I would guess that Lynch and Frost intended to have the "bizarre, other-worldly
air" of Cooper and company contrast with the "everyday, regular-folks" veneer 
of the Twin Peaks natives, i.e. those who at first appear odd are actually the
representatives of the "normal world", while those who, on the surface, seem
unremarkable are in fact the ones with all sorts of secrets, problems, and just
general strangeness in their lives.
