Jefferson: What's a story? When you were in high school, did you learn about the Civil War. [...] How? Did you read about it -- perchance, in a book? How is that any less real than any other book.
Recapper: I think you mean, "How is that any more real..." but I'm interrupting. Sorry.
Emma: History books are based on history.
Jefferson: And story books are based on what -- imagination? Where does that come from? It has to come from somewhere. You know what the issue is with this world? Everyone wants a magical solution for their problem, and everyone refuses to believe in magic. [He points his gun at Emma and the material in front of her.] Now get it to work.
Emma: Here's the thing, Jefferson...
Recapper: Yes! Tell him you don't know how to make any kind of hat, never mind a magical one.
Emma: I can't. It's not in the script and you already know that, so let me just get on trying to break through to this nut job. Here's the thing, Jefferson. This is it. This is the real world.
Jefferson: A real world. How arrogant are you to think yours is the only one? There are infinite more. You have to open your mind. They touch one another -- pressing up in a long line of lands. Each just as real as the last -- all have their own rules. Some have magic; some don't. And some need magic, like this one, and that's where you come in. You and your friend are not leaving here, until you make my hat -- until you get it to work.
Sorry to get so quote-y up there, but I felt that dialogue is so important to the canon of this show. Anyhow, Jefferson lays an enormous pair of scissors in front of Emma. She picks them up and starts cutting into the fabric, although she has no pattern, no hat form (I don't know if that's what they're called, because like Emma, I have no idea how to make a hat), and no clue. She asks Jefferson what will happen once the hat works. He says then he'll go home.
Wonderland. Jefferson and Regina approach the Queen of Hearts' domain. There's a huge maze before them, and its walls devour anything that touch them. Jefferson throws a stick to demonstrate it to Regina. Regina, in turn, throws a fireball to ensure them a short walk through. Arm in arm, Regina and Jefferson march through their magical path. Finally, they arrive at a -- what kind of building is that? I want to call it a cupola, but I know that's wrong. I called it a castle in the recaplet. I must have gotten some bad mushrooms, or something. I don't have time to search out architectural terms. It's a low, one story building topped by a dome (with a heart cupola on top). There appear to be no windows. It reminds me of a mausoleum. Anyhow, Regina magics open the look and the doors open. Inside, there is a wall of vaults that remind me of Regina's heart vaults back in Storybrooke. She selects the box she wants, and she and Jefferson start back toward the looking glass.
