We're going to see your veterinarian today, Garfield. She's one cute chicky-boo. I'd marry her in a second. It's comforting to know the high values placed on the sacred institution of marriage are still with us today. In a half-second!

That Liz is sure a great looking hunk of veterinarian. She has the one quality I desire most in a woman. She's breathing.
2 October 1979
Be right with you, Mr. Arbuckle. I'll be here with bells on, doctor. That makes for an interesting mental picture. Why does she always put me down? You're so putdownable.
3 October 1979
How about going out with me, doctor? I wouldn't go out with you if you were the last man on earth. Then how about sometime after that? That's a good one.
4 October 1979
Why won't you go out with me, doctor? Because I hate your guts. Does this mean marriage is out of question? Don Quixote strikes again.
5 October 1979
How about a date, doc? No way. Mmmm Great! See you at eight. If you can't convice'm, confuse'm.
6 October 1979
Caution Hmmm, wet cement. SPLUT! OOPS! BARK! BARK! slurp Lassie would have gone for help.
7 October 1979
I suppose you want to know how my date went with Liz, the vet...well, don't ask. I won't. She didn't show. Old Jon just stood up. I don't want to hear about it. You know, Garfield. I like you better than people. Tell me more.

My aunt Evelyn is the neatest cat I know. She plucked all the hair off her body so she wouldn't shed on the furniture. Now she's living with a family in L.A. that thinks she's a Chihuahua.
10 October 1979
YIP! YIP! YIP! YIP! YIP! YIP! For the last time, Odie, YOU chase the TAIL.
11 October 1979
Garfield, must you do everything I do? That wasn't very nice. After all, cats are just little people with fur and fangs.

23 October 1979
Ingredient: gunk I suspected as much.
24 October 1979
For the last time, NO, Garfield. What's the problem? He wants to see a wine list.
25 October 1979
You may have the leftovers when I'm through, Garfield. KONG! You don't have to be patient when you're as big as I am.
26 October 1979
Are you still having breakfast? You've spent an hour eating your cereal. You know I don't like raisins.
27 October 1979

28 October 1979
Good boy, Garfield. Give me the paper. Either I get breakfast or you'll never see this paper alive again. WHY IS THERE ALWAYS A STRING ATTACHED?! Nothing's free, pal.
29 October 1979
FLIP! I can take a hint.
30 October 1979
I have something for that appetite of yours, Garfield. Close your eyes and open your mouth. -
