Just an old man with an opinion, a website and stories to tell.
Robb, I can’t tell you how helpful it was to have that February 2nd “Who’s Who.” Without it, I would have lost track of the fact that Sarah is Delray’s mother. Seriously, thanks again.
Tiff, meet Tiff.
I see what you did there…well done.

As more than one has pointed out, one day that number won’t ever call again. Answer it every chance you get because one day you’ll give everything and anything you own to hear the voice at the other end.
Ok, let’s try this again. The joke runs for 43 years starting in 1956. 23 years after the joke run starts, in 1979 Lucy doesn’t pull the ball away, but Charlie Brown kicks her hand instead of the ball (keeping his streak of missing the ball alive). After 1979 til the end of the strip run, she’ll always pull the ball away. Thanks for visiting my site…:)
I wrote about the origin of this gag on my website 2 years ago. Lucy is not the villain in the ongoing gag. She is seeking revenge for an injustice done to her by Charlie Brown. https://wsash.com/the-birth-of-the-greatest-peanuts-gag-ever/
According to IMDb, the last line was “What do we do now?” But, your recollection of the quote was what I thought I remembered as well. That said, you win the internet today for remembering that excellent movie and applying it to this strip.
Ding. Ding. Ding. We have a winner!!!
I expect to be in the minority opinion here, but I’ve worked retail before and frankly think that Frank’s response was rude. The clerk doesn’t know if the shoes are for him or for a wife and/or child around the corner in the next aisle. It’s a logical question and Frank deserves the service he’s going to end up complaining about.
