* Charlie Brown surprises everyone, himself included, by actually doing well in the decathlon in ''You're the Greatest, Charlie Brown'', but no-one is more surprised than Lucy, and her reactions to his success are some of the funniest moments of the special. When Charlie Brown places first in the discus, Lucy yells, "Stop the world, I want to get off!" And when he takes an early lead in the 1500m, she says, "Charlie Brown has the lead! I may faint!" [[spoiler:Of course, balance is restored when he closes his eyes, misses the first turn in the track, and runs out of the stadium and out of contention...]]

[[AC:1978]]
* A series of strips from December has Lucy talking to Schroeder about a book she's writing about Beethoven, involving multiple scenes of women kicking Beethoven's piano, which Lucy helpfully illustrates by kicking Schroeder's piano. The artwork, where the piano flies into the air, causing Schroeder to be knocked upside-down, really sells the premise. (She also decides to update his life by changing him from a pianist with chronic stomach pains to an electric guitarist with tennis elbow, and at one point has him sit down to dinner with sportscaster Phyllis George.)



* Charlie Brown refuses to try and kick Lucy's football again. As he walks away, he remarks that at least no one else considers him stupid enough to fall for that trick again. He then comes across Snoopy, Woodstock, Sally, Peppermint Patty, and Marcie all holding footballs for him to try to kick.

* ''It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown'' is just full of them, including some taken directly from the comics. Case in point:
-->'''Sally:''' ''(to Snoopy dressed as Santa Claus)'' If you're the real Santa Claus, where are your helpers?
-->''(three Woodstock clones walk by, wearing Santa hats and holding "HELP" signs)''
-->'''Sally:''' That's the dumbest thing I've ever seen!

Unfortunately for Marcie and Franklin, Peppermint Patty bleats over their dialogue:[[note]] The same play includes Peppermint Patty panicking and blurting out random animal noises as seen in the comics from December 1988, and Sally saying "Hockey stick!" instead of "Hark!" as seen in the comics from December 1983.[[/note]]

[[AC:1983]]
* Sally spends several days practicing her one line for the Christmas play: "Hark!" When she finally goes on stage, [[spoiler: she blurts out, "Hockey stick!"]] That night, Sally berates herself, and exclaims that she must have invoked the scorn of Moses, Luke, and [[ArtisticLicenseReligion "all 50" apostles]].
* An excellent BrickJoke is also set up and pays off during this storyline. When explaining her part to Charlie Brown, Sally says that after she says "Hark," Harold Angel starts to sing. Charlie Brown goes with this, assuming that this is Sally confusing "Herald Angel" (as in ''Hark The Herald Angels Sing'') for a person. However, at the end of the storyline, Charlie Brown answers the door, to meet a boy who introduces himself as "Harold Angel." Charlie Brown is left dumbfounded.

* When Lucy is [[http://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1960/06/05 putting a dinosaur skeleton together]], Linus and Snoopy begin dancing and raucously singing "Dem Bones", deliberately mixing the lyrics up ("the knee bone's connected to the wrist bone," etc.) until Lucy hurls them out the front door. The crowning moment is [[UnstoppableRage Lucy's face]] in the panel ''just'' before she does it.
** And just to seal the deal, Charlie Brown's walking by just in time to see it happen.

* Due to being one of the earliest television specials [[note]]a mere two years after ''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas''[[/note]], ''You're in Love, Charlie Brown'' is ripe with EarlyInstallmentWeirdness in its drawings and animation, resulting in many hilarious OffModel expressions not far away from each other, which is considerably rare in a Peanuts special.
