OK, this is from page 123 of The Complete Peanuts, 1967 to 1968 (Fantagraphics):
Charlie Brown: "Okay, let's run through the two's first...What is two times seven?
Sally: "One million?"
Charlie Brown: "You're guessing!"
(You can figure out the setup—Sally has asked her "dear brother" to help her with her "times tables.")
I thought I'd share the strip right under it, too—CB asks Sally to calculate 3 x 0, and she takes increasingly absurd stabs in the dark: "Four thousand? Six? Eleventy twelve? Fifty Quillion? Overly-eight? Twiddely-two?"
