Mr. Darling: [high, mocking voice] Goodness gracious, whatever shall we do?
Mrs. Darling: But George...
Mr. Darling: Sound the alarm!

Mr. Darling: [seeing the pirate ship floating in the sky back to Never Land] You know, I have the strangest feeling that I've seen that ship before. A long time ago, when I was very young.

Mr. Darling: Wendy, haven't I warned you? Stuffing the boys heads with a lot of silly stories?
Wendy: Oh, but they aren't.
Mr. Darling: I say they are. Captain Crook! Peter Pirate!
Wendy: Peter Pan, Father.

John: Oh my gosh!
Wendy: How can you...?
Mr. Darling: Absolute poppycock!

[Mr. Darling is putting out Nana for the night and he leashes her with a rope to her doghouse. She looks at him sadly]
Mr. Darling: Dash it all, Nana, don't look at me like that. It's nothing personal, it's just that... well, you're not really a nurse at all, you're... well, a dog. And the children aren't puppies, they're people. And sooner or later, Nana, people have to grow up.

Wendy: Oh! Mother, we're back!
Mr. Darling: Back?
Wendy: All except the lost boys. They were not quite ready.
Mr. Darling: Lost boys? Ready?
Wendy: To grow up. That's why they went back to Neverland.
Mr. Darling: Neverland?
Wendy: Well... I am.
Mr. Darling: Am...?
Wendy: Uh... ready to grow up.
Mr. Darling: Oh, oh! Well, my dear...
Wendy: Oh, we had such a wonderful time! Well, except when we were kidnapped...
Mr. Darling: Kidnapped?
Wendy: We had lots of fun with Tinker Bell, and the mermaids, and Peter Pan! Oh, he was the most wonderful person of them all! And then we called him a codfish!
Wendy: Uh... Captain Hook, I mean.
[calms down and starts talking in a dreamy tone]
Wendy: And then... we sailed away on a ship in the sky.
Mr. Darling: [weirded out by Wendy's story, yawns] Mary, I'm going to bed.

Mrs. Darling: George, dear, do hurry. We mustn't be late for the party, you know.
Narrator: Mrs. Darling believed that Peter Pan was a great hero, but Mr. Darling...
Mr. Darling: Mary, unless I find my cufflinks, we don't go to the party! If we don't go to the party, I can never show my face in the office again! If I could ever...
[hits his head on the drawer]
Mr. Darling: Ouch!
Narrator: Well... Mr. Darling was a practical man.

Peter Pan (1960) (TV)
Mr. Darling: [to Mrs. Darling] I warn you of this, Mother, that if this tie does not go round my neck, we don't go out to dinner tonight. And if we don't go out to dinner tonight, I never go to the office again. And if I never go to the office again, you and I will starve, and our children will be flung into the streets.

Mrs. Darling: George, we must keep Nana.
Mrs. Darling: I'll tell you why.
[to the kids]
Mrs. Darling: Get ready for bed, children, now run along...
[children leave]
Mrs. Darling: George, tonight I saw a face at the window.
Mr. Darling: Face at the window, two floors up?
Mrs. Darling: It was the face of a little boy, he was trying to get in.
Mr. Darling: That's impossible.
Mrs. Darling: But that's not the first time I've seen that boy.
Mr. Darling: Oh?
Mrs. Darling: The first time was a week ago, I remember because it was Nana's night off... I was sitting over there by the fire, when suddenly I felt a draft, as though the window were open... I looked... and I saw that boy in the room, I screamed. Just then Nana came in and sprang at him at once, the boy leapt through the window, Nana closed it quickly, but it was too late to catch him.
Mr. Darling: I thought so.
Mrs. Darling: But wait! *He* escaped, but his shadow hadn't time to get out. I hid it...
[takes it out of Wendy's dresser drawer]
Mrs. Darling: I rolled it up, and here it is.
Mr. Darling: Aha! Hmmm... Well, I don't think it's anyone we know, though he does look a scoundrel.
Mrs. Darling: You know, George, I think he comes back trying to get his shadow.
Mr. Darling: I dare say...
Mrs. Darling: But wait, I haven't told you all. The boy was not quite alone; he was accompanied by... Well, I don't know how to describe it... by a bolt of light no bigger than my fist that darted around the room, like a living thing.
Mr. Darling: This is most unusual.
Mrs. Darling: George, what can it mean?
Mr. Darling: What indeed? What indeed?

[indicating Nanna]
Mr. Darling: is not a nurse. This... is a dog.
