If you have not seen this movie, you did not have a childhood. At my house, it's a tradition. Every Christmas (though it is possible we've missed one, I suppose) we watch Charlie Brown. And I love it. :)
And you know what? That's what Christmas really is all about. Ask Linus, he'll tell you. :)
I should start by saying, that this cartoon is so quotable. (Is that a word? *looks it up* Yes, it is. *smiles*) I mean, seriously? It's SO funny and there's so many things from it that I will repeat! :) Listed below are some of my favorites. I found pictures to go with most of them. ;)
"That beautiful sound of cold hard cash. That beautiful sound of clanking nickels."
I love when Lucy tells Charlie Brown what she wants for Christmas :)
Lucy: "I know how you feel, Charlie Brown. I never get what I really want. I always get toys or a bicycle or something."
Charlie Brown: "What do you want?"
Lucy: "Real estate."
--The Christmas Play--
Director: Charlie Brown
"Am I right? I said, am I right?!" (I couldn't find a picture for this one.)
Lucy: "Pigpen, you're the innkeeper."
Pig-pen: "In spite of my outward appearance I shall try to do the part justice."
"All this dust. It's taking the curl out of my naturally curly hair."
Snoopy after kissing Lucy. Meanwhile she wails, "Get hot water! Get some disinfectant! Get some iodine!"
Linus: "I shouldn't be put through such agony!"
Because he's the best! *shoots glare to a certain person who seems to think there can't be more than one 'best'* You know who you are. B-)
"If you really thought I was beautiful you would've spoken up right away. I know when I've been insulted! I know when I've been insulted!"
"Beside I think it needs me."
Linus: "This really brings Christmas close to a person."
Charlie Brown: "Fantastic."
Charlie Brown: "Isn't there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?!"
Linus: "I can tell you what Christmas is about, Charlie Brown."
When Linus wraps the tree with his blanket. :)
"I never thought it was such a bad little tree. It's not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love."
Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!
