  • Quotes

    • Truman: There's a sort of evil out there. Something very, very strange in these old woods. Call it what you want. A darkness, a presence. It takes many forms but... its been out there for as long as anyone can remember and we've always been here to fight it.

    • Albert: Oh yeah, well I've had about enough of morons and half wits, dolts, dunces, dullards and dumbbells ... and you, you chowder-head yokel, you blithering hayseed. You've had enough of me?
      Truman: Yes I have. (Punches Albert in face)

    • Cooper: Nothing beats the taste sensation when maple syrup (claps his hands) collides with ham.

    • Log Lady intro:There is a sadness in this world, for we are ignorant of many things. Yes, we are ignorant of many beautiful things--things like the truth. So sadness, in our ignorance, is very real. The tears are real. What is this thing called a tear? There are even tiny ducts--tear ducts--to produce these tears should the sadness occur. Then the day when the sadness comes--then we ask: "Will this sadness which makes me cry--will this sadness that makes me cry my heart out--will it ever end?" The answer, of course, is yes. One day the sadness will end.

    • Albert:'s trying to think.

    • Johnny Horne: Amen! Amen! Amen!

  • Allusions

    • Les Miserables:
      Hank Jennings prisoner number is 24601, the same as Jean Valjean's in the classic novel Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.

    • Laura Palmer's identical cousin, Madeleine Ferguson, gets her name from two characters in the film Vertigo: Madeleine and Scott Ferguson. The idea of the identical "Laura" comes from the noir classic Laura.
