It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown (1992) (TV)
Marcie: Behold, I am the handmaiden of the Lord.
Peppermint Patty: [while Marcie is speaking] Baa! Baa! Baa! Baa!
Franklin: I am Gabriel, Mary, and I couldn't hear you because of the sheep.

Marcie: And there were shepherds in the field watching their flocks by night.
Peppermint Patty: Woof! Meow! Moo! Whatever.
[everyone in the audience laughs]
Peppermint Patty: And a partridge in a pear tree.

Peppermint Patty: [on the phone, to Marcie] Marcie, what book were we supposed to read during Thanksgiving vacation?
Marcie: This is Christmas vacation, sir.
Peppermint Patty: Christmas vacation? How can I read something during Christmas vacation, when I didn't read what I was supposed to read during Thanksgiving vacation?
Marcie: Duck, sir. Easter is coming.

Marcie: [Marcie and Peppermint Patty are walking to their school Christmas play] Watch out for the curb here, sir.
Peppermint Patty: What?
[she trips on the curb, in her sheep costume]
Marcie: Slouching towards Bethlehem, huh, sir?
Peppermint Patty: I can't stand it!

Peppermint Patty: Guess what, Chuck. Disaster time. Our teacher wants us to read a book during Christmas vacation. Got any suggestions?
Charlie Brown: On what book to read?
Peppermint Patty: No! On how to get out of it!

Peppermint Patty: I'm not going to have to read a book, Marcie. See? "A Tale of Two Cities" was just on TV. I watched the movie, so now I won't have to read the book. The only thing I didn't understand were the parts about the shampoo, the soap, and the coffee.
Marcie: Those were the commercials, sir.

Marcie: Why aren't you reading your book, sir?
Peppermint Patty: It's too nice a day to stay inside and read, Marcie. Besides, I have to build this snowman. If I don't do it, no one else will, and he won't exist. I am his creator, and it is my duty to give him life! This snowman has a right to live, Marcie!
Marcie: You're weird, sir.

Peppermint Patty: I'm going to ask the teacher if I could be Mary in the Christmas play this year.
Marcie: She's already asked me, sir.
Peppermint Patty: I think I'll be great in the part.
Marcie: She asked me yesterday.
Peppermint Patty: I like the part where the angel of Gabriel talks to me.
Marcie: Why would the angel of Gabriel talk to you? He'd never listen.
Peppermint Patty: I could probably wear these same sandles.
Peppermint Patty: [raises her hand]
[Teacher mumbles]
Peppermint Patty: Yes, ma'am, I'd like to volunteer to play the part of Mary in our Chrismtas play.
[Teacher mumbles]
Peppermint Patty: YOU WHAT?
Marcie: [Teacher mumbles] That's right, sir. She asked me yesterday.
Peppermint Patty: Mary never wore glasses!

Peppermint Patty: Hey, Chuck, did Mary ever wear glasses?
[pause]
Peppermint Patty: What do you mean "Mary Who"? In the Bible! Does it say anything about Mary wearing glasses?
[pause]
Peppermint Patty: Then how come Marcie played Mary instead of me? And the teacher says I have to play a sheep!
Charlie Brown: Why can't I ever be a wrong number?

Marcie: I was up late last night memorizing all of my lines.
Peppermint Patty: All your lines?... I can't remember my lines, Marcie!
Marcie: You're a sheep, sir. All you have to say is "Baa".
Peppermint Patty: My mind is going blank! I'm doomed! I wonder if this ever happened to Laurence Olivier?

Peppermint Patty: I can't remember my lines, Marcie!
Marcie: All you have to say is "Baa".
Peppermint Patty: My mind is going blank! I'll never remember! Why do they have to spoil Christmas by making us be in plays?
Marcie: We're on, Sir. Let's show them how!

Peppermint Patty: I'd like to read this book, Marcie. But I'm kinda afraid. I had a grandfather who didn't think much of reading. He always said, "If you read too many books, your head would fall off!"
Marcie: You start the first chapter, Sir. I'll hold onto your head.

Peppermint Patty: What was Handel's first name, Marcie?
Marcie: I'm ashamed to admit, I don't know.
Peppermint Patty: I'll just have to guess.


A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (1973) (TV)
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: You're holding my hand, Chuck, you sly dog.

Marcie: He's all yours, Priscilla.
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: Priscilla?
Charlie Brown: Priscilla?

Linus van Pelt: In the year 1621, the Pilgrims held their first Thanksgiving feast. They invited the great Indian chief Massasoit, who brought ninety of his brave Indians and a great abundance of food. Governor William Bradford and Captain Miles Standish were honored guests. Elder William Brewster, who was a minister, said a prayer that went something like this: 'We thank God for our homes and our food and our safety in a new land. We thank God for the opportunity to create a new world for freedom and justice."
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: Amen.

Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: What kind of Thanksgiving dinner is this? Where's the turkey, Chuck? Don't you know anything about Thanksgiving dinners? Where's the mashed potatoes? Where's the cranberry sauce? Where's the pumpkin pie?

Linus van Pelt: This is not unlike another famous Thanksgiving episode. Do you remember the story of John Alden, and Priscilla Mullins, and Captain Miles Standish?
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: This isn't like that one at all.

Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: [appalled by Snoopy's Thanksgiving dinner] What's this? A piece of toast? A pretzel stick? Popcorn? What blockhead cooked all this?

Marcie: You were kind of rough on Charlie Brown, weren't you, sir?
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: Rough? Look at this! Is this what you call a Thanksgiving day dinner? Did we come across town for this? We're supposed to be served a real Thanksgiving dinner!
Marcie: Now wait a minute, sir. Did he invite you here to dinner, or did you invite yourself, and us, too?
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: Gee, I never thought of it like that. You think I hurt ole Chuck's feelings? I bet I hurt his feelings, huh? Golly, why can't I act right outside of a baseball game?
[short pause]
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: Marcie, maybe you could go to ole Chuck and patch things up for me. Maybe you can tell him how I really feel. Tell him I didn't mean it the way it sounded. Marcie, you can do it. You go and see him and tell him I really like it and I think the dinner's okay with me.
Marcie: Well, I don't know, but I'll try. I think maybe you should go to Chuck and tell him yourself.
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: No, Marcie, I'll just ruin everything. You know I'm too brusque and rough. You go and speak for me.
Marcie: Well, okay.

Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: [as Snoopy places the fake Thanksgiving dinner on the table] Are we going to have a prayer? It's Thanksgiving, you know.
[to Charlie Brown]
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: Before we're served, shouldn't we say grace?

Marcie: What are we going to wear to this big Thanksgiving party, sir? What time do we go?
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: Well kid, I'm gonna go like this. Ole Chuck is pretty cool about dates. He always wears that striped shirt of his.
Franklin: I just talked to Charlie Brown. He said dinner would be served a little earlier.
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: Great, we're ready.
Franklin: You think I should wear a tie?
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: No, you can go as you are, Franklin. I don't think Chuck'll mind. Besides, he didn't say it was formal.

Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: [entering the living room with Marcie] Apologies accepted, Chuck ole boy?
Charlie Brown: Sure.
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: There's enough problems in the world already, Chuck, without these stupid misunderstandings. Let's not play lovers' games, Chuck.
Charlie Brown: [as he and Peppermint Patty shake hands] I agree.

Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: [approaching the other guests after Charlie Brown's phone call to his grandmother] We're all invited to Charlie Brown's grandmother's for Thanksgiving dinner.
[the others cheer]


Happy New Year, Charlie Brown (1986) (TV)
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Have you made any New Year's resolutions, Chuck?
Charlie Brown: Yes. You know how I always dread the whole year? Well, this time I'm only going to dread one day at a time.

Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: It's been a great year, Chuck. You'll have to admit that. What you do think, Chuck, would be good rules for living in the new year?
Charlie Brown: Keep the ball low, don't leave your crayons in the sun, use dental floss every day, don't spill the shoe polish, always knock before entering, don't let the ants get in the sugar, never volunteer to be a program chairman, always get your first serve in, and feed your dog whenever he's hungry.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Will those rules give me a better life, Chuck?
Charlie Brown: The better life, and a fat dog.

Marcie: It's too bad Charles couldn't come to the party, sir.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: I couldn't care less, Marcie.
Marcie: It's too bad he had to write that report.

Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [trying to warn Charlie Brown about the new year coming when he's fallen asleep reading "War and Peace"] Chuck? Where are you? It's just a few seconds before midnight! Chuck, Chuck!

Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Chuck, how could you do this to me? When midnight came along, I was the only one standing all alone!
Charlie Brown: [stammering] I uh, I...
Sally Brown: Big brother, my sweet babboo didn't dance with me at midnight! And do you know why?
Charlie Brown: [continuing to stammer] Well, uh, I uh...
Sally Brown: 'Cause he danced with *your* friend, the Little Red-Haired Girl!
Charlie Brown: [bewildered] He did what?

Charlie Brown: [entering the New Year's Eve party with "War and Peace"] Hi. Could I come in?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [approaching him] I thought you had to study.
Charlie Brown: Well, I thought I could read some of it here.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Come on, Chuck. Admit it, you sly dog.
[closing the door]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: You wanted to start the new year with me.
Charlie Brown: Well... I was kind of hoping the Little Red-Haired Girl would show up.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Chuck, you drive me crazy!
Marcie: C'mon, sir, everybody is ready for musical chairs.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Okay, okay, let's get started.
Charlie Brown: Can I play?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Oh, I guess so, Chuck. Come on.

Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Hey Chuck, that was a sly move on your part. You know, to get us out here alone on New Year's Eve.
Charlie Brown: Huh?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Yep. We might even end up ushering in the new year together. I'll bet you'd like that, Eh, Chuck?
Charlie Brown: Hm...

Charlie Brown: [picking up the phone] Hello?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Hiya, Chuck, this is Peppermint Patty. Have you thought any more about who you're inviting to the party, Chuck?
Charlie Brown: No, I haven't thought about that. I'm reading "War and Peace".
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Aha, I knew it would be me!
Charlie Brown: Well, as a matter of fact, I'm only on page five of my book.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Come on Chuck, remember: you have to invite *somebody*.
Charlie Brown: Well, I suppose you're right.
[lighting up]
Charlie Brown: I wonder if that Little Red-Haired Girl would go with me?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: What?
Charlie Brown: Do you think she would?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: So long forever, Chuck!
[hangs up angrily]


Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown (1977)
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [as she and the rest of the Peanuts gang pass the bullies, who are stranded on rocks] Now *we're* number one, you bullies!

Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [to Charlie Brown, about his registration form] Hey Chuck. Give us a hint. What did you write?
Charlie Brown: Well, I'm not quite sure. It's kind of personal, you know.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [Chucks "Chuck" playfully in the arm] Oh, come on, Chuck. We're close friends, you know.
Charlie Brown: [Thinks for a second] Well, okay.
[Reads from his paper]
Charlie Brown: I decided to come to camp, because I've never been much of a person. I thought maybe coming to camp would help me grow up, and maybe make me into a leader. I could use leadership qualities.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: You could say that again, Chuck. You couldn't lead a dog on a leash.

Linus Van Pelt: Are we dead?
Lucy Van Pelt: Thanks to old Charlie Brown.
Sally Brown: I'm not dead.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Of course you're not dead!
Lucy Van Pelt: No thanks to old Charlie Brown!
Charlie Brown: All right, all right, let's go to the river!

Marcie: [Peppermint Patty and Snoopy are stuck bouncing on Patty's waterbed] Sir, you're making too much noise. Can't you just kiss him goodnight and let it go at that?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: If I ever get off this waterbed I'll kick him, not kiss him!

Camp Announcer: Attention, attention! Turn out for PT! Turn out for PT! Attention, attention! Turn out for PT!
Marcie: PT? What in the world is that?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: PT means physical training, you know, exercise, come on, let's go.

[the kids take a wrong turn to a channel and see a sign: "Danger, Blasting on Tuesdays and Thursdays"]
Charlie Brown: That's funny. Did you see that sign?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Hey, Chuck, did you see that sign? What day is this?
Charlie Brown: That's right, today is Tuesday!
[the kids pass by a group of bulldozers and tractors and see another sign: "Danger, Blasting on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10 am"]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Chuck, did you see that sign? What time is it, Chuck?
Charlie Brown: [checks his watch] It's almost...
[a huge explosion occurs and a bunch of rocks fall on the screaming kids as the channel goes wavy separating the kids from Snoopy and Woodstock]
Charlie Brown: ...10 AM!
[the rocks stop falling and the channel goes calm again]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [angrily points at Charlie Brown] Okay, Chuck! *Another* fine mess you've gotten us into! Look at that! The channel is all blocked!
Lucy Van Pelt: Yeah, just like his head!
[Charlie Brown nervously blushes]

Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Okay gang, I suggest we run this tent in a democratic fashion. The first thing we'll do is elect a tent leader. We'll have to prepare some ballots, and we'll do this democratically. We'll vote to see who's leader - one gal, one vote. However, we can't pass the ballots until we voted to see who's gonna pass the ballots. This will be done very democratically. Let's see... I vote that Lucy prepares the ballots.
Lucy Van Pelt: Wait a minute! You can't vote unless we have ballots!
Marcie: If we can't vote to see who will pass the ballots, how can we have ballots to vote?
Sally Brown: Yeah, who cares?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: All in favor say "aye". Aye!
Marcie: Aye!
Lucy Van Pelt: No!
Sally Brown: No!
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: It's settled, Lucy will pass the ballots. Okay Lucy, pass the ballots. Everybody mark their choice, either vote for me or against me. That'll be fair.
Lucy Van Pelt: Wait one darned second! How about if we nominate somebody first?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Good idea! I nominate me! Any further nominations? If not, the nominations are declared closed. Okay gals, let's vote.
[the girls vote]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Marcie, pick up the votes and tally 'em.
Marcie: Alright, here's the way it went: one vote for Lucy, one vote for Peppermint Patty, one vote for Sally, and one vote for Marcie.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Huh, a tie vote. I guess I'll have to decide the casting vote.
Lucy Van Pelt: Huh?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: The deciding vote is for Peppermint Patty! Peppermint Patty is the leader! I am the leader! It was fair and square!
Lucy Van Pelt: Boy, some vote!


It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown! (1974) (TV)
Peppermint Patty: Marcie, you made egg soup!

Marcie: What do we do with the Easter eggs now that we have them, sir?
Peppermint Patty: We eat them. We put a little salt on them, and we eat them.
Marcie: [eats her egg, still with the shell on, and gulps it down] Tastes terrible, sir!

Marcie: [frying the first batch of eggs] Uh, sir, how do we color the eggs after we've fried them?
Peppermint Patty: Agh, agh, agh... Aaaugh!

[first lines]
Marcie: I got the eggs, sir, just like you asked.
Peppermint Patty: Great. Come on in, Marcie.
[Marcie enters]
Peppermint Patty: But *please* quit calling me 'sir'.

Peppermint Patty: Now look, kid: these eggs are *not* to be fried. Nor are they to be roasted, toasted, or waffled.
Marcie: Yes, sir.
Peppermint Patty: These eggs have to be boiled. You boil them, then I'll show you how to paint them.
Marcie: Yes, sir. I'll boil them, sir, then you'll paint them.

Peppermint Patty: Boy, that kid really can dance. And he sure knows how to make a girl happy. He sure is a funny looking kid, though.
Marcie: He has a very strange nose, doesn't he, sir?


It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown (1984) (TV)
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Gym is my favorite class. I'm so dumb I wish all classes were gym. I sure look forward to gym.

Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Marcie, what answer did you put down for question 4?
Marcie: 6 x 12 is 72.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: 72? I put down green!
Marcie: *Green*? Why did you put down green?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: I thought it was a trick question.

Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: You know something, Chuck, I may not be as pretty as that little redhead girl, and I may not have naturally curly hair like Frieda, and I may not be as smart as Lucy, but I've got one thing none of them has, I'm in shape!

Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [singing] I run 5 miles every morning, I do 100 pushups every day. I pedal every night, take a swim, take a hike, I'm in shape, I'm in shape, I'm in shape.

Marcie: You missed it, sir. We've been studying the human head.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Somehow I feel like I should get you for something, Marcie, but I don't know what.

Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Marcie, you haven't drawn a thing!
Marcie: Some of us are just patrons of the arts, sir.

Marcie: Class hasn't started yet, sir

Peppermint Patty: Chuck, are you trying to trying to hold my hand, you sly dog?

Peppermint Patty: [referring to Joe Cool] Whoa! Check out the moves on that funny-looking kid with a big nose!

[nicely]

Peppermint Patty: Hi Marcie. I just thought I'd call to see how you and Chuck are doing.
Marcie: Oh, Charles, I can't talk with you nibbling my ear like that.
Peppermint Patty: AGGH!

Charlie Brown: [answers phone] Hello?
Peppermint Patty: Summer school, Chuck! I have to go to summer school! Can you believe it?
Marcie: Ask Charles if he's going to summer camp with us.
Peppermint Patty: Marcie asks if you're going to camp with everyone else while I'm at summer school.
Charlie Brown: I'm sorry, all the lines in this half of the country have gone dead.
Peppermint Patty: Don't you hang up on me, Chuck!

Peppermint Patty: This camp chow is good. Aren't you gonna eat, Marcie?

Peppermint Patty: He upset you so much, you can't eat?
Marcie: No, I hit him with my lunch.

[last lines]
Peppermint Patty: Tell the truth. When you and Chuck were at camp, Marcie, did you do a lot of things together?
Marcie: Well, there was the moonlight walk.
Peppermint Patty: Moonlight walk? Aauugh!
Marcie: Well, it wasn't much of a walk. We just got started when Charles walked into a tree.


A Charlie Brown Celebration (1982) (TV)
Marcie: Babe Ruth had a cap. Willie Mays had a cap. Ted Williams had a cap. Maury Wills had a cap. Willie McCovey had a cap. Mickey Mantle had cap.
Peppermint Patty: Marcie will you shut up!
Marcie: Even Joe Garagiola had a cap.

Marcie: Shouldn't the rest of our players be going with us, Sir?
Peppermint Patty: They'd get lost, Marcie. I have to do this all by myself. I'm going in and out of that gate until I get nine baseball caps.
Marcie: I bet they'll let you play on the prison ballteam, Sir.

Peppermint Patty: [On the phone with Charlie Brown discussing whether or not to transfer to a private school] A private school might do me some good, Chuck. I might even become one of the beautiful people. Wouldn't that be something?
Charlie Brown: [Cut to his house] I can see you now in a white blouse and a blue skirt running out to play field hockey.
Peppermint Patty: [Cut back to her house] Don't hassle me with your sarcasm, Chuck!

Peppermint Patty: [worried about Charlie Brown in the hospital] Poor Chuck, I hate to think of him lying up there in that hospital room.
Marcie: You like Chuck, don't you, sir?
Peppermint Patty: [stammers nervously] Well, I-you know-I feel sort of-you know, he-I-he...
Marcie: I love Chuck. I think he's real neat.
Peppermint Patty: Real neat? You think he is real neat?
Marcie: I sure do. Someday I hope he'll ask me to the prom. In fact, I'd even marry Chuck.
Peppermint Patty: Come with me, Marcie.
[They go in the hospital emergency]
Peppermint Patty: Is this the emergency entrance, ma'am? We're friends of Charles Brown. I have another patient for you.

Snoopy Come Home (1972)
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [to an unhappy Charlie Brown] Listen, you can't let yourself get into a mood like this. I know you miss Snoopy. I miss him, too. But if you let yourself get into a mood, no one will want to be around you. No one likes a moody person, Chuck. Take it from me: I learned a long time ago that if you go around in a mood feeling sorry for yourself, you do it alone. And I mean *alone*, Chuck.

Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Does your kind ever think about love, Chuck?
Charlie Brown: What do you mean, *my* kind?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: I'm sorry, I didn't mean to put it that way. No offense. I apologize.
[She holds out her hand]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Friends?
[They shake hands]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [swooningly] You touched my hand, Chuck.

Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: What do you think love is, Chuck?
Charlie Brown: Well, years ago, my dad owned a black 1934 two-door sedan.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: What's that got to do with love?
Charlie Brown: Well, this is what he told me: there was this really cute girl, see? She used to go for rides with him in his car. And whenever he'd call for her, he would always hold open the car door for her. After she got in and he had closed the door, he'd walk around the back of the car to the driver's side, but before he could get there, she would reach over and press the button, locking him out. Then she'd just sit there and wrinkle her nose and grin at him. That's what I think love is.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [perplexed] Sometimes I wonder about you, Chuck.

[Peppermint Patty and Snoopy are at the beach, basking in the sun]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: It's nice to lie in the sun and just do nothing. Of course, it's better if you're with someone you like. You kinda like me, don't you, Snoopy?
[They then get up]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Why don't we meet here again tomorrow? If you come, I'll bring a picnic lunch. We'll have sandwiches and cookies and lemonade and potato chips and everything, okay?
[Snoopy nods]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: And we'll build another sand castle. Only this time, we'll build an even bigger one. We'll have a great time. Will you come?
[Snoopy nods]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Good. I'll see you tomorrow.


Snoopy: The Musical (1988) (TV)
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: Do you think you'll ever get married, Chuck?
Charlie Brown: Oh, I suppose so. Just about everyone does.
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: [holding Charlie Brown's hand] Well, what kind of girl do you think you'll marry?
Charlie Brown: Well, I always kind of hate to talk about it, because I'm afraid, it-it might sound silly. But I like the kind of girl who would call me 'poor, sweet baby'.
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: 'Poor, sweet baby'?
Charlie Brown: Uh-huh. If I was feeling tired, or depressed, or something, she'd cuddle up close to me, kiss me on the ear, and whisper: "Poor, sweet baby".

Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: What? Yes, ma'am? The answer's 5. 8? 83? How would it be if I spell 'Mississippi'?

Lucy van Pelt, Linus van Pelt, Sally Brown, Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt, Snoopy: Well, what do you see, Charlie Brown?
Charlie Brown: I was going to say a horsie and a duckie, but I changed my mind.


Snoopy's Getting Married, Charlie Brown (1985) (TV)
[Snoopy was supposed to be a watchdog and guard Peppermint Patty's house, but while doing so, he gets scared off. Outraged, Peppermint Patty phones Charlie Brown]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [dialing] Some watchdog. He hears one sound, and he runs off into the night.
[phone answers]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Hello, Chuck!
Charlie Brown: [sleepy] Who is this?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: This is Peppermint Patty. Now, where's my watchdog, Chuck? Snoopy is supposed to be guarding my house, and he just ran off! Where is he, Chuck? Where is he?
[She does not get a response]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Chuck? *Chuck*?
[still no response; Charlie Brown is sound asleep]
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Chuck, wake UP!
Charlie Brown: [startled awake] Huh - what? Oh, sorry.
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Chuck, you better get over here right away. Snoopy was your responsibility. If he's ran out on me, you're gonna have to take his place. *YOU'RE* GONNA BE THE WATCHDOG, CHUCK! DO YOU HEAR ME?
Charlie Brown: Woof.

[last lines]
Lucy van Pelt: Charlie Brown, I've got some good news for you, and I've got some bad news. The good news is that we've prepared a great party.

There's No Time for Love, Charlie Brown (1973) (TV)
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: Well, I don't know what I can do for Charlie Brown, but I sure know what you can do for me.
Marcie: What's that?
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: [blows her away from her yells] Stop calling me 'sir'!

[last lines, after Charlie Brown got his first 'A' on his report]
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: Chuck, I want to apologize for saying that you're stupid and wishy-washy and everything. It's not easy for a girl to talk like this to a boy, you know.
Charlie Brown: I know. But I always used to think how nice it would be if that little red-haired girl would just come up to me and...
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: [blows him away with her yells] I can't stand you, Chuck!
Marcie: [comes by] Well, sir, you said the wrong thing again, didn't you?
Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: Kid, I want to ask you something: how come you're always calling me 'sir' when I keep asking you not to? Don't you realize how annoying that can be?
Marcie: No, ma'am.
[Peppermint Patty winces from the word]

Patricia 'Peppermint Patty' Reichardt: I'm very discouraged, Chuck. We just had a 'true and false' test and it followed an essay test. We still have three months of school. There'll be more study, more tests, and more agony. How can one fall in love when all these stupid things are going on? Tests to do, reports to write - all these dumb things to do. There's no time for love, Chuck.

"This Is America, Charlie Brown: The Birth of the Constitution (#1.2)" (1988)
Peppermint Patty: [voiceover; first lines] Eleven years after the Declaration of Independence, thirteen American colonies had become the United States, but they were united in name only. Actually, they were thirteen independent republics bickering among themselves over everything from taxes, to borders, to water rights. A meeting had been called in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to try to solve these problems. Twelve of the thirteen states sent representatives. Eventually, fifty-five delegates would participate, but by the start of the meeting, only half of the delegates had arrived. They came by water, by stagecoach, and on horseback.

Peppermint Patty: [voiceover] Dear Grandmother, I'm sorry I haven't written you, but I've been very busy working at the convention. I am worried about our country, Grandmother. My friend Linus says that if these men don't agree fairly soon, this convention and then maybe even the whole country will collapse. It's been very, very hot here, and twelve of the delegates have already gone home. Those who are left are debating about things like slavery, and the Bill of Rights, and a bunch of other things, too. Linus says if they don't agree on a strong constitution, we might have civil wars between the states. Please keep your fingers crossed, Grandmother. So will I. Love, Peppermint Patty.
