Evil Queen: Oh, I haven’t come here to ruin anything. On the contrary, dear. I’ve come here 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, but 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. Out of your suffering will rise my victory. I shall destroy your happiness if it is the last thing I do.

Regina: Why should I believe anything you say?
Zelena: Well, you shouldn’t. It’s a lot to swallow which is why I’ve brought a gift to help.
Regina: I don’t want a gift from you.
Zelena: Ah, but you shall have it. You see, my gift to you is this sad, sad day. Use it to dig into our past,Regina. You need to learn the truth, and you must believe it. And then, meet me on main street tonight…say sundown.
Regina: And then what?
Zelena: Then I’ll destroy you.
Regina: This isn’t the wild west.
Zelena: No, dear, it’s the wicked west.
