Peter Pan

“Over there, Tink. In its den. Is it there?”

“Stop playing and help me find my shadow! Shadow … shadow …”

“I came to listen to the stories.”

“All it takes is faith and trust, oh! and something I forgot: dust.”

“Now, think of the happiest things. It’s the same as having wings!”

“There it is, Wendy! Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning.”

“But mother, I don’t want to grow up.”

“You can’t stick it on with soap, Peter! It needs sewing. That’s the proper way to do it.”

“Blast that Peter Pan. If I could only find his hideout, I’d trap him in his lair.”

“Why, you blithering blockhead!”

“Look alive, you swabs! We’ve got him this time, Mr. Smee.”

“That cursed Peter Pan, making a fool out of me.”
