Episode Quotes
Henry: So what's on the agenda for Operation Scorpion?
David: What's Operation Scorpion?
Henry: The code name for our mission to find Emma and Snow. Do you prefer Viper? That was my first choice.
David: Henry, we need to talk.
Henry: Yeah, I thought Scorpion was better.

Emma: What the hell is that?
Lancelot: That is chimera. An acquired taste, but all our hunting party could bring back. One part lion, one part serpent. One part goat.
Emma: Like turducken?

King George: Family is everything, my dear. Losing all hope of having one—there is no greater misery.

Emma: Where's my gun? I want it back.
Mulan: Is it magic?
Emma: Depends on who's pulling the trigger.

Mulan: Have you ever seen an ogre?
Emma: I'm pretty sure I've dated a few.

Ruth: I want you to have it. That last sip of water, I want you to drink it.
Snow: No, I couldn't.
Ruth: That water can lift your curse, allow you and my son to have a child.
Snow: But you'll die. I won't let you give your life for this.
Ruth: That's what parents do. They put their children first. Someday you will understand.

David: So, what do you say? Are you with me?
Henry: Can you teach me how to fight a dragon?
David: We'll work our way up to it.
