There's conversation in the Peanuts comic strip between Peppermint Patty and her friend Marcie. They are walking to school and Peppermint Patty says, "I'm going to ask the teacher if I can be Mary in the Christmas play this year."

Marcie answers, "She already asked me, sir."

Patty continues, "I think I'll be great in the part."

Marcie says again, "She asked me yesterday."

Ignoring her, Patty declares, "I really like the part where the angel Gabriel talks to me."

Exasperated, Marcie says, "Why would Gabriel talk to you? You never listen!"
