FADE IN:

INT. LOG LADY’S CABIN – DAY

Seated at a dining table beside a tea set we see a woman, ‘LOG LADY’ MARGARET LANTERMEN. In her arms she carries a wooden log. She is speaking to us.

LOG LADY

Welcome to Twin Peaks. My name is Margaret Lantermen. I live in Twin Peaks. I am known as the log lady. There is a story behind that. There are many stories in Twin Peaks. Some of them are sad, some funny. Some are stories of madness, of violence. Some are ordinary. Yet they all have about them a sense of mystery. The mystery of life, sometimes the mystery of death. The mystery of the woods, the woods surrounding Twin Peaks. To introduce this story let me just say it encompasses the all. It is beyond the fire. Though few would know that meaning. It is a story of many but it begins with one and I knew her. The one leading to the many is Laura Palmer. Laura is the one.

CATHERINE MARTELL, a stout woman with curly red hair, is sipping coffee in the kitchen as her husband PETE MARTELL, wearing a hat and tugging fishing gear, walks in. PETE walks up to CATHERINE, kisses his palm and pats her on the cheek. She gives no response. In a dour voice he says …

PETE

Gone fishing.

He raps his knuckles on the counter and walks out the door.

In her room, JOSIE hears a door close and looks around still humming.

EXT. BLUE PINE LODGE – DAY

PETE, carrying a fishing pole and tackle box, is walking away from his house along a walkway near the lakeshore. There is a sound of a distant foghorn.

PETE

A lonesome foghorn blows.

He stops walking, turns to look out onto the lake and from a distance sees some plastic alongside a colossal cut tree log laying on the lakeside. He slowly walks over to the item and discovers that it is a human form wrapped in plastic.

SHERIFF HARRY S. TRUMAN is pouring himself a cup of coffee. LUCY MORAN, in her office, tells SHERIFF TRUMAN which phone to pick up and he stands bewildered in the process.

LUCY

Sheriff its Pete Martell up at the mill. I’m going to transfer it to the phone on the table by the red chair … the red chair against the wall … the … the little table with the lamp on it. The lamp that we moved from the corner. The black phone not the brown phone

The black phone rings and SHERIFF TRUMAN answers it.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

TRUMAN hangs up the phone and walks over to LUCY.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

You’d better get Dr. Hayward. Tell him to meet me up at the Packard Mill. The dock right below the dam and rouse that Andy out of bed and tell him to get his butt up there now.

LUCY

What is it?

SHERIFF TRUMAN

We got a body up there.

LUCY gives a shocked look; SHERIFF TRUMAN points at her and says…

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Lucy, not a word about this to anyone until you’ve heard from me.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

SHERIFF TRUMAN

ANDY takes a few snapshots and then begins to cry.

DR. HAYWARD

Oh Andy.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Come on Andy. The same thing as last year at Mr. Blodge’s barn.

DR. HAYWARD

Give me the camera Andy.

ANDY

(sobbing)Sorry.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

ANDY

(sobbing) I’m sorry, I’m so sorry.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

I want you to go up to the corner’s van and bring back that stretcher.

ANDY

(sobbing) Okay, sorry.

SHERIFF TRUMAN watches ANDY walk off.

DR. HAYWARD

Harry let’s roll her over.

SHERIFF TRUMAN and DR. HAYWARD roll the body over and crouch beside it. TRUMAN pauses and looks at DR. HAYWARD before uncovering the plastic. They slowly pull the layers of plastic away from the face of the body.

DR. HAYWARD

Good Lord. Laura.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

SARAH

Yes I am. (shouts) Laura!

SARAH walks over to the stairs and peers up. The ceiling fan is on.

SARAH

Laura. For goodness sakes.

SARAH goes up the stairs and checks LAURA’s bedroom.

No, Bobby hasn’t shown up for practice yet today. Come to think of it, as a matter of fact, he’s been late every day this week Mrs. Palmer. And last week and maybe even the week before…

MAX hangs up the phone and shrugs after being rudely cut off.

Beside a roaring fire, BENJAMIN HORNE, a tall man with curly black hair, is talking business with LELAND PALMER, LAURA’S father, who is seated on a couch in front of the fire.

BENJAMIN

Are they ready to sign?

LELAND

Are you not even going to mention that we have not as yet acquired access to the Packard land?

BENJAMIN hocks a loogey and spits it into the fire causing it to spark and crackle. LELAND turns away at the sight of this.

BENJAMIN

Sorry. (clears his throat) We have solid information. The Packard Saw Mill is going to go belly up within a year. We are going to able to get it for a song, one verse no chorus. Now let’s get out there and get those cheese eaters where they live.

LELAND

Uhhh, Benjamin.

CUT TO:

INT. GREAT NORTHERN HOTEL – DAY

BENJAMIN HORNE is animatedly speaking to Norwegian businessmen. Sitting beside him is a translator that is interpreting his selling speech.

BENJAMIN

Clean, wholesome environment much like your very own. (translator speaks) With a quality of life to rival the very best. (translations) That this country has to offer and that is what the Ghostwood Country Club and Estates will be. Now, when I first spoke to Sven he was naturally very concerned about the quality of air. If you permit me Sven (motioning to SVEN JORGENSON) to repeat what you told me after your run, ‘my air sacks (Ben breathes in deeply and pounds his chest on the exhale) have never felt so good.’

After the translation the crowd laughs.

JULIE, a hotel employee, approaches LELAND and whispers.

JULIE

Your wife’s on the phone again. She says its urgent.

In the background the translator is speaking to the crowd in Norwegian and again the crowd laughs.

LELAND

Excuse me a moment gentlemen. I’ll be right back.

BENJAMIN

(whispered to Leland) Make it snappy huh. (to the group) So, here in Twin Peaks health and industry go hand in hand. (translation)

CUT TO:

LELAND

No, why?

SHERIFF TRUMAN walks up to JULIE’S counter and asks her…

HEIDI enters the diner. Behind the counter, we see SHELLY JOHNSON, a thin and beautiful brunette. Next to her is NORMA JENNINGS, the owner of the diner. Sitting near SHELLY at the counter is BOBBY BRIGGS, wearing a black leather jacket.

SHELLY

What kept you Heidi? Seconds on knockwurst this morning?

HEIDI

(with a German accent) I … I couldn’t get my car started

SHELLY

To busy jump starting the old man, huh.

HEIDI produces a silly and odd giggle.

BOBBY

I thought you Germans were always on time.

HEIDI continues to giggle.

NORMA

I thought the only time you cared about Bobby was making time.

BOBBY

You heading out Shelly.

SHELLY

Yeah, I’m heading home.

BOBBY

I’m going to practice. I can drop you by your place on the way.

SHELLY looks at NORMA. NORMA is already looking at her, studying her expression.

SHELLY

That’d be great thanks.

BOBBY pays in loose change tossed on the counter. On the way out he approaches the jukebox.

BOBBY

Here’s a tune for you gals. (places a coin in the jukebox) Okay, Norma. (points to NORMA) I’ll see you in my dreams.

NORMA

Not if I see you first.

BOBBY

Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.

As he leaves out the door the jukebox plays a tune very loudly.

TUNE: I’m Hurt Bad

The tune on the jukebox can still be heard but not as loudly as BOBBY and SHELLY enter BOBBY’S car.

BOBBY

SHELLY moves the flask to BOBBY lips so that he can take a drink.

BOBBY

(laughs) Ha. Baby your more like a three stage rocket. A pocket rocket.

SHELLY

And what stage are we in now?

BOBBY

Are you sure that your old man is still on the road?

SHELLY

Yes, he called me last night from Butte. That’s a long ways away and he ain’t got a phone in his truck. So quit worrying and start scurrying mister touchdown.

TUNE ENDS: AUDREY’S DANCE

BOBBY’S eyes widen and he slams on the brakes as he sees LEO JOHNSON’S rig parked next to the house.

BOBBY

SHELLY

Backup.

BOBBY immediately backs up the car and again slams his brakes.

SHELLY

I’ll call you later.

SHELLY exits the car and BOBBY turns his car around and peels out as he drives off.

BOBBY

Hey snake.

MIKE

Hey man. Something’s up.

BOBBY

ALICE and the POLICE OFFICER huddle to a conversation. A second POLICE OFFICER #2 enters the room and talks to the POLICE OFFICER. A girl screams. We get a view outside through a window in the room and see that girl running as she screams.

POLICE OFFICER

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Yes. Did you understand your rights as they were explained to you?

BOBBY

Yes.

Uhh, it would have been about nine. Yes, nine … o’clock … pm. She came home from Bobby’s (becomes emotional) and she was going up the stairs. (more emotional) Those stairs, right there.

She looks at the stairs, then to the ceiling and hears footsteps; the ceiling fan is revolving.

About what time was that?

INT. PACKARD SAW MILL – DAY

Outside the office but still inside the mill building, JOSIE and CATHERINE are making their way to the office.

CATHERINE

Do you hear me! You can’t do that to my workers. Don’t walk away from me like that! Come on back here! Your not going anywhere and your not going to tell anybody anything.

JOSIE and CATHERINE enter the office. JOSIE turns around to face CATHERINE and says…

JOSIE

Catherine, I’m sorry if this offends you but I am the owner of this saw mill.

CATHERINE

And you don’t know the first thing about this mill. That’s why I’m running it.

JOSIE

I’ve never taken this authority before but maybe I should have.

CATHERINE

Your not shutting us down.

JOSIE

Catherine, I have the final say-so. Peter push the plug.

CATHERINE

Pete, don’t you dare.

PETE has been watching the confrontation between both women.

PETE

Oh, Catherine. Please (walks over to the phone, picks it up) Shorty, tell the boys to pull the plug. (response) That’s right.

A whistle sounds and machines start to power down. JOSIE moves over to the mill intercom microphone. CATHERINE leaves the office.

JOSIE

May I have your attention. This is Josie Packard.

CUT TO:

INT. PACKARD SAW MILL – DAY

Outside the office but still inside the mill building, CATHERINE is walking down the stairs from the office. JOSIE can be heard over the intercom.

JOSIE

I’ve decided today, in the light of what has happened, all work here will stop.

CATHERINE

Bitch.

JOSIE

This morning, as you know, the body of Miss Laura Palmer …

CATHERINE stops near the bottom of the stairs and looks at a nearby MILL WORKER, who is looking back at her.

CATHERINE

What’s your name?

JOSIE

(over the speakers) … was found …

MILL WORKER

Fred Korat.

JOSIE

CATHERINE

Your fired.

With the sound of the wind blowing, we see a young girl, RONETTE PULASKI, walking slowly along the train tracks of a bridge. She is wearing only slip that is dirty. Her makeup is smeared and there are tied loops of twine around each wrist that have been cut and are hanging free. Nearby, at the end of the bridge, an ENGINEER is arranging the track switch. Out of the corner of his eye he spots RONETTE.

ENGINEER

JAMES

Laura’s dead.

BIG ED

Yeah, I heard.

JAMES

She was the one.

BIG ED

Buy you a coffee?

JAMES

Can’t do it. If you see Donna could you give this to her?

JAMES hands BIG ED a folded piece of paper.

BIG ED

You bet.

NADINE

Ed!

JAMES starts up his motorcycle and drives off. NADINE HURLEY, BIG ED’S wife who has a patch over her left eye, is yelling to BIG ED from their home behind the gas station.

We view the interior of FBI SPECIAL AGENT DALE COOPER’S car as he is driving along the highway. He is alone in his car and is talking into a mini tape recorder that he is holding in his left hand.

COOPER

Diane, 11:30 am, February 24. Entering the town of Twin Peaks, five miles South of the Canadian border, twelve miles West of the state line. I’ve never seen so many trees in my life. As W. C. Fields would say I’d rather be here then in Philadelphia. Fifty-four degrees on a slightly overcast day. Weatherman said rain. If you get paid that kind of money for being wrong sixty percent of the time it beat working. My mileage is 79,345. Gauge is on reserve. Riding on fumes here. I’ve got to tank up when I get into town. Remind me to tell you how much that is. Lunch was … uhh … (retrieves a receipt from his pocket) six dollars and thirty-one cents at the … Lamplighter Inn, that’s on highway two near Lewis Fork. That was a tuna fish sandwich on whole wheat, slice of cherry pie and a cup of coffee. (emphasized) Damn good food. Diane, if you ever get up this way that cherry pie is worth a stop. Okay. (picks up card) Looks like I’ll be meeting up with a ahh … Sheriff Harry S. Truman. Shouldn’t be to hard to remember that. That will be at the Calhoun Memorial Hospital. I guess we’re going to go up to intensive care and take a look at that girl that crawled down the railroad tracks off the mountain. I’m pretty sure I’ll be checking into a hotel. I’m sure the sheriff will be able to recommend a clean place, reasonably priced. That’s what I need, clean place, reasonably priced.

SHERIFF TRUMAN and AGENT COOPER meet for the first time in a hallway of the hospital.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Agent Cooper?

COOPER

Yes.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Sheriff Harry S. Truman. (extends his hand for greeting)

COOPER

Dale Cooper, FBI (shakes hands). Pleasure.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Good to meet you.

COOPER clears his throat and they both proceed to walk up the hall.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Have any trouble finding the place?

COOPER

No, no trouble to find. I came out over Highway Two near Lewis Fork. I stopped at a little place called the Lamplighter Inn, had a slice of cherry pie, incredible.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Well I’ll tell ya’ we’re sure glad to have the FBI here. We’re kinda lucky in the way that Ronette step out across the state line. The whole town is very badly shaken up.

COOPER

Yeah, sure its a nice quiet place, something like this. (stops TRUMAN in the hall, now face to face) Sheriff let me just talk to you in the hallway here for just a second. There’s a few things we got to get straight right off the bat. Now I’ve learned about this the hard way, its best to talk about it up front. When the bureau gets called in, the bureau’s in charge. Now your going to be working for me. Sometimes local law enforcement has a problem with that. I hope you understand.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Like I said, we’re glad to have you here.

COOPER now moves a little closer to SHERIFF TRUMAN and sports a grin.

COOPER

Sheriff, what kind of fantastic trees have you got growing around here? Big, majestic.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Douglas firs.

COOPER

(repeated in amazement) Douglas firs. (changes expression) Can someone give me a copy of the coroner’s report on the dead girl.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Well the autopsy hasn’t been done yet. But I’ll take you down stairs to the morgue when we’re finished here.

COOPER

Fine.

SHERIFF TRUMAN and COOPER meet with DR. SHELVY at the open office station in the intensive care area of the hospital.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Dr. Shelvy, this is FBI Agent Cooper.

DR. SHELVY

Glad to know you. (shakes hands with COOPER)

COOPER

Doctor how’s the girl.

DR. SHELVY

She’s in shock, suffering from exposure.

COOPER

Could I see her?

DR. SHELVY

Alright, this way.

DR. SHELVY leads the way to RONETTE’S bed as COOPER and SHERIFF TRUMAN follow her.

CUT TO:

INT. CALHOUN MEMORIAL HOSPITAL – DAY

DR. SHELVY, COOPER and SHERIFF TRUMAN are beside RONETTE’S bed. RONETTE is lying on the hospital bed unconscious. She is hooked up to several machines that are beeping.

COOPER

Was she raped?

DR. SHELVY

Several times.

COOPER

One perpetrator?

DR. SHELVY

We’re waiting for the results.

COOPER

(turns around to SHERIFF TRUMAN) Any connection to the dead girl?

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Same high school. As far as we know they hardly knew each other. No connection.

COOPER

Hmm. I’d like to question her.

DR. SHELVY

This girl doesn’t even know where she is or if she is.

COOPER

What exactly are you saying?

DR. SHELVY

We need a CAT scan and we are not equipped for that here. My opinion, she may have neurological damage. She’s just not responsive at all.

COOPER

I’d like to examine her fingers?

DR. SHELVY looks at SHERIFF TRUMAN with a puzzled look. SHERIFF TRUMAN shrugs and gives a blank stare.

DR. SHELVY

All right.

COOPER moves over to RONETTE and grabs her left hand. With a small magnifying glass he looks at her fingernails.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

They’ve already scrapped for particles.

COOPER

Nah. That’s not what I’m looking for. (continues looking) No, no. There’s nothing here. Not a thing.

As COOPER puts her hand down RONETTE mumbles.

RONETTE

No. No. Don’t go there. Don’t … don’t go there.

DR. SHELVY

Ronie.

COOPER

Ronette.

RONETTE is again unconscious.

COOPER and SHERIFF TRUMAN are in an elevator, we watch a man with one arm walk inside. The doors close. On the next floor the doors open and the ONE-ARMED MAN steps out. In front of the open door stand two nurses behind a counter and DR. LAWRENCE JACOBY. DR. JACOBY is talking to the nurses.

DR. JACOBY

… there’s this fish and I pull him out of the water. Big mouth, got a big mouth and it starts talking to me. Wo… (notices COOPER and SHERIFF TRUMAN standing quietly in the elevator as the doors close) Hey, hey.

DR. JACOBY tries to get COOPER’S and SHERIFF TRUMAN’S attention but is cut off by the closing of the elevator doors.

CUT TO:

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Dr. Jacoby

DR. JACOBY

(slightly out of breath) Terrible, terrible tragedy.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Yes.

DR. JACOBY stands quietly with his hands in his pockets and with large ear plugs in his ears. He wants to be greeted with COOPER.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

This is special agent Dale Cooper.

DR. JACOBY pulls out one of his ear plugs. Having misheard TRUMAN, he asks…

DR. JACOBY

Uhm, Gary Cooper?

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Agent Cooper.

DR. JACOBY

Agent. (points at COOPER) F B I.

COOPER

Right.

DR. JACOBY

(slight laugh) Dr. Lawrence Jacoby agent Cooper. Laura was a patient of mine. Listen, your on your way to the morgue now. Do you mind if I join you?

COOPER

(scans DR. JACOBY from head to toe) Yes I do. Why would you want to?

SHERIFF TRUMAN

It’s sort of against procedure doctor.

DR. JACOBY

Well, no offense. I … I thought I could be of some help.

COOPER

You still could be, at another time.

DR. JACOBY

Oh. I … I understand completely, yeah. Oh. By the way, (slight laugh) Laura’s … uhh … Laura’s parents … (slight laugh) they didn’t know that she was seeing me. (little crazed laugh)

COOPER and SHERIFF TRUMAN look at each other and then walk off. COOPER turns his head to look at DR. JACOBY and then to SHERIFF TRUMAN as they walk down the hospital hallway.

COOPER

That guy is a psychiatrist?

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Yeah.

In the examining room with LAURA, COOPER is seated to the left side of LAURA and SHERIFF TRUMAN sits opposite of him. To the foot of the table, and in the background, is a DOCTOR’S ASSISTANT. The overhead fluorescent lights are flickering and are producing a buzzing sound.

DOCTOR’S ASSISTANT

I have to apologize again for the fluorescent lights. I … I think its a bad transformer.

COOPER

Its quite alright.

COOPER moves the table light to LAURA’S left hand that he is examining with his little magnifying glass.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Agent Cooper, we did scrape those nails when we brought her in.

COOPER

There it is, there it is. Oh my god, there it is.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

What?

COOPER

Would you leave us please?

DOCTOR’S ASSISTANT

(misheard) Jim.

COOPER

Ahh, would you leave us alone please?

DOCTOR’S ASSISTANT

Oh, certainly.

The DOCTOR’S ASSISTANT leaves and closes the door behind himself. COOPER grabs a tweezer from the doctor’s tool pan.

COOPER

Diane. I’m at the Twin Peaks county morgue with the body of the victim … (to TRUMAN) What’s her name?

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Laura Palmer.

COOPER

Laura Palmer. I got here before the autopsy. Diane, its the same thing. I told you I had a feeling we’d see this again.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

What have you got here?

COOPER

Ring finger, under the nail. Let’s see what he left us.

COOPER places the piece of paper on a small sheet of glass and flattens out the piece of paper. The small piece of paper has a single letter on it.

COOPER

Its an ‘R’. Diane, give this to Albert and his team don’t go to Sam. Albert seems to have a little more on the ball. (to SHERIFF TRUMAN) We need a bag and tag this.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Okay, Cooper. Are ya’ going to let me in on whatever the hell is going on here.

COOPER

(smiling) Sheriff, we’ve got a lot to talk about.

BIG ED gives DONNA a big hug.

BIG ED

BIG ED

No.

DONNA

Do you know where he went? I’ve already been up to the Roadhouse.

BIG ED

I don’t know honey. He told me to give you this.

BIG ED gives DONNA the note JAMES gave him. DONNA opens the note and it reads.

‘Meet Me At The Roadhouse After 9:30.’

A car, driven by MIKE NELSON, approaches the gas station and pulls in. He does not leave his vehicle or shut off the engine.

MIKE

(to DONNA) What the hell are you doing?

DONNA

Well … I …

MIKE

I’ve been looking all over for you. In case you didn’t realize, Bobby is in a lot of trouble. He’s my best friend and your supposed to be with me Donna and we’re going down to the police station to be with him.

DONNA

Look, don’t tell me where I ought to be! Second of all, Laura was my best friend.

MIKE

Get in the car.

BIG ED

Muffle it junior.

MIKE

Mind your own business.

BIG ED

MIKE

Oh Ed, I’m not your friend. (switches attention to DONNA) Donna get to the sheriffs right now.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

That’s the … uhh … video tape we just saw. The one we found from Laura’s bedroom.

COOPER

Right. At a certain point I’m going to want to show this to the boyfriend.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

You say when.

COOPER

(puts the videocassette down) Did you complete your forensics? (picks up the diary)

SHERIFF TRUMAN

You bet, all done.

COOPER

(examines the diary) No key yet huh?

SHERIFF TRUMAN

We’re still looking.

With his thumbs, COOPER forces the diary open. This breaks the locking mechanism and shoots the mechanical parts out which chime as they dance across the table. COOPER looks at SHERIFF TRUMAN.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

(smile) Why not.

COOPER

(turns on his mini recorder). Diane, I just opened Laura Palmer’s diary. This is the … uhh … last entry dated February 23. It reads, “asparagus for dinner again, I hate asparagus. Does this mean I’ll never grow up.” And then she’s written, “nervous about meeting ‘J’ tonight”. That’s the letter ‘J’, Diane. (flips through the pages) Yeah, that is the last entry. Well that’s something to get started on.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Yeah. That’s one out of twenty-six.

COOPER

Yeah, one out of twenty-six. (flips through the front pages of the diary) Diane, I just turned back eighteen days to day one. What we have taped to the page here is a plastic envelope containing a white residue and what looks to be a key to a safety deposit box. Sheriff, after you very carefully remove this key I’m going to run this envelope and my bet is it will test positive for cocaine.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

(surprised) That’s impossible.

COOPER

(looks at SHERIFF TRUMAN) You ever been surprised before?

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Mr. Cooper, you didn’t know Laura Palmer.

COOPER

Let’s get started on a court order to open that safety deposit box and maybe we’ll both find out a few things about Laura Palmer.

COOPER stares at SHERIFF TRUMAN as he puts down the diary. He grabs the next item on the table.

You two had a big fight last week didn’t you?

BOBBY

So what, if I had a fight with her, if I sang songs with her, if I went skipping rope with her! (wrestles slightly with GILMAN who is tugging at his arm for restraint) What difference does it make! I didn’t kill her!

COOPER turns his head and looks at SHERIFF TRUMAN with a grin. Then he turns to BOBBY, still wearing the grin.

COOPER

Bobby, here’s how this works. We ask the questions and you answer the questions that we ask. Briefly and to the point.

Again COOPER turns his head and looks at SHERIFF TRUMAN with the grin. COOPER grabs the remote control for the videocassette player and plays the tape from LAURA’S camera. BOBBY watches the video of LAURA and DONNA having a picnic in the mountains.

COOPER

Did you shoot this video Bobby?

BOBBY

No.

COOPER

Well, if you didn’t then who did? Did you know Laura was seeing someone else? That’s what you two fought about last week. Look at these pictures. Look how happy she is.

The video shows LAURA and DONNA prancing around together near a picnic spread.

COOPER

Ever do cocaine with Laura, Bobby?

BOBBY

(shifts his attention from the monitor to COOPER) I don’t do drugs.

GILMAN

Excuse me, but what are you charging my client with?

COOPER grabs an electronic notebook, a calculator-like device, on the table and starts typing in info with one hand.

COOPER nods at her to get to the point.

LUCY

Okay, okay. Well I pretended to be typing but I was typing what Mike and Bobby were saying and … well they didn’t say exactly who it was they were talking about … but anyway. Here’s what they were saying.

A mound of dirt approximately a foot and a half in diameter on top is a gold necklace with a gold heart. Correction, half a gold heart. At the base of the mound of dirt is a torn piece of newsprint written with the words, which appear to be in blood, fire walk with me.

NURSE

Mrs. Horne it might help if you talk to Johnny yourself.

SYLVIA

So, you think it might help. Well you can tell Johnny one more time that Laura isn’t coming this afternoon to work with him (pause as she looks at Johnny) and tomorrow afternoon or any afternoon. Now what is so difficult to understand about that! (slams a fist to the table)

There’s over ten thousand dollars here. That’s a lot of girl scout cookies.

Sporting a grin, COOPER looks at the magazine again and finds a dogeared page.

There’s a page that’s marked.

He opens the magazine to the marked page. At the bottom right corner of the page there is a photo of RONETTE posed in lingerie. The ad has been circled with a marker.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

It must have been a snowshoe rabbit.

COOPER

A snowshoe.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Right.

COOPER scans the room filling with people and spots an Asian woman walking forward.

COOPER

Who’s the babe.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

That is one of the most beautiful women in the state, Mrs. Packard.

COOPER

Packard Saw Mill?

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Yep.

COOPER

Where’s Mr. Packard?

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Died in a boating accident last year. Andrew Packard practically built this town. Brought her over from Hong Kong, six years ago, left her everything. Which didn’t exactly please his sister. That’s her right there.

TRUMAN gestures to the woman, CATHERINE MARTELL, who is sitting on the other side of her husband, PETE MARTELL, that MRS. JOSIE PACKARD is sitting next to.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

COOPER

Who’s the glad handy dandy?

COOPER gestures to a man that has come up to JOSIE and is holding her hand.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Benjamin Horne, local big wig, he owns half the town. He’s not after her, he’s after her land.

MAYOR DWAYNE MILFORD, an elderly man, is at the podium banging a gavel. The lights in the room flicker on and off as a woman holding a log is switching them on and off to get people’s attention.

COOPER

Who’s the lady with the log?

SHERIFF TRUMAN

We call her the log lady.

The lights continue to flicker on and off as people slowly start to quiet down.

MAYOR

Ladies and gentlemen. Can I have your attention? (he looks around) Is this thing on? (pats the microphone) Is this thing on!

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Hang on mayor.

SHERIFF TRUMAN moves to the podium and adjusts the microphone as the MAYOR sits down.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Thank you Mayor Milford. Agent Cooper.

SHERIFF TRUMAN gestures to AGENT COOPER to come to the microphone. COOPER clears his throat as he approaches the podium.

COOPER

Thank you sheriff. Ladies and gentlemen, Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Dale Cooper. One year ago almost to the day in a town in the Southwest corner of this state the body of a young girl named Teresa Banks was found. She had no family, no one came forward to claim her body. It wasn’t even news, until today. There are irrefutable similarities that for obvious reasons I can not discuss that lead us to conclude that Laura Palmer was the second and Ronette Pulaski would have been the third victim of the same killer. Now there is a chance that the person that committed these crimes is someone from this town, possibly even someone you know. You are the leaders of this community. It is vitally important that this not turn into a witch hunt. I would strongly suggest a temporary curfew for those under eighteen years of age. Keeping your kids off the streets now may teach them a degree of caution that may protect them in the days and the weeks to come. I will remind you that these crimes occurred at night.

DONNA returns to her room which she shares with her sister HARRIET HAYWARD. HARRIET is sitting up in bed with paper and pencil in hand.

It was kinda like a nightmare. Donna, she was a different person.

What are you saying?

I’m telling you there were things she was involved with, things she let herself get pulled into. Things she thought you hate her for. She said there were things about me … she said even Donna doesn’t know me.

I knew her, I knew her better then she thought I did.

Donna, she said something about a guy getting killed.

DONNA

Who?

JAMES

She didn’t say but she said … Bobby … told her that he killed this guy.

Oh my god.

This is why I had to see you. It all makes some kind of terrible sense that she died. That someone killed her, I don’t know I can’t explain it. I didn’t know whether to believe any of this last night. I mean half the time she wasn’t making any sense. I couldn’t calm her down. I could hardly keep her on the bike. We came to the light at Sparkwood and 21 and … she … she put her hands around my neck … and she screamed she loved me. I looked into her eyes, they were clear. Its like she was Laura again. She was so sad. She sounded so desperate. Then she ran off … (mumbles to a cry)

DONNA

(she hugs JAMES) Its okay, its not your fault James. (runs her fingers through his hair) Its okay. James, its alright. James.

James the necklace you gave Laura with the golden heart, you have to give me the other half.

Why?

DONNA

Because they found the half where she was killed and they think the killer will have the other half. If you go down there with the necklace and no alibi.

I’ll get rid of it.

No.

Alright. We’ll bury it.

SHERIFF TRUMAN turns on the police siren and pursues the motorcycle. JAMES pulls his motorcycle to the side of the road and stops.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

That’s not Joey its James Hurley.

TRUMAN grabs his microphone for the cruiser’s loudspeaker.

COOPER

I told you.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

(through the loudspeaker) James, stand away from the bike. Stand away from the girl, put your hands behind your head.

JAMES complies by getting off his bike and, facing them, puts his hands on his heads. DONNA moves towards the police cruiser.

DONNA

He didn’t do anything.

COOPER

She’s probably right.

SHERIFF TRUMAN, slightly annoyed, looks at COOPER and then exits his vehicle.

DONNA

James, he didn’t do anything.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Lucy, get an arrest form ready. Doc, I’m going to release her to you but I want her back up her for questioning first thing in the morning.

DR. HAYWARD

Alright Harry.

ANDY and HAWK place JAMES in his cell. As they walk away they both stare down BOBBY.

Good night officers.

BOBBY and MIKE grip the cell bars as they stare down JAMES who lays against the wall in his cell staring back at them.

INT. DR. HAYWARD’S VEHICLE – NIGHT

DONNA and DR. HAYWARD are sitting in his vehicle and are having a somber conversation.

DONNA

I’m sorry dad.

DR. HAYWARD

Donna, after what happened today. I’m sure you understand what you put your mother and me through tonight. But I also know you well enough to know you wouldn’t have done it unless you had a good reason. But we also have another problem facing us young lady.

DR. HAYWARD

Where’s your sister bicycle?

DONNA

(smile) Uhh, I left if at the Roadhouse.

DR. HAYWARD

Well, we’ll have to go get it. I understand you promised Harriet you’d put some air in the back tire.

DONNA

(smiles again) Yes I did.

DR. HAYWARD

We’re so thankful to have a daughter like you.

INT. TWIN PEAKS SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT – NIGHT

SHERIFF TRUMAN and COOPER enter the conference room holding cups of coffee and find the table laden with stacked donuts of all varieties.

COOPER

A policeman’s dream.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Yep. Lucy, sets it up for us every night.

LUCY

(over the intercom) Sheriff, is everything okay. There’s extra jelly donuts for Agent Cooper and there’s some extra decaf, (COOPER grabs a powdered donut) you know Andy’s been drinking so much caffinated coffee lately …

SHERIFF TRUMAN

Thank you Lucy. You can go back to work now and no listening.

COOPER breaks up his powdered donut, by hand, into little bite size pieces.

COOPER

Sheriff that reminds me. Can you recommend to me a good, inexpensive hotel or motel. Now it doesn’t have to be fancy and I mean that.

COOPER eats a piece of donut and immediately wipes his hands with a paper napkin.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

I can give you a good rate up at the Great Northern.

COOPER

Because you know I think I’m going to be here for some time and these motels, they’ll promise you a good rate and then when you get there its a whole different story. Now all I need is a bed, a bathroom, a telephone and sometimes a television in the unlikely event that one day I’ll get a chance to knock off early.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

I can get you a good rate up at the Great Northern.

COOPER

Sold. (extends his hand to shake goodbye) Well, tomorrow come early

As COOPER heads out of the room he pulls out his mini tape recorder and turns it on.

COOPER

Diane, its 12:28 am. Looks like I’ll be staying locally at a place called the Great Northern Hotel. The sheriff set the arrangements … (walks off)

SHERIFF TRUMAN remains seated at the conference table laden with donuts and smiles to himself as he hears COOPER walk off.

BOBBY and MIKE are still gripping the cell bars and staring down JAMES who lays against the wall in his cell staring back at them.

BOBBY

When you least expect it.

BOBBY and MIKE then start to loudly bark (sounds like ‘arf’) like dogs at JAMES. Before they stop barking, BOBBY lets off a howling shout that turns into an odd howling scream that slowly trails off in volume. JAMES continues to just stare back at them.

Hey Jo. (flirtingly) I understand you wanted to see the sheriff up here.
