— Crane's last words before Bigby kills him.
As Hansel committed global witch hunts against innocent Mundys in the mundane world, Crane turned a blind eye as the man wasn't breaking Fabletown law. Crane eventually became Fabletown's deputy mayor under King Cole with Snow White as his assistant. He held the position for almost 115 years.

Crane was tracked down by Cinderella in Paris under Sheriff Bigby Wolf's orders. Cindy posed as a double agent for the Adversary and positioned herself as Crane's lover. During their relationship, Crane was willing to give away Fabletown secrets and side with the Adversary. Cindy tricked Crane into signing a confession and gathered enough evidence to charge Crane of treason, with Bigby bringing up the charges that drove him to leave Fabletown in the first place, including embezzlement and his less than professional interest in Snow White.
Outside of Fabletown jurisdiction, Bigby sentenced Crane and killed him himself, hitting him in the head with a statue and leaving the body to be discovered by French authorities.
