    7.0
    There is always a tape somehow, I don't know why, but they always find one, and this is one with Earle explaining the lodge. Impractical, but kind of entertaining.



    The Bobby and Shelly scenes are always awkward, but again entertaining.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Log Lady intro:

      There are clues everywhere -- all around us. But the puzzle maker is clever. The clues, although surrounding us, are somehow mistaken for something else. And the something else -- the wrong interpretation of the clues--we call our world. Our world is a magical smoke screen. How should we interpret the happy song of the meadowlark, or the robust flavor of a wild strawberry?

    • Major Briggs: Taht mug uoy ekil si gniog ot emoc kcab ni elyts... Taht mug uoy ekil...

    • Windom Earle: For you see, the cave painting is not only an invitation... it's also a map! A map to the black lodge!

    • Pete: Audrey, there are many cures for a broken heart. But nothing quite like a trout's leap in the moonlight.

    • Doc Hayward: Dammit, Ben. It isn't that simple. I believe you. I applaud your desire to do the right thing. But goodness in you is like a timebomb. And there's nothing good about ruined lives.

    • Windom Earle: ... these evil sorcerers, dugpas, they call them, cultivate evil for the sake of evil and nothing else. They express themselves in darkness for darkness, without leavening motive. This ardent purity has allowed them to access a secret place of great power, where the cultivation of evil proceeds in exponential fashion. And with it, the furtherance of evil's resulting power. These are not fairy tales, or myths. This place of power is tangible, and as such, can be found, entered, and perhaps, utilized in some fashion. The dugpas have many names for it, but chief among them is the Black Lodge... But you don't believe me, do you? You think I'm mad. Overworked. Go away.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Annie: What we observe is not nature itself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.
      This is a modified quote from quantum physicist, Werner Heisenberg. The original quote was, "We have to remember that what we observe is not nature herself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning." It was originally from a series of lectures given at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland in the Winter of 1955-1956.
