Peter Llewelyn Davies: What did you bring me over here for?
Sylvia Llewelyn Davies: Peter.
Peter Llewelyn Davies: But, this is absurd. It’s just a dog.
Sylvia Llewelyn Davies: Come on, darling.
J.M. Barrie: Just a dog? *Just*? Porthos, don’t listen! Porthos dreams of being a bear, and you want to dash those dreams by saying he’s *just* a dog? What a horrible candle-snuffing word. That’s like saying, “He can’t climb that mountain, he’s just a man”, or “That’s not a diamond, it’s just a rock.” Just.
