- Mr. Eddy: [to a tailgater after running him off the road] Six fuckin' car lengths! That's a hundred and six fuckin' feet, mister! If I had to stop suddenly, you woulda hit me!

Mystery Man: We've met before, haven't we. Fred Madison: I don't think so. Where was it you think we met? Mystery Man: At your house. Don't you remember? Fred Madison: No. No, I don't. Are you sure? Mystery Man: Of course. As a matter of fact, I'm there right now. Fred Madison: What do you mean? You're where right now? Mystery Man: At your house. Fred Madison: That's fucking crazy, man. Mystery Man: Call me. Dial your number. Go ahead.
[repeated line] Mystery Man: We've met before, haven't we?
Ed: You're a musician? Fred Madison: Yeah. Al: What's your axe? Fred Madison: Tenor. Tenor saxophone. Do you... Al: [shakes his head and point at his ear] Tone deaf.
Ed: Do you own a video camera? Renee Madison: No. Fred hates them. Fred Madison: I like to remember things my own way. Ed: What do you mean by that? Fred Madison: How I remembered them. Not necessarily the way they happened.
- The interior shots were filmed at the Amargosa Hotel in Death Valley, which is said to be haunted.
The house that Fred Madison lives in, along with most of the furniture in it, belongs to, and was designed by David Lynch.
Fred's phone number ends in the digits 666. This is revealed when he dials it at the prompting of the mystery man.
Some scenes that were filmed but edited from the final version: - more conversation between Fred/Renee and the police officers - a scene where an M.E. brings two girls to the autopsy of Renee's corpse, and chats with them about the murder - more prison scenes - a scene in which Pete stands in front of his parents, but they are unable to see him - a scene in which Pete cannot be seen by Sheila, his girlfriend.
After Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert gave the film a negative review on their show, David Lynch issued a new poster calling the thumbs-down verdict "two more reasons to see Lost Highway." Asked for his opinion, Gene Siskel said, "I found it petty."
