Episode Quotes
Emma: You might want to ease up or that Brillo pad's going to press charges.
Mary Margaret: The dishes were just piling up.
Emma: This have anything to do with David stopping by? I saw him sulking as I pulled up.
Mary Margaret: We just... um... he just...
Emma: Yeah, I know what you both "just."

James: I don't have a choice, do I?
Rumplestiltskin: Oh, everyone has a choice, deary. Just make sure it's the right one.

Mary Margaret: You ever walk into a situation where you know exactly what's going to happen: And then you go into it anyway... and then when what you're afraid of happens, you kick yourself, because you should have known better. But that's just who you are, so you keep punishing yourself.
Dr. Whale: No.
Mary Margaret: How do you do that?
Dr. Whale: By never doing what's expected. It keeps life interesting.
