Michael: Ready!
Peter Pan: [singing] Don't forget, don't be slow/ready set, here we go/Wendy, Michael, John... Tinkerbell, come on/Hurry up after me for soon I will be gone, I'm flying!

[first lines]
Narrator: Some say that as we grow up, we become different people at different ages, but I don't believe this. I think we remain the same throughout, merely passing in these years from one room, to another, but always in the same house. If we unlock the rooms of the far past, we can look in and see ourselves beginning to become you and me.
Wendy, John: [dressed up like their parents and dancing] One-two-three, one-two-three, one-two-three, one-two-three.

Wendy: We're doing an act.
John: Yes, we're playing you and Father, I'm Father. A little less noise there, a little less noise!

Mrs. Darling: Well, we'll soon fix that.
[takes John's hat off and puts it on Michael]
Mrs. Darling: There. May I have this dance, Mr. Darling?


"Once Upon a Time: Second Star to the Right (#2.21)" (2013)
John Darling: The shadow, is it coming tonight?
Wendy Darling: Oh, I hope so!
Baelfire: The... what?
Wendy Darling: A few weeks ago, right about the time you got here, this shadow, it came to the window. Only it's not attached to a body. And it can do so many wonderful things, like... like change its shape and fly and travel between worlds. And do you know why? Because it has magic!
Baelfire: Whatever you do, promise me you'll never open that window again. Promise me you won't talk to the shadow.
Wendy Darling: Don't be silly.
Baelfire: Magic is dangerous! It always comes with a price.
John Darling: You're just saying that 'cause you don't believe.
Baelfire: No, I do believe. That's the point, I've seen magic. I come from another land. A land where magic is everywhere.
Wendy Darling: Is that really true? Because it sounds wonderful!
Baelfire: It isn't what you think. Magic is the reason I left. I lost everything because of it.
Wendy Darling: Your mother and father.
Baelfire: Magic destroyed my family. I don't want it to do the same to yours.
