''[[Wikipedia:Twin Peaks|Twin Peaks]]'' is a mystery drama TV series, co-created by Lynch, that ran in 1990 and 1991. It spawned a prequel film, ''[[Wikipedia:Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me|Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me]]'' in 1992, and aired a [[Wikipedia:Twin Peaks (season 3)|revival season]] in 2017. The series was well-known for its surrealism and offbeat humor.

*[[DNA Evidence]] The opening titles and ending in which Strong Sad laughs maniacally and appears in a window, on a roof, and behind the cleaning supplies is a direct reference to Killer Bob, mysterious antagonist of Twin Peaks. The character was created because of a happy accident in which crew member Frank Silva was caught in frame during shooting of the pilot, thus explaining the unwieldy positions in which Strong Sad appears.

**The surreal Coach Z Easter egg is an homage to a famous scene from the similarly surreal TV series, Twin Peaks. The background for the scene featured red drapes, and the starring character, Dale Cooper, spills coffee on himself, represented here by Coach Z's streaming hat of coffee. The unusual speech used by Homestar, meanwhile, was the hallmark of the scene; the actors actually spoke their dialogue backwards, and the recording was then played in reverse, so that the words were heard by the audience in their proper order (though they still sounded unusual and contorted, just as Homestar sounds here). It seems as though Matt Chapman faked this technique, rather than actually recording his lines backwards. Twin Peaks was co-created by director David Lynch, whom Strong Sad cited as an influence in Sbemail 150?!?. Additionally, the phrase "I'm not at liberty to discuss [...]" is a direct lift from the lines of Major Garland Brigs, a character on Twin Peaks, who is often unable to talk about what he does for a living.

*[[Sbemail 150?!?]] and Email [[alternate universe]] — The surreal [[Coach Z]] idea, which later appeared as an Easter egg in "alternate universe", is an homage to a famous scene from the show.

The unusual speech that was used by [[Homestar Runner]] in "alternate universe", meanwhile, was the hallmark of the scene; the actors actually spoke their dialogue backwards, and the recording was then played in reverse, so that the words were heard by the audience in their proper order (though they still sounded unusual and contorted, just as Homestar sounds).
