Charlie Brown sits on a low bench facing Lucy's Psychiatric Help booth. He says, "I could never say anything.."<BR><BR> Lucy leans her feet up on the desk. Charlie Brown faces out, and goes on: "I always wanted to go up to that little red-haired girl and talk to her, but I just couldn't.."<BR><BR> He raises his arms, and, in profile, explains, "I couldn't start a conversation because I was such a nothing and she was something."<BR><BR> "If she had wanted to talk to me, it would have been easy because someone who is really something can go up to someone who is nothing, and just talk!"<BR><BR> Lucy turns to Charlie Brown. She places her chin on her hand and comments, "I think your problem is mathematical, Charlie Brown." "Mathematical?"<BR><BR> A side view of Lucy behind her desk. She says, "If you add nothing and something, what do you get?" Charlie Brown replies, "Something, I guess."<BR><BR> Charlie Brown faces the side. Lucy, with her chin in her hand, continues: "Right...Now, if you subtract nothing from something, what do you get?" Charlie Brown answers, "Something."<BR><BR> "Very good...Now, if you multiply something by nothing, what do you get?" Charlie Brown opens his arms and declares, "Nothing."<BR><BR> "Five cents, please!"<BR><BR> Charlie Brown sits by himself. He says, "When you're a nothing, you have a hard time undestanding anything!"<BR><BR>
