Episode Quotes
Regina: Greg Mendell said something funny to me. He said I'm a villain, and that villains don't get happy endings. You believe that?
Hook: I hope not. Or we've wasted our lives.

(to Emma)
Gold: Neverland is a place where imagination runs wild, and sadly... yours doesn't.

Hook: What are you doing?
Emma: Getting ready for a fight.
Hook: Well, I've never known you to need to get ready for a fight. I thought it was always a natural state.

Phillip: You were gravely injured when we found you. Were you hit by some kind of arrow?
Neal: Forty-five caliber arrow.

David: I will not be capsized by fish!

Mulan: I'm in a story?
Neal: Yeah, they made a movie about you. It's actually pretty good.
Mulan: What's a movie?

(questioning a mermaid)
Mary Margaret: Threatening her isn't the way to motivate her.
Regina: Well, I'm all out of fish food.

Robin Hood: The name's Robin.
Neal: No way. Robin Hood.
Robin Hood: I'd bow but this quiver's rather tight.

Mary Margaret: Undo your spell! Bring back the mermaid!
Regina: And what, you'll win her over with your rainbow kisses and unicorn stickers?!?

Emma: I know there's a lot of history here and a lot of hate.
Hook: Actually, I quite fancy you from time to time when you're not yelling at me.

Episode References
Robin Hood's comments about owing Rumplestiltskin a debt go back to the second season episode "Lacey" when he stole the Dark One's wand and used it to cure his wife, Marian.
