Episode Quotes
Jiminy Cricket: Who wants to go next?
Sneezy: Uh, you brought bales of straw into the house, even though you know that I'm... achoo! allergic.
Snow: You are allergic to everything!
Happy: You broke my mug!
Snow: You're lucky it wasn't that mug you call a face!
Happy: You are the worst, most nasty, horrible...
Grumpy: Enough. Look what you're doing to Happy.

Henry: You think my book is real?
August: As real as I am.
Henry: How do you know?
August: Let's just say that I'm a believer.

James: Keep your hands where I can see 'em. (sees that he's naked) Uh, on second thought, don't.

Regina: You're very sweet, David, but you're also wrong. Evil doesn't always look evil. Sometimes it's staring right at us... and we don't even realize it.

Snow: I assume you’re the man Rumpelstiltskin helped me forget. What’s your name, again?
James: It’s me, Charming.
Snow: “Charming”? I’m beginning to see why I drank that potion.

Jiminy Cricket: You must be James.
James: You can talk?
Jiminy Cricket: Yeah, and you can listen. Name's Jiminy.

Grumpy: Let’s show that king what Snow White and the Seven Dwarves can really do!
