The way I see it, David Lynch simply had the script written
phoenetically (sp?) backwards, and had the entire scene read that way. 
Then he plays the original backwards, and bingo, they're talking
forwards...the big problem being that when you read you inject certain
inflections that when run the wrong-way-round make it terribly tough to
figure out what the heck they're saying...hence teh subtitles.  (You can
tell the tape is run backwards if you look at Laura-look-alike's
hair...she "tosses" it backwards).
