Peanuts – Contacts - Shaun Richens.

1. Peppermint Patty sits at her school desk. She is turned facing the desk behind her. A perplexed look on her face, she strokes her chin as if trying to solve a complex riddle.

         PEPPERMINT PATTY: What’s different here?

2. We pull back to see MARCIE sat behind Patty who still looks puzzled. Marcie is not wearing her glasses but does have a lovely smile on her face.

         NO COPY.

3. Close up on Marcie.

         MARCIE: I got contacts Sir.

4. Repeat of panel 2. However now Peppermint Patty has turned to face away from Marcie.

Peppermint Patty has raised her hand.
         PEPPERMINT PATTY: Ma’am, Marcie is acting weird. 


  1. This page is about as perfect as can be. It reads just about how I would imagine a script of this nature to be. :^D

    1. Wow thank you for the kind words man, means a lot as this was your pick and one I could tell you had so much love for.

      As soon as you made the pick I knew I'd be writing Peppermint Patty and Marcie as I've always had a huge soft spot for them!

  2. I actually read over this one a few times before it clicked with me, but that was more my fault than the scripts.

    This is a super cute look at Peppermint Patty and Marcie's relationship. Hat's off to you, sir.

  3. Nailed the tone. Nailed it.

    Good show, Sir! (pun slightly intended)

  4. You've done Mr. Schulz proud. Perfect strip, Mr. Richens.
