    Yes, Emma later completely reversed herself and said Henry's father was not a firefighter/hero, so I think we're safe in dropping the firefighter connection in trying to identify the guy. If he's in Storybooke, then the Peter Pumpkin Eater ID would be a good guess.
    Isn't Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater a nursery rhyme rather than a fairy tale? Or, are nursery rhymes included in the show's premise?

    It seems that they have a loose interpretaion of the literary form. I mean, they use Disney characters/versions. My guess is that nursery rhymes are fair game. If they're looking to do a long-term series, I imagine that they may feel the need for a fairly broad playing field. On the other hand, they could just be having fun with images, play on words, and nods to related genres. Why not!

    My daughter and I watch together and we both thought of Peter Peter at the mention of Pumpkin Pie, but giving it more thought, we came up with Cinderella's coach. Might have been a tidbit thrown in to confuse us since Emma did confess to making it up.

    Re: Once Upon A Time ABC

    I liked the episode but have to agree a bit - while I do love stories about the "supporting" characters, I find myself yearning for those moments when we see SW or PC on the screen. They don't even have to be together, I just want to know what they're up to. Like with the baby blanket - my kids thought I was crazy (this was the first time we've gotten to watch the show live together b/c of the school holiday) but I was talking to the TV, urging MM to remember Emma through the blanket!

    But I do like the stories and continue to enjoy the twists and turns TPTB are giving them. And I'm enjoying Emma bringing them their happy endings, one fairytale at a time. Anything that messes with Regina makes me happy too.

    Also, I love Regina's wardrobe (and her whole black & white schema) as well but I found her wig this episode distracting. To me, it looked like her real hair was a shade lighter than the wig and I found myself staring at it the whole time.

    Her and Rumpy. Man oh man, I can't wait for the smackdown between those two. It'll be like something out of Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter.

    I know....it's going to be delicious!

    Anyone else get the vibe that Rumpy actually really likes Emma? I think she amuses him.

    Maybe he is hoping she will take over his position?

    I agree, he seems to really like Emma and enjoy "playing" with her.
    I remember EQ when she was on that summer series about wife swapping (she was an ex stewardess married to a pilot and they managed any temptations they might have by making them group activities...but she was also portrayed as a really nice person, maybe a little driven in that direction by her husband's wandering eye...a great 70's show...that is, set in that era). She was very sexy then, still is. I hope there is some kind of happy ending for her, even though she's been so evil...as was said above, you can see she wants love. Loved her EQ hair this time...practically Farrah Fawcett!
    I wondered if the pumpkin pie part of the story might have been true...maybe one of those things that started off well and went bad. It seemed like an odd detail to just make up. But yes, nursery rhyme, not fairy tale, and the whole Sneezy thing is a very Disney version of the fairy tale, not Grimm..in the sense of the original stories and of the competing and grimmer fairy tale show.

    There's a new interview with Ginnifer Goodwin that just came out. I'd copy & paste but it's rather longish. Warning: It mentions characters who're going to pop up in case you don't want to know.
