Susan Walker: “But when he spoke Dutch to that girl…”
Doris Walker: “Susan, I speak French, but that doesn’t make me Joan of Arc.”
Doris: “Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to. Don’t you see? It’s not just Kris that’s on trial, it’s everything he stands for. It’s kindness and joy and love and all the other intangibles.”
Susan Walker: “You mean it’s like, ‘If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.’”
Doris Walker: “Yes.”
Susan Walker: “I thought so.”
Fred: “That baseball player sure looks like a giant to me.”
Susan: “Sometimes people grow very large, but that’s abnormal.”
Fred: “I’ll bet your mother told you that, too.”
Kris Kringle: “Now wait a minute, Susie. Just because every child can’t get his wish that doesn’t mean there isn’t a Santa Claus.”
Kris Kringle: “If that’s normal, I don’t want it!”
Kris Kringle: “You know what the imagination is?”
Susan Walker: “Oh, sure. That’s when you see things, but they’re not really there.”
Kris Kringle: “Well, that can be caused by other things, too.”
Doris Walker: “I was wrong when I told you that, Susie. You must believe in Mr. Kringle and keep right on doing it. You must have faith in him.”
A Charlie Brown Christmas
Schroeder: This is the music I’ve selected for the Christmas play. [Schroeder plays Fur Elise]
Lucy Van Pelt: What kind of Christmas music is ‘that’?
Schroeder: Beethoven Christmas music.
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 bubble gum cards, did he? Have you ever seen his picture on a bubble gum card? Hmmm? How can you say someone is great who’s never had his picture on bubble gum cards?
Schroeder: Good grief.
