Re: Part 13 - What story is that, Charlie? (SPOILERS)

I doubt it. He didn't even know who Bettie Page was when Patricia Arquette wanted her hairdo.

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

Re: Part 7 - There's a body all right (SPOILERS)

I don't get it. I always thought 'tough cookie' meant she's 'tough to handle', has a 'strong personality', things like that. Am I missing something? Yeah, that's exactly what it means.
