Once Upon a Time (2011–2018): Season 2, Episode 19 - Lacey - full transcript

Wrestling with the threat of the prophecy, Gold attempts to bring back Belle's memories by spending more time with her. Flashbacks to the fairytale world show Belle just after she was imprisoned by Rumpel. Meanwhile, Mary Margaret and David reveal a secret project they have been working on to Emma.

Previously on "Once Upon a Time"...

- I'm Tamara.
- Emma.

She's my fiancee.

Not my son!


Don't stop! Run!

I'm not leaving without my father.

I'm afraid you are,
because he's not here.

- Emma.
- August.

Listen, I have to warn you.

Sorry I'm late.
It's been a heck of a day.

Before you turn into a little boy,

you were trying
to warn us about something.

I don't remember.

I will go with you forever.


Belle! Who's Belle?

You will be reunited with your son.


A young boy will lead you to him.

The boy will be your undoing.

Then I'll just have to kill him.

And now, my boy, for your present.

Pick one object from the shop.

Anything you like.


Oh, hey, careful, buddy.
Wands are powerful.

So how does it work?

Here. Let me show you.

- Aah!
- Oh!

- Why would you do that?!
- The prophecy.

The seer said the boy
would be my undoing.

So I have no choice.

I must be his.

Once Upon a Time 2x19 - Lacey
Original air date April 21, 2013

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.


Up high.

Seems like we've both been
pushed to the sidelines.

What are you doing here?

The real question is,

what's your son doing with mine?

Oh, that.

That's right. You didn't get
the birth announcement, did you?

That's Henry's father.


Do I have to spell it out for you?

Ms. Swan and my son...

You're Henry's grandfather?

Guess that makes us family.

He's got my eyes, don't you think?

You did this.

Trust me, dearie,

it was as much a shock to me
as it is to you.


You must have known.

When I adopted him, it was you
who procured him for me.

You expect me to believe that
that was a coincidence?

No, not coincidence.

Fate. And apparently,
fate has a sense of humor.


So you're playing the part
of the loving grandpa now?

They won't accept you,

no matter what you do.

Not your son, not any of them.

Yeah, we'll see.

I've already seen, Gold.

I've seen your dark heart,

and it always wins out.

You always choose darkness.

You know, you think you know me, dearie.

But you don't.

I know you well enough.

If your own son couldn't
bring out the good in you,

who will?


you're alive.

Indeed I am.

I imagine my last phone call
was a bit alarming.


Sounded like you were on your deathbed.

I'm really sorry if I startled you.

I know that you have no memory of me.

But my feelings for you are real.

And I just needed you
to know that in case...

Well, in case I died.

I'm glad you're okay.

And I could tell
your feelings were true.

You could?

I have a sense about people.

I can't explain how, but I...

I could just tell.

So you believe we know each other?

I believe that

whatever caused me to forget myself,

means that I have a past,

and... that past probably included you.

It did.

When I, uh...

when I was injured, I...

This is gonna sound crazy.

I remember you healing me.

You've been through a lot.

Serious injury.

All the drugs you've been on
since you've been in here.

Once you remember who you are,

it'll all become clear.

Can you help me do that?

Remember who I am?

Only if you help me remember who I am.

Sorry, what?

Belle, you always
brought out the best in me,

and right now I need that.

So, yes, I will do everything
I can to bring you back,

for you and for me.

We can help each other.


Let's talk to someone about
getting you out of here.

You've been locked up long enough.

When you so eagerly agreed
to come and work for me,

I assumed you wouldn't miss
your family quite so much.

I made my sacrifice for them.

Of... of course I miss them, you beast!

Yes, yes, of course.
But the crying must stop.

Night after night.

It's making it very difficult
for me to spin.

You know, I do my best thinking then.


Perhaps this'll help?

For me?

Not quite so beastly now, am I?

Thank you.

Maybe now I can actually get some sleep.

No, no, no. It's not
to help you sleep, dearie.

It's to muffle the cries
so I can get back to work!

Are you sure you wanna do this, dearie?

Pretty sure.

If you don't know how to use that wand,

it can do nasty things to you.

Well, then, uh...

I'll stick to what I know works.

Do you know what this arrow
can do to you?

Has to hit me first.

Shouldn't be a problem.

An arrow fired from this bow
always finds its target.

Don't you just love magic?


I know I do.

As do I.

But don't you know?

All magic comes with a price.

And in your case,

that's me.



I don't think we've been
properly introduced.

I'm Regina. I'm the mayor of this town.

Just wanted to make sure you're okay.

That's, uh, that's very thorough of you.

Thank you, but I... I'm fine.

I think I am.

M... Mr. Gold's, uh, getting me discharged.

He believes he can help me
remember who I am.

Does he now?

What's this, dear?

Did you drop it?

Don't think so.

Keep looking, dear.


I... I know... I know what this is.

I think I remember who I am.

Well, I'm sure
Mr. Gold will be thrilled.

These are the places you saw it?

Yeah. This town's lousy with magic.

Now you should go.
If Neal suspects anything,

it's gonna make everything
we have to do that much harder.

Don't worry. He won't.

Greg, have you had any luck finding him?

My dad? No.

But he's here.

I'm sure of it.

We will find him.

I know.

But one thing at a time.

Now you were able
to get the package here, right?

It's right outside town.

Couldn't just drive in with it.

And it's... it's stable?


I'll bring the package in
tonight. Be ready.

Why are we in the middle of nowhere?

Why aren't you guys telling me
what's going on?

- W... why the secrecy?
- Because you need to see it.

Great. That always goes well for me.

Listen, whatever it is, it can wait.

August was trying
to warn me about something...

someone dangerous.

Doesn't matter.

Why not?

Because of this.



Are you here to help?

It's not quite harvest time yet.


You're growing magic beans.

That's what you were up to
when I was in New York?

Why didn't you tell me?

We are telling you.

We kept it a secret to protect the crop.

Mother Superior... she cloaked the area.

That way, Anton can do
what he does best.

Actually, you haven't
seen me play darts.

But, uh, yeah, I do this pretty good.

Um, Anton, don't
take this the wrong way,

but w... w... why... why are you so...

Small? Cora.

She and Regina brought some
magic to make me human-sized.

Kind of like it.

Enough lollygagging! Back to it.

Wow. Dwarves really like to work.

It's great to see you, Emma.

You, too.

You want to use the beans
to make a portal

to go back to the Enchanted Forest.

That's the real reason
you didn't tell me.

What about ogres
and destruction and danger?

We can fix all that.

We did it before. We can do it again.

We can start over, Emma.

So you've changed your mind.
You wanna go now, too.

Not my mind.

My heart.

After what I did to Cora,

I think restoring our land
is the best way to mend it.

It'll be good for all of us,
the whole family.

Henry... and you.

We're from there. You're from there.

No. This world is... my home.

And it's been nothing but cruel to you.

If we go back, I think you might be able

to have your happy ending.

Nurse! Nurse!

There was a patient here
suffering from amnesia.

Where is she?

Belle? She should still be here.

So where is she?!

Uh... uh, yes, Mr. Gold?

Someone I care for has gone missing.

Only thing she left behind was
a matchbook to this vile joint.

Vile? Really?

Yeah, okay. We... we could
clean it up some.

I don't understand this.

If you knew her, this is
the last place she would go for.

Really not a fan
of the rabbit hole, are ya?

Describe her.

Brown hair. Beautiful blue eyes.

An accent you wouldn't soon forget.

Her name's Belle.

Belle? Are... are you sure?

'Cause that sounds
an awful lot like Lacey.

Who the hell is Lacey?


Uh, name's Lacey.

Her name should be "Fast Eddie,"

'cause she's a hustler.
She's hustling me.

Do... do you r... do you remember me?

Guy who visited me
in hospital. Sure I do.

But now I remember who I am,

and that's Lacey.

Now if you'll excuse me,
you're kinda in my shot.

No! No! No!


I'm gonna need another apron.

Uh, they're, uh,
they're on the line drying.

It'll be some time.

Eh, fine, fine.

Get to cleaning this one as well.

I'll be back later.

All this because he tried
to steal a magic wand?

No, because he tried to steal from me,

The Dark One.

You try that, you get skinned alive.

Everyone knows that.

Actually, no, they don't.

Well, they will
after they discover the body.

What, did he send you to finish the job?

Uh, no. No, not... not at all.

Here. Drink this.

Mm. Mm.

I couldn't let this continue. It's...

it's inhuman.

I... I couldn't agree more.

But I fear now
he'll turn his wrath on you.

If he does, I'll stand up
to the beast that he is,

because no one...

no one deserves to be tortured.

Well, he may beg to differ.

Well, I don't care.
He doesn't frighten me.

Hurry up. He'll be back soon.


But he will... he will kill you...


unless you run away with me.

I can't run.

I made a deal to serve him

in exchange for him
protecting my... my kingdom

and my family from the ogres.

If I... if I were to leave, I may survive,

but my family surely won't.

All I can do is wish you luck.

Thank you. Now go. Go.

What have you done with Belle?

I'm sorry. Do I look like
a one-handed pirate

with a pistol?

You know who shot her.

Stop playing games. She's gone
and now she's someone else.

Oh. You mean she has her memories back.

You're welcome.

Not her memories. Her curse memories.

Yeah, from the curse you gave me.

You see, all I did was
jog things back in place.

Well, undo it. Bring her back.

You know I can't.

She crossed the town line.

Her old self is gone.

These curse memories
she has are now real.

Lacey's here to stay.

Any curse can be broken, dearie.

Now you are gonna help me...

Or what? You'll kill me?

No, you won't.

Oh, won't I?

You're on your best behavior
because of your son.

You don't want him to know
who you really are, now do you?

So I suggest you get used to Lacey.

All right.

I'll find a way.

Finding a way isn't the problem, dear.

We both know what is.

Yeah, true love's kiss.

And I don't think our new resident

feels the same way about you
as you do her.

Then I'll make her.

There's the charm that should
easily woo a lovely young lady.

She'll most certainly fall
in love with you at first sight.

Oh, wait.
That didn't happen, did it?

She will, or I promise you
there will be suffering.

Finally something we both can agree on.

Good luck, Gold.

Oh, and, uh...

give my best to Lacey.

Ten bowls of chili. No beans.

You and the dwarves
got something against beans?

Oh, let's just say we've had our
fill over the past couple weeks.

What exactly are you boys up to, anyway?

Just a little landscaping.

Is this seat taken?

You might wanna run along.
I need to chat with the prince.

It's all right, Leroy. I got this.

What do you want to chat about, Gold?


She, uh, helped jog Belle's memory.

That's good, then.

No, no. Wrong memories.

She now thinks

she's a scantily clad barfly
named Lacey.

She has a false life,

as you did under the curse with Kathryn,

only hers apparently
involves a lot more alcohol.

What do you want with me?

I want to know how you did it.

Even when both your heads
were filled with false memories,

David Nolan still
won Mary Margaret's heart.

You want me to help you?

Well, I'm certainly not here
for the overpraised lasagna.

You got my wife
to murder someone.

Someone who would have
killed all of you.

Look, if you don't
wanna help, that's fine.

But if you do, for the first time ever,

I'm gonna owe you a favor.

All right.

When Regina cursed Mary Margaret and me,

there was still a sliver
of Snow and Charming.

The real us inside.

And so how do I bring back
the real Belle?

Show her the man she fell in love with.

I'll try not to be too loud.

I can't promise the same courtesy

from our prisoner.


Where is he?


I let him go.


He was a thief!

Which doesn't give you
the right to kill him.

It gives me every right!

Oh, let me guess.

You think he's a hero,

stealing from me for some noble cause.

You read too many books, dearie!

Maybe that'll stop filling your head

with poisonous thoughts!

I didn't free him because
of what I read in my books.

I saw good in him.

That man only wanted
to escape with his life.

Oh, is that what you thought?

Our thief escaped
with more than his life.

You were tricked.

You foolish, gullible girl!

Th... there must be an explanation.

We... we don't know
why he needed that wand.

He took the wand
because he wanted magic!

People who steal magic
never have good intentions!

No. No.

You can't tell
what's in a person's heart

until you truly know them.

Oh, we'll see what's
in his heart, all right.

When I shoot an arrow
straight through it.

And because I am a showman...

it'll be with his bow.

And because this is your fault,

you get to come with me and watch,

and know as the blood
drips from his carcass

it'll be you and your rags
to wipe it up!

Another round for the lady.


I've had my eye on you for a while.


Thank you.

Not my type.

Well, you never know
unless you give me a chance.

You might wanna wait outside.

Yeah, yeah, bad idea.

Come on.

Oh! Mr. Gold. You're, uh, you're back.

As are you.

Well, what can I say? Love the ambiance.


What the bloody hell is that?

Let's get some "Panama"
going on in here.

You, uh, you like Van Halen?

You're a hagar man, aren't you? Huh?

What are you doing?
We have nothing in common.

That doesn't matter.
You just need a way in.

Ask her out. Go on.

- Uh, Lacey?
- Yeah?

Now that you're...
back to your old self,

perhaps we could
spend some time together.

Like a date?

Yes, a date.

Well, you do know
that I'm not this Belle

that you're always talking about?

Yes, of course.

I've heard about you, you know.

People in town,

they're afraid of you Mr. Gold.

Don't let that deter you.

Give me a chance, please.


Tonight. Granny's.


Not bad, don Juan.

Don Juan was nothing
before he made his deal with me.

Regardless, you got her
to go out with you.


Indeed. Now I just need her
to fall in love with me.

Reading up on Henry's father?

Or maybe his grandfather?

How long did you think
you can keep that from me?

Well, I was going to tell you,

but I was kind of busy trying
to stop you and your mother

from killing me and my entire family.

What is he doing here?

Neal? Relax.

He just wants to spend
a little time with his son.

Funny, he didn't seem to want
to spend time with him

the first ten years of his life.

But then again, neither did you.

You know what, Regina?

How about instead of
worrying about everyone else,

you start focusing on trying

to be the person Henry wants you to be

before you lose him for good?

"For good?" What does that mean?


Unlike you, the rest of the world

isn't always scheming
to get what they want.


You're hiding something.

Well, whatever it is,
I can assure you of one thing.

I'm going to find out.

Are you, uh...

are you nervous, Mr. Gold?

No, no. Of course not.

I'm just, uh, deciding what to have.

What the hell happened to you?

You raid the back of Ruby's closet?

Perhaps Lacey and I could order.

Um, two burgers, two iced teas, please.

Actually I'm gonna go
chicken parm and white wine.

And make it the bottle.

All righty.

Coming up.

I've never really been
much of a burger girl.


Well, whatever you want, you shall have.

You know, you... you're
a classy guy, Mr. Gold.

This is not what I was
expecting from you,

given all the...

stuff people say about you.

Oh, that again. My reputation.

What is it you hear?

Oh, just that, you know,

you're the most powerful man in town,

and you got that power
from being ruthless.

And that when people cross you, they...

get hurt.

Thank you.

I am simply a shop owner,

and procurer... of
difficult-to-find objects.

People like to believe the worst in me,

but, Lacey, I... I would rather
you believe the best.

I... I just... I... I just don't get
why people are scared of you.

You know, I see a man
who wouldn't hurt anyone.

Thank you, Lacey.

I really needed to hear that.

Especially now.

Well, you know what they say.

You can't tell
what's in a person's heart

until you truly know them.

Oh. Did I say something wrong?

No, no. It... it's just that...

I... I knew someone once who said
that exact same thing to me.

Gosh, I'm so sorry. Your dress...

A bit of water will take it right out.


I'm losing track of him.

This forest is too thick.

Maybe we should return home.

What, and let the thief escape?

What would people think
if I spared the life

of someone who stole from me?

That there's actually a man
hiding behind the beast?

There isn't.

Then why didn't you kill me
when I freed the prisoner?

Well, I would have,

but, uh, good help these days
is really hard to find.

I think that you are not as dark
as you want people to believe.

I think that deep down,
there's love in your heart.

And for something more than power.

You're right.

There is something I love.

My things!

You really are as dark as people say.

No, darker, dearie. Much darker.



What are you doing
in my woods?

Pardon the intrusion, sheriff.

Uh, I'm looking for a thief.

He attacked me with this bow.

Uh, I... I traced him
as far as these woods,

and then he vanished.

Yes, I know exactly who you're after.

But I also know who you are,

My reputation precedes me. Excellent.

Yes, as does your penchant
for making deals.

I'll tell you
where you can find your thief...

if you give me something in return.

What do you want?

A night with your wench.

She's not for sale.

You can't part
with her for, say, an hour?

20 minutes?

Let me think. Um...

I propose a new deal.

I give you this back,

and in return, you tell me
everything you know

about the man I am hunting.

You ought to be more careful
with your possessions.

Do you agree to my terms?

What was that?

All right, I'll take that
as a "yes" then.

Aah! Aah!

Start talking.

The thief that you're after...
I've been chasing him for years.

He ruined me!

He stole the woman I love

and... made me the laughingstock
of all of Nottingham.

Where can I find him?

Well, the last I heard,

he was hiding out in Sherwood Forest.

And his name?

Robin Hood.

He goes by "Robin Hood."

You, uh, you know
it's still not too late

to... to turn back.

You know, I am not going to stand by

and watch you kill a man.

Well, you're welcome to sit if you like,

but you are gonna watch.

That's the whole point of our
little expedition, remember?

To see what your actions wrought.

Found him.

Look, he's...

he's waiting for someone.

That woman.

That must be the one
he stole from the sheriff.

She's sick.

She's going to die.

Yeah, and so is he.


I'm right about him,

about why he stole the wand.

- He did it so he could heal the woman he
loves. - He's still a thief.

And she would have died
if he hadn't stolen your wand.

And now he gets to die!

And she can tell all of Sherwood Forest

what happens when you cross

- There!
- Uhh!

That should give you a good view.

You don't have to do this.

There's good in you.

I was right about the thief,
and I am right about you.

Look, she's pregnant.

You are not the kind of man
to leave a child fatherless.


We've been found.

Marian, we must go.

What happened?

I missed.

Get back to the carriage.

I'm bored of this forest.

You're... you're not going after him?

He's not worth the effort.

You spared his life.

What? I did nothing of the sort.

That bow has magic in it.

It never misses its target.

Well, perhaps the magic
just simply wore...


Aren't you coming?

Hey! What the hell do you
think you're doing?!

Wait, you two are here together?

Yes, we are.

I... I'm sorry. I... I... I didn't know.

Go! Now!

Are you... are you all right?

Yeah, I'm... I'm fine.

Let's get you inside.

No! Look, I said I'm fine, okay? I'm...

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

You came out here because
you wanted to be with him?


But I don't understand.

Our date... I thought it was...
it was going well.

No. No, it... it wasn't.


It never was.

The only reason
I agreed to go out with you

was because I was trying to be nice.

But that's not me. That's... that's you.

But that's what you liked about me...

the nice part of me, the... the good part.

This is still about Belle, isn't it?

Look, Mr. Gold, I'm sorry.
She may have loved you.

But I am not her.

No, you're not.

Sure you don't wanna
grab some grub with us?

- Tiny's buyin'.
- I am?

New guy always buys.

You guys go ahead. We're gonna...

we're gonna head on home. See you tomorrow!

But I don't have
any money. No, really.

I don't even know what you

M... mister... Mr. Gold,

I'm... I'm so sorry about
what happened back there. I...

I... I didn't know that
you two were still together.

We're not.


Oh, so we're good then, right?

There's no hard feelings?

You know, I have tried so hard

to be on my best behavior.

But I guess there's no point now.


Looks like you won't be
needing that bow anymore.

Actually, I think I'll hold onto it.

You never know.

Could come in handy someday.

Well, uh, if you don't
need me for anything else,

good night, Rumplestiltskin.

No, wait.

There is something else.

Temper your excitement, dearie.

This is merely another room
for you to clean.

It's... it's beautiful.

There's more books in here
than I could read in a lifetime.

Well, I hope you can clean
faster than you can read.

Did you do all this for me?

I better not see a single speck of dust

gathering on any of these books.

What are you smiling at? I'm serious.

You're not who I thought you were.

And I'm glad.

I should have done this to you
a long time ago.


So it is true then,

what they say about you.

Yes. It's all true.

You are... you are not
who I thought you were.

And I'm glad.

You really are as dark as people say.

Darker, dearie.

Much darker.

What, did you tranquilize him?

I just gave him a couple bourbons.

Kid's a real lightweight.

Sounds like you guys had a full day.

Spent most of it at the park.

He's getting pretty good
with those wooden swords.

I guess that makes sense,

considering where his family's from.


You ever thought about going back?

Back where?

Home. Where we're from.


I spend most of my life
trying to forget that place.

I didn't exactly have
a fairy-tale childhood.

You know what I mean.

Why do you ask?

No reason.

August came by the park today.

He and Henry seemed
to really hit it off.

That is gonna take a while
to get used to.

You know, I gotta say, he's
actually a lot cooler as a kid.

Steals less of my money.

He'd be way cooler if he could remember

what he was trying to warn us
about before he got...


"Storybrooke isn't safe"?
Isn't safe from who?

Well, he always had
a knack for being cryptic.

Don't worry
about it. You'll figure it out.

If there's one thing I know about you,

you don't stop till you find
what you're looking for.

Hey, beautiful.

We all good?

Better than good.

Now should we unwrap the package?

You think he'll cooperate?

Wouldn't worry about that.
From what I know of him,

I don't think he'll need
much convincing to help us.

What makes you say that?

Because if there's one
person you can always count on

to do your dirty work...

it's a pirate.
