|Did I hear that right?|
Prince Charming: Red, look out! We need to move. They found us.
Red: Go. I'll take care of them.
Prince Charming: Red, I'm not leaving you.
Red: Find Snow. That's all that matters. Find her!
Prince Charming: What are you gonna do?
Red: I'm giving you a head start.
King George's men: Yah! Yah! Yah!
Emma Swan: Please turn to the right.
Mary Margaret Blanchard: Emma, this is a mistake. I didn't kill Kathryn.
Emma: Of course you didn't. But while I am your friend, I am also the sheriff, and I have to go where the evidence leads.
Mary Margaret: Which points to me? Emma, yesterday it was David. There's something not right here.
Emma: I know, but your fingerprints were on that box, and his are not... so now we have to deal with... this.
Mary Margaret: Evidence that says I cut out Kathryn's heart and buried it in the woods? This is insane.
Emma: If I don't book you, with all this evidence, it's gonna look like favoritism. And then Regina will have cause and she will fire me, and then you know what she'll do? She'll bring in someone who will railroad you. So please, just try to be patient and trust me. We can't even move forward till we verify the heart belonged to Kathryn, and I am still waiting for the DNA test results. But in the meantime, you need to bear with me. I have to ask you a few questions.
Mary Margaret: This is crazy. I would never hurt anyone.
Grumpy: Snow? What are you... what are you doing?
Snow White: Getting rid of the vermin in this house. (trying to kill bird) Yah! (it flies away) Oh. What do you want?
Grumpy: It's dinnertime.
Snow White : I'm not hungry.
Grumpy: Come on. We made something extra special tonight.
Happy: She's out of control.
Snow White: Somebody die?
Jiminy Cricket: Snow, why don't you have a seat?
Snow White: Oh!
Snow White: Why is there a dirty cricket in here!
Jiminy: Uhh! Uh, my name is Jiminy, and your friends have asked me to be here tonight. They're concerned about you and they have something they'd like to say. Grumpy, why don't you start?
Grumpy: Snow White, you've changed. You've become angry, irritable, and downright mean.
Snow White: Changed? And who are you to tell me I've changed?
Jiminy: Snow, please, these are your friends, and we're all here because we... we care about you. Who wants to go next?
Sneezy: Uh... You brought bales of... straw into the house last night even though you know that I'm a... Ah... Ah ... ( sneezes) Allergic.
Snow White: You are allergic to everything.
Happy: You broke my mug!
Snow White: You're lucky it wasn't that mug you call a face!
Happy: You are the worst, most nasty, horrible...
Grumpy: Enough! Look what you're doing to Happy. That potion you took... the one that erased the Prince from your mind... you haven't been the same since you drank it.
Snow White: That helped me forget whatever or whomever I needed to forget, and I am clearly better off for it. That potion was the solution, not the problem. The problem is that I'm living here, in a house full of dwarves instead of in my palace, with my father, as a princess, but I can't do that anymore, can I? Because he was murdered, murdered by the same woman who sent a huntsman to kill me!
Jiminy: Snow, your anger towards the Queen is understandable. It's just not fair to take it out on your friends.
Snow White: You're right. I should be taking it out on her.
Jiminy: Oh, wait. Revenge is not the answer. No, it's gonna change you. It'll turn you into something darker than you can imagine. You don't want to go there. (Snow White places a glass jar over Jiminy to silence him.)
Snow White: Good news, fellas. You can quit your complaining because I’m leaving. I have more important things to do.
Jiminy: Wait. Don’t go.
Grumpy: Snow. Wait. Where are you going? (Snow White picks up an axe.)
Snow White: To kill the Queen.
Regina: Hello Miss Blanchard.
Mary Margaret: (to Emma) What is she doing here?
Emma: She asked to be here as a third party to make sure that I stay impartial. It can only help you. (Emma and Mary Margaret sit down.)
Mary Margaret: I have nothing to hide. Ask me anything.
Emma: (switches on the tape recorder) The heart was found buried near the old Troll Bridge. It had been cut out by what appears to be a hunting knife. Have you ever been to that bridge before?
Mary Margaret: Yes, many times. It’s where David and I liked to meet.
Emma: (standing up) Mr. Nolan?
Mary Margaret: Yes.
Emma: And you met there for what purpose? (Emma opens a cabinet. Wearing examination gloves she takes out the jewelry box.)
Mary Margaret: We were having an affair. I’m not proud of what happened and I’m sorry. But that doesn’t change the fact that I did not kill Kathryn.
Emma: (places the jewelry box in front of Mary Margaret) Have you ever seen this before?
Mary Margaret: Yes, that’s my jewelry box.
Emma: That’s where we found the heart in.
Mary Margaret: Don’t you see what’s happening here. Someone stole that box and put the heart in it. I didn’t have anything to do with it. I’m innocent.
Regina: (takes Mary Margaret ’s hand) Miss Blanchard, it’s okay. I know what you’re going through. I know what it’s like to lose someone you love. To be publicly humiliated. It put me in a very dark place. Changed me. I can only imagine what losing David Nolan did to you.
Mary Margaret: (withdraws her hand) But, I haven’t changed. I’m still the same person I’ve always been - a good person. I did not do this.
Emma: (to Regina) Can I speak to you in the hallway, please? (Both, Emma and Regina exit the room.) I told you to leave the questioning to me.
Regina: How do you know she didn’t do it? If that box was stolen from her as she claims, don’t you think there’d be signs of a break in? Well, you’re her roommate. Tell me, has there been a break in? She’s a woman who’s had her heart broken. And that (pauses) that can make you do unspeakable things.
Snow White: It’ll heal. Eventually.
Black Knight: What do you want?
Snow White: Information. Where’s the Queen?
Black Knight: Why would I tell you?
Snow White: (crouches down beside him) Do you know what a diamond is? It’s the strongest substance known to man or beast. Beautiful. Precious. Nearly impervious to destruction. Nearly. (showing him her axe) This is an axe from the dwarves’ mines|. It’s a special blade. It can, believe it, or not, actually cut a diamond. Imagine what it can do to human flesh. (The knight tries to crawl away) Soft, pliable, tender flesh. (Raising the axe Snow White intends to hit him again.)
Black Knight: (promptly speaking) She’s at her castle. But, only for the night. In the morning she leaves for the summer palace. Please! That’s all I know.
Snow White: That summer palace was build for my mother. (She knocks him out.)
Grumpy: What do you think you’re doing?
Snow White: I already told you. I’m going to kill the Queen.
Grumpy: By stealing the armor of a knight?
Snow White: Whatever I have to do to get into that castle. So, get out of my way. I have to get there before she departs.
Grumpy: Have you lost your mind? You really think this disguise is going to fool anybody?
Snow White: I’m getting in there. (She walks to the horse)
Grumpy: Listen to yourself. All you care about is revenge. You can’t even see reality anymore.
Snow White: What I don’t need, is to be lectured by a dwarf with a bad attitude.
Grumpy: I didn’t come here to lecture you. I came here to help you.
Snow White: Help me? How?
Grumpy: By taking you back to Rumplestiltskin. He’s the one who gave you the potion in the first place – the one that took away all your memories of your Prince. If anyone can give them back to you, it’s him.
Snow White: I don’t want my memories back. That’s why I took the potion.
Grumpy: And it changed you. Maybe he can at least bring you back to the person you used to be. He’s the most powerful man in the world. He can do anything.
Snow White: Anything?
Emma: Henry. What are you doing here? Why aren’t you in school?
Henry: We have to help Miss Blanchard.
Emma: I am helping her. That’s why I’m searching the apartment. But you got to go home.
Henry: Not going to happen.
Emma: Just stay out of the way.
Henry: So, what are we looking for.
Emma: I’m trying to see, if, maybe, someone broke in. (enters the bedroom) Looking for busted door jambs, (examines the window) broken glass, muddy footprints. That kind of thing.
Henry: So, you think someone’s setting her up?
Emma: It’s the only thing that makes sense. The only problem is, nobody’s got a motive.
Henry: My mom does.
Henry: She hates Snow White. (shrugs) Hey, you wanted a motive.
Emma: Well, I don’t think "She hates Snow White." will hold up in a court, Henry. (Emma takes a closer look at a picture standing on her desk. Tired Emma lies down on the bed. Suddenly, a rumbling noise can be heard. Searching for the source of the noise Emma removes the cover of a vent.)
Henry: Did you find something?
(Examining the vent more closely Emma finds an object wrapped in a cloth. Unwrapping it Emma reveals a small hunting knife.)
August: I don’t think that hot chocolate it’s gonna drink itself. You’re upset about your teacher, aren’t you?
Henry: She didn’t do it. Why can’t anyone see that?
August: Because most people just see what’s right in front of them. I don’t think you gonna find the answers you want at the bottom of that mug.
Henry: Then where?
August: That book in your bag. You know, I’m a writer. So, I’m partial to finding my answers in the literary form.
Henry: It’s just a book.
August: Is it?
August: I think, we both know that’s not the case. (to Ruby) Can I have a water, please? (Ruby serves him a glass of water.)
Henry: (curious) What do you know about it?
August: I know it’s a book of stories.
Henry: Aren’t all books?
August: Stories that really happened.
Henry: (leans closer) You think my book is real?
August: As real as I am.
Henry: How do you know?
August: Let’s just say that I’m a believer. And I wanna help others see the light. That, my friend, is why I’m here.
Henry: But I already believe.
August: Oh, I’m not here for you, buddy. I’m here for Emma.
Henry: So, you wanna get her to believe? Why don’t you just tell her.
August: There are some people - like you and me - we can go on faith. But others - like Emma - they need proof.
Henry: Last time I tried to find proof I got trapped in a sinkhole.
August: There are less dangerous places to look. (August indicates his book to the boy. Then, he gets up and prepares to leave, patting Henry on the shoulder. Henry opens the book and starts to read.)
Prince Charming: Put your hands where I can see them. (The knight turns around to face him) Uh, on second thought, don’t. (He hands the knight a blanket) Who did this?
Black Knight: (wraps himself in the blanket) She’s crazy. She had a pick axe. She threatened to skin me.
Prince Charming: The Evil Queen?
Black Knight: No. Snow White.
Prince Charming: (with his blade he points at the knight’s throat.) What?
Black Knight: (raising his hands in a conciliating manner) She said she wanted to kill the Queen. I’ve never seen someone so bloodthirsty.
Prince Charming: No. Snow’s not bloodthirsty. She’s not a killer. I know her.
Black Knight: Maybe you don’t.
David: Hey. Can I talk to you?
Regina: Of course.
David: These accusations against Mary Margaret - they’ve been gnawing away at me. She didn’t do this. (David takes a seat)
Regina: I understand what you’re going through. It’s painful when someone we care about betrays us.
David: She’s a good person. I know her.
Regina: Maybe, you don’t. Maybe, you just want to. Everyone has a dark side, David.
David: Yeah, sure, but having a dark side and doing something so evil - that’s a different thing. That’s not what she is.
Regina: Perhaps. I always believe that evil isn’t born. It’s made.
David: All due respect, Regina, I don’t think you know much about evil. (standing up)
Regina: Well, if she didn’t do it, then who did?
David: I don’t know. That’s what I’ve been trying to figure out. But those blackouts I’ve been having they’ve made everything so hazy.
Regina: (standing up) Please tell me, you’re not accusing yourself.
David: You know, maybe if I could clear up my missing time, I could prove Mary Margaret’s innocence.
Regina: You’re very sweet, David. But you’re also wrong. Evil doesn’t always look evil. Sometimes it’s starring right at us and we don’t even realize it.
Mary Margaret: (shocked) The heating vent? Emma, I don’t even know where the heating vent in my bedroom is.
Emma: Someone did and they put a hunting knife in there. I checked for signs of a break in, but there weren’t any.
Mary Margaret: You don’t believe me.
Emma: Of course I do. But, what I think doesn't matter. Evidence is piling up by the hour.
Mary Margaret: Okay, what are you saying?
Emma: I’m saying you should think about hiring a lawyer.
Mr. Gold: An excellent idea. (As she turns around Emma notices Mr. Gold standing in the doorway.)
Emma: Mr. Gold. What are you doing here?
Mr. Gold: (enters) Offering my legal services.
Emma: You’re a lawyer?
Mr. Gold: Ever wondered, why I’m so adept at contracts? I’ve been following the details of your case, Miss Blanchard. And I think you’d be well advised to bring me on as your counsel.
Mary Margaret: Well, because the sheriff had me arrested for nearly beating a man to death and managed to persuade the judge to drop the charges.
Emma: Asserting your influence isn’t what’s needed here. We need to find the truth.
Mr. Gold: Asserting influence may be exactly what’s needed here.
Emma: What’s needed here, is me to do my job.
Mr. Gold: Well, no one’s stopping you. I’m only here to help.
Mary Margaret: Enough. Please go.
Emma: You heard her.
Mary Margaret: No, I was talking to you. Oh, Emma. He’s right. I need help. And you need to do your job or else I’m screwed. So, just please do your job the best you can and you’ll prove me innocent. Until you do I need some practical help.
Mr. Gold: This is in Miss Blanchard’s best interests.
Emma: Good luck, Mary Margaret. I hope your best interests are what he’s looking out for. (exits the room. Mr. Gold smiles.)
Mary Margaret: I can’t pay you.
Mr. Gold: I didn’t ask for money.
Mary Margaret: Then why are you doing this?
Mr. Gold: Let’s just say, I’m invested in your future.
Grumpy: The potion you gave Snow. It changed her. She’s not the same.
Rumplestiltskin: Well, of course it changed her. It took away her love. Left a big hole in her heart. (Snow White wanders around the room.) There’s no cure for what she’s got. The person she was, there’s no way to bring her back. (Rumplestiltskin opens a cupboard with various labeled potions stored inside.) No potion can bring back true love. (The holding area labeled with a heart is empty.) Love is the most powerful magic of all. The only magic I haven’t been able to bottle. If you can bottle love, you can do anything. (turns around and faces Snow White) But you don’t care about that, do you? Now, what is it you really want?
Snow White: I want your help. To kill the Queen.
Rumplestiltskin: Now we’re talking, dearie.
Grumpy: Snow, don’t! (Rumplestiltskin provides a bow with a new string.)
Snow White: Now, what is this?
Rumplestiltskin: This is how you kill the Queen.
Snow White: How will that help me getting into the castle?
Rumplstiltskin: No, no, no. That’s impossible. You’ll have to kill her when she’s on the move. When she’s on her way to the summer palace. (Using magic he produces a map and then indicates a location to Snow White) Fire the arrow from this spot here and you’ll be hidden from sight. An arrow fired from this bow will get you exactly what you need. It always finds it target.
Grumpy: (to Snow White) I can’t stand by. If you take that weapon, you do it alone.
Snow White: (takes bow and arrow) That was always my plan. (Rumplestiltskin giggles. Snow White faces him.) So, what do I have to do in return?
Rumplestiltskin: Do? You don’t have to do anything, dearie.
Snow White: (doubtful) Everything comes with a price with you. Last time you took a strand of my hair. What’s in it for you this time?
Rumplestiltskin: Let’s just say, I’m invested in your future.
Archie Hopper: (opens the door) David. What can I do for you?
David: Dr. Hopper, I need your help.
Archie Hopper: (stepping aside so that David can enter the room) Okay, what… what is it?
David: I’ve been having these blackouts and I need to remember what happened during them.
Archie Hopper: Why?
David: I think I might know something that can help Mary Margaret. (Archie Hopper closes the door)
Prince Charming: Rumplestiltskin. Show yourself.
Rumplestiltskin: (appears behind him) Still dressing like a prince I see. Even though you ran away from the life I gave you. How’s that for gratitude?
Prince Charming: You gave me a prison sentence.
Rumplestiltskin: Yeah, one that you’ve now skirted. Careful dearie, King George is a vengeful man.
Prince Charming: I’m here about Snow. Rumor has it, she’s after the Queen and she came to you for help.
Rumplestiltskin: Yes, indeed. (As Prince Charming draws his sword, Rumplestiltskin quickly jumps out of reach.) What did I do to her? You mean, what did you do to her. You caused her pain. Without that pain she would never have drank my potion to forget about you. That’s what changed her.
Prince Charming: Undo the potion. All magic can be broken.
Rumplestiltskin: Oh, yes. With true love.
Prince Charming: So, that’s it then? True love’s kiss will awaken her?
Rumplestiltskin: Most certainly, but it’s gonna be hard to kiss her, when you don’t know where she is. (laughs)
Prince Charming: (sheaths his sword) Name your price.
Rumplestiltskin: (takes a moment to consider the offer) How about your cloak?
Prince Charming: (surprised) My cloak? Why would you want my cloak?
Rumplestiltskin: It’s drafty in here. (giggles)
Prince Charming: (takes off his cloak) Where is she?
Rumplestiltskin: On her way to the Queen’s highway. (Once again he magically produces the map he’d showed Snow earlier.) This is the route she’s taking. (hands Charming the map) But you’d better be quick, because, if she kills the Queen, she becomes as evil as the woman whose life she takes.
Prince Charming: She could never become that evil. (Prince Charming hurriedly leaves the castle.)
Rumplestiltskin: Evil isn’t born, dearie. It’s made. If Snow starts down that road, you’ll never get her back.
Snow White: Get your hands off me!
Prince Charming: Snow!
Snow White: (fighting him) Who are you? What are you doing?
Prince Charming: Helping you to remember. (He kisses Snow) I told you I will always find you. (smiles, Snow White knocks him out.)
Henry: (pleased) I have proof. (Henry shows Emma a ring of several skeleton keys.) This is how my mom got in your apartment. This is how she framed Miss Blanchard.
Emma: Did you steal these from her office? (Emma takes the keys)
Henry: Yeah, the book said, they could open any door.
Emma: (examines the keys) There’s no way they’ll even fit in the lock.
Henry: We have to try. (He walks up to the door. Taking one key Henry unsuccessfully tries to open the door. Henry tries out a second key. Again he’s unable to open the apartment’s door.)
Emma: (watches Henry) See, what did I tell you? Come on, Henry, I know you wanna think the answer to everything is in Operation Cobra.
Henry: It is.
Emma: (interrupting) But sometimes the real world needs to come first. (takes out her personal key to open the door)
Henry: Just try one more. Please.
Emma: (sighs) Okay. One more, but then we’re done.
Henry: You do it. (Carefully Henry picks a key. The key’s bow is decorated with an apple-shaped ornament) This one.
Emma: Okay. (Emma successfully unlocks the door)
Henry: Do you believe now?
Prince Charming: Snow. (tries to break free)
Snow White: I assume you are the man Rumplestiltskin helped me forget. What’s your name again?
Prince Charming: It’s me. Charming.
Snow White: Charming? Beginning to see why I drank that potion.
Prince Charming: This doesn’t make any sense. (trying harder to break free) True love’s kiss should’ve restored your memories.
Snow White: It’s not true love because I don’t love you.
Prince Charming: Yes, you do. You just don’t remember. You love me and I love you.
Snow White: (picks up her bundle and the bow) Words. Words. Words. That’s all that love is. And unfortunately for you, words don’t mean anything to me. You know what does mean something to me? Taking action. And that’s exactly what I’m going to do. (walks away)
Prince Charming: Snow. Snow! (Snow White stops and faces him) Listen to me. You can’t do this. It’s not who you wanna be. You can’t kill her.
Snow White: Really? Watch me. (exits)
Prince Charming: Don’t do it, Snow. Snow!
Archie Hopper: David, listen very closely. Can you hear me?
Archie Hopper: Good. Okay. I want you to go back in your memory. Back to the last time you and Kathryn spoke. The last thing you remember. Tell me, where are you?
David: In my bedroom.
Archie Hopper: When?
David: The night she left]].
Archie Hopper: And what were you doing?
David: I called her on her cell.
Archie Hopper: And what did you talk about?
David: She said she’d realized she needed to start a new life. Without me. She thought Mary Margaret and I should be together.
Archie Hopper: And how did that conversation end?
David: She said she was hurt but she wanted me to be happy.
Archie Hopper: And do you remember anything after that?
David: Yes, I saw Mary Margaret in the woods.
Archie Hopper: And what was she doing there?
(David remembers the previous scenes in fragments. He remembers that Snow White knocked Prince Charming out and tied him to a tree.)
Prince Charming: You can’t kill her.
Snow White: Really? Watch me.
Prince Charming: You can’t kill her. Don’t do it.
Archie Hopper: David! David! (Shocked David opens his eyes)
David: What happened?
Archie Hopper: I had to wake you up. You went too deep into hypnosis. Something was disturbing you. What did you see?
David: It was…
Archie Hopper: What? Tell me, David. I can help you. (David hurriedly gets up and heads for the door. Archie Hopper stops him.) David. David, tell me. What did you see? I can help you.
David: You can’t. (exits)
Archie Hopper: David!
Prince Charming: (frustrated he tries to shoo the cricket away) Go on. Get out of here!
Jiminy Cricket: You must be James.
Prince Charming: (surprised) You can talk?
Jiminy Cricket: Yeah, and you can listen. Name is Jiminy. When Snow began to act differently, her friends, the dwarves, asked me to intervene. (Jiminy lights himself on Charming’s arm.) But I’m… I’m afraid I wasn’t much help.
Prince Charming: I didn’t do any better. Can you get me out of here? I have to stop her.
Jiminy Cricket: Well, I’ll try. (Jiminy gnaws on the ropes.) What’s your plan?
Prince Charming: (sighs) I don’t know. I tried everything to make her remember who I am, but nothing worked.
Jiminy Cricket: Give that a try. (Pulling on the ropes once again Prince Charming frees himself. Hovering a moment longer Jiminy faces Prince Charming) Hm, it sounds like you’re approaching this the wrong way. How can she remember who you are, when she’s lost sight of who she is.
Black Knight: Clear the road. Bow your head before the Queen.
(In the woods above them Snow White carefully sneaks closer to the specified position. Then Snow bends the bow and looses an arrow as the Evil Queen passes the road beneath. She’s unaware that Prince Charming jumps in the way. Instead of the Evil Queen the arrow hits Prince Charming’s shoulder.)
Snow White: (shocked) What do you think you’re doing? Why would you do this?
Prince Charming: Well, because (groans) you said you appreciate action more than words. So now, you gonna get both. I love you, Snow.
Snow White: But I don’t love you. I don’t even remember you.
Prince Charming: I don’t care. (groans) The only thing I care about is that you don’t forget who you really are. I would rather die than let you fill your heart with darkness.
Snow White: You would really die for me?
Prince Charming: Does it look like I’m making this up?
Snow White: No one has ever done anything like this for me before. No one has ever been willing to die for me.
Prince Charming: No one you can remember. (Prince Charming doubles over in pain. Snow White leans closer and kisses him.)
Snow White: Charming! (smiles)
Prince Charming: (smiles) Yes, it’s me. (They kiss again. Horses approach them. Looking around Prince Charming recognizes King George’s knights.) King George’s army. (pulls Snow’s hood up. The knights approach them and separate Snow and Prince Charming seizing both of them by the arms.)
Snow White: No.
Knight 1: Prince James. (pulls the arrow out of Prince Charming’s shoulder) Leave the girl. We have who we came for. (The knights drop Snow White to the ground.)
Prince Charming: No! (The knights drag him with them)
Snow White: James! (Using the hilt of his sword one knight knocks Snow White out. The other knights shove Prince Charming in a carriage. Intending to kill Snow the knight raises his sword.)
Prince Charming: No!
Knight 1: (addressing Snow White’s guard) Enough!
Knight 2: Hyah. (The carriage begins to move. Giving Snow one last look her guard decides to follow his companions)
Prince Charming: Snow! Snow!
Snow White: James.
Prince Charming: Snow.
Snow White: I will find you. I will always find you.
David: Mary Margaret.
Mary Margaret: (smiles) David.
David: Emma said we could have a few minutes alone. I wanted to tell you, that Dr. Hopper helped me remember what happened during my blackouts.
Mary Margaret: And?
David: Um, I only… got pieces of the memory. We were in the woods (Mary Margaret nods) and I kept saying 'don’t do it‘.
Mary Margaret: Don’t do what?
David: Don’t kill her. That’s what I kept saying.
Mary Margaret: Kathryn. You think you remember wanting to kill Kathryn.
David: Can you explain why I have that memory?
Mary Margaret: (shocked) David? Are you asking me, if I had something to do with Kathryn’s murder?
David: The Sheriff found a heart in our spot. It was in your jewelry box. The weapon was found in your apartment. I have these… these memories. So, yes, I’m asking.
Mary Margaret: When you phone records came back, when I found you wandering in the woods, when everyone thought you killed Kathryn, I stood by you. (crying) I never once doubted you. And now, that everything is pointing to me, you actually think I’m capable of that kind of evil? Get out! (crying she turns away. David nods and leaves the station)
Grumpy: What’s this?
Snow White: An apology. (Happy gives her a smile)
Grumpy: We don’t care about mugs.
Snow White: It’s the only thing I broke, I could replace. I’m sorry. All I can say is, I’m sorry.
Grumpy: (standing up) It’s you.
Snow White: It’s me. (Laughing the dwarves hug Snow White)
Happy: Welcome back. You can have your old room, if you like.
Snow White: Thank you. I can’t stay.
Grumpy: Where are you going?
Snow White: King George took James. I have to get him back.
Grumpy: No, Snow. You can’t do it.
Snow White: I can’t let the king just kill him. He came back for me. It doesn’t matter what happens to me now. I have to try.
Grumpy: That’s not what I meant. What I meant was, you can’t do it alone. (facing his brothers, the dwarves nod.) But, luckily, you won’t have to. (they fetch their axes) Let’s show that king what Snow White and seven dwarves can really do.
Emma: Hey. Breakfast. (hands Mary Margaret a coffee and a small bag)
Mary Margaret: Thanks.
Emma: I know Mr. Gold doesn’t want us to talk, but I thought, you should hear this from me. The test results came back on the heart and the DNA was a match for Kathryn. She is dead. I’m sorry - for a lot of things. But, now that we have proof of the death, we have enough evidence to move forward with a case against you. It’s going to happen. You know I do believe you, right? (Mary Margaret nods) All this evidence tells me one thing for certain. That you are being framed. And I think Regina is behind it.
Mary Margaret: Then why am I still in here? Why don’t you confront her?
Emma: Because belief is not proof.
Mary Margaret: But, you just said -
Emma: (interrupting) If I don’t do this right, things will end up worse for you. Every time I’ve gone up against Regina, she’s seen it coming, and I’ve lost.
Mary Margaret: So, what makes this time any different?
Emma: Because she doesn’t know I suspect anything.
Mary Margaret: Why would she do this to me?
Emma: I don’t know, but I’m going to find out. And I promise, I won’t stop until I expose what she’s up to.
Mary Margaret: And how are you going to do that? This is her town.
Emma: I’m working on it. I have faith in you. And now, I need you to have faith in me. Can you do that?
Mary Margaret: (nods) Of course. (Emma exits. Once again Mary Margaret looks thoughtfully at the key in her hand.)
Emma: Mr. Gold.
Mr. Gold: Just taking inventory. (sits down) What can I do for you, Miss Swan? Any developments in the case I should be aware of?
Emma: Yes. Regina set her up.
Mr. Gold: And this surprises you? Show me your evidence and we’ll get this over with immediately.
Emma: Yeah. That’s the thing. There isn’t any. Anything that’s court-worthy. But I know it now.
Mr. Gold: Look, who’s suddenly become a woman of faith. Why are you here, Miss Swan? To spin conspiracy theories?
Emma: I need help.
Mr. Gold: From me?
Emma: Every time I’ve gone up against Regina, I’ve lost. Except for once, when I became Sheriff. When you helped.
Mr. Gold: As I recall you don’t exactly approve of my methods.
Emma: I approve of your results. And this time I have something more important than a job. I need to save my friend.
Mr. Gold: And you’re willing to go as far as it takes? (picks up a magnifying glass)
Mr. Gold: (nods) Now, we’re talking. (smiles) Fear not, Miss Swan. Regina may be powerful, but something tells me, you’re more powerful than you know. (examines the Genie’s lamp closely)
