When news broke that Girls star Allison Williams would play Peter Pan in NBC's Dec. 4 live broadcast of the beloved musical, some saw her as a curious choice. But if you think about it for a minute, it slowly becomes clear: Marnie Michaels is the perfect Peter Pan lead.

Obviously Williams won't play Peter exactly the same as her Girls character, but there's something about the HBO show's sense of arrested development that gels perfectly with the story of the Boy Who Never Grew Up.

To illustrate, we've paired scenes from Disney's classic Peter Pan film with some of Marnie's most memorable quotes. Enjoy. (Photo Credits: Everett Collection)
