What's your name, mouse? OK, gee. I don't think I have a name. - Oh, come on, what do people say when they meet you? - My name is Eek!
1 November 1984
We gotta give you a name, mouse. - How about Crusher? How about Bruiser? How about Cat killer? - How about Squeak? I like it.
2 November 1984
Here, Squeak, let me strap this key to your back. What's this for? - I don't remember buying you a toy mouse, Garfield. - Got the picture? You're a genius!
3 November 1984
- A dimly lit street corner at midnight. This puts me in the mood for some snappy patter. - Hey, good-lookin!. What's happening? Who are you? - Names aren't important. Some call me a soldier of fortune, some call me a renaissance man. You can
4 November 1984
Hide! Here comes my owner! - Why are we hiding? Jon wants me to eat you and I don't want to. - You're so nice! Thanks for thinking of me. I was thinking of me.
5 November 1984
Okay, Squeak, here's the game plan. Every now and then, you show up in front of Jon and dance around until I appear on the scene and chase you away. - In return, you get a nice home to live in, and I get to keep my job. - This is a strange
6 November 1984
Here's your cat food, Garfield. - A MOUSE! - That must be the surprise at the bottom of the box.
7 November 1984
Hey, Squeak, I found a great place for you to live! - Jon will never think to look for you in this old log cabin. - Nice, huh? Is it in a good school system?
8 November 1984
Thanks for the house, Garfield. A man needs a place to call his own. This is great! Don't mention it, kid. - -
9 November 1984
Listen carefully, Squeak. This is a mousetrap. Never, NEVER touch the tab in the center of it. - You mean, this little tab here? - This boy does not take direction well. Hey! That hurt!
10 November 1984
- - WAH HA HA HA! - What a great sundae! Nothing can spoil my day. - SCRATCH SCRATCH - OH NO! MONDAY IS COMING!
11 November 1984
GARFIELD! COME HERE! - "Garfield" this, "Garfield" tah. I'm sick of my name. - HEY, FLEABAG! COME HERE! Then again: "Garfield" does have a certain ring on it.
12 November 1984
OH NO! A FLEA! I'M GETTING YOU A FLEA COLLAR, GARFIELD. Let's not be too hasty here. - Look at those distinctive yellow and green markings there. - This flea is a member of a rare species of vegetarians.
13 November 1984
Well, there's your new flea collar, Garfield. - Wait a minute, there's a disclaimer on this box. "Warning: while this collar will repel fleas..." - "It has been known to attract sharks."
14 November 1984
DON'T TAKE THAT FLEA COLLAR OFF, GARFIELD! Who needs it? - -
15 November 1984
You have a pretty grim flea problem there, Odie. - That's not a very strong flea collar. -
16 November 1984
Did I ever tell you about my crazy uncle Berle? He thought he was a dog. - The poor guy was always exhausted. - He kept chasing himself up trees.
17 November 1984
Can we talk? - I would like to speak to you about how wonderful cats are. - Unlike dogs, they always land on their feet. - They are more calm than dogs. ROWR! - Every movement is a deliberate statement of grace and beauty. - And when it comes
18 November 1984
Doc Boy! How's my favorite little brother? - Oh, things are pretty much the same here, wild parties, good times, the usual... - Uh, you say you're coming to visit? It's put up or shut up time.
19 November 1984
What am I going to do, Garfield? My brother is coming to visit from the farm. - He thinks I live life in the fast lane. "Life in the parking lot" is more like it. - I don't know where he got the idea. It was when you told him you were
20 November 1984
There's my brother now. * DING DONG - Welcome to the big city, doc Boy! Let the good times roll! - Another soda pop? No, I think I'll have some more of that fun-filled popcorn. I'm going to like Doc Boy.
21 November 1984
I'm so embarrassed. Doc Boy comes all the way from the farm just to find out what a loser I am. The truth always hurts. - Hey, where are all those "good times" you promised me? What would you like to do? - Let's go to the airport and watch
22 November 1984
Oh, by the way, Doc Boy, I've fixed us up on a double date. HEY, GREAT! - What's a double date? That's when you and I go on a date together. - Gee, it seems like it would be more fun if some girls came along. There's no hope.
23 November 1984
DOC BOY! OUR DATES ARE HERE! - EEEEEEK! - Can we talk? Can we laugh?
24 November 1984
Z - SNORT! BLINK BLINK BLINK - Rats! It's 4 A.M. and I'm wide awake. - Fortunately, I know what to do. - CLICK - ARRRRRGH! - If I can't sleep, neither will anyone else.
25 November 1984
I wonder who that could be, Doc Boy. DING DONG . Dad! Mom! What are you doing here!? We missed you boys, okay? - A little paint, a few curtains, a woman's touch, this could be nice! My dad, the sentimental fool. My mom, the cliche.
26 November 1984
Your visit is such a surprise, mom. When's the last time you and dad went out? We haven't been off the farm since '53. I don't believe that. - Good heavens! What's this? That's an indoor toilet, dad. - WOO-HA! AIN'T SCIENCE SOMETHIN'? FLUSH
27 November 1984
- You awake, Jon? click OF COURSE NOT, DAD! IT'S 5 A.M.! WHAT ARE YOU DOING UP? - I GOTTA MILK SOMETHING! I'm leaving.
28 November 1984
You forgot this when you left home, Doc Boy. Thanks, mom, I haven't slept a wink without it. - Whatcha got there, Doc Boy? NOTHING! NOTHING! IT'S NOTHING! - Could it be a shred of your old blankie? Careful what you say about blankies,
29 November 1984
Uh, mom...I wouldn't open that if I were you. - EEEK! - SOMETHING IN THERE MOVED! I'm sure it was just an optical illusion. GO ahead, tell her how the lunch meat has evolved into an intelligent life form.
