Once outside, Jiminy chastises his parents, but they remain unmoved as ever by his whining. Jiminy takes out his Rumpy vial, casts a glance heavenward, then apologizes. "You've given me no other choice," he says. You know, it's funny. Both his parents look like human beings, and yet Jiminy was somehow born a spineless jellyfish. He splashes them with the contents of the vial. Nothing happens. His dad switched the two vials earlier, leaving Jiminy with the harmless "elf tonic," aka rainwater. Jiminy realizes what this means and runs back toward the cottage. Inside, the vial lies on the floor, a few drops of gold liquid puddling beneath it. The young couple have been transformed into two of the most hideously creepy puppets I've ever seen. Their glassy eyes stare in horror, their mouths hang open in a permanent scream. Jiminy falls into a chair, crying. His parents walk in, laughing. "Oh look! New puppets for the act!" A little boy runs into the cottage, calling out, "Mama, Papa!" It's the Henry doppelganger Jiminy met earlier. He looks at the puppets and somehow instantly knows they're his parents. He wheels around to face Jiminy. "What did you do to them? What did you do to them!" Jiminy stands there crying and shaking his head.
In the mine, Archie catches up to Henry. He's peering through a crack in the rocks where he found the glass. "There's something shiny down there," he says. Archie pleads with him, says he's afraid for him. "Because you think I'm crazy?" Henry snits. "No! Because we're in an abandoned mine... and there is no way out!" Henry has the sense to look a little bit scared.
Outside, Pongo barks and hangs out with Ruby. Construction workers try to clear some rocks away from the entrance. Another tremor shakes the earth. Regina yells, "Stop! Stop! You're making it worse!" Heh. I thought she was shouting at the ground at first, but she's shouting at Emma. They get into a pissing match about whose fault it is that Henry's down there. Regina, near tears, finally snaps, "Oh, please, lecture me until his oxygen runs out!" That gets Emma to focus and agree to stop arguing.
In the tunnel, Archie and Henry can hear Pongo barking outside. They move toward the sound and find an old elevator.
Outside, Regina and Emma begin hatching what may be the worst rescue plan ever. "We need to find some way to punch through the ground," Regina says, "we need something big." From nearby, Marco pipes up, "Explosives!" Instead of immediately and unequivocally rejecting this idea, Emma and Regina look thoughtful.
