Yo! Dig what firstname.lastname@example.org (Avi Belinsky) sez:
[ still based on memories ]
-1) Audrey tells Agent Cooper " I understood her (laura) better than the
- rest. What does this mean?
It's possible that Laura confided to Audrey about a lot of her feelings;
if not in exact detail. They may not have been *friends*, but with the
relationship between Laura and Johnny, certain bonds could have developed.
-7) When Hank's parole officer is talking to Norma he says that he will
- be granted parol tomorrow "barring any unforseen circumstances".
- Are these circumstances going to happen or is it just part of the
- parole officer's high-falutin' language that had me cracking up.
I think it's a plot device to introduce conflict for Norma. After all,
what would happen if she *didn't* show up to the parole hearing? It would
keep the way clear(er) for her and Ed.
-10) The killer washed his hands. (from Albert's report) Who would do this?
- Was it Leland (blood on his hands in episode 3) Big Ed (greasy hands
- from working in a garage: doubtful, he's a book house boy) or just
- the killer trying to get the blood off his hands. I doubt this one
- too. They wouldn't have mentioned it if it wasn't significant.
Well, Albert would have mentioned everything, significant or not; it's in
his nature. However, the simple fact that after however long, there was
a residue of the soap would be significant enough to mention.
-11) The animal bites on Laura's neck and shoulders. What could this be
- from, and what the &^%&^ does it mean?
-12) Why the letter J in Laura's stomach? Was she eating the killer's
- name in Alpha-bits? :-)
Damned good questions.
-19) Dr. Jacoby: "I'm a terrible person" Why? Did he kill Laura? Did
- he allow the murder? Did he allow Laura to get into drug dealing?
- Is he referring to the fact that he just doesn't give a shit about
- the people in Twin Peaks?
That's it exactly. He's feeling guilty about pretending to care about
his patients, when he doesn't really care if they live or die.
-20) Dr. Jacoby: "I thought no one could reach me again." Who reached
- him the first time?
Probably an ex-wife or something. "... reach me again" is a bit more
dramatic than "... ever reach me".
-21) Truman to Josey Packer: "nothing will happen to you while I'm around"
- Is something going to happen when he isn't around? (like in Canada
- checking out the One Eyed Jack)
Typical macho saying. It establishes the gunslinger/backwoods mentality
of Truman, and shows that there's more than something casual (or physical)
between him and Josey.
"Now if you'll excuse me, I have a lot of cutting and pasting to do."
(more or less)
