  • Captain James Hook: [to Peter as he traps him and grinds his hook near his face] You know you're not really Peter Pan, don't you? This is only a dream. When you wake up, you'll just be Peter Banning - a cold, selfish man who drinks too much, is obsessed with success, and runs and hides from his wife and children!

  • Captain James Hook: [watching Peter try - and fail - to rescue his children] Smee, I don't understand. Why doesn't he fly? Is he not Peter Pan?

    Smee: He's Peter Pan, all right, Captain. He's just been away from Neverland so long, his mind's been junk-tified. He's forgotten everything.

    Captain James Hook: Good form! Bravo!


    Smee: Isn't that wonderful?

    [smashes another clock]

    Captain James Hook: Make time stand still, laddie.

    Jack: For always making promises and breaking them!

    [smashes another clock]

    Jack: For never doing anything with me.

    [smashes another clock]

    Captain James Hook: For a father who's never there, Jack? Jack, for a father who didn't save you on the ship.

    Jack: [starts to cry] Who wouldn't save us...

    Captain James Hook: Who *couldn't* save you, Jack.

    Jack: [tearfully] Well, he - he wouldn't. And he didn't even try. He was there and we were there and he wouldn't try.

    [pulls his cap down as he cries]

    Captain James Hook: [pulls his cap up] Jack... he will try. And the question will be: When the time comes, do you want to be saved? Now, don't you answer now. No, no, no, no, no. Now it's time to be whatever you want to be. Put behind you any thoughts of home; that place of broken promises.

    Jack: That what?

    Captain James Hook: Have I ever made a promise, Jack... I have not kept?

    [gives him a baseball]

    Captain James Hook: Have I, son?

    Captain James Hook: My life is over!

    Smee: Does that mean you've lost your appetite?

    Captain James Hook: Yes. Goodbye.

  • Captain James Hook: Proud and insolent youth! Prepare to meet thy doom!
