The little girl who lived down the lane
Dude, I'm about to have a Mr. C in his car along the highway moment.
Still one of the all time greatest vomit scenes in history.
I can't think of many. Other than that Bad Taste scene...
"The Exorcist" beats them all... 🙂
The exorcist vomit scene was very poignant and important to the history of horror films and was very entertaining and will be talked about and referred to for evermore. But it did not make me start to gag and have to look away like Mr. C's (and Dougie's for that matter) vomit scenes.
As soon as I heard "the little girl who lived down the lane" I thought of the nursery rhyme, baa baa black sheep. A story, of sorts, sung to young children. Is this any relevance to Audrey's mental state?!
Baa, baa, Black Lodge
Have you any Dales?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three different tales
One for the hero
One for BOB's pain
And one for the little girl
Who lives down the lane.
(with apologies to Tommy Thumbs Pretty Song-Book. But after all, where we're from the birds sing a pretty song, and there's always music in the air 😉

That's strange - even for Cooper
When I heard the phrase "The little girl who lived down the lane" I immediately thought of Laura. Of course her house stands in a place much grander than a simple lane, and Audrey lived in the Great Northern (still does?) so she was not Laura's neighbour, but from the point of view of grown-up and brain-addled Audrey, Laura would be forever a "little girl". In "The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer" Laura often refers to herself as such, and some of her most disreputable acquaintances (Jacques, BOB) call her that. After all, Laura Is The One for many of the characters.
It makes me think also of Sarah Palmer, but it's even more of a stretch, though Sarah sometimes shows a litte girl's attitude of fear and confusion. "Lived down the lane" echoes for me a sensation of isolation, of an old loss, of sad, poignant childhood memories.

Jurgen Prochnow was Duke Leto in "Dune", and one of the Woodsmen in "Fire Walk With Me" and "The Missing Pieces".
P.S. I hope BOB doesn't come tonight.
