Here go the legs lifting the body...now! - This time I'm really, really going to do it...one, two, three...Hi ya! - Have you been up today, Garfield? I think so.
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.

Go outside and play, Garfield. - Have a good time. - "Have a good time." he says.

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!

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
OH, NO! - Hello, maintenance? Call the exterminator, my condo has dogs.
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.
