No Balls

Audrey tells her husband twice that he has "no balls." This could mean the obvious thing. Or, remember when The Giant spewed out Laura, and the bomb sent out Bob. They're balls. Balls are like a soul?

I could make a joke about someone replacing the "No Stars" song with "No Balls." But I'm not going to... probably.

Anyway, it's an interesting theory, but I don't entirely buy it. Would be interesting and kinda cool if it turned out to be the case. But I don't think that Audrey would be aware of souls, unless her encounter with Mr. C involved a passing of knowledge. I don't entirely buy it though.

“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. It could be a new shirt at the men’s store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.” - Dale Cooper

She meant it in the traditional sense of cowardice. It's very clear in the context.

Exactly.  As in...

No man with functioning testes allows that much paperwork to be dumped on them to complete. 

Some interesting themes overall in terms of fatherhood, people being with decidedly wrong partners, and of course the familiar theme in TP of people being more inclined to consume themselves in going through the motions of their daily business rather than standing up and confronting the things they know to be wrong right in front of them.

I don't believe the OP was implying that Audrey meant he has no soul. After all, our characters don't write their own dialogue (they get sent to the principal's office when they try). There's almost always a secondary, deeper meaning to things shown and said that goes beyond what even the characters know. What Audrey meant and what the scriptwriters meant could be two different things.

One thing I haven't seen mentioned that came to my mind.....

You see Audrey with her dwarf "husband", then you flash back to the Little Man in FWWM.

"With this ring, I thee wed."

Funny semi-related thing somebody noticed on the internet: Audrey asks Charlie (sarcastically) if he's looking into a crystal ball, he replies he has no crystal ball, but as you can see in these pictures he does have a crystal ball!

But waitaminit.  We see Sonny Jim with in this episode.  Is that Charlie's missing ball(s)?  

Maybe if they can get that ball to Charlie, Audrey will be released and restored, in turn releasing and restoring Cooper so that they can ride off together making kissyface.  

I really think I'm on to something here.
