Episode Quotes
Leroy: Ding dong.
Granny: So she's really...?
Leroy: Oh, yeah, that witch is done. That's a good thing. Because if that Sleeping Beauty had been a monkey a day longer, she would've had a monkey baby. Wouldn't want to change those diapers.

Hook: So... any ideas how to go back?
Emma: How would I know how to get back to the future? Who do I look like--Marty McFly?
Hook: Marty McWho?
Emma: The kid with the lightning and the DeLorean and they went back in time and...
Hook: Is he some sort of wizard?
Emma: No, Marty McFly isn't a wizard.

Emma: That's Regina.
Hook: Not Regina, love. The Evil Queen.
Regina: You will help me.
Emma: She's even worse without the sensible pantsuits.

Emma: She's gonna remember a glimpse of a face thirty years from now?
Hook: The point is to minimize you making a lasting impression. Sadly, red leather jackets don't come into vogue here... ever.
Emma: Fine. Well, the only lasting impression I'm concerned right now is what this corset is making on my spleen.
Hook: Your discomfort is a cross I'm willing to bear.

Rumplestiltskin: I don't know who you are, dearie, but why don't you run off and let me enjoy my killing in peace?

Cultural References
Emma: You're not going to hold him out in front of the clock tower and present him like Lion King, are you?

At the beginning of The Lion King (1994), all of the animals gather to see their future king, Simba. The Lion King is a Disney animated movie, owned by the same company that produces Once Upon a Time.

Emma: Who do I look like, Marty McFly?

Marty McFly is the main teenage character in the Back to the Future movies. With some help from his friend, eccentric genius Doc Brown, he ends up traveling back to the 1950s in a souped-up DeLorean and has to return to his own time without altering history.

Emma: And I'm... Princess Leia.

In the Star Wars movie, Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan is one of the main characters in the first three movies (episodes IV, V, and VI). Her homeworld is wiped out by the Death Star and she is a leading member of the Rebellion.
