Dominant Extroverted Feeling [Fe]: David is fiercely protective of his loved ones. He cares about being helpful and doing the right thing. David wants to be of service to others. He’s warm, affirming, honorable, and supportive. David wants to do what is best for everyone, whether it’s the citizens of Storybrooke or his people in the Enchanted Forest. David is okay with fighting and killing if it’s for the greater good. The only way to stop the Evil Queen is to kill her! Think of all the damage she could inflict on more innocent people if we allow her to live! David hates to upset people and will typically lie to them to avoid hurting their feelings. He doesn’t want Kathryn to feel bad, so he lied about remembering their dog. The first time he leaves Kathryn, he tells Mary Margaret he did it because pretending would be the most hurtful thing he could do to her. She deserves to be with someone who doesn’t have to fake their affections. When he ends their relationship for the second time, David lies to her about why he’s leaving her to spare her the pain of knowing he fell for another woman. However, as Mary Margaret points out, his desire to not hurt anyone results in everyone getting hurt. He doesn’t tell Henry that Jefferson can’t help them because he doesn’t want to disappoint him. When David’s mother wants him to marry for a dowry that could save their farm, he refuses to do it because he wants to marry for love. However, when King George tells him he must marry to save the entire kingdom, David agrees because he can’t allow that many people to suffer – it’s selfish. It was one thing when it was just his family’s farm on the line, but he can’t stand idly by when he can do something to help such a large number of people. Not only is he willing to sacrifice his chance of ever finding true love – he even agrees to never see his own mother again in order to help his people. When David is ordered not to go into battle, he does so anyway because people are dying! David is usually good at sensing how those around him are feeling – even though she doesn’t say it, he knows Mary Margaret wants to be with him. He can feel it. He’s appalled when King George gives him a crown (a gift from King Midas) because it could “feed the kingdom for an entire winter” with it.
Auxiliary Introverted Sensing [Si]: After waking up from his coma, David decides he wants to leave his wife to be with Mary Margaret, and goes through with it, until Regina gives him false memories of his life with Kathryn. When he “remembers” her, he decides he must honor the commitment he made and go back to her. Even though he doesn’t feel the love he once supposedly had for her, he remembers feeling that way, and so he feels staying with her is the right thing to do. David believes that he can replicate past successes by using the same techniques. He used a bird to find Snow once, so he’ll just do that again. When Emma and Snow get stuck in another realm, he asks Mother Superior if he can use a tree to cross from Storybrooke to the Enchanted Forest, because that was how they got Emma to this world in the first place, so it could work again! In his quest to get them back, David goes to Mr. Gold and asks him for something like the ring he had given once given him to find Snow. David’s first response is rarely to come up with a new way of doing things – he trusts the methods that he knows have worked for him before. David believes he and Snow will always find each other – because they always have. Each time they’re separated is no different than the last. They always make it back to each other. David is certain that Snow will be in the Netherworld because she made it there once before, so if he goes there to find her, he knows she’ll be there again. Once the first curse is broken, David wants to return to the Enchanted Forest. He wants to go back home and carry a sword again! He longs for the way things used to be. Snow, on the other hand, is content to stay in Storybrooke because home is wherever her family is. It’s hard for David to come around where Regina is concerned because of everything she’s done in the past. While Snow and Emma are willing to start anew and want to give Regina the chance to redeem herself, David believes that she’ll revert to her old ways sooner or later because that’s who she is. She’s ruined their lives every chance she’s ever had, and that’s what she will continue to do! It’s hard for David to deny physical evidence and, instead of thinking of alternate possibilities (someone must’ve framed Mary Margaret for Kathryn’s murder), he begins to doubt her when confronted with what seemed like solid proof (“It was your jewelry box, your fingerprints, knife in your apartment”). David is old-fashioned and traditional and is comfortable with the old way of doing things (such as using torches). When the curse is broken and everybody tries to flee Storybrooke, David is able to keep them there by empathizing (Fe). He gets why people would choose to leave and just forget all of their unhappy memories – but your memories make you who you are! The good ones and the bad ones! For David, all of life’s moments are worth living. David tries to learn from his mistakes and use the knowledge he gains from his past experiences to make better decisions in the present. He made the mistake of failing to believe in Mary Margaret when everyone thought she was guilty of murder so he’s not going to do that again with Ruby. Instead, he stands by her and protects her. When Ruby sees Regina going into Archie’s office on the night he supposedly died, David believes that Regina is responsible. Ruby isn’t lying because he knows Ruby and she wouldn’t make something like that up, but all of his experiences with Regina have been negative, so Regina must be the one who’s lying.
Tertiary Extroverted Intuition [Ne]: Although it’s not his main approach, David can be good at connecting dots and is able to make the occasional intuitive leap. When he finds out from Red that Snow intended to stop his wedding, David realizes that King George must’ve intervened and caused her to change her mind somehow. When David brainstorms, it’s not just for fun – he wants to come up with ideas so he can use them to create plans to defeat whatever he finds himself up against. David tends to maintain an optimistic view of the future – he typically believes that things will work out favorably for himself and his loved ones. He volunteers to be put under a sleeping curse because he’s sure that Snow will make it back to wake him from it. Even though Mr. Gold cautions him by telling him he may never wake up, David has no doubt that Snow will break the curse. David has faith in the people he loves and believes in them no matter what.
Inferior Introverted Thinking [Ti]: Because David leads with his heart, it’s difficult for him to make logical, detached decisions. He always believes that he’ll be able to come up with a solution to whatever problems he and his loved ones face. If his original plan is foiled, David usually believes that he’ll be able to find another way to get the job done, though sometimes he has moments of doubt. When the hat is destroyed, he doesn’t know how he’ll be able to find another way to travel between worlds. In stressful situations, David can come to harsh conclusions (we must execute the Queen for the safety of our people!) He’s also able to deduce that Albert killed Billy in order to pin it on Ruby, knowing that David would come to her defense. He wanted to take power away from David by getting the town to turn against him for protecting Ruby. When David analyzes problems, he can struggle to come to the correct conclusion. When Mary Margaret is framed for Kathryn’s “murder,” he begins to question her innocence because all of the evidence pointed to her. He later does this again when Cora tries to frame Regina for Archie’s “murder.” He struggles to see beyond the alleged “facts” of a situation.
Enneagram: 1w2 2w1 6w5 So/Sx
Prince Charming: I say we fight!
Jiminy: Fighting is a bad idea. Giving into one’s dark side never accomplishes anything.
Prince Charming: Then how many wars has a clear conscience won? We need to take the Queen out before she can inflict her curse.
Doc: Can we even trust Rumplestiltskin?
Prince Charming: I’ve sent my men into the forest. The animals are abuzz with the Queen’s plan. This is going to happen unless we do something.
Snow: There’s no point. The future is written.
Prince Charming: No. I refuse to believe that. Good can’t just lose.
Snow: Maybe it can.
Prince Charming: No. No, not as long as we have each other. If you believe him about the curse, then you must believe him about our child. She will be the saviour.
David: I’m trying to remember this place. It’s like… It’s like I woke up in some strange land.
Mary Margaret: Is there anything coming back? What about when you’re with her? You remembered your dog.
David: Yeah, I lied.
Mary Margaret: You did?
David: She’s so loving and I didn’t want to disappoint her. But none of it feels right. You know, a dog named Ajax? Who would name their dog that? None of it makes sense. None of it… None of it feels real.
Ruth: He has a daughter. She’s ready for marriage. He thinks the two of you would make a great couple.
Prince Charming: Mother…
Ruth: I know, I know. I hate myself for even bringing it up.
Prince Charming: Let me guess – she has a dowry that will save the farm?
Ruth: We are running out of options.
Prince Charming: Mother, please. As poor as we are, love is one thing I can afford. I will find a way to save this farm, but I won’t do it by marrying for riches. When I marry, I want it to be because I choose to spend the rest of my life with someone I love.
Ruth: When are you going to learn? You can’t have everything.
[The dragon, who is still in the cave, roars. Flames are seen at the cave’s entrance. The knights are heard screaming.]
Prince Charming: They need our help.
[Prince Charming tries to run to the cave, but is held back by the two knights.]
Knight: We stay here. Our orders are clear.
Prince Charming: People are dying!
Prince Charming: Midas wants to unite the kingdoms. By marrying me to his daughter.
Prince Charming: It makes the grain merchant’s dowry look like sheep dung.
Ruth: No. You were right to turn down that offer, as you must this one, too. Every day you’ve been gone, has shown me it was shameful of me to ever encourage you otherwise. Your freedom to choose is more important than anything. I’ll give up the farm.
Prince Charming: No.
Ruth: They can’t force you.
Prince Charming: Yes, they can. Because of our ruse, Midas can never really know who I am, which…
Ruth: We can’t ever see each other again.
Prince Charming: Yes.
Ruth: Then don’t do it – run away.
Prince Charming: I can’t. They will kill you.
Ruth: I lose you either way. At least I’ll know you’ll be happy.
Prince Charming: I already accepted Midas’ offer. I didn’t come here for advice, mother. I came here to say goodbye. There was too much at stake. I couldn’t let the kingdom suffer on my account. I couldn’t let them hurt you. You know, you were right about one thing – can’t have everything.
David: So, I heard you resigned from the hospital. Was it me? Cause of what I told you, about how I felt about you… Oh, come on – don’t tell me it’s one sided.
Mary Margaret: You’re married. It should be no side.
David: Should be doesn’t matter. Whoever married Kathryn, it’s not me. I didn’t choose her. I’m choosing you. I know you feel it – I can tell.
Mary Margaret: Tell me you didn’t leave your wife because of me? I do not want to destroy your marriage.
David: You’re not. It’s me. I don’t want to hurt her either, but the most hurtful thing to Kathryn would be me pretending. she needs someone to feel about her the way I feel about you.
Mary Margaret: I’m really trying hard to stay away from you. To do the right thing.
David: Why is that the right thing?
Mary Margaret: Because you already have a life.
David: With someone I didn’t choose. The man who chose that life, whoever married Kathryn, is gone.
Mary Margaret: You really have to leave me alone.
David: You came.
Mary Margaret: You sound surprised. In fact, you almost sound a bit disappointed.
David: I remember.
Mary Margaret: Kathryn?
Mary Margaret: And you love her.
David: I don’t know. But I know I did. I remember how I felt and I think I have to honor that.
Mary Margaret: And everything that you said to me-
David: Is true. I do have feelings for you – intense feelings. Feelings I don’t quite understand.
Mary Margaret: And you’re going back to her.
David: It’s the right thing to do.
Mary Margaret: The right thing to do, was not to lead me on.
David: I know.
Mary Margaret: So, you’ve made your choice.
David: I’m sorry-
Mary Margaret: That’s okay. I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.
King George: Your absence is felt. It is, after all, in your honor. I thought this might rouse you from your chamber. [He pulls the lid off of the box, revealing a crown.]
Prince Charming: You could feed the kingdom for an entire winter with that crown.
King George: It’s a gift – from King Midas. For you to wear as you marry his daughter. Once that is done, our new prosperity will allow us to feed the kingdom for all eternity. Show some enthusiasm.
Prince Charming: Enthusiasm wasn’t part of the deal. The wedding’s in two days. I’ve honored your wishes.
King George: But I want your heart – not just your honour.
Prince Charming: My heart shall belong to Abigail.
King George: You think I’m a fool, don’t you? Your heart can’t belong to Abigail when it’s held by another woman. And don’t deny it. I know that look. Who is she?
Prince Charming: I met her on a journey. We haven’t seen each other since, but… She stayed with me.
King George: Forget her.
Prince Charming: You speak as if that’s so easy.
King George: Nobility was not meant to be easy. All this wealth, the power we hold over other men’s lives – do you think that comes at no cost?
Prince Charming: I asked for none of it.
King George: You were chosen to be my son. Plucked from poverty, wanting for nothing. Be thankful for that.
Prince Charming: It wasn’t charity, Father. It was the only way to save your kingdom.
Mary Margaret: No, David. It’s too painful.
David: It doesn’t have to be. We don’t know if Kathryn’s pregnant.
Mary Margaret: It doesn’t matter. You chose her.
David: I know, but I still have feelings for you.
Mary Margaret: You can’t have both.
David: But I do have both. I know… I know it doesn’t make sense, but it’s like I have these two conflicting lives. Memories of feelings for her and real feelings for you.
Mary Margaret: Who’s to say which is real?
David: I can’t get you out of my head.
Kathryn: David? David, come take a look. I found a whole bunch of great apartment options. I have no idea which neighbourhood to look at, but… Have you ever been to Boston?
David: No. No, I’ve never been.
Kathryn: Maybe we should ask the Sheriff, Emma. She’s from there. She could probably help-
David: Kathryn. I can’t go to Boston with you.
Kathryn: Can’t? Or won’t?
David: I’m sorry. I am so, so sorry. I… I don’t know what to say.
Kathryn: Try the truth. David, is there something going on that I don’t know about?
David: No. No, something happened. I don’t know what it is, but there is something that’s preventing me from connecting. And it’s not fair to you to let that screw up your life. You’re right – you need a fresh start. It’s just not with me.
Mary Margaret: Who did this?
David: I don’t know. I’m sorry. I don’t know how any of this happened.
Mary Margaret: You don’t know? Really?
David: Mary Margaret, I can’t control what other people do.
Mary Margaret: No, but you can control what you do. And you lied. And, now, everyone is calling me a tramp.
David: Who told her?
Mary Margaret: That is exactly the wrong question. The real question is, why didn’t you do what we discussed? Why didn’t you tell her?
David: I thought we could spare her feelings.
Mary Margaret: Right – you thought. Not we – you. And we discussed this.
David: I didn’t want anyone to get hurt.
Mary Margaret: Now everyone is hurt. We had an understanding. We had an agreement. But you not only lied to her, you lied to me.
Red: She’s gone. She never came back after she went to find you.
Prince Charming: Then I’ll find her. I will always find her. And I will convince her that we belong together. I will always fight for her, no matter what comes between us.
Red: It won’t be much of a fight.
Prince Charming: What are you talking about?
Red: Snow wants to be with you more than anything.
Prince Charming: Don’t mock me. Snow told me that we can’t be together because she doesn’t love me.
Red: She left here to break up your wedding, because she’s in love with you. Unless, something changed her mind along the way…
Prince Charming: Not something – someone.
Abigail: There is legend of a lake – Lake Nostos. Its waters are said to have magical properties, that can return to you something that was once lost.
Prince Charming: And, yet, you haven’t tried it?
Abigail: Of course I have. But the lake is guarded by a ghastly creature that drowns its victims. No one who’s ever faced it has lived to return.
Prince Charming: Don’t give up hope just yet. I will face this guardian and return with the water that will undo this wretched curse.
Abigail: None have succeeded.
Prince Charming: None have my fearless bravery.
Abigail: Or fearless disregard for their own safety.
Prince Charming: Either way, one of us should have our happiness.
Abigail: And if you die, neither of us will.
Prince Charming: No, not true. Don’t you understand? If I succeed, you will be reunited with Frederick and your misery ends. If I fail, the misery that ends will be mine.
Frederick: I am forever indebted to you.
Prince Charming: Well, pay me back by walking down the aisle with someone you truly belong with. And, perhaps, giving me a horse and supplies for a journey as well?
Abigail: Thank you. So much. Where will you go?
Prince Charming: To find Snow White.
Abigail: You are going after her.
Prince Charming: True love isn’t easy, but it must be fought for. Because once you find it, it can never be replaced.
Abigail: How will you know where to find her?
Prince Charming: Well, a bird helped me track her down once. Hopefully, it can again.
Snow: What do you think you’re doing? Why would you do this?
Prince Charming: Well, because… You said you appreciate… Action more than words. So, now… You’re going to get both. I love you, Snow.
Snow: But, I don’t love you. I don’t even remember you.
Prince Charming: Well, I don’t care. 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: You would really die for me?
Prince Charming: Does it look like I’m making this up?
Snow: No one’s ever done anything like this for me before. No one’s ever been willing to die for me.
Prince Charming: No one you can remember.
David: Mary Margaret.
Mary Margaret: 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: Uh, I… I only, um, got pieces of the memory, but… We were in the woods, 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 me wanting to kill Kathryn?
David: Can you explain why I have that memory?
Mary Margaret: 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. And I have these… These memories. So, yes, I’m asking.
Mary Margaret: When your phone records came back, when I found you wandering in the woods, when everyone thought you killed Kathryn, I stood by you. I never once doubted you. And, now that everything is pointing to me, you actually think I am capable of that kind of evil? Get. Out.
David: Please wait. Look, I’ll leave if you want. I… I just think we need to talk.
Mary Margaret: So, talk.
David: I need to apologize.
Mary Margaret: Yes, you do. Keep going.
David: I didn’t believe you. I didn’t stand with you.
Mary Margaret: You know, I will never forget that moment… The moment the world sort of blows you backwards, and the one person you thought would always be there to catch you… He isn’t there.
David: Look at what was going on. It was your jewelry box, your fingerprints, knife in your apartment-
Mary Margaret: It was a setup.
David: And a really good one. I’m human. I fell for it. I’m sorry, but… We have to move forward.
Mary Margaret: But we can’t. It’s like something in this world doesn’t want us together.
David: Like what? Dark forces?
Mary Margaret: Maybe. I don’t know, but it’s like something just keeps pouring poison between us. And what I don’t want, is to have all of those good memories… Replaced by moments like that. When I looked at you, and I saw that you didn’t believe me…
David: No. I know. I am so sorry.
Mary Margaret: I know. I know.
David: But, I love you.
Mary Margaret: And that… Is what makes it all so sad.
Emma: Then, we have a problem.
David: No, we don’t. Regina does.
Mary Margaret: David?
Emma: You want to let her die?
David: Why not? Then it goes away and then, we’re safe.
Regina: That’s quite the example you’re setting for your daughter, there.
David: No, you don’t get to judge us.
David: Torches – for when it comes back. I know it’s old fashioned, but so am I.
David: Could there be a tree on this side? The way we sent Emma through as a baby. Maybe I could go after them that way.
Mother Superior: It’s possible, but without fairy dust to guide us here… No, it’s hopeless.
David: Okay. You had a little girl’s tea set in your car and a stuffed rabbit toy, so I’m thinking you have a daughter you love. Well, I do, too. And a wife. And they’re out there somewhere. In the Enchanted Forest, or a void, I don’t even know. But I’m going to get them back.
David: If you cross that line, you’re going to be lost. Everyone who loves you will lose you. But there’s something worse – you’ll lose yourself. Look, I get wanting to leave here, I do. And I get that it’s easier to let go of bad memories, but… Even bad memories are part of us. David, Storybrooke David, was – is – weak, confused. And he hurt the woman I love. I wouldn’t give up being Charming just to be him, but, you know what? I wouldn’t make the other trade, either. Because that David reminds me, not only of who I lost, but of who I want to be. My weaknesses, and my strengths. David, and the Prince. I am both – just like you. You are both. The town is both. We are both. Stay here, and every choice is open to you. Live in the woods if you want. Hell, live in a shoe if you want. Or eat frozen burritos and write software. Let’s open Granny’s and the school. And get back to work. I will protect you. She won’t be able to hurt any of us. Not as long as I’m alive. Not as long as we all come together. As we did before. As we shall do again.
Henry: I’m not coming with you. But I… I thought we were going to find Jefferson?
David: I already did.
Henry: What? Is he going to help us?
David: No. No, Henry, he’s not.
Henry: But why didn’t you tell me you talked to him?
David: Because I didn’t want to disappoint you. I know you want to find your mom, but Jefferson can’t help us. I need to find a way to restore the hat.
David: It had to be something else, Ruby.
Ruby: No, I did this! We both know it.
David: No. A few months ago, everyone thought Mary Margaret was guilty of murder. She needed someone to believe in her. I didn’t do that. I am not going to make the same mistake with you!
Ruby: Mary Margaret never killed anyone. I have.
David: I know who you really are, Ruby. Even if you’ve lost sight of it.
David: You’ll be safe in here tonight.
Ruby: Thank you, David.
David: Thank me in the morning. By then, I’ll have found whoever really killed Billy.
Albert: You already have. That thing. That she-wolf.
David: Get out. Whatever issues you have with me, don’t involve her. There’s no proof Ruby had anything to do with what happened.
Albert: It seems to me, that you’re allowing your emotions to cloud your judgment.
Ruby: Leave him alone.
Albert: Protecting your friend at the peril of everyone else. I knew you’d slip up, shepherd. It was only a matter of time.
David: What do you want?
Albert: Justice. Hand that over to me, and let the town decide her fate.
David: Never. I know exactly what kind of justice you have in mind.
Albert: This town is bigger than you think. I start telling people that you’re putting their lives in danger to protect your own interests? You’ll have a mutiny on your hands.
David: Yeah, we’ll see. You want her, you have to go through me.
Granny: This way. The trunk.
[David pops the truck. Inside, everything appears to be normal. However, underneath, they find Ruby’s hood and a hatchet in the spare tire compartment.]
David: The wolf didn’t kill Billy.
Granny: Ruby’s hood.
David: So she’d be forced to change back into a wolf. So whoever killed Billy could pin the murder on her.
Granny: Who would want to hurt my Ruby?
David smashes in the driver’s side window and finds the registration.]
David: This isn’t about Ruby. It’s about me. Spencer.
Granny: King George?
David: He needed a reason to wrestle power away from me, so he created one.
[A wolf is heard howling in the distance.]
Granny: She’s out.
David: The mob. They’re going to kill her.
David: He may never see his mother or grandmother again. How am I going to break that news to him?
Ruby: You won’t have to.
David: Travel between worlds is as hard as it comes. Fairy dust on its own isn’t enough. It took an entire curse to get us here in the first place. Without the hat…
Ruby: You’ll find another way.
David: You don’t know that.
Ruby: But I know you. And I know you’ll never give up until you do. And David? You’re not going to be doing this alone.
David: Thank you.
Regina: Aurora is gone. Why do we need to send Henry back to that fiery inferno with no one there to receive our message?
David: Because someone will be there.
Regina: Well, that’s an awfully big assumption.
David: No. No, it’s not. She was there once before. She can go back. She can find a way. She will – I know it. And I’ll be waiting.
Regina: You’re going to this Netherworld?
David: I faced you. How bad could it be?
Mr. Gold: It’s not as simple as that. You can’t get there. You haven’t been under a sleeping curse.
David: Well, then put me under one.
Mr. Gold: If we do that, there’s a chance you might never wake up.
David: Sure I will. When I see her, she’ll kiss me, and I’ll be fine. Now, put me under. I’ve spent far too much time looking for my wife. It is time to bring her home.
David: It’s going to be alright.
Henry: How do you know?
David: Well… How did you know Emma would save you after you ate the turnover?
Henry: I… I believed in her.
David: The way Snow and I believed she’d come back to break the curse. That’s the kind of faith that runs in our family.
Prince Charming: Then only one thing is certain – as long as the Queen lives, the kingdom is in danger.
Snow: Are you saying…
Prince Charming: Yes. We must kill the Queen. Thank you all.
Snow: You sure this is what we must do?
Prince Charming: What choice do we have? As long as she draws breath, she will come after us – after you.
Snow: There’s always a choice. You stopped me from killing her once, took an arrow to save her. Why is this different?
Prince Charming: I took that arrow to save your life, not hers. That was an assassination. This is an execution. If we don’t stop her now, there’s no telling what she’ll live to do.
Prince Charming: Snow, I thought we agreed what had to be done. Instead, you show the Queen mercy? She doesn’t deserve it. You heard her. She’s completely unrepentant.
Snow: What I heard, was a woman who didn’t want to appear weak in her final moments.
Prince Charming: I’ve seen her kill, I’ve seen her terrorize. Every moment I’ve seen of her, has been one of evil.
Snow: Exactly. That you’ve seen. But I knew her before. I knew her when she was good. She saved my life when I was a little girl.
Prince Charming: That was years ago.
Snow: She changed before. Why can’t she change back?
Prince Charming: You can’t be serious. You want to rehabilitate the Queen?
Snow: Maybe showing her mercy is the first step.
Prince Charming: But, if you fail, the entire safety of the kingdom is at stake. We cannot take that risk.
Snow: You’re so sure of her black soul? Sure enough to kill? Because there’s no going back from killing.
Prince Charming: If you think this is the right thing to do, then it’s what we shall do. But know that your path is one that we cannot come back from either.
Regina: Oh, it’s now against the law to get into an argument with someone?
David: It is if you go to their office later that night and kill them.
Regina: Archie’s dead?
David: Stop it, Regina. Ruby saw you going into his office last night.
Regina: Then she’s lying. I was home all evening. After everything I’ve done to change, to win Henry back, why would I toss it all away now? And, if I did and I was going to kill Archie, you would never know it. The fact that he’s dead and you caught me shows sloppiness.
David: You’ve been caught before. Come on, Emma. Who do you think’s lying – Ruby, or her? She’s incapable of change, no matter how many times we’ve given her the chance. Why should this time be any different?
Emma: I promise we’ll find whoever really did this.
David: Isn’t it time you admit we already have? Regina had a fight with Archie, Ruby saw her outside last night, and now, her file is empty. That’s… That’s a lot of evidence.
Emma: Maybe that’s the point.
David: What do you mean?
Emma: Well, I don’t know how it is in fairy tale land, but in the real world, it’s usually hard to find evidence. But this has been way too easy. Unless, someone wants us to find evidence.
Mary Margaret: I really liked this one.
David: I don’t know. The yard looks kind of small.
Mary Margaret: You going to say that about every house we look at?
David: I grew up on a farm.
Mary Margaret: This isn’t about the houses, is it?
David: We buried a friend this morning, Mary Margaret, and it made me realize… I don’t want to die here.
Mary Margaret: But our home, David? It doesn’t exist anymore. The ogres are back. Cora’s in power.
David: Which is exactly why we need to return. To make things right – to fight.
Mary Margaret: I’m tired of fighting! That’s all we’ve ever done. We have a chance here – a chance to be together.
David: But what if we don’t belong here? Isn’t it worth it to fight for what we really want?
Mary Margaret: Unless, we don’t want the same thing.
Mary Margaret: You like the holster, huh?
David: I miss carrying a sword.
Leroy: So what’s the plan?
David: Lead the giant away from here, so he can’t hurt anyone.
Mary Margaret: Wait. If we keep heading in this direction, we’re going to hit the town line.
David: Okay, new plan.
Mary Margaret: What are you doing?
David: Giving him what he wants. Anton! How about we make a deal?
Anton: I don’t make deals with humans.
David: Just hear me out. I’ll surrender myself to you, if you spare the lives of everyone in Storybrooke.
Mary Margaret: David, you can’t do this.
David: If I don’t, the whole town will suffer. I can’t allow that. Well, what do you say?
David: Sometimes I wonder how things would’ve turned out if I had been the one raised by King George instead of my brother. You know, would I have been…corrupt like him?
Mary Margaret: Never.
David: Same blood ran through our veins.
Mary Margaret: Mm, but your hearts are different. You may not believe it, but trust me – I know you, Charming. I had a lot of fun today.
Mary Margaret: Uh-huh.
David: Almost getting killed is fun?
Mary Margaret: Yeah. I missed our adventures.
David: Me, too. It was kind of fun. You know, we could do this all the time. When the beans grow, we could go back. Everyone could go home.
Mary Margaret: I don’t know.
David: What don’t you know?
Mary Margaret: Home is where our family is. And that’s here. I don’t know if Emma would come with us, and I am not going to be separated from her again.
David: You know, you gotta look for the moments.
David: Yes. Life is made up of moments – good ones, bad ones, but they’re all worth living.
Emma: Well, I seem to be a magnet for the bad ones.
David: Well, then all the more reason to look for the good moments in between the bad ones.
Emma: And you think having lunch with Neal will be a good moment?
David: I don’t know. Does he eat with his mouth open?
David: Why didn’t you tell me?
Mary Margaret: Because telling you makes things real, and I needed to believe it wasn’t; that I could find a way to stop it, that redemption was possible.
David: It is. Look at August.
Mary Margaret: But it cost him… everything.
David: You are not him, Mary Margaret, and you sure as hell aren’t Regina. Which means, those are not the only two options. We’ll find another way. I know it.
Mary Margaret: What makes you so sure?
[he places her hand over her heart]
David: This does. And I know it better than anyone.
Prince Charming: Snow, I can explain.
Snow: So it’s true. You planted the sword in that stone.
Prince Charming: I did.
Snow: So you took me on an adventure to find a magical sword because…
Prince Charming: You needed to believe in something I already knew.
Snow: So when I stood up to Regina–
Prince Charming: You did that on your own. You had it inside you that entire time. You just…needed some help to realize that.
Snow: But you didn’t.
[Charming shakes his head. Snow White kisses him]
