Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)
[from trailer]
Queen Ravenna: Lips red as blood, hair black as night, bring me your heart, my dear, dear Snow White.

[from trailer]
Queen Ravenna: Do you hear that? It's the sound of battles fought and lives lost. It once pained me to know that I am the cause of such despair, but now their cries give me strength. Beauty is my power.

[from trailer]
Queen Ravenna: Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who is fairest of them all?

[from trailer]
The Huntsman: Why is she of such value?
Queen Ravenna: That is none of your concern.
The Huntsman: And if I refuse?
[the guards all level their spears at him]

[from trailer]
Mirror Man: My queen, you have defied nature and robbed it of its fairest root. But on this day there is one more beautiful than you.
Queen Ravenna: Who is it?
Mirror Man: Snow White.

Queen Ravenna: Come and avenge your father, who was too weak to raise his sword.

Queen Ravenna: You are one of the few who has ventured into the dark forest. One of my prisoners has escaped there.
The Huntsman: Then he is dead.
Queen Ravenna: She.
The Huntsman: Then she is certainly dead.

Queen Ravenna: I shall give this wretched world the queen it deserves.

Queen Ravenna: [to young Snow White] I feel that you and I are bound.

Queen Ravenna: You don't even realize how lucky you are never to know what it is to grow old!

Queen Ravenna: You were the only one who could break the spell and destroy me, and the only one pure enough to save me.

Queen Ravenna: Where is she?
Finn: She was chased into the Dark Forest, where the men lost her.

King Magnus: Fear not. You will come to no harm from me or my men. What is your name, my lady?
Queen Ravenna: Ravenna, Sire.
The Huntsman: [narration] So enchanted by her beauty was the king he forgot for the first time his broken heart. And the very next day she would become his wife.

Young Snow White: You're so beautiful.
Queen Ravenna: That's kind, child. Especially when it's said that yours is the face of true beauty in this kingdom. This all must be difficult for you. I too lost my mother when I was a young girl. I can never take your mother's place, ever. But I feel that you and I are bound. I feel it there, your heart.

Queen Ravenna: I was ruined by a king like you once. I replaced his queen. An old woman. And in time I too would have been replaced. Men use women. They ruin us and when they are finished with us they toss us to the dogs like scraps.

Queen Ravenna: Finn! Lock her up. One never knows when royal blood may be of value.

Queen Ravenna: Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who is fairest of them all?
Mirror Man: My Queen, on this day one has come of age fairer even than you. She is the reason your powers wane.
Queen Ravenna: Who is it?
Mirror Man: Snow White.
Queen Ravenna: Snow White? She is my undoing? I should have killed her when she was a child!
Mirror Man: Be warned, her innocence and purity is all that can destroy you. But she is also your salvation, Queen. Take her heart in your hand and you shall never again need to consume youth. You shall never again weaken or age.
Queen Ravenna: Immortality. Immortality forever.
[yells]
Queen Ravenna: Finn! Brother, bring me the King's daughter.

Queen Ravenna: She's no good to me in the Dark Forest, lost! I need her heart!

Queen Ravenna: How is it that an innocent, young girl makes a fool of my brother? Armed only with a nail. If she'd had a sword she would have taken my kingdom. Bring me the King's daughter and you let her slip right through your tiny little fingers. How? You swore that you would protect me! You swore! Now there's no one I can trust. No one! There's no loyalty, no loyalty. None! Not even from you!

Queen Ravenna: My brother tells me you are a widower. A drunkard. And one of few who has ventured into the Dark Forest.
The Huntsman: Aye.
Queen Ravenna: One of my prisoners has escaped there.
The Huntsman: Then he's dead.
Queen Ravenna: She.
The Huntsman: She is certainly dead.
Queen Ravenna: Find her. Bring her to me.
The Huntsman: No, I've been to that forest. I'm not going back.
Queen Ravenna: You will be rewarded handsomely.
The Huntsman: What good is gold to me if I'm lying dead with the crows picking at my eyes? Why is she of such value?
Queen Ravenna: That is none of your concern.
The Huntsman: I'll determine what concerns me, thank you.
Queen Ravenna: [yelling] You will do this for me, huntsman!
The Huntsman: And if I refuse?
[guards point spears at him]
The Huntsman: Do me the favor, I beg of you.

The Huntsman: Do not speak of my wife!
Queen Ravenna: You miss her. What would you give to see her again? You know of my powers. Bring me the girl and I will bring back your wife.
The Huntsman: Nothing can bring her back.
Queen Ravenna: I can. A life for a life.

Queen Ravenna: You see, child, love always betrays us. By fairest blood it was done and only by fairest blood can it be undone. You were the only one who could break the spell and destroy me. And the only one pure enough to save me. You don't even realize how lucky you are never to know what it is to grow old!

Queen Ravenna: Then let them come. Let them break their skulls on these stone walls and bring me my prize.

Queen Ravenna: Come and avenge your father who was too weak to raise his sword. Go on, watch them die. How does it feel knowing you were the one who led them to their deaths? You see? We're not that different, are we?
Snow White: I'm everything you're not.
Queen Ravenna: You cannot defeat me! I've lived too many lives. Ravaged entire kingdoms. I have been given powers that you could not even fathom! I will never stop. Never. I will give this wretched world the queen it deserves!

Queen Ravenna: You will do this for me, Huntsman!
The Huntsman: And if I refuse?

Finn: Magic comes at a lofty price.
Queen Ravenna: [looking into the mirror] And the expense grows.


"Once Upon a Time: We Are Both (#2.2)" (2012)
Regina Mills: Surprised you don't have armed guards 'round the clock.
David Nolan: Don't need 'em. We both know if you step outside, there's a line a mile long for your head.

Regina Mills: Maybe you should be less concerned with hats, and more concerned with taking care of my son.
David Nolan: [sarcastically] Oh, because you took such great care of him.
Regina Mills: I will not listen to childcare lectures from a man who put his daughter in a box and shipped her to Maine.

David Nolan: Frustrated, are we? Serves you right. You earned every bit of this.
Regina Mills: Keep on baiting me, Charming! Right now I don't have magic and I don't have my son, but when I get one, I get the other. And you don't want to be around when that happens.
David Nolan: If you have to use magic to keep your son, you don't really have him.

Archie Hopper: Regina. I thought you might want to talk.
Regina Mills: Oh, right, the conscience thing.
Archie Hopper: It's what I do.
Regina Mills: I'm in no mood.
Archie Hopper: It's too bad, 'cause... 'cause I think talking about your pain might be very helpful. Might help you learn who you truly are.
Regina Mills: [with quiet intensity] I know who I am.

Regina: Daddy, you don't know what Mother's doing to me. It's like she's turning me into her. I have to get away.
Henry: Get away? But tomorrow's the wedding, child.
Regina: I don't want to marry the king. I've told you that.
Henry: Are you certain it isn't just cold feet?
Regina: Daddy, this is not cold feet. This, this is... this is insanity! I'm angry all the time. She's making me crazy.
Henry: She wants to give you everything she never got for herself.
Regina: I don't want her life! I want a life of my own.

Regina: Rumplesh... shtilts... Rumpleshtiltskin, I summon thee.
Rumplestiltskin: That's not how you say it, dearie. But then, you didn't have to say anything.

Regina: [referring to her mother] People say I look like her when she was younger.
Rumplestiltskin: Really? I don't see it.

Rumplestiltskin: It's been some time; but I knew this day would come. I've been waiting for it. And I'm so happy... we're back where we belong.
Regina: Where's that?
Rumplestiltskin: Together.

Mr. Gold: [handing Regina the book of spells] Careful, dearie. These are straight-up spells - rough on the system.
Regina Mills: I don't care if they turn me green. I'm getting my son back!
Mr. Gold: Oh, my!
Regina Mills: What?
Mr. Gold: [indicating the book] It's just holding that. I told you once you didn't look like her, but now... now I can see it.

Mr. Gold: Leave. Please.
Regina Mills: Well... how about that? Your "pleases" have lost their punch.
Mr. Gold: Well, the fact remains... jump-starting your magic is not in my best interests.
Regina Mills: You know what else isn't in your best interest? Having everyone know the Enchanted Forest still exists. Knowing that you and I are keeping that little secret. You're up to something. And it doesn't involve going back home.

Henry Mills: How long am I in prison? Till I grow up?
Regina Mills: Henry, I rescued you because I love you.
Henry Mills: So I'm a prisoner because you love me. That's not fair.

Regina Mills: You can have all the friends you want come over anytime, and you can show them everything in your book.
Henry Mills: No one's gonna want to come over here. They're scared of you.
Regina Mills: You can make them not be scared. You can make them love you.
Henry Mills: I don't want that. I don't want to be you.

Cora: The king's not a strong man. The kingdom will be yours. Raise the tributes, form a personal guard. Let everyone know where the new power lies, and you'll hold the hearts of your people in your hands.
Regina: Is that what you would do, Mother?
Cora: That's exactly what I would do.
Regina: Well, the thing is, I don't want to be you.

Regina: Mama, I don't wanna marry the king. I don't want this life!
Cora: You're just frightened of having all that power.
Regina: I don't want power! I want to be free.
Cora: Power is freedom.

[Regina has returned the book of spells to Rumplestiltskin]
Rumplestiltskin: Before you go... answer me this: how did it feel?
Regina: I love my mother...
Rumplestiltskin: That's not what I asked, dearie. How did it feel, to use magic?
Regina: It doesn't matter. I'll never use it again.
Rumplestiltskin: Why not?
Regina: Because I loved it!
Rumplestiltskin: [squeals in delight] You've discovered who you are. You could do so much now. If-you-let-me-show-you-how.
Regina: Through magic.
Rumplestiltskin: Through many things.
Regina: And what do you get out of it?
Rumplestiltskin: Someday... you'll do something for me. Let me guide you.
Regina: And I won't become like her?
Rumplestiltskin: That, dearie, is entirely up... to you.

Regina Mills: [to her son] I don't know how to love very well. I wasn't capable of it for a very long time. But I know, I remember... that if you hold on to someone too hard, that doesn't make them love you. I'm sorry I lied to you, that I made you feel like I didn't know who you are. But I want you to be here because you want to be here, not because I forced you. And not because of magic. I want to redeem myself.


Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
[first lines]
Queen: Slave in the magic mirror, come from the farthest space, through wind and darkness I summon thee. Speak! Let me see thy face.
Magic Mirror: What wouldst thou know, my Queen?
Queen: Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?
Magic Mirror: Famed is thy beauty, Majesty. But hold, a lovely maid I see. Rags cannot hide her gentle grace. Alas, she is more fair than thee.
Queen: Alas for her! Reveal her name.
Magic Mirror: Lips red as the rose. Hair black as ebony. Skin white as snow.
Queen: Snow White!

Queen: Magic Mirror, on the wall, who, now, is the fairest one of all?
Magic Mirror: Over the seven jewelled hills, beyond the seventh fall, in the cottage of the Seven Dwarfs, dwells Snow White, fairest of them all.
Queen: Snow White lies dead in the forest. The huntsman has brought me proof. Behold, her heart.
Magic Mirror: Snow White still lives, fairest in the land. 'Tis the heart of a pig you hold in your hand.
Queen: The heart of a pig! Then I've been tricked!

Queen: Take her far into the forest. Find some secluded glade where she can pick wildflowers.
Huntsman: Yes, Your Majesty.
Queen: And there, my faithful huntsman, you will kill her!
Huntsman: [protesting] But Your Majesty! The little princess!
Queen: [rising] Silence! You know the penalty if you fail.
Huntsman: [solemnly] Yes, Your Majesty.
Queen: But to make doubly sure you do not fail, bring back her heart in this.

Queen: Now, a formula to transform my beauty into ugliness. Change my queenly raiment to a peddler's cloak. Mummy dust, to make me old. To shroud my clothes, the black of night. To age my voice, an old hag's cackle. To whiten my hair, a scream of fright. A blast of wind to fan my hate. A thunderbolt to mix it well. Now, begin thy magic spell.

Queen: But wait! There may be an antidote. Nothing must be overlooked.
[flips through the book she was reading earlier till she finds the antidote]
Queen: Ah, hear this! "The Victim of the Sleeping Death can be revived only by Love's First Kiss." "Love's First Kiss."
[slamming the book closed]
Queen: Bah! No fear of that. The dwarfs will think she's dead. She'll be buried alive!
[Cackles as she puts the poisoned apple into a basket filled with other apples and leaves by a trapdoor in the cellar floor]
Queen: Buried alive!
[cackles again]

Queen: All alone, my pet?
Snow White: Why, why, yes, I am, but.
Queen: Then the little men are not here?
Snow White: No, they're not, but.
Queen: Mmm, mm-hmm.
[Sniffing]
Queen: Baking pies?
Snow White: Yes, gooseberry pie.
Queen: It's apple pies that make the menfolks' mouths water.
[presenting the poisoned apple to Snow White]
Queen: Pies made from apples like these.
Snow White: Oh, they do look delicious.
Queen: Yes, but wait till you taste one, dearie. Like to try one, hm? Go on. Go on, have a bite.

Queen: And because you've been so good to poor old Granny, I'll share a secret with you. This is no ordinary apple, it's a magic wishing apple.
Snow White: A wishing apple?
Queen: Yes! One bite, and all your dreams will come true.
Snow White: Really?
Queen: Yes, girlie. Now, make a wish, and take a bite.

Snow White: Oh, I feel strange.
[Starts gasping for air]
Queen: [to herself] Her breath will still. Her blood congeal.
[Snow White drops onto the floor]
Queen: [Cackling] Now I'll be fairest in the land!

Queen: [Passes the skeleton of a prisoner reaching for a pitcher] Thirsty? Have a drink!
[Kicks the pitcher; the skeleton crumbles and a spider skitters out]

Queen: Dip the apple in the brew. Let the Sleeping Death seep through.
[the poison on the apple forms a skull]
Queen: Look! On the skin! The symbol of what lies within. Now, turn red, to tempt Snow White, to make her hunger for a bite.
Queen: [offering the apple to the raven] Have a bite?
[the raven flaps wildly, trying to escape]
Queen: [laughing] It's not for you, it's for Snow White. When she breaks the tender peel, to taste the apple in my hand, her breath will still, her blood congeal, then I'll be fairest in the land!

Queen: I'll fix ya! I'll crush your bones!

Queen: Look! My hands!
[the Queen's formerly smooth hands grow and turn wrinkled and clawed with long pointed fingernails, a large cyst on her left, as her cloak turns jet black]
Queen: My voice!
[the Queen's voice is no longer deep and smooth at this point, but now rough and witch-like]
Queen: My voice!
[evil cackle]
Queen: A perfect disguise!
[another dark cackle, as the Queen in her complete peddler disguise reveals her whole face, terrifying the raven as he dives into a skull in terror]
Queen: And now, a special sort of death... for one so fair. What shall it be... ahhh!
[the terrified raven in the skull jumps back, shivering and quaking as he hides behind a desk]
Queen: A poisoned apple! Sleeping death! Oh ho ho ho. One taste of the poisoned apple, and the victim's eyes will close forever... in the sleeping death!
[the hag turns to face the camera, smiling devilishly as it zooms in on her face, before it fades to black]


"Once Upon a Time: Welcome to Storybrooke (#2.17)" (2013)
[Storybrooke, day 1]
Archie Hopper: Morning, Madam Mayor.
Regina Mills: Good morning, Crick... Dr. Hopper.
Archie Hopper: Beautiful day, isn't it?
Regina Mills: Yes. Yes, it is.

[Storybrooke, a few days later]
Archie Hopper: Beautiful day.
Regina Mills: Save it.

Regina Mills: [showing Mary Margaret a man in a sickbed] Tell me. Do you know this man?
Mary Margaret Blanchard: [takes a long look at David] No... Why? Who is he?
Regina Mills: He's a John Doe, a coma patient. No one's claimed him.
Mary Margaret Blanchard: [romantically hopeful] Maybe someday he'll wake up; maybe someone who loves him will find him.
Regina Mills: That would be nice for him. But I wouldn't count on it.

Regina Mills: [referring to Owen] Whose child is this? Is he yours?
Marco: Mine? No. I was never so lucky.

Regina Mills: I don't like surprises, Sheriff. I find them threatening. And do you know what happens when I feel threatened? Bad things.

Regina Mills: I'm not happy.
Mr. Gold: I believe Dr. Hopper's office is down the street.

Regina Mills: What good's a new life if you don't have anyone to share it with?

Owen: All the kids at my school treat me weird now.
Regina Mills: Because of what happened to your mother?
Owen: [nods] Nobody gets it. It's like...
Regina Mills: There's a piece of your heart missing.

[Storybrooke, present day]
Mr. Gold: Why don't you just give up this obsession with vengeance? You know it can never make you happy.
Regina Mills: Yes, it will.
Mr. Gold: You had a whole curse worth of vengeance, and what did it get you? A gaping hole in your heart.
Regina Mills: That was your curse.
Mr. Gold: Which you cast. Still haven't learned your lesson, have you?
Regina Mills: What lesson?
Mr. Gold: The same one your mother learned a long time ago. You can't have everything. She wanted power, ripped out her own heart to get it. You want vengeance? Henry's the price you'll pay.

Regina Mills: I will have my son, and I will have my vengeance. I will find a way to have everything.

Mary Margaret Blanchard: Kill me.
Regina Mills: What?
Mary Margaret Blanchard: Regina, we have been fighting for so long. It's cost us so much. It has to end before anyone else dies. So, please... just do it.
Regina Mills: [shakes her head] Henry would never forgive me. But you know what my problem is? I never learn from my mistakes.
[and she rips Mary Margaret's heart out... ]

[Regina has detected a black spot in Mary Margaret's heart]
Regina Mills: Once you blacken your heart, it only grows darker... and darker. Trust me, I know.
Mary Margaret Blanchard: So crush it. Do it! Crush it! Get it over with.
Regina Mills: And put you out of your misery? I don't need to destroy you, you're doing it to yourself. And along the way, you'll bring down that perfect little family you fought so hard to reunite. And then Henry will be mine.
Mary Margaret Blanchard: [in tears] Please kill me. Please, just kill me.
Regina Mills: [cheerful] You see, I *can* have everything...
[she puts Mary Margaret's heart back in place]
Regina Mills: Thanks to you. Now get off my porch!


"Once Upon a Time: The Doctor (#2.5)" (2012)
Regina: Can you teach me how to use magic to bring back the dead?
Rumplestiltskin: That's what this is about? The stable boy?
Regina: I want true happiness.
Rumplestiltskin: Then find it elsewhere, dearie. Magic can do much, but not that. Dead... is dead.
Regina: Then I am lost.
Rumplestiltskin: And I've had my time wasted. I'm sorry, but, erm, transcending death is beyond even my reach.

[Rumplestiltskin has ordered Regina to take out a unicorn's heart]
Regina: I can't. It's innocent.
Rumplestiltskin: Nothing is innocent.

Regina: I didn't sign up to kill unicorns.

Regina Mills: I know you took Daniel's body, and you took one of my hearts. Why? WHY? Did you bring him back?
Dr. Whale: I did it.
Regina Mills: He's alive?
Dr. Whale: Yes. I brought him back. But he's not Daniel.
Regina Mills: What?
Dr. Whale: He's... he's a monster.

Daniel: Stop. Just stop the pain.
Regina Mills: How?
Daniel: Just... let me go.
Regina Mills: No. No, I won't lose you again. Without you, I'm lost. Daniel! Daniel, come back to me!
Daniel: [in agony] Can't, Regina.
Regina Mills: [whispering] But I love you.
Daniel: Then love again.

Regina Mills: Goodbye, Daniel.

The Doctor: These are all... hearts?
Regina: My mother was a collector.
The Mad Hatter: Whose hearts are these?
Regina: I have no idea. She took so many, caused so much pain, it was impossible to keep track. She was a monster.

[Rumplestiltskin is supervising a girl practicing magic, when Regina enters the clearing]
Regina > Evil Queen: Who's this?
Rumplestiltskin: Uuh, your replacement, of course. I needed someone more dedicated.
Regina > Evil Queen: Dedicated?
[she turns to the girl, nonchalantly rips her heart out and crushes it]
Regina > Evil Queen: Now... where were we?

Dr. Whale: Send me back.
Regina Mills: Excuse me?
Dr. Whale: To my land. Send me back to my brother.
Regina Mills: Why don't you check the "Missing" board like everyone else?
Dr. Whale: Your curse only brought the *living*.
Regina Mills: Well, then I'm sorry for your loss. But I'm afraid I can't send anyone anywhere.

Regina Mills: It's just that magic is the way I've always gotten everything.
Archie Hopper: It sounds like it's also the way you've lost everything.


"Once Upon a Time: Save Henry (#3.9)" (2013)
Rumplestiltskin: I'm waiting!
[Regina appears from a cloud of purple smoke]
Rumplestiltskin: What took you so long, dearie?
The Evil Queen: You know what took so long.
Rumplestiltskin: Oh, yes. The curse. You did it.
The Evil Queen: That's right, I did it. And I wanted you to know it before you, like all the pathetic denizens of this wretched land, forgets everything.
Rumplestiltskin: How did it feel?
The Evil Queen: Watching the curse cloud form? Felt like victory.
Rumplestiltskin: [laughing] How did it feel to kill the thing you love most? Ripping the heart out of your father - how did that feel?
The Evil Queen: It was the price of the curse. How it felt doesn't matter. He would've understood. I took my life back. I had to. I won.
Rumplestiltskin: And yet, here you are, feeling the need to gloat. Something's missing, isn't it, dearie?
The Evil Queen: Not at all. I have everything I want. Nothing can stop me now.
Rumplestiltskin: [laughing] Not quite.
The Evil Queen: What does that mean?
Rumplestiltskin: The savior. The child of Snow White and Prince Charming. *She* can stop you. *She* can break the curse.
The Evil Queen: Well, it looks like getting rid of a baby just made my to-do list.
Rumplestiltskin: Of course it did, but, even if you succeed with that, you have an even bigger problem. Now there's a hole in your heart, and someday, you will come to me to fill it.
The Evil Queen: You overestimate your powers of foresight.
Rumplestiltskin: And you underestimate the price of what you've done! You shall see, you will come to me. There is more you need, oh.
The Evil Queen: Your taunts will get you nowhere. I know you too well. You wanna make another deal. Well, I won't.
Rumplestiltskin: A deal? You've already promised me a good life in this new land. What more could I want from you?
The Evil Queen: Oh, to be... let out of this cage? To be... let out of our last deal? To escape the curse?
Rumplestiltskin: But why would I desire that, dearie? I'm exactly where I want to be.

Regina Mills: [to Henry] I know that look. That's five hours of Space Paranoids and too much pizza.

Peter Pan: Last words from the Queen. Perhaps a deathbed confession from the one who has the most to regret of all.
Regina Mills: Yeah, there's one problem with that. I did cast a curse that devastated an entire population.I have tortured and murdered. I've done some terrible things. I should be overflowing with regret, but... I'm *not*. Because it got me my son.
[she rips Henry's heart out of Pan]
Regina Mills: Now... let's go save Henry.

Adoption Agent: Never heard of Storybrooke.
Regina Mills: Oh, it's a... hidden gem. Peaceful, perfect for children. It's like a fairy tale.

Regina Mills: Once upon a time there was a queen. And she cast a glorious curse that gave her everything she wanted... or so she thought. She despaired when she learned that revenge was not enough. She was lonely. And so she searched the land for a little boy to be her prince. And then... she found him. And though they lived happily, it was not ever after. There was still an evil out there lurking. The Queen was worried for her prince's safety. While she knew she could vanquish any threat to the boy, she also knew she couldn't raise him worrying. No. She needed to put her own troubles aside, and put her child first. And so, the Queen procured an ancient potion of forgetting. Oh, it's all right. If the Queen drinks the potion, she won't forget her child. She'll only forget her worries. Her troubles. Her fears. And with those gone, she, and her prince, can indeed finally live happily ever after.

Regina Mills: I need a child, Gold. And I need your help.
Mr. Gold: Well, I'm flattered, but uninterested.
Regina Mills: Not like that!

Mr. Gold: You wish to adopt.
Regina Mills: Well, don't look so surprised.
Mr. Gold: Oh, I'm not. I'm sure you'll make a... well, a mother of some sort.

Neal Cassidy: Even if we can find Pan, he was powerful before. With Henry's heart, I-I don't know if we can hurt him.
Regina Mills: Yes, we can. Look.
[she points at the bloody sword in Emma's hand]
Regina Mills: You nicked him. If he can bleed, we can hurt him. And if we can hurt him, we can kill him. And we will.

Dr. Whale: [examining baby Henry, who is crying] Well, his heart's as strong as a locomotive. And his lungs are healthy, clearly.
Regina Mills: Well, what-what about a blood test? Or a chest X-ray?
Dr. Whale: Is he a smoker?
Regina Mills: What?
Dr. Whale: Look, it's obvious what the problem is. He's a crying baby.
Regina Mills: [scoffs] I paid for this?
Dr. Whale: Actually, your insurance did.
Regina Mills: What do I do?
Dr. Whale: Ah. I can prescribe you something. 10 ccs of maternal love.

Regina Mills: Henry is *my* son. The best thing for Henry is to stay with a mother who will never let go of him. Ever again.


"Once Upon a Time: Pilot (#1.1)" (2011)
Evil Queen: I've come to give you a gift.
Snow White: We want nothing from you.
Evil Queen: But you shall have it. My gift to you... is this happy... happy day. For tomorrow, my real work begins. You've made your vows, now I make mine. Soon, everything you love, everything all of you love, will be taken from you, forever. And out of your suffering will rise my victory. I shall destroy your happiness, if it is the last thing I do!

Evil Queen: [seeing Snow White holding her fallen Prince Charming] Oh, don't worry, dear. In a few moments, you won't remember you knew him, let alone loved him.
Snow White: Why did you do this?
Evil Queen: Because this is my happy ending.
[two guards approach]
Evil Queen: The child?
The Black Knight: Gone. It was in the wardrobe and then it was gone. It's nowhere to be found.
Evil Queen: Where is she?
Snow White: [smiling] She got away. You're going to lose. I know that now. Good will always win.

[the curse is upon the Enchanted Forest]
Snow White: Where are we going?
Evil Queen: Somewhere horrible. Absolutely horrible. A place where the only happy ending will be mine.

Evil Queen: I shall destroy your happiness, if it is the last thing I do.

Prince Charming: I will not let you ruin this wedding.
Evil Queen: Oh, I haven't come here to ruin anything. On the contrary, dear, I've come to give you a gift.
Snow White: We want nothing from you.
Evil Queen: But you shall have it. My gift to you is this happy, happy day. For tomorrow my real work begins. You've made your vows, now I make mine. Soon, everything you've loved, everything all of you love, will be taken from you - forever. And out of your suffering, will rise my victory. I shall destroy your happiness, if it is the last thing I do.

Evil Queen: I will destroy your happiness, if it is the last thing I do.

Regina Mills: How would you like a glass of the best apple cider you ever tasted?
Emma Swan: Got anything stronger?

Regina Mills: You have a job, I assume?
Emma Swan: Erm... I keep busy, yeah.
Regina Mills: Imagine having another one on top of it. That's being a single mom. So I push for order. Am I strict? I suppose. But I do it for his own good. I want Henry to excel in life. I don't think that makes me evil, do you?

Regina Mills: Do you know what a closed adoption is? It's what you asked for. You have no legal right to Henry, and you're gonna be held to that. So I suggest you get in your car, and you leave this town. Because if you don't, I will destroy you, if it is the last thing I do! Goodbye, Ms. Swan.


"Once Upon a Time: An Apple Red as Blood (#1.21)" (2012)
Regina Mills: I do hope you like apples.

Mr. Gold: Come on, you might as well get everything off your chest.
Regina Mills: I don't know what you're talking about.
Mr. Gold: Henry. Ms. Swan wants him.
Regina Mills: She'll have that boy over my dead body.
Mr. Gold: The curse was meant to take away Snow White and Prince Charming's happiness. Perhaps you giving up Henry is just the price to keep the curse unbroken.
Regina Mills: I think I'd rather just get rid of her.

Regina Mills: I wanna strike a new deal. One where I can get rid of Emma without shattering the curse.
Mr. Gold: Unfortunately for you, a negotiation requires two interested parties; and I'm already planning a trip.
Regina Mills: I'll give you anything.
Mr. Gold: Oh... You no longer have anything I want, dearie. But I will give you a piece of advice, free of charge: I'd plan a trip of your own. Because once people waken up and remember who you are, and what you did to them...
[chuckles]
Mr. Gold: ...they are gonna be looking for blood.

Regina Mills: I found a solution to my Emma Swan problem.
Mr. Gold: Oh, yes?
Regina Mills: An old, reliable solution.
Mr. Gold: A sleeping curse... Might I ask how you managed to obtain one here in Storybrooke?
Regina Mills: By sacrificing the last bit of magic I had left.
Mr. Gold: So you made magic *from* magic. Well, I'm sure I don't have to remind you that, um... all magic comes with a price.
Regina Mills: Then you can pay it.

Regina Mills: The deal's not done. Not until I solve the next conundrum. How to get this savior to taste my forbidden fruit.

[Snow White and Prince Charming, separated by a glass wall, are pining for each other, when Charming is suddenly replaced by the Evil Queen]
Evil Queen: [laughs] I just had to stop you. I have no interest in cleaning tongue marks off my mirror.

Evil Queen: I wonder if you'll be quite so incorruptible after your precious Snow is gone.
Prince Charming: Whatever she did to you, leave her alone and take my life instead.

Evil Queen: Did you know that apples stand for health and wisdom?
Snow White: So why do I get the feeling that one might kill me?
Evil Queen: It won't kill you. No, what it will do is far worse. Your body will be your tomb; and you'll be in there with nothing but dreams formed of your own regrets.


"Once Upon a Time: The Thing You Love Most (#1.2)" (2011)
Regina Mills: [Seeing Emma destroying the apple tree] What the hell are you doing!
Emma Swan: Picking Apples.
Regina Mills: You're out of your mind!
Emma Swan: No you are if you think a shoddy frame job is enough to scare me off. You're going to have to do better than that. You come after me one more time I'm coming back for the rest of this tree. Because sister you have no idea what I'm capable of. Your move.

Mr. Gold: [Seeing the destroyed apple tree] What a mess.
Regina Mills: Not for long. What can i do for you Mr. Gold?
Mr. Gold: I was just in the neighborhood, thought I'd stop by. Lovely to see you in such high spirits.
Regina Mills: Well it's been a good day. I just rid the town of an unwanted nuisance.
Mr. Gold: Emma Swan. Really?
Regina Mills: Yes. I imagine she's half way to Boston by now.
Mr. Gold: I wouldn't bet on that. I've just seen her strolling down main street with your boy, thick as thieves they looked.
Regina Mills: What?
Mr. Gold: Perhaps you should've come to me. If Miss. Swan is a problem you can't fix, I'm only too happy to help, for a price of course.
Regina Mills: I'm not in the business of making deals with you any more.
Mr. Gold: To which deal are you referring?
Regina Mills: You know what deal.
Mr. Gold: Oh, right yeah. The boy i procured for you. Henry. Ever tell you what a lovely name that was? However did you pick it?
Regina Mills: Did you want her to come to town? You wanted all of this to happen didn't you? Your finding Henry wasn't an accident was it?
Mr. Gold: What ever do you mean?
Regina Mills: Where did you get him? Do you know something?
Mr. Gold: I have no idea what your implying.
Regina Mills: I think you do. Who is this woman, his mother, this Emma Swan?
Mr. Gold: I would say you think you know exactly who she is. I really must be going.
Regina Mills: Tell me what you know about her!
Mr. Gold: I'm not going to answer you dear, so i suggest you excuse me... Please.

Evil Queen: Since when do I care about anyone else's happiness but mine?

Evil Queen: Since when were apples a threat?

Evil Queen: What do you want?
Rumpelstiltskin: Simple. In this new land, i want comfort. I want a good life!
Evil Queen: Fine, you'll have an estate, be rich
Rumpelstiltskin: I wasn't finished! There's more!
Evil Queen: There always is with you
Rumpelstiltskin: In this new land, should i ever come to you for any reason, you must heed me every request. You must do whatever i say so long as i say... please!
Evil Queen: You do realise that, should i succeed, you wont remember any of this
Rumpelstiltskin: Oh, well then, what's the harm?
Evil Queen: Deal. What must i do to enact this curse?
Rumpelstiltskin: You need to sacrifice a heart
Evil Queen: I sacrificed my prized stead
Rumpelstiltskin: A horse? This is the curse to end all curses, you think a horse is gonna do? Great power requires great sacrifice. The heart you need must come from something far more precious
Evil Queen: Tell me what will suffice?
Rumpelstiltskin: The heart of the thing you love most
Evil Queen: What i love most died because of Snow White
Rumpelstiltskin: Is there no one else you truly love? This curse isn't gonna be easy, vengeance never is dearie. You have to ask yourself the simple question, how far are you willing to go?
Evil Queen: As far as it takes
Rumpelstiltskin: Then please stop wasting everyones time and just do it! You know what you love, now go kill it!

Maleficent: How are you dear?
Evil Queen: I've been fine.
Maleficent: Are you? If it were me I'd be simply tortured watching that flake of Snow so happy. Weren't you about the same age when you were to be married before she ruined it all? Yes, you were.
Evil Queen: Yes, it was about the same age you were when that sleeping beauty got the best of you, my dear Maleficent.
Maleficent: I soldiered on as you will too, hopefully.
Evil Queen: Enough games, you know why I'm here. I need my curse back.
Maleficent: It's not yours any more, a deals a deal. I traded you me sleeping curse.
Evil Queen: Which failed, undone by a simple kiss. Now please return whats mine.
Maleficent: The dark curse? Really? You must know that even it's unholy power can not bring your loved one back from the dead. Have you considered a pet? They can be quite comforting.
Evil Queen: The only comfort for me is Snow White's suffering.
Maleficent: Well it's her wedding night, i doubt she's suffering right now.
Evil Queen: I need that curse. I know you keep it hidden in the orb above your staff.
Maleficent: Hidden for the good of all, old friend. Whoever created that monstrosity makes the two of us look positively... moral. Who did give it too you?

Evil Queen: That curse you gave me, it's not working.
Rumpelstiltskin: Oh so worried. So, so worried. Like Snow and her lovely new husband
Evil Queen: What?
Rumpelstiltskin: They paid me a visit as well. They were very anxious, about you and the curse.
Evil Queen: What'd you tell them?
Rumpelstiltskin: The truth. That nothing can stop the darkness! Except, of course, their unborn child. You see, no matter how powerful, all curses can be broken. Their child is the key. Of course the curse has to be enacted first.
Evil Queen: Tell me what I did wrong.
Rumpelstiltskin: Now for that, there's a price.

Evil Queen: Who among us is tired of losing? That's why I called you here. To put an end to our misery. Today, we claim victory and move to a new, better realm. A place where we can finally win.
Blind Witch: And we'll be happy?
Evil Queen: I guarantee it.


"Once Upon a Time: Broken (#2.1)" (2012)
Dr. Whale: [pounds on Regina's door with the mob behind him] Open up! Open up, or we're coming in!
Regina Mills: [opens door and smiles sweetly] Can I help you?
Dr. Whale: That smirk? Isn't gonna last forever, Regina. You took everything from us, and now...
Regina Mills: What? Now you're gonna kill me?
Dr. Whale: Eventually. But first you need to suffer.
Regina Mills: Listening to you has been enough suffering for all of us. That's right. You wanted to see your Queen? Well, my dears. Here - she - is!

Regina Mills: You here to finish the job?
Mr. Gold: No, no, no. You're safe from me.
Regina Mills: I feel so relieved.
Mr. Gold: I made a promise to someone that I won't kill you.
Regina Mills: Who could elicit that from you?
Mr. Gold: Belle.
Regina Mills: She's alive?
Mr. Gold: You are... a dreadful liar.
Regina Mills: I could've killed her, but I didn't.
Mr. Gold: Yeah, you did much worse than that. You kept her alive, so you could kill her when it suited you - a fate worse than death.

[Mr. Gold is marking Regina with a medallion]
Regina Mills: Is that...?
Mr. Gold: Yes, dearie. The one thing no one can escape. Destiny. And I promise, yours is particularly unpleasant.

David Nolan: If the curse is broken, why didn't we go back?
Regina Mills: Because there's nothing to go back to. That land is gone.

[Mary Margaret has fended off a soul-sucking wraith as it attacked Regina]
Mary Margaret Blanchard: Did I...
Regina Mills: ...kill it? No, it's regenerating. It'll be back. It doesn't stop until it devours its prey - me.
Emma Swan: So, how do we kill it?
Regina Mills: There's no way. Can't kill something that's already dead.
Emma Swan: Then we have a problem.
David Nolan: No, we don't. Regina does.
Regina Mills: What?
Mary Margaret Blanchard: David?
Emma Swan: You want to let her die?
David Nolan: Why not? Then it goes away. Then we're safe.
Regina Mills: That's quite the example you're setting for your daughter there.
David Nolan: No. You don't get to judge us!

Regina Mills: [to David] You think you're some heroic prince? Please. You're nothing but the son of a shepherd. I should've killed you when I could. And now... now I can!

Regina Mills: I suppose this is your doing.
Mr. Gold: Most things are.


"Once Upon a Time: Ariel (#3.6)" (2013)
Regina Mills: [referring to Ariel] We have history together.
Mr. Gold: Well, that would explain the distasteful look on her face.

Mr. Gold: If you think summoning a giant squid is the answer, I've already tried that.
Regina Mills: You've had fun, haven't you? I have no intention of ordering calamari.

Regina Mills: Focus. Concentrate.
Emma Swan: It's kind of hard when you're talking in my ear.
Regina Mills: And when the wind blows, or it's raining, or someone's shooting arrows at you. Yes, concentration's hard. That's the point.

Regina Mills: You're such a pathetic waste of ability.
Emma Swan: And you're a monster.

Ariel: You tricked me?
Evil Queen: You went to a long-dead octopus for advice and you're going to blame me for your problems?

Evil Queen: Next time you let someone fall to their death, make sure they're actually dead.
Black Knight #1: She looked dead.
Evil Queen: No. Death looks more like this...
[Snaps his neck]

Evil Queen: The only thing worse about telling your prince how you feel and rejecting you is... never telling him at all. Never knowing. Never even having... a chance at true love. That's right, dear. He's gone. Time to swim back home... little mermaid.


"Once Upon a Time: Witch Hunt (#3.13)" (2014)
Wicked Witch: I'm going to take everything away from you.
Regina Mills: It's too late. I've already lost everything that matters.
Wicked Witch: Oh Regina, you haven't lost anything yet.

Regina Mills: I think we know exactly who's taking up residence in our castle. The Wicked Witch.
Grumpy: We talking east or west?
Snow White: Does it matter? Neither one sounds good.
Grumpy: Well, one you drop a house on, The other you toss a bucket of water at.

Snow White: Well, it's the Wicked Witch. She has flying monkeys - who knows what else?
Regina Mills: I don't care if the Lollipop Guild is protecting her.

Wicked Witch: Actually, half-sister, but details, details.
Regina Mills: That's not possible. You're... green.
Wicked Witch: And you're rude.

Regina Mills: You were right. The sleeping curse wasn't the answer. As you said, I just needed to find something to live for.
Robin Hood: And you found it? What?
Regina Mills: The one thing I haven't had in a very long time. Someone to destroy.

Emma Swan: What if we are running the wrong con?
Regina Mills: I'm sorry. I'm not well versed in cons. Unlike you, I never spent time in prison.


Mirror Mirror (2012/I)
The Queen: They're not wrinkles. They're just crinkles.

The Queen: Ten years passed, and Snow White grew older and blossomed. But the kingdom fell into an icy despair, and the queen realized that if she wanted to remain the most beautiful woman in all the land... well... Snow would have to do what snow does best. Snow would have to fall.

The Queen: Brighton, a word, please...
Brighton: Yes, your Majesty.
The Queen: Loose lips, sink ships.
Brighton: Yes, indeed, your Majesty - exactly. Which ship would you like sunk?
The Queen: It's an expression, Brighton!

The Queen: Snow White. Is there a fire?
Snow White: I'm sorry?
The Queen: Is your bedroom on fire? Because I'm searching for an explanation as to why you would be out of your bedroom and in here, and my first guess was fire.
Snow White: I thought maybe I could come to the gala. You know, because today is my eighteenth birthday.
The Queen: Is it now? Oh, my. Oh, my! Snow White, maybe it is time I eased up on you, hmm? After all, you've done nothing to me. Caused no problems. And yet... there is something about you that's so incredibly... irritating. I don't know what it is. The slumped shoulders, the hair, that voice. Mmm. I know what it is! I think it is the hair. I hate your hair. I don't care if it's your one-hundredth birthday. Don't ever sneak into a party like this again.

Brighton: Snow White is dead. One of God's great mysteries is his plan for each and every one of us...
The Queen: Speed it up.
Brighton: Snow White lived, she died, God rest her soul, Amen. There will be a buffet lunch served at two.

The Queen: It would warm my ancient heart if you could accept this modest gift on your wedding day.
[Hands her the apple]
Snow White: That's very kind of you.
The Queen: Just one bite for good fortune. To the fairest of them all.
Snow White: Age before beauty. It's important to know when you've been beaten, yes?
The Queen: So it was Snow White's story after all.


"Once Upon a Time: Wish You Were Here (#6.10)" (2016)
Mr. Gold: Thinking of going for a drive?
Evil Queen: Rumple, I'm in no mood.
Mr. Gold: [seeing the cut on her cheek] Looks like the savior's found a weapon. Now, normally I'd be upset that someone stole from me, but in this case, I think I'll let Ms. Swan's pilfering slide, and I can focus on finding my son. And you can prepare... to die.
[he magically puts a gold bracelet on her wrist]
Mr. Gold: Now, no matter where you go, I can find you. You see, what you did to me, to Belle, was unforgivable. So if, at the end of the day, the savior has yet to dispatch of you, rest assured that after I find my son, I will gladly finish the job.

Captain Hook: What the devil?
Evil Queen: Mm, not the devil. My genie.
Aladdin: I'm sorry.
Evil Queen: I believe I have three wishes.
Aladdin: Go ahead. Wish. They always come with a price.
Evil Queen: [with relish] That they do. Which is why I'm not going to wish something for me.
[to Emma]
Evil Queen: I'm going to give you something. Something you've always wanted, something you confided about to Aladdin.
Emma Swan: You heard us?
Evil Queen: Don't you know by now? I hear everything. You wished you weren't the savior. So that's exactly what you're going to get. Genie of Agrabah, I wish that Emma Swan's wish to have never been the savior... be granted.

[first lines]
Captain Hook: Do you really think you've got something in your vault that can destroy it?
Regina Mills: We don't want to destroy it. We want to understand it.
Captain Hook: It's fated to kill her.
Emma Swan: The hooded figure who uses it is fated to kill me. We need to figure out who that is.
Regina Mills: And then we can worry about destroying things.

David Nolan: That was Leroy. Evil Queen was spotted headed down Main Street.
Regina Mills: All right. Let's go.
Emma Swan: No. You can't. The only way you can hurt her is to hurt yourself, and I can't let you do that.
[Regina moves to argue]
Emma Swan: I've got this. You need to stay here with Henry.

Henry Mills: Where did she go?
Captain Hook: We have no idea, Henry.
Regina Mills: But we're trying to figure that out, right? Because I didn't stay behind for you to screw things up.
David Nolan: Hey, take it easy on us. It was the queen.
Regina Mills: I know who it was. Maybe use some of that defensive energy to figure out where she is! You're her father. You must have some idea.
David Nolan: Yeah, I am her father. That doesn't mean I know everything. What about you, Hook? You live with her now. Did she give you any ideas?
Captain Hook: If I had an idea, don't you think I'd have bloody well mentioned it by now?
David Nolan: How do you share a home with someone and not know their secrets?
Captain Hook: Because we don't stand around and talk about what happens when a bloody genie appears, mate!


"Once Upon a Time: The Evil Queen (#2.20)" (2013)
Evil Queen: I don't understand them. I offer these peasants a fortune; and still they protect Snow White. Why are they loyal to her and not me, hm? I am their Queen.
Rumplestiltskin: You did just slaughter an entire village. Maybe that's why they call you the "Evil Queen".
Evil Queen: But I am not evil. They call me that because of her. She's the evil one.
Rumplestiltskin: They're her people, dearie. You're gonna have to be content with their fear. They'll never love you.

[on the market, Carny is presenting an effigy of the Evil Queen with a big red heart on its chest]
Evil Queen: [in disguise] That... that-that's the Queen.
Carny: The Evil Queen. Step right up and sink an arrow into her heart!
Evil Queen: Tha-that's not right.
Carny: Well, it's fixed, actually. You... you can't hit the Queen in the heart. Because she ain't got one!

[Snow White tells the disguised Queen how she once was saved by a stranger - Regina herself - from the brink of death]
Snow White: She risked her own life. It changed me. My mother always told me to keep goodness in my heart, and this woman proved that she was right. - You OK?
Evil Queen: I'm good, I'm listening. - It "changed" you?
Snow White: Yes. It taught me that there can be this genuine, selfless connection between people, even strangers.

Evil Queen: You want to hear you were right, is that it, hm? Well, you were right.
Rumplestiltskin: Oh, I like that. Right about what?
Evil Queen: They'll never love me.
Rumplestiltskin: So sad; and yet... so true.

Evil Queen: The Queen is dead. Long live... the Evil Queen.


"Once Upon a Time: The Stable Boy (#1.18)" (2012)
[Regina just learned that she had essentially lost her lover Daniel because of young Snow's gossip]
Regina: You knew the King was travelling through our land, didn't you? That steed with Snow on it... didn't go wild on its own. Did it?
Cora: I have no idea what you're saying.
[Regina just smiles knowingly and walks off]
Regina: [under her breath] I should've let her die on that horse!

[Mary Margaret is to be tried for murder]
Emma Swan: Mary Margaret is a good person. She doesn't deserve this.
Regina Mills: Ms. Blanchard is a liar and a murderer. No matter what accusations you throw my way, that won't change. She's going to pay for what she's done. That woman has destroyed the last life she is ever going to destroy.

Regina Mills: We got her, Daniel. We got her.

Regina Mills: The trial starts tomorrow, and it won't be a long one. And you'll be sent out of Storybrooke for good, and I will never have to see you again. Oh, I want to enjoy this while I still can.
Mary Margaret Blanchard: Enjoy what?
Regina Mills: Justice.
Mary Margaret Blanchard: Justice? Watching an innocent suffer?
Regina Mills: You've always seen yourself that way, haven't you? Innocent.
Mary Margaret Blanchard: [crying] I am innocent! I don't know what this is about, I don't know what I ever did to you, but whatever it was, Regina... I'm sorry. I truly am.
Regina Mills: Apology not accepted.
Mary Margaret Blanchard: Please. Don't do this to me. I don't deserve this. I did not kill Kathryn!
Regina Mills: Oh, I know. But you do deserve this.

Regina: [Regina finds out that Snow White had betrayed her secret] I should have let her died on that horse.


"Once Upon a Time: True North (#1.9)" (2012)
Evil Queen: What are you doing in my forest?

Evil Queen: No matter what you do, no matter how you're tempted - don't... eat... anything!

Evil Queen: I would have gone gravy.
[as the blind witch burns in the oven]

Evil Queen: [observing Snow White in her mirror] Now she's cavorting with dwarves? Hm... When did that happen?

Evil Queen: I offered your children everything, whatever their hearts desired; and they still chose uncertainty because of their blind faith in you. Tell me why. Hm? Why did your children refuse me?
The Woodcutter: Because we're a family. And family always finds one another.


Snow White (1987)
Evil Queen: [singing in Asian accent] If you have lovely hair, you may want a comb in there. Painted bright, mother-of-pearl, just the thing for a lovely girl.

Evil Queen: A-ha! The Poison Cookbook!

Snow White: [seeing the poisoned comb in a mirror] I've seen that comb somewhere before!
Evil Queen: [as she shoves the comb into Snow White's hair, which sends her into a deep sleep] But you'll *never* see it again!
[cackles]

Evil Queen: This time I'll take care of her myself!


"Once Upon a Time: Quite a Common Fairy (#3.3)" (2013)
Tinker Bell: Did you ever go back and find him? The man with the lion tattoo?
Regina Mills: No.
Tinker Bell: Unreal. Do you know how selfish that is?
Regina Mills: It's a lot of things. But how was it selfish?
Tinker Bell: Because you didn't just ruin your life. You ruined his.

Regina Mills: Okay, you wanna kill me? I can make it easier.
[Regina rips out her own heart]
Tinker Bell: What do you-?
Regina Mills: You wanna kill me? Well don't let the poison do it. You should do it. Go ahead. Crush it!
Tinker Bell: You think I won't take it?
Regina Mills: No, I'm counting on it. Show me who you are, Tinker Bell.
Tinker Bell: Gladly.

[Tinker Bell is threatening to kill Regina]
Regina Mills: How the hell did you get like this?
Tinker Bell: I met *you*.

Regina Mills: I was afraid. I didn't... You said I could let go of the anger that was weighing me down. And suddenly it felt like without it, I would just... float away. That anger was all I had. What would I be without it?
Tinker Bell: Happy.
Regina Mills: [shakes her head] Weak.
Tinker Bell: And look what good it did you - that "strength" you gained; 'cause I'm holding your heart in my hand, and I'm not hearing *one* reason not to squeeze it into ash.
Regina Mills: All right, you want a reason? Here you go. You think *I* was afraid? You think *I* did the wrong thing? Well, fairy, right now you're making the same choice. I picked revenge over hope, and you're holding the result - a small, hard, dark heart. If you make the same choice I did, then what you're looking at is your own future.


"Once Upon a Time: Fruit of the Poisonous Tree (#1.11)" (2012)
Regina Mills: [to Emma] You're not thinking about Henry or his safety. Just ways around me.

Regina Mills: You see me as a villain, Ms. Swan. But that's just your perception, and you're wrong. Learn your place in this town, or soon enough, you won't be in it.

Evil Queen: No matter how hard I try to please the king... he will never love me the way he loved his first wife. I'm trapped by the memory of the life they used to share.
Genie: I know about being trapped, more than anyone. Maybe this will lift your spirits.
[he gives her a mirror]
Genie: So you... can see yourself... the way I see you.
Evil Queen: And how do you see me?
Genie: As the fairest in all the land.

Evil Queen: Well, looks like you got your wish. You *will* be with me - forever.
[after the genie gets trapped inside the Queen's mirror]


"Once Upon a Time: Hat Trick (#1.17)" (2012)
Evil Queen: I have a job for you.
The Mad Hatter: I don't do that anymore.
Evil Queen: Yes, I heard you hung up your hat. Why? Is it because of your sweet daughter Grace?
The Mad Hatter: Because of my work, she lost her mother. I don't want her to lose her father, too.
Evil Queen: So now you're foraging for fungus. What kind of future does your daughter have here with you? Do this one last favor for me, and you can give her the life she deserves.
The Mad Hatter: That's why I'm staying. You don't abandon family. *That's*... what she deserves.

Evil Queen: There's nothing more important than family.

Evil Queen: You were right, Jefferson. You don't abandon family.

Regina Mills: What is she doing here?
Mr. Gold: She came back.
Regina Mills: You said this was going to work. That she'd take the key, that she'd go.
Mr. Gold: And she did. But it seems that Ms. Swan is rather more resourceful than we thought. Fear not, Your Majesty. Ms. Blanchard's still guilty of murder. You may yet get what you want.
Regina Mills: Oh, I better. The only reason I made a deal with you, Gold, is because I wanted results.
Mr. Gold: And results you shall have. See you at the arraignment.


"Once Upon a Time: Skin Deep (#1.12)" (2012)
Mr. Gold: You know what I want. What is it you want?
Regina Mills: I want you to answer one question. And answer it simply. What's your name?
Mr. Gold: It's Mr. Gold.
Regina Mills: Your real name.
Mr. Gold: Every moment I've spent on this earth, that's been my name.
Regina Mills: But what about moments spent elsewhere?
Mr. Gold: [blinks] What are you asking me?
Regina Mills: I think you know. If you want me to return what's yours, tell me... your name!
Mr. Gold: [stares at her, then smiles wryly] Rumplestiltskin!

Mr. Gold: So. Now that we're being honest with each other, let's remember how things used to be, shall we? And don't let these bars fool you, dear. I'm the one with the power around here. I'm gonna be out of here in no time, and nothing between us will change.
Regina Mills: We shall see.

Evil Queen: True love's kiss will break any curse.

Evil Queen: The place is looking dusty, Rumple. You should get a new girl.


"Once Upon a Time: Quiet Minds (#3.15)" (2014)
Regina Mills: I didn't catch your name.
Robin Hood: Robin of Locksley, at your service.
Regina Mills: The thief?
Robin Hood: Well, as were tossing labels around, aren't you technically known as "The Evil Queen?"
Regina Mills: I prefer "Regina".

Robin Hood: [Holding up a bottle of whiskey] What about this? Is this magical?
Regina Mills: Not exactly. But it is a liquid that can conjure courage, give strength, or even act as a love potion of sorts. It's called whiskey, and no, it's not magical... especially the next day.

Regina Mills: A good witch covers her tracks, but a better one can uncover them.

Robin Hood: Apologies, m'lady. I thought you were the Wicked Witch.
Regina Mills: And I thought you were a flying monkey.


"Once Upon a Time: The Cricket Game (#2.10)" (2013)
Evil Queen: Leaving the battle so soon?
Snow White: The battle's over, Regina. Our army is too great. You can't win.
Evil Queen: Well, that all depends on your definition of victory.

Snow White: I offer you parley - to negotiate the terms of your surrender.
Evil Queen: *My* surrender? Fair enough. My terms are quite simple: your death!

Evil Queen: I know I'm being judged for my past - a past where I've caused pain; a past where I've inflicted misery; a past where I've... even brought death. When I... look back at everything I've done, I want you all to know what I feel. And that is... regret. Regret that I was not able to cause more pain... inflict more misery, and bring about more death! And above all else, with every ounce of my being, I regret that I was not able to kill... Snow White!

Evil Queen: That's impossible.
Snow White: No. That's magic.


"Once Upon a Time: And Straight on 'til Morning (#2.22)" (2013)
[the device to destroy Storybrooke has been activated]
Emma Swan: I can feel it. It's like the oxygen's being sucked out of the air.
Regina Mills: Not the oxygen. The magic.

Regina Mills: You were right, you know. Everything that's happening, it's my fault. I created this device. It's only fitting that it takes my life.
Emma Swan: What am I supposed to tell Henry?
Regina Mills: Tell him that in the end, it wasn't too late for me to do the right thing.
Emma Swan: Regina, please.
Regina Mills: Everyone looks at me as the Evil Queen - including my son. I may die as Regina.

Regina Mills: What are you doing here?
Henry Mills: You were willing to die to save us. That makes you a hero. And now we're gonna be heroes.

Regina Mills: I love you, Henry. I only wish I was strong enough to stop all this. I'm just not.
Emma Swan: You may not be strong enough, but maybe *we* are!


"The Charmings: The Charming's Buy a Car (#1.4)" (1987)
Queen Lillian White: Why did I have to wake up? I should never have got out of bed. I was having such lovely nightmares!

Queen Lillian White: Oh, you're kissing, how lovely! Do you know how many germs there are in the human mouth?

Eric Charming: Lillian, guess what I'm getting Snow for our anniversary.
Queen Lillian White: A muzzle?

Snow White Charming: Now, what would you have done in The Enchanted Forest, say, if peddler Tupper had cheated you?
Eric Charming: Well, he never would have. The town crier would have spread the word and no one would ever again buy Tupper's wares.
Queen Lillian White: Tupper's wares! I always hated his parties!
The Mirror: But the food was so fresh.


"Once Upon a Time: Into the Deep (#2.8)" (2012)
[Regina has warned Mr. Gold that Cora is on her way to Storybrooke]
Regina Mills: And I don't think I need to remind you how most unpleasant that would be for both of us.
Mr. Gold: For you. I can handle Cora.
Regina Mills: That's not how she tells the story.
Mr. Gold: I won in the end.
Regina Mills: Maybe. But there's a big difference this time. This time, you have someone you care about. This time, you have a weakness.
Belle: I-I'm sorry, who... who is this woman?
Mr. Gold: Someone you'll never meet.

[David has decided to visit the fiery room himself]
Regina Mills: *You're* going to this Netherworld?
David Nolan: I faced you. How bad could it be?

[Regina is preparing a potion]
Henry Mills: Smells funny.
Regina Mills: I know, sweetheart. It's a curse. It's not meant to be pleasant.

Henry Mills: It should be me. I can go in there without a curse and still come back.
Regina Mills: Henry, David and I have many differences. But on this, we agree. We won't let you risk your safety. It's just not worth it.
Henry Mills: It is to me. He won't wake up.
Regina Mills: Unless he succeeds. And if there's one thing I know about your grandparents... they always find each other.


"Once Upon a Time: The Heart is a Lonely Hunter (#1.7)" (2011)
[Graham has had a troubling vision in his sleep]
Regina Mills: Go back to sleep, Graham. It was only a dream.
Sheriff Graham: It didn't feel like a dream. It felt like a memory.

Evil Queen: I always felt there were two kinds of people. Wolves and sheep - those who kill and those who get killed.

Evil Queen: I wanted a heart. And a heart I shall have.

The Huntsman: What are you gonna do to me?
Evil Queen: You're now mine. My pet. And this is your cage. From this moment forward, you will do everything that I say, and if you ever disobey me, if you ever try to run away, all I have to do is squeeze. Guards! Your life is now in my hands... forever.
[to guards]
Evil Queen: Take him to my bed chamber.


"Once Upon a Time: The Heart of the Truest Believer (#3.1)" (2013)
Regina Mills: We don't have to do it this way. I can fix the Jolly Roger. My magic is powerful enough. We can execute the pirate's plan.
Emma Swan: Sneak attack? Let's not be naive. Save your magic. We'll need it later, because Pan already knows we're here. It's time we stopped running. Gold was right. This land is run on belief. All of us have been too busy being at each other's throats to be believers. I was as wrong as anyone else. It's time for all of us to believe - not in magic, but in each other.
Regina Mills: You wanna be friends? After everything that's happened between all of us?
Emma Swan: I don't want or expect that. I know there's a lot of history here and a lot of hate.
Captain Hook: Actually, I quite fancy you from time to time. When you're not yelling at me.

Captain Hook: The irony...
Regina Mills: What irony?
Captain Hook: I spent more time than I care to remember trying to leave this place and to kill Rumplestiltskin. And here I am, sailing right back into its heart with him as my guest of honor. It's not quite the happy ending I was hoping for.
Regina Mills: Greg Mendell said something funny to me. He said I'm a villain. And that villains don't get happy endings. Do you believe that?
Captain Hook: I hope not... or we wasted our lives.

Mary Margaret Blanchard: Bring back the mermaid.
Regina Mills: And what, you'll win her over with your rainbow kisses and unicorn stickers?

Mary Margaret Blanchard: Threatening her isn't the way to motivate her.
Regina Mills: Well I'm all out of fish food.


The Brothers Grimm (2005)
Mirror Queen: Who's the fairest of them all, now?

Mirror Queen: He's dying Jacob.
Jacob Grimm: Leave him alone!
Mirror Queen: Because of you. Can you save him? Do you have your magic beans? Because I do.

Mirror Queen: Truth is much more terrible than fiction.


The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016)
Ravenna: Are you ready huntsman?
The Huntsman: Aye.

Ravenna: You are my weakness.

Ravenna: That's why I'm stronger.


"The Charmings: Incredible Shrinking Prince (#1.5)" (1987)
Queen Lillian White: Well, I've got to find a way to make some money. I couldn't find the goose that lays the golden eggs, I can't spin straw into gold - and where's Midas when you need him?
The Mirror: Selling mufflers.

Queen Lillian White: Double, double, toil and trouble. Wilma, Fred and Barney Rubble!

The Mirror: [Lillian conjures up counterfeit cash] Lillian, this is not what I meant when I said you should make some money.
Queen Lillian White: What do you think?
The Mirror: [the mirror studies a bill] Hmmmm... Well, for starters it should be George Washington or Alexander Hamilton, not George Hamilton!


"Once Upon a Time: Snow Falls (#1.3)" (2011)
Regina Mills: Do you know what insubordination means? It means you're grounded.

Regina Mills: [to Emma] And since I clearly can't keep you away from my son, I guess I'm just gonna have to keep my son away from you. Enjoy my shirt, because that's all you're getting.

Regina Mills: All this has reminded me of something oh so very important: how grateful I am to have Henry. Because not having someone... well... that's the worst curse imaginable.


"Once Upon a Time: The Return (#1.19)" (2012)
Regina Mills: You broke our deal.
Mr. Gold: I broke one deal in my life, dear, and it certainly wasn't this one.
Regina Mills: Kathryn was supposed to die and Mary Margaret was to get the blame!
Mr. Gold: Yeah, murder seems so much worse here, though, doesn't it? You can't just turn someone into a snail and then step on them, can you?

Regina Mills: You created the curse for me, the curse that brought us here and built all this.
Mr. Gold: Yes, about time you said thank you.
Regina Mills: Why did you do it?
Mr. Gold: Well, you're a smart woman, Your Majesty. Figure it out!

[last lines]
Emma Swan: I know you're behind all this. I understand that you own the game, and that you've set the board, so that no one else can win. But I am about to start playing an entirely different game. I don't care about what happens to you. I don't care about what happens to me. All I care about is what happens to my kid. And you are going to leave him alone.
Regina Mills: Am I?
Emma Swan: Uh-Uh, I'm talking. You're a sociopath, lady. You tried to take away someone that I love. And now... I'm gonna take away someone you love. I'm taking back my son!


"Once Upon a Time: Desperate Souls (#1.8)" (2012)
[Emma has criticized Regina's appointment of Sidney Glass as the new sheriff]
Regina Mills: 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]
Sidney Glass: I am.

Regina Mills: [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]
Regina Mills: Enjoy that!


"Once Upon a Time: The Queen Is Dead (#2.15)" (2013)
[Mary Margaret is concerned about Regina turning to her evil ways again]
Mary Margaret Blanchard: Why? Regina, why go back to being this way after how hard you tried?
Regina Mills: And what did it get me? Dinner with a bunch of hypocrites who pretend they'll forgive me, when, in their hearts, they know... they never will.

Regina Mills: I was always the Queen. It was you who added 'Evil' to my name.

Mary Margaret Blanchard: Listening to your mother is a mistake, Regina.
Regina Mills: [sarcastic] Because listening to you'll work out so much better!
Mary Margaret Blanchard: She doesn't care about Henry. All she wants is power.
Regina Mills: Power is how you get things.
Mary Margaret Blanchard: She doesn't care about you.
Regina Mills: Really? And what would you know about mothers?


"Once Upon a Time: A Land Without Magic (#1.22)" (2012)
Regina Mills: Magic here is unpredictable.

Emma Swan: [attacking Regina] You did this!
Regina Mills: What the hell are you doing? Stop this! My son...
Emma Swan: Is sick because you! That apple turnover you gave me, he ate it!
Regina Mills: What? It was meant for you.
Emma Swan: It's true, isn't it?
Regina Mills: What are you talking about?
Emma Swan: It's true, isn't it? All of it.
Regina Mills: Yes.
Emma Swan: I was leaving town. Why couldn't you just leave things alone?
Regina Mills: Because as long as you're alive, Henry will never be mine.
Emma Swan: He'll never be anyone's unless you fix this.

Regina Mills: There's one other person in this town who knows about this, who knows about magic.
Emma Swan: Mr. Gold.
Regina Mills: Actually, he goes by Rumpelstiltskin.


Snow White (1995) (V)
Narrator: Sadly, shortly after Snow White was born, her mother, the good and noble queen, died of a mysterious illness, and the king soon remarried. This new queen was truly beautiful, but her beauty went no deeper than her skin. She was a wicked and cruel woman, who was only happy when she was looking into one of her many mirrors. And when the good king perished while fighting a war in a faraway land, the new queen did not shed a single tear. For now she could tax the people heavily, and use the money to buy al sorts of lotions and potions that would maintain her great beauty. And the people of the kingdom became sad and frightened. The queen had many, many mirrors, but by far her favorite was a magic mirror, which always spoke the total and absolute truth. For many years, several times each day, the vain queen would look into her magic mirror, and ask the same question.
[repeated line]
The Evil Queen: Magic mirror, tell me do. Tell your mistress; tell her true. Answer me, obey my call: who's the loveliest of all?
Narrator: And each time, the magic mirror would answer exactly the same way.
The magic mirror: The answer, queen, is crystal clear. You are most lovely far and near.
Narrator: And then, one fateful day, the queen received an answer of a different sort. Yes, a very different sort indeed.

The magic mirror: Her skin is pure as a brand-new snow. Her eyes set people's hearts aglow. Lips red as blood, hair black as night, the loveliest is: the fair Snow White.
The Evil Queen: What? How can this be? *I* am the most beautiful woman in the land. I always have been and I always shall be. Treacherous mirror! How dare you say Snow White is lovelier than I!
The magic mirror: Your loveliness is great, 'tis true, but there is one more fair than you. For Snow White's beauty does begin where yours does stop: 'tis from within.

The Evil Queen: Do you understand?
The huntsman: [slumping] Yes, Your Highness, I understand.
The Evil Queen: Good. Because if for some reason you should fail, then tonight I shall be dining upon head of huntsman.


"Once Upon a Time: Selfless, Brave and True (#2.18)" (2013)
Regina Mills: [to Mary Margaret, at Granny's] If I were you, I'd try the fish special. It's right up your alley: blackened sole.

Regina Mills: [producing a key chain] You were just a boy when you gave this to me. Now look at you, all grown up. No wonder I didn't recognize you.
Greg Mendell: Yeah, but I, I recognized you, because you look exactly the same, Regina. It's as if no time has passed for you.
Regina Mills: A monthly juice cleanse. Does wonders for the skin.

Regina Mills: I'll let Granny know that you'll be checking out tomorrow.
Greg Mendell: Or what?
Regina Mills: Contrary to what you might think, people *can* just disappear.


"Once Upon a Time: That Still Small Voice (#1.5)" (2011)
[Archie has a disagreement with Regina about how to deal with Henry's fantasies]
Regina Mills: Sometimes I think you've forgotten: you work for me! You're an employee, and I can fire you. This is my town. You will lose your office, lose your house. I can cut you down to size until you're a tiny, shrunken little creature; and this...
[holds up Archie's umbrella]
Regina Mills: ...will be the only roof over your damn head.
Archie Hopper: What would you have me do?
Regina Mills: You take that delusion out of my son's head... and you crush it!

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.

Archie Hopper: I'm gonna continue to treat Henry, and I'm gonna do it my own way.
Regina Mills: My relief at his safety hasn't changed a thing, Dr. Hopper. You will do as I say, or you...
Archie Hopper: Or what? You'll ruin my life? You'll do your worst? Because I will always do my best.
Regina Mills: Don't test me.
Archie Hopper: Oh, I don't need to; because you're gonna leave me alone and let me do my work, in peace.
Regina Mills: Really? Why is that?
Archie Hopper: Because someday, Madam Mayor, you may find yourself in a custody battle. And d'you know how the court determines who is a fit parent? They consult an expert - particularly one... who has treated the child. So, I suggest that you think about that, and you allow me to do my work... and let me do it the way my conscience tells me to.


"Once Upon a Time: Queen of Hearts (#2.9)" (2012)
Evil Queen: You remember Claude?
Captain Hook: Can't say that I do.
Evil Queen: You killed him in the cell block.
Captain Hook: Ah, yes. I didn't recognize him without my hook in his neck.

Evil Queen: [speaking to the "dead" Cora] I'm sorry, Mother. Without you, I never would have become the person I am now. But I had no choice. I had to do this. After you killed Daniel, you told me something I've never forgotten. Love - is - weakness. Well, Mother, you are my weakness. Because I love you.

Emma Swan: Um... your mom, she's, uh... she's... a piece of work, you know?
Regina Mills: Indeed I do.


"Once Upon a Time: The Price of Gold (#1.4)" (2011)
Emma Swan: If you were wondering, I did find a place here in town.
Regina Mills: I know - with Miss Blanchard. How long is your lease? Oh, wait, you don't have one. You see my point? In order for something to grow, Miss Swan, it needs roots. And you... don't have any.

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


"The Charmings: Modern Romance (#1.3)" (1987)
Luther: You are an evil, vicious, spiteful old woman.
Queen Lillian White: I am not old!

The Mirror: You poison people.
Queen Lillian White: Tell me that's not interesting!


"Once Upon a Time: Second Star to the Right (#2.21)" (2013)
Regina Mills: Whatever they're offering you, it's not worth it.
Hook: Well, considering they're offering to help me kill Rumplestiltskin, I'd say it is.
Regina Mills: And you actually trust them? You don't even know who you're working for.

Regina Mills: [weakly] You have no idea who you're dealing with.
Greg Mendell: Actually, no, you have no idea who you are dealing with.
Regina Mills: A couple of fools in over their heads who go around stealing magic.
Tamara: [chuckles] Stealing magic? That's what you think we're here to do?
Greg Mendell: We're not here to steal magic. We're here to destroy it.
Tamara: Magic does not belong in this world. It's unholy. We're here to cleanse this land of it.


"The Charmings: The Mirror Cracked (#1.2)" (1987)
Snow White Charming: Mother, aren't you going to play with us?
Queen Lillian White: I'd rather be burned at the stake!

Queen Lillian White: I just wanted to say I'm sorry I ruined your party, and as peace offering I've baked you a pie.
Eric Charming: Oh Lillian, that's very thoughtful of you. We accept your apology. And now let's all try and think of this as a new beginning in our family relationship.
Snow White Charming: Eric! This is an apple pie!
Eric Charming: Is this pie poisoned?
Queen Lillian White: Try it and find out.

[Cora pushes the speaker off the table]
Regina Mills: Mother!
Cora: I don't like what that enchanted box was saying. I'm not... I'm not wicked.
Regina Mills: It's not an enchanted box, it's a phone tap.

[Regina catches Mary Margaret carrying Cora's heart in a box]
Regina Mills: You have no right to be here. And you have no right to *that*!
Mary Margaret Blanchard: I was going to give it to you.
Regina Mills: What?
Mary Margaret Blanchard: She can't love you, you know. She doesn't have her heart. With it, maybe she can. But that's why you've never felt she loved you. She doesn't have her heart. But I do.
Regina Mills: You're doing this for me?
Mary Margaret Blanchard: Think about it. What would happen if Cora had her heart back, back inside her?
Regina Mills: She told me she took it out to protect herself.
Mary Margaret Blanchard: And did it work? The person she was before, do you think that person survived? She can't love, so she can't love you.
Regina Mills: She always wanted the best for me. That's love.
Mary Margaret Blanchard: Imagine real love. You'd have a mother, and a start on making a family Henry could be a part of. Or you could have her be the Dark One. The choice is yours.


"Once Upon a Time: Lacey (#2.19)" (2013)
[Regina is surprised to hear that Mr. Gold is Henry's grandfather]
Mr. Gold: Trust me, dearie, it was as much a shock to me as it is to you.
Regina Mills: No. You must have known. When I adopted him, it was you who procured him for me. You expect me to believe that that was a coincidence?
Mr. Gold: No, not coincidence. Fate. Apparently, fate has a sense of humor.

[Mr. Gold tries to find a way to bring back Belle's memories]
Regina Mills: Finding a way isn't the problem, dear. We both know what is.
Mr. Gold: Yeah, true love's kiss.
Regina Mills: And I don't think our new resident feels the same way about you as you do her.
Mr. Gold: Then I'll make her!
Regina Mills: Well, there's the charm that should easily woo a lovely young lady. She'll most certainly fall in love with you at first sight. Oh, wait, that didn't happen, did it?
Mr. Gold: She will, or I promise you, there will be suffering.
Regina Mills: Finally something we both can agree on.


"The Charmings: The Witch Is of Van Oaks (#2.3)" (1987)

"Once Upon a Time: A Curious Thing (#3.19)" (2014)
Robin Hood: Where I come from, a simple "thank you" will suffice.

Evil Queen: What do you see in me?
Robin Hood: Evidently the same thing you see in me. A second chance

[to Terra, about killing Snow White]
Evil Queen: If you succeed, I will ask the Mirror where you might find this Master Xehanort.

Evil Queen: Oh. Why thank you, my pet.
[Takes the apple]


Snow White and the Three Stooges (1961)
Queen: [to Count Oga] You needn't make it sound as if I enjoy annihilating children. I only do it when it's... unavoidable.

[At the castle, the Queen stormed into Count Oga's laboratory with the chest box]
Queen: Traitor! You shall be hanged, drawn and quartered!
Count Oga: Aye, your majesty? What have I done?
Queen: Snow White is still alive!
Count Oga: Impossible.
Queen: My mirror has just told me... And my mirror never LIES!
Count Oga: But, you have a heart to prove it.
Queen: [looks at the chest box] This? This is the heart of a pig!
[throws the chest, Oga drops the potion and catches it, crashes and she comes to him]
Queen: SNOW WHITE IS STILL ALIVE!
Count Oga: Then, Hordred has betrayed us both.

Regina Mills: I always believe that evil isn't born. It's made.

"Once Upon a Time: Going Home (#3.11)" (2013)
Henry Mills: I thought I was alone. I thought you didn't love me. But I was wrong.
Regina Mills: Henry. I was wrong, too. It wasn't your fault. It's mine. I cast the curse out of vengeance. And I'm... I'm a villain. You heard Mr. Gold. Villains don't get happy endings.
Henry Mills: You're not a villain. You're my Mom.


"Once Upon a Time: Think Lovely Thoughts (#3.8)" (2013)
Regina Mills: You better come through, Gold, or I'll make whatever Pan has planned for you look like child's play. You understand me?

"The Charmings: The Man Who Came to Dinner (#2.13)" (1988)

The Mirror: Give it a rest, Lillian! I'm trying to plan a little vacation here yet you persist in asking me this same stupid question over and over and over and over! Don't you ever get tired of it?
Queen Lillian White: No.
The Mirror: Okay, you want to know who's fairer than you?
[Picks up phone book]
The Mirror: Now, this is just the greater Los Angeles area...

"Once Upon a Time: In the Name of the Brother (#2.12)" (2013)
[Regina is cross with Cora for framing her for Archie Hopper's alleged murder]
Regina Mills: Come with me. We're going to town.
Cora: It's the middle of the night.
Regina Mills: I don't care. We'll wake them up - Emma and Henry and the two idiots, and you can tell them how you lied. You owe me that.
Cora: And then you'll let us start over?
Regina Mills: I don't see that happening, Mother. But I am- I *was* trying so hard to be worthy of Henry. And I deserve the same thing from you.

"Once Upon a Time: Child of the Moon (#2.7)" (2012)
