You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown (1972 TV Short)
Lucy van Pelt: I've just compiled the results of my poll. You'll never get elected, Charlie Brown. You have no way of winning. No way.
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?
Sally Brown: Well, I hope you told him.
Linus van Pelt: Well, not really. As a matter of fact, he told me.
Sally Brown: He sold out! We elected him, and he sold out! They're all the same! Promises, promises! You elect them, and they weasel out of their promises!
Linus van Pelt: If I'm elected, my first act as president will be to appear before the School Board.
[Lucy whispers in his ear]
Linus van Pelt: I'm sorry. I will not be able to appear before the School Board. They meet at 8:00, and I go to bed at 7:30.
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.
Lucy van Pelt: If you knew that Linus Van Pelt was running for president, would you vote for him?
Lucy van Pelt: If you knew that he was going to straighten out the whole educational system, would you vote for him?
Lucy van Pelt: If you knew that he was going to solve all of the problems of the whole world, would you vote for him?
Lucy van Pelt: Well, why not?
Russell: 'Cause I'm the one who'd be running against him.
Linus van Pelt: In my administration, children will be children, and adults will be adults!
