We are more alike than you think.

Wicked Witch! The Seven Dwarfs

saved Snow White, and what happened?

Oh, what's it to you?

They left you the unfairest of them all.

Now here you are,

hustling pool to get your next meal.

How does that feel?

Pretty unfair.

And you!

Your star puppet abandons the show

to go and find his father.

I hate that little wooden puppet.

And Hook.

Need I say more?

- And you, Frumpypigskin!

- Rumpelstiltskin.

Where's that firstborn

you were promised?

Mabel. Remember how you

couldn't get your little fat foot...

...into that tiny glass slipper?

Cinderella is

in Far Far Away right now...

...eating bonbons, cavorting with

every last fairy tale creature...

...that has ever done you wrong!

Once upon a time, someone decided

that we were the losers.

But there are

two sides to every story...

...and our side has not been told!

So who will join me? Who wants

to come out on top for once?

Who wants their...

..."happily ever after"?

This way, gents.

It's out of my hands, senorita. The

winds of fate have blown on my destiny.

But I will never forget you.

You are the love of my life.

As are you.

And, uh, you.

I don't know you, but I'd like to.

I got to go!

I don't wanna leave you either.

But you know how Shrek is.

The dude's lost without me.

But don't worry. I'll send you

airmail kisses every day!

Be strong, babies.

Coco, Peanut, listen to your mama.

Bananas, no roasting marshmallows

on your sister's head.

That's my special boy!

Come here, all of you!

Give your daddy a big hug!


Maybe you should just stay and be King.

Come on. There's no way

I could run a kingdom.

That's why your cousin Arthur

is a perfect choice.

It's not that. You see...

And if he gives me trouble,

I always have persuasion and reason.
