Peter (Nina Boucicault) following his defeat of Captain Hook, in a tableaux based on the celebrated painting by Orchardson of Napoleon on the Bellerophon, following his defeat at Waterloo. "That's who I am," proclaims Peter - "Napoleon! He was little too ..." The line was probably put in for the benefit of Charles Frohman, who was a devoted admirer of the French emperor, and had a statue of him on his desk. The line was later cut.

From the original 1904 production.
