  Ummm... I wouldn't put it in quite that way. I view these scence as a break
from the heavy mood in the rest of the show. With Lucy and Andy it is almost
impossible to imagine anything ominous. While their problems may be serious
to them, they break the mood and give us a chance to rest. Much like the clown
scenes in Shakespere's plays. Although I wuldn't intimate that Lynch does
it QUITE as well.
