    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Sally, Peppermint Patty, and Lucy look at the earth and talk about it Sally talks about the Pilgrims crossing that great big ocean. Then we see a close up of the Pacific Ocean, and not the Atlantic Ocean.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Welker: As we have been reporting, the space station has many purposes. It will be a permanently manned research laboratory in space for the study of science and technology. For future exploration to Mars and beyond, the space station will be a permanent point of departure. And for mankind, it's another major step towards living and working beyond the Earth.

      • Lucy: Okay, you blockheads. Get ready. The TV people will be here any second.
        Linus: And you know what I'm going to tell them? That we're all about to mutiny. Because you are the worst commander there's ever been.

      • Franklin: How in the world did they pick you to be spacecraft commander?
        Lucy: NASA couldn't resist a pretty face.

      • Linus: It says on those pictures from NASA that America's next space station will be launched in the mid-1990s. It will carry a crew of eight and the eight will be together for ninety days.

      • Lucy: This is ridiculous, that bird could never fly right on earth. How in the world is he supposed to fly in zero gravity?

      • Sally: Ninety days with Linus! My dreams have come true!

      • Charlie Brown: This time I'm going to kick that football.

      • Lucy: Besides zero gravity, everything on earth is the same as it is here.
