{Caption box in the first panel says Peanuts}
Linus: Look Charlie Brown... you've got to help me break this blanket habit...
{Linus hands Charlie Brown his blanket}
Linus: You hang onto it for me, but don't give it to me even if I beg you for it! No matter what I tell you, don't give it back to me!!
{Beat panel; Linus clutches his chest in pain}
{Beat panel; Linus keels over backwards}
{Beat panel; Linus is lying on the ground with his eyes closed; Charlie Brown's expression is inscrutable}
{Beat panel; Charlie Brown holds out the blanket towards Linus' body}

At the risk of sounding conceited, this is one of my favorite strips I've ever made.
