Kevin looks to leave the Double R Diner, James Hurley is sullen and boring him, so he finally just stands up to leave. As he turns, an entire piece of cherry pie hits him in the chest. He realizes he has bumped into a waitress. She has a look of horror on her face and she stares at the pie stuck to Durant’s shirt.
“Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry, sir,” she says.
“It’s okay, accidents happen,” he says a little frustrated.
“Here, let me get that for you,” she says as she peels back the pie from his shirt like it’s a sticker stuck to a wall. “Don’t worry about your bill. Oh, you didn’t order anything.”
“I was just meeting a friend,” he turns to James, who has his t shirt pulled over his head but you can hear him quietly crying. Durant sighs.
“Why don’t you let me buy you a cup of coffee,” the waitress says, as she is already leading him to the counter.
Kevin pulled up and was instantly rewarded with a slice of pie and a cup of coffee. He sipped to be polite, but he was anxious to figure out what One Eyed Jacks was.
“So, you must be the new basketball player. I’m Shelly Johnson. Do you like it in Twin Peaks so far?”
“Yeah, it’s just…I’ve been looking for someone,” he said. “This coffee is fine..damn fine.”
“Looking? For a girl?”
“It’s not like that. But it’s a girl. Say, do you know this place One Eyed Jacks?”
“You shouldn’t be looking for girls at One Eyed Jacks. That place is nothing but trouble.”
“I figured, but how would I get there?”
“You have to take a boat down the river, it’s in Canada. But I’m telling you….”
Shelly disappears into the back of the diner. Kevin looks at the pie, which smells delicious. “You’ll have to burn this off by tonight, Kev,” he says to himself as he forked a mouthful.
The bell of the door rang, but Kevin was too busy eating to pay attention. He feels the presence of someone sitting next to him at the counter. He turns to see an older woman, wearing a large cardigan sweater. Her glasses are huge and her hair is cut short. He almost doesn’t notice that she is holding a log. They both slowly look each other up and down.
She looks away from him and says very clearly “One day my log will have something to say about this.”
