Drat, I was just about to post MY new quote list but Rob Jellinghaus beat
me to the punch with a long, very good list.  So, I will confine myself 
to listing only those quotes that Rob didn't have, that were incomplete, or
that had small, insignificant errors.  

Also, if anyone has Judge Sternwood's
Valhalla speech or Lucy's rundown of what happened in Twin Peaks the
night Cooper was shot, I think those deserve to be on the list.

Thanks to all those who sent me quotes -- if you don't see yours here,
then they're on Rob's list as well, and maybe Bill Sherman's list too.

I did a quick, inaccurate count of the number of favorite quotes per character.
Characters who only said something as a foil for another character didn't get
credit, so this is subjective as well as inaccurate.  
Characters who were only around for a few episodes (like Albert) are
obviously at a disadvantage....NO, I am NOT going to calculate average number
of favorite quotes per character per episode-minute!  Jeez!

	We lived among the people.  I think you say...convenience store?
	We lived above it.  I mean it as it is, like it sounds.

	shoulder.  Ah, but when I saw the face of God, I was changed.
	I took the entire arm off.  My name is Mike; his name is Bob.

Leo:  	Problem?  You think you've got a problem?...Problem?  You
