Episode Quotes
Regina: I will not listen to child-care lectures from a man who put his daughter in a box and shipped her to Maine.

David: Well, I'm the closest thing left to a sheriff here so I can just throw you in a cell until you figure out a way.
Jefferson: Then all we'll do is both sit, stuck... two lives in our heads, cursed worse than ever. Two lives forever at odds. Double the pain. Double the suffering.

David: Even bad memories are part of us. David, Storybrooke David was... is... weak, confused... and he hurt the woman I love. I wouldn't give up being Charming just to be him. But you know what? I wouldn't make the other trade either, because that David reminds me not only of whom I lost... but of who I want to be. My weaknesses and my strengths. David and the prince. I am both. Just like you. You are both. The town is both. We are both. Stay here and every choice is open to you. Live in the woods if you want. Hell, life in a shoe if you want. Or eat frozen burritos and write software. Let's open Granny's and the school and get back to work. I will protect you. She won't be able to hurt any of us, not as long as I'm alive. Not as long as we all come together... as we did before. As we shall do again.
