This time when Emma storms off, August chases after he. He soon falls and moans in pain. Emma asks what's wrong with his leg. August says he failed and that it doesn't matter, because she doesn't believe. He's not screwing around here. Whether or not she believes, this is real and he is sick. Emma agrees he's sick -- a sick crazy lying liar who lies. August wants to shout out to the Lost fans too, so he asks Emma if she's ever been to Phuket. That's where he was she decided to stay in Storybrooke. Emma asks how he knows when she decided to stay. August isn't done with the Lost easter eggs so he says, "Because at 8:15 in the morning, I woke up with a shooting pain in my leg. That's 8:15 at night, in Storybrooke. Sound familiar? That's when time there started to move forward again. I was supposed to be there for you and I wasn't. Because I was halfway around the world, I got a painful reminder of how far I'd strayed. If that tree won't make you believe, maybe this will." He pulls up his pant leg to reveal his wooden leg. He sees it. I see it. You see it. We all see it, except for Emma. She sees an ordinary hairy, pasty white leg and asks how that proves anything. August realizes her denial is powerful. "It's preventing you from seeing the truth. [...] You don't want to believe -- after everything you've seen, why can't you just do it." Emma asks why it's so important to him. August says everyone needs her to. Emma's in tears, now. "I don't want them to need me. [...] You're saying that I am responsible for everyone's happiness. That is crap. I didn't ask for that. I don't want it." August counters that she didn't want Henry at first either and now she's fighting like hell for him. Fighting for Henry is all she can handle right now. She wants nothing to do with this. When August tells her she's their only hope, Emma says, "Then you're all screwed."
