SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. The Blanchard loft's door. Mr. Gold knocks on the door with his cane. Emma Swan opens the door.
Mr. Gold: Ready to go, Miss Swan?
Emma: Almost. (Henry Mills approaches.)
Henry: Do you think it will be cold where we're going or warm?
Emma: I think layers are always a good idea.
Mr. Gold: I thought the terms of our agreement were quite clear. You owe me a favor - you alone.
Emma: I'm not leaving Henry here with Cora lurking about, so either we both go or we both stay. (Mr. Gold thinks)
Mr. Gold: Then we'll have to purchase another plane ticket, won't we?
Emma: (taken aback) Wait. We're flying?
Mr. Gold: Don't worry, I'm covering expenses, even the new ones. (Mary Margaret Blanchard approaches Henry and helps him with his jacket.)
David Nolan: (coming down the stairs) You're a real gentleman, aren't you? (David gives a bag to Emma and walks over to Gold) All right, Gold. You're going out there with my family. Just know if anything happens to them—
Mr. Gold: Then you'll what? Cross the town line? And David Nolan will hunt me down in his animal rescue van?
David: I'll be devastated. This isn't a threat. It's a request. Take care of them.
Mr. Gold: I promise no harm will come to your family. After all...we have a deal.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Inside a car, Mr. Gold is driving out of town.
Henry: So where are we going?
Mr. Gold: Logan International Airport.
Emma: I think he meant the one after that.
Mr. Gold: Let's just take things one step at a time shall we?
Emma: Do you really think that shawl's gonna work?
Mr. Gold: Well, if it doesn't, and I revert to my cursed self, we're all gonna have some problems. It'll work.
(Mr. Gold's car crosses the town line, and a blue light shimmers over him.)
Mr. Gold: My name is Rumplestiltskin. And we're gonna find my son.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Mary Margaret's Apartment. David is putting on a gun holster.
Mary Margaret: You like the holster, huh?
David: (chuckles) I miss carrying a sword.
Mary Margaret: Well it looks good on you.
David: Come on. Leroy has the dwarves on Cora watch. They've got eyes everywhere, but they could use our help.(He helps Mary Margaret put on her coat.)
Mary Margaret: Really? How hard can it be to find a powerful sorceress in a small town?
David: (He opens the door, and Regina is standing outside it; nearly about to knock.) Apparently not very hard.
Mary Margaret: Regina, you're back.
Regina: I know you think I'm responsible for poor Dr. Hopper's death.
Mary Margaret: You were framed.
Regina: Who would do that?
Mary Margaret: Your mother. She's here.
Regina: Well, that's—that's not possible.
Mary Margaret: When we found a way back, so did she. (Regina sighs.) We were wrong, and we're so sorry.
Regina: I know. But if Cora's here, then we're all in dangerous. Please, you have to let me see my son. I can protect him.
Mary Margaret: He's not here.
David: Mr. Gold asked Emma to help him find his son. They left town about an hour ago with Henry.
Regina: And no one told me?
Mary Margaret: We didn't know where you were. And to be honest, Regina, I don't think Emma has to run anything by you.
Regina: No, I suppose she doesn't. (Regina leaves the apartment.)
Mary Margaret: (She shuts the door.) Well that went well.
David: For her, it doesn't get much better. Come on. Let's go find Cora.
Mary Margaret: Where?
David: No idea. (He hands Mary Margaret her bow and arrow) But I know who to ask.
SCENE: The Storybrooke Dock. Present. David, Mary Margaret and Leroy have just released Hook from the hospital.
Hook: You didn't even ask me about my recovery.
Mary Margaret: How are you feeling, Hook?
Hook: Come closer and feel for yourself.
David: (Pushes Hook backwards) You wanna lose the other hand? Where's the ship? Come on. Archie told us; it's shielded somehow, isn't it... mate?
Hook: Aye. That it is. Follow me. I don't know what you expect to find. Cora won't be there.
David: Maybe she left something behind that will tell us where she went. Let's go.
(David pushes Hook forward)
Leroy: No funny business. I'm watching you, pirate.
Hook: Yes, dwarf. That should deter me from any malfeasance.
Mary Margaret: Oh, don't worry, Leroy. He'll help us.
Hook: What makes you so sure?
Mary Margaret: Because you're a pirate. You know which way the wind blows, and right now, it is gusting towards us.
Hook: Oh, I see where you daughter got her gumption. (Looks at David and smirks) Follow me. (He pushes Leroy aside and climbs the invisible stairs that lead to his ship.)
SCENE: Hook's ship. Present. David is climbing down the stairs that lead onto the main deck.
Leroy: You sailed this ship from our land. Can you sail it back?
Hook: My ship? She's a marvel. Made from enchanted wood. We weathered many a storm together, seeing many strange glittering shores. But to travel between lands, she must go through a portal.
David: Yeah. What do you know about Cora's plans?
Hook: Cora's not the most commutative of lasses. But let me tell you this: whatever malice she has in mind, her weapon of choice is in here. (He taps on something that is covered by a cloth. Leroy removes the cloth from the object to reveal a cage. He looks inside to see the Giant, Anton.)
Mary Margaret: Who's that?
SCENE: Giants' Lair. Past. Anton is running to the dinner table as a bell rings.)
Arlo: Ah, you're late, Tiny.
Abraham: Missed you out in the fields, Tiny.(All the giants begin to snatch food from the center of the table.)
Anton: It's Anton.
Abraham: (laughs) But you're just so damn tiny, Tiny.
Arlo: All right, enough squabbling. Now today we celebrate. After a century of hard labor, the time of the bean harvest has finally arrived. (All the giants cheer, except for Anton)
Anton: (unenthusiastic) Yay.
Arlo: But is a blossom more than its root? Is a harvest more important than a hard day's work? No. Each has value... just as each of us has value. Hear, hear. (All the giants toast except for Anton)
Abraham: Hear, hear.
Unnamed Giant 1: Hear, hear.
Unnamed Giant 2: Hear, hear. (As Anton rises for the toast, a musical clang is heard. A golden harp has dropped from Anton's sleeve.)
Arlo: You've been spending time in the treasure room again, haven't you?
Anton: No. (Arlo stares at him with a look of disbelief.) Maybe. So say that I was. So what?
Arlo: Your fascination with humans and their artifacts is misguided. No good can come of it.
Anton: How can you say that, when you've never even been to their world? And you won't even let any of us go down there.
Arlo: Have you forgotten what the humans did? Why we no longer trade beans with them? They weren't content merely traveling between the realms. They had to conquer and pillage.
Anton: Because a few humans did some bad stuff doesn't make them all evil.
Arlo: They don't abide by the same laws that we do, Anton. We giants foster life. They destroy it. That is why they must never know that we still exist or that we still grow the beans.
Anton: But why do we keep growing them... if nobody ever uses 'em?
Unnamed Giant 1: Hmm.
Arlo: It's what we do.
Anton: We don't do anything with them.
Arlo: It is the labor that makes us who we are, not the fruit that it yields.
Abraham: (Abraham picks up the harp. Anton reaches to get it back, but fails.) What is this? A human toy?
Anton: Put it down.
Abraham: (crushes the harp) Oh. Not much fun, is it?
Arlo: Abraham, that is enough. (Angry, Anton runs runs off.)
Unnamed Giant 2: Tiny, come on.
(Upset, Anton runs towards the beanstalk. He begins to climb down it; descending into the human world.)
SCENE: Hook's ship. Present. Leroy, Mary Margaret, David, and Hook are still staring at the caged Anton.
Leroy: So Cora used magic to make him travel-sized.
Hook: Whatever she intends to do with him, it's important.
David: Oh, I think you know exactly what she intends. You're holding out.
Hook: Well, either have your lovely wife torture it out of me, which I promise will be fun for both— (David grabs Hook by the throat.)
David: Why don't you and I have some fun?
Hook: I don't know what she's planning. Why don't you wake the bloody giant and ask him yourself? (Mary Margaret takes the key to the cage from Hook. She opens the cage)
Mary Margaret: Hey. (Anton wakes up; startled.) It's all right. You're safe now. (Anton climbs out of the cage.) What's your name?
Anton: Anton. Where's that witch?
Mary Margaret: She's gone.
Anton: What did she do? She made me small.
David: (grabbing Anton's shoulder to turn him around) Come on. Let's get you outta here.
Anton: You! Uhh! (he uppercuts David. David goes flying backwards over a railing on deck.)
Mary Margaret: David!
Leroy: (running toward Anton) Hey! Hey, over here, you big—
(He throws Leroy down the stairs of the ship; causing him to hit his head. Anton walks down the stairs. David pulls a gun from his holster, but Anton kicks it away. An arrow whooshes by Anton's shoulder and grabs his attention. He turns to see Mary Margaret pointing a loaded bow at him.)
Mary Margaret: Step away from my husband.
Anton: You may have me outnumbered, but this isn't over. (to David) You think I forgot what you did? I didn't. You'll pay for your evil. I promise you'll pay! (Anton runs off the ship)
SCENE: Storybrooke General Hospital. Present. Belle is sitting in a chair watching television.
Bill Godwin: (on television) Hey there, folks. Bill Godwin here. Be sure to tune in to "Good Morning, Storybrooke" every day at 7:00 AM. And now back to "Expose."
(Ruby enters, carrying a basket.)
(Belle turns toward Ruby. There's a period of silence as Belle wonders what she wants.)
Male Announcer: (on television) Previously on "Expose..."
Ruby: You don't remember me, do you?
Belle: Um... sorry, no I... I don't.
Ruby: (She sets down her basket and sits in a chair next to Belle.) I'm Ruby. (She turns off the TV.) You used to come into my granny's diner a lot before. Anyway, I... thought you could use some comforts from home. (She reaches into her basket and pulls out a book.) You were always telling me about Jules Verne, so I brought you my favorite—"The Mysterious Island."
Belle: (Belle takes the book) Thank you. Well... were we really friends?
Ruby: Yeah, we were.
Belle: Then tell me the truth. Before I was brought here, I was hurt. I was bleeding, and then this man came. And he... he healed me. Then I saw him hold a ball of fire in his hands. How? How is that possible?
Ruby: The nurse said that the tranquilizers can give you wicked nightmares.
Belle: No, I know what I saw. And I don't need any more tranquilizers or—
Belle: Don't call me that. Why does everyone keep calling me that? I don't— (Belle is grabbed by the severe nurse who tries to restrain her.) I'm fine, I don't— (Greg enters in the background; unseen by the others. He stands silently watching the conflict.)
Severe Nurse: Take it easy. Take it easy. (She finally gets Belle back in her chair)
Ruby: Has she been like this the whole time?
Severe Nurse: (She injects Belle with a tranquilizer.) More or less. We've had to keep her heavily sedated. Okay, let's get you back to bed. Now here we go. (She gets Belle to stand.) There. (She begins to lead Belle back to her room.)
Greg: (making his presence known) Everything okay in here?
Ruby: Everything's fine, Mr. Mendell. She's all right. How are you?
Greg: Much improved.
Ruby: Well, then rest up. The sooner you're better, the sooner you can be out of our quite little town.
SCENE: Granny's Diner. Present. Mary Margaret, David, and Leroy are sitting at a booth.
Mary Margaret: David. Did that giant just say he'll make you pay? For what?
David: I have no idea. I've never seen that guy before.
Leroy: Well, he sure knows you.
David: (He thinks for a moment.) No. It's not about me. He just thinks it is.
SCENE: King George's castle. Past. Prince James has a girl on his lap. They are kissing.
Prince James: You are a true wonder.
Girl: I know. (James chuckles. He picks her up and carries her to his bed. King George enters.)
King George: I didn't know you had company, James.
Prince James: Father. This is my father, the king. Father, this is—
King George: I don't care. The kingdom is teetering on bankruptcy. The name of your latest dalliance is of little concern to me.
Girl: Pleasure to meet you, too, your majesty.
King George: Good day.
Prince James: Care for a drink, Father?
King George: There'll be time for that later. Right now there's trouble afoot. I just received word that there's a giant running amok in the outer village.
Prince James: I thought giants were extinct.
Girl: I'd love the chance to battle one.
King George: No. No killing. Not yet, anyway. This giant could be of use to us.
Prince James: Just tell me what needs to be done.
SCENE: Granny's Diner. Present. Mary Margaret and David are sitting the booth. Leroy has gone to the bathroom for a cold towel for his head.
Mary Margaret: Your brother. That's who he thinks you are.
David: It's the only thing that makes sense. (Mary Margaret sighs. David gets up from the booth.) Come on.
Mary Margaret: Where are we going?
David: To find out just what kind of trouble my brother got himself into. Leroy, get your head looked at and gather the dwarves. You need to keep and eye out for this giant.
SCENE: Enchanted Forest. Past. A pub. Anton is looking through the window at the pub's patrons, laughing and having a good time. Feeling very alone, he starts to walk away.
Prince James: (Accompanied by the girl, he calls out to Anton) If you want some ale, you should ask! They'll serve anyone who can pay, my friend. I'm James, Prince of this realm. I wanted to make sure you received a warm welcome.
Anton: I'm Anton. I'm a giant.
Prince James: (laughing) Now I can see that. What brings you to our land?
Anton: I've always been fascinated with your customs. I just wanted to see it for myself.
Prince James: Well, we would be... more than happy to show you around. Of course, there's the matter of your size.
Anton: I'm too small for back home. I'm too big for here.
Girl: Don't despair, Anton. I have something that may help you.
Anton: What is it?
Girl: (She pulls out a magic mushroom.) Magic. A piece of mushroom from a far-off land. I once slayed a jabberwock that was terrorizing a village, and they—they couldn't pay me in gold, so they paid me with this instead. If you eat it, it will change your size. Its effects are temporary, but we have more. (She drops the mushroom into Anton's hand.) I'm pretty sure this one makes you smaller.
Anton: Pretty sure?
Girl: Well, I haven't had the occasion to try it, but the wise woman who gave it to me swore by its power.
Prince James: Go on, Anton. Give it a try.
Anton: I have no way to repay you for your kindness.
Girl: No need. If it makes you happy, that's all the payment that we desire.
Anton: Well, then at least tell me your name.
Girl: Jacqueline. But... most people call me "Jack."
Anton: Nice to meet you, Jack.
SCENE: Land Without Magic. Logan International Airport. Emma, Henry, and Mr. Gold are going through security.
Henry: Have you ever been outside of Storybrooke before, Mr. Gold?
Mr. Gold: No.
Henry: Are you nervous?
Mr. Gold: (holding back anger) No.
Henry: Are you worried about meeting you son?
Mr. Gold: (explodes) No, Henry, I'm fine.
Emma: How about we talk about this later, kid? We're next.
Henry: It must be really hard not to use magic, being like everyone else.
Emma: (to Mr. Gold) You've gotta put your shoes in.
Mr. Gold: How terribly uncivilized. (Henry goes through the metal detector. Mr. Gold puts his shoes in the x-ray machine bin.)
Security Officer: Uh, scarf and the cane go in the basket.
Mr. Gold: What?
Security Officer: Scarf and the cane go in the basket.
Mr. Gold: (to Emma) I can't.
Emma: You have to.
Man Waiting in Line: It ain't rocket science, buddy. You ever been on a plane before?
Mr. Gold: Have you ever been impaled upon a cane before?
Emma: My... father's a little nervous. We're headed to a family reunion. Sorry.
Mr. Gold: Your father?
Emma: (in a lowered voice) Just put your shawl in the bin. I'll help you get through.
Mr. Gold: If I let this go, I could forget who I am.
Emma: I'm not gonna let that happen.
Mr. Gold: (After pausing for a moment to consider what Emma has just said, Mr. Gold let's out a sigh.) Okay. (He puts his cane and shawl in the bin. Immediately, he feels pounding in his head and becomes physically unstable. He manages to make it through the metal detector with Emma close behind. She quickly pulls the shawl from Mr. Gold's bin and places it back around his neck. Emma stares at him with a concerned look; seeking reassurance that he is all right. Though winded, Mr. Gold nods.)
Henry: (unaware of the situation) Guys, there's a Cinnabon's here!
SCENE: Storybrooke Dock. Present. Hook places a Queen of Hearts playing card on the ground. He begins looking around for Cora. Regina appears behind Hook, surprising him.
Regina: Hello, Hook.
Regina: Expecting my mother? The one you were supposed to kill?
Hook: Oh, that. Well, I didn't want to deprive you of a happy reunion.
Regina: Well, it's your lucky day. She and I have made amends.
Hook: And you're here to thank me? How sweet.
Regina: She wants to know if they've found the ship.
Hook: Well, you can tell her she can ask me herself.
Regina: She decided it wouldn't be prudent for her to be out and about.
Hook: Well, then it is my lucky day. And you can tell her they found the ship.
Regina: Did you get her things off it?
Hook: I've been tied up in bed, and not in the good way.
Regina: She needs her things.
Hook: Oh, I'll bet she does. Oh, that's good news then. A giant got loose from the hold.
Regina: (incredulously) You lost a giant?
Hook: Well, a shrunken giant.
Regina: How is that good news?
Hook: Because... when he got free, he took one look at the Prince and became extremely murderous.
Regina: Hmm. A giant in town who wants to kill the Prince. This is just the distraction we need.
Hook: That it is, dear.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Anton is walking in the middle of the street. Cars are beeping and swerving around him.
SCENE: Enchanted Forest. Past. The pub that Anton was examining. Anton, Prince James, and Jack enter. There is laughter and drunkenness of the pub's patrons filling the room.
Prince James: Much better to be on the inside, huh? (Prince James pulls up a chair at a vacant table.) Please You're the guest of honor.
Anton: No fighting for a seat at the table. If my brothers could see me now.
Jack: I'm not so sure about this family of yours, Anton. It doesn't sound like they appreciate you.
Anton: They're not so bad. Except for the... making fun of me. And the pushing me around. And the harsh words. Well, yeah, it's sorta bad.
Prince James: Sometimes you have to leave home to find the people you... truly belong with. Your real family.
Jack: It's like you were always meant to be here, Anton.
Prince James: (patting Anton on the shoulder) Now... make sure our Anton has all that he needs. (Prince James leaves the table.)
Anton: (He sees a harp being played.) I had one of those once. I never knew it made such beautiful music. My brothers are so wrong about humans.
Prince James: (to a man far off at the bar) It's unacceptable. Go back there and tell him what I said. Promise him anything. I don't care.
Anton: (to Jack) Is there a problem?
Jack: He didn't tell you, did he? The royal coffers are empty. James and his father are deeply in debt to a neighboring kingdom.
Anton: I don't understand.
Jack: If James can't pay back what he owes, they'll plunder this realm and burn it to the ground.
Anton: Now I understand.
Jack: It's bad.
Anton: Will the other kingdom only accept gold coins?
Jack: Well, it depends. A magic bean, for instance, would be worth a thousand coins, but you don't have any of those back home... do you?
Anton: No. No beans. We do have treasure. Enough to pay off your debts, I bet.
Jack: You'd help us?
Anton: Without question. If I'm gonna stay here for good, might as well make sure it's a nice kingdom and not, you know... burned to the ground.
Jack: (She chuckles and gives Anton a kiss on the cheek.) You are our hero.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Anton is sitting by pond. Regina approaches. He sees her.
Anton: (Standing up quickly) Get away from me!
Regina: I'm here to help you.
Anton: No. You're human. I hate humans. (Regina takes two steps forward.) Don't come any closer! Or I'll kill you.
Regina: (chuckles) Look, I hear you're in town 'cause you wanna kill someone. I can help. I have no love for this prince either, and if you wanna destroy this town to get to him, well, I'm happy to do my part. (She pulls a piece of a mushroom out of her pocket.) This will make you bigger. It will return you to your former glory. (Anton hesitantly takes the mushroom from her and takes a bite. Blue smoke swirls around him. Regina laughs.) Now get to work! As I'm sure you're aware, that mushroom won't last forever. (Anton thuds away.)
SCENE: Land Without Magic. Present. Logan International Airport. Mr. Gold is pacing as Emma and Henry sit waiting for their flight.
Emma: Do you want something to eat?
Mr. Gold: No.
Emma: Something wrong?
Mr. Gold: Stop asking me that. I'll be right back. (Mr. Gold heads to the restroom.)
SCENE: Land Without Magic. Present. Logan International Airport Men's Restroom. Mr. Gold enters the restroom and looks into the mirror. He then proceeds to a stall. He locks the door to the stall and begins to pace. When Mr. Gold stops pacing, he takes his anxiety out on a metal dispenser. He punches it repeatedly until it is thoroughly dented and his hand is bleeding. He attempts to heal his hand with magic, but it doesn't work. He does not have magic outside the borders of Storybrooke. Henry enters the bathroom.
Henry: Mr. Gold? (singsongy) Mr. Gold? We're boarding soon. Are you comin'?
SCENE: Giant's Lair. Past. Anton is filling a giant-sized bag with treasure. Arlo walks up from behind him.
Arlo: Anton. Anton, where have you been? We were worried.
Anton: I needed to get away for a little while. So... I went down below to see things for myself.
Arlo: You went to the human world? Do you have any idea how dangerous that could be?
Anton: I met friends there—friends who understand me, who like me. And I plan to go back for good.
Arlo: Anton... I know we tease you. But we love you. You're our brother. You know that. You expect these humans to just welcome you with open arms? You could crush them.
Anton: (defensively) There's magic that can change me to their size. And with this treasure, we can all be happy. (All of a sudden, birds can be heard cawing.)
Arlo: Sentry birds. Someone has trespassed on our land. You told the humans you were coming here, didn't you? You showed them the beanstalk.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. On the streets, Mary Margaret and David are searching for Anton, who can be heard terrorizing residents of Storybrooke.
Anton: That's right! Run! (picking up a car) RUN! (He throws the car.)
Mary Margaret: Ohh! (The car lands behind Mary Margaret and David. Anton walks off. Mary Margaret and David follow him.)
David: (to the residents of Storybrooke panicking in the streets) Head to the town hall! Bring anyone you find on the way. Somebody get Leroy.
Mary Margaret: Guess we found our giant. I just didn't think he would be so...
Mary Margaret: My mistake.
David: Ever stop one before?
Mary Margaret: Nope.
David: Well... here's to new firsts. (to Anton) Wait! (Anton hears him and turns around.) You don't have to do this!
Anton: Yeah, I do. You destroyed everything in my life. Now you're gonna know what that feels like.
David: The man who hurt you—that wasn't me. That was my twin brother James. (Leroy runs up beside Mary Margaret.) We were separated at birth. He was raised by a... a ruthless king.
Anton: You're not James?
Anton: Then where is he?
David: He paid the ultimate price for his arrogance. He's dead! There is nothing more you can do to him.
Mary Margaret: We're on your side, Anton! We're good! We're here because of you. You know our daughter Emma. You gave her the magic compass.
Anton: Emma? Let me talk to her. She says you're okay, then I'll stop.
Mary Margaret: (stammers) She's kind of out of town!
Anton: (skeptically) Really?
Mary Margaret: But when she gets back, I know she'll really wanna talk to you.
Anton: How convenient. Everyone I'm looking for isn't around! All you humans do is lie and cheat and kill, and I'm sick of it! (He starts running toward Mary Margaret and David.)
Mary Margaret: Aah!
SCENE: Giant's Lair. Past. Prince James and Jack have just finished climbing the beanstalk. Arlo comes rushing out of the castle in the clouds with Anton right behind him.
Arlo: (in a deep voice) Humans. Let's kill them.
Anton: It's not like that. (Anton gets in front of Arlo to slow him down.) Arlo, these are my friends, James and Jack. Guys, you didn't have to come up here. The treasure's ready to go.
Prince James: Oh, we're not here for the treasure. We're here for the beans—all of them.
Anton: But... you're my friends. How—
Jack: No, (She draws her sword.) we're not. If you and your people wanna save your lives, take us to the beans.
Arlo: No. We may live in peace, but we will fight to protect what is ours.
Prince James: Then a fight is what you shall have. (He draws his sword.)
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Leroy, Mary Margaret, and David are running from Anton as he chases the trio down the street.
Leroy: So let me get this straight. You got a twin brother?
Leroy: His name is James?
Leroy: Well, your name is James.
David: No, actually, it's not.
Anton: (Anton gets tangled in a set of power lines) Uhh!
Leroy: It's "Charming," then?
Mary Margaret: No, that's the nickname I gave him!
Leroy: Hey, hold on. What the hell is your name?
Leroy: Your curse name?
David: My real name.
Leroy: What, you're David, James, and Charming? Is David like a middle name?
David: No! It's my name name!
Leroy: You know what? Whatever, I'm gonna call you whatever I damn well please! Is that okay?
David: (Anton frees himself from the power lines.) Sure, Leroy.
Mary Margaret: So what's the plan?
David: Lead the giant away from here so he can't hurt anyone.
Mary Margaret: But if we keep heading in this direction, we're gonna hit the town line!
David: Okay, new plan. (Leroy, Mary Margaret, and David stop running. They have reached the docks. Anton is approaching. David turns and starts walking toward Anton.)
Mary Margaret: What are you doing?
David: Giving him what he wants. Anton! How about we make a deal?
Anton: I don't make deals with humans.
David: Just hear me out. I'll surrender myself to you if you spare the lives of everyone in Storybrooke.
Mary Margaret: (rushing to his side) David, you can't do this.
David: (to Mary Margaret) If I don't, the whole town will suffer. I can't allow that. (to Anton) Well, what do you say?
Anton: (He thinks it over.) Deal. (Anton runs at him. Anton tries to jump on David, but Mary Margaret pulls David out of the way. The force of Anton's landing creates a large hole that Anton gets stuck in. All of a sudden, the effect of the magic mushroom wears off. In a swirl of blue smoke, Anton disappears from sight.)
Mary Margaret: Where did he go?
David: I'm not sure. (David, Mary Margaret, and Leroy peer inside the hole. Anton is hanging onto a broken pipe to keep from falling.)
SCENE: Giant's Lair. Past. Anton runs in carrying a giant-sized ax and sword. Arlo runs in behind him.
Arlo: Anton. The human armies are overrunning us. Abraham and Andre have fallen. The human swords are poison.
Anton: This is all because of me. I've ruined everything.
Arlo: No, you still have a chance to save us.
Arlo: The beans, Anton. You must raze the fields.
Arlo: If the humans take the beans, they will bring their violence to every realm. It is your birthright to protect the beans. Right now that means destroying them.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Anton is hanging from a broken pipe in the hole he created. David backs a truck up next to the hole. Residents of Storybrooke are there to assist with the rescue, including Leroy, Granny, and Mary Margaret.
David: That better hold.
Leroy: (holding a rope) It'll hold.
Granny: (Granny grabs one end of the rope.) I got this. (She attaches it to the truck's hitch. Leroy drops the rope down the hole. The residents of Storybrooke, minus David and Mary Margaret, take hold of the rope.)
Mary Margaret: (She kisses David.) Most people would let that giant die after what he's done.
David: You wouldn't. (He picks up the rope.) All right. (He wraps some slack rope around his waist.) All right, Anton! I'm coming down! (He repels down the hole. Once he is at the same level as Anton, David reaches out his hand.) Take my hand.
Anton: I don't want to go back up there! I should just let go!
David: You'll die!
Anton: Maybe death hurts less than life.
David: If you really wanted to die, you would have let go already. Now take my hand. (Anton grabs David's hand.)
Leroy: (at the residents of Storybrooke) Come on. (The residents start pulling Anton and David up.)
Mary Margaret: Almost! A little more! (They finally get Anton and David out of the hole.)
Anton: You saved my life.
Mary Margaret: That's what we do.
Anton: Thank you.
Leroy: You're welcome.
David: We're not all the same, Anton. I don't know what my brother did to you, but... (sighs) that's not us.
Anton: (exhales) You have no idea.
SCENE: Giant's Lair. Past. Arlo and Jack are fighting. Meanwhile, Prince James is filling a sack full with treasure.
Jack: (thrusting her sword into Arlo's heel) Uhh!
Arlo: Aah! Ha! (Arlo pulls the sword out from his heel. He lunges forward and grabs Jack.)
Jack: AAH! James! Aah! (James turns and sees she needs help, but he just stands there. She grunts as she tries to free herself. Arlo stabs her with her own sword.) UHH! (Arlo drops Jack. Prince James goes back to filling his sack at a faster rate than before. The poison of the sword takes effect. Arlo loses his balance and collapses. Anton enters.)
Anton: Arlo? (He sees Arlo on the ground.) No. (Anton falls to his knees next to Arlo.) No, no, no, no! (Prince James finishes filling his sack and starts to run toward the beanstalk.)
Jack: James! (Prince James stops.) Please.
Prince James: I'm sorry, Jack. But I have a kingdom to run. I'm sure you understand. (Prince James runs off. Jack lets out a weak groan.)
Arlo: Anton... the poison. It's in my blood. Did you...
Anton: All destroyed. The fields and every last bean.
Arlo: Oh, good. Good. That's what's important.
Anton: No. Everyone else is dead. You can't die, too, please.
Arlo: I know your path is hard. But someday you will know which road to choose. And when you do, (he pulls out a vial) you will need this. A preserved cutting from the stalk. (Anton takes the vial.) Plant it. New beans will grow.
Anton: But you had me salt the land. Nothing can grow here.
Arlo: Then someday you will find... new land. (Arlo dies.)
Anton: How? Arlo? Arlo?! (whispers) No.
SCENE: Granny's Diner. Present. Leroy, Granny, Anton, Mary Margaret, Ruby, and David enter.
Leroy: This is Granny's. She makes a mean lasagna and runs an inn, so I'm sure we can set you up with a room till you find a place.
Anton': Thanks, but I think I'll set up camp in the woods.
Leroy: The woods?
Anton: Yeah, I'm better off alone. I'm not too good at fitting in.
Leroy: You're in the right place. Storybrooke's got all kinds—dwarves, fairies, werewolves, you name it. Ruby, beers all around.
Mary Margaret': We all miss our land, Anton. But this is our home now.
Anton': You never think about going back?
Mary Margaret: Of course we do. It's just not possible.
David: We have no way to get there.
Anton: How's the farmland here?
David: Pretty good. Why?
Anton: (removing from his pocket the vial Arlo gave him) The stem is from a beanstalk. If I plant it, it should be able to grow some magic beans. And then you just may have a way.
SCENE: Storybrooke. Present. Anton, David, and Mary Margaret are standing in a field. Anton is examining the dirt.
David: Well, what's the verdict?
Anton: Soil's got a nice loamy feel. Lot of minerals. The beans should grow well here. Only one problem. (Leroy and the other dwarves approach, except for Mr. Clark who is absent.)
Mary Margaret: What's that?
Anton: Cora. This is why she brought me. She wanted me to grow beans. So whatever she plans to do with them... can't be good.
Mary Margaret: Then we won't let her get to them.
Leroy: No one touches our crop.
Anton: Your crop? I thought you guys were miners.
Leroy: Work is work. It's what we do. So what do you say? You up for some help?
Leroy: (Happy hands Anton a pickax.) Here. To help break up the earth.
Anton: (The word "Tiny" appears on his pickax.) "Tiny." My brothers used to call me that.
Leroy: Ax never lies.
David: Wait a second. I did my time in the mines. How come I didn't get one of those?
Leroy: 'Cause you ain't a dwarf. (He rubs Anton on the back.) Welcome aboard, brother. (Leroy starts whistling "Heigh-Ho." The six dwarves and Anton start breaking ground with their pickaxes.)
SCENE: Storybrooke General Hospital. Present. Belle is in her bed reading Ruby's copy of Jules Verne's "The Mysterious Island." She sets it down on her nightstand just as Greg enters.
Greg: Hey. (He startles Belle.) It's okay.
Belle: Who, uh... who are you?
Greg: My name's Greg, okay? I—I'm a patient here, just like you. I- I'm really sorry to bother you, but... I'm the one that was driving the car in—in the accident.
Belle: Oh. Are you okay?
Greg: Yeah. Yeah, they, um... they patched me up pretty good. (He takes a seat at the foot of her bed.) Look, I—I overheard you talking about how you saw a guy with a ball of fire.
Belle: (chuckles) And you think I'm crazy, too. Well, I did see it. I did see it actually—
Greg: Hey, I know that you're not crazy.
Belle: You do?
Greg: 'Cause I saw it, too.
SCENE: Outside Granny's Dinner. Present. Night. Mary Margaret is waiting for David. He exits Granny's with two cups of coffee. He hands one to Mary Margaret.
Mary Margaret: Mmm.
David: (toasts) Here's to not getting squashed by a giant.
Mary Margaret: I'll drink to that. ('Mary Margaret and David begin to walk.)
David: You know, sometimes I wonder how things would've turned out if I had been the one raised by King George instead of my brother, you know, would I have been... corrupt like him?
Mary Margaret: Never.
David: (toasts) Same blood ran through our veins.
Mary Margaret: Mm-hmm, but your hearts are different. (David looks unconvinced.) You may not believe it, but trust me. I know you, Charming. I had a lot of fun today.
Mary Margaret: Uh-huh.
David: Almost getting killed is fun?
Mary Margaret: (guiltily) Yeah. I missed our adventures.
David: Me too. (chuckles) I was kinds fun. You know, we could do this all the time. When the beans grow, we could go back. Everyone could go home.
Mary Margaret: I don't know.
David: What don't you know?
Mary Margaret: Home is where our family is. And that's here. I don't know if Emma would come with us, and I am not going to be separated from her again.
David: You're worried about her.
Mary Margaret: Aren't you?
David: Of course, but... (sighs) Emma—Emma can take care of herself, and I'm sure wherever she and Henry are, they're safe.
SCENE: Ajira Airlines Regional Flight 53. Present. Mr. Gold, Emma, and Henry are sitting in their seats waiting for take off. Henry is eating baked goods from Cinnabon's.
Emma: You good, kid?
Henry: You kidding? A trip with you, first plane ride, and we're going on a quest like in the book. The only thing that could make this day better... is more frosting.
Emma: (Emma notices that Mr. Gold seems jumpy.) It's going to be all right. We're gonna find your son.
Mr. Gold: I know.
Woman over P.A.: Welcome, folks, to Ajira Airlines regional flight 53, with nonstop service to New York City. Our flight time tonight is 42 minutes. Please sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. (Mr. Gold is more nervous than ever.)
