Think happy thoughts... thank you for believing.

Peter Banning (as Peter Pan in "Hook"): [sees Tinkerbell on the Peter Pan statue] Tink!
Tinkerbell: Say it, Peter. Say it and mean it.
Peter Banning: I believe in fairies.
Tinkerbell: You know that place between sleep and awake? That place where you still remember dreaming?
[Peter nods]
Tinkerbell: That's where I'll always love you... Peter Pan. That's where I'll be waiting.
