Albert: [to Sheriff Truman] Now you listen to me. While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I am a naysayer and hatchetman in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I'll gladly take another because I choose to live my life in the company of Gandhi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method... is love. I love you Sheriff Truman.

Dale: [to Sheriff Truman] Albert's path is a strange and difficult one.

Special: A man that four of us have seen here in Twin Peaks.
FBI: [smiling] Sure. Oh, by the way, you were shot with a Walther PPK. It's James Bond's gun, did you know that?

Special: [very serious] Fellas, let's stand together for a moment. It's time I mentioned something. Now, I'm not sure, but I believe I was visited by a giant. Twice. In my room. He left me three clues. The first had to do with Jacques Renault in a body bag. It came true almost immediately. The second was, "The owls are not what they seem." The third was about a man who points without chemicals.
Sheriff: [perplexed] You were visited... by a giant?
Special: [nods yes]
FBI: Any relation to the dwarf?

- What's that supposed to mean?
- Why don't you sit here and hold hands and try to figure it out.

Donna: As much as I love you, Laura, most of the time we were trying to solve your problems. And you know what? We still are. Not mine or James' or Maddy's. Yours. You're dead Laura, but your problems keep hanging around!

Special: R, B, T. Harry, I believe that these letters and the Giant's clues are in some way related to this long-haired man. Mrs. Palmer saw him in a vision. She called this morning to say that Maddy had seen the man twice in the past two days, both times in a vision. I've seen him in my dreams.
Sheriff: And Ronette.
Special: She saw him physically at the train car.
Sheriff: Right.
Special: Four of us have seen him in different forms. This path is a psychic link that will lead us straight to him.
Sheriff: So, what did this giant sound like? I mean, did he have a big, blooming voice or what?
Special: No, no. He spoke softly, distinctly.
FBI: And you gave him the beans you were supposed to use to buy a cow?
Special: No, Albert, I gave him my ring.

Mike: Bob... I know you're near... I'm after you now.

- Mr. Gerard, you okay?
- Oh. I'm sorry.

James: I was trying to tell you that when you arrested me. But I still don't think Leo planted it or called you at the station that night. I think Mike and Bobby did. They're the ones you should be...
Dale: [cutting him off] James! I don't want to see you down here at the station again. Stop trying to figure it out all by yourself. Find someone to talk to. Talk to me. Now go on home, James. Leave the case to me.

- I don't know.
- I don't know anything anymore.
- Sometimes I think I should just get on my bike and go.
- James.
- Running away won't solve anything.

Donna: How long did you know Laura?
Harold: Ever since she began "Meals on Wheels". I was her best customer.
Donna: You don't seem much like a shut-in.
Harold: You mean, politely, what's the matter with me?
Donna: Okay.
Harold: I don't like to go outside. I... can't.

- What's going on?
- "Without chemicals, he points."
- The giant's third clue.
- Harry, we've got to find the one-armed man.

Benjamin: Agent Cooper. Let me give you the best advice that you're gonna get all week. Men fall under the spell of Audrey's charms like ducks in a shooting gallery.
