Episode Quotes
Mary-Margaret: Shouldn't we talk about... it first?
Emma: What?
Mary-Margaret: Us? Your life? Everything?
Emma: Can we do "everything" maybe later. Like, with a glass of wine and several bottles.

Archie: Dr. Whale's whipped everyone into a frenzy. They're gong to Regina's house. They're going to kill her.
Leroy: Great, let's watch.

Regina: I assume this is your doing.
Gold: Most things are.

Mary-Margaret: And we talked about things we probably shouldn't even have talked about—one night stands and the like.
David: One-night stands?
Mary-Margaret: Whale.
David: Whale?
Mary-Margaret: We were cursed. That's neither here nor there.

Mary-Margaret: If we hadn't sent you away, you would have been cursed, too.
Emma: But we would've been together. Which curse is worse?
