I mentioned in the Favorite Lines From Comic Strips thread that my friend and I used to try to stump each other with Peanuts quotes. Now that I think about it, I think I came up with one punchline that he wasn’t familiar with, but he never got me. So I’m going to post a few of them. Anyone interested can try to describe the strip it’s quoted from.
Example: “Please do not harm my mother and father.”
—From a sequence wherein Charlie Brown loses a library book and thinks he’ll be going up the river. He writes a note to the library offering to turn himself in, and ends with that request.
“Oh, well, they’ll find out someday by themselves!”
“If it’s such a nice day, why spoil it for the rabbits?”
“I thought it would be impolite not to taste it!”
“One rarely gets a chance to see such carefully prepared sarcasm!”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about…I’m too young and innocent!”
“GO, SILVER FLAKES!”
“My brother IS the court house!”
“Oh, well, if you’re going to go around watching every word you say all the time, you’ll never get much said!”
“I’ll just have to tell her I don’t know any real dogs…”
I’ll stop now. And please accept my apologies if this topic is just too obscure, or too M and P.
Remember, I’m pulling for you; we’re all in this together.
