* I love Dale Cooper and his nutty approach to investigating the murder - throwing rocks at things and using dreams. It wasn't until I read the first comment on [[http://www.ferretbrain.com/articles/article-167 this blog post]] that I realized why he does what he does. Basically, it's all a parody of SherlockHolmes and his rational, logical ilk. They claim to use science and rationality, but everything they do is based on insight and illogical leaps that happen to be true. Cooper uses the least rational investigating techniques on Earth, and he's equally as correct. It puts a new spin on his character - maybe he's actually GenreSavvy, and knows no matter what he does everything he does will lead him closer to the killer - {{Tropers/randomfanboy}}
** Cooper's techniques also ''[[SubvertedTrope don't work]]''. He's no closer to finding out who Sarah Palmer's killer is after the majority of the series than when he started. Cooper is a BunnyEarsLawyer of the highest order but his biggest successes in the series come from his actual detective work. One might argue he does throwing rocks and investigating dreams because, [[{{Pun}} well, he hasn't got a clue.]]
* Take a good, long look at the opening title screen. The outline of the misty mountain behind the Twin Peaks sign forms what looks like a woman's face, looking up. The shot is framed, from the beginning of the show, [[spoiler:to ''represent Laura looking out from inside the black lodge.'']]
* Gordon Cole yelling at Windom's bonsai tree might me another quirk of his, but he yells because of his deafness. But then [[Tropers/{{Notahandle}} I]] remembered that Cole's hearing aid may had picked up on the bonsai tree's bug, so in essence, he was yelling at the tree on purpose.
* Cooper's habit of giving people a thumbs-up to indicate his assent might initially seem like just another of his endearing quirks, but given that his boss is extremely hard of hearing, it makes sense that he would get into the habit of communicating non-verbally whenever possible.
* The very fact that Laura's line to Cooper in the Season 2 finale about when she'll see him again corresponds ''exactly'' to the length of the gap between that episode...and the upcoming Season 3. Seriously, it's almost as if the "premature" cancellation was Lynch's plan all along...and now he's paying it off! Well played, Mr. Lynch...well played.
* May cross with WMG but, "one and the same" doesn't mean the giant and the midget, is about the realm of Twin Peaks and the lodges. [[spoiler:BOB got inside Leland Palmer in a literal and spiritual way]] and much like victims of sexual abuse can become abusers themselves as is implied that [[spoiler:the spirit of BOB in Leland is what drove him to rape Laura]] and that [[spoiler:Laura being possessed by BOB in both senses mirrors her loss of innocence]]. What happens in one peak occurs in the other.
** It helps that [[TheSkeptic Albert]] describes BOB as the evil that men do.
** Think about the last episode, [[spoiler:Earle kidnaps Annie and Cooper goes to the rescue but Cooper has to enter the Black Lodge to face his fears that are as he mentioned in past episodes his faults as an agent which are shown in full detail, what follows is Windom Earle getting his head "fired up" by BOB and it finishes with Cooper coming back only with Annie consumed by BOB aka, the evil of men]]. What if something arguably more mundane happened that day?

* In the bar scene in the movie, a man is seen putting something put a bottle of beer and giving it to Donna, suggesting he roofied her.
* The [[GainaxEnding ending scene]] of the [[CliffHanger second season finale]] in its '''entirety'''. [[spoiler:The real, good Coop is trapped in the Black Lodge while [[GrandTheftMe his body has been hijacked by BOB]], whom need we remind you, is a demonic rapist serial killer that forced his last host to torment and murder his own daughter!]] Until the new season comes out, we have no clue what horrors went down during those 25 years. To make matters worse, time flows differently in the Black Lodge than in reality; [[spoiler:[[AndIMustScream it's unknown what 25 years in that place could feel like to Cooper]] ]] and [[spoiler:[[NotHimself what it could do to him psychologically]] ]].
