Destroy! Twin Peaks - Season 3 Episode 1

Twin Peaks - Season 3 Episode 1

By Dan Ness

Twin Peaks. You either loved it, or you hated. I loved it, and for a time so did a lot of other people. But the television audience is a fickle creature, and after the question ďWho Killed Laura Palmer?Ē lost its appeal, the vewers fled in droves, seeking something a little less cerebral. My introduction to Twin Peaks was the last two episodes, watched secretly on an antique television while the rest of the house was asleep. It became my favourite show, and I didnít have a clue what it was about. My next episode was the film, Fire Walk With Me, screened on BBC2. It became my favourite film. I *still* didnít have a clue what it was about. I started collecting the tapes from volume one, meaning I didnít see the Pilot until I was six episodes in. Hell, I didnít even realize that there was a Pilot until I was six episodes in.

I ventured onto the Internet part of the way through the series, and the first fan fiction I ever read online was Twin Peaks fan fiction, viewed through an ancient copy of Mosaic. It wasnít very good. The best story (Passion Play) was never finished. And there was an extremely dubious X-Files crossover.

I think that there is a Twin Peaks fanfic archive somewhere, but itís dusty with neglect and contains only fiction from the early nineties. I think that Twin Peaks deserves better than this. Itís taken television ten years to catch up with David Lynch and Mark Frostís vision, ten years before Buffy and The X-Files brought intelligent viewing back to the unwashed masses. Twin Peaks was a show of unparralelled invention, and stands alongside the Prisoner as a being one of the few shows to make a nation go ďHuh?Ē in unison as they tried to work out what the hell was going on in their cathode ray tube.

This is my tribute to a great show. I wanted to co-write a whole virtual season, but I fear that there just isnít an audience. This was my first attempt at a proper script, and is rather technical and rough around the edges. There are a number of familiarly twisted scenes, Twin Peaks-isms, jokes and arc plotting, and in some respects it isnít bad, but I certainly donít think itís anything special. I hope you all enjoy it anyway. As usual all feedback can be directed to me. I await your ďYou wrote this and you had the cheek to give me [1/5]?Ē mails eagerly. Oh, and if you havenít seen Twin Peaks through in its entirety, *donít* expect to understand it.

Here we can see a CLERK sleeping and DELL tottering slowly from the bank vault, tipping his head to AUDREY HORNE as he shuffles around her. She smiles encouragingly at him.

CUT to

VAULT

We see ANDREW PACKARD and PETE MARTELL standing in front of a wall of safety deposit boxes, with ANDREW PACKARD opening one up with a key. As it is opened we see a bomb and a piece of paper with the words "Got you, Andrew, Love, Thomas." on it. There is a blinding flash of light.

ANDREW: Oh SH-! (screams, puts his hands to his eyes and collapses on the floor)

PETE: (looks down at ANDREW, concerned) Andrew?

Angle on DELL, who slowly turns around and shuffles back into the vault.

Angle on PETE, who crouches down beside ANDREW, blinking away the flash.

Angle on AUDREY, who lets DELL pass and opens the gate to see what is going on.

Angle on PETE

PETE: Andrew, are you okay.

In the background we hear a BEEPING.

ANDREW: Blast him! I canít see! Pete, help me up. (flails his arms to try and find PETE)

PETE: (grabbing an arm and helping him up) Sure thing, Andrew. (he is rather bemused by what is going on)

DELL: (in a raised voice) Is something wrong? You canít see?

(DELL shuffles slowly across the vault, taking his glasses off and holding them in out in front of him)

DELL: Will these help?

One of ANDREWíS flailing arms catches the glasses and knocks them into the box. DELL starts after them but PETE, still steadying ANDREW, reaches towards the box to pick them up. He halts, one arm tucked under ANDREWíS armpit, the other halfway to the box.

Angle on BOMB DISPLAY

The display reads :52, :51, :50

PETE: (OS) Itís a bomb.

Angle on ANDREW

He stops moving, his eyes still screwed up. He tilts his head to hear the BEEPING.

Angle on PETE

He turns to face the camera, his face radiating panic. The background seems to move into the distance.

PETE: Itís a bomb!

Angle on VAULT

DELL makes a rasping noise in the back of his throat and raises his arms in despair. He slowly shuffles towards the VAULTíS entrance.

Angle on AUDREY.

AUDREY looks worried and starts to rattle her CHAINS, straining to break them.

Angle on ANDREW and PETE

ANDREW: (reaching blindly for PETEíS shoulder) For Godís sake help me, Pete!

PETE puts an arm around ANDREWíS shoulders and moves him towards the door.

Angle on BANK

DELL is still shuffling towards the door of the bank with his hands in the air. As ANDREW and PETE pass AUDREY, she looks imploringly at PETE.

PETE: Just you hang on in there, Audrey.

They pass Dell and reach the door.

EXT. TWIN PEAKS SAVINGS AND LOAN, DAY.

PETE carries ANDREW through the door. Outside there are some people milling about, including a WORKER with a TOOLBOX working on some nearby power lines. They look questioningly at PETE.

PETE: Thereís a bomb!

The people start to scream and run as PETE unceremoniously dumps ANDREW on a patch of grass. He takes a deep breath and looks around, sees the TOOLBOX and grabs it.

WORKER: Hey!

PETE runs back into the BANK

INT. TWIN PEAKS SAVINGS AND LOAN, DAY.

PETE enters the room and runs to AUDREY. DELL has made a little progress. In the background we can still hear the BEEPING.

Angle on VAULT DOOR.

PETE kneels beside AUDREY and rummages through the TOOLBOX, throwing various tools hither and thither.

AUDREY: Hurry!

Angle on DELL passing the CLERK

Angle on VAULT DOOR.

PETE finally finds something of use, a BOLT CUTTER.

PETE: Stand back!

AUDREY stands as far back as possible as PETE cuts the CHAIN. There is a CRACKLE of electricity. It starts to fall off and AUDREY tugs herself free. She kisses PETE on the cheek and runs for the DOOR.

Angle on DELL.

He is almost out of the BANK as AUDREY passes him by.

Angle on VAULT DOOR.

PETE grabs the TOOLBOX and looks at the BOX. He turns and runs towards the DOOR, passing the CLERK. He turns back and tries to wake up the CLERK, but to no avail. He tries to pick her up but she is too heavy. He gives up and runs from the bank.

Angle on BOMB DISPLAY. :03, :02, :01.

EXT. TWIN PEAKS SAVINGS AND LOAN, DAY.

The bomb explodes and blows out the windows.

Angle on DELL shuffling across the road to the grass where ANDREW and AUDREY are, PETE moving him along.

Angle on SMOKING REMAINS.

Angle on GROUP as DELL and PETE join them. They look at the REMAINS.

ANDREW: Thank you, Pete.

PETE: There was a woman still in there. I couldnít wake her up.

AUDREY: (patting his arm) You did your best. You saved me.

Angle on REMAINS.

We see an AMBULANCE pull up outside the REMAINS.

Angle on GROUP.

DELL: Theyíve arrived!

PETE: (looking at DELL) Why are *they* here?

DELL: Ah, Mrs Calloway, one of our clerks, died of a heart attack this morning. I had so much to do I couldnít telephone the hospital until just before you arrived.

AUDREY smiles. PETE looks relieved.

Angle on REMAINS. PARAMEDICS are getting out of the AMBULANCE and looking bewilderedly at them. A BANK GUARD runs on screen.

Angle on GROUP.

The BANK GUARD joins the group and beams at them. He looks at the remains and then back at them.

GUARD: (ecstatic) Iím a father!

GROUP look at one another.

DELLíS GLASSES land on the GRASS, followed by spinning dollars.

At their long table sit BEN HORNE, SYLVIA HORNE and JOHNNY HORNE (in Native American outfit), all eating their meal in silence. There is the occasional clank of cutlery on plate.

Suddenly, in bursts JERRY HORNE.

JERRY: My one and only family! So glad to see you again.

BEN: (patting mouth with serviette and standing) Jer!

Angle on JERRY

JERRY: (throws open arms in greeting) Brother Ben! You look G-R-E-A-T!

Angle on BEN, lapping up the praise. He has a sticking plaster on his forehead.

JERRY: So healthy! Sylivia!

Angle on DINING ROOM

JERRY walks over to SYLVIA and bends down, pretending to kiss her cheek.

CU on JERRY and SYLVIA.

JERRY whispers into SYLVIAíS EAR.

JERRY: (whispering) Heís not still insane, is he?

SYLVIA: (looks at him, shocked. Then looks pointedly at her husband) Ben!

Angle on DINING ROOM.

JERRY walks jauntily over to BEN, pausing to pat JOHNNY on the head dress. He gurgles appreciatively.

Angle on BEN and JERRY

JERRY: (grabbing BENíS arms and looking concerned) How are you, Ben. Howíre things? What were you doing last- ah, yes. Saving the Little Pine Weasel.

BEN: And putting a stop to the development of Ghostwood.

JERRY: And putting a stop to the development of Ghostwood. Because (is obviously reciting something he has learnt off by heart) such an area of natural beauty is too precious to be destroyed.

BEN: Exactly!

Angle on DINING ROOM.

SYLVIA puts down her knife and fork and leaves the room in a huff.

Angle on BEN and JERRY.

JERRY turns his head to watch her leave, then turns back to his brother. He looks at him strangely.

JERRY: Ben . . .

BEN: Jer . . .

ECU on BENíS sticking plaster. JERRYíS index finger points to it.

JERRY: How on Earth did you do that.

BEN: You know, Jer, itís the funniest thing. I woke up this morning . . .

CU on BEN

BEN: . . . and I felt this terrible pain, right here (points to sticking plaster), on my head. I got up and went to the bathroom. Looked in a mirror and there it was.

CU on JERRY

JERRY: (bemused) The band aid?

CU on BEN

BEN: No. (whispers) What is *under* the band aid.

CU on JERRY

JERRY: (whispers) And what *is* under the band aid, Ben?

CU on BEN

BEN: There was a wound, clotted over. It was quite bad at the time; still bleeding a little. I put the band aid on right after I saw it. And I donít know how it got there. (pulls out a carrot from his blazer pocket and looks at it for a while, rolling it between finger and thumb before putting it away again. He looks hard at JERRY)

Angle on BEN and JERRY.

(beat)

JERRY: (breaks into a grin) You old dog!

BEN: (smiles puzzledly) What?

JERRY: Benjamin Horne, always the talent scout!

BEN: (smile straining) I donít understand, Jer.

JERRY: Last night! Miss Twin Peaks! Find some fresh meat for olí One Eyed Jacks! Boy, you must have had such a wild night you canít remember who or what hit you.

BEN: (tries to interrupt him) Jer . . .

JERRY: . . . not the first time either. I remember some nights with L-P, R-I-P that . . .

BEN: Jer!

JERRY: . . . that . . . (notices BEN) What?

BEN: Nothing happened, Jerry. Nothing happened, (looks confused) last night. In fact I canít remember last night at all. (mutters to himself) Owls? The lights went out . . .

JERRY: I bet they did. (takes his arm and leads him away) Letís go sit by a big log fire and talk about saving those trees.

INT. RR DINER, DAY.

The Diner is still almost empty. SHELLEY is slouched over the counter, looking utterly bored. In front of her is the WOMAN WITH WOOLEN HAT. She is devouring a piece of cherry pie with great speed, shovelling it in with a fork and pushing it around with the fingers of her other hand.

HAT WOMAN: (through mouthful) This sure is a good piece of pie.

SHELLEY: (bored) Itís the best in the Tri-counties.

HAT WOMAN: Well, I wouldnít go *that* far. But it is good.

She tucks away the last bite and skates a finger across the plate to mop up the remainder of the syrup.

HAT WOMAN: Iíll have another piece, thank you.

SHELLEY sighs and takes the empty plate away.

Angle on DOOR.

The door opens with the JANGLE of itís bell, and AUDREY HORNE walks in. She sits three seats down from the HAT WOMAN.

Angle on HAT WOMAN.

She is rummaging through a moth-eaten old purse to find some money, and pulls out a tatty note. She looks up at AUDREY.

Angle on AUDREY

AUDREY: (smiles) Hi.

AUDREY smiles at the woman, who sniffs and hides her purse away under her coat. SHELLEY returns with another plate of pie, and sees AUDREY.

SHELLEY: Oh, hi Audrey.

AUDREY: Hi.

SHELLEY: Iíll be with you in a minute, okay?

AUDREY: Sure.

SHELLEY places the pie down in front of the HAT WOMAN, who grudgingly offers her the NOTE. SHELLEY takes it, holding it out in badly disguised disgust. She walks over to the register.

HAT WOMAN: (getting to work on the pie) I want some change out of that, mind you. Itís a twenty.

SHELLEY: Itís a ten, and youíve already had six pieces.

HAT WOMAN: (grudgingly) If you say so. Damn government. Money shrinking all the time.

She opens her mouth to display her cherry stained teeth, which she points to.

HAT WOMAN: (through teeth) In league with aliens that drill your teeth!

She continues with her pie.

HAT WOMAN: (through mouthful) Canít trust anyone, these days.

SHELLEY walks over to AUDREY.

Angle on SHELLEY and AUDREY.

AUDREY: Friend of yours?

SHELLEY: (screams under her breath) She just sits there, eating pie after pie, telling me her wacky conspiracy stories. Says aliens are drilling her teeth. Says that the government is poisoning her water to make her hands shake. Usually, a customer that just sits there shovelling it in would be great, but Normaís out with Big Ed Hurley and Iím supposed to be going over to Bobbyís place tonight to have dinner with his parents. I should have left by now. I need some time to get changed.

AUDREY: (a little boastful) Well Iíve just come from the Savings and Loan and it was bombed.

SHELLEY: Bombed?

Angle on DINER.

HAT WOMAN: Itís the government I tell you.

Both girls heads turn as she speaks.

HAT WOMAN: Might as well reinstate Nixon.

Angle on SHELLEY and AUDREY.

They continue their conversation

AUDREY: I was almost blown up.

SHELLEY: Really?

AUDREY: Really! Anyway, Iíd really like a chocolate malted.

SHELLEY starts to make the milk shake.

SHELLEY: (formulating an idea) Howíd you like all the shakes you can drink for free, bomb girl.

AUDREY: Sounds great. Whatís the catch?

SHELLEY looks at her, then at the HAT WOMAN.

AUDREY turns to look at the HAT WOMAN.

FOCUS on HAT WOMAN.

HAT WOMAN: (not looking up) I can see you.

Angle on AUDREY and SHELLEY.

They both turn back to each other.

AUDREY: (realising) Oh, no. No way.

SHELLEY: Oh, come on. Just this once. Itíd mean so much to me.

AUDREY: (finally) Okay. But free shakes, right?

SHELLEY: You bet! Youíre the best!

She finishes making the shake and scoops up her coat. AUDREY opens the hatch and steps through.

AUDREY: Of course.

Angle on DOOR.

SHELLEY pauses in front of the DOOR looks at the HAT WOMAN . . .

Angle on HAT WOMAN

Angle on DOOR

. . . gives a relieved smile, and leaves, the DOORíS bell JANGLING.

Angle on DINER.

AUDREY stands in front of the HAT WOMAN with her shake. After a while she speaks to her.

AUDREY: You know, my daddy is Ben Horne and heís gonna run for the senate.

The HAT WOMAN stops her chewing and looks at her for a while. She swallows her mouthful.

HAT WOMAN: I was just leaving.

She leaves the DINER.

AUDREY smiles to herself and sucks on the straw of her milk shake.

Angle on COOPER

ANDREW: So she gave Catherine a box . . .

PETE: A puzzle box.

ANDREW: . . . and inside was another box . . .

PETE: *Another* puzzle box.

ANDREW: . . . and inside that one was a box . . .

Angle on PETE, ANDREW and AUDREY

ANDREW: . . . and inside *that* one was the last box.

PETE: And inside that one was a key.

ANDREW: and we took it to the bank.

PETE: It was a key to a safety deposit box.

HARRY: This woman. Was she tall, blonde . . ?

Angle on ANDREW et all

ANDREW: I didnít see her. The box went directly to Catherine.

Angle on COOPER

COOPER: Then we had better call Catherine in. Good day. (He stands and turns to leave, before half-turning as though remembering something) Commiserations Audrey, on not winning the pageant. There were so many great women . . .

Angle on AUDREY, standing to leave.

AUDREY: What pageant?

COOPER: (confused) Right.

He leaves the room and HARRY looks after him, concerned.

HARRY: Thanks for telling us; you know the way out. Pete, could you tell Catherine to come in when she comes home?

PETE: (leaving the room) You betcha, Harry.

As ANDREW is about to exit the room, HARRY puts a hand on his shoulder.

ANDREW: Something the matter, Harry?

HARRY: Uh, Andrew, arenít you - dead?

ANDREW: Rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated, my boy.

HARRY: But the funeral. I was there. I saw the coffin.

ANDREW: Ah, the many uses of heavy rocks. Truly they are manís best friend. No, the fact of the matter was that I knew that I was going to be killed . . .

HARRY: (uncomfortably) By Josie.

ANDREW: Eckhardt through Josie, yes. I hid away in our familyís old cabin by Pearl Lakes for a while until the fuss had died down a little. I went on an expedition to Hong Kong, acquired some money and returned to Twin Peaks, biding my time.

HARRY: Biding your time Ďtil what?

ANDREW: (sighs) I never found out, things started to happen fast enough to carry me along in their current. I was there to help my sister, though. I suppose that must count for something.

HARRY: The Packards are a hard family to kill.

ANDREW: That they are, Harry. (in a lower voice) Harry, I know that you were fond of Josie- we all were. I may be leaving soon, but anything I find of hers, anything at all; itís yours.

HARRY: Thanks, Andrew. I appreciate it.

ANDREW: Weíve known each other far too long to let a woman come between us. I really believe that, come the end, she loved you. Until our paths cross again.

ANDREW leaves HARRY standing by the door, a little choked. He straightens up and leaves the room, closing the door behind him.

ANDY: Lucy, I know battleships. They are ships that have battles. And sometimes the battles are far away, so they have to move to them. Maybe my battleship has moved.

Angle on BETTY

BETTY: Oh, you poor thing. My sister Kate had exactly the same problem with her second husband Ralph. He would get so drunk with his friends and come home and beat the living daylights out of her. She used to call me, crying her heart out . . .

Angle on GARLAND

GARLAND: And she was not an emotional woman.

Angle on BETTY

BETTY: . . . and I would tell her she *had* to leave him. (pause while she shovels another forkful in) In the end she killed him.

BEN: Bill!

Angle on DOORWAY

We can see the HAYWARD clan coming through the DOORWAY, all five of them. They were laughing and joking until BENíS voice cuts through their conversation. DONNA starts to look suspicious. WILLIAM and EILEEN look dismayed.

JERRY: Uh, sure. Iíll be over in just a minute.

As BEN stands up and walks to the HAYWARDS, EILEEN shoots a stern look at WILLIAM, who shrugs helplessly. They all walk over to an empty table and BEN pulls a couple of extra chairs from a nearby table.

Angle on JERRY

He takes his as yet untouched glass of Scotch and drains it.

JERRY: (to the BARTENDER) Hit me again.

The BARTENDER pours him another Scotch and he downs this one too, before standing, belching, and turning with a fake smile.

WILLIAM: Iíd better go and get some drinks. Lemonades all round?

DONNA: Fine.

GURSTEN and HARRIET nod in agreement.

EILEEN: (looking warily at BEN) Uh, gin and tonic, please.

WILLIAM: (stands and looks warily at BEN) I think Iíll get myself some whisky.

He leaves, passing JERRY who sits on WILLIAMíS vacated seat, between DONNA and HARRIET.

JERRY: Heaven! Surrounded by lovely ladies!

HARRIET giggles while DONNA looks away, disgusted.

BEN: My my my; how time doth fly. I havenít seen you (points to GURSTEN) nor you (points to HARRIET) in quite a while. Now you are young women that the boarding school hides away from sight. A pianist and a poet. How are you processing in your (takes a sip from his glass) respective skills.

HARRIET: I won a school prize for poetry last semester; a cup.

GURSTEN: And my piano teacher, Mr Ivors, says that Iím the best pupil heís ever worked with. He says that I have raw talent.

BEN: (to Eileen) You must be very proud.

EILEEN: William and I are very proud of all three of our children.

There is an awkward pause.

JERRY: How about you Donna. What are you good at?

DONNA: (standing) You must excuse me. I have to go to the bathroom.

SHELLEY: (OS) . . . and I stood in front of all the class, my book report in my hands, though I thought I had it completely memorised.

INT. HAYWARD RESIDENCE, NIGHT. LOUNGE.

The BRIGGS family is sitting listening to SHELLEY relating a story, BOBBY next to her; BETTY and GARLAND on another settee.

SHELLEY: I began to speak and I couldnít get the first line out. I looked at the report, looked at the teacher, looked at the room- and fainted dead away.

BETTY: I know exactly what you mean! I was in a Christmas play when I was seven, playing the Angel Gabriel, if you ever, and I was so nervous I was sick into the crib just before the curtains were pulled back. Of course, I never told anyone. Miriam Shelby, she was playing the Virgin Mary, she pulled the doll of Jesus from the manger and it was dripping with vomit.

SHELLEY: (laughs) Really?

BETTY: (laughs) Really! And you know what? I was so scared that the Lord would strike me down for blaspheming that I could hardly sleep for a month!

The family laughs for a while.

BOBBY: Mom, how come you never told me that story before?

BETTY: Iím not sure, honey. I guess I never had a reason to tell it before.

SHELLEY takes a glass of wine from the coffee table between the settees, and has a sip.

SHELLEY: What about you, Major Briggs? I bet you have some exciting tales to tell, what with you being in the Airforce and all.

GARLAND: Yes, Shelley, I do. (looks at BETTY) But Iím afraid that they are classified. For the moment.

SHELLEY: Some other time, perhaps.

GARLAND: Perhaps.

There is a moments silence, through which is heard the ticking of a clock. SHELLEY looks at the clock.

SHELLEY: Uh, I . . . thank you very much for the dinner, for everything, but Iíve got work tomorrow and I really have to tidy the place up. It looks like a tornado hit it.

BETTY: I understand completely. (to GARLAND) We really must do this again.

SHELLEY: Uh, yes. (smiles brightly) Iíd like that.

BOBBY: (standing) Iíll get your coat. (to his parents) Iíll be staying over at Shelleyís tonight, just in case Leo decides to show his face again.

GARLAND: Certainly, son.

BOBBY leaves the room, closely followed by GARLAND. We hear FOOTSTEPS on a staircase. BETTY and SHELLEY stand.

SHELLEY: Well, Mrs Briggs . . .

BETTY: Oh, Betty, please.

SHELLEY: Betty. Iíll be off.

BETTY smiles sadly, then gives her a big hug. SHELLEY is understandably quite taken with this.

CU on BETTYíS FACE

BETTY: (tears starting to trickle down her face) Take care, Shelley.

CU on SHELLEYíS FACE

She is bewildered.

Angle on DOORWAY.

BOBBY has SHELLEYíS coat on. He is pulling it to try and get a better fit.

GARLAND: (OS) Bobby!

BOBBY hurriedly pulls off the coat, throwing it on the floor. He is wearing his leather jacket underneath. We see GARLAND walking down the stairs.

GARLAND: Bobby.

BOBBY: Uh, Iím just getting Shelleyís coat, Dad.

GARLAND: (now standing by his son) Son, Iíd like you to have this.

He hands BOBBY the gun BOBBY had given SHELLEY.

BOBBY: A gun?

GARLAND: Iíve had this gun for nigh on thirty years now. Some time ago I found that it had gone missing. Of course, my first suspect for its theft was you.

BOBBY: Dad, I can explain everything.

GARLAND: No need, son. I received it through the post a few days ago, in a plain brown envelope. The handwriting the address was written in was one very familiar to me: it was Shelleyís, wasnít it.

BOBBY: Yes, it was.

GARLAND: I knew the hand from the diner. (confidentially) Son, what you did was a noble thing: the man who beats his wife just isnít a man at all. But next time, tell me. There is no need to steal from your father. (hands gun to BOBBY) The gun is now yours. Use it wisely and it will always protect you.

BOBBY: (grateful) Thanks, Dad.

SHELLEY and BETTY join the scene. BOBBY picks up the coat and opens the door.

SHELLEY: Well, thanks for a great evening.

GARLAND: Donít mention it.

SHELLEY: (leaving through the door and giving a small wave of her hand) ĎBye.

GARLAND and BETTY stand on the doorstep and watch as BOBBY and SHELLEY leave.

JERRY: (singing) I am sailing, I am sailing, ĎCross the ocean, ĎCross the sea . . .

He wildly gestures with his hands, portraying his words in action.

TRACK around the table to where DONNA is chatting to JOEY PAULSON.

TRACK past them to a booth where ED HURLEY and NORMA JENNINGS are quietly sitting.

ED: Have you told anyone yet?

NORMA: Well, Shelley knows; she was there when you proposed. I told Annie (looks a little puzzled), thatís it. How about you?

ED: No one. Just the girl it matters to.

NORMA: (laughs) Ed, Iím hardly a girl any more. (teases) If you prefer them young, perhaps you had better stay with Nadine.

ED: Donít even joke about it. That poor womanís so screwed up inside- and sheís marrying that Mike now. I dread to think what would happen if she ever came around.

NORMA: (softly) You really loved her, didnít you Ed.

ED: No. Maybe. When you went off with Hank, it was like a blindfold had been wrapped around my heart. Nadine helped through the bad times, but she was more like a crutch than . . .

NORMA: Than what?

ED: Than a wife. There were times that I loved her so much that I wished that we had never tied the knot. Like when I shot out her eye.

NORMA: That could have easily been me.

ED: Youíd Ďaí looked good in an eye patch.

NORMA: (laughs, then goes quiet) Ed, I saw you in the hospital, after she had taken the overdose. I was visiting Shelley and I saw you sitting there with her. You were looking at her like you were drowning and she was the only thing that was keeping you afloat.

She begins to cry.

ED: Norma . . .

NORMA: I saw you sitting there and there was nothing I could do: You were hers. That was all there was to it.

ED: Well, honey now Iím yours, and weíll be together until the day we bury each other. Nadineís got herself a man she can relate to. Nadineís happy. We can be happy too.

NORMA: Oh, Ed!

They kiss over the table.

Track back to the HAYWARDíS TABLE

JERRY is still singing, and WILLIAM is becoming increasingly tired of him.

JERRY: (singing). . . take one down, pass it around, twenty nine bottles of beer on the wall.

WILLIAM: (interrupting) Uh, Jerry, we really have to be going home now. The girls are tired and we have an early start tomorrow.

JERRY: (slurred) Hey, Doc, stick around. Itís not like you have to be up for the dawn chorus. Wait, maybe you do! We can sing in the new day together! (singing) Oh . . .

BEN has returned to the table and interrupts his brother.

BEN: Thatís quite enough, Jerry. (to WILLIAM) Iím afraid that my brother cannot hold his drink. I apologise for this, *and* his terrible singing voice.

JERRY: (slurred) Címon, Ben. Join in!

WILLIAM: (standing) Come on, girls. Weíre leaving.

PETE MARTELL and ANDREW PACKARD are sat at the kitchen table, eating sandwiches hugely piled with filling. ANDREW is relating a story.

ANDREW: . . .so when we come back from the trip the first thing mother did was call in our local doctor, Doctor Hayward . . .

PETE: (disbelieving) Doc Hayward?

ANDREW: Yes.

PETE: *Bill* Hayward?

ANDREW: Oh, no. Justin was his name.

PETE: (realising) Oh. Right. I remember Catherine saying something about him, now. Billís father. Bill Hayward is *my* doctor.

ANDREW: Ah, yes. Doctoring and the Haywards go back for many generations. Anyway, Catherine was not very amused at missing out on a clarinet lesson . . .

PETE: Iíll bet.

ANDREW: . . . and while the doctor was seeing to me she threw a crying fit. Well the doctor couldnít continue my eye examination, and he had a word with mother. The next thing I knew was that there was a terrible silence. I couldnít hear anything, I couldnít see anything- I thought that I was dead!

They both laugh heartily.

PETE: (laughing) What . . . what had happened?

ANDREW: Well, unbeknownst to me he had taken a syringe and plugged Catherine in the backside with it. Injected her with ten see sees of I donít know what, put her to sleep for the rest of the day!

PETE roars with laughter, and a piece of sandwich catches in her throat. He starts choking violently, his face turning purple. ANDREW makes a fist and thumps him on the back until the choking subsides.

After a little while they start laughing again.

ANDREW: Well, the doctor did some tests, wrote some results, and didnít come up with anything. To this day I donít know what the condition is. Hyper sensitivity to light. Retinae that are too slow. (takes a bite of his sandwich and speaks through a mouthful) Mmm, this is delicious! Where on earth did you get this mayonnaise?

PETE: Itís home made. (a little sadly) Josie taught me how to make it.

ANDREW: Ah, yes. I thought the taste familiar. Heavenly.

They contemplate the mayonnaise and JOSIE for a while. PETE giggles.

ANDREW: What?

PETE: Iím just remembering a little incident, something that happened around the time that that girl died. I found the body and Harry and that FBI man, Cooper came around to talk to me. Me, Josie and Catherine.

ANDREW: (stands and goes to make himself a cup of coffee) Continue.

PETE: Well Josie asks if they want a drink; Cooper asks for some joe so I go and make some. Bring it in. Turns out Catherine had decided to play a little prank on me. There was a fish in the percolator.

ANDREW: A fish?

PETE: A beautiful rainbow trout. I run in to warn them but it was too late. (laughs) Man, they must have been belching trout all week.

We hear the door open and CATHERINE MARTELL walks in.

PETE: Hello, poodle.

CATHERINE: Iím expecting an important call tomorrow. If you field it and Iím not here, find me.

PETE: If the call is so important, why donít you stay here to get it?

She stops in front of him and gives him a long, hard look. He shrinks under itís intensity.

PETE: Iíll find you, poodle.

CATHERINE: Good.

Angle on LOUNGE

She continues on her way, passing through the kitchen to the lounge area where she hangs up her coat. She then returns to the table and sits down.

CATHERINE: Pete, Iíve had a hard day, finalities on Ghostwood. Make me a cup of coffee, and take the coffee from *my* bag. You know how I hate that slop *you* usually drink . . .

She notices the cake saver.

CATHERINE: Where is the key?

PETE: Well Andrew and I took the key, and it was for one of those safety deposit box doohickeys. We took it to the bank.

CATHERINE: To the bank.

PETE: The Twin Peaks Savings and Loan. (explaining) Well you were so busy with Ghostwood; we didnít know when you were going to be able to get to it. (resuming his story) Anyway we get there and talk to old Dell Shannon, you *must* remember him. We open the box and BOOM! There was a bomb inside!

She is quite overwhelmed by this.

ANDREW: (OS) Quite striking, she was.

CATHERINE: How did you get out?

Angle on KITCHEN

ANDREW: There was a brilliant camera flash that really messed up my eyes, just like when Thomas went camping with us when we were young.

CATHERINE: I remember . . .

ANDREW: Thomas was many things, but his links to me were straight as rules. He would never kill innocents; his morals may have been twisted, but at the end of the day, they were still morals.

PETE: It was a warning.

ANDREW: And Pete saved us all! You are married to a quite remarkable man, Catherine.

CATHERINE: Yes. Yes I know.

ANDREW and PETE sip at their coffee for a while.

ANDREW: Well, itís late. Time to hit the hay. (stands) Good night, sister. Good night, brother in law.

PETE: Good night, brother in law.

ANDREW leaves.

PETE: Iíd best be off, too. (a little sarcastically) Expecting an important Ďphone call tomorrow.

Her eyes are red around the rims. A solitary tear runs down the cheek that PETE patted. She whimpers and wipes it away.
