* ScriptWank: In an unusual moment for David Lynch, who is otherwise a master of ShrugOfGod, he explicitly spell out -- via subtitles -- that the garmonbozia the Black Lodge denizens feed on represents pain and sorrow.

Added DiffLines:

* AcousticLicense: Averted in the scene in the Bang Bang Bar, where everyone has to shout to be only barely heard - and are consequently subtitled [[RuleOfSymbolism just like the inhabitants of the Black Lodge]].

Added DiffLines:

* CrypticConversation: Almost inevitable whenever the Black Lodge is involved to some degree.
** Philip Jeffries has been in the Lodge, and he seems to be struggling to speak intelligibly.
** Philip Gerard's harangue at the street corner would sound like this even if Leland Palmer weren't gunning the motor. Sadly (or fortunately, depending on certain persons' point of view), the revving engine drowns out most of what he's trying to tell the Palmers, meaning Laura never gets to hear the one non-cryptic line in the whole tirade.
-->'''Gerard:''' ''(screaming to make himself heard, showing Laura his ring)'' [[spoiler: IT'S HIM! IT'S YOUR FATHER!]]

Added DiffLines:

* MadonnaWhoreComplex: Visually alluded to in the scene in the railroad car, when the camera cuts from the scantily clad and sexualized bodies of Laura and Ronette to an angel, modestly clad in white. Made more confusing by the fact the angel looks a lot like Laura...

* NoodleIncident: When we first meet him, Chet Desmond is arresting a bus driver and a pair of hookers next to an elementary school bus full of crying children parked on the side of a highway in Fargo, North Dakota. Why all this is happening is never made clear, [[RuleOfFunny and it probably never should be.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ShockingVoiceIdentityReveal: The Black Lodge denizens are revealed this way, in extreme, distorted closeup as the Man From Another Place introduces the group in their iconic backwards speech.


Added DiffLines:

* WhamLine: The film transitions hard from a comedic WhoDunnit to a surreal pychological thriller when these words are spoken ([[ShockingVoiceIdentityReveal backwards]]):
-->'''The Man From Another Place''': [[TheMirrorShowsYourTrueSelf The chrome reflects our image]].
* WhamShot:
** Special Agent Cooper declares that, though all the leads in the murder of Teresa Banks and the disappearance of Chester Desmond have cold and all the clues have hit dead ends, he's absolutely certain that the killer will strike again, though who knows where or when...
-->'''ONE YEAR LATER'''
-->"Welcome to Twin Peaks"
** Later, when Laura runs out of her house to escape BOB, she hides and waits for him to leave the house, only to scream in horror when [[InternalReveal her father walks out.]]

* FreudWasRight: Inverted in-universe, with a plot that deliberately contradicts some of Freud's theories. Just as Freud believed that events in dreams always stood for something else, he believed believed that women who claimed to [[spoiler: have been raped by their fathers]] were mentally processing some other trauma into this story and that it never really happened. In this film, the [[spoiler: incestuous rape]] is the AwfulTruth lurking underneath the more fantastical setup.

* SelfDeprecation: The scene with Lil the dancer and her bizarrely convoluted coded messages has been read as DavidLynch gently mocking his own incomprehensibility.
