Lucy tries to get Schroeder to like her. Sally, thinking that Linus gave her a gift, tries to get him
something great so that he will love her, Linus tries to tell his teacher, Miss Othmar, that he loves her, and Charlie Brown desperately wants to get a valentine. In the end, everybody is disappointed, only Charlie Brown is cheered up when he gets a used valentine from Violet the next day, despite Schroeder's reprimanding.

There are also references to romantic literature, infrustration, Linus throws chocolates off a bridge shouting, "Elizabeth Barrett Browning" and "How Do I Love Thee?", as he does so.
