    [Reads from his paper]

    Charlie Brown: I decided to come to camp, because I've never been much of a person. I thought maybe coming to camp would help me grow up, and maybe make me into a leader. I could use leadership qualities.

  • [the kids take a wrong turn to a channel and see a sign: "Danger, Blasting on Tuesdays and Thursdays"]

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Hey, Chuck, did you see that sign? What day is this?

    Charlie Brown: That's right, today is Tuesday!

    Lucy Van Pelt: Yeah, just like his head!

    [Charlie Brown nervously blushes]

  • Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Okay gang, I suggest we run this tent in a democratic fashion. The first thing we'll do is elect a tent leader. We'll have to prepare some ballots, and we'll do this democratically. We'll vote to see who's leader - one gal, one vote. However, we can't pass the ballots until we voted to see who's gonna pass the ballots. This will be done very democratically. Let's see... I vote that Lucy prepares the ballots.

    Lucy Van Pelt: Wait a minute! You can't vote unless we have ballots!

    Marcie: If we can't vote to see who will pass the ballots, how can we have ballots to vote?

    Sally Brown: Yeah, who cares?

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: All in favor say "aye". Aye!

    Marcie: Aye!

    Lucy Van Pelt: No!

    Sally Brown: No!

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: It's settled, Lucy will pass the ballots. Okay Lucy, pass the ballots. Everybody mark their choice, either vote for me or against me. That'll be fair.

    Lucy Van Pelt: Wait one darned second! How about if we nominate somebody first?

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Good idea! I nominate me! Any further nominations? If not, the nominations are declared closed. Okay gals, let's vote.

    [the girls vote]

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Marcie, pick up the votes and tally 'em.

    Marcie: Alright, here's the way it went: one vote for Lucy, one vote for Peppermint Patty, one vote for Sally, and one vote for Marcie.

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Huh, a tie vote. I guess I'll have to decide the casting vote.

    Lucy Van Pelt: Huh?

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: The deciding vote is for Peppermint Patty! Peppermint Patty is the leader! I am the leader! It was fair and square!

    Lucy Van Pelt: Boy, some vote!

  • Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [to an unhappy Charlie Brown] Listen, you can't let yourself get into a mood like this. I know you miss Snoopy. I miss him, too. But if you let yourself get into a mood, no one will want to be around you. No one likes a moody person, Chuck. Take it from me: I learned a long time ago that if you go around in a mood feeling sorry for yourself, you do it alone. And I mean *alone*, Chuck.

  • Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: What do you think love is, Chuck?

    Charlie Brown: Well, years ago, my dad owned a black 1934 two-door sedan.

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: What's that got to do with love?

    Charlie Brown: Well, this is what he told me: there was this really cute girl, see? She used to go for rides with him in his car. And whenever he'd call for her, he would always hold open the car door for her. After she got in and he had closed the door, he'd walk around the back of the car to the driver's side, but before he could get there, she would reach over and press the button, locking him out. Then she'd just sit there and wrinkle her nose and grin at him. That's what I think love is.

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [perplexed] Sometimes I wonder about you, Chuck.

  • Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Does your kind ever think about love, Chuck?

    Charlie Brown: What do you mean, *my* kind?

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: I'm sorry, I didn't mean to put it that way. No offense. I apologize.

    [She holds out her hand]

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Friends?

    [They shake hands]

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: [swooningly] You touched my hand, Chuck.

  • [Peppermint Patty and Snoopy are at the beach, basking in the sun]

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: It's nice to lie in the sun and just do nothing. Of course, it's better if you're with someone you like. You kinda like me, don't you, Snoopy?

    [They then get up]

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Why don't we meet here again tomorrow? If you come, I'll bring a picnic lunch. We'll have sandwiches and cookies and lemonade and potato chips and everything, okay?

    [Snoopy nods]

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: And we'll build another sand castle. Only this time, we'll build an even bigger one. We'll have a great time. Will you come?

    [Snoopy nods]

    Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichardt: Good. I'll see you tomorrow.
