INT. LOG LADY’S CABIN - DAY

MUSIC: CALL OF THE BLACK LODGE 272K

As she speaks directly to us, the ‘LOG LADY’ MARGARET LANTERMEN holds her wooden
log in her arms like a baby. The LOG LADY sits with her back to the fireplace of
her cabin and beside a table.

LOG LADY

A drunken man walks in a way that is quite impossible for a sober man to
imitate, and vice versa. An evil man has a way, no matter how clever to the
trained eye, his way will show itself. Am I being too secretive? No. One can
never answer questions at the wrong moment. Life, like music, has a rhythm.
This particular song will end with three sharp notes, like deathly drumbeats.

INT. DR. JACOBY’S OFFICE - NIGHT

MUSIC: GENTLE WAVES

We FOCUS on a sandy beach with the a setting sun and hear the gentle WASH of
ocean waves. But the waves are not moving. We PAN RIGHT to see that we are
looking at a picture covering a wall. We continue to PAN RIGHT and move past the
wall to see DONNA HAYWARD and JAMES HURLEY enter the office.

DONNA

Where do we look?

JAMES

I don’t know. Everywhere.

DONNA

Where should we start?

MUSIC ENDS: LAURA PALMER’S THEME

JAMES moves to a desk, opens a drawer and pulls out a shoe box.

JAMES

Maybe this is something.

JAMES opens the box and finds it loaded with small paper umbrellas used to
garnish drinks.

JAMES

Umbrellas?

JAMES picks up one of the tiny umbrellas and looks at a tag that is attached to
it.

JAMES

The Kohalla Hilton, July 1969, men on the moon.

DONNA picks one up and reads its tag.

DONNA

August 9th, 1974. I first lay eyes on Mimsy.

JAMES

Weird.

DONNA

Yeah.

They both snicker. JAMES continues to search the desk. DONNA moves around the
room, spots a wall switch and moves to it. DONNA pushes the switch.

Hit it again.

DONNA pushes the button again.

JAMES finds a control box on the shelves near the stereo. He fiddles with
several slider controls until the music stops.

We FOCUS on LAURA/MADELEINE as she hears something and turns to look in the
direction from which she heard the sound from.

We FOCUS back on DR. JACOBY. With the sound of a BEATING drum representing a
hearbeat, DR. JACOBY’S heart begins to race. The unknown MAN continues to hit

INT. ONE-EYED JACKS - NIGHT

As the last scene, the TIGHT FOCUS on DR. JACOBY’S left eye, FADES OUT we FADE
IN to FOCUS on a top view of a spinning roulette wheel. A white marble is
dropped in and bounces around for a while until it stops in a marked crevice.

DEALER (OFF SCREEN)

BACK TO SCENE:

Beside the roulette table stands ‘BIG’ ED HURLEY dressed in his undercover garb
of a western outfit, wig and moustache. Standing next to him is one the
establishments 52‘ PICK-UPS, a hospitality girl.

52 PICK-UP #1

Sorry Mister, I guess our date’s off.

BIG ED shrugs and walks away from the roulette table. People can be heard
placing bets and laughing. BIG ED passes FBI SPECIAL AGENT DALE COOPER as he
walks through the casino. AGENT COOPER is seated at a Black Jack table. JACQUES
RENAULT is the dealer. We FOCUS on COOPER and JACQUES as BIG ED walks off.
JACQUES speaks with a slight French-Canadian accent.

JACQUES

Sir are you absolutely sure you want another card?

COOPER

Yes please.

JACQUES pulls another card from the deck and places it face up, the deuce of
hearts. COOPER flips over his one card laying face down to reveal that he has
...

COOPER

Twenty-one. Can you beat that?

JACQUES turns his one card laying face down to reveal a pair of kings for 20.
COOPER wins the hand.

COOPER

Mother always said I was born lucky.

JACQUES shuffles the deck as a 52’ PICK-UP #2, walks up to COOPER, cups her hand
around his ear and whispers something. COOPER reaches up and places a poker chip
in her hand.

COOPER

Maybe later. Thanks for asking.

She purses her lips and walks off. JACQUES grins and moves his eyebrows up and
down with a gesture to the woman.

COOPER

This is for you.

COOPER slides a poker chip on the table towards JACQUES. The poker chip is a
thousand dollar chip with a notch in it, the chip from his cabin. JACQUES looks
it over and his eyes brighten.

COOPER

I’m a friend of Leo’s.

JACQUES

Who’s Leo?

COOPER

Buy you a cocktail Jacques?

desk. One of the monitors is trained on COOPER at a Black Jack table.

Seated at her office desk, BLACKIE ‘THE BLACK ROSE’ O’REILLY is playing a hand
of solitaire.

BLACKIE’S office door opens and two of the establishment ‘52’ PICK-UPS’ enter
and take positions beside the door as they escort AUDREY HORNE inside.

BLACKIE

Come in.

AUDREY walks inside wearing white lingerie decorated with little red print bows,

equipment. BIG ED is seated beside him in the van. We can hear the conversation
between COOPER and JACQUES from the recording equipment.

COOPER (OFF SCREEN)

Jacques, how long have you been dealing Black Jack?

JACQUES (OFF SCREEN)

Long enough to spot a card counter.

COOPER (OFF SCREEN)

Do you always let card counters buy you a drink?

JACQUES (OFF SCREEN)

I don’t see tips like that every day.



CUT TO:

INT. ONE-EYED JACKS - NIGHT

Seated at a small table in a corner of the casino, we see AGENT COOPER talking
to JACQUES.

COOPER

Leo ever mention me to you?

Before he answers, JACQUES stares at a WAITRESS as she bends down towards them
and then walks away.

JACQUES

I don’t know Mister. Who are you?

COOPER

I can’t believe Leo never told you about me.

JACQUES

Or maybe he did. I don’t know.

COOPER

Leo played you like a violin. Had you and your brother taking all the risk
running the product across the border. Never cut you in on a piece of the
action.

JACQUES

I don’t know what you’re talking about.

COOPER

Take that chip out of your pocket and take a look at it. Go ahead. That chip
is a special significance. A very special night you spent up at your cabin.
Here’s a clue.

COOPER mimics WALDO the mynah bird.

COOPER

Laura, Laura.

JACQUES remembers and quickly tries to leaves his seat. Being calm, COOPER holds
JACQUES’S arm down to keep him from scampering away.

COOPER

Take it easy, take it easy. How do you think a low rent hump like Leo’s been
financing this little operation.

JACQUES

You?

COOPER

I’m the bank.

JACQUES

He never mentioned your name.

COOPER

Of course not. Leo makes the buy with my cash. You and your brother mule it
across theborder. Did he ever tell you who was distributing state-side?

JACQUES

Naw. Some high school kid. That’s all I know.

COOPER

That’s right. We’re in sync now Jacques can you feel it? Can you?

JACQUES grins.

JACQUES

Yeah, yeah. Sure.

COOPER

Good. Cause I got a job for you across the border tonight. No Leo. No middle
man.

COOPER reaches into his pocket and pulls out a fold of cash.

COOPER

Its ten grand. Half now, half on completion. How’s that sound?

JACQUES snatches the wad of cash from COOPER’S hand.

JACQUES

Sounds good. What are we doing?

COOPER

You meet me at the water processing plant on Black Lake in two hours. Is that
going to be a problem?

JACQUES

No, no problem.

COOPER

Good.

JACQUES downs the rest of his beer.

COOPER

One more question Jacques. You know, Leo told me all about that night up at
the cabin with the girls. I’m curious about the chip. How’d that happen?

MUSIC: LOVE THEME FROM TWIN PEAKS

JACQUES LAUGHS slightly.

JACQUES

It was that crazy bird.

COOPER

Bird?

JACQUES

It had a thing for Laura. Saying her name all the time like he’s in love or
something. So we’re all partying, girls are all getting pretty high,
everybody’s pretty crazy.

COOPER

You, Laura and Ronette.

JACQUES

Leo lets Waldo out of the cage and the bird, he lands on her shoulder.

JACQUES LAUGHS.

JACQUES

Laura, she’s all tied up. Oh, she liked that. The bird, he starts pecking on
her shoulder. Pecking like love pecks or something, ...

JACQUES LAUGHS again.

JACQUES

... you know what I mean. So Leo, he’s doing a number on her and Laura she’s
screaming about that damn bird.

CLOSE ON: JACQUES MOUTH

We FOCUS on a CLOSE-UP of JACQUES mouth as he speaks. The scene is SLOW-DOWNED.

DEPUTY #1

Cuff him!

DEPUTY FRED moves behind JACQUES to cuff him. SHERIFF TRUMAN puts his gun in its
holster.

SHERIFF TRUMAN

You’re under arrest ... for the attempted murder of Ronette Pulaski and the
murder of Laura Palmer.

SHERIFF TRUMAN turns away from JACQUES and heads toward his police cruiser.
DEPUTY FRED struggles with JACQUES to cuff his hands together.

FRED

Give me the other hand. Give me your other hand!

JACQUES throws his right elbow into FRED’s gut. JACQUES frees himself of FRED’s
grip and reaches for the gun on FRED’s belt as he bends forward in pain. JACQUES
grabs the gun, grips it with both hands and aims it toward SHERIFF TRUMAN.

FRED

We FOCUS on the reflection of a suitcase full of cash. A wrapped bundle of bills
is thrown into the case. We ZOOM out to see HANK JENNINGS close the suitcase. We
ZOOM out further to see JOSIE PACKARD leaning against the cabinet beside HANK.

HANK

Its all here. You’re very generous Josie. Sitting in that concrete box all
that time, ninety grand seemed like all the money in creation. Kept me going.
Its ... funniest thing, back in the world, I don’t know, ...

HANK lifts and bobs the suitcase up and down.

HANK

... it seems kinda’ light.

JOSIE

We had an agreement.

JOSIE walks away from HANK and over to the kitchen counter. JOSIE lights up a
cigarette. HANK follows JOSIE to the counter.

HANK

Oh I’ve been going over this in my mind and ... see if you can follow my
thinking. We’re all born into life and we have a certain number of years to
move and breathe and have our vein. That’s from a book on oriental philosophy
I read when I was in the joint. And maybe somebody, somewhere, knows how much
time we have. I don’t, do you?

JOSIE blows her cigarette smoke into HANK’S face. HANK belligerently breathes it
in deeply.

HANK

So, when a man gives up a certain portion of his life, eighteen months for
instance. How does he place a value on that time? Eighteen months, ninety
thousand, what’s that? Uh, five thousand a month. Well that’s not bad if
you’re going to live another forty or fifty years but what if you only got
another twenty or ten ... or some unforeseen event kills you tomorrow. As in
the case of the boating accident that killed your late husband Andrew.

JOSIE moves into the living room. HANK follows her. In the background, behind
HANK, is a deer head trophy. The horns of the trophy align with HANK’S head
making it appear that the horns are sprouting from his head.

HANK

Or say, you just got out of prison. Where you went in for vehicular
manslaughter as part of an agreement to avoid being implicated in the
commission of a much greater crime, murder. For which in fact you were
responsible. But now there’s this threat, this possible threat, that ... this
fact could be discovered ... and in one stroke, ten or fifteen or twenty more
years of your life could be cut right off from underneath you. So I’ve been
asking myself. What does that do to the market value of eighteen months?

JOSIE turns around to face HANK.

JOSIE

We had an agreement.

She walks back to the kitchen counter. Again, HANK follows her.

and I want a lot for my time. You know there’s a saying in the joint. Its not
oriental philosophy but it has a similar kind of logic that appeals to my uh

JOSIE tries to walk away from him but HANK grabs her arms and turns her around
to face him.

HANK

... spiritual nature.

HANK grabs JOSIE’S right hand and clasps her fingers with the fingers on his
right hand with their thumbs sticking up.

HANK

Once you’re in business with somebody you’re in business for life, like a
marriage.

Using his left hand, HANK pulls out a switch blade knife and clicks it open with
a push of a button. HANK moves the blade to JOSIE’S thumb and gently slashes it.
JOSIE writhes slightly in pain as blood oozes out of the cut. Next, HANK slashes
his own thumb. HANK then presses his bleeding thumb against JOSIE’S.

HANK

Partner.

HANK releases his grip, moves his cut thumb to his mouth and licks the blood off
with a smack. JOSIE trembles in fear. HANK walks off and leaves. JOSIE, still
trembling, moves her thumb to her mouth and wipes the blood on her red lips.

In the accounting office, CATHERINE MARTELL frantically throws and slams files
out of a filing cabinet. From the open door of the office, two MILL WORKERS
watch CATHERINE as she tosses the files around. PETE MARTELL walks up to the
open office door to see what the commotion is all about. PETE throws a
questioning glance to one of MILL WORKERS.

CATHERINE

Damn. Where? Where is it?

PETE steps into the office.

PETE

Catherine?

Holding files, CATHERINE turns to face PETE.

CATHERINE

The account ledger, have you seen it?

PETE closes the door behind himself.

PETE

Well don’t you keep it in that little safe at home?

CATHERINE

No, its not in the safe at home. Its not here. Its not anywhere. Tell me you
didn’t take it?

PETE shrugs.

PETE

I didn’t take it.

CATHERINE

Pete, tell me the truth. You’re not helping her to pull something here.

PETE notices that the two MILL WORKERS are still watching them. PETE moves to
close the horizontal blind to the window they are using to peer inside.

PETE

Who?

CATHERINE

Josie.

PETE

Oh no.

PETE moves to close another horizontal blind to a window that the two nosy MILL
WORKERS have moved to.

PETE

Pull what here?

CATHERINE

Oh Peter. Forget everything that we’ve ever said or done to hurt each other.

PETE

Just like that.

PETE closes another horizontal blind.

CATHERINE

Temporarily. I know our marriage is a living train wreck but there used to be
something caring between us. The fella who caught my eye. The lumber jack that
... could scamper up a tree like a ... cat.

PETE becomes tearyed eyed.

PETE

The boss’s sister from that big house on the hill.

CATHERINE

A summer’s indiscretion and here we are.

PETE

(slightly embarrassed) Catherine.

MUSIC: TWIN PEAKS THEME

CATHERINE

Oh Peter. I never should have taken you to that house on the hill.

PETE

Oh I have no complaints about the house.

CATHERINE

As for me taking my principle pleasure in lashing out at the one person who
was decent enough to stand by me through all my foolishness.

PETE

I know things haven’t been easy for ya’.

CATHERINE

Peter, somewhere under all that scar tissue there’s the faintest flicker of
what we used to feel for each other. I’m asking you to feel that now.

PETE

Why? Exactly.

CATHERINE

(emotional) Because I’m in trouble ... and given what I’ve become and the way
I’ve treated people there’s no one else I can turn to. I need your help.

PETE listens on with tears in his eyes. PETE rushes over to CATHERINE and gives
her a big hug.

PETE

Oh Catherine. Catherine.

CATHERINE rolls her eyes and gently pats his back.

Standing by the reception office, BIG ED retells the previous night’s events to
two DEPUTIES plus DEPUTY FRED, DEPUTY ANDY and DEPUTY HAWK.

BIG ED

So, Fred starts to put the cuffs on him right. Now Harry, he turns to go. Now
all of a sudden Jacques throws an elbow at Fred like this.

BIG ED visually shows the group the move JACQUES made.

BIG ED

Wham!

LUCY, with her back to group, is listening as she waters some plants in the
reception area.

HAWK

And in one move he takes Fred’s gun and he’s got the drop on Harry.

BIG ED

Harry is deader then a pound of road side stew.

HAWK

Then, all of a sudden, a single shot rings out.

ANDY puts his hands to together with his index fingers pointed out to resemble a
gun and reenacts his shooting of JACQUES. ANDY includes the sound effect of the
gun firing, ‘Paa-kehhh’. BIG ED, DEPUTY HAWK and the surrounding DEPUTIES clap
and cheer him on.

HAWK

All right! Andy the man.

LUCY turns to look at ANDY. Their eyes meet. LUCY smiles, shyly turns away and
quickly scampers into the coffee station.

BIG ED

Alright Andy.

HAWK pushes ANDY to talk to LUCY.

HAWK

Go ahead Andy. Give it your best shot. Go on.

ANDY tugs his belt up and walks to the coffee station. LUCY turns her head to
look at ANDY and quickly turns her head away. ANDY turns around and closes the
accordion doors of the coffee station for privacy. ANDY turns to LUCY, grabs her
by the arms and turns her around to face him. Slowly, they move to kiss. ANDY
and LUCY both puts their arms around each other as they longingly kiss each
other. Still holding each other, LUCY and ANDY separate from the kiss to look at
each other.

LUCY

Oh Andy.

ANDY

Oh Punky.

LUCY

I’m pregnant.

ANDY’S eyes widen. He remains silent. LUCY becomes irritated by his silence and
expression. ANDY opens the doors to the coffee station, slowly walks out and
moves down the hall. BIG ED and HAWK watch ANDY silently walk off.

HAWK

Uh-oh.

Carrying a watering pitcher, LUCY exits the coffee station and walks by HAWK and
BIG ED. Angry, LUCY stares at HAWK and BIG ED and barks.

LUCY

Fresh ... coffee.

LUCY walks to her office. BIG ED and HAWK shake their heads and walk away. We
PAN to see the other DEPUTIES also walk off. We ZOOM in on the reception window

DR. HAYWARD

He’s out of the woods. Listen he uh ... he says he got a phone call from Laura
Palmer. He was on his way to see her when he was jumped. That brought on the
heart attack.

Drying Shed #3, a tall warehouse building, is on fire. PETE and a COWORKER,
carrying a fire extinguisher, walk toward the burning building.

PETE

Any of the boys still inside?

COWORKER

Not sure. The shift was over but ... we’re still trying to get a count.

PETE

Seen Catherine?

COWORKER

No Pete.

PETE

That’s her car.

They pass her all-terrain vehicle.

COWORKER

Geez, god. You think she’s still inside?

PETE

Guess I’m gonna have to find out.

COWORKER

Pete I don’t think that’s such a good idea.

PETE puts a pair of safety goggles over his eyes.

MUSIC: LAURA PALMER’S THEME (DRAMATIC VERSION)

PETE

She’s still my wife.

The COWORKER hands PETE the fire extinguisher. PETE runs over to the building
and looks it over. PETE kicks the door in and runs inside.

PETE

Catherine!

signature.

BENJAMIN

And that is that.

MR. THORSON

Ben, is this a great moment?

BENJAMIN

Ghostwood.

MR. THORSON

Incredible. Ghostwood.

BEN stands up. BEN and MR. THORSON hug. Two 52’ PICK-UPS, walk up to MR. THORSON
and cradle his arms. BENJAMIN grabs a tray of poker chips and hands it to MR.
THORSON.

BENJAMIN

Einar, tonight you play on the house.

Wearing a smile, MR. THORSON checks out the WOMEN hanging on his arms.

MR. THORSON

This is ... marvelous huh

BEN places a cigar in EINAR’S coat pocket.

BENJAMIN

Enjoy my friend, enjoy.

The two 52’ PICK-UPS escort MR. THORSON out. In a salute, MR. THORSON holds up
the tray of poker chips.

MR. THORSON

Congratulations boss.

Blackie old pal, this calls for a celebration. Let’s have a look ... at the
new girl.



CUT TO:

INT. ONE-EYED JACKS - NIGHT

We FOCUS on a large card of the queen of diamonds. We ZOOM out to see an OLD
LADY, with a hunched back, sewing the card to the front of AUDREY’S lingerie.
There is a KNOCK at the door. The OLD LADY scampers away.

OLD LADY

Good luck honey.

The OLD LADY exits the room through a hidden door.

BENJAMIN

Close your eyes.

AUDREY’S POV:

Through AUDREY’S POV we FOCUS on the reflection from a mirror of BENJAMIN as he
enters the room and closes the door behind himself.


BACK TO SCENE:

AUDREY, still seated, is stunned.


AUDREY’S POV:

Through AUDREY’S POV we FOCUS on the reflection from a mirror of BENJAMIN near
the door to the room behind a deep reveal.

BENJAMIN

This is such stuff that dreams are made of.

Still viewing his reflection in the mirror, BEN slowly walks into the room.




DISSOLVE TO:

INT. GREAT NORTHERN HOTEL - NIGHT

As the last scene FADES OUT the next scene FADES IN. In a hallway of the hotel,
AGENT DALE COOPER walk up the hall toward his room. With his tie undone, AGENT
COOPER is carrying his tuxedo jacket in his left hand over his shoulder. In his
right hand COOPER carries his mini tape recorder which he is talking into.

COOPER

Diane, 4:37 am. After a long investigative night, returning to my room at the
Great Northern. We have one suspect in custody and Leo Johnson, the man I
believe was responsible for Laura’s death, won’t be able to escape the drag
net we’ve thrown up for him much longer.

AGENT COOPER pauses to listen and looks around.

COOPER

As you can hear from the ambient sound around me ... and I notice with some
relief, that the Icelandic group staying on my floor have either checked or
passed out. I may not need the Ear Pillow ear plugs. Which I did receive today
Diane. Although I suspect I may put them to use as a purely precautionary
measure. I ordered some hot milk from room service. Here’s hoping that does
the job and I’ll be able to catch a few hours of quality sack time.
Twenty-four hour room service must be one of the premiere achievements of
modern civilization.

COOPER turns off his mini tape recorder, unlocks the door to his room, opens it
and enters.




CUT TO:

INT. DALE COOPER’S HOTEL ROOM - NIGHT

Upon entering his hotel room COOPER spots a small envelope on the floor. COOPER
picks up the envelope. COOPER smiles as he reads aloud who the envelope is
addressed to.

COOPER

My special agent.

The telephone RINGS. COOPER walks across the room to answer it.

COOPER

Cooper here. (reply) Who is this? (reply) Could this wait till tomorrow
morning?

There is a KNOCK at the door.

COOPER

Please excuse me I got room service.

COOPER places the receiver beside the phone as he moves to answer the door. ANDY
can be heard from the phone.

ANDY (OFF SCREEN)

(static) We found him. (clear) Its Andy, Deputy Andy. Agent Cooper? We found
Leo Johnson. He’s been shot. Agent Cooper?

COOPER opens the door.


COOPER’S POV:

Through COOPER’S POV the first thing he sees is a gun that DISCHARGES before he
can do anything.


BACK TO SCENE:

The gun is FIRED again and we see that the two shots have hit AGENT COOPER in
the chest. The gun DISCHARGES one more time.

FADE OUT:




AGENT COOPER can be heard falling to the ground with a THUD.
