While in Twin Peaks, Cooper and Cole go to the Double R Diner where he is smitten by waitress Shelly Johnson, whom to his surprise he can hear perfectly well.

Fire Walk with MeEdit

Cole briefs agents Chester Desmond and Sam Stanley on their assignment to investigate the murder of Teresa Banks. Cole uses a coded language, in the attire and gestures of Lil the Dancer, to inform the agents of what to expect in their investigation. Cole describes the Teresa Banks murder case as one of his “blue rose” cases.

The exact meaning of this is never given, but fans have speculated that a “blue rose” case is one involving the supernatural.

2017 seriesEdit

David Lynch is to reprise the role in the upcoming series of Twin Peaks. According to a teaser released for The Secret History of Twin Peaks, he has been promoted to Deputy Director of the FBI since the events of the original series.


He is very hard-of-hearing (wearing large hearing aids) and thus speaks very loud. He often misunderstands what is said to him and replies with comically inappropriate responses. Cole’s coded messages sometimes baffle even his closest colleagues. In the first episode he appears, he says, “Cooper, you remind me today of a small Mexican chihuahua.” The conversation continues as normal, with the issue remaining unsolved, despite Cooper's attempts to find out what a "small Mexican chihuahua" means.
