When I wrote ‘The Shadow Thief,’ I had an obsession with Peter Pan. I get focused on things. In fact, I was an absolute horror to live with at that stage. I had a big fight with my mum because I wanted her to change the windows so Peter Pan could visit me.
Alexandra Adornetto
A lot of nights, and dinners, start like this: some panicked chopping of whatever vegetables I had the foresight to buy, a sheet pan, and my countertop convection oven.
Chris Morocco
Always bake in the center of the oven. A pan placed too close to the bottom of the oven will receive more heat radiating from the oven floor, baking it faster from the bottom. The reverse is true of something baked on the top rack. Always bake in the center for the most even baking and browning all around.
Claire Saffitz

Travis Barker
I still find it quite easy to find my way into a child’s imagination. We’re all Peter Pan ourselves in some respects. Everybody should keep some grip on childhood, even as a grownup.

I heard my name associated with the Peter Pan syndrome more than once. But really, what’s so wrong with Peter Pan? Peter Pan flies. He is a metaphor for dreams and faith.
Mark Burnett
The Brexit vote, the presidential elections in the U.S., a number of the other regional political movements – that’s not a flash in the pan.
James P. Gorman
When done right, sheet pan dinners are a dream come true: Your whole dinner goes into the oven on one pan and comes out ready to eat. But it takes a little finesse and a few rules to get everything done right.
Chris Morocco
My first acquaintance with ‘Peter Pan’ was back when I lived in South London. I was at art school, and I needed to earn money, so I got a job as a stagehand at the Wimbledon Theatre, and ‘Peter Pan’ was on tour there with Donald Sinden, who was playing Captain Hook.
Roger Rees
Any actor I admire and enjoy working with – Sergi Lopez as the bad guy in ‘Pan’s Labyrinth,’ or the little girl who played young Mako in ‘Pacific Rim,’ it makes no difference – I like actors with a very strong centre.
Guillermo del Toro

Tom Weston-Jones
I love little Peter Pan collars and little puff sleeves.
Busy Philipps
I’ve read a hundred fantastic scripts that didn’t pan out as films, and I completely put that on the directors. I’ve also read some mediocre scripts that have ended up being amazing, and I credit that to the directors. They’re the storytellers. If you don’t have a good storyteller, you really have nothing.
Chris Evans
I’m not wholesome at all. I detest homey things like cooking and bed-making and Peter Pan collars. I like to wear slacks and play golf.

James Lind
‘Peter Pan’ is a beloved property. It’s a property that was brought to the screen many, many times before, so one has to not only justify the reasons why one might make a ‘Peter Pan’ movie in 2018, 2019 or whatever, but you also have to do justice to the source material.
David Lowery
I write in freehand equivalents because measuring, to me, takes away from the creative process of cooking. Two turns of the pan with EVOO is about two tablespoons.
Rachael Ray
The most fascinating thing for me is that ‘Peter Pan’ is a fairy tale, but now, this Filipino kid is a part of the folklore. Can you imagine telling the story of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ or ‘Cinderella,’ and all of a sudden there’s a Filipino kid in there after all these years?
Dante Basco
I used to have a lot of recurring dreams about Captain Hook when I was a little kid, which I remember very vividly. But I think I just really liked Peter Pan a lot, and ‘Hook’ was my favorite movie.

Surprisingly, fish works great for sheet pan dinners because it cooks quickly through direct pan contact.

I think that when you are struggling as an actor, you imagine that if things were to pan out, everything in your life would change, But really, it’s not so different. You’re still pursuing good work. You still panic that you’re doing it all wrong.
Katherine Waterston
This whole acting thing was always just for me and was always an absolute shot in the dark. If it didn’t pan out, I had my hammer and tool belt, banging nails again tomorrow if I had to.
Matt LeBlanc
One of the hazards of making a major discovery early in your career is the burden of expectation, not helped in my case by becoming a wife and mother soon afterwards. I’m sure some people think it was a flash in the pan.
Jocelyn Bell Burnell
My SAG card, the first TV job that I ever had was ‘Pan Am’ as a reporter. But that may not be entirely true. I did some motion capture work, doing reshoots on a video game.
Colin Donnell
That’s the beauty of creative industry that when one thing does not pan out, you have other things to do.
Abhishek Banerjee
I’m a stoic. When something goes down the pan, enjoy it. Make the best out of a bad job. I’m not the sort of person who would break down and weep if my trousers split. It is funny, and I don’t really get embarrassed.
Vic Reeves
It took me so many years to move out. I’m definitely a bit of a Peter Pan, reluctant to grow up. It all seemed really nice at home-why change it? Part of me would prefer not to have any responsibility whatsoever.
Helena Bonham Carter
Many call for cooking pasta directly in milk, a technique that works okay, but it can lead to scorching if you’re not super careful with stirring. I prefer the evaporated-milk route because it ensures a clean pan with no burnt bits on the bottom.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
A plancha is just a hot flat surface. So if you think about it, anything is a plancha, like a saute pan or a griddle. A la plancha is the perfect way to cook for a crowd.
Jose Andres
I hope I’ll die on stage at the age at 105, playing Peter Pan.
Joan Fontaine
When I was a kid, I figured I would be a physicist when I grew up, and then I would write science fiction on the side. The physicist thing didn’t pan out, but writing science fiction on the side did.
Ted Chiang
We can do little things for God; I turn the cake that is frying on the pan for love of him, and that done, if there is nothing else to call me, I prostrate myself in worship before him, who has given me grace to work; afterwards I rise happier than a king.
Brother Lawrence
Sometimes I pick parts because I think, ‘OK, it scares me,’ and that’s an indication it’s going to be a good movie for me to do. Sometimes that leaves me in a terrible… Well, it doesn’t always pan out, you know?
Casey Affleck
When I was about six or seven, I did this character reenactment performance where I read a monologue from ‘Peter Pan.’ I got into a complete Peter Pan outfit and did a little paragraph from the script – and I ended up winning an award for it.
Levi Miller
It’s funny I’m talking to ‘Rolling Stone’ right now, because back then, it was like, ‘Punk rock? Put it back. It’s just a flash in the pan.’
Glenn Danzig
The last Pan Am Games in 2011 was one of the best experiences in my career. It was the first time women’s boxing was in the Pan Am Games and any major games, and I had the opportunity to box in the first women’s boxing fight and then went on to win gold.
Mandy Bujold
To be honest, Peter Pan was one of those fairy tales that I sort of related to, and I think that’s the case with a lot of kids. The whole idea of escapism really resonates with a lot of kids.
Robbie Kay
It’s kind of a Peter Pan thing: I want to stay a kid. I love it. But I guess you have to grow up someday. Everybody does.
Kodi Smit-McPhee
I don’t like to have to pan for gold when I read.
Jonathan Carroll
You’re going up against the billionaire boys’ club or trying to find your way into something you have no basis for, and it’s bigger than anything you ever imagined – and then actually having that work. Having that risk pan out. It taught me to be very fearless – maybe too fearless in the end.
Molly Bloom
Sometimes a leap of faith doesn’t pan out.
Edwin Catmull
My first live performance was the lead in ‘Peter Pan.’
Rocky Carroll
They’ve got to deliver twenty-six episodes a season and they’re not going to beat their heads up against a wall if they feel something didn’t, like, pan out the way they had hoped.
Rene Auberjonois
Everything I do, I do it with the hope that people will watch it more than twice. Whether it’s ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ or ‘Pacific Rim’ or the opening of ‘The Simpsons,’ I do it with that hope.
Guillermo del Toro
The most used thing I have is my wok. I prefer it to a pan or pot. It is my wonder. They’re really easy to clean, I am a lazy cook like that, so it appeals.
John Torode
It’s always been my philosophy to keep a lot of balls in the air. With music, most things don’t pan out, so you try to increase your odds by being involved with a million things at once.
Adam Schlesinger
We cannot forget about Rachel Maddow. She is the Peter Pan of MSNBC. But instead of never growing up, she never gets to the point.
Michelle Wolf
People called rock & roll ‘African music.’ They called it ‘voodoo music.’ They said that it would drive the kids insane. They said that it was just a flash in the pan – the same thing that they always used to say about hip-hop.

Geeta Phogat
I wasn’t a Pan Am pilot or any other kind of pilot.

We’ve invested in Newark’s children, the schools and teachers, and these are long-term bets that need a number of years to really pan out. We’ve seen and learned how important it is to listen to the community and really get a sense of what they need and want. And it’s a long journey.
Priscilla Chan
Cooking is not really safe for me because a pan of boiling water is about as big as I am, so I have to be really careful when I’m cooking not to spill it on myself.
Fredrick Brennan
The problem with when you look at eBay is that you can put a pair of Jordans next to a frying pan. It’s an altogether different experience compared to having some editorial around it and well-curated experience.
Troy Carter
We make a series of investments, some will pan out and some won’t.

Geraldine McCaughrean
When we were filming, I thought that I was Peter Pan, you know? I thought I was the coolest kid in the world, so I wound up being the coolest kid in the world.
Jeremy Sumpter

Craig Zadan

Joshua Oppenheimer
People forget I’m that old. They still think it’s 1988, when I was 26. They think I’m Peter Pan!
Shaun Ryder
I wasn’t really using Twitter before ‘Pan Am.’ It was a good way to promote the show and be with the viewers on Sunday and be available to them and take questions.
Karine Vanasse
My Norwegian wife Aase was a Pan Am stewardess back in the Seventies when we met. She was very attractive, and we became good friends, but I was travelling a lot and she was jetting back and forth across the Atlantic, so it was a while before we got together.
Gilbert O’Sullivan
Loki has been written as bi, he’s also been written as pan, and it just felt like this is a show about his identity, so let’s acknowledge it and make it canon.
Kate Herron

Joe Wurzelbacher

Eric Hoffer
When people say, ‘Hey, wanna come to our house for dinner?’ I say, ‘Yeah, what should I bring?’ They say, ‘How about the dessert?’ I just don’t skimp on the dessert. I make it the yummy way it should be made, and then I just don’t eat the whole pan.
Summer Sanders
Typically, the thinner the gauge of a pan, the more intense the hot and cool spots that form on its interior, which can lead to uneven cooking.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
Too often in this world, the things you root for – whether sports teams or spouses to recover from horrible diseases – don’t quite pan out.
Charles Bock
I’ve seen pretty much all the ‘Peter Pan’s except for one of the further back ones where the boy had curly hair. I can’t remember. I really loved the 2003 version. I really loved that one because that was around the year I was born. That’s quite funny.
Levi Miller
It’s so fun to make up stories, but I find that the songs that I’m most proud of came from a real thing in my life – ‘Peter Pan’ being one of those.
Kelsea Ballerini
I’ve always liked higher necklines, and Mia Farrow is my ultimate inspiration. The baby-doll dresses with big Peter Pan collars that she wore in ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ were iconic. I’ve been drawn to similar looks ever since.
Lucy Boynton
If you’re going to saute something, lightly spray olive oil in the pan or on veggies before you serve them. It adds a nice flavor. We grill a lot, so I’ll use a little on my corn or my shrimp.
Alison Sweeney
As is always the way with pancakes, the first hotcake to come out of the pan will probably be a bit misshapen. Just scoff it, and carry on with the rest.
Yotam Ottolenghi
Pop music was supposed to be a flash in the pan, but here we are 50 years later and it means something to us, and it always will do. It’s incredibly important.
Paul Weller
I’m not saying that women shouldn’t pursue careers, but if it is going to be equal in the workplace, it should certainly pan out to be a little bit more equal in the home, too.
Imelda May
People sometimes forget all the films that we’ve done. They remember the likes of ‘Malcolm X’ and ‘Do the Right Thing.’ But I’ve been working since 1986. From the beginning, I was determined to not just be a flash in the pan. I’ve got to keep up with Woody Allen. He’s lapping me.
Spike Lee
I don’t know a kid who grew up in the ’90s who wasn’t obsessed with Disney, and I guess I never grew out of that phase, honestly. It’s not just Disney: it’s anything that has to do with fairytales for me. I think I just have Peter Pan Syndrome or something.
Todrick Hall
Cooking is physical; it’s easier to learn than playing golf. You chop food, you pan fry it – what else is there to it?
Alvin Leung
It can be easy to just be a professional half the time, and you may see half the results, but when you’re consistent, you can see your full results and you can pan out to be who you want to be year by year.
D’Angelo Russell
I’ve got Peter Pan syndrome. It’s not that I refuse to grow up – I love building businesses; I want to be a good husband, a good father. But I don’t want to be boring. I don’t want to be normal.
Chip Gaines
I was able to do Classics, the U.S. national championships and the Pan American Games and feel like I improved with each meet, but I was still struggling with a lot of residual pain from the two surgeries.
Shawn Johnson
The standard nine- by 13-inch baking pan is essential for every kitchen. This is the perfect vessel for bubbling casseroles, cheesy lasagnas, even for roasting meat and vegetables.
Sohla El-Waylly
A lot of people who want to cook with less fat are surprised by that. You can cook vegetables in a little water in a covered pan and then throw the fat into the residual liquid to coat them.
Sally Schneider
This plucky NASA telescope is able to find planets en masse. If you compare planet hunting to prospecting for gold, then Kepler is equivalent to trading in your trusty pan for a diesel-powered sluice box.
Seth Shostak
My mind is stuffed with quotes. Lines, couplets, paragraphs, stanzas; Bessie Smith, Stevie Smith, Tin Pan Alley, rock and roll. They tease or lead or hurl me into a dream space of jostling languages that I need to bask in each day in order to write.
Margo Jefferson
I dressed like Leslie Caron as a teenager: soft school pleats, Peter Pan collars.
Mary Quant
I used to go to the supermarket dressed as Peter Pan when I was about five years old.

Anthony A. Williams
Hurricane Irene’s advance coverage was heavy on worst-case scenarios. Thank goodness they didn’t pan out.
Steve Rushin
Our goal was to show people a vision of food they hadn’t seen before. So, I had this idea of… let’s cut all these things in half, and show a picture of the food in the pan, in the oven.
Nathan Myhrvold
I’m Welsh. We didn’t do ‘Peter Pan.’ We have far more ancient legends to be put to sleep with.
Rhys Ifans
It is different because ‘Grahan’ was promoted Pan India and audience from all over the country watched it. It was obviously a very different feeling and a different kind of success.
Wamiqa Gabbi
There’s nothing ‘flash in the pan’ about my career. It’s been built fan by fan, city by city.
Iliza Shlesinger
When I wake up, I expect things to be good. If they’re not, then I try to set about trying to make them as good as I can ’cause I know I’m gonna have to live that day anyway. So why not try to make the most of it if you can? Some days, they pan out a little better than others, but you still gotta always just try.
Dolly Parton
I live in Surrey, but up until the age of eight I lived in London. And the way I heard about this ‘Peter Pan’ film was there was an open-call audition that I’d heard about, or read about, and I just thought, ‘Oh, I’ll go along for the fun.’ Because I never dreamed in a million years I’d ever get it.
Rachel Hurd-Wood
Peter Pan is kind of this metaphor for someone or something that makes you feel at home, that brings you out of loneliness, that makes you free. And that’s exactly what music does for me.
Ruth B
Pan Sonic sound like they are playing music of the future made with the electric instruments of yesterday.
Johann Johannsson
Back in the 1950s and ’60s, J. M. Barrie’s ‘Peter Pan’ – starring Mary Martin and Cyril Ritchard – was regularly aired on network television during the Christmas season. I must have seen it four or five times and remember, in particular, Ritchard’s gloriously camp interpretation of Captain Hook.
Michael Dirda
Making a big pan of soup and keeping it in the fridge is a good idea… and it’s a whole lot tastier than packet and tinned soups.
Dave Myers
The thing with ‘Peter Pan’ is it’s been done so well so many times.
Edward Kitsis
It’s been amazing to play a character that’s known by so many people, especially because everyone knows at least something about Peter Pan.
Levi Miller
‘The Admirable Crichton’ is probably Barrie’s most famous work after ‘Peter Pan’, nearly a pendant to that classic.
Michael Dirda
It’s the Peter Pan in me, I don’t think I’ll ever grow up.
Jason Behr
I don’t want to be a flash in the pan. I don’t want people to just remember me for one thing.
Sterling K. Brown
There’s not one Tin Pan Alley song on my record.
Branford Marsalis
The best restraint is old-fashioned market discipline, in which financial traders know that they, personally, will lose a ton of money if they take risky bets that don’t pan out.
David Ignatius
I’ve never seen anyone handling pans in the streets of New York, and if I did I doubt I’d give them money, unless I needed a pan. I do give money to homeless people, whether they ask or no.
Hamish Linklater
