Well, even if it was a bit painful to watch, it WAS an uncomfortable moment
and Lynch seems to play with the audience's sensabilities.  For example,
the quick back-and-forth camera work in the "family counseling" scene was a
real change of pace compared to the rest of the episode.  It was fast and
seemed a lot more immediate or "action-ful" than a most of the other
scenes, which almost relate a laid-back attitude (like the music).

So, while it is painful for me to watch the scene, I think it _is_ Twin
Peaks-ish in that way.
