  • NOTES (2)


    • Spider-Man: (after hanging Harry from the rafters) Just pretend you're the lead in Peter Pan.
      Peter Pan is a stage play created by J. M. Barrie in 1904 that is about a boy that never grows up and can fly. The lead actor that would play Peter Pan would normally be attached to a hoist/pully system to give the illusion of flight.
