On Twin Peaks S1E3
Jerry Horne returns from Paris with brie sandwiches. He and Ben head to One-Eyed Jacks, a brothel/casino just across the Canadian border. James and Donna talk after dinner at the Haywards and decide that it’s OK that they’re falling in love. Cooper throws rocks at bottles because of a dream he had about Tibet. Mike and Bobby owe Leo money and he threatens them in the woods. Bobby promises to protect Shelly from Leo. Audrey dances in the RR. With the help of Pete, Josie finds that Catherine has been keeping two ledgers for the mill. Albert arrives in town, hitting it off immediately with Harry. After Ed accidentally tracks grease into the house, Nadine invents silent drape runners. Leland dances with Laura’s picture and breaks down crying, while Sarah does some screaming. Cooper has a dream about Mike and Bob, which ends up in the Red Room, where an aged Dale sees the Man from Another Place and a young woman who looks exactly like Laura Palmer. She whispers in his ear. He awakes to call Harry and tell him he knows who killed Laura, but it can wait until morning.
