You're getting a little pudgy there, Garfield. Maybe you'd be more attractive to the ladies if you'd suck your gut in. And then again, maybe not.

Here comes Arlene. She's crazy about me. Buenos dias, mon sweet. I knew you'd come back to me. Of course you did, fatso. You're sitting on my rubber mouse.

If there is such a thing as reincarnation, I'd like to come back as a movie star. What would you like to come back as, Garfield? What a silly question. A dogcatcher, of course.
