Although David Lynch has officially said he has left the Showtime reboot of Twin Peaks, the premium cable network themselves have yet to declare the show dead. Lynch said he left because of a dispute over money.

In a post by Mädchen Amick (the show's Shelly Johnson) on her who.say page, the cast of the cult show reunites for a video in an effort to bring Lynch back into the production. Each participating actor delivers their own, usually character appropriate, "Twin Peaks without David Lynch is like..." analogy. Their efforts have also been consolidated into an official Facebook page.

Who else but Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) kicks it off with "Twin Peaks without David Lynch is like a girl without a secret," and it runs through a good chunk of the show's cast. Nadine Hurley (Wendy Robie) shows up with her eyepatch, and of course the Log Lady (Catherine E. Coulson) drops in with "like the log without bark." Conspicuously missing, of course, is Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan).
