What are you doing, Charlie Brown?

I'm waiting for valentines.

- Oh, well, good luck.

- Thank you.

You'll need it.

You didn't have to say that!



She said my name. Did you hear that?

Did you hear how she said my name?

Of course she said your name.

She was calling the roll.

But it's more than that.

I feel that Miss Othmar really likes me.

Don't be ridiculous.

To her, you're just another student.

On the contrary, I have the feeling

I'm somebody special.


Yes, ma'am?


You want me to pound the erasers?

Yes, Miss Othmar. I'd be glad to.


See? I told you.

Miss Othmar must like me.

It's a privilege to be selected

to pound erasers.

Some privilege.

This is a privilege and an honor.



I could die from all this honor.

I think I could spend my whole life here,

and still never get a valentine.

Valentine? That's it!

I'll get Miss Othmar

the biggest valentine there is!

That'll show her how I feel about her.



It says here that it is probable...

...that the valentine

was the first of all greeting cards.

The paper valentine dates

from the 16th century.

By 1800, hand-plated copper plates

were produced to meet the large demand.

Get it, Schroeder?

To make the large demand for valentine?

Originally, Valentine's Day was set aside

as a lovers' festival.

Oh, Schroeder, isn't that romantic?

A lovers' festival.

Sometimes I think you don't realize

that you could lose me.

Are you sure you want to suffer

the tortures of a memory of a lost love?

Do you know the tortures of

the memory of a lost love?

It's awful!

It will haunt you night and day!

You'll wake up at night screaming!

You can't eat! You can't sleep!

You'll wanna smash things!

You'll hate yourself and the world

and everybody in it!


Are you sure you want to risk losing me?

Wow, a heart-shaped box of candy.

I'm buying a valentine for Miss Othmar,

my teacher.

It's kind of expensive, isn't it?

The amount of money that you spend on

a present should be in direct proportion... the amount of affection

that you have for that person.

You'd better be careful, Linus.

It's not a good idea

to fall in love with your teacher.

I didn't say I was in love with her.

I merely said I'm very fond

of the ground on which she walks.

Well, I have a problem too.

What do you give a man teacher

for Valentine's Day?

How about shaving lotion?

Do you have any

heart-shaped shaving lotion?

- Did you see that?

- What?

Did you see what Linus bought for me

for a Valentine's Day present?


I'll have to get him a good present too.

What can a girl get a young man

that would be appropriate?

How about a bottle

of heart-shaped shaving lotion?


- One ticket, please.

- Ahhhh.

One ticket, please.

Popcorn, please.

No, I said popcorn, please.

Would you please

just give me some popcorn?





Today's drama is a love story.

Theirs was a true love.

The adventure began when they set off

for the castle in their horse-drawn carriage.

Wrapped in great coats, and warm furs,

the lovers held hands.

Have you ever been

to one of these shows before?

No, I can't say that I have.

Then perhaps I should warn you

about this first scene.

What first scene?

When the carriage crosses

the swollen river.

Through the forest raced the lovers

in their carriage.

- How do you like the show so far?

- It's pretty good, I guess.
