    • Regina: You remember Claude.
      Hook: Can't say that I do.
      Regina: You killed him in the cell block.
      Hook: Ah, yes. I didn't recognize him without my hook in his neck.

    • Cora: Your name, pirate.
      Hook: Hook.
      Cora: What a clever nickname.

    • Hook: (to Emma) A pirate always keep a souvenir of his conquest. But this... well, this is much more than a mere trinket. This is a symbol--something that atht was once magical, full of hope, possibility. Mm. Now look at it. Dried up, dead, useless. Much like you. The time for making deals is done, just as I'm done... with you.

    • Mary Margaret: We're going to win this fight, you know. Good always defeats evil.
      Emma: You sound like Henry.
      Mary Margaret: Guess optimism runs in the family.
      Emma: I think it skipped a generation.

    • Hook: Normally, I'd prefer to do other more enjoyable activities with a woman on her back. With my life on the line you've left me no choice. Bit of advice, when I jab you with my sword you'll feel it. You might want to quit.
      Emma: Why would I do that, when I'm winning?

    Trivia (2)

    • At first, Gold states that by joining his powers and those of Regina, the portal from the enchanted forest can be destroyed. Then what he actually does is seal it with some stolen fairy powder, with neither his magic nor Regina's involved at all. Regina's presence ends up proving totally unnecessary.

    • Trivia: Behind the opening title, the waters of Lake Nostros erupt from the ground.

      Cora is heartless, literally lol. "I the Queen of Hearts, do you really think I be so careless to keep my heart where everyone else does?"XD Wonder if her heart is still in Wonderland (or wherever she kept it)?
