Episode Quotes
Belle: You don't need power, Rumple. You need courage... to let me in.

Killian Jones: A man unwilling to fight for what he wants deserves what he gets.

Killian Jones: What is it you want to know?
Rumplestiltskin: How's Milah, of course.
Killian Jones: Who?
Rumplestiltskin: Only to happy to, uh, dig out the memory, but... it gets really messy.

David: Do you remember turning a butcher into a pig?
Gold: Can't say that I do. Why?
David: Well, he does. And apparently, it was his father. I'm beginning to understand why no one wants to help you.

Gold: About you and Mary Margaret. How... how does that work?
David: Are you asking dating advice?
Gold: Of course not, no.

Killian Jones: You told me you'd something important you needed to show me. Sparkly dirt. Wonderful.
