Love Letters. This is one of the most haunting and violent scenes in a very haunting and violent movie. Kitty Lester's song about "love letters straight from your heart" serves as the perfect backdrop for the chaos occurring during the rampage. It also gives cool testimony to Frank's insanity. "Do you know what a love letter from me is? It's a bullet from a gun." says Frank.
Jeffery. "Pretty, pretty." says Frank, but I don't think that lipstick is at all flattering. It doesn't seem to be his color. If I was a psychologist, I'd look into Frank's serious mother issues. This is one of the many times he calls out her name before committing a vicious act of violence, this time in an abandoned lumberyard.
Donny. Little Donny seems to be under the influence of some very bad people when Mommy comes to visit him. After the initial joy of her presence, he moves away from her causing his mother to question his love for her. Dorothy's expression after leaving Don and Donny's room is one of the classic moments in this movie.
Suave. I don't know what Ben is about but he is he is truly too cool for school. He moves so slowly you never know where he's going. The fastest move he makes is a punch to Jeffery's stomach. He is officially the strangest kidnapping, torturing, lip-syncing extortionist ever put on screen.
Robins. To quote the movie script,
"...In the dream, the world was dark because there weren't any robins. You know, birds. Robins stood for love. And all of a sudden thousands of robins flew down and brought this blinding light of love. And it felt like that love would be the only thing that would make any difference, and they did, so I guess. There is trouble until the robins come."
Gee, what a neat girl Sandy is. The flowery, wholesome nature of the goodness represented in this film provides a brilliantly stark contrast to the evil. The confrontation between the two is so much more nightmarish that way.
His father has a stroke. The opening scene depicts Jeffery's father watering the lawn until his hose snags, and he's forced to pull it. He then grabs his neck and falls. While he's lying on the ground, the dog attacks the water spray from the hose. The camera moves into the lawn to reveal the bugs underneath - creepy stuff.
In a glass. Frank is very enthusiastic about his beloved Pabst Blue Ribbon and Detective Williams loves Budweiser. Jeffrey's love of Heineken gets him into a lot of trouble several times during the movie, once while flushing a toilet during his warning after drinking a little Heineken, and another time while mentioning Heineken in the presence of Frank Booth, psychopath, lover of COLD beer in a glass.
The Blue Lady. The Blue Lady perfectly describes Isabella Rossellini's character. She is sad for a very good reason as she sings "Blue Velvet" on demand in the Slow Club, the perfect place for David Lynch's strangeness to overwhelm the viewer.
Breathes through a gas mask. Frank Booth is the one of the greatest and weirdest villains of all-time. The inhaling of a mysterious gas before committing unspeakable acts violence is unprecedented in film and will probably never be tried again without somebody pointing to the screen and saying, "Blue Velvet". David Lynch wanted the gas to be helium to show the difference between daddy and infant and right up until the shooting began, it was, but Dennis Hopper thought that made Frank sound funny and suggested another gas with similar effects that didn't change the sound of his voice, and made him a lot more terrifying. The effects are a lot more like Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas), but whatever he was breathing was never mentioned in the film.
Don's. While throwing rocks at an abandoned shack in a field, Jeffrey finds an ear. He places it in a nearby paper bag and takes it to Detective Williams, the local police detective. When Jeffrey decides to find out whose ear it is the mystery of the Vallens family begins.
