Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown (1975) (TV)
Violet: Charlie Brown, we've been feeling awfully guilty about not giving you a valentine this year. Here, I've erased my name from this one. I'd like you to have it.
Schroeder: Hold on there! What do you think you're doing? Who do you think you are? Where were you yesterday when everyone else was giving out valentines? Is kindness and thoughtfulness something you can make retroactive? Don't you think he has any feelings? You and your friends are the most thoughtless bunch I've ever known. You don't care *anything* about Charlie Brown! You just hate to feel guilty! And now you have the nerve to come around one day later and offer him a used valentine just to ease your conscience! Well let me tell you something: Charlie Brown doesn't need your...
Charlie Brown: Don't listen to him! I'll take it!

Linus van Pelt: [after he tries to stuff his valentine box of candy for Miss Othmar into the valentines box] I can't get my valentine in the box. Is it all right if I give it personally?
Schroeder: Miss Othmar, is it okay if Linus presents his valentine personally?
[we hear an indistinct trombone blabbering, which is really Miss Othmar]
Schroeder: She said that would be delightful.
Linus van Pelt: [happily] She said that'd be delightful!
[going to his desk]
Linus van Pelt: This is gonna be better than I expected.

Charlie Brown: [to Schroeder] Did you see my name on any of those valentines?
Schroeder: No, I haven't been paying any attention. What's that briefcase for?
Charlie Brown: Well, in case I get a lot of valentines, I'll want to have something to carry them in.

Schroeder: [after everyone except Charlie Brown receives their valentines] Well, that's it. Happy Valentine's Day, everybody. Refreshments will be served in the back.
Charlie Brown: Are you sure there's none for me?
Schroeder: Yep, none.


Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown (2011) (V)
Lucy van Pelt: You know, Schroeder, I bet if we were married some day, we'd be very happy. While you were practicing the piano, I'd be in the kitchen making your breakfast. Then I'd bring it in like this and set it out all nice, and prop out your favorite newspaper and pour your coffee. Wouldn't that be romantic?
Schroeder: [screams] No!

Lucy van Pelt: Schroeder, if I told you I had the feeling you and I would get married someday, would you chuckle lightly or laugh loudly long?
Schroeder: I don't know. It's kind of hard to say off hand.
Lucy van Pelt: Schroeder, I have the feeling you and I would get married someday.
Schroeder: [laughs loudly]
Lucy van Pelt: Loud and long.


You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown (1972) (TV)
Schroeder: The candidate whose name I am presenting to the electorate possesses the same unique combination of qualities as those possessed by Beethoven, the greatest of all composers. That wonderful pianist, and that tower of strength. Linus is sort of like that, too.

Linus van Pelt: If I'm elected student body president, I will purge the kingdom! My administration will release us from our spiritual Babylon! My andministration will bring down all false idols in high places!
Schroeder: I wonder why the principal looks so pale?

Lucy van Pelt, Linus van Pelt, Schroeder, Sally Brown: [singing] You're a good man, Charlie Brown! You're a prince, and a prince could be king! With a heart such as yours, you can open any doors; you can go out and do anything! You could be king, Charlie Brown! You could be king!
Lucy van Pelt: [spoken] If only you weren't so wishy-washy.


Charlie Brown's All Stars! (1966) (TV)
Linus: [to the girls about Charlie Brown's decision, which they were complaining about] Well, if you must know, Charlie Brown was only thinking about your feelings.
Lucy van Pelt, Patty, Frieda, Violet, Schroeder: What do you mean our feelings?
Linus: Well, the only reason Charlie Brown turned Mr. Hennessey down was because he'd have to get rid of Snoopy and you girls. Mr. Hennessey said that the league wouldn't accept girls and dogs on a team.
[Upon hearing this the girls all look at each other in shock, and Snoopy breaks down crying]

Frieda: Don't you want to see Charlie Brown get a hit?
Schroeder: No. I don't think I'm ready to see the world come to an end.

Linus: [outraged by a note handed out by Snoopy] Look at this, Charlie Brown!
Charlie Brown: [reading it] "To Linus Van Pelt: I expect my croquet set and chess set returned forthwith, in good order, and within five days, or the matter will be turned over to my attorney."
Schroeder: [outraged over his own note from Snoopy] And mine says... he wants the record collection back!
Charlie Brown: [reading his own letter] And mine says... that since he gave me nothing, I owe him nothing!
[glares at Snoopy]
Lucy: That does it, Charlie Brown! He's your dog, and you're welcome to him!
[everyone walks out on Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and Woodstock; Charlie, annoyed at Snoopy, follows suit]


Play It Again, Charlie Brown (1971) (TV)
Schroeder: [Schroeder is playing a song while the dual-staff music notes are shown on the screen as he plays them; somewhere in the middle of him playing, Lucy's face appears between the staffs, yet he does not take notice for a little bit; when he does, he stops playing] Don't tell me I've grown accustomed to *that* face.

[last lines, Schroeder continues playing more Beethoven songs]
Lucy van Pelt: [sits by the piano] How come you never send me flowers?
Schroeder: Because I don't like you.
Lucy van Pelt: The flowers wouldn't care. Beethoven never would've made it in Nashville.
Schroeder: [stops playing, offended] What did you say? What do you mean Beethoven wouldn't have made it in Nashville?
Lucy van Pelt: Did he have the Nashville sound? Huh? Did he? Did he?
[Schroeder leaves, feeling insulted]
Lucy van Pelt: [shouts] He probably wouldn't have made it in New Orleans, *either*!

Lucy Van Pelt: What has Beethoven got to do with Christmas? Everyone talks about how "great" Beethoven was. Beethoven wasn't so great.
[Schroeder stops playing]
Schroeder: What do you mean Beethoven wasn't so great?
Lucy Van Pelt: He never got his picture on bubblegum cards, did he? Have you ever seen his picture on a bubblegum card? Hmmm? How can you say someone is great who's never had his picture on bubblegum cards?
