I love you, coffee; you make me glow. You make me smile. I love you so. My nerves don't like you, but what do they know?
1 October 1982
Now for a strong cup of coffee. Now for a good night's sleep. Now for a brisk bout with insomnia.
2 October 1982
What's that rumbling? The ground is shaking! Oh, no! It's THEM! THERE'S NO WAY OUT! I'M TRAPPED LIKE A RAT! ARRRGH! -
3 October 1982
ARRGH! Very funny, Odie. Now get your face off the window.

5 October 1982
I got you a new friend, Garfield. He even talks. Oh, goody. Will you play with me? Why, of course, little buddy. Let's go play with Jon's power tools.
6 October 1982
I wonder what that bag of sawdust has to say. Feed me. Feed me. Feed me. Feed me. Feed me. He does have a certain charm.
7 October 1982
Imagine, the nerve of Jon giving me a dummy as companion. What kind of an intellectual dwarf does he think I am? Practice of the Aristotelean mean would have a significant positive effect on the world institutional environment. Oh, shutup.
8 October 1982
Your little friend here is certainly cute, Garfield. stomp! stomp! stomp! Little friend or not, there's something to be said for the diplomatic removal of competition.

10 October 1982
Maybe I wouldn't hate mondays so much if I didn't have this calendar here to remind me. -
11 October 1982
That hamburger is mine, Garfield. It's mine. Let's see if you want it after I stomp it, lick it and shed on it. You win, Garfield. You can have it. I don't think I want it now.
12 October 1982
POP! POP! POP! POP! POP! POP! POP! Let me guess. You're going tree climbing, right? How did you know?
13 October 1982
Now to get out of this tree. Don't you dare! sniff sniff
14 October 1982
I wish you understood my every word, Garfield. I could tell you I love you. I understand how you feel. I love me, too.
15 October 1982
I love it when you cuddle up to me, Garfield. What a warm and wonderful gesture. My nose was wet.
16 October 1982
SMACK! HEY! tickle tickle tickle STOP IT, GARFIELD! YOU PLAY TOO ROUGH! I'm sorry I yelled at you, Garfield. Cats have feelings too, you know.
17 October 1982
I'm not leaving bed, I'm not moving a muscle. If I don't bother Monday, maybe Monday won't bother me. Hello, I'm Nermal, the world's cutest kitten, here to visit for the week. Well, maybe I will do just a teensy bit of sobbing.
18 October 1982
The mirror is one of cat's best friends, Nermal. You can primp in it, play with it and admire yourself in it. I don't see what's so great about it.
19 October 1982
Follow me, Nermal. This is how you climb a tree. Now what do we do? What a silly question. We sit here until the fire department comes.
20 October 1982
lick LICK What happened to you?
21 October 1982
How cute. Thank you, Nermal. Uh...thanks. You'd better appreciate it, sucker. Your flower garden gave its life for this bouquet.
22 October 1982
Tell me, Garfield, are you threatened by the fact that I am much younger and cuter than you are? I'm bigger than that. You can say that again! See how they like your rapier wit on the moon.
23 October 1982
24 October 1982
Get ready to go, Garfield. We are going to visit dad and mom on the farm. Send my regrets. I really must stay home and pluck my nose hairs. I guess I'm ready to go.
25 October 1982
SPUT SPUT WEEEZE GURGLE SPUT The car has stopped and it's getting dark. What should I do, Garfield? I con only think of one thing. MAKE IT GO
26 October 1982
We're stranded, Garfield. We'll have to find somewhere to spend the night. What about that place? Cute. A little paint, a few curtains, and it would be a regular love nest.
27 October 1982
I guess we'll have to stay in this abandoned house tonight, Garfield. Garfield R.I.P. 6-19-78 10-30-82 I can't put my finger on it, but I have an uneasy feeling about this place.
28 October 1982
This house is spooky, isn't it, Garfield? Kind of reminds me of the vet's office. Uh-oh, footsteps! Quick! Into the closet! CLOMP CLOMP What do you suppose it is? CLOMP CLOMP Let's hope it's the welcome wagon.
29 October 1982
CLOMP CLOMP It's coming to get us, Garfield. It knows we're in the closet! -ARRGH! DAD! You didn't show, so I came looking for you. One life down, eight to go.
