00:22:07 Yes, sir.
00:22:08 I'll boil them, sir, then you'll paint them.

00:23:09 That's funny. [ Sniffs ] It smells like soup.
00:23:12 Oh!
00:23:14 Marcie! You've made egg soup!
00:23:18 Aaugh!
00:23:22 Chuck, I just don't know what to do.
00:23:25 We've ruined three dozen eggs, and we don't have any colored yet.
00:23:30 I've run out of money, and I can't buy any more eggs.
00:23:33 How am I going to teach my friend here about easter and coloring eggs when I can't get any eggs to color?
00:23:41 Don't worry about it.
00:23:42 The Easter beagle will come, and you'll see.
00:23:44 He'll bring Easter eggs to all the little kids.
00:23:47 Kid, I hope you're right.
00:23:49 I don't want my little friend here to be disappointed.
00:23:52 She won't be.
00:23:53 On Easter Sunday, the Easter beagle will brighten everyone's day.
00:23:57 Everyone will be filled with great warmth and friendship.
00:24:03 It's really a waste of time.
00:24:05 The Easter beagle does that.
00:24:07 Leave me alone.
00:24:08 Don't bother me with your stupid ideas.
00:24:11 Easter is very simple.
00:24:12 ..
00:24:15 You hide the eggs, and you find the eggs.
00:24:19 And you know who's going to find the eggs?
00:24:22 Me, because I'm the one who's going to hide them.
00:24:51 Well, Marcie, I'm really sorry.
00:24:54 Here it is, Easter morning, and we don't have any colored eggs.
00:24:58 I'm the one who's sorry, sir.
00:25:01 I guess I'm not much of a cook.
00:25:03 I've seen this happen on holidays before -- you look forward to being real happy, and then something happens that spoils it all.
00:25:12 You've done it again, haven't you?
00:25:15 I've been sitting here since dawn waiting for the Easter beagle!
00:25:20 Where is he?
00:25:22 I don't know why I always listen to you.
00:25:25 I never learn!
00:25:27 You said the Easter beagle was coming!
00:25:31 Well, where is he?
00:25:37 I know why they have holidays.
00:25:39 They have holidays so people can get together and have fun.
00:25:44 So why am I alone?
00:25:47 This is going to be the greatest easter egg hunt ever, and I'm going to find them all.
00:25:59 I'm the laughingstock of the neighborhood.
00:26:03 You've made a fool of me!
00:26:05 Why do I always !
00:26:08 "Trust me," you said.
00:26:08 " now I've been burned again.
00:26:15 Never trust a man with a blanket.
00:26:18 Get me my lawyer!
00:26:18 I've been humiliated!
00:26:45 Is it?
00:26:47 It is!
00:26:48 He's coming!
00:26:48 He's coming!
00:26:50 The Easter beagle is coming!
00:27:04 Thank you, Easter beagle!
00:27:04 Thank you!
00:27:07 Thank you very, very much!
00:27:12 Thank you!
00:27:52 See? Linus was right.
00:27:54 There is an Easter beagle.
00:27:57 Some Easter beagle.
00:27:59 He gave me my own egg.
00:28:03 What do we do with the easter eggs now that we have them, sir?
00:28:09 We eat them.
00:28:09 We put a little salt on them, and we eat them.
00:28:19 [ Crunching ] [ gulp ] tastes terrible, sir.
