- The Evil Queen: 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?
- The Evil Queen: Because this is my happy ending.
- Mary Margaret Blanchard: As we build our birdhouses, remember, what you're making is a home, not a cage. The bird is free and will do what it will. This is for them, not us. They're loyal creatures. If you love them and they love you, they will always find you.
- Prince Charming: You're wasting your time, you've already lost. And I will not let you ruin this wedding.
- The 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.
- The 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.

- Prince Charming: What's twenty-eight years when you have eternal love?
- Snow White: You. You found me.
- Prince Charming: Did you ever doubt I would?
- Snow White: Truthfully? The glass coffin gave me pause.
