Patty: You’re a waste, Charlie Brown.
Frieda: You are useless.
Lucy: You’ve messed up before, but you’ve really messed up this time.”
Lucy Van Pelt: You DO think I’m beautiful, don’t you, Charlie Brown?

Charlie Brown: Good grief.
“Sally: Where have you been? I have been looking all over for you. Can you do me a favor? Can you write a letter to Santa Claus?

Lucy: What kind of music is this?
Schroeder: It’s classical music.

Frieda: You are so disgusting. Have you ever looked at yourself?

Linus: I will turn it into a sports jacket.”
“Charlie: It looks like I shouldn’t have picked this tree after all. No matter what I do it ends in failure. I guess I know nothing about Christmas. Can anyone tell me what Christmas means?
Linus: I can tell you what Christmas means. Can someone turn on the lights? Shepherds were keeping watch over their flock at night. An angel showed up and the Lord’s light shined around them. They were scared, but the angel told them not to be afraid. The angel told the shepherds that he brought them joy that’s for everyone.”
Narrator: As the gang gathered around the tree, they began to sing. Charlie Brown heard them and came running back.
“Lucy: You need to get rid of the blanket and make sure you know your lines.
Linus: I’m not going to be able to memorize all of this. This is crazy.
Lucy: You better know your lines and be able to say them when you’re supposed to say them.
Linus: I told you I can’t learn these lines that fast. I shouldn’t have to go through this pain. Why should I have to memorize this?
Lucy: I will tell you five reasons why you need to remember it.
Linus: You gave me some good reasons. Christmas is getting dangerous.
Lucy: I told you to lose the blanket. How are you going to look being a Christmas shepherd holding a blanket?
Linus: Well this shepherd will be keeping his blanket. You wouldn’t be willing to hurt a shepherd would you?”
“Lucy: I understand how you feel about Christmas. I could see why you get depressed. I feel that way all of the time. I never get the things I want for Christmas. I get the same things every year.
Charlie: What do you want for Christmas?
Lucy: I want the real estate for Christmas.”
Charlie Brown: I think there must be something wrong with me, Linus. Christmas is coming, but I’m not happy. I don’t feel the way I’m supposed to feel.
Linus Van Pelt: I never thought it was such a bad little tree. It’s not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love.
Lucy Van Pelt: I know how you feel about all this Christmas business, getting depressed and all that. It happens to me every year. I never get what I really want. I always get a lot of stupid toys or a bicycle or clothes or anything like that.
Charlie Brown: What is it you want?
Lucy Van Pelt: Real estate.
Charlie Brown: Thanks for the Christmas card, Violet.
Violet: I didn’t send you a Christmas card, Charlie Brown.
Charlie Brown: Don’t you know sarcasm when you hear it?
: Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?
: Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about.

[Linus drops his security blanket on purpose]
: “for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.’ And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.'”
