Director David Lynch’s early ’90s cultural phenomenon is about to come back into style when Twin Peaks returns to Showtime on May 21. Not much is known about the revival aside from the mammoth list of cast members — nearly everyone from the original series, plus myriad new faces — but fans can be sure it will be full of strange and scary David Lynch moments like the ones from the original series that are forever burned into our brains.

In preparation for the show’s return, Rotten Tomatoes has compiled a list of the 15 most iconic, bizarre and terrifying moments from the first two seasons, so take a walk down memory with lane with us — and try not to let BOB get you.
