* OverlyLongGag: The Season 2 opening with the wounded Cooper trying in vain to get the hotel waiter to realize that he has been seriously injured and needs medical attention. Even when Cooper realizes that it is a fool's errand and decides to just go with the flow and humor the waiter, the scene ''just keeps on going'', eventually totalling a wooping five minutes.

Added DiffLines:

* InformedAttractiveness: Arguable as beauty is subjective, but Lana Budding Milford is considered absolutely irresistible to all men, leaving them open mouthed and occasionally forgetting their own significant others. In a world where Madchen Amick and Heather Graham are diner waitresses, this hysteria seems slightly misplaced.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Only the pilot episode was genuinely filmed on location in Washington State, with the two production seasons being made in Los Angeles.



* TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised: The movie ''Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me''. Subverted in that it was [[spoiler:actually a prequel]]. Well, [[TemporalParadox sort of...]]



* WantingIsBetterThanHaving: {{Lampshaded}} by Mädchen Amick when discussing fan reaction to the solving of the central mystery:
-->"As much as I heard, everywhere I went, 'Who killed Laura Palmer?', I don't think anybody was very happy to find out who it was. They liked to ''want'' to know, not necessarily to know."



* WeirdnessCensor: Many of the residents of Twin Peaks are unfazed by the strange goings on in their town. This is justified as most are simply to absorbed in their own matters to care. For example, Nadine excitedly mentions to a stranger that she finally figured out how to make quiet drap-runners by using cotton balls. During this explanation, she nonchalantly mentions she figured it out while waiting for her husband to be released from intensive care, not elaborating on how he got there. The others are members of the Bookhouse Boys and are already accustomed to the paranormal nature of the town. Subsequently they accept Agent Cooper's strange methods at face value, as his unorthodox tactics appear practical to them.
