All children like Snee, and Hook is disgruntled because children do not feel the same for him. Finally he has had enough.
Hook tells the pirates to bring the boys up on deck. He plans to make them all walk the plank except two. Hook needs two boys for cabin boys. The Lost Boys tell Hook their mother would not want them to be pirates. Hook then turns to John and Michael.

Since Hook is upset, he brings Wendy up to witness the event. Wendy shows her disgust at the dirty ship and Hook’s dirty clothes. When Hook sees this, he tells Wendy to say last words to the boys. She tells them, “I feel that I have a message to you from your real mothers and it is this: ‘We hope our sons will die like English gentlemen.'” Then the pirates tie Wendy to the mast.
