Cooper and Laura: a visual tribute to the stars of Twin Peaks


(The following visual tribute contains spoilers)


Through the darkness of future past
The magician longs to see
One chants out between two worlds
Fire walk with me

"She's crying out for help!"


"Good Lord, Laura!"

 "Now entering the town of Twin Peaks."


"No key yet, huh?"
 "Still looking."






"Laura kissed me, and she whispered the name of the killer in my ear."


"Do you believe in the soul?"
"Several."
"More than one?"
"Blackfoot legend. Waking souls that give life to the mind and body. A dream soul that wanders."
"Dream souls! Where do they wander?"
"Far-away places. The land of the dead."
"Is that where Laura is?"
"Laura's in the ground, Agent Cooper. That's the only thing I'm sure of."

"What did you see that night? The night Laura was killed?"
"The dark was pressing in on her."


"He was a threatening presence in her life from early adolescence."

"February 22. Last night I had the strangest dream.
"I tried to talk to him...but my words came out slow and odd.
"Even if it was a dream, I hope he heard me. No one in the real world would believe me."
"Laura and I had the same dream."

"My father...
...killed me."

"I see her. She's there! She's beautiful..."
"Into the light, Leland... Don't be afraid."
"Laura!"

"In his last moments, he saw Laura.
"He kept saying how much he loved her.
"And I believe she welcomed him. And she forgave him.
"It's time."

"I'm in the Black Lodge with Dale Cooper."


"I've been with Dale and Laura. The good Dale is in the Lodge and he can't leave. Write it in your diary."

"Don't take the ring, Laura. Don't take the ring!"

 "Where am I and how can I leave?"
"You are here, and there is no place to go...
...but home!"

Thanks, Rich! I very much enjoyed putting it together. Sometimes the images really do speak louder than words. (Although I love Hawk's speech to Cooper as well...)
