Leland slips the letter under Maddy's fingernail in a close up. (The 
letter is stuck on the end of an exacto knife.

I have a gut feeling that while Maddy may not be dead, Sarah is.

I think that the Giant, Senor Drool Cup, and the singer are all owls. The 
singer's lyrics often seem oddly appropriate to the situation (I think 
Lynch is one of the best lyricists I've heard in years -- does anyone 
know whether he, Cruise, or Badalamenti have any other recordings?)

Goofy question #90125: My TV's resolution isn't that good, but the 
guitarist in the band looked a lot like Adrian Belew. Could that be? 
Could he have done it as a goof? (I know the band on the stage was not 
the band on the recording, as the drummer looks nothing like Grady Tate.)

I think it was "Leland says you're going to Missoula... Montana!"

(How far would it be from Missoula to Twin Peaks?)

I noticed that Cooper did >not< enunciate the same phrase exactly -- 
there was a consonant (possibly a "t") between "J`ai" and "une". I think 
this was just a glitch on McLachlan's part.

Speaking of glitches, Ben's glasses fell off when the cops grabbed him, 
and they all walked out without retrieving them, yet he was wearing them 
when they entered the station. (Of course, he may have been carrying a 
spare pair, or someone may have gone back for them, but it struck me as 
an appropriately niggling NetNit.

For me, the scariest shot was when BOB's disembodied head was 
superimposedover Lelands for a flash. Did everyone in the Roadhouse see 
the Giant, or only Cooper, Margaret, and Senor DC?

BTW, is the Roadhouse also the Bang Bang Bar? I had thought they were 
different places.

I was greatly saddened by Harold Smith's death -- he was by far my 
favorite character (with Margaret running a close second).
