Peter Pan (1953) Poster


Kathryn Beaumont: Wendy Darling



  • Peter Pan : Tinker Bell! I hereby banish you forever.

    Wendy : Please, not forever.

    Peter Pan : Well, for a week then.

  • Wendy : He can fly!

    John : He can fly!

    Michael : He flewed!

    Peter Pan : Now you try.

    Wendy : I'll think of a mermaid lagoon, underneath a magic moon.

    John : I'll think I'm in a pirate's cave.

    Michael : I think I'll be an Indian brave.

    Peter Pan : Now everybody try.

    Wendy , John , Michael , Peter Pan : One, two, three!

    Wendy , John , Michael : We can fly! We can fly! We can fly!

    [the children all fall to the ground] 

    Peter Pan : This won't do. What's the matter with you? All it takes is faith and trust. Oh! And something I forgot.

    [grabs Tinkerbell] 

    Peter Pan : Dust!

    Wendy , John : Dust?

    Michael : Dust?

    Peter Pan : Yep, just a little bit of pixie dust.

    [taps Tinkerbell a bit with his hand to make golden dust come off and rain down on the kids] 

    Peter Pan : Now, think of the happiest things. It's the same as having wings.

  • Wendy : How did Nana get your shadow, Peter?

    Peter Pan : Chomped at me the other night at the window.

    Wendy : But what were you doing there?

    Peter Pan : I came to listen to your stories.

    Wendy : My stories? But they're all about you.

    Peter Pan : Of course! That's why I like 'em!

  • Peter Pan : Well? Get on with it, girl!

    Wendy : My name is Wendy. Wendy Moira Angela Darling.

    Peter Pan : Wendy's enough.

  • Michael : [referring to Tinker Bell]  Oh, look! A firefly!

    Wendy : A pixie.

    John : Amazing!

    [Tinker Bell angrily gestures at Peter] 

    Michael : What's the pixie doing?

    Peter Pan : Talking.

    Wendy : What did she say?

    Peter Pan : She says you're a big ugly girl!

    [everybody laughs] 

    Wendy : Oh... well, I think she's lovely.

  • Squaw : Squaw get 'em firewood!

    Wendy : Squaw no get 'em firewood! Squaw go home!

  • Captain Hook : Fly! Fly! Fly! You coward!

    Peter Pan : Coward! Me?

    Captain Hook : Ha-ha-ha! You wouldn't dare fight old Hook man-to-man. You'd fly away like a cowardly sparrow!

    Peter Pan : Nobody calls Pan a coward and lives! I'll fight you man-to-man, with one hand behind my back.

    Captain Hook : You mean you won't fly?

    Wendy : No, don't, Peter! It's a trick!

    Peter Pan : I give my word, Hook.

    Captain Hook : Good, then let's have at it!

  • Wendy : What's the chief doing, John?

    John : He's giving an oration in sign language.

    Michael : What's he saying?

    John : He says... "Peter Pan... mighty warrior... save Tigerlily... make big chief... heap glad."

    Wendy : [jokingly]  Well, he certainly doesn't look "heap glad".

  • 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.

  • Wendy : But, Peter, how do we get to Never Land?

    Peter Pan : Fly, of course.

    Wendy : Fly?

    Peter Pan : It's easy! All you have to do is to... is to... is to... Ha! That's funny.

    Wendy : What's the matter? Don't you know?

    Peter Pan : Oh, sure. It's... It's just that I never thought about it before. Say, that's it! You think of a wonderful thought.

  • 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.

    Mr. Darling : Pan... Pirate... Poppycock!

    Wendy : Oh, no, Father!

    John : Oh my gosh!

    Wendy : How can you...?

    Mr. Darling : Absolute poppycock!

  • Wendy : You can't stick it on with soap, Peter. It needs sewing. That's the proper way to do it. Although, come to think of it, I've never thought about it before... um... sewing shadows, I mean.

  • John : [as Captain Hook]  Blast you, Peter Pan!

    Michael : [as Peter Pan]  Take that! Give up, Captain Hook? You give up?

    John : Never! I'll teach you to cut off me hand!

    Wendy : [coming in; chuckling]  Oh, no, John, it was the *left* hand.

    John : Oh, yes. Thank you, Wendy.
