[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 takes out her radio and happily listens to rock music on Schroeder's piano]

Play It Again, Charlie Brown was one of the few "Peanuts" specials I didn't get to watch growing up, 1 January 2013
Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, La.

Lucy thinks she's found a way for Schroeder to like her when she gets him a gig at the PTA show at the school but Peppermint Patty tells her something that she knows Schroeder wouldn't be crazy about. I'll stop there and just say that this was another "Peanuts" special that I highly enjoyed watching a few years ago having been one of the few I didn't catch as a kid growing up in the 70s and 80s. It happened to be during a few months after director Bill Melendez died and when I originally submitted this, it was dedicated to him. He knew so well how to put Charles Schulz' vision in animated form with great help from Vince Guaraldi's music score. I won't mention any more except just seek out Play It Again, Charlie Brown on YouTube or anywhere if you're in the mood...
