One of my favorite Peanuts comic strips is one where Linus and Charlie Brown are sitting and looking up at a starry night sky.

"Did you know there are a million galaxies," Linus begins, "and within each of those galaxies there are a million stars and around all those stars-"

At that point Charlie Brown interrupts him.

"I miss my dog," Charlie says.
