Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (shooting script):
10. INT. DESMOND'S CAR - SAME
As they barrel down the highway -
That was really something. That
(after a beat)
What did it mean?
Code. If you work with Gordon you learn
that right away.
Code, I've heard a lot about this.
Desmond pulls his arm back so that only his fingers come out of his sleeve.
Sort of shorthand.
(missing the humor)
We're heading into a difficult situation.
How do you figure?
I'll explain it to you. Do you remember
As Desmond explains we -
11. FLASHBACK: LIL'S DANCE
In slow motion.
ON LIL'S SOUR FACE
Lil was wearing a sour face.
What do you mean?
Her face had a sour look... that means
we're going to have trouble with the
local authorities. They are not going to
be receptive to the FBI.
ON LIL BLINKING BOTH EYES

sheriff's uncle in federal prison.
So the sheriff had got an Uncle who's
committed a serious crime.
ON LIL'S RED WIG
Right, which is probably why Lil was
wearing a red wig meaning we are
headed into a dangerous situation. Let
me ask you something, Stanley, did you
notice anything about the dress?
The dress she was wearing had been
altered to fit her. I noticed a different
colored thread where the dress had been
taken in. It wasn't her dress or she
must have lost some weight.
Gordon said you were good. The tailored
dress is our code for drugs. Did you
notice what was pinned to it?
A blue rose.
Very good, but I can't tell you about
Stanley rides along quietly for a while.
