Oh boy, what a party, I ate too much. I gotta get up and exercise. Here I go. Okay, here I go o the count of three...one, two, three and up! Up...up and exercise. Come on, Garfield. You can do it. This time I'm really going to do it.Here go the legs lifti
1 January 1984
Rise and shine, Garfield, It's a bright new day! It's gonna be a wonderful day, a great day! I think I overcheerfuled it.
2 January 1984
How do you want your coffee, Garfield? Make it sit up and bark. How's this? Just right.
3 January 1984
Oh, no! It's the old "Disguise the tongue as a loaf of french bread" trick!
4 January 1984
Okay, who loosened the top on my saltshaker?! Garfield, that wasn't very nice. You're right, that wasn't very nice. But it was extremely funny.
5 January 1984
Go outside and play, Garfield. Have a good time. "Have a good time." he says.
6 January 1984
Hey, Garfield, don't eat the lasagna yet... It's still too hot. You're telling me?
7 January 1984
8 January 1984
Don't eat me. You're too fat already! Who are you? This is your conscience speaking. I don't have a conscience. I know. I'm free-lancing.
9 January 1984
If you are my conscience, what are you doing in my food bowl? I took on a form you would understand. What do you really look like? Well, if you must know... I look like everyone's mother. Natch.
10 January 1984
Tell me, conscience, just what does a conscience do? It is my duty to make you feel bad about things that make you feel good. That's sad. It's a living.
11 January 1984
Well, conscience, if you don't mind, I'll go to bed now. Tah tah Look both ways before crossing the street. What's that supposed to mean? Sorry, it was just a knee-jerk nag.
12 January 1984
I can't believe my conscience is following me around. I must be cracking up. A little nap-nap should clear my head. You sleep too much. ACK
13 January 1984
Don't you think you should be getting up now? Look, conscience, get out of my life. I have no use for you. Careful, fella. or I'll call my big brother. Who's he? Guilt. On the jogging track in 5 minutes, sucker! Be there!
14 January 1984
Good morning, ham, good morning, eggs, good morning, milk. There's one nice thing about visiting the farm... The food is fresh. Here, lunch. Here, lunch. Uh-oh. This is not good. Garfield! Where have you been?! At Custer's laststand.
15 January 1984
I love it when the good humor man comes. DING DING I love it when I get a popsicle. I hate it when my lips stick to the *@!! popsicle.
16 January 1984
Ever notice how moths circle the light? Like planets orbiting a distant sun. I love it when I get philosophical.
17 January 1984
I wonder what happens when a moth gets too close to the light. AYIEEEE! FOOM! At least he didn't suffer.
18 January 1984
Let us examine a pet phenomenon called the "rips". That's when your pets race around the house for no apparent reason. Other than to mangle the family cat.
19 January 1984
You boys stop racing around. Garfield, slow down! Okay.
20 January 1984
Would you like to go for a walk, Odie? Let's see...I need a leash. You stay out of this.
21 January 1984
I love sacks. I wouldn't kid you, Parnelli. This honey will do 0-60 in 6 seconds flat. I swear, Sally, get your head out of the sand. The sack dress is coming back. I think I'll step into the root cellar and see what's for dinner. -OH, NO! Hello, mainten
22 January 1984
Good morning, Garfield. It's me, Nermal. I'm young and good-looking and you're not. I didn't need that.
23 January 1984
Can I get you anything for breakfast, Garfield? Yeah, how about a big glass of freshly-squeezed kitten juice? You don't like me, don't you?
24 January 1984
How cute! Nermal brought me my newspaper! And my slippers and my pipe! What more could a man want? How about a woman?
25 January 1984
Let's get you into trouble, Nermal. Look in the cookie jar! Look in the cookie jar! No, you can't have a cookie, Garfield, You'll spoil dinner. Thanks for the cookies. Jeff would have known what Lassie was talking about.
26 January 1984
BLUT! BLUT! Call it cruel. Call it juvenile. I call it asserting myself.
27 January 1984
I hate to bother you, sir, but you put insufficient postage on your package. What package? This kitten you're sending to Abu Dhabi. GARFIELD
28 January 1984
Poor me. What a yucky evening. It's dark and rainy and there's nothing on television. I crave sunshine, daisy-filled meadows and good times. I need a ticket out of here. Wait a minute! I have one! SNAP! -
29 January 1984
I wonder how fast I can run. I wonder what would happen if I hit this kitty door at Mach 2. I wonder if killing a mailman is a federal offense.
30 January 1984
I love attacking the mailman. Some days I scratch him. Some days I bite him. Some days I trip him. Today I'm trying something new. * I'm humiliating him.
