LE>You”re A Good Man, Charlie BrownYou”re A Good Man Charlie Brownwritten by Clark Gesner, from the comic strip by Charles SchultzCharlie Brown: I think lunchtime is about the worst time of day forme.Always having to sit here alone. Of course, sometimes, mornings aren”t sopleasant either. Waking up and wondering if anyone would really miss meif I never got out of bed. Then there”s the night, too. Lying there andthinking about all the stupid things I”ve done during the day. And allthose hours in between when I do all those stupid things. Well, lunchtimeis among the worst times of the day for me. Well, I guess I”d better seewhat I”ve got. Peanut butter. Some psychiatrists say that people who eatpeanut butter sandwiches are lonely…I guess they”re right. And whenyou”re really lonely, the peanut butter sticks to the roof of your mouth.There”s that cute little red-headed girl eating her lunch over there. Iwonder what she would do if I went over and asked her if I could sit andhave lunch with her?…She”d probably laugh right in my face…it”s hardon a face when it gets laughed in.

There”s an empty place next to her onthe bench. There”s no reason why I couldn”t just go over and sit there.I could do that right now. All I have to do is stand up…I”m standingup!…I”m sitting down. I”m a coward. I”m so much of a coward, shewouldn”t even think of looking at me. She hardly ever does look at me.In fact, I can”t remember her ever looking at me. Why shouldn”t she lookat me? Is there any reason in the world why she shouldn”t look at me? Isshe so great, and I”m so small, that she can”t spare one littlemoment?…SHE”S LOOKING AT ME!! SHE”S LOOKING AT ME!! (he puts hislunchbag over his head.) …Lunchtime is among the worst times of thedayfor me. If that little red-headed girl is looking at me with this stupidbag over my head she must think I”m the biggest fool alive. But, if sheisn”t looking at me, then maybe I could take it off quickly and she”dnever notice it. On the other hand…I can”t tell if she”s looking,until I take it off! Then again, if I never take it off I”ll never haveto know if she was looking or not. On the other hand…it”s very hard tobreathe in here. (he removes his sack) Whew! She”s not looking atme! I wonder why she never looks at me? Oh well, another lunch hour overwith…only 2,863 to go.Kudos and much thanks go to “Face” for the donation of this monologue,it is very much appreciated. < please return to the main movie monologue page >
