"I suppose we just have to wait until next time."
"Next time? I don’t remember asking."
"It’s because it’s my turn. Will you go out with me again?"

"Do you know when I was born?" I asked, looking up. I knew my hair was wild and my eyes staring, and I didn’t care. "On the twentieth of October, in the Year of Our Lord nineteen hundred and eighteen. Do you hear me?" I demanded, for he was blinking at me unmoving, as though paying no attention to a word I said. "I said nineteen eighteen! Nearly two hundred years from now! Do you hear?" I was shouting now, and he nodded slowly."I hear," he said softly.

Dougal’s motives for making Claire marry Jamie


“Dougal, it appears, is killing two birds with one stone; while he has sufficient humanitarian instincts to wish to keep Claire away from Randall (and is still curious enough about her to want to find out for himself what she’s do­ing there), his principal motive is to stifle any chance of his nephew attaining the chieftainship of clan MacKenzie—for the clan will never accept Jamie as leader with an English wife.”

I don’t know what Rumplestiltskin (Mr. Gold) is so afraid of when he warns Hook about the effects of reattaching his hand can have. From what I have seen of Killian Jones, he wasn’t that bad before he lost his hand. A fierce and loyal brother and lover. Or as he himself says, 

So is Rumple in fact just worried about his own skin?

O love, daughter of delights, a king is held captive in your tresses,  I murmured to myself, and I was in her arms, and we fell together onto the bare floor of the kitchen, and, whether on my own initiative or through her wiles, I found myself free of my novice’s habit and we felt no shame at our bodies and cuncta erant bona.

"While laying plans for her escape and return to the stone circle, Claire becomes better acquainted with the young man whose wound she had dressed, a clansman named Jamie, whom she at first takes for a groom at the castle. She discovers her mistake; Jamie is in fact the nephew of Colum and his brother, Dougal (the clan’s war chieftain, who leads the men to battle in place of his crippled brother), though his father belonged to clan Fraser.”
