SCRIPT:

CAPTION: MRS. DARLING FIRST HEARD OF PETER WHEN SHE WAS TIDYING UP HER CHILDREN’S MINDS

CAPTION: IT IS THE NIGHTLY CUSTOM OF EVERY GOOD MOTHER AFTER HER CHILDREN ARE ASLEEP TO RUMMAGE IN THEIR MINDS, AND PUT THINGS STRAIGHT FOR THE NEXT MORNING.

CAPTION:  IF YOU COULD KEEP AWAKE (BUT OF COURSE YOU CAN’T) YOU WOULD SEE YOUR OWN MOTHER DOING THIS.

CAPTION:  SHE WOULD POUR OVER THE CONTENTS OF YOUR DAY,  MAKING DISCOVERIES  SWEET AND NOT SO SWEET, PRESSING THIS OR THAT TO HER CHEEK AS IF IT WERE AS NICE AS A KITTEN.

CAPTION: WHEN YOU WAKE IN THE MORNING, THE NAUGHTINESS AND EVIL PASSIONS WITH WHICH YOU WENT TO BED HAVE BEEN FOLDED UP AND PLACED AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR MIND

CAPTION: ON TOP, BEAUTIFULLY AIRED, ARE SPREAD YOUR PRETTIER THOUGHTS, READY FOR YOU TO PUT ON.

CAPTION: DOCTOR’S SOMETIMES DRAW MAPS OF OTHER PARTS OF YOU,  BUT CATCH THEM TRYING TO DRAW A MAP OF A CHILD’S MIND.

CAPTION: THERE ARE ZIGZAG LINES ON IT, JUST LIKE YOUR TEMPERATURE ON A CARD, AND THESE ARE PROBABLY ROADS ON THE ISLAND...

CAPTION: ...FOR THE NEVERLAND IS ALWAYS MORE OR LESS AND ISLAND.

Beautiful!

Don't forget the typo:
CAPTION: ...FOR THE NEVERLAND IS ALWAYS MORE OR LESS AND ISLAND.

"AND ISLAND" should be "AN ISLAND"
