Snoopy Come Home (1972)
Charlie Brown: I'm depressed, Linus. I need an encouraging word to cheer me up.
Linus: Happiness lies in our destiny like a cloudless sky before the storms of tomorrow destroy the dreams of yesterday and last week.
Charlie Brown: I think that blanket is doing something to you.
Lucy: [the kids are playing Monopoly, and it's Lucy's turn] Oh, no! Not on Pacific! With hotels?
Schroeder: Pay me twelve hundred and seventy-five dollars, please.
Lucy: Schroeder, Schroeder, how about a beep on the nose?
Schroeder: A what?
Lucy: [poking him on the nose] BEEP. A beep on the nose is a sign of great affection.
Schroeder: I'd rather have the twelve hundred and seventy-five dollars, please. PAY UP!
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.
[Charlie Brown picks up a rock from the beach, and throws it into the water]
Linus: Nice going, Charlie Brown. It took that rock 4,000 years to get to shore, and now you've thrown it back.
Charlie Brown: Everything I do makes me feel guilty.
Charlie Brown: If I don't find out what happened to Snoop, I think I'll go out of my mind!
Linus: If you'll calm down for a minute, Charlie Brown, I may able to conduct a little private investigation.
Charlie Brown: Just what I need, a blanket-carrying Sherlock Holmes!
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]
Charlie Brown: [about Snoopy, bitter] What an independent dog. He comes and goes as he pleases, but I have to stay home and fix his supper.
[Charlie Brown accidentally cuts his finger on a can opener while trying to open a can of dog food for Snoopy. Charlie Brown then takes it out to Snoopy's doghouse]
Charlie Brown: [to Snoopy, bitter] All right, it's supper time. Come and get your supper.
[Snoopy notices his chow, while Charlie Brown holds up a bandaged thumb, which he had accidentally cut]
Charlie Brown: Do you see this finger? I cut it opening a can of stupid dog food for your stupid supper. I hope you appreciate it. Besides that, it wasn't a finger; it was my THUMB!
[Charlie Brown then points down to order his dog off the roof of his dog house; Snoopy gets down]
Charlie Brown: You've been acting awfully independent lately.
[Snoopy ignores him]
Charlie Brown: Don't forget that I'm the one who feeds you. I'm the one who takes care of you.
[Snoopy still ignores him]
Charlie Brown: Look at me when I'm talking to you!
[Snoopy looks at him]
Charlie Brown: Without me, you'd be nothing! Everything you have, you have because of me. Even that collar around your neck. Why, I remember the day I went out and bought that collar with money I have worked for and have saved and...
[Snoopy removes his collar; Charlie Brown walks off in a huff]
Charlie Brown: I hate it when he does that.
Charlie Brown: You know what I need? I need more hellos.
Linus: [Linus found out the reason why Snoopy ran away] Are you ready for a shock?
[Charlie Brown faints]
Linus: He wasn't ready for a shock.
[Charlie Brown gets back up]
Linus: How can I tell you something that will shock you if you pass out before I can tell you?
Charlie Brown: I'm sorry; I've been hyperventilating a lot lately...
Linus: [Linus tells Charlie Brown what he found out about Snoopy's past] You're not Snoopy's orginal owner.
[Charlie Brown faints again]
Linus: [rolling his eyes] Oh, good grief!
[Charlie Brown gets back up]
Linus: You bought Snoopy in the month of October, right? According to the records at the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm, Snoopy was bought by another family in August. This family had a little girl named Lila. Snoopy and Lila loved each other very much, but then they moved, and the family decided they just couldn't keep Snoopy so they returned him.
Linus: You got a used dog, Charlie Brown.
[Charlie Brown looks shocked... and faints again]
[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?
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?
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Good. I'll see you tomorrow.
