My name is Margaret Lanterman. I live in Twin Peaks. I am known as the Log Lady. There is a story behind that. There are many stories in Twin Peaks – some of them are sad, some funny. Some of them are stories of madness, of violence. Some are ordinary. Yet they all have about them a sense of mystery – the mystery of life. Sometimes, the mystery of death. 

The mystery of the woods. The woods surrounding Twin Peaks. To introduce this story, let me just say it encompasses the All – it is beyond the “Fire”, though few would know that meaning. It is a story of many, but begins with one – and I knew her. The one leading to the many is Laura Palmer. Laura is the one.” – Log Lady

* “(On tape) What’s up doc? Just a few words before I go to sleep. I feel like I’m going to dream tonight. Big bad ones. You know, the kind you like. Its easier talking into the recorder. I guess I feel I can say anything. All my secrets. The naked ones. I know you like those doc. I know you like me too. That’ll be my little secret, okay? Just like your coconut. Why is it so easy to make men like me? And I don’t even have to try very hard. Maybe, if it was harder ” – Laura Palmer

* “Oh, I’ve got compassion running out of my nose, pal! I’m the Sultan of Sentiment! Dr Hayward, I have travelled thousands of miles and apparently several centuries to this forgotten sinkhole in order to perform a series of tests. Now, I do not ask you to understand these tests. I’m not a cruel man. I just ask you to get the hell outta my way, so that I can finish my work! Is that clear?” – Albert Rosenfield

* “One woman can make you fly like an eagle, another can give you the strength of a lion, but only one in the cycle of life can fill your heart with wonder and the wisdom that you have known a singular joy. I wrote that for my girlfriend.” – Deputy Hawk

* “She said people try to be good but they’re really sick and rotten, most of all and every time she tried to make the world a better place, something terrible came up inside her and pulled her back down into hell. Took her deeper and deeper into the blackest nightmare. Every time it got harder to go back up to the light.” – Bobby Briggs

Twin Peaks is back!

* “I’ve got a lot of cutting and pasting to do, gentlemen, so please, why don’t you return to your porch rockers and resume whittling?” – Albert Rosenfield

* “Harry, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it, don’t wait for it, just let it happen. Could be a new shirt at the men’s store, a catnap in your office chair or two cups of good, hot, black coffee. Like this.” – Dale Cooper

* “I’ve had enough of uh, morons and half-wits, dolts, dunces, dullards and dumbbells, and you, chowderhead yokel, you blithering hayseed, you’ve had enough of me?” – Albert Rosenfield to Harry

Haunted by the past in mist of the Peaks

* “My husband was a logging man he met the devil. Fire is the devil, hiding like a coward in the smoke.” – Log Lady

* “This must be a place where pies go when they die.” – Dale Cooper
