One of the best parts of spending cozy holidays at home is putting on those film specials you watch every single year. Well, it’s time to break out the popcorn, toast, and pretzel sticks! But before you put on A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving this time around, jog your memory with the top six quotable lines – so you can beat everyone else to the punch.
“We’ve got another holiday to worry about. It seems Thanksgiving Day is upon us.”
Sweet Charlie Brown opens the show with his characteristically charming pessimism, treating a national holiday based on gratitude more like a doomsday event.
“What did you expect, a turkey card?”
Sally always keeps it real, and here she brings big brother Charlie down another peg after he finds his mailbox sadly empty.
“Maybe I should do it. Besides, she wouldn’t try to trick me on a traditional holiday.”
Especially if you live in a pranking household, Charlie Brown’s gullible nature and Lucy’s cutthroat tactics can serve as a spark of inspiration. When Charlie convinces himself to try kicking Lucy’s football with this line, the expected embarrassment ensues.
“No, ma’am, they haven’t eaten. As a matter of fact, they’ve let me know that in no uncertain terms.”
Dealing with hungry and demanding kiddos? Uncles? Pups? Pull out this dry, hilarious, and universally applicable line from Charlie’s phone conversation with his grandmother.
"We should just be thankful for being together. I think that's what they mean by 'Thanksgiving,' Charlie Brown."
Marcie brings it all home by reminding us that Thanksgiving is about more than just food. It’s a great lesson to keep in mind when someone takes that last slice of pie.
“Well, there’s only one thing wrong with that... My grandmother lives in a condominium.”
When the Peanuts gang wins an invitation to Charlie’s grandmother’s house, it’s all smiles, and they break out in a charming rendition of Over the River and Through the Wood. But Charlie isn’t afraid to ruin the vibe by being accurate about their destination!
