In episode 9 of unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt at the end the step father who seems to to be coming down after doing Heroin sees a White Horse in the restaurant, what is this a reference too? enter image description here

There is a thread on reddit that reckons this is a reference to Twin Peaks:enter image description here

So the question is this a direct homage to Twin Peaks or is it a reference to another famous scene?

  • I thought the white horse in that twin peaks scene was a reference to something else. It doesn't really add anything to the plot.

This is actually a homage to the song WHITE HORSE by Laid back. I don't know if that song was played in Twin Peaks, but I do know that the word WHITE HORSE was in reference to Heroine, to which Kimmy's dad was high on, and the song also says White Pony in reference to Cocaine. I remember this song in the 80's and Kimmy was stuck in that time slot which makes sense with the horse and her dad.

  • interesting, I knew the herion reference but not the song reference

  • Good catch. Heroin is often referred to as "H" or "Horse". Apr 14 '15 at 11:38
