Did You Know?
When the evil queen is telling Rumplestiltskin about Belle, in the background is a gold scythe just like the one used in season 7 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer
(1997). On the other side of the room, the wizard's hat from The Sorceror's Apprentice segment of _"Fantasia" (1940)_ sits atop a pedestal. See more
In Once Upon a Time: The Price of Gold
(2011), it is established that Ashley is 19; however, in this episode she is drinking at a bar (21 in Maine, just like the rest of the U.S.). This may also be true for Ruby, who looks young, though her age has only been previously established to be 17+ since she serves liquor in a restaurant. See more
You were going to tell me about your son.
I'll tell you what. I'll make you a deal. Go to town, and fetch me some straw. When you return, I'll share my tale.
But... Town? Y-you trust me to come back?
Oh, no. I expect I'll never see you again.
The opening sequence gives a hint to the episodes main story line by showing a character or event happening in the dark forest underneath the title. See more
