Peter: (when asked if he would return for a "Lost World" movie) Yes, of course I would. I would jump at the chance of putting on the old overcoat.
Peter: I am blest and very lucky. Every night, before I go to bed, I go outside and we just sit up on the hill, you know, with nothing. You can't see a house or a road. We're pretty remote. And I go out and I look at the stars in the sky...and drink (in) the universe. Then I come inside and go to bed and dream some more.
