Episode Quotes
Ruby: I cannot believe you put me on the early shift.
Granny: Not my fault you stayed out all night. When I put over easy on the menu, I was talking about the eggs!

Regina: I don't like surprises, Sheriff. I find them threatening. And do you know what happens when I feel threatened? Bad things.

Regina: That's okay. I know I'm not the greatest cook... unless it involves apples.

Mary Margaret: How do you do it?
Gold: Do what?
Mary Margaret: Live with yourself, knowing all the bad things you've done.
Gold: Well, you tell yourself you did the right thing. And if you say it often enough, one day you might actually believe it.

Cultural References
Owen Flynn: Green and red, like Luke and Darth's lightsabers.
