Ike the Spike's M.O. of killing with a screwdriver (or icepick?) reminiscent of INLAND EMPIRE.

Another Naomi/sandwich occurrence.

May have been mentioned but the moment when Dr Jacoby shines his torch up underneath his face reminded me of Dean Stockwell singing in Blue Velvet, where he holds the light in the same way.

Cooper standing in the middle of the elevator looking right at the camera while the door slowly closes before him was very reminiscent of Eraserhead

Great catch! Right down to holding the case files with both arms, like Henry with his grocery bag!

Maybe not the most apt reference, but Ike "The Spike"'s swirling around of his pick for maximum carnage reminded me of "Put the pick in Pete, and turn it round . . . real neat."

Laura Dern saying "Look at me" (twice) to DoppelCoop reminiscent of IE's "Look at me and tell me if you've known me."

Also, her saying "Who are you?" reminded me of Laura saying "Who are you? Who are you really?" in FWWM.
This is - excuse me - a damn fine cup of coffee.

Scarletlettermkr pointed out in another thread that an amnesiac (DougieCoop) riding in the back of a limo with a lot of money and ending up at the door of a character played by Naomi Watts (Part 4) has an obvious MD feel.

Except that in MD the amnesiac was Rita (and she wasn't an amnesiac until the limo ride ended in a car accident). But yeah, limos, amnesiacs, Naomi and bags of cash do evoke a MD feel.

Reminds me also of the spinning fan, donuts, a spinning record, the ring, etc.

All the kicked up dirt that resembles smoke when DoppelCoop is killed recalls the end of Mulholland Drive, even turning into a blue hue as in Silencio/Diane's bedroom.
Lots of the B&W scenes obviously recall Eraserhead but more so Inland Empire for me, particularly the use of vignettes and digital smearing/discolouring.
The projector scene also references the end of Inland Empire.

Lots of Lost Highway vibes during the killing of DoppelCoop I'd say.

Also forgot to mention the shower of pencil scrapings from Eraserhead seem to directly return
