Peter Banning/Peter Pan
Captain James Hook
Orphan Peter Banning has grown up to be a cutthroat merger and acquisitions lawyer, and is married to Wendy's granddaughter Moira. When Captain Hook kidnaps his son and daughter, Peter discovers that he is really Peter Pan, and he returns to Neverland with Tinkerbell. With the help of Tink and the Lost Boys, he must remember how to be Peter Pan again in order to battle Captain Hook and save his children.
Have to fly. Have to fight. Have to crow. Have to save Maggie. Have to save Jack. Hook is back.
It's time to tell you, at last.
Tell me what?
How far back can you remember, Peter?
I remember the hospital on Great Ormond Street. You worked with orphans. You taught me to read. You arranged for the adoption by my American parents, Hank and Jane Banning.
You were 12, nearly 13. I mean, before that.
There's nothing before that.
Try, Peter. Do try.
You know, when I was young... no other girl held your favour the way I did. I had expected you to alight on the church and forbid my vows on my wedding day. I wore a pink satin sash. But you didn't come.
Yes, I was an old lady when I wrapped you in blankets. A grandmother. With my 13-year old granddaughter asleep in the bed. Moira. And when you saw her... that was when you decided not to go back to Neverland.
To Never Never Land.
You have to make youself remember.
Peter, don't you know who you are?
Firefly from hell! Big damn bug!
I do not believe in faeries.
Every time someone says "I do not believe in faeries," somewhere a faerie falls down dead.
I DO NOT BELIEVE IN FAERIES!!!
All right. Now, who am I?
Uh, you're... uhm... you're a complex Freudian hallucination, having something to do with my mother. I don't know why you have wings, but you have very lovely legs and you're a very nice tiny person and what am I saying? I don't know who my mother was, I'm an orphan and I've never taken drugs, because I missed the sixties, I was an accountant.
Where are your parents? Who's in charge here? No. No, Mr. Skunkhead-with-too-much-mousse, you're just a punk kid. I want to speak to a grown-up!
All grown-ups are pirates!
We kill pirates.
I'm not a pirate. It so happens I am a lawyer!
Kill the lawyer!
Kill the lawyer!!!
I'm not that kind of lawyer!
Eat your heart out, you crinkled, wrinkled fat bag!
You're a very ill-mannered young man, did you know that?
You slug-eating worm.
Come on, you can do better than that!
I can't believe you're encouraging them.
Show me your fastball, dust brain! You paunchy, sag-bottomed puke-pot!
You're a very poor role model for these kids, you know that? I bet you don't have a fourth grade reading level.
Someone has a severe caca mouth, do you know that?
You're a fart factory! Slug-slime sack of rat guts and cat vomit, cheesy scab, picked pimple-squeezing finger bandage! A week old maggot burger with everything on it and flies on the side!
Substitute chemistry teacher.
Come on, Rufio, hit him back.
In your face, camel cake!
In your rear, cow derriere!
Lying, crying, spying, prying ultra-pig!
You lewd, crude, rude, bag of pre-chewed food dude!
You... you man! Stupid, stupid man!
Rufio, if I'm a maggot burger, why don't you just EAT ME?! You two-toned, zebra-headed, slime-coated, pimple-farming, paramecium brain munching on your own mucus, suffering from Peter Pan envy!
What's a paramecium brain?
I'll tell you what a paramecium is! That's the paramecium! It's a one-celled critter with no brain that can't fly! Don't mess with me man, I'm a lawyer!
Let me in! Please.
Excuse me, do you have an appointment?
What did I tell you about this window? Always keep it open!
I have to take this. Brad?! Have you ever known what it's like to feel the total exhilaration of really flying? Feel this.
What if Peter Pan grew up?

There were frequent good-natured "battle of wits" exchanges between Robin and Dustin Hoffman. In one incident, Hoffman was not happy with his performance and asked for the scene to be re-shot. Robin quipped, "Try acting"--a reference to the Hoffman/Laurence Olivier exchange on the set of Marathon Man (1976).
Robin's upper body and arms were shaved for his role in the film.
The word "bangerang" is actually a Jamaican slang word, defined as "a hubbub, uproar, disorder, or disturbance."
