Look at all those poor saps trudging to work on a Monday morning. Ha ha ha, you poor saps, you have to go to work and I don't 'cause I'm a cat! If I weren't me, I wouldn't like me very much.
1 October 1984
It's a real rat race out there. Everybody striving to get ahead. I think I'll go take a nap and fall off the pace.
2 October 1984
SUCK He's so lazy, I could just cry. Burp
3 October 1984
I got you something special, Garfield. It's too light for food, and you can't wrap sleep. It can't be THAT special.
4 October 1984
Good night, Garfield. *CLICK* Don't let the thing in the closet get you. Don't do that to me!
5 October 1984
I think I'll try a two-and-a-half nap attack in the pike position with a half twist. I'll settle for a belly-flop. Z
6 October 1984
HEY, HUBERT! REBA! COME HERE, QUICK! Play cowboy and horsy, boys. Do a handstand, Garfield. Balance on Garfield, Odie. Sad. He should get out of the house more.
7 October 1984
This feels like a great day to spend in bed. Hop up, Garfield. We're gooing on a picnic! Give the bugs and snakes my regrets. I ain't going. I'll get you for this, Monday!
8 October 1984
What's this? I packed the microwave for our picnic. Well, I'm leaving it here. WHA...! If the television stays, I stay.
9 October 1984
Wait 'til you taste my cherry pie, Garfield. It's the world's best. I agree. 22 million ants can't all be wrong.
10 October 1984
The picnic's all set, Garfield. Did I forget anything? You forgot the brick for the tablecloth.
11 October 1984
That pesky wind won't spoil our picnic now, Garfield. Where's the mustard? Under the third rock from the left.
12 October 1984
Well, Garfield, the ants ate my cherry pie. The wind blew the food everywhere. DON'T SAY IT! DON'T SAY IT! What else could possibly go wrong? You said it!

14 October 1984
Good morning, folks! My oh my, it's a beautiful Monday morning out there. Our weather radar shows clear skies with no rain in sight. Except over one house in the suburbs.
15 October 1984
Our satellite picture shows clouds over the northeast, sunny skies in the southwest... Traffic backed up on 12th street... And my little niece, Sally, playing in her sandbox i Texas. Kind of scary, isn't it?
16 October 1984
Wuth. You can always tell when Odie has been eating out of the refrigerator. He gets his tongue stuck in the ice cube trax. Wuth.
17 October 1984
GULP MUNCH SLURP Why do you eat so much, Garfield? In a former life I was a sanitary landfill.
18 October 1984
Clouds are so interesting. I love to find shapes in them. There's a chicken cloud, and a hamburger cloud, and a bicycle cloud. And I do believe that one's a rain cloud.
19 October 1984
What do you think of my new frame, Garfield? ARRRGH! Thank heavens! For a moment I thought it was a mirror.
20 October 1984
PUCUCK! ONE MORE STUNT LIKE THAT AND I'M GOING TO WRING YOUR RUBBER CHICKEN'S NECK! I'm sorry I snapped at you, Garfield? Will you forgive me? I forgive you. SMACK! WHAP! But Stretch doesn't!
21 October 1984
Here comes Arlene. She's crazy about me. Hey, Arlene, what's my most outstanding feature? You're fat. Did you hear that? She admires me for my body.
22 October 1984
Do you love me more than you love food, Garfield? Do chickens have lips? No. Bingo.
23 October 1984
Aren't you ashamed of that space between your teeth? Of course not! It's a sign of sensitivity. I'd be sensitive about it too. I don't know what I see in him.
24 October 1984
Don't you just love sunrise, Garfield? The chirping of the birds...the crisp morning air. The sound of bacon sizzling in the skillet...the smell of fresh brewed coffee. I get the feeling we're watching two different channels.
25 October 1984
Why do you like bachelorhood, Garfield? I can sum it up in a word... "uncomplicated" That sounds simple. Simple, that's me.
26 October 1984
What is love to you, Garfield? Love is that exhilarating feeling you get when a vision of beauty comes walking to you. In fact, I just had that experience. When you saw me? When I saw my mirror this morning.
27 October 1984
POO! KONK! The harder you work for something, the more you appreciate it.
28 October 1984
Garfield, there's a mouse in the house, and I'm just sick about it. It chewed the toe out of my sock. I want you to catch it and kill it. Now I'M sick about it.
29 October 1984
Good morning, mouse. Good morning, cat. Make yourself at home. Gladly. But first, some house rules.
30 October 1984
Hey, cat, gimme a drumstick. Sure. Enjoy.
