Wendy Darling Quotes in Hook (1991)
Wendy Darling Quotes:
[Peter recalls a memory from his childhood]
Wendy Darling: Peter, I can't come with you. I've forgotten how to fly. I'm old, Peter. Ever so much more than twenty. I grew up a long time ago.
Young Peter Pan: No, no, no! You promised!
Wendy Darling: I have children of my own now. They have children of their own. That's my grandchild, Moira, asleep in the bed.
Peter Banning: [voiceover] When I saw her lying there sleeping, that moment, something changed in me forever.
Young Peter Pan: I shall give her a kiss.
[takes out a thimble]
Wendy Darling: No. No, Peter. No buttons. No thimbles. I couldn't bear to see Moira's heart to be broken when she finds she can't keep you.
Young Peter Pan: No. I mean a real kiss.
Wendy Darling: Boy, why are you crying?
Peter Banning: I don't know. A tear for every happy thought.
Wendy Darling: So, Peter, you've become a pirate.
Wendy Darling: [leaving the room after putting Maggie and Jack to bed] Dear night-lights, protect my sleeping babes. Burn clear and steadfast tonight.
Maggie: But Jack says you're not the really real Wendy.
Wendy Darling: Ahh. Well, do you see where Jack is, hmm? Well, that is the same window and this is the same room where we made up our bedtime stories about Peter and Neverland and scary old Captain Hook. And did you know? Mr. Barrie - well, Sir James, our neighbor - he loved our stories so much, he wrote them all down in a book, oh dear me, eighty years ago.
Maggie: You're really old.
Wendy Darling: That's very true.
Wendy Darling: The stories are true! I swear to you! I swear on everything I adore, and now he's come back to seek his revenge. The fight isn't over for Captain James Hook. He wants you back. He knows that you'll follow Jack and Maggie to the ends of the earth and beyond. And by heaven, you must find a way. Only you can save your children. Somehow, you must go back. You must make yourself remember.
Peter Banning: Remember what?
Wendy Darling: Peter, don't you know who you are?
[Wendy opens up the book and shows an illustration of Peter Pan as Peter looks in disbelief]
Wendy Darling: [whispers] Yes, boy. Yes.
Wendy Darling: What is this?
[she points to Jack's baseball mitt]
Jack: Oh, it's a baseball glove. You can catch things with it, take hot things out of the oven, or you can even hit your sister with it.
Wendy Darling: Jane dear, will you promise me something? Promise you'll watch over Danny whatever might happen.
Wendy Darling: You and your brother are going away for a while.
Jane: Away? Where?
Wendy Darling: All the children are being evacuated into the country. It's so dangerous here. But you'll be safe there, both of you.
Jane: I'm not going. I'm staying here.
Wendy Darling: But dear, an order has been issued. Every child must go.
Jane: But daddy said that I'm supposed...
Wendy Darling: I know, dear, but you can take care of Danny. Tell him Peter Pan stories. He needs them, Jane. And so you do. Please, dear, promise me.
Jane: No! I will not promise!
Wendy Darling: Oh, Jane. We'll be together again. You must have faith.
[kicks stuffed monkey and throws pillow to the floor]
Jane: Trust? Pixie Dust? Mother, those are just words from your stories. They don't mean anything.
Wendy Darling: Jane, how could you treat your brother that way? You think you're very grown up, but you have a great deal to learn.
