Lucy:  “What are you doing, Charlie Brown?”
Charlie Brown:  “I’m waiting for Valentine’s.”
Lucy:  “Oh, well, good luck.”
Charlie Brown:  “Thank you.”
Lucy:  “You’ll need it!”
Charlie Brown:  “You didn’t have to say THAT!”

At the class’ Valentine’s Day party, when Schroeder was handing out the collected cards to the pupils;

Violet:  “Look at THAT.  Charlie Brown STILL hasn’t received a Valentine.  Did anyone send Charlie Brown a Valentine?”
Lucy:  “Who would waste a Valentine on stupid, ol’ Charlie Brown?”

Later, the girls are feeling guilty that no one gave Charlie Brown a Valentine, so they went to see him outside his home, where he was waiting at his mailbox, and where Violet handed him one she received then recycled to him:

Schroeder [referring to Charlie Brown, and angry at their mean behaviour and offer of a recycled card]:                              “Don’t you think he has any feelings?”
