This is a juvie record! It was sealed by court order. I don't know how you got it, but that's abuse of power and illegal!
REGINA MILLS
Oh, I'm sorry you didn't want people to know you cut his cord with a shiv?
EMMA SWAN
I don't care what people know, but this hurts Henry.
REGINA MILLS
He would have learned eventually. We all lose our heroes at some point.
EMMA SWAN
He doesn't need to lose anything more. He's depressed, madam mayor. He doesn't have any hope. Can't you see that?
REGINA MILLS
He's fine.
EMMA SWAN
He's not fine! I mean, think about it: watching his adoptive mother throw an illegal smear campaign against his birth mother? Don't you think that would be upsetting?

The town charter clearly states, "The mayor shall appoint..."
EMMA SWAN
A candidate. You can appoint a candidate. It calls for an election.
REGINA MILLS
The term 'candidate' is applied loosely.
EMMA SWAN
No, it's not. It requires a vote. And guess what, Madam Mayor, I'm running.
REGINA MILLS
Fine. So is Sidney.
SIDNEY GLASS
I am? [Regina throws him a look] I am.

REGINA MILLS
Marry me.
DANIEL
Regina, what are you doing? What's happened? Did you tell your mother?
REGINA MILLS
No! Now I can never tell her. She won't understand. That girl I saved was the king's daughter, and now he's proposed to me.
DANIEL
What?
REGINA MILLS
My mother accepted! [sobs] The only way out is to run, for us to leave this place, for us to be married, for us to never come back.
DANIEL
Regina, do you understand what that will mean? Life with a stable boy is a far cry from being a queen.
REGINA MILLS
Being a queen is nothing. Daniel, all I care about is you.

EMMA SWAN
(referring to a damaged shovel) Where is it?
REGINA MILLS
Where is what, sheriff?
EMMA SWAN
You knew I was coming.
REGINA MILLS
How on earth would I know that?
EMMA SWAN
Mary Margaret is a good person. She doesn't deserve this.
REGINA MILLS
Miss Blanchard is a liar and a murderer. No matter what accusations you throw my way, that won't change. She is going to pay for what she's done. That woman has destroyed the last life she is ever going to destroy.

REGINA MILLS
[over the phone] You with him?
EMMA SWAN
Yes, I'm with Dr. Hopper, and guess what - you left your fingerprints all over him.

Go back to sleep, Graham. It was only a dream.
SHERIFF GRAHAM
It didn't feel like a dream. It felt like a memory.

People don't change; they only fool themselves into believing they can.

[about Emma's association with Mr. Gold] He's a snake, Ms. Swan. You need to be careful who you get into bed with.

REGINA MILLS
You didn't pick a great friend in Mr. Gold, Ms. Swan. But he does make a superlative enemy. [smiles] Enjoy that!

REGINA MILLS
[to Emma] You're not thinking about Henry or his safety. Just ways around me.
