Trivia

When Emma wakes up in the jail cell, the song Leroy is whistling is "whistle while you work." from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937). Leroy's fairy tale counterpart is Grumpy, one of the seven dwarfs. See more »

Goofs

When Emma and Henry drive past the "Welcome to Storybrooke" sign, the rain is quite obviously falling on a narrow strip of road around the sign, and not falling on the road just ahead of the sign. See more »

Great pilot

I love when a show grabs my interest from the very first episode & Once was a great example of that. Great start to season 1
