic washing up on the shore of a lake."

"I love the world of Twin Peaks. It has its own rules, and its mood, and its way of being...."

"Twin Peaks is about entering a world, falling in love with it, working within it, and letting it talk to you. To me, if it doesn't have honesty, and you don't obey those rules, then it won't work, it won't feel good, and the audience won't stay with it. That's also true of painting, or any movie."

Mark Frost (Co-Writer)

"We drew a map. We started with the image of a body washing up on lake. We knew the town had a lumber mill, at the specifics we weren't sure of."

Kyle MacLachlan (Special Agent Dale Cooper)

"I see my character as Jeffrey Beaumont (whom he played in Blue Velvet) grown up. Instead of being acted upon, he has command on the world."
